Use the Gust Jar to navigate down the water fall then to the east, north, then east. Now in here, maneuver the lilypad right in front of the steps and walk up. Push one of the pots onto the button to lower the wall. Now coninue east and north. You will now be back in the room with the hard to reach chest. Not any more! Move the lilypad around to the chest then open it for a SMALL KEY. Now backtrack all the way past the stairs where you pushed the pot on the button an this time go north and to the west. Open the locked door to the northwest. In here, grab the mushroom to propell yourself to the northwest corner. Now use the Gust Jar on the mushroom to the right to launch yourself to another ledge. Now use the Gust Jar again on another mushroom to the right to be in the northeast corner. Now go down a bit and use the Gust Jar on the left mushroom and if positioned just right, you will land in front of the chest with the BIG KEY. Now walk to the south then to the right and step on the switch. This will reveal a red portal. Use it to be back in the first room. Now use the blue portal to be warped to a ledge with a PIECE OF HEART. Now warp back and use the Gust Jar on the left side then walk up the stairs. DEEPWOOD SHRINE- FIRST FLOOR Push the block in front of the chest, then open it for a RED RUPEE. That is worth 20. Now go back down the stairs. DEEPWOOD SHRINE- BASEMENT ONE Now go to the right and suck away the spiderweb and go back upstairs. DEEPWOOD SHRINE- FIRST FLOOR In the middle of the room on a little island is a mushroom. Suck it up with the Gust Jar to propell your self to the left side of the room. Now walk to the south and use the Gust Jar on the mushroom again to go north and you will land right in front of the bosses door. BOSS BATTLE- GIANT CHU JELLY There will be a small sceen where it shows a normal Chu Jelly jump onto the shirne. In will lower itself into the dungeon, but since you are small, this guy is huge! Here is how to beat him: Use the Gust Jar to suck up the goo at the base of the Chu. When done enough, he will become unstable and his head will fall to the ground. Now run over to his head and slice it up as many times as you can. Repeat the process, but this time he will jump around a lot so wait until he stops jumping to suck up the goo. Once he is defeated, you will receive the EARTH ELEMENT. Now run over and pick up the HEART CONTAINER. Now exit via the blue portal.
