ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ============================================================================== 01. REVISION HISTORY ============================================================================== Version 1.1 (01/31/2005) The US version of the game turned out to have just a slightly different translation here and there, and nothing more. So there's no groundbreaking updates here, but I've received a lot of feedback concerning this FAQ, so I guess it's time to give credit to my contributors. What's new in this version: - I've received so many e-mails concerning the third Bomb Bag, I just have to update before they become too much to be counted :) - There's a new note concerning Fusion 067. Pretty important one, I may add. - I've added an alternate way to go through room 2F-7 in Dark Hyrule Castle. - I've made a minor correction ("east" instead of "west") in Section WK:07. - I've added the description of an attack of Vaati's final form. - I've added the notorious "Link's room's Secret" to the "Miscellanea" section. - Finally, I've made a couple corrections in the FAQS section. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Version 1 (11/30/2004) This FAQ is practically complete as it is. It covers the full walkthrough and all the sidequests I could think of. It won't probably need an update until the US version of the game comes out next January, unless there are some major mistakes to correct. ============================================================================== 02. WALKTHROUGH ============================================================================== ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FOREWORD ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This walkthrough covers the entire main quest of the game. I have tried to avoid any kind of spoilers, although at times I felt that a summary description of what is going on was necessary for better comprehension of the events. I have also put in some sidequest tips whenever they don't make you deviate from the main path too much. If you think this is too much of a spoiler, please let me know and I may consider removing them from the walkthrough. Use the Index of Contents at the beginning of this document to browse the walkthrough quickly. I hope you will find my ASCII maps as useful and comprehensive as you need them to be. However, please note that the game's mapping system is somewhat puzzling at times, so I had to arrange my maps to make them more clear than those you will see in the game. Below you will find a summary map of the land of Hyrule. It may be of some help in case you need a quick reference. ________________ ________ ________________ ________ ________________ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Hyrule Castle | | | | | Royal | | Veil | | | Mt.

When he wakes up, get out of bed and go downstairs and into the room on the right. There will be some more chitchat, after which you're free to leave the house. Before you do, open the nearby chest to find 20 Rupees. Outside, you can lift bushes to find some more Rupees (well, if you're lucky :) When you're done wasting time, follow Princess Zelda north until the two of you enter Hyrule Town. At the festival, you can talk to anyone in sight, but there's nothing major to get. When you want to proceed with the story, go to Zelda and talk to her. After the chitchat, she'll move to some other location and you'll have to follow her and talk to her again. At her fourth stop, Zelda will play a game and win a present for you, a shiny new SMALL SHIELD. A true love gift if I ever saw one :-D Now the way north to the Castle is accessible, so you'd better get going. In North Hryule Field, the lovely princess will again go ahead on her own, but she'll be stopped by a Business Scrub. Stand some distance away in front of the Scrub and hold up your shield to open the way north. Now go to the Castle and see what happens... When you regain control, step out of bed (what, again!) and go to the next room. You'll receive the SMITH'S SWORD and a MAP OF HYRULE. The latter shows your current destination, i.e. the Minish Woods. Get out of the Castle and you're free to explore Hyrule... well, actually only a very small fraction of it. There's currently nothing major you can collect as of now, and you can't access Hyrule Town at the moment, so you'd better hurry to the Minish Woods. Back to North Hyrule Field, head east, then south. Soon you'll come to a line of small trees – cut them down with your sword to open the way east to Lon Lon Ranch. Now keep going south, past the Ranch area and through Eastern Hills, until you spot a bridge on your right. That's the entrance to the Minish Woods. In the Woods, go east until you can, then south (you can't go north because of the deep water). Keep following the only accessible path until a scene takes over. Now, before you go back to check the situation, go a little more to the left to collect PIECE OF HEART #1. Then, backtrack to the crossroads and defeat the two Octoroks to trigger another scene. When it's finished, start walking to the south again. Ezlo will complain about you going too fast. Ignore him and keep going. He'll bark two more times before he finally has a better idea ^_^ Now walk south until you see a tree stump. Step on it and press the R button, and – magic! You're so little that the icon coming out of your head is actually a lot bigger than your body ^_^ Now you can walk through the tree trunk on the left. On the other side, use the water-lilies to cross the pond and step down on the other bank. North of here is a Minish road, just walk it through until you get to Minish Village. After the welcoming ceremony, go right and to the north until you get to a small lake and some wood bridges. First, it's advised that you follow the bridge on the right – this will take you to PIECE OF HEART #2, which doesn't hurt to collect. When you have it, go back to the previous screen and cross the bridge in the middle of the lake to enter the abbey. Here, talk to Festari to receive some info on what to do next. Now retrace you steps until you get to a small bridge taking to a barrel house. Climb down the ladder to enter the house. Walk up and move the box sideward to open the way. Past it is the JABBER NUT. With it, you'll be able to talk to the Minish. Now go back to the north of the town and go left from the abbey. The next house you'll find is the village elder's. Enter it and speak with the elder himself to get permission to access the shrine. After that, return to the abbey and talk to Festari again to open the way north. Get out and keep going north until you enter Deepwood Shrine. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:02 Deepwood Shrine ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- | 1F | ---- ____ | 2 | _|_BK_|_ | | | 1 | |________| ---- | B1 | ---- __________________ | 13 K 12 11 | ____|___ |___ ___|____|____ | 6 | K 8 | |_ __| 5 | 4 | 10 |__ _| | 7 | | | | 9 | |____|________ ___|_________| | | | 3 | |__ K__| | | | 2 | |__ __| | | | 1 | |__EN__| ---- | B2 | ---- ____________ | 1 | 4 | |K______|___ | | | | | 2 3 | | | | |_______|____| B1-1. This is the entrance to the Shrine. Walk up and move the statue to the left to open the way to the north door. Go through it. B1-2. The north door is locked. There are four torches in this room, and a switch beside each torch. Defeating the enemies should they get in your way, step on each switch to light the four torches. A chest will appear, and inside it is a SMALL KEY. Use it on the door. B1-3. Watch out for enemies falling from above. Go up and grab the lever coming out of the wall. Pull it until it triggers the bridge to extend. Cross the bridge and grab the mushroom from the right. Pull it until you can, then release the R button and press the D-pad in the opposite direction. You'll land on the left side of the room. Continue north. B1-4. Go right and up the steps, and step on the switch you'll find. After that, go back down and enter the barrel. Take the opposite exit and work your way south and to some more steps. Climb them and get on the right side of the statue. Push the statue on the switch, then step on the other switch. Now, re-enter the barrel and make it roll until the opening on the left shows some steps in the lower-left corner. Take those steps and you'll get to the lower- left exit of the room. B1-5. Go left and up, and pull the mushroom downwards until you can. Then, release the grip and press upwards to get on the far shore to the north. Climb the steps and open the big chest for the DUNGEON MAP. Now go back to the mushroom and pull it as much as it takes to land you near the middle-left door. B1-6. Kill all the monsters in the room, then go to the pot and push it to the right until it rests upon the switch. Cross the bridge that will extend and proceed. B1-7. This is a tricky room. Pull either statue on the nearby switch, then move to the other statue. Pull it backwards once so that you can enter the middle area, then pull the statue towards the middle until it rests on the switch. This way, you'll be inside the square when the chest appears. Get the SMALL KEY that's inside and return to the barrel in B1-4. Once inside the barrel, make it roll until there's an exit in the upper-right corner. Take the exit and go open the locked door on the right. B1-10. Pull the mushroom upwards just as much as it takes to land you on the next platform. From there, go left and press the switch to extend the bridge, then use the second mushroom to reach the southern exit. B1-9. Kill all the enemies, then go to the right statue and pull it to the right of the switch. Now go to the other statue and push it until it rests on the switch. Go on upwards. B1-8. Kill all the enemies in this room and you'll get a SMALL KEY. Now exit on the left and you're back to B1-10. Take the upper exit. B1-11. Drop down the edge of the ledge and go left to B1-12. There, press the switch to open the southern door, then go left and use the key in the locked door. B1-13. MINI-BOSS: Madderpillar Hit the monster on the face to stop it momentarily. When it's frozen in place, its weak spot – the tip of its tail – will be vulnerable. Hit it until the Madderpillar regains its senses, then move away because the monster will move faster for a short period, during which it will be invincible. When it's back to normal, repeat the procedure. You will have to do this 2-3 times to defeat it. Beating the Madderpillar nets you the GUST JAR. Use it immediately on the rightmost spiderweb on the southern wall to open a passage leading to PIECE OF HEART #3. Then, return to B1-12. B1-12. Use the Gust Jar to remove the dust from the floor. You'll find three switches that will allow you to get 20 Mysterious Shells. You'll also create a blue teleport. Now go to B1-11 and do the same for 20 more Mysterious Shells, then come back here and take the southern exit to B1-4. B1-4. Push aside the block and go left to remove some more dust and find still 20 more Mysterious Shells, then enter the barrel. Use the Gust Jar to suck away the spiderweb, and walk towards the hole you've opened up until you fall down to the room below. B2-2. Use the Gust jar to attract the water-lily and step on it. Now you can use the Gust Jar to move on the water – just blow out some air in the direction opposite the one you want to go to. At the first crossroads, go right. B2-3. Go to the steps and climb them. Push a pot on the switch to open the way up, then go back on the water-lily and go north. B2-4. Go to the end of the water path and step down on the north shore. First, go right and push up the rightmost block. Now push aside the other block and open the big chest for the COMPASS. Next, go left and push a pot on the switch. Cross the water with the water-lily to get to the chest, which contains a SMALL KEY. Now step back on the water-lily and backtrack to B2-2, and from there, take the upper passage to the locked door. Open it. B2-1. Use the mushrooms to cross the ponds. For the mushrooms that are out of reach, use the Gust Jar. Open the big chest to find the BIG KEY, then press the switch to create a red teleport. Step on it to return to the entrance. B1-1. Use the blue teleport to get to PIECE OF HEART #4, then go back to the entrance and use the Gust Jar to remove the spiderweb on the left. Go upstairs and move aside the block in front of the chest to get 20 Rupees, then go back downstairs and remove the spiderweb on the right. Climb the stairs. 1F-1. Use the mushroom to reach the big door and open it. 1F-2 BOSS: Big Green Chuchu The Big Green Chuchu moves around the room. If you get too far from it, it will jump to where you're standing, so roll away to avoid getting hit. To defeat it, you must use the Gust Jar on its "foot". Watch out though, for while you're sucking away at it, the boss will be attracted towards you. When you've sucked away the foot, the Chuchu will wobble for a while, then crash down to the floor. This is when you can hit him with your sword. After some hits, the Chuchu will be back on its feet (well, foot) again, and its first attack will be to jump on you, so move out of the way. Repeat the sequence three more times to defeat it. Watch out on the fourth round, as the boss will jump more than once as soon as it's standing again. When you win, you'll receive the EARTH ELEMENT and a HEART CONTAINER. Use the green teleport to get out. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:03 After Deepwood Shrine ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Return to Minish Village and go speak with the elder again. He will allow you to leave the village from the western exit of his house. So, get out that way and enter the first Minish house you'll find. Here, Belari will give you a BOMB BAG. Now get out of here and walk south to the tree stump, and get back to normal size. Now you can follow the path. A little to the north, check that strange obelisk to uncover a mysterious symbol. You'll find out what's it for later, so don't worry for now. Use the bombs to free the way and get back to Eastern Hills. You're free to explore the whereabouts, so make yourself acquainted with the places you'll see and use those bombs to blow up some rocks and walls. When you're ready to go on your adventure, head to Hyrule Town. As soon as you step into town, the Hurdy-Gurdy Man will appear and give you a KINSTONE BAG. He will also make a Fusion with you, opening up the way to PIECE OF HEART #5. From now on, you can make Fusions with people, provided you have some Kinstone Pieces of course. The first thing you have to do in town is to go to the house left of the bridge, near the town entrance. This is Swiftblade's dojo. Have Swiftblade teach you the SPIN ATTACK. You'll also receive TIGER SCROLL #1. Now you can explore the town and make some Fusions, if you wish. One good thing you can do is collect 80 Rupees, then visit the shop and buy a BIG WALLET to extend your Rupee capacity. Also, go to Mayor Hagen's house and exit through the back door. Climb down the ladder and retrieve the Kinstone Piece in the chest, then fuse it with Hagen himself (see Fusion 002). Finally, you should check the strange obelisk near the northern exit of the town. When you're ready, go to the north-west exit of Hyrule Town. Speak with the soldier, then face away from him, charge the Spin Attack, and release. The soldier will let you pass and you're free to go to Trilby Highlands. