Common Knowledge:

Intro

The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker is a great game, overlooked by something little as some cartoon-like graphics. It was released in North America in March, 2003.

The main character is a young boy named Link (or whatever you name your file). You find yourself sleeping in what seems to be a tall lookout tower, until your little sister, Aryll, wakes you up. She reminds you that is your twelfth birthday and your grandmother wants to see you.

At your grandmother’s house, she gives you your birthday present. It’s a green tunic, and you comment that it’s way too warm to be wearing something like that. You return to Aryll, and she has a present for you, too! It is her most prized possession, her telescope. After a short cut scene of a large ship attacking a giant bird with a girl in it’s talons, you head off to find the girl.

After saving the girl (Tetra), she asks you to find a shield. Go to your grandma’s house, go up the ladder, then go back down, and your kind old grandmother will give you the Hero’s Shield. Return to Tetra, and your adventure starts here!

Upgrades
Wallets
The wallet you start out with may not be good enough for it holds only 200 rupees. There are two rupee bag upgrades that will let you hold a lot more rupees:

Outset Island - in the forest at the top of the island. Bomb the giant rock and jump down the hole. A fairy will give you a wallet that holds 1000 rupees.

Northern Fairy Island (sector A3) - walk into the giant shell and fall down the hole. The fairy will give you an upgraded wallet that holds 5000 rupees.

Magic
As you progress, you will find you don’t have enough magic. Go to sector G4, look for a clatter of seagulls above the water, go there and a giant squid should appear. Hit each of it’s eyes with your boomerang until the eye goes black. After defeating the beast, a fairy will appear and give you a larger magic meter.

Arrows
The starting amount of 30 arrows isn’t very much. Luckily, there are 2 places to upgrade your quiver:

Thorned Fairy Island (sector D7) - use the Skull hammer to hit the switches. The fire should disappear. Go into the seashell, down the hole, and get the 60 arrow upgrade from the fairy.

Western Fairy Island (sector C1) - again use the Skull hammer to hit the switch. The fire should disappear. Go into the seashell, down the hole, and get the 99 arrow upgrade from the fairy. Again.

Bombs
Like the Arrows, you start out carrying only 30 bombs. There are two places to upgrade your bombs:

Eastern Fairy Island (sector C5) - simply bomb the stone in front of the seashell, jump down the hole, and get your 60 bomb upgrade from the fairy.

Southern Fairy Island (sector F4) - bomb the wooden gate blocking the entrance to the giant seashell. Go down the hole, and get the 99 bomb upgrade from the fairy.

Bomb Island (E6) - find the floating submarine and enter it. Defeat all enemies, then open the chest to claim your prize.

Windfall Island - after the 2nd visit to the Forsaken Fortress, a girl will be standing near the auction room at night. Talk to her, then follow her and try not to get caught. Or, for an easier way, just run to the stairs to the Café. Crouch down on the bottom few stairs, and wait for her to come. She will go in the parka guy’s shop and try to rob the vault. Talk to her, then give the first answer to eack question to win the bottle.

If you hook up a GBA using the GC to GBA link cable, and then use the Tingle Tuner, you can have a friend play as Tingle and help you throughout your quest. He has many special items you can use (for a price, of course):

Seagull Pen (0 rupees)- used to mark areas and direct Link to them
Tingle Bomb (10 rupees) - …just like regular bombs but can blow up walls in the main dungeons normal bombs couldn’t (see Tingle challenges section)
Tingle Balloon (30 rupees) - let’s Link cross large gaps
Tingle shield (40 rupees) - protects Link from damage for 40 seconds
Kooloo-Limpah! (40 rupees) - either refills Link’s health and magic, gives a 20 second shield, gives a 20 second shield and balloon, or nothing at all.

Tingle Challenges
There are two main Tingle Challenges:

Tingle Statues - there are five Tingle statues (1 in each main dungeon). There is one in the 1st floor of Dragon Roost, in the room on the way to the boss key, with the place to use the grappling hook. Use a Tingle bomb in the place that looks useless. There is one near the entrance way to the treasure chart room in the basement (1) of the Forbidden woods. In the Tower of the Gods, the Tingle Statue is located on the motionless platform in the room with the rising platforms and the Beamos, on the 2nd floor. In the Earth temple, the statue is on Basement floor 1, left of the bridge you crossed on your way down. Get there with your deku leaf. Finally, the last statue is in the Wind Temple, in the room where Makar got kidnapped,. Use the Deku leaf to reach the far platform.After all that, go visit Tingle in sector C3 and he will give you 500 rupees.

Knuckle’s Challenge - on Outset Island, use the Tingle Tuner. Walk along the beach near your Grandma’s house until you get a message from Knuckle. He will ask you to go to four locations: the pool north of your grandma’s home, the ladder leading from the water to the lookout tower, stand on the rock on the very top of Outset, then jump down off the bridge to the rock below (careful for that one). After that you can use the Hand me Down Tingle Tuner.

Beedle
Across the Great Sea there is a merchant named the Beedle. He appears in sectors B3, B4, B5, B6, C2, D2, D5, D6, E4, F3, F6, and G2.

Bosses
Gohma - use Grappling Hook on the Dragon’s tail above 3 times, then use Grappling Hook on the eye and hit it with your sword many times.

