Get the Mirror Shield.

This shield upgrade can deflect more types of projectiles than the regular shield, and it's a lot larger. To get it, you must have beaten the game and saved, and completed the Goron sidequest (the one that gets you the bottle). Fuse with the Goron all the way on the right in the cave where you got the bottle; this will make Biggoron appear on top of Veil Falls, near the whirlwind which takes you to the Cloud Tops. Make sure you have a shield with you, and go talk to him. He will ask if he can eat your shield. Let him. Don't buy another shield, but come back a while later, talk to him, and he will give you the Mirror Shield.

Dark Nut Killing

An easy way to kill a dark nut is to use the Dash Attack. If you use it, you will run right "through" him, and he will be confused for a while. Then, do it the other way to deal 2 hits on him!

Area/Level Hints

Skip Puzzle in Temple of Droplets

Partway through the Temple of Droplets, you will come to ride a lily raft through some icy rooms. North of a room with flies (west and north of the refight with the first mid-boss) is a twisty room with a block puzzle. Use the raft to reach the first gate switch, but then abandon the raft and swim east, to a dead end. When you return, your raft should be gone, but if you cut across land to the end of the room, you should find it in the northeast, having already bypassed the puzzle. In addition, if you leave through the northeast door and come back, the block puzzle will be permanently solved.
