One option is selling their corpse while the other is cooking the parts first then selling them. Each choice is determined by your urgency in the game.

Monster parts pay handsomely compared to other rupee generating endeavors. Lizfalos, for instance, offer 28 Rupees foe their tails, 10 for horns and 15 for their talons. Keez and Octocrock eyeballs offer 20 and 25 Rupees respectively.

8. Mining

just like in the real world, mining pays handsomely. The ores mined vary in prices( rarely found diamonds are highly priced at 500 Rupees compared to topaz, ruby, and sapphire that go for 180,210 and 260 Rupees respectively). There are other less valuable minerals that also offer a respectable amount of rupee(Amber 30 Rupees and Opal 60 Rupees). They are usually easily found compared to others.

Mining is fairly easy. You can use a sledgehammer, or weapons to burst open the ores.

You can choose to upgrade your armor or keep them for future trade.

another alternative “mining” is not by actually tampering with the earth crust.It involves beating minibosses-Stone Talus(eight in number in Hyrule). They characteristically drop ores when defeated. Their re-appearance after the blood moon offers another opportunity of “beat-mining”.To be successful at this, you need to have a sledgehammer to execute the task successfully. Apart from gaining the Rupees, you can use the precious metals to upgrade your amour.

9. Sale of Ancient Parts

The game offers an option of selling your ancient parts that you no longer value. It is advisable to do this when you have maxed out your ancient upgrades. The parts sold vary in prices eg a giant ancient core goes for 200 Rupees.

10. Scanning Your Amiibo

There are usually a variety of drops when you scan your Amiibo. This happens once a day. The drops range from Rupees, crates to ingredients. Some of which you can opt to trade in exchange for Rupees.


11. Following the Recipe

Hyrule offers one of the most bizarre ways to make Rupees. Actually, it’s so bizarre that the rewards are so high. You get to follow a pre-determined recipe to reap your rewards.

Arguably Lynel parts offer the best rewards. The combination that yields the highest number of Rupees are four Lynel guts and a tireless frog, which produces an Enduring Elixir. This can be sold at 2,300 Rupees. This is closely followed by 2,250 that can be obtained by selling an Energizing Elixir. An Energizing Elixir is made by bundling together four Lynel guts and a restless cricket. However, if you are not lucky enough, two Lynel hooves, a high tail lizard and towLynel guts will give you a Hasty Elixir. This is worth 1,400 Rupees each.

Hyrule offers a good gaming experience riddled with many tasks. You will definitely be forced to make strategic choices to raise Rupees to accomplish your mission.