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:04 Mt. Crenel ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Make sure you have 20 Rupees; if you don't have them, get some until you have at least 20. When you have them, climb down the ladder near the entrance to the Highlands and bomb the right wall. Hit back the Business Scrub with its own nut, and speak with him to buy an EMPTY BOTTLE. This is of capital importance for what's to come, so make sure you buy it. With the Bottle, go north, then at the small lake, head west and all the way to Mt. Crenel Base. Here, use your Bottle in the pool of deep water to the south to fill it with water. Now approach the sprout at the base of the cliff, and pour the water on it to make it grow to a vine. Climb the vine and follow the path up, then left, then down. Now you can go left or right – take the left road and you'll get to a point where you're just above the area where you entered Mt. Crenel Base. There's a ladder on the ledge above you, and a tall vine on your right. Place a Bomb on the wall, between the wooden poles, and you'll find a secret passage. Go through the cave and climb up the ladder. Now you're on top of the ledge. Blow up the nearby cracked rock with a bomb, then step on the big grey stone and press the R button. As a Minish, go to the right and into the Minish road. At the end of it is a pool of CRENEL HOT SPRING WATER, which we'll refer to as "green water". Put it inside your bottle, then backtrack to the portal and turn back to normal size. Jump down the edge of the cliff and proceed to the right. Soon you'll come to a crossroads. Left is a cave where a Business Scrub sells you 10 bombs for 30 Rupees, and to the north is a fragile wall. Blow it up and enter the cave. Inside, use the mushroom to reach the other side, and go upstairs. Cross the next room and reach the exit. Outside, go down and jump into the vortex. Float until you get into the next vortex, and from there, move upon the ledge on the left. Ignore the ladder for now, and take the path going up. In the next screen, place a bomb between the two trees to find a secret cave. Inside the cave, use bombs to obtain a blue Kinstone Piece, 50 Rupees, and PIECE OF HEART #6. When you're done here, get out and go back to the ladder you saw before, and climb it. Use your Gust Jar to suck up all those puffy-looking things from the ground. This way, you'll uncover a crack in the ground and, most important, a stone portal. Use the portal to get to Minish size, then fall down the crack in the ground to find a Minish and a red Kinstone Piece. Get back out and follow the path leading east, at the end of which is a vine that will take you to a cave. In the cave is a blue Kinstone Piece. Still in Minish size, head all the way left and into the Minish road near the green sprouts. At the end of this road you'll find a big seed. Pick it up and carry it out of the road and into the hole in the ground at the base of the cliff. When the seed is in place, get back to normal size and go water it with the green water you found earlier. Climb the vine that will grow. Now you're on Mt. Crenel itself. Climb the first ladder you'll see and go left. See that strange wall? That's the Crenel Wall. You can't climb it yet, but take a look at the wall to the right of the signpost. See that free spot in the line of pointy rocks? Place a bomb there and the wall will blow up, revealing a cave that hides PIECE OF HEART #7. Climb down the ladder and go east. Follow the path until you see a bridge, and cross that bridge. At the end of it is a solid wall – that is, it's solid until you blow it up with a bomb. Enter the cave and get the blue Kinstone Piece from the chest, then go upstairs. Use a bomb to destroy the cracked blocks, then push upwards the two blocks on the right to clear a path. Get out. Use the vortexes to reach the ledge on the left, and climb the ladder you'll find. At the top of it, head east until you see a fragile wall. Destroy it and enter the cave, where a Business Scrub sells you the GRIP RING for 40 Rupees. You can't continue without the Ring, so you'll have to buy it. With the Ring, go back to the base of Crenel Wall and start climbing. While climbing the Wall, take the right path and you'll see a ledge with a signpost. Go there and use a bomb to blast the nearby wall. Enter the cave and you'll find a fountain. Drop a bomb, pick it up and throw it in the fountain. A big fairy will appear and ask you whether you dropped a Gold Bomb or a Silver Bomb. Be honest and answer "Neither", and the fairy will reward you with a BIG BOMB BAG. Now get out and keep climbing the Crenel Wall to the top. At the top of Crenel Wall, go right and use the mushroom to get to the other side. Here, use the portal and access the Minish road to the south (watch out for the raindrops!). Once on the other side, use the portal to get back to normal size, then go left to push the boulder in the hole. What you have to do next is to push the boulder that you'll find south of the second portal into the hole just to the right of the first portal. To do this, push the boulder left, up twice, left, up twice, left four times, down, then left until you're past the first boulder, then all the way up, and finally, right into the hole. Now just push the remaining boulder out of the way, and climb down the ladder. In the cave, take the leftmost path and go down, then left. Push away the top block, then the lower block of the next line. Now push away the block that's just above the one you've just pushed, and go down to push downwards the block you'll find. Now go up and push upwards the block, then go left, down, and push to the right the lower block in the column of two. Also push to the right the block that's above the line of four blocks. Now there's three blocks left to move. Move the side blocks downwards, then move the middle block to the left. Go down and exit the cave. Outside, go right and into the next cave. You'll see a mushroom, but you mustn't use it. Instead, break the two pots and use the Gust Jar to attract the mushroom from the other side of the pit. Once on the other side, go downstairs. Here you'll find a short bridge. Drop a bomb, pick it up and throw it to the other side of the pit. It will explode and activate a switch that will extend the bridge. Cross the bridge and get out. The next cave has a boulder and a hole in the ground. To push the boulder in the hole, move it down, left twice, down twice, left three times, up, left, up, and left into the hole. Push up the statue and go downstairs. Here, push aside the lower block of the first column, then the block just above it, and the upper block of the second column to reach a chest with a blue Kinstone Piece. Now you can leave the cave. Outside, use the portal to get to Minish size and enter the Minish road. At the end of it are Melari's Mines. Go see Melari and speak with him. After the dialogue, climb the steps and talk to the Minish in front of the exit. He'll move out of the way, allowing you to get out. Use the portal and get back to normal size, then check the obelisk. When you're done, climb the ladder and enter the Cave of Flames. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:05 Cave of Flames ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- | 1F | ---- _______ | 4 3 | |_ _|___| | 1 2 | |EN_|___| ---- | B1 | ---- ___________ | K | | | 8 7 | |_ ___|___ _| | 6 | __|_ _________|__________________ | | K | |3 | 2 | 1 | | |__|___ __________________________| | | | | | | | 4 | 5 | | | | |___________| ---- | B2 | ---- _____________________________ | 1 | 6 | 4 5 | |____|___ _|_BK__|__ ________| | 1 | | ___ | | | | 3 | | 2 | | |_____|___________| ---- | B3 | ---- _____ | | | 1 | |_____| 1F-1 The entrance to the dungeon is here. Take the eastern exit. 1F-2 There are Bob-ombs here. You want to blow up the northern wall. There are two ways to do it – either use one of your own bombs, or hit a Bob-omb twice to stop it, then pick it up and place it in front of the wall. When you're done, go up. 1F-3 Use your shield to flip over the Spiked Beetles and hit them with your sword. When they're gone, a big chest will appear. Open it to get the COMPASS. Now go west. 1F-4 Watch out for the Rupee Like in the bunch of Rupees. Go downstairs. B1-1 Follow the only available path until you find a mine cart. Hop inside to get to the next room. B1-2 Go left until you find a fragile wall, and bomb it to open a way ahead. B1-3 Defeat all the Helmasaurs to make a portal appear. Use it to get to Minish size and take the upper Minish exit. Then, keep following the Minish passages until you get to B1-5. B1-5 Follow the path to the left and down, then drop down the edge and go to the portal to get back to normal size. When you're big, you can useyour sword to extinguish the flames. Go up the steps and retrieve the DUNGEON MAP from the big chest, then go back down and step on the stones to cross the lava pool. The stones will crumble and collapse shortly after you've stepped on them, so be quick (however, the stones will reform after a couple of seconds). Stop by the chest to collect the blue Kinstone Piece that's inside, and press the switch to open the southern door. Then, proceed on the stones to reach the exit. B1-4 Use the moving stone to get to the other side, but be quick to dismount or it will crumble and let you fall into the lava. On the other side, hit the Rollobites to make them curl up into a ball, and throw them into the holes in the ground. The chest contains 50 Rupees. Go up the steps and use the two vortexes to reach the upper-right corner of the room. There, step on the switch to open the door, then push up the pink block and push the pillar with the chest all the way left until it sinks into the hole in the ground. Open the chest for a SMALL KEY, then take the northern exit. Go right and hop into the cart. At the end of the track, use the key in the nearby door and proceed left. Use your sword to flip the switch, then hop back into the cart. When you stop, go left and into the room above. B1-6 Use the rails to cross the lava pool. On the other side, blast away the south wall and go get PIECE OF HEART #8, then come back here and take the upper exit. B1-7 Jump down the edge and you'll be attacked by a lot of Spiny Chuchus. Use bombs and your sword to defeat them. When they're gone, a big chest will appear. Open it to find the CANE OF PACCI. Proceed to the left. B1-8 Step on the first stone and use the Cane of Pacci to flip over the second one. On the other side of the lava pool, use the Cane on the hole at the base of the wall. Enter the hole and press Down on the D-pad to land on top of the wall. Press the switch to open the door and to create a blue teleport, then go to the room below. Use the Cane on the mine cart to flip it over, and hop into it. At the end of the tracks, push the pillar with the chest on top all the way up and into the hole. Inside the chest is a SMALL KEY. Now go back to the room with the blue teleport and unlock the northern door. Go downstairs. B2-1 Use the portal to shrink to Minish size, then go left, past the traps and through the Minish passage. Follow the path between the pink blocks to the next portal, and use it. Now get back out of the block maze, avoiding the Traps on the way, and flip over the cart. Use it to go back to the previous half of the room, then flip the switch and hop back into the cart. B2-2 Hit the Rollobites and throw them into the four holes in the ground. Then, pull the pillar with the switch backwards, then up and into the hole. Hit the switch to open the way back to the previous room. B2-1 Go to the end of the ledge and drop down to a chest with a blue Kinstone Piece inside. Move aside the blocks and use the Cane of Pacci in the hole at the base of the wall to get up to the chest with a green Kinstone Piece. Now proceed to the room on the right. B2-3 From the entrance, go down and use the Cane of Pacci to flip over the spiky platform. After that, wait for the platform to reach its highest point and to start coming back down. When it's beside the other stone platform, step on it and let it take you downwards. When you see the next platform, quickly flip it over, step on it, and flip over the platform that comes from the right. Step on this one and let it take you to the next ledge. Now go up and flip over the platform you'll see, and use it to reach the next ledge. From there, step on the platforms to get to the northern exit, using the Cane to flip over the spiny platforms. B2-4 Drop down the edge and go to the far right for a chest with a green Kinstone Piece, then come back here and use the Cane in the upper hole. Jump on top of the wall, drop down on the other side and use the Cane again into the new hole. Jump up to the vortex and float to the ledge to the north, then proceed to the next room. B2-5 Use the vortex to get upon the ledge on the other side, and follow the path back to the big room. B2-3 Use the vortex to get to the lower-right corner of the room, and use the vortex there to get first to the chest containing 100 Rupees, then on the ledge you can see on the left. Use the Cane in the hole, jump up to the ledge above and keep using the vortexes to get to the lower-left corner, where you'll find a chest with a green Kinstone Piece. Now use the vortexes to reach your final destination – the ledge in the middle of the room, where a big chest with the BIG KEY awaits you. From there, jump down to the north and activate the switch to create a red teleport, then go left and use the moving platform to reach the boss door. B2-6 Stock up on Hearts and catch a fairy in a bottle if you want, then fall down the hole to the Boss' lair. B3-1 BOSS: Gleerok Gleerok turns his head around its body, following you around and spitting flames that keep on burning when they hit the ground. Quickly circle around it and shoot its body with the Cane of Pacci. If you hit it, Gleerok's neck will collapse. Use it as a bridge to reach its body, and hit the body with your sword. After some hits, Gleerok will regain its senses and disappear under the lava. Rocks will fall from above, while the lava pool will expand until there's but a thin strip of ground for you to walk upon. Stand in one place and move a little to the left and to the right to avoid the falling rocks, and wait until the lava pool turns back to its normal size. At that point, Gleerok will surface again and spit out a lot of fire. Run to avoid it. Then Gleerok will resume its normal attack pattern, so you can attack him again. It takes 20 hits from your sword to defeat Gleerok. When you win, you will receive the FIRE ELEMENT and a HEART CONTAINER. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:06 The Elemental Sanctuary ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Return to Melari's Mines and speak with Melari to receive the reforged WHITE SWORD. Now get out again, turn back to normal size, and drop down from the edge south of the portal. Go all the way east, then climb down all the walls you'll find to reach Mt. Crenel's Base. Return to Trilby Highlands and this time, cross the bridge over the lake. On the other side, go east to North Hyrule Field. Here, use the Cane of Pacci in the hole and jump up to where a lever is. Flip it with your sword to extend the bridge that will take you back to Hyrule Castle. Now enter the Castle. Go to the corridor just outside the throne room and take a stair leading down. On the lower floor, follow the red carpet and you'll find a door through which sunlight can be seen. Go through it and proceed north to the Elemental Sanctuary. In the Sanctuary, go north and use your sword on the pedestal. A scene will occur. When you regain control, stand on one of the two glowing tiles and press and hold the sword button until the green meter below your life energy is full. When it is, DON'T release the sword button, but keep it pressed and walk over the other glowing tile. If you did everything right, a clone of yourself will be created. This technique will be necessary in many places from now on, so if you see any glowing tiles, try using it. Now you have to get out of here. It's quite simple, actually. Go south in front of the door. There are four glowing tiles here. Split into two again on the two middle tiles, and walk down so to position the real Link and the clone on the two switches. The door will open, and you're free to leave the castle. In North Hyrule Field, a scene will occur. When it's over, you'll have to fight two Moblins. Defeat them and you will be told Ezlo and Vaati's story. Now you should head for the third Element. But first, there's a lot of things you can do. For instance, you can move slightly to the west of the place where you fought the Moblins and blow up that cracked rock. Go down the ladder and down the steps in the cave to find PIECE OF HEART #9. There are many things you can do before you proceed to the third dungeon. Here's a list: - Visit Swiftblade's dojo in Hyrule Town and learn the Rock Breaker technique. You will also get TIGER SCROLL #5. - Stockwell's shop sells a BOOMERANG for 300 Rupees. Although it's not compulsory, you may buy it. - In Hyrule Town market, there's a spot with a lot of dirt on it. Remove the dirt with the Gust Jar, and Beedle will eventually come to the market to sell his goodies. - Now that you have the Cane of Pacci, you can flip over the blue vases in the houses and use them as portals to the Minish world. You should explore the town as a Minish. Cross the tiny wood bridge near the dojo and go speak with the dog on the western side of town – this way, he'll move out of the way and you'll be able to visit this area in normal size too. As a Minish, you can also collect PIECE OF HEART #10, and you can make Fusions with animals. - Go back to Mt. Crenel, where you bought the Grip Ring, and climb up the nearby wall. You'll find a cave. Inside, split in two and pres the switches to access Grayblade's dojo. Grayblade will teach you the Roll Attack and give you TIGER SCROLL #6. In his dojo you'll also find 100 Rupees and PIECE OF HEART #11. - Make Fusions, as many as you can. It is especially important that you make Fusion 004 of my list to create the teleport to the house in the clouds. There you'll find a man haunted by a ghost. Use the Gust Jar to suck away the ghost. This will pay off later, when you reach the Cloud Tops area. For the time being, you can speak with the man in the bed to receive 100 Mysterious Shells (after you've freed him from the ghost, of course). - Go to Eastern Hill, north of the bridge that leads to Minish Woods. You'll see a hole in the ground. Use the Cane of Pacci and jump up to the ledge. Go right and you'll find a fairy fountain inside a tree. Get close to the fountain and a big fairy will appear. Accept to give her all your Rupees, and she'll reward you with a BIG WALLET. When you're done, you may go on with your adventure. