Only three huh?
Well that still might be useful. Thanks.
Edit: Alright. Desert Voe set upgraded. Next up, getting the Rubber Armour for the complete Rubber Set.

Alright. I got the Rubber Armour and have completed the Rubber Set. I also finished the Tarrey Town quest.
My next order of business is to get the Rubber Armour up to Level 3, but it's not even past Level 1 yet. Where do I get Volt Fruit?
Voltfruits are in the Gerudo desert, on the cactii there. One of the vendors in Gerudo Town also offers them for sale, IIRC.
They grow on desert cacti like dragonfruit.
Cool. Back to the Desert, with my cool Desert surviving armour too!
Alright. Got the volt fruit I needed and upgraded the rubber armour by one more level. I also got the Gerudo set and entered the city (which is how I got my last three volt fruit).
Now I need 10 more Zapshroom and 10 more Yellow Lizalfos tails. I only have five of each.
The lizards I can kill while going around the desert, so that leaves the mushrooms. Hopefully, I remembered to take a picture.
There are zapshrooms along the non-climbing path towards Zora Domain, particularly in the first third or so of the path.
The entire path is also a nice way to build up your regular arrow stash. Most of the Lizalfoses drop one or two sets of 5x arrows when you kill them. Even if not using an Ancient Bow while wearing the upgraded Ancient Armor set, with its 72 79 pt damage thanks to the Ancient Proficiency damage bonus of +80%, you still come out ahead in arrows. Depending on how many monsters and Blights you've killed to that point the path maxes out at one silver Lizalfos, and a few black Lizalfoses, but the rest are the weak green types.

So that's where I go them.
I must have missed that. Anyway, I'll give it a shot, though apparently, I can just buy some at Gerudo Town. I might just keep that in mind to be honest.
The merchant only sells three of them, though.
As for arrows, I find it's better if you come at the path from the Zora city end. Coming at it "backwards" does mean it's longer to get to the zapshrooms if that's your primary focus, but the monsters are primarily oriented to face towards those coming from the wetlands end of the path, so it's easier to get in close.
I think you can also buy arrows in Tarrey Town
Yeah. You can get them in sets of 10. Every type but ancient in fact.
Yes, but the key word is "buy". With arrow harvesting on the Zora path, you not only get the arrows but monster parts to sell, or use in upgrades or potions.
Mind you, as I've repeatedly said in this thread over time, I'm a massive arrow whore (to the point that right now I have over 900 regular arrows, and 100+ of the other kinds including Ancients). My priorities may not work for others.
Well what the heck else am i going to do with my massive collection of rubies and sapphires? Im glad to buy them
A majority of that over 900(0!) are purchased... and I'm at over 700K rupees right now. "Have to pay for them" is not a serious impairment of making money hand over fist once you get past the first 50K or so.
Regarding zapshrooms, the other place they're common is Akkala. Search the wooded parts.
I believe every collectible respawns during a Blood Moon, so keep that in mind
Huh... I use arrows way too often to accumulate that many. I guess the flip side is that I tend to hoard melee weapons (well, maybe "hoard" isn't the right word; I just don't go through them as quickly). I guess I like to shoot first.
Mind you, if you want to play ambush style in terms of the path to the Zoras, if you're sufficiently good at climbing regardless of the weather (or you've cleared the divine beast and it's no longer permanently raining), it's remarkably easy to climb around the various choke points in the path and then get some stealth kills. I usually did a variation where I'd snipe one at a time, ramping up their anxiety and watching it fall down so that I could do it again. Solid Snake is not the only one who finds The Guards Must Be Crazy.
I also use Ancient Bows a lot, mostly with the Ancient Armor set equipped, so for all the non-silver, non-Lynel enemies, it doesn't take a lot to kill them. I also only have that much because I had just finished a round of the towns, stables, and wandering merchants, plus a Zora path sweep.
And tangentially, for all my arrow farming, until just a bit ago I hadn't bumped up against the 999 limit. A bit annoying to get the "can't carry any more" notice. (And purely for informational purposes, if you get a bundle but are only one or two arrows short of the cap, any arrows from that bundle beyond the cap [for example, picking up a 5x bundle when you have 998 arrows] just vanish.)
Ah, that's a bit more aggressive than my usual style, which is to grab a higher-end enemy bow and skulk around with the stealth set equipped. I much more fond of The Joys of Torturing Mooks. Perhaps a little heavier on the arrow consumption, but it's fun being the terror that stalks the terrors.
I had a problem when people would stop restocking their stores with arrows once I hit a remarkably low total arrow count. 2 or 3 hundred arrows (including the elementals) and suddenly no one would restock, even after blood moons. I enjoy the implication that I had used every arrow in Hyrule
You have to have less than 40 of a given type before they can restock that type, plus a blood moon to get everywhere to restock, it seems. (Previously I didn't think a BM factored into it, but it does seem to have an effect. Only a couple of stables had Beedle with arrows when I was running low earlier, with the others I checked being out until afterward.)
I'm not sure, from what little testing I've done, but I don't think using regular arrows for making Ancient ones counts, they have to be fired.
Stores that sell monster parts will restock them after a blood moon. (They have to wait for their supply to respawn, same as you.) I think other types of supplies have their own restock schedules, though.
Which stores sell monster parts?
I only need four more Yellow Lizalfos tails, but if I can just buy them, I'm cool with that.
No stores sell those.
One of the vendors in the Kara Kara Bazaar on the way to Gerudo Town sells the regular green kind, but not electric.
Only three merchants offer monster parts: Bokoblin guts at the Kakariko Village shop (80r), the green Lizalfos tails mentioned above (112r), and Beedle offers Octo Balloons (20r) at Dueling Peaks and Highland stables.

Yeah... if you want to get yellow Lizalfos tails, your only choice is to the Gerudo Wasteland and hunt around the sands for them. Those are probably the foes I was most glad to fight via archery first and foremost; their electric field attack was such a pain to deal with when they got in melee range (particularly if you run into them at night and thus have to switch from the Desert Voe armor set). For the record, I typically ran into them most north of Gerudo Town.
