I have recently gotten The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time and I got to the point where I have to fight King Dodongo but I ran out of bombs so I went to the Bazzar in Hyrule Castle Town but when I try to buy bombs the owner just says "You can't get this now."
And they are only 35 rupees and I have like 71. Is something wrong with my game?

No, you need a bomb bag. While you're fighting King Dodongo, use the bomb flowers that grow around the area where you're fighting. They'll grow back so you'll never actually "run out" of bombs. Have fun! I envy you for playing through it you're first time...if I could only go back to 7th grade

I have a bomb bag and I've tried to use the bomb flowers but they always blow up before I can throw them into his mouth!

you can get bombs for slashing grass just like rupees, iirc... it might take you a while to get your bag full, though.

If you can't nail the timing on the bomb flowers, go thru the temple to find some bombs, in pots or kill some enemies or something. The game probably won't sell you the bombs yet because you're not supposed to leave the temple halfway through. Try getting some more bombs, kill King Dodongo, and then try and buy the bombs; the shop should sell them to you once you've defeated the temple.

moral of the story: always save your game before fighting the boss; if you die, you'll end up back at the temple entrance anyway, so you may as well have the ability to reload the game and have all your stuff available still. :3

I think the reason you can't buy bombs yet is because its the Gorons that supply them or at least the ingredients, so storyline wise they wouldn't be selling them until the Gorons are all freed and their storyline situation dealt with.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

O.K. I beat King Dodongo and I have another question.
No matter where I save at I always end up back at my house when I load my game.
Is it supposed to do that or is something wrong with my game?

O.K. get your thinking caps on, cause I got another question!
Once I called Epona, and she got caught by a tree, I got on her and she got caught on a tree root, next time I played I called her and she came as normal but I'm wondering, how do you get her off of a tree root?

Not sure, but when I call her she never comes. Not sure what she's stuck on in my game.

I was at the tree near the entrance to Kokori Forest.

@Stevie
What song are you talking about?

@Stevie: Hahahahaha!

@gamerboyshadow5: Yeah, that has happened to me maybe once or twice when I first played the game too. Usually I have my horse parked outside the forest, waiting for me. I would suggest running out into Hyrule Field first, if you are coming from the Kokiris.

Here ye, here ye, I have another question!
I beat the Water Temple yesterday and Ruto said that the people of Zora's Domain would go back to normal (I guess she meant that they would unfreeze.), so I went there and it was still frozen. Do I need to do something to unfreeze it or does it just not unfreeze?