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:07 The Pegasus Boots ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Remember where you bought the Bottle in Trilby Highlands? Return to that cave and you'll see some glowing tiles. Split in two (vertically) and push aside the big block. This way you can exit the cave on the other side. Outside, blast the wall to find a cave that hides a red Kinstone Piece. Now go south and to the next screen to access Western Wood. After a cutscene, go south and west, then north along the path to reach the entrance to Castor Wilds. The problem is, you can't walk into the quicksand long enough to get to the other side. You need something to run. So, return to Hyrule Town. To return faster, in the screen before you enter Western Wood, go north and push the boulder into the hole. You should also do the same in the first screen of Western Wood to create a shortcut to South Hyrule Field. In Hyrule Town, go to Rem's Shoe Shop. As soon as you get close, Rem will fall asleep. Use the nearby portal to get Minish and climb the small ladder to Rem's desktop. Talk to the three Minish there and they'll mark the location of Syrup's hut on your map. You next stop is Lon Lon Ranch. First things first: at the north-west corner of the area there's a hole in the ground at the base of a wall. Use the Cane of Pacci in that hole, and pay a visit to Veil Falls to collect PIECE OF HEART #12. Now go back to the Ranch area, and go to the Ranch itself. You'll see Talon frantically searching for the key to his house. Maybe you can help him? There's a tree stump on the back of the house. Use it to shrink and enter the house through the Minish passage. Inside, turn back to normal size and break the pots to find the LON LON RANCH KEY. Take it to Talon and you can get to the other side of the Ranch. From now on, you can also buy Lon Lon Milk from Malon in Hyrule Town. Once outside, go east, then at the signpost, turn north. Follow the path until you see a hole at the base of a wall, and use the Cane to power up the hole and jump to the top of the wall. There, use the portal to shrink to Minish size. Cross the narrow bridge to a cave where a red Kinstone Piece awaits in a chest, then turn back to normal size and jump into the vortex. Float down to the next ledge, and from there jump into the next vortex and float down past the pond. Enter the Lake Hylia area and go down to Minish Woods. Follow the path to Syrup's hut. There, but the WAKE-UP MUSHROOM for 60 Rupees. Now you have to deliver the Mushroom to Rem, but on the way back, remember to collect PIECE OF HEART #15 in this very area. To go back, just take the lower of the two exits to Lon Lon Ranch, and push the boulder into the hole to create a shortcut. Back in Hyrule Town, go to Rem's Shop and use the Wake-Up Mushroom on Rem himself (press A in front of him). He will give you the PEGASUS BOOTS. With these, you can cross the quicksand in Castor Wilds, so go there. But before you do, visit Swiftblade's dojo again. Swiftblade will teach you the Dash Attack, and he'll also give you TIGER SCROLL #3. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:08 Castor Wilds ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now you can finally explore Castor Wilds. Use the Pegasus Boots to run to the opposite side of the pool of quicksand. There, go left and up, and enter the cave you see. Explore the cave until you get to a room with a chest in the middle. As soon as you approach the chest, it will disappear, and a Dark Nut will appear. You have two ways to fight the Dark Nut – with or without the Pegasus Boots. If you're using the Boots, run towards the Dark Nut – you'll go right through him and get behind his back. Quickly turn around and hit him in the back. If you're not using the Boots, just swing your sword and try to hit the Dark Nut on his unprotected side. Four hits will destroy him, and the chest will reappear. Open it to find a gold Kinstone Piece. Now leave the cave, and climb the nearby vine. On the ledge, take the upper bridge, and on the next ledge, climb down the vine. Go left and run above the quicksand to get to a tree stump. Use it to get to Minish size and enter the Minish road nearby. Use the Gust Jar to maneuver the water-lily to the other shore, and exit the road. Then, fall down the hole in the ground and kill all the enemies to receive the BOW. Return to the stump and get back to normal size. Now, cross the quicksand again towards the right, and climb the vine again. This time, take the bridge leading to the right. Climb down the vine and use your bow to defeat the Eyegore Statue. After that, follow the path to a cave where another gold Kinstone Piece awaits. Now climb up a vine, and use the bridges to go from one ledge to the other until you get to another Eyegore Statue. Kill it and continue on to find a chest with a green Kinstone Piece, then jump down on the left. Continue down, and to the left you'll see a tombstone. Cut down the bushes and push the tombstone to find Swiftblade the First's dojo. You can't learn much here now, but you can at least collect PIECE OF HEART #18. Now get out, then cross the quicksand on the right. You'll arrive near another Eyegore Statue. Defeat it, check the nearby obelisk, then climb the vine. Cross the bridge and jump into the vortex. Float down and to the left, and you'll land near a cave that hides a third gold Kinstone Piece. Exit the cave, push the boulder into the hole to create a shortcut, and run above the quicksand toward the left. There are three big statues here. Fuse a gold Kinstone Piece with each of them, and the big boulder will crumble, opening the way to the Wind Ruins. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:09 Wind Ruins ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bomb the fragile wall to open up a cave that hides a blue Kinstone Piece. Next you'll see an Armos blocking the way – touch it and it will move, and you'll be able to defeat it. Proceed until you see a tree stump, and use it to get to Minish size. You may fall down the hole to find a Minish house and a red Kinstone Piece. Then, go to the Armos and enter it as you'd do with a Minish road. Inside the Armos, flip the switch with your sword. Get out, back to normal size, and kill the now-active Armos. A little further down the road, you'll come to a ladder blocked by a solid stone statue. To remove it, just defeat the three Tektites that are jumping around. Continue on and you'll get to a tree stump. Become a Minish and retrace your steps. In the previous screen, jump down the ledge and use the vine on the left to climb down to the screen below. There, climb down the middle vine to get to a cave. Explore it for PIECE OF HEART #19. Back to the tree stump, walk down as a Minish, avoiding the Ropes on the way, and activate the Armos as you did with the previous one. Then, go back to the stump and get big again, then proceed along the road. The next screen is a bit tricky. First, defeat the three Armos on the right to get access to two chests containing 100 Rupees and 50 Mysterious Shells. Then, focus your attention on the Armos on the far left. When you get close to him, he rushes down to block your path. To get past him, use the portal to become a Minish and enter the Armos – but this time, you'll have to actually deactivate it. When you're done, get back to normal size and continue on. Now all you have to do is defeat all the enemies you'll find along the way to open up the way to the Fortress of Winds. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:10 Fortress of Winds ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- | 3F | ---- _________ | | | | ______ |____ ____| ______ | 4 | | 6 | | 2 | |__ __|_______|__BK_|_______|_ _K_| | 3 1 | 5 | 2 | |__ __|_______|__ __|_______|_ _ _| 0 ---- | 2F | ---- _____________________________ | 7 6 9 10 | |__ __|_____| |_____| | | 8 | | 5 | | | |__ __|_____| |_____|_K___| | 2 | | 12 11 | |_____ |_K_K_| | |__3__|_ ___ _______ ___| | | | | | 1 | 4 | 3 | |_____|__ __|__ __| 0 ---- | 1F | ---- _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ | | | | | | | | | | | 1 | | 2 | | 3 | | 4 | | 5 | |__ __| |__ __| |__ __| |__ __| |__ __| 0 EN 1F-0 The entrance to the Fortress is in this unmapped corridor. Take the right path and enter the first door you see to 1F-4. There, climb up the stairs to the upper floor. 2F-3 Pull the lever on the right to make a chest appear. It contains a blue Kinstone Piece. You'll find another blue Piece in the chest on the left. Pull the lever on the left wall to open the door. 2F-0 Climb up the ladder to 3F-0, and enter the door you'll find. 3F-2 This is an interesting room. Go left and destroy the skulls and the active Armos. This will reveal some glowing tiles. Now charge up your sword and split in two. The following diagram shows on which tiles you should step: _ _ _ _ |x| |_|_|x| Once you've split, go back to the right and step on the switches to open the door. Use the portal to become a Minish and go back to the left again. Activate the Armos, then se the nearby portal to get big again, and defeat the Armos. Now pull the lever on the wall, and a SMALL KEY will fall down the hole in the floor. You can fall down the hole yourself to go back down to 1F, but you should do it as a Minish. This way, you'll be able to enter the Minish passage in 1F-4 and get to 1F-5 to retrieve PIECE OF HEART #20. Once you have it, push the second block from the left to get out, go get the Small Key, and go to 1F-2. There, climb the stairs to the second floor. 2F-1 Proceed to 2F-2. 2F-2 Use your bow to throw an arrow in the eye hanging from the western wall. This will open the door to the next room. 2F-3 Kill the four Stalfos to open the door. Proceed to 2F-0 and to the ladder going up to 3F-0. On the way there, watch out for the Rupee Likes that hide among the true Rupees. 3F-3 Use the first moving platform to get onto the second one. Now face up and get your bow ready. When you're in line with the eye on the left, shoot an arrow, then let the platform take you to the right and shoot the second eye as well. The door on the northern wall will open up. 3F-4 Use the glowing tiles to split in two and press the two switches. The Eyegore Statues will wake up. Defeat them and you'll get the COMPASS. Now go back to 3F-3, step on the third moving platform, and shoot the two eyes on the eastern wall to open up the door leading to the right. 3F-1 Kill the Ropes, then destroy the four skulls by the lower wall to uncover four glowing tiles. Split in two vertically, and push the upper block against the eastern wall. Then, turn around and push the lower block to the left. Cancel your clone and create another, this time horizontally. Once split, go to the upper block and push it all the way up. Cancel the clone and pull the lever: a SMALL KEY will fall down to the first floor. Fall down the hole and go get the key in 1F-2. Now that you have two keys, go to 1F-3 and climb up the stairs. 2F-4 Take either of the two paths going north, and climb up the stairs to the big chest to get the DUNGEON MAP. Then, walk up and unlock the door on the left. 2F-5 Wait for the moving platform to come down, and step on it. As it goes up, move sideward to avoid getting knocked down by the blocks. 2F-6 Throw arrows into the two eyes to extend the bridge, but pay attention to the shadow of the Wall Master on the floor. If the hand catches you, you'll be thrown back to the entrance. 2F-7 Kill the Dark Nut to create a blue teleport. 2F-8 Four Traps move along the walls. Roll and use the Pegasus Boots to be faster than them, and go press the switch on the right. This will open the door. Follow the ledge until you get to 2F-2. 2F-2 See those three decorated tiles on the floor? Place a bomb there, and the wall will blow up, revealing a passage to a secret room. In that room you'll find a big chest containing the MOLE MITTS. Use them immediately to get to the chest with 100 Rupees inside, then get out and continue west. You'll be back to 2F-4. This time around, unlock and enter the door on the right. 2F-5 Have the Pegasus Boots ready, then pull the lever all the way back. A bridge will appear, but it will soon retract. Use the Boots to dash to the other side. 2F-9 Kill the three Floor Masters to make a portal appears, but don't use it yet. Just proceed to the next room. 2F-10 Go down. At the bottom of the room, watch out for the spiky logs. Use the holes in the floor to avoid them. When you can, go up the path on the right. You'll see four switches. They must all be pressed at the same time to open the southern door. There are two statues here, and six glowing tiles further to the north. Here's how you must proceed: _ _ |x| |_| Move the two statues until they're on the marked switches. _ _ |_| |x| Now go to the glowing tiles, and split on them like this: _ |x| <- Step here first to create your clone here. _ |_| |_| |_| |_| |x| When you've split, walk down to the switches. Move carefully, for if your clone hits a wall, it'll disappear. When the two of you press the two switches, a SMALL KEY will fall from above. Use it to unlock the southern door. Now go back to the previous room and use the portal, then come here, get through the Minish passage, and walk down. Avoid the spiky logs and go to the room below, then to 2F-12. 2F-12 Walk through the Minish passage in the wall. On the other side, use the portal to get big again, and press the switch. A SMALL KEY will fall from above. Use the Mole Mitts to retrieve it, then use the portal again and walk back down. There, fall down the edge and use the portal you'll find. Go right to 2F-11, and out to 2F-0. Use the Mole Mitts to reach the ladder and climb it. Proceed to 3F-2. 3F-2 Kill all the enemies and unlock the door. Go up and fall down the hole on the right. 2F-11 Open the big chest to obtain the BIG KEY. Move away the block, fall down the edge, and return to 2F-4. There, walk through the southern door to get to 2F-0. 2F-0 Use the Mole Mitts to dig the dirt wall, and push the stone statue on the switch. A chest containing a blue Kinstone Piece will appear. Now climb the ladder to 3F-0, and dig to the door. 3F-5 Push aside the upper-right block to create a red teleport. Now that both teleports are available, I suggest that you go digging everywhere in the dungeon to find a lot of Rupees and Kinstone Pieces. When you're done, come back here and open the big gate. 3F-6 Break the pots to find Hearts and Arrows. When you're ready, walk up through the northern door. 3F-7 BOSS: Mazaal The two hands of the Boss will attack you alternatively. They can float in the air and smash down the floor where you're standing, so keep moving to avoid being squashed. They can also grab you and squeeze you, causing a considerable loss of energy. To defeat the boss, first you have to take down its hands. You can only do this using arrows. Shoot the hands' palms three times each to put them off for a while. When they're both down, use the portal and enter the boss' head as a Minish. Inside the head you'll find some pillars. One of them has some eyes at its base – hit the base until the pillar collapses, then get out. Once outside, get big quickly for the hands will start attacking again. Repeat the previous pattern, but the next time you enter Mazaal's head, there will be dirt walls covering the pillars. You'll have to dig through the dirt with the Mole Mitts and find the weak pillar. Then, just attack it with your sword. You'll have to repeat this procedure once again, but on the thirs time, Mazaal's head can attack you as well, spitting out an energy beam. When you destroy the third pillar, Mazaal is gone for good. After Mazaal is defeated, you'll receive a HEART CONTAINER. Walk up the steps and go check the inscription to receive the OCARINA OF WIND. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:11 Books and Bracelets ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Your next goal is the dungeon in Lake Hylia. Use the Ocarina of Wind to teleport there (you can also teleport to anywhere you uncovered a Wind Crest). There's a tree stump near the Wind Crest by Lake Hylia. Use it to become a Minish, and enter the nearby Minish house. Speak with the Minish inside to know your next destination – the library in Hyrule Town. At the library, go downstairs and talk to the old man standing by the bookshelf. Then, get out through the southern door. Outside you'll find a vase – use the Cane of Pacci to flip it over, and use it to get to Minish size. Go back into the library and approach the shelf by which the man is standing – you'll enter a Minish zone. Speak with the two Minish there, then get back to normal size and go to the library's first floor. There, talk to the lady on the left and she will tell you who borrowed one of the missing books. What you need now is some water. Fill your Empty Bottle(s) at the town river, then go to Romio's house (it's the house to the right of Stockwell's Shop). In the house, sprinkle some water on the fire in the mantelpiece. Then, use the nearby portal to get to Minish size, and enter that mantelpiece. Now cross the narrow ledge to Julietta's house, where you'll see the missing book on a shelf. Climb up there and push the book down. Now all you have to do is get back to normal size, grab the book, and take it back to the library. Once you've taken the book back, speak with the lady again, and she'll tell you where you can find another book. It's been borrowed by Dr. Left, the man living in the south-west part of town, near the carpenters' house. Go to his house and he'll allow you to enter. Inside, speak with Dr. Left, then put out the fire in his mantelpiece with some more water. When you're done, go to the carpenters' house and use the portal there to shrink to Minish size. Now enter Dr. Left's house via the Minish passage, and once you're inside, go check the passage in the upper-right corner. There's a Minish living there – talk to him to receive a clue on what to do next. Back to Dr. Left's sitting room, enter the mantelpiece to get out. From there, go through the stranger's house, and get out near the bridge. Go around the right side of the stranger's house and cross the bridge you'll see. Then, you'll have to cross a small yard "guarded" by two ferocious cats. Avoid their slashes as best as you can, and climb down the vine at the opposite side. Walk on the edge of the fountain, and enter the Minish cave. In the cave, go right and use the Cane of Pacci in the hole in the ground. Jump up to the top of the wall, and in the next room, kill all the monsters to receive the POWER BRACELETS. Now you have what it takes to fully