Kalle Demos - use your boomerang on the cords holding him to the ceiling, then attack the little plant inside. If you are fast enough, you can beat him before he closes up.

Gohdan - hit each hand with and arrow. Then throw a bomb in his mouth. Repeat. Dodge his attacks and you’ll be fine.

Helmaroc King - wait for him to land, stand by his feet, and let him try to peck you. Dodge the peck, and when his beak is stuck in the ground hit it with the Skull hammer. When the mask breaks, you can use the sword instead.

Jalhalla - reflect the light using your Mirror shield onto him. When he falls to the ground, pick him up and through him into a spiky pillar. Kill as many Poes as you can, then repeat.

Molgera - use your hookshot on his tongue, then hit his tongue with your sword. Repeat, and enjoy the catchy music. Dee dooo dee do do, do do dooo…..

Puppet Ganon 1st form - cut all his strings with your boomerang, and hit his tail with the Light Arrow 3 times.

2nd form - push down on the C stick. You should be able to see the ceiling using the reflection in the water. When Puppet jumps up and spins, make sure where you are is where his blue tail lands. Again, hit it with the Light Arrow 3 times.

3rd form - simply hit his tail three times with the Light Arrow. If it helps, shoot his face with a normal arrow, and he should stop moving for 1 second. Then hit his tail 3 times.

Ganondorf (part 1) - the last boss in the game is actually quite simple. Make sure he is in between you and Zelda. When he is stunned, run up to him and slash him with your sword.

Part 2 - While Zelda is down, you must attack him with Parry’s. Wait for him to try to attack then Parry.

Part 3 - He will go down in 1 famous shot here. Talk to Zelda. She will aim at your shield. When she shoots, use your shield while targeting Ganondorf, then run up to him when he is stunned and hit A. Congrats, you are done the game!

Picto Box
To get the Picto Box, you must first release Tingle from jail. Enter his cell and move the crate using R. There should be a hole in the wall. Hold R and crawl in. These are turns you must make to get to the Picto Box: right, left, straight, right, left, straight, left, right, right, straight, then right. Open the chest and you have the Picto Box!

Deluxe Picto Box
After getting the Picto Box, go visit Lenzo in his shop on Windfall. Go upstairs, and speak to Lenzo. He will send you on “missions”. For the first one, wait for the man in the red to come to the red post box in Windfall. Right as he is putting the mail in the box, take a picture. Make sure you took a full body picture, Lenzo is pretty picky. Bring it back to Lenzo. The second one you have to go to the café during the day. Ram against the wall and take a full body picture of the cowering man. Take that picture back to Lenzo. For the last one, wait outside of Lenzo’s shop. There should be a lady in orange near the entrance to the game room. When a man walks by and stops, and then they look at each other, snap a picture. Take that last picture back to Lenzo. Then warp to Forest Haven and catch a bright yellow bug in a bottle near were the Deku tree is. Take that to Lenzo, and he will give you the Deluxe Picto Box!

Magic Armor
The Magic Armor is item you obtain by trading multiple items. Go to the same guy who sold you your sail, and buy a town flower. Take it to Greatfish Isle (D2) and trade it with the Goron. He will give you a Sea Flower. Trade the Sea Flower with him, and he will give you an Exotic Flower. Take the Exotic Flower to Bomb Island (E6) and trade it for a Sickle Moon Flag. Go back to Windfall and talk to the parka guy. He will give you Magic Armor.

Cabana Deed
If you give Mrs. Marie in her classroom on Windfall Island 20 Joy Pendants, she will fork over the cabana deed. Go to sector E5 and show the Cabana Deed to the door (yes you heard me lol). That’s your own personal Cabana!

Heroes Charm
If you give Mrs. Marie in her classroom on Windfall Island 40 Joy Pendants, she will give you the Heroes Charm. To equip it, press start, then R. You should see it under where it shows your sword, shield, power bracelets, etc. Select it and press A. Then select equip. You can now see your opponents health when you L target it!

Triforce Parts
After you finish the Wind Temple, you will need to find the 8 pieces of the Triforce of Courage. You first must find the Triforce charts, which must be deciphered in sector C3 for 398 rupees:

Chart 1 - sector E2, piece located in D2
Chart 2 - sector E5, piece located in A4
Chart 3 - sector E7, piece located in E3
Chart 4 - sector A5, B3, C7, D2, E6, F1, or G7 (look at your Ghost Ship Chart, see Items section), piece located in G2
Chart 5 - sector E1, piece located in F7
Chart 6 - sector G2, piece located in E4
Chart 7 - sector E3, piece located in A6
Chart 8 - sector A7, piece located in G4

After you get the chart deciphered by Tingle, go to the located places. A glowing spot should be in the water. Use your Grappling Hook to grab them up.

Second Quest
After you defeat the final boss, a short cut scene will play. Then it will ask if you want to start a new quest. In the second quest, Link keeps the pyjamas he had in the beginning (well actually his tunic is invisible), and Aryll has a red dress instead of a blue one. The Hylian text hat before just seemed like a bunch of gibbled “f’s” is now plain English, and you start out with the Deluxe Picto Box (if you got it in the last quest.

Last Words
Well, this could be the first sticky on the Wind Waker board. Hopefully, this will reduce the amount of annoying question topics. Thanks to everyone!

Ok, go ahead and post now. Ideas of anything I’m missing would help, and please try to keep this bumped!
