Location and Use
Salvage Arm is received from Eddo at his garage. Unlike the cannon, the salvage arm is bought by blowing or yelling into the Nintendo DS's built-in microphone. The price is determined by how hard Link yells or blows.
The Salvage Arm allows Link to pull of Treasure Chests from the sea floor. Once a Treasure Map has been found, an 'X' will appear on the Sea Chart. This is where treasure can be found. Once Link activates the Salvage Arm, the young hero begin a mini-game in which which he must lower the claw down avoiding obstacles such as rocky walls and Octomines, an underwater form of Octorok. There are also Rupees in bubbles that can be collected. Once Link reaches the treasure on the seabed, the young hero must to pull it back up, again dodging the obstacles.
The Salvage Arm has a life gauge. It has a number of life points which are reduced by one for every obstacle hit. If Link damages the Salvage Arm to the point where it has no life points left, it breaks and can be fixed for a fee by the man in the Shipyard on Mercay Island.
- The Salvage Arm replaces the Grappling Hook's crane feature at sea. In The Wind Waker, when the Grappling Hook is equipped aboard the King of Red Lions, it becomes a mechanical crane which allows Link to pull up Treasure Chests from the seabed.