explore Dr. Left's house, so go back there. In the Doctor's house, move the two bookshelves as far to the left as you can, then climb the ladder and enter the Minish passage up there. Talk to the Minish there, and you'll see the book you're looking for. Problem is, it won't budge if there's only two people standing on it. So, go near the Minish who's reading abook, and you'll notice some dirt on the ground. Remove it with the Gust Jar, and you'll reveal some glowing tiles. Use them to split in two, then go to the book on the right and stand on it. Just as the clone is going to disappear, the book will fall down – and you will as well :) Now just get back to normal size, and return the book to the library. There's still one book missing, and this one will take you quite far from Hyrule Town. You're told that the book was borrowed by Mayor Hagen. Go to his house and speak with him twice. He will give you a clue about his masks. Wear the Pegasus Boots and run against the north wall. The masks will fall to the ground, revealing a Minish passage. Make sure that all the masks have fallen, then use the portal and go to that tiny passage. Inside you'll find two Minish. Talk to them and they'll make a mark on your map. That's your current destination. Now leave Hyrule Town, and head for the part of Minish Woods where Syrup's hut is. Near the hut you'll see a cave entrance obstructed by dirt. Use the Mole Mitts to dig into it, and once inside the cave, find your way to a ladder going up. Climb it, and you'll resurface in the Lake Hylia area. Move to the right and you'll see Hagen's cabin. Behind it is a tree – run into it with the Boots to uncover a portal. Use it and access the Minish road just behind the cabin. Use the Gust Jar to move the water-lily to the opposite side, and you'll be inside the cabin. Use the water-lily to cross the pond, and move the middle bookshelf to the right. Now climb the ladder and push the book down so that it falls to the floor of the cabin. Now go back to the tree stump, get big again, and go grab the book in the cabin. Return the book to the library. Now that all the books have been returned, you can visit the Town Minish's elder. Use the portal on the library's terrace to shrink and access the now- complete bookshelf. Climb the books and follow the path until you find the elder's house. Speak with the elder, and he'll "send" you to a cave ^_^ Move the bottom block of the column to the left, then move downward the block that was just below it. Now that you're free, go down to the next screen, and use the Gust Jar on the mushroom to cross the water. Go ahead until you get to a room where you'll be attacked by two Scissors Beetles. Defeat them and a chest will appear. Get the FLIPPERS that are inside it, and enter the water. Swim all the way down to get out of this cave. With the Flippers, you have almost all of Hyrule at your fingertips. There's very few places you can't reach, so you'd better do some heavy exploration to find all sorts of goodies. You can also perform a whole load of Fusions. So, if you like exploring, take your time and wander around a bit. Here's what you can do: - Collect PIECE OF HEART #24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, and 33. - If you have the money, visit Stockwell's Shop and buy a LARGE QUIVER for 600 Rupees (ouch). - Visit Waveblade's dojo at Lake Hylia. To find it, swim west from Hagen's cabin and you will see a ladder leading to an enclosed area where an open tree can be seen. Enter that tree to find Waveblade. If you have 10 or more Hearts, he will teach you the Peril Beam technique, and give you TIGER SCROLL #4. - Even though you could have done this earlier, you may collect an EMPTY BOTTLE. You must have visited the hut in the northern part of the Lake Hylia area, where the lonely dog lives. Talk to the dog as a Minish, then go to Hyrule Town and enter Mama's Café. Push the rightmost shelf to the left to reveal a Minish ladder. Use the portal to become a Minish, and exit through the passage up on the shelves. Go past the Minish area and you'll be on a narrow ledge high above the streets. Get to the other side, past the area with the monsters, and into the back of Stockwell's Shop. Use the portal to get big again, and check the bottle on the crate. Accept to feed Stockwell's dog and you will receive the bottle. Now go back to the hut by Lake Hylia and approach the dog's bowl. Press A and you'll put the dog food into the bowl. You can keep the Empty Bottle for yourself. When you're satisfied with what you've found, resume your quest by going to Lake Hylia. Dive into the lake and go west and up from Hagen's cabin to find the entrance to the Temple of Droplets. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:12 Temple of Droplets ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- | B1 | ---- ______________________ | 4 K 2 3 | |_____|____ ____|_____| | | | EN | _____| 1 |_____ | 16 | | 10 | _____|___ |____BK____|_ ___|_____ | | | 7 | | 11 | | | | 6 | 5 | ____| | | K 12 | 13 | | | | |____ | | | | |____ ____| 14 | | | 8 | 9 | | | | |_____| | 17 |___K_______| | _| | 15 | | | |__________|_____| ---- | B2 | ---- ____________________ | | | | 2 | 1 | |____________|_______| | | | 15 | _____|__ _ __ __|_____ | | | | | 17 16 | 14 | 9 | ___________| |____|_____|_ _ _|___________ | | | | | | | | | 18 | 8 13 K | | |_____|__ __| |_____|_____| | | 19 | 21 | 7 | 10 | 12 | | |_____|_____ |_____|_____| | | | | | | | | | 20 | | 6 | 11 | | |_____|_____| 3 |_________ |__ __|___________| | | | | | 4 | 5 | |_____|__________|_____| ---- | B3 | ---- _____ | | | 1 | |_____| B1-1 You enter the dungeon in this room. Go down the steps and go left or right. Move one of the icy blocks out of the way and make your way to B1-3. There, go downstairs. B2-1 Move the lever to the left to make sunlight shine through the ceiling. Go upstairs and fall through the hole in the floor. Back down here, Push the icy block down, then right and under the sunlight. It will melt away, revealing a SMALL KEY. Pick it up and go upstairs to use it in the locked door in B1-2. B1-4 Fall through the hole. B2-2 Go right to find three icy blocks. Here's how you have to move them: Upper block: move it once to the left. Lower block: move it down, then to the left. Middle block: move it left, then up, then left again. Now push it down, left, up, and right. The sunlight will melt the block, allowing you to retrieve the BIG KEY. It is very important that you move the block with the key only when the two other block are set in position. When you have the Big Key, push the leve3r up to close the panel upstairs. Return to B1-1 and use the Big Key in the southern door. B1-5 The Element is here, but you can't get it right now. Go through the door on the left. B1-6 Go all the way down to find the DUNGEON MAP, then come back here. Swim into the water, diving when the spiky log is about to hit you. Swim to the next room. B1-7 Go up the steps, then swim right and down until you get to B1-9. B1-9 Use the Gust Jar on the mushroom to get to the other side, and press the switch to lower the gate. Now fall down the waterfall. B2-3 Swim down, avoiding the log, and at the end, go left to a small alcove. Read the stone tablet, then press the switch to lower the gate. Swim left to the next room. B2-4 See those stones forming the shape of a pot? If you've read the inscription in the previous room, you know what to do. Swim between them, and dive to find a SMALL KEY. Now go back to B2-3 and climb back up to the first floor. Go up to B1-6 and use the key in the locked door. On the other side of the door, go down. B1-8 Press the switch to lower the gate, then step on the water-lily and maneuver it all the way to the waterfall and down to the lower floor. Once there, maneuver the water-lily to the room with the stone "pot". B2-4 Use the water-lily to step on the platform with the switch. Press the switch, step back on the lily, and drive it to the right. B2-5 Kill the Madderpillar and the door will open. Go up and retrieve the COMPASS from the big chest, then step back on the lily and maneuver it to B2- 7. B2-7 Go up, press the switch, and take the lily all the way to the next gate. There, step down and you'll see some icy blocks. Your goal is to move one of them on the switch so that it stays pressed. Here's how to do it: 1 | 2 | S 3 | 4 5 6 Move 1 down. Move 4 left. Move 2 left. Move 4 up. Move 1 left. Move 3 left. Now that the gate is open, first go north from the icy blocks to find a chest with 50 Rupees inside. Then, hop on the water-lily and drive it up and right to the door. B2-8 It's pretty dark in here. Hug the left wall and go up to the next room. B2-9 Just take the stairs leading to the upper floor. B1-10 Kill the three Scissors Beetles to activate the blue teleport, and go down and left. B1-5 Whoa, that lever's huge. You can't move it all by yourself, but luckily, there's a couple of glowing tiles a little further to the south. Use them to split in two, and move the lever to the left. A new path will open up, so proceed to B1-13, collecting the blue Kinstone Piece in B1-11. B1-13 Walk very carefully here. Half down the room you'll find a chest containing a blue Kinstone Piece. As you progress down, you'll see a line of Traps moving in circles. Wait for an opening, then pass and go left to find your way out of this room. Proceed to B1-12 and go downstairs. B2-10 Go downstairs. B3-1 Pull the lever up, then go back upstairs. There, push the lever left, then return down here and push the lever back to the left to make sunshine get down to this room. Open the chest to find a SMALL KEY. Now return to B1- 14 and unlock the door. B1-15 Push the lever and... MINI-BOSS: Big Blue Chuchu This guy is just like the boss of Deepwood Shrine, and you must fight him the same way. The only difference is that this Chuchu can emit electricity from its body. When he does, he can't be vacuumed, so wait for him to stop sparkling. Also look out for when he jumps. When you win, you'll receive the FLAME LANTERN. Go back to the previous room. B1-14. Use the Lantern to melt down the ice blocks, and go downstairs. B2-6 Melt the block with the Lantern. The chest contains 100 Rupees. Go to the next room. B2-11 Kill the three Scissors Beetles. You can light the torches to see better, but they will extinguish pretty quickly. When you win, go to the next room. B2-12. This room is a small maze, and it's dark too, so keep your Lantern lit up. First, take the lower path among the two in front of you, and light the torch at the end. This will remove a block in the upper path, allowing you to proceed upwards. At the crossroads, take the path going down to get to a chest with a red Kinstone Piece, then go back to the crossroads and go right to light up the next lantern. At the next crossroads, take the passage going left and down. Follow it to the end and you'll find a fragile wall. Bomb it and enter the secret room behind it. Kill all the enemies to get a SMALL KEY, then go back to the previous room and take the path going up. Stay on the right to get to a chest containing a red Kinstone Piece, and you'll also find the next torch. Light it up and continue on. You'll find yet another red Kinstone Piece, and the final torch. Now all you have to do is to unlock the door. B2-13. Just cross this and the next two rooms, avoiding the enemies as best as you can, and walking carefully on the slippery floor. B2-14 Use the glowing tiles to split in two vertically, and move the upper block left twice. Then, split in two horizontally and push the lower block all the way down. Now use the second set of glowing tiles to split up horizontally, and push the nearest block down once. Finally, split up vertically and move the first block away from the door. B2-15 This room is very tricky. There are three switches at the far left, and two icy blocks. There are also four glowing tiles. All three switches must be pressed at the same time to open the next door. First, go to the left and push the icy block down, then left on the lower switch. Next, go to the first icy block and melt it down with the Lantern. Finally, use the tiles to split in two, like this: _ |x| |_| _ |x| |_| When you've split in two, CAREFULLY make your way to the left. Press the two remaining switches and the southern door will open. B2-16 Push the upper-right block upwards to open the door. B2-17 First, kill all the enemies. Then, use the Lantern to melt the ice block and uncover some glowing tiles. Use them to split in two vertically, and walk down to push the big block all the way to the right. Then just make your way to the next room. B2-18 Another tricky room. You just have to light up all the torches to open the door, but you must make it before the first one burns off. And the floor is very slippery here. When you're done, proceed to the next room. B2-19 Avoid the spiky logs by diving deep into the water, and walk down to the door. B2-20 Press the switch to activate the red teleport, then bomb the north wall to open up a secret passage. In the room above, you'll have to kill two Madderpillars. When you're done, a door will open on the right. Now just follow the path until you find some stairs going up. B1-16 Go down and right to return to B1-5. B1-5 Another big lever here. Split in two and push it to the left to melt away the ice from the Element. When you can move again, jump down the edge and proceed to the room below. B1-17 BOSS: Octorok This is one of the hardest battles in the game. In the first round, Octorok will spit out boulders that will split up into tiny shards when they hit a wall. You must deflect the boulders off with your sword and back at Octorok. When you've done this three times, Octorok will freeze in ice and the floor will be covered with ice. Now Octorok will try to suck you into his mouth, and if he does, it hurts. Now you have to burn the tip of Octorok's tail with your Lantern. To do this, circle around Octorok. As soon as his mouth is almost on you, revert your running direction. Octorok should pause for a moment to vacuum, and you should have just the time to reach the tip of his tail and burn it. If you succeed, rocks will start falling from above, so stay on the move to avoid them. This scheme has to be repeated for two more rounds, with the following variants: Second round: Octorok will chase you around. When he stops, he can either vacuum the air around, or spit out a boulder. Listen to the sounds he makes. If he does just one, he'll vacuum. If he does two, he'll spit a boulder. Third round: Octorok has two new attacks. When he moves his legs and makes a shrill sound, he'll ram into the wall he's pointing at. When he hits the wall, lots of rocks will fall down. At times, he'll spit out some black smoke that will put the room into darkness. While the darkness lasts, Octorok will charge may times, making loads of rocks fall down. Also, this time it's more difficult to tell if he's going to vacuum or to spit boulders. Deflect three more boulders back at him and he's done for. For beating Octorok, you'll receive the WATER ELEMENT and a HEART CONTAINER. Back to the dungeon entrance, step in the sunlight to get out. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:13 Hide-and-seek ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A scene will give you a clue on what to do next. First things first: go back to the Elemental Sanctuary in Hyrule Castle to infuse your sword with the poewer of the third Element. The problem is, two guards are preventing you from entering the Castle. So, you must find some other way to get inside. Go to the southern area of Hyrule Castle Garden, and walk to the left. You'll see a soldier walking up and down. When he's looking away, sneak behind him and hide behind the bushes. When he's coming back, go past him. There are four soldiers in this part of the garden, and you must get past all of them without being spotted. When you've gotten past all of them, you'll find a group of bushes near a fountain. Cut down the bushed to find a ladder going down. The ladder takes you to a passage leading to the dungeons of Hyrule Castle. From there you can access the Elemental Sanctuary. When you've infused the power of the third Element in your sword, you'll be able to split in three. Now that you have the Lantern, you can visit Grimblade's dojo in Hyrule Castle Garden (it's in the eastern area of the garden, under a group of bushes). Light the torches in his dojo, and Grimblade will teach you the Sword Beam technique and give you TIGER SCROLL #2. To continue on your quest, go to North Hyrule Field, and west from the castle entrance. There you will find a ladder. Climb it down and you'll see a big block and some glowing tiles. Split in three and you'll be able to move the block away. Get out of this cave and go north to enter the Royal Valley. