                         ----Update Version 1.00 [Cmplt]----
    Completed the Gratitude Crystal FAQ 2 days ago, so you can also check that out
    but I decided on the Heart Piece guide today. Collecting the Heart Pieces as
    you go, much like other Zelda games, is very hard to do, and most times require
    returning at the end of the game or near so to collect them. I'm not 100% sure
    what points in the game you can acquire each individual heart as I gathered
    them at the end, but I will add which items/weapons are required or used to
    obtain each heart. I hope that helps and I hope you enjoy my guide!
                       ----Update Version 1.10 [Modified]----
    Noticed I missed a Heart Piece found in a Goddess Cube in Eldin Volcano and was
    advised by multiple sources that the Heart Piece found in the Skyview Temple
    could be obtained with the standard Beetle and didn't require the Tough Beetle.
    Also updated the Eldin Volcano Heart Piece as apparently it wasn't "in the
    open" enough for a couple people. Fixed a numbering error as well. Thanks for
    all the feedback guys, once I have access to internet again I will be starting
    a Walkthrough Commissioned FAQ next. Find anymore errors please feel free to
    contact me!
    *Note that I didn't have a proofreader on this FAQ like I did the Gratitude
    Crystal FAQ, this is why there were multiple errors.
    The Heart Pieces in Skyward Sword are all scattered around the world from in
    the sky, to under the clouds, to in Goddess chests which you must find and
    activate, then finally minigames and character rewards.
    The Heart Pieces are extremely helpful in this game unless you are either very
    good with your shield like me, or if you have loads of time to earn money and
    gather bugs for Guardian Potions +'s especially in the Hero Mode replay where
    everything does double damage.
    If you require any further help or a description on something, don't hesitate
    to send me an email at <shawn.naugler@hotmail.co.uk>.
