How to Find the Legendary Hammer


If you decide to avoid all the optional areas, and only follow the main story, you'll first get the Legendary Hammer from Shangri-Spa, by buying it from one of the Snifit. You must first rescue the Orange Snifit from the bridge that leads to Spring of Jungle Mist. Once he's rescued, go to his stall at the southwest corner of Shangri-Spa to buy the Legendary Hammer.