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:14 Royal Valley ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This place is dark and spooky, so keep your Lantern on at all times. When you've walked down the first flight of steps, you'll see a part of the wall surrounded by two fences. Bomb the wall there to find a secret cave. Enter it and you'll find a fairy fountain. Get closer and the fairy will ask you to tell her of your travels. Accept and she'll make you the following questions: Q) The first Element you found was the Fire Element, was it not? A) No. Q) Your grandfather's name is Smee, isn't it? A) No. Q) Melari of Mount Crenel has seven apprentices, does he not? A) Yes. Q) The Blabber Nut gives one the ability to understand the Minish, does it not? A) No. Q) The robe of the current king of Hyrule, Daltus, is white, is it not? A) No. For answering all of the questions correctly, you will receive a LARGE QUIVER. Now get out and continue on your quest. Go down, then left and up, and you'll find the entrance to the Lost Woods. Here, you must follow a very precise path, or you won't be able to continue. The signposts you'll find in each screen will tell you where to go next, but you must remember all of your movements because you will not always be told directly where to go. If you get lost, here's the correct path: Up Left Left Up Right Up If you find the correct path, you'll end up in the graveyard area. In the graveyard area, go up and follow the path to Dampé's house. Enter the house and speak with Dampé to receive the GRAVEYARD KEY. But, as soon as you get outside, the key will be stolen from you. To get the key back, light the Lantern and walk to a tree. If you can see the key on top of the tree, use the Pegasus Boots to run against the tree and make the key fall down. Don't get too close to the tree walking or the crow will see you and take the key to another tree. When you have the key, go to the graveyard gate talk to Dampé to open it. In the graveyard, first go straight up from the gate and push the tombstone. Then, go left and up to a solitary tombstone, and push this one as well. Walk down the steps you'll find and you'll end up in a cave. Use the glowing tiles to split in three, and move away the big block to collect PIECE OF HEART #34. Back to the graveyard, go right from the gate and destroy the rocks to find three glowing tiles. Use them to split in three, and move first to the left, then up and to the right to the three switches. Press them to move the big tombstone to the north. That's the entrance to the Royal Crypt. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:15 Royal Crypt ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Kill the two Gibdos in the first room to get a SMALL KEY, then move up. In the next room, pull down the leftmost mushroom, then release to get to the other side of the gap. There, unlock the middle door (the other two are Door Mimics). Go left and you'll see three glowing tiles. Step on two of them, then wait for the moving platform to come near you, and step on the third tile. Now step on the moving platform, and let it take you to the other side of the gap. On the way up, move left and right so that the clones don't hit the walls and dissolve. On the other side, press the three switches to get a SMALL KEY. Return to the entrance of the room, and this time, go right. Here you'll have to split in three again, but there's a trap that moves along the blocks, and if it hits your clones, they'll disappear. Move to avoid this, and step on the three switches to the north to get another SMALL KEY. Use the two keys to open the locked blocks in the middle of the room, and continue on until you get to a room with four torches. Light them all up with the Lantern, and defeat the two Gibdos that will appear (watch out for the torches, they shoot). In the next room you will receive a gold KINSTONE PIECE, and leave the Crypt. Now that you have a gold Kinstone Piece, you must find where to fuse it. From the castle bridge in North Hyrule Field, go east and you'll see two cracked blocks. Bomb them to open the way to Veil Falls. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:16 Veil Falls ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Walk across the bridge and you'll find a huge portal. You can make a Fusion with it. Fuse the gold Kinstone and the portal will open. Enter it. Light your Lantern to see in the dark. Find the stairs and climb them up. On the upper floor, get out (you can bomb the north wall to find a path leading to 150 Mysterious Shells totally, but that's up to you to explore). Outside, climb the wall to the top, where you'll find a Wind Crest. Activate it, then proceed to the cave to the north. Here, bomb the wall if you want 50 Mysterious Shells, then either take the stairs going up, or go down on the left and climb up the ladder. Either way, you'll eventually end up in a room with a chest containing 100 Rupees. There, take the south-east exit. Outside, climb the wall on the right. Continue on until you see a big vortex, and enter it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:17 Cloud Tops ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Welcome to paradise! No, wait, you're still alive. And it seems you're stuck up here, like the two guys you can see standing there. But differently from them, you can actually do something about it. Go tight and you'll see a red vortex. Hop into it and you'll reach even greater heights. Use the Mole Mitts to dig into the dirt walls, and open the chest for a gold Kinstone Piece. Now fall into the right hole, and on the cloud below, walk up to find a red vortex. Use it. Dig into the wall until you see a hole, and fall down it. Below you'll find a mysterious cloud with a half Kinstone Piece. Fuse with it to complete one Kinstone, then use the vortex to go back up. Hop into the vortex to the south of the hole, and proceed to the left, using another vortex, until you get to a solid cloud. Land there and fall into the hole. Now kill the two Cloud Piranhas to get a gold Kinstone Piece and a red vortex to return to the upper level. Dig through the wall and go down to find another vortex. Hop into it and head straight left to land on a cloud. Dig through the dirt to find two chests containing a total of 100 Mysterious Shells, then dig through the wall just south to find a chest containing another gold Kinstone Piece. Hop into the vortex and head straight down. On the next cloud, fall into the hole. Below, kill the Lakitu (the Boomerang makes this very easy, but you can use arrows) and go north to fuse a Kinstone with a cloud. When you're done, return above. Use the next two vortexes to get to the lower-left cloud of Cloud Tops. You'll find a chest containing some Mysterious Shells. Then, fall into the nearby hole. Take the upper path and kill the Lakitu you'll find. Behind him you can fuse another gold Kinstone. After that, use the nearby red vortex to go above and find a gold Kinstone Piece, then come back down here and go down and right. Use the red vortex. Fall down the next hole. Below, kill the two Cloud Piranhas and you'll get yet another gold Kinstone Piece. Use the red vortex, open the chest for 50 Mysterious Shells, and hop into the vortex to reach the cloud that's a little south and to the right from here. Dig into the wall and you'll find a small hole. Fall down. Use the red vortex, and fall down the next hole you'll find. Fuse with the mysterious cloud, then go back up. Go north and use the vortex, and head left until you can. Land on the cloud there, dig through the wall, and hop into the next vortex. Go right and, after getting into the next vortex, take the path going down to find the first hole through which you got to this upper area. Fall down it and you'll return to the entrance to Cloud Tops. Fuse with the last mysterious cloud to create a large vortex. Step into it. What! A house up here on the clouds? Builders must have been miracle people... OK, that's none of our business right now ^_^ Activate the Wind Crest and enter the house. You'll find as well as five Kinstone Pieces here. Go up to the fourth floor, and go to the back room to talk to Siroc. He will allow you to enter the Palace of Winds. After you've received his permission, speak with the boy in front of the stairwell and he'll move out of the way. Climb the stairs to the roof and use the big vortex to access the Palace of Winds. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:18 Palace of Winds ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- | 5F | ---- _______ | | | 15 | ______| ______| | | | 14 | _________________|___ ___|_______________ | 6 | 1 | 12 | | 13 | ___________|__K__|__ __| _____________________________| | K | 11 | | | | | | ____| | | | | 2 | |_____ | 5 | 4 | 3 | | 10 | | | | | |_BK__| | 9 | | | | | 7 | 8 |_____| |_________________| |_____| ---- | 4F | ---- __________________ | |___________ | 4 | | | | 6 | | ____ _______|_K_________| | | | | | | 5 | K | | 3 | | | | |_________ ________| | | | | | 2 1 | |_______________| ---- | 3F | ---- _________ | | | 1 | | | | ____|____________ | | 9 8 6 | | 2 |_ ___|_____|_____|_____ | | 10 | 7 5 | | |_____|___________| | | | | | 3 K 4 | |______________| | |_____________| ---- | 2F | ---- ______________________________ | | | | 1 | 2 | | | | |_________________|____________| | 4 5 6 | | ___|_____|_____| | 3 8 7 | _____|_____|_____|__ __| | | K | | 10 9 | 11 | |_____|_____|___________| ---- | 1F | ---- _______________________________ | | | | | 5 | 4 | | | | | | |___________|_____________| 3 | | | | | 6 | | | | | |___________________|__ __| | | __ | 2 | |7 | |_________| |__| | |_____ |_1___EN| 1F-1 Here is the room where you enter the Palace. Follow the path to the next room. 1F-2 Hit the globe to extend the bridge. Cross the next bridge as well, then hit the globe you'll find to extend the third bridge. Cross it, and on the other side, push upwards the middle of the three blocks to be able to hit the globe with your sword. This will extend the next bridge. Cross it and go to the block on your left. Push it down, then use an arrow or the boomerang to hit the globe on the other side of the gap. Now break the four skulls and you'll find four glowing tiles. Use them to split in three, and cross the bridge toward the right. There, push the big block up to create a passage to the next room. 1F-3 Step on the moving platform and let it take you north. On the way there, move to avoid the enemies and the walls. 1F-4 Go up the steps and walk along the grid. Stay on the left, and go to the next room. 1F-5 Go down and hit the globe with a long-range weapon. Cross the bridge, avoid the rolling log, and hit the globe again. Now you'll have to hit that same globe while on the other side of the bridge. The easiest way is to place a bomb and cross the bridge before it explodes, but you can use the Magical Boomerang if you have it. When you're done, use the new bridge to go north. On the next platform, you'll have to fight 12 Wizzrobes – first 2, then 4, then 6 more. When you win, a big chest will appear. Inside you'll find the ROC'S CAPE. Equip it and use it to jump back to the right and to the first platform in the room. There, jump up on the clouds, and up to the upper floor. 2F-1 Jump to the right and to the next room. 2F-2 Push down the first block in front of you. Push the next two upwards, and push the upper one of the diagonal line to the right. Now use the lower line of glowing tiles to split in three, walk down, and put each one of your three characters between two switches. Swing your sword and you'll hit all four switches at once. This will make two Spiked Beetles appear. Defeat them and the door on the right will open. Now you have to get past some powerful fans. The wind they generate can easily blow you off the platform, so wait for them to turn off before you try to get past. At the top of the ledge, jump to the right and go downwards. At the bottom, you'll see a hole at the base of a wall, between two fans. Use the Cane of Pacci in the hole, and use the hole to get on top of the wall. Proceed to the next room. 2F-1 Meet the panels. When you're above one of them, jump to get below, and vice versa. Do this with the first two panels. At the third, wait for the moving platform to arrive below you before you jump. At the next panel, jump up and go north. Jump on the clouds to the upper floor. 3F-1 Use two of the glowing tiles vertically, then wait for the platform to arrive before you use the third tile. Step on the platform and let it take you right and down. At the end of the line, quickly dismount and go left to the big block. Push the block out of the way, and continue down. 3F-2 Push into the abyss one or more of the three rightmost blocks. Wait for the platforms to arrive, then step onto the right one. Now you'll have to jump from one platform to the other to avoid being pushed down by the walls that are in the way. Meanwhile, the crows will do their best to damage you, and even to make you fall. When the platform stops, jump to the ledge you can see further down, and from there, hop onto the grid and continue on. 3F-3 Use the panels to jump onto and off the moving platform when needed. 3F-4 Jump down through the panel and go up. Be careful of the spiky log and use the Cane of Pacci in the rightmost hole. Jump to the top of the wall and you'll find some glowing tiles. Use them as follows: _ _ _ |x|_|_| _ _|_| |x|_|x| and you'll hit all three of the switches. A portal will appear. Use it to become a Minish and go through the small passage below. On the other side of the wall, you'll have to move the pots so that you can enter the next Minish passage. Don't act mindlessly and you'll easily make this out – it's faster trying than explaining it in written form, actually ;) Back to the entrance of this room, go up and enter the Minish passage in the north wall. In the next room, go north and use the portal to get back to normal size, then go down. 3F-5 Use an arrow to hit the switch on the other side of the fence. A SMALL KEY will drop from the ceiling. Grab it and go through the now-open eastern door. Back to 3F-4, go to the spiky log and unlock the door on the left of it. Past the door, jump on the clouds to the upper floor. 4F-1 Go to the next room. 4F-2 Wait for the fans to stop blowing, then go to the very end of the bridge's first half and jump to the left. If necessary, maneuver in mid-air to get to the other side. Move away the blocks and continue on, jumping past the spikes. When you reach the blue carpet, wait for the fan to start blowing, and jump to the left. The fan will give you a boost to reach the other side. 4F-3 Ignore the enemies and just jump from platform to platform to the next room. 4F-4 Jump to the top cloud, and from there, leap to the right. Go up the steps and to the end of the ledge to find a blue Kinstone Piece, then go back and again jump to the top cloud and to the right. At the third group of clouds, jump up to the upper floor. 5F-1 Go to the room to the south. 5F-2 Here you'll find two Ball & Chain Soldiers. They're very strong, and they can pack a punch. Wait for them to swing their weapon, then get close and attack. For beating them, you'll get 100 Rupees and a SMALL KEY. Use the key to unlock the locked door. 5F-3 Just proceed to the left for now. 5F-4 Push a pot on one of the switch, then split in three to press the other three switches. The door will open. 5F-5 Press the switch to activate a fan. Use its boost to make a jump that will get you to the opposite side of the gap. Once there, you'll have to fight 2 Spear Moblins and 2 Ice Wizzrobes before you can proceed. Continue right to 5F-3. 5F-3 Again, activate the fan and use its boost to get to the other side. Push away the blocks to get the SMALL KEY from the chest and to reach the locked door. 5F-6 Open the big chest to find the BIG KEY. Use it in the southern door in 5F-2. 5F-7 Fall down from the edge of the platform. 1F-7 Kill the Dark Nut to create a blue teleport and a bridge going north. Cross the bridge. 1F-6 Go right and up the steps to find the chest with the COMPASS inside, then go to the left and climb the stairs to the upper floor. 2F-3 Go to 2F-5 and fall down the middle hole to the room below, where you'll find a chest with a SMALL KEY inside. Come back here and go to the room to the south. 2F-9 Use the Gust Jar to kill the Peahats, then break the skulls to uncover five glowing tiles. Use them as follows: _ _ _ _ _ |x|_|x|_|x| and walk down to the switches. Hit them all at once to open the door leading left. In the next room, retrieve the SMALL KEY from the chest, then come back to this room and unlock the north-east door. 2F-11 Jump into the nearest vortex, and use the next vortexes to reach the exit on the right. Watch out for the floating Bombarossas. 2F-7 Go to the room above and hit the two switches with a Spin Attack to unlock the door (just in case), then come back here and climb the stairs to the upper floor. 3F-5 Take the right path and go to 3F-8. 3F-8 Kill the Wizzrobes to find the chest containing the DUNGEON MAP. 3F-9 Kill the two Floor Masters and pull the lever to open the door. In 3F.10, climb the stairs up. 4F-5 Go left and up, push the blocks down into the pit, and jump to the door. Go up to get PIECE OF HEART #35, then come back here and fall into the hole. Retrace your steps up to this room, and go right to a pit. Prepare an arrow, then wait for the Bombarossa to pass near the cracked blocks. Now shoot and the Bombarossa will explode, destroying the blocks as well. Jump past the pit and go all the way right, then up. Light the two torches to create a red teleport, then go back down and unlock the door. Go upstairs. 5F-8 Bomb the fragile wall. In the next room, go up and bomb the wall there as well. In 5F-10, blow up the two cracked blocks and go through the door. 5F-11 Be extremely careful in this room. If you touch a Bombarossa, it will start a chain reaction that will activate the switch, closing the door. Carefully get past the Bombarossas until you reach the blocks, and move them away to get to the door. 5F-12 Open the chest to find a SMALL KEY. Go back to 5F-10 and stand on the cracked floor to fall to the room below. There, open the locked door. 4F-6 make your way through this small maze until you get to its lower-right corner. There you will see two decorated tiles on the floor. Push the two blocks on your right down into the gap, and jump to the next platform. Work your way up and to the clouds. Jump up them to the upper floor. 5F-12 Open the big gate. 5F-14 Break the pots if you need Hearts, then enter the big vortex. 5F-15 BOSS: Gyorg Pair The battle begins on the back of a male Gyorg. When it flies above a female, hop down on the female's back. Wait for her to open three of her eyes, then split in three so that you and your clones are in the same positions as the three open eyes. Now walk up to the eyes and hit them as much as you can, until they explode. Now the male will fly near you again – hop onto its back. When he opens an eye, hit the eye. If the male swings its tail in a circle, jump over it. Then, the male will take you to another female, and you'll have to repeat the same pattern. This time though, the male will stand close and shoot energy spheres at you. When the second female is gone, hop on the male's back again, but watch out for some green Gyorg babies that will attack you. Hit the male's eye and you'll be taken to a third female. This time, the male will fly around shooting a lot of spheres. This is the most annoying round, since there is a high chance that your clones will be destroyed as soon as they're created. After the third female is gone, attack the male's eyes as usual, and then you're taken to the fourth and final female. Only the green babies will attack you now, so it's a little easier to kill this female and end the battle. The end of the battle brings you the WIND ELEMENT and a HEART CONTAINER. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:19 The Four Sword ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now that you have all the Elements, you can finally restore the full power of the Picori Sword. To do this, you must of course return once more to the Elemental Sanctuary. So go to Hyrule Castle Garden and play hide-and-seek with the soldiers once more, and head for the pedestal in the Sanctuary. The power of the four Elements will turn your Noble Sword into the mighty FOUR SWORD. Reacting to the holy blade, a new passage opens. Go there and watch the scene that follows. After that, go back to the entrance of the Sanctuary and split in four to open the door. Them start heading back to the castle dungeons. You'll find three people turned to stone. Charge up a Spin Attack and release it to shoot a magical beam that will dispel Vaati's magic. Do this on all of the three people here, and you may proceed down. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WK:20 Dark Hyrule Castle ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---- | 3F | ---- ____ _____ ____ | 1 | | 6 | | 4 | |____| |__ __| |____| | | | 5 | | | |__ __| ____ ____ | 2 | | 3 | |____| |____| ---- | 2F | ---- _____________________________ | 16 | 22 | 2 1 | |__ __| 15 |__ __|__ __|__ __| | | 21 | 3 | |__ __|__ __|__ __| | 14 | 20 | 4 | |__ ___________ __| | | | | 23 | 13 | 19 | 5 23 | | | | |__ __|__ __|__ __ | 12 | 18 | 6 | |__ __|__ __|__ __| | 11 | | | _____|___ _| 17 | 7 |_____ | 9 | 10 | | | 8 | |__ __|__ __|__ __|________ __| 23 ---- | 1F | ---- _____ _________________ | 16 | | 11 | 12 13 | |_____| |__ ________|_____| | 10 | _____|_____|_____ | 7 8 9 | |__ __|_____|___ | | | | | | 4 | | 6 | | | | | | |_____| | | 3 2 5 | |________ ________| _____| |_____ | 14 | K | 15 | |_____| 1 |_____| | | |_______EN________| ---- | B1 | ---- ___________ | 11 | 12 | |___________| | 10 | _____|__ __|_____ | 5 | 6 | 9 | | ____________ __| | | | | | 4 | | 8 | | | | | | |__ __| | | 3 1 7 | |__K_____ _____ __| | | | | | 2 | | | |_________________| ---- | B2 | ---- __________________ | | | | 2 | 3 | | _________________| | 1 | |______| This is it – the final dungeon. The Castle has changed much, and it's full of dangers. The corridor you enter the dungeon in is room B1-1. From there, go west, then north to B1-4. B1-4 Move carefully to avoid the spinning fire blades, and make your way to B1-5. B1-5 Use a bomb to open a passage in the eastern wall. Go through the wall and you'll find a portal. Use it to become a Minish, then backtrack to B1-4 and fall down the huge hole in the middle of the room. B2-1 Go to the next room and through the Minish passage to get to B2-3. B2-3 Use the portal to get big again, and press the switch to open the doors of the cells. Go to the next cell and use the Four Sword to free King Daltus from stone. Speak with him, and he'll give you a SMALL KEY. Now go to B2-2 and walk up the stairs. On the upper floor, go down to B1-4. B1-4 Go straight down from the entrance and use the glowing tiles to split in four. Push down the block and go to the next room. There, go to the end of the ledge and open the locked door. B1-2 Walk along the path and to its very end, where you'll find a big chest that contains the DUNGEON MAP. Now backtrack a little and walk up the stairwell to 1F. 1F-1 This is the castle entrance, and it's now free of guards. You may leave the castle at any time, so if you want to explore Hyrule, you are completely free to do so. From the entrance of the castle, go straight up and to the next corridor, then west and to 1F-4. 1F-4 After Ezlo gives you a clue, use the four glowing tiles to split in four. Wait for the statues to shoot before you step on the last tile, then, when you have split, swing your sword like a madman to deflect the projectiles back at the four statues at the same time. If the statues are hit at the same time, they will disappear, and the way north will be cleared. Proceed to 1F- 8. 1F-8 This room is a bit tricky. To open the next door, you must step on the blue tiles in the correct order, so that you step on all of them and only once on each one of them. If you do a mistake, step on the switch to reset the puzzle. Here's the solution: 16 17 20 21 15 18 19 22 23 14 13 12 11 4 5 10 3 6 9 1 2 7 8 Continue on to 1F-6. 1F-6 There are four switches to be pressed to the south, but on the way there it's full of walls and there's a moving Trap. Step on three of the four glowing tiles, then wait for the trap to reach the top of the group of blocks before you split in four. Then, guide your clones down, moving sideways to avoid the walls. Be quick though, because you don't have much time, and the Trap will soon start moving back upwards. When you press the four switches, a chest will appear. Grab the SMALL KEY inside and use it in the locked door in 1F-1. Go downstairs. B1-2 Follow the path to B1-8. B1-8 Kill the Stalfos, then you'll have to hit four statues at the same time again. Use the glowing tiles to split in two like this: _ _ _ _ |x|_|_|_| |_| |x| |x|_ _|_| |_|_|_|x| Once you've split, charge the Spin Attack and wait for the statues to shoot. Then, position your four characters in line to the statues, and when the statues shoot, release the Spin Attack. If everything went well, you will destroy the statues and open the way north. B1-9 Kill the enemies to have an easier life, but all you have to do in this room is to use a bomb on the western wall to create a passage to B1-6. From there, go up to B1-10 and climb the steps to the upper floor. 1F-10 Go to the next room. 1F-11 A Red Dark Nut is waiting for you. Kill him, then go to 1F-11 and get the COMPASS from the big chest. Then, come back here and move the throne sideward to reveal a descending staircase. Go down. B1-11 Just make your way to the next stairwell, and once on 1F, go right and up the stairs to 2F. 2F-1 Go down and exit to 2F-23. 2F-23 Use the vortexes to float all the way down to the next door. Watch out for the projectiles from the statues, and don't waste time landing on the ledges and killing the statues. 2F-5 Wait for the flame blade to reach its highest point, then split in four and quickly go past the blade. Hide for a moment on the left of the big block so that the flame doesn't hit you, then quickly push down the block to reach the next exit. 2F-23 Again, use the vortexes to float down and reach the lower bastion of the castle. There, just follow the path until you see a short bridge. Shoot the switch on the other side to extend the bridge, and enter the door you'll find soon thereafter. 2F-17 There are four switches that must all be hit at the same time. Here's how you should use the glowing tiles: _ _ _ _ _ |_|x|_|x|_| |_| |_| |_|_ _ _|_| |x|_|_|_|x| Go up and hit the four switches to open the door to the north. 2F-18 Kill the two Ball & Chain Soldiers to open the doors and to create a red teleport. Take the left exit and proceed to 2F-13. 2F-13 Lay a Bomb, pick it up, and wait for it to flash, then throw it against the cracked blocks to destroy them. You may have some trouble if you have the Remote Bombs: if this is the case, try stepping on the moving platform, and when you're in front of the blocks, tap the bomb button quickly to get the job done (but it hurts). Alternatively, try using the Bob-ombs. When you've broken the blocks, use the moving platform to reach one of the two rotating panels and jump upon the grid. From up there, use a long-range weapon to hit the two switches and open the door below. Go through the door and continue on. In 2F-20, take the northern exit. 2F-21 There is a powerful Black Knight in this room. Kill him to create a blue teleport. Also, six more Dark Nuts will appear in room 2F-4, 2F-6, 2F-12 and 2F-14. Your goal now is to kill all those Dark Nuts. Begin with the one in 2F-14. When you defeat him, go to 2F-15. 2F-15 Kill ALL the monsters in the room, including the two Wall Masters, before you do anything else. When you've defeated everyone, prepare your bow and go to the north wall. There are four eyes there, and you must hit all of them before the first one opens up again. But you must also pay attention to the flame blades – if they hit you, you'll almost certainly fall and have to do everything again. Hitting the four eyes will open the door. 2F-16 Move away the blocks and fall into the hole. Below, just climb the stairs to come back here. Press the switch to open the door, then take the stairwell going up. In 3F-1, retrieve the SMALL KEY from the chest. Now go to 2F-12 and defeat the two Dark Nuts there to open the door to 2F-11. 2F-11 Here you'll find another nice tile-pressing puzzle. Here's the solution: 1 2 13 14 15 29 30 3 12 11 16 27 28 31 4 10 17 26 25 5 8 9 18 24 23 6 7 19 20 21 22 Completing the puzzle will open the door. 2F-10 Kill all the Ghinis to open the door. If you can kill their "leader", they will all disappear at once. Now exit to 2F-23 and reach 2F-9. Climb the stairs to 3F-2 and get the SMALL KEY from the chest. Go to 2F-6 and kill the Red Dark Nut. Proceed down to 2F-7. 2F-7 This is a troublesome room. There are four switches at the bottom of the room that must be hit at the same time, and they're displaced like the arms of a cross. Not only that, but two flame blades are placidly rotating in the space between the glowing tiles and the switches. First, use any of the two groups of glowing tiles to split in four, like this: _ _ _ |_|x|_| |x|_|x| |_|x|_| The last tile you step on should be the bottom one. In fact, if there's a clone there, it may disappear if it hits a switch. So, wait for the blade on the right to reach the 11 o'clock position, then split and quickly walk down. When you reach the switches, position your four characters between them and repeatedly swing your sword. Alternatively, you can just walk down to the switches as a solo Link, charge up your sword, walk between the switches, and release power to hit them all at once. This may still be tricky because at times, contact with a switch may cause you to lose the charge, but it's definitely easier then splitting in four. Whatever method you use, when you've hit all four switches at once, the door will open. 2F-8 Just press the switch to disclose a stairwell going up. Go up to 3F-3 and get the SMALL KEY, then come back down and head for 2F-4. There, kill the two Dark Nuts and proceed to the north. 2F-3 Use the Lantern to light up all the torches. Be quick or the flame blade will get you. When they're all lit up, the door will open. 2F-2 Kill all the Ghinis to open the door. 2F-1 Go upstairs and take the SMALL KEY from the chest. Now come back down and go to room 2F-22. 2F-22 Use the four keys to open the locked blocks, then break the pots on the right to find four glowing tiles. Use them to split in four and move away the big block. Open the big chest to find the BIG KEY. Now go to 2F-18. 2F-18 Open the big gate. There is no turning back now, so you'd better be prepared for the final struggle. I suggest that you put a potion or a fairy in each bottle that you have, because you may lose a lot of Hearts even before the final battle begins. When you're ready, go through the big gate. 2F-19 After the dialogue, go up. Ignore the Ball & Chain Soldier as best as you can, and go upstairs. 3F-5 Split in four and go up, killing the enemies with the aid of your clones. Press the four switches to open the door. 3F-6 This is tough. Two Red Dark Nuts and a Black Knight will attack you at the same time. Defeat them with as little damage as you can, and climb the steps to the terrace. BOSS: Vaati Reborn Two small eyes rotate around Vaati. They are your current target, so attack them – two hits from the Four Sword will do one of them in. In the meanwhile though, Vaati will shoot out many fireballs that will set you on fire if they hit you. Wait for this attack to occur before you attack the eyes. If you take too long to destroy the eyes, Vaati will retire them for a while and shoot a black ball of energy that will chase you around. Don't hurry and just walk around, staying some steps ahead of it, until it disappears. Then, Vaati will draw out the rotating eyes again. When you've destroyed the two eyes, a giant eye will appear on Vaati's chest. Hit it with your sword and get ready for round two. Now Vaati will produce four eyes. Before they start rotating, they will each shoot a crimson beam straight downward. Use this moment to take down at least on of them, then they will start rotating. Vaati will also use the black energy ball and the fireballs, so beware. When the four eyes have been destroyed, Vaati will be vulnerable again, but he will teleport away if you can't hit him in time. On the third round, Vaati's rotating eyes will be protected with a black energy sphere. Use the Gust Jar to remove the protection, then attack as usual. Watch out though, as Vaati can now teleport around the room, and he tends to appear right upon you to hurt you some more. There is also a fourth round, that plays just as the third described above. After that, a new battle will begin. BOSS: Vaati Transfigured Vaati is now a giant eye in a black cloud, surrounded by eight smaller eyes. Four of these eyes are vulnerable. Use the bow to shoot the eyes: the vulnerable ones will stay open. When you've opened all four, you must split in four according to the position of the four eyes, and attack all four eyes at the same time. If you succeed, all the small eyes will disappear and Vaati's body will be vulnerable – hit him as much as you can. However, Vaati will not wait for you to attack. He will move around and he'll occasionally stop and shoot out some spiky balls, or stomp the ground and make a lot of rocks fall down from above. He may also stop and shoot some electricity spheres, that hurt a lot. If you run out of arrows, break the spiky balls with your sword to find some. This battle will last four rounds. After your fourth attack, Vaati will be defeated. Walk to the end of the balcony and use the Spin Attack Beam to release Zelda from the stone. After a scene, you'll be back in room 1F-1. Walk down the stairs to B1 and follow the path to the entrance of the courtyard leading to the Elemental Sanctuary. Before you enter the courtyard, go to the room below to stock up on hearts, bombs and arrows. Then, enter the courtyard and be prepared for the true final battle! FINAL BOSS: Vaati's Wrath Vaati's main and most dangerous attack is now the electricity ball. It's fast, it stops you in place for several moments, and it hurts aplenty. After a while Vaati will raise an arm. The arm will disappear underground for a moment, then it will resurface and move upwards. This is your chance: shoot the arm with the Cane of Pacci and it will freeze where it is. Now quickly use the portal to get to Minish size, and enter the arm. Inside, you will see a lot of moving eyes. Only one of them is vulnerable – it's the one that can move its pupil around. When you've spotted it, hit it with your sword until it's done for. Then, leave the arm and get back to normal size. Repeat the above pattern with the other arm as well. However, when you enter the second arm, it will be dark inside, so use the lantern to find the vulnerable eye, and destroy it. When his two arms are gone, Vaati will open his four smaller eyes. He can now shoot a lot of electricity balls at once, so be extremely careful. He can also retract the four eyes and shoot a dark matter ball (this can be absorbed with the Gust Jar). From time to time, he will stop and his four smaller eyes will charge up a projectile. The trick here is to deflect all four projectiles back at the same time. So, after Vaati has shot the electricity balls, split in four and wait for the eyes to prepare their projectiles. Put your four characters exactly in front of the eyes (keep some distance to have time to react) and when they shoot, swing your sword. If you hit all the eyes at the same time, Vaati's main body will be stunned for a while. Get close and hit him as much as you can. Repeat this pattern until Vaati is definitely defeated. Congratulations! You have defeated the evil Vaati and conquered the game! Sit back and enjoy the beautiful ending sequence. ============================================================================== 03.

There's a Minish road in the courtyard of the school. When you can split in four, go to the end of that road and split in four to move the big block and reach the Piece. 43. Found at Veil Falls. You must have performed Fusion 099 to get this Piece. Near the great portal of Veil Falls there's a cave in the lake. Go to that cave and dig into it to find the Piece. 44. Found in Hyrule Town. Collect all the figurines available at Carlov's slot-machine and show the Carlov Medal at the man sitting at the table outside Mama's Cafe. He'll give you access to the house just above the cafe. Inside you'll find the Piece. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:02 Fusions ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Fusions are the core of the game. After the first dungeon, when you go back to Hyrule Town, you'll meet the Hurdy-Gurdy Man, who'll give you a Kinstone Bag. Since then, you'll find many Kinstone Pieces scattered around Hyrule. Green Pieces can usually be found when you cut down grass, bushes and rocks, but some enemies (especially Moblins) will occasionally drop some. On the other hand, blue and red Pieces can only be found in chests that you'll stumble upon in caves, houses and dungeons, or in some special occasions. There's a bunch of gold Kinstones to be found too, but they're only required for very special Fusions that are strictly required to advance in the game. There are three different types of green and red Kinstone Pieces, while blue Kinstone Pieces come only in two different shapes. Below you can see some ASCII reproductions of the different Kinstone shapes. _ _ BLUE: | | | | |1| |2|__ | \ | | |___\ |____| _ ____ _ RED: | \ | __| | \ |1 \ |2|__ |3/ | / | __| | \ |_/ | |__ |_/ |____| ___ ___ ___ GREEN: | | | _| | | |1 / |2|_ |3 / | \ |___| | | |___| |_| To make a Fusion with someone (or someTHING), get close to that person/thing. If a small balloon with a symbol inside appears over his/her/its head, then it is possible to fuse. Press the L button and you'll see which type of Kinstone Piece is required for the Fusion. The symbol in the balloon is somewhat representative of the reward you'll get, but that's not always the case: for example, the Rupee symbol may represent a chest containing Mysterious Shells instead of Rupees. Blue and red Kinstone Pieces are only required for special Fusions, usually performed with the same people in every game you'll start. These Fusions are usually quite easy to find. Green Pieces, on the other hand, are a true headache. Not only they're pretty scarce, but finding someone to fuse them with can be hell at times. You see, green Fusions are not set, but they move around when you fuse with someone or when you quit playing. This means that if you find someone willing to fuse a green Kinstone, he or she may not be willing to do so anymore if you return after fusing with someone else or when you resume playing after quitting the game. However, it is not possible to lose the chance to get those Fusions, because what was bound to be triggered after a Fusion with someone, can still be triggered by fusing with someone else. The problem is, you don't know WHO... It is not unusual to find someone willing to make more than one Fusion, even immediately after the first one. So, it is wise that you exit the house/cave you made the Fusion in and immediately re-enter so that you can check the same person again – you may be lucky and be able to fuse again. However, most of the people you'll meet will only make one Fusion throughout all the adventure – if any. But you may never really know who won't be willing to fuse at all, so take note of every place where you can find people in the land of Hyrule. This will pay off when you're left with only a bunch of Fusions to do and no idea about who to do them with. One more thing to remember is that the number and type of Fusions you can make is determined by some checkpoints. A typical checkpoint is the restoration of a part of the Four Sword in the Sanctuary in Hyrule Castle, but it can be the completion of a dungeon, etc. So, if you can't find any more Fusions to do, it's best to advance in the main quest. When you've done something important, new Fusions will pop out. I have listed those checkpoints as well. You can make a grand total of 100 Fusions in the game. When you've done them all, go see Tingle on South Hyrule Field to receive the Tingle Trophy. There is probably no use for the Trophy, but the Fusions themselves are already a good reward since they're your only chance to get access to many areas and items you couldn't reach in any other way. Before you read the list, I have a final word of advice. The first 22 Fusions are very mobile, so those I have listed here may not work for you. However, if you complete those 22 Fusions before the first checkpoint, the remaining 78 Fusions will be EXACTLY where I wrote in the list. There is no mistake – I have done this twice and it worked perfectly, something that couldn't happen if those Fusions were mobile as the first 22. Also, Fusions 023-100 should still be valid even if you didn't get the first 22 before the first checkpoint. However, if that is the case, you should check the list and see what you've obtained with the Fusions you've made. When you've obtained the first 22 prizes in the list, then all the following Fusions should work as listed. Now for the list... 001.

If you have some Mysterious Shells, you can play a slot- machine game to win figurines representing just any person or monster in the game. When you play the game, you must first decide how many Shells you want to bet. On your first try, there will be a 99% chance to get a new figurine, but the starting percentage will rapidly drop as you get more and more new figurines. To boost your chances, you'll have to bet more and more Shells. Of course, only 100% guarantees that you'll win a new figurine, but it would be foolish to waste that many Shells. If you want to get all the figurines, you must save as many Shells as possible, because when you're missing only a few figurines, you'll need an outrageous amount of Shells to get a good percentage of success. So at the beginning, it is best to just bet 1 Shell. As you win more and more figurines, you may want to bet some more, especially if your starting chances are below 80-85%. I usually never go above 86%. However, there is something you must know. According to my experiments, every time you try, certain percentages are associated with set figurines you already have. Let's make an example: I have tried with 82% and got a figurine I already possessed. So, I reset the game and tried again with 82%, only to get THE VERY SAME figurine. This happened two more times, then I incremented the percentage to 83% and wham! – a new figurine came out. And I found out this to happen many more times thereafter. So, if you decide to play the figurine game with a try-and-reset approach, remember that if you have a certain percentage and get a figurine you already have, you must bet some more or some less Shells. The percentage does not determine IF you'll get a new figurine, but WHICH figurine you'll get. Got it? I hope so. If you find out this is not the case for you, well, this is what happened to me, so I wanted to warn you. You can only get figurines representing people or monsters you've actually seen in your adventure, so even if you have a high starting percentage, there will come a time when you can't get any new figurines. When this happens, just go on with the main quest and come back later to win some new figurines. However, the starting percentage will NOT increase, which corroborates the theory I have stated in the above paragraph (you would expect the starting percentage to increase since there are more new figurines, and therefore, more chances to get a new one, but that's not how the game works). There are 136 figurines you can win, and to get them all you must finish the game by beating the final boss. However, there is a glitch that will consider your collection complete if you get all the 130 figurines you can have before completing the final dungeon. This is important because... ...when you have all the figurines, you will receive the Carlov Medal. If you show this medal to the man sitting at the table outside Mama's Cafe, he will open the locked house just above the Cafe. Inside are the final Piece of Heart, three chests with 200 Rupees each, and a gramophone with which you can access the game's sound test. You can also get access to the house even if you only have 130 figurines, provided you haven't finished the game yet. If this is the case, the man will consider your collection complete and open up the house. However, remember that the sound test includes some tunes that can only be heard in the final battle and in the game ending, so the sound test will be incomplete if you access the house before you've completed the main quest. Now for the list. 001. Capless Link A young boy who lives in Hyrule. He is close friends with Princess Zelda. 002. Ezlo and Link A young boy on a quest with Ezlo to restore the Four Sword. 003. Princess Zelda A bright and cheery princess from Hyrule's royal family. 004. Ezlo (Cap) A strange creature that looks at first like a cap. He speaks roughly and treats Link like a child, but he actually really likes Link. 005. Sorcerer Vaati When the young Minish donned Ezlo's magic cap, he took this evil form. Now, he searches for the light force in his quest to become all-powerful. 006. King Daltus The king of Hyrule. Reported to have been a fine swordsman, he appeared in the Picori Festival tournament as a youth and fought to a draw with Smith. 007. Minister Potho The supporting pillar of Hyrule. He is also in charge of Princess Zelda's education, so when she goes missing, he gets frustrated. 008. Smith The finest swordsmith in Hyrule. As a young man, he was a great swordsman. He and King Daltus are friends and enjoyed a pleasant rivalry as youths. 009. Mayor Hagen The mayor of the town of Hyrule. He is a collector of masks. He's built a shelter into his garden just in case monsters ever attack Hyrule. 010. Marcy Second in command at Hyrule's post office. She's mellow and laid-back, entirely unlike the high-strung and easily excitable Stamp. 011. Stamp A busy, hard-working postal employee, although he can be a touch edgy. The stamp he uses is his own personal one, so please don't borrow it. Thanks. 012. Rem The proprietor of Rem's Shoe Store. Using his "secret technique", he makes shoes in his sleep. Princess Zelda is his single biggest source of outcome. 013. Dr. Left A gruff-talking academic type who is obsessed with studying the Picori.

The Blade Brothers can teach you new, powerful sword techniques, some of which are compulsory to advance in your adventure. However, there are some prerequisites to learn each new technique. Here's a list of the eight Blade Brothers: Swiftblade: he lives in Hyrule Town. His dojo is to the left of the southern entrance of the town. You must visit him at least once to learn the Spin Attack technique, which is required to get to Mt. Crenel. He can teach you four different techniques: - Spin Attack: you can learn this after you've obtained the first Element. Press the sword button to charge the attack, then release to perform a spin attack that hits 360° around you. - Rock Breaker: you can learn this after you've obtained the White Sword. Now you can use your sword to destroy pots and rocks just as they were grass. - Dash Attack: you can learn this after you've found the Pegasus Boots. Equip the Boots and the Sword at the same time, and you can run with your sword drawn out in front of you. This is useful to attack some enemies, or to cut down a line of bushes or grass. - Down Thrust: you can learn this after you've found the Roc's Cape. Jump, then when you're in midair, press the sword button to perform a powerful downward thrust. Whenever he teaches you a new technique, Swiftblade will also give you a Tiger Scroll. You can receive Tiger Scroll #1, 3, 5 and 7. Grayblade: he lives on Mt. Crenel. You need the ability to split in two to get to his dojo. Climb the wall near the cave where you bought the Grip Ring and you'll find another cave. Inside, split in two to press the two switches and unlock the dojo. Grayblade can teach you the Roll Attack. To perform it, roll with the R button, then while you're rolling, press the sword button to attack. This is a powerful attack that can help you in many different situations. After teaching you the Roll Attack, Grayblade will also give you Tiger Scroll #6. Waveblade: he lives by Lake Hylia. When you have the Flippers, swim west from Mayor Hagen's lakeside cabin to find Waveblade's dojo. If you have 10 or more Hearts, Waveblade will teach you the Peril Beam technique. When you have one Heart left, or less, you can shoot a beam from the tip of your sword. After teaching you the Peril Beam technique, Waveblade will also give you Tiger Scroll #4. Grimblade: He lives in Hyrule Castle Garden. Go to the lower-right corner of the garden to find a group of bushes, and cut them down to find a ladder leading to the dojo. If you have the Flame Lantern, light up the two torches in the dojo, and Grimblade will teach you the Sword Beam technique. This technique allows you to shoot a beam from the tip of your sword whenever you have full energy. After teaching you the Sword Beam technique, Grimblade will also give you Tiger Scroll #2. Swiftblade the First: he lives below the tombstone in Castor Wilds. He will train you only if you have all the first seven Tiger Scrolls. Swiftblade the First can teach you the Great Spin Attack technique. Charge your sword as you'd do for a Spin Attack, then quickly tap the sword button to perform four rapid Spin Attacks in a row. You can also move around while you're performing this attack. After teaching you the Great Spin Attack, Swiftblade the First will also give you Tiger Scroll #8. Greatblade: he lives under a waterfall in North Hyrule Field. You need to perform Fusion 095 to open up the cave below the waterfall. If you've learned the Great Spin Attack from Swiftblade the First, Greatblade will improve your skills with this attack, allowing you to perform it eight times in a row. Scarblade: he lives under a waterfall in Castor Wilds. You need to perform Fusion 096 to open up the cave below the waterfall. Scarblade will improve your skills with the Spin Attack, allowing you to charge up your sword more quickly. Splitblade: he lives under a waterfall at Veil Falls. You need to perform Fusion 097 to open up the cave below the waterfall. Splitblade's teachings will allow you to fill up your Spirit Gauge more quickly, so that you can split in two, three or four in less time. The first four Blade Brothers will each give you a Tiger Scroll each time you learn a new technique from one of them. Here's a quick list of these Scrolls: #1: Spin Attack. Received from Swiftblade. #2: Sword Beam. Received from Grimblade. #3: Dash Attack. Received from Swiftblade. #4: Peril Beam. Received from Waveblade. #5: Rock Breaker. Received from Swiftblade. #6: Roll Attack. Received from Grayblade. #7: Down Thrust. Received from Swiftblade. #8: Great Spin Attack. Received from Swiftblade the First. The first seven Tiger Scrolls are required to get the eight Scroll from Swiftblade the First. Also, if you've performed the Fusion that made Marcy appear at Hyrule Town's post office, every time you get a new Scroll, a new issue of Swiftblade's magazine will be available at the post office (provided you've paid for it, of course). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:05 Great Fairies ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There are three big fairies in the game. Each one of them can improve your carrying capacity for Rupees, Bombs, and Arrows respectively, provided that you prove them that you are an honest and generous person. If you fail to please them, however, they will punish you by stealing you all of the countable items that they would increase if you succeeded in pleasing them. Don't worry though, you can talk to them as many times as you want. Below I will explain where you can find the three fairies, and what you must do to receive an item from them. Great Butterfly Fairy: she lives in Minish Woods. To find her fountain, go to Eastern Hills, straight east from Eenie and Meenie's house. You will see a hole in the ground at the base of a wall. Use the Cane of Pacci to power up the hole, and hop into it to spring up to the top of the wall. From there, go right and into the tree you'll find. At the fountain, the fairy will ask you to give her all your Rupees. Say yes to everything she asks of you, and she'll reward you with a Big Wallet. Great Mayfly Fairy: she lives on Mt. Crenel. Start climbing Crenel Wall from the base. As soon as you can, go all the way right and you'll see a ledge with a signpost on it. Go to that ledge and bomb the wall on the far right to open up a cave. Inside, lay a bomb, then pick it up and throw it into the fountain. The Fairy will come out and ask you whether you dropped a Golden Bomb or a Silver Bomb. Answer "Neither" and the Fairy will reward you for your honesty with a Big Bomb Bag. Great Dragonfly Fairy: she lives in the Royal Valley. When you enter the Royal Valley from North Hyrule Field, climb down the steps, then go right and bomb the unfenced wall to find a secret cave. Inside, the Fairy will ask you to tell her of your adventures, and she will pose you five questions: Q) The first Element you found was the Fire Element, was it not? A) No. Q) Your grandfather's name is Smee, isn't it? A) No. Q) Melari of Mount Crenel has seven apprentices, does he not? A) Yes. Q) The Blabber Nut gives one the ability to understand the Minish, does it not? A) No. Q) The robe of the current king of Hyrule, Daltus, is white, is it not? A) No. If you answer all of her questions correctly, the Fairy will reward you with a Large Quiver. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:06 Rupees, Bombs and Arrows Upgrades ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ During your quest, you can improve your carrying capacity for Rupees, Bombs and Arrows. You can find: 3 Big Wallets, for a total capacity of 999 Rupees; 3 Big Bomb Bags, for a total capacity of 99 Bombs; 3 Large Quivers, for a total of 99 Arrows. Here's where you can find such upgrades.

See section SQ:02 for details. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:07 Empty Bottles ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can find a total of four Empty Bottles in the game. This section explains where and how to get them. 1 - This Bottle is compulsory to proceed in your quest. When you leave Hyrule Town to Trilby Highlands, you'll see a ladder a little to the south. Climb down the ladder and, in the cave below, bomb the right wall to open up a secret passage. On the other side, stun the Business Scrub and talk to him. He'll sell you an Empty Bottle for 20 Rupees. 2 - Perform Fusion 030. You will find this Empty Bottle in a chest in Eastern Hills. 3 - When you gain access to the Lake Hylia area, go to the northern shore of the lake to find a small hut beside a pond. In the house is a lonely dog. Use the nearby vase to get to Minish size and talk to the dog, then go to Hyrule Town. Go to Mama's Cafe and move the shelf to the left to reveal a Minish ladder. Use the vase to become a Minish, climb that ladder, and leave from the exit above the shelf. Follow this path until you get outside, then cross the narrow ledge to reach Stockwell's Shop. When you get inside the shop, use the portal and check the bottle that's resting on the crate. Stockwell will ask you to feed his dog. Accept and return to the house by the lake. There, put the dog food in the dog's bowl (press the A button to do this) and you'll be allowed to keep the Empty Bottle. 4 - Complete the Goron sidequest by performing Fusion 027, 046, 052, 059, 060 and 094. Then, use the southernmost vortex in the Lon Lon Ranch area and use it to float to the upper-right corner of the ledge surmounting the Goron cave. Enter the cave and go to its very bottom to find a chest containing an Empty Bottle. ~~~~~ SQ:08 Magical Boomerang, Light Arrows, Mirror Shield, Remote Bombs ~~~~~ The Magical Boomerang is a more powerful version of the Boomerang. When you use it, keep the button pressed and you'll be able to maneuver the Boomerang as it flies, until it reaches its farthest point. The Magical Boomerang is capable of cutting down a full line of bushes, and it flies very far. To find the Magical Boomerang, you must perform a Fusion with each of the four Tingle Brothers. They are found in South Hyrule Field, Trilby Highlands, Lake Hylia, and Lon Lon Ranch. Each time you fuse with one of them, a tree opens up in North Hyrule Field. Each tree hides a cave where you'll find a switch. Press all four switches and a ladder will appear outside. Climb it down and in the center of the cave below you will find a big chest with the Magical Boomerang inside. The Light Arrows are a more powerful version of the normal Arrows. To obtain them, you must perform Fusion 004 to create a warp to the house in the clouds. Then, use the warp and visit the house to find a sick man in a bed. He's haunted by an evil ghost. Use the Gust Jar to get rid of the ghost (follow the ghost as it moves, don't just stand still in one place or he'll escape) and the man will feel better. Later on in the game, when you reach this house from Cloud Tops, you will find that the man has recovered completely. Speak with him and he'll give you the Light Arrows. The Mirror Shield is a powerful shield that can deflect beams as well as projectiles. To get this Shield, first complete the Goron sidequest, than perform Fusion 098 (see section SQ:02 and SQ:07 for details on the Goron sidequest). Biggoron will awake at the top of Veil Falls, but you can't have him make the Mirror Shield for you yet. You must first complete the main quest by beating Vaati in Dark Hyrule Castle. When you finish the game, save after the end credits, then continue playing with the same file and go see Biggoron at Veil Falls. Accept to give him your shield, then go toying around Hyrule for a while. Come back later and Biggoron will give you the Mirror Shield. The Remote Bombs are very useful. You can lay them down and they will not explode until you press the bomb button again. This is useful if you hate waiting for a bomb to explode, or if you want it to explode at the right moment in battle. However, you can only lay one Remote Bomb at a time. To get the Remote Bombs, perform Fusion 070 and go to Belari's house near the Wind Crest in Minish Woods to receive them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:09 House Renting ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After you've found the Ocarina of Wind, the Happy Heart Inn will open in Hyrule Town. On the upper floor you will find Din, Nayru and Farore. Perform Fusion 047 with Farore and Gorman will appear in town. Go speak with Gorman and he'll ask you to find a woman to rent his house to. You can choose either of the three women. After you've rented the first house, Bremor the carpenter will appear near the town's post office. Fuse with him, and the chief carpenter will decide to build a new hose in the western side of the town. Enter and exit any house and every time you get out, another piece of the house will be built. When the house is complete, speak with Gorman again, then choose one of the two women at the Inn to rent the house to. One of the three women will remain at the Inn. Gorman plans to build another house, but there is no known way to trigger this event. The two women to whom you have rented a house will give you an amulet if you have a spare empty bottle. Using such amulet will increase your skills for some time. Din's amulet will increase your strength, Nayru's will increase your defence, and Farore's will increase both your strength and defence. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:10 Joy Butterflies ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After you've completed the Royal Crypt, you can fuse with Din, Nayru and Farore in Hyrule Town. Each time you do, a Joy Butterfly will appear near a patch of flowers somewhere in Hyrule. Here's where: Fuse with Din and a Joy Butterfly will appear in the Wind Ruins. Catch it and you'll be able to shoot arrows more quickly. Fuse with Nayru and a Joy Butterfly will appear in the graveyard. Catch it and you'll be able to swim faster, even while you're diving underwater. Fuse with Farore and a Joy Butterfly will appear in Castor Wilds. Catch it and you'll be able to dig much faster with the Mole Mitts. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:11 Swordsman Newsletters ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Swordsman Newsletter is a magazine written by Swiftblade that contains miscellaneous information about the game. To get it, you must first perform Fusion 024 so that Marcy appears in the post office in Hyrule Town. Then, you'll have to pay 200 Rupees for every issue of the magazine. Every time you learn a new sword technique and obtain a new Tiger Scroll, a new issue of the magazine will be available at the post office. You'll have to pay each time you want the upcoming issue of the magazine. There are 8 issues in all, and they're not really worth it, but the info they provide can be useful for those who didn't grow up using bombs to blow up walls, and that kind of stuff :) Below you'll find transcriptions for every issue of the magazine.

And now, let me sign off one final time with that oh-so-familiar farewell... Until next time, warriors!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SQ:12 Miscellanea ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Beedle ------ At the Hyrule Town market, after the first dungeon, you'll see a spot with a lot of dirt on it. Remove the dirt with the Gust Jar, and Beedle will eventually come to the market to sell his Picolytes. When you first see him, he'll only sell three different types of Picolytes. To make him sell more types, you'll have to speak with the Forest Minish that can be found in the upper-right corner of the room where you found the Jabber Nut in Minish Village. He will ask you to bring him some Lon Lon Milk, Crenel Hot Spring Water (green water), and Red Potion (you need to perform Fusion 051 to be able to buy the Red Potion). Every time you bring him the item he requests, Beedle will in turn have a new type of Picolyte to sell. Unfortunately, Picolytes are actually quite useless. You can put them in an empty bottle and drink them whenever you wish. When you drink a Picolyte, for a very short time you'll find a lot of items in grass/bushes/rocks/etc. The type of item you'll find changes according to the type of Picolyte you used. However, the effect of the Picolytes lasts so shortly, and the price is so high, that you may well have better results just cutting down the grass without using anything but your sword. Goron Merchant -------------- Perform Fusion 034 and the Goron Merchant will appear at the Hyrule Town Market. He sells Kinstone Pieces. The prices are high, but it may be worth it. Simon's Dungeon Simulation Game ------------------------------- Simon's Dungeon Simulation Game can be found in the house below Rem's Shoe Shop. It won't be open at the beginning of the game, but it will open after you receive the Ocarina of Wind. Pay 10 Rupees and you'll enter a dream arena where you must kill a lot of monsters. The first time you win, you'll receive a Piece of Heart. On any game thereafter, prizes may vary. Borlov's Chest Mini-Game Shop ----------------------------- This game is pretty stupid. There are two chests, and you must open one of them. If you're lucky, you'll double the Rupees you've bet, but if you choose the wrong chest, you'll lose your bet. Perform Fusion 071 and the game will get a higher level of difficulty. This game is entirely based on luck, so don't waste your time with it. Wheaton & Pita -------------- These two bake bread in the upper house on the right at Hyrule Town Market. Sometimes, when you buy one of their products, you may find a Kinstone Piece or another prize inside. Not really worth it. Anju's Cucco-Catching Game -------------------------- You can play this game anytime you wish after you get the first Element. Just speak with Anju at the lower-right corner of Hyrule Town. You'll have to catch and throw into the chicken-run the requested number of Cuccos, within the allowed time. White Cuccos are easy to catch and carry, but yellow Cuccos will escape your clutches shortly after you've lifted them up. The best way to deal with them is to pull one up, walk for a couple of seconds, and throw it forward, then immediately roll, stand up, and catch it again. With some practice you'll be able to take a yellow Cucco to the chicken-run in a short time. The game's difficulty increases as you pass more and more rounds. In the latest rounds you'll have to catch very few Cuccos, but they're pretty far from the chicken-run and most of them are yellow. You can win lots of Rupees and Mysterious Shells at this game. Once you have the Flippers, you can easily win the most difficult round and win a Piece of Heart. Danpé's Trail ------------- If you speak with Danpé the gravekeeper after you've accessed the Royal Crypt, he'll mention part of a path that you can follow through the Lost Woods. The complete path is Left Left Left Up Up Up Up In the final screen you'll find a chest containing 200 Mysterious Shells. From there, go up once more and you'll end up in the graveyard. Link's Room's "Secret" --------------------- If you go near the table in Link's room, Ezlo will mention some "secrets" Link may be hiding. Now, if you go outside the house and dig near the left window, where Link's room should be, you'll find a red Rupee. If you re-enter the house and get out again, you can dig again for another red Rupee. This trick can be repeated as many times as you like, so you basically have an infinite Rupee supply. Whether this has anything to do with Ezlo's comment is another matter entirely, though :) ============================================================================== 04. FAQS ============================================================================== Q. What do I do after <insert game checkpoint here>? A. Check the walkthrough to find out. Q. Where do I find <insert item name here>? A. You'll find an item when the game wants you to find it. The only unnecessary items in the game are the Boomerang, the Magical Boomerang, the Light Arrows, the Mirror Shield, the Remote Bombs, and three of the four Empty Bottles. You can check the appropriate sections in Chapter 03: SIDEQUESTS to find the info you need. For compulsory items, just wait to find them in your quest. Q. How do I beat <insert boss name here>? A. Read the section of the walkthrough relative to that boss's dungeon. The bosses in this game are way too easy to deserve a separate section. Q. How do I "split"? A. First, you must have visited the Elemental Sanctuary in Hyrule Castle's basement with two or more Elements in your possession. In the Sanctuary, insert your sword in the pedestal and it will receive the power of the Elements you currently possess. When you find some glowing tiles somewhere, charge up your sword by holding the sword button and wait for the green Spirit Gauge that's below your life energy gauge to fill to the max. When it's full, step on as many of the glowing tiles as the Elements you have infused your sword with. When you step on the last tile, you'll create as many clones of yourself as the Elements you have infused your Sword with. The clones can help you press switches, push big blocks, etc. Q. You are mentioning characters' names in the FAQ. How do you know them? A. The Figurines will tell you the names of all the monsters and all the important characters in the game. If you don't know who someone is, please check section SQ:03 for details. Q. Are there any unsolved mysteries in this game? A. Sadly, yes. For example, nobody knows how to build a house for the third of the three women living in the Happy Heart Inn (Din, Nayru and Farore). Although Gorman gives a clue about the place where he'd like to build the house, nobody has yet found a way to do so. Q. Does this game quote other Zelda games? A. Almost all of them, actually. The graphics are from The Four Swords, and are in fact a 2D rendition of The Wind Waker's cel-shading. The music comes from practically every Zelda game to date. The voice samples are from The Wind Waker, although some of them, such as Ezlo's, are brand new. The characters mainly come from the 3D Zelda games: here you'll find King Daltus, Zelda, Gorman, Din, Nayru and Farore, Anju, Beedle, Zill, the Gorons, Syrup, Danpé, Malon and Talon, the Cuccos and, unfortunately for many, Tingle. That's not even mentioning the monsters, very few of which are new entries. On the other hand, there's a good number of never-seen- before items, such as the Gust Jar, the Cane of Pacci(although it's not the first Cane in the series), the Mole Mitts, and the Grip Ring. Q. Is this game good? A. It is damn good, yes. Even if it's easier than any other Zelda game published since the N64's days, it has the Zelda magic that The Wind Waker somewhat lacks. And yes, you should buy this game. It IS much better than Sword of Mana, if that's what you want to know, and much better than the majority of GBA games. Although A Link to the Past is still better, and it makes you use your brains a lot more than The Minish Cap. Q. Where does this game fit in the Zelda timeline? A. I don't know, nor do I care. This is something you should discuss with a lot of people on message boards. Good luck finding your answer. Q. Does the name "Picori" have anything to do with the name "Minish"? A. Actually, yes. "Picori" is, in fact, a mistranslation due to the fact that in Japanese, both the "r" and "l" sounds are written as "r". The true name should be "Picoli", for a very simple reason: in Italian, "piccoli" means "tiny ones" (piccolo = tiny one, piccoli = tiny oneS). So evident is the reference, that in the Italian translation the Picori are called just "gnomes". ============================================================================== 05. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ============================================================================== Thanks to... Everyone who was involved in the creation of this game. Although easy and short-lived, it is as enjoyable and intense as every other Zelda game. I personally like it very much. GameFAQs, for hosting my FAQs. Mike "TSA" Damiani, world-record Zelda speedrunner, for clearing up that there's nothing new in the US version of the game apart from some minor text changes. This spared me the trouble of going through the whole game again. Jos Quelqu'un, gravy229, Neil Abrahamson, Geoff Greemore, Steve Stonebraker, kwas444, and Jack Coldwell for reminding me about the third Bomb Bag (the second in my list). I just can't understand how I could forget about it, but fortunately, the world is full of people more aware than me ^_^ Gostevie2 for telling me how to perform Fusion 067 even if the Town Library is closed forever. Derrick Staples and Dustin Marche (Magineman) for suggesting an alternative (and much less troublesome) method to get through room 2F-7 in Dark Hyrule Castle. Chris O'Brien for suggesting me to write a few lines about Link's room's "Secret". I knew about that already, but I just supposed anyone would know about it by now. Anyway, it never hurts to add some info, now does it? :) Matt Swartz for telling me about one of the attacks of Vaati's final form. GhostAnime for correcting a direction ("east" instead of "west") in the walkthrough for Lon Lon Ranch. The people at the GameFAQs forums, for providing some information on some aspects of the game. And you, for reading this FAQ.
