Follow it as far as you can until you need to put on your Iron Boots. Defeat the Shell Blade with a thrust attack or spin attack then continue. Continue until you need to take off your Iron Boots. Swim up avoiding the Bari until you enter the main dungeon. After the cutscene, defeat the Chu Jellies and climb the stairs. Face the south and jump off the ledge to hold onto the handle and pull it thus opening the door. In this next room there are several geysers and stalactites. After the scene, shoot the remaining stalactites with bomb arrows. Follow down the path avoiding the Helmasuars. Climb up on the ledge to your left and then climb up north. Climb up back to the path and open the door. Cross the bridge and enter the next door to be in the main room of the dungeon. This is the confusing part of the dungeon. When you enter, go down the stairs straight ahead of you the go to the left. Follow it until you are in the very south of the room. You should be facing the Big Door. Jump off and grab the handle to make the stairs turn toward you. Let go and head up. At the top take a right and go past the door to see a moving pot. Inside is OOCCOO. Now head to the west side of the room on the same floor. Now jump off and grab the handle to turn the stairway east and west. Go down the stairs to the first floor on the east side. Now before you enter the door, go to the left and open the chest for your most useful item, the DUNGEON MAP. Now enter the door. Inside step up and and blow up the stalactites. Now go to a small tunnel on the left and cross to the middle. Climb the vines until you reach the platform. When the geyser rises the platform up, jump on it and across to where there is a chest with a SMALL KEY. Now exit this room the same way you entered. When you are back in the main room, go up the stairs and the go to the right. Go to the locked door on the second floor, east side. Open it. Now you can go to the right and open the chest with some Water Bombs. Now go to the left of the door. Blow up the two stalactites and climb up the one on the right then jump up to climb on the vines. Climb up and to the left. Drop off onto the top of the wall. Walk across, then jump off and grab the handle to make the gate open. This makes travel easier. Follow the path until you come to a rock wall. Blow it up with a bomb to find a door and some raging Helmasuars. But first lets go to the door against the wall on the west. You will now be in a room which seems to be some cog. Jump on it and defeat the Lizalfos. Now go across the cog to the door on the other side. Open it. Over here, go to the right to find a chest with a SMALL KEY. Now head back to where you blew up the rock where the Helmasuars are. Avoid them and open the door. Inside you will see a weird little creature hop into a bubble. Defeat it with bomb arrows or ignore it to conserve bombs and arrows. Now open the locked door on the right. On the left from where you enter climb on the ledge and then jump off onto the vines. Climb up then climb onto the ledge to find a small ramp. Follow it up defeating the Tektites until you come to a chest. Open it to find bombs or if you are full of those they will be arrows. Now climb up one of the ladders and then jump off the platform and grab the handle to open a water way. This has opened one of the two water reservoir towers. You need to open two to raise the water to get to the Bosses room. Now jump back down the slide and slide all the way down until you land in some water. Swim to the middle pillar and climb up. Jump off the ledge and grasp the handle to make a gate open leading water into the rest of the chambers. Now exit the doors on the left. Exit back through the cog room and then head back to the main room. When in here, go down the stairs to the first floor then go to the southern part of this floor. Pull on the handle then climb the stairs to the second floor. Now go to the west. Pull on the handle here to turn the bridge. Now head down the stairs and enter the door on the first floor east. Now the cogs will be moving because the water is turning them so jump on one and enter the door on the north. In here go to the right and open the chest for a SMALL KEY. Now head back to the previous room. Hop back on the cog and go to the door to the east. In here open the locked door to enter a room with water. Hop into the water and put on your Iron Boots. Defeat the Shell Blade while ignoring the Bari, then bomb the rock. Follow the path until you need to take off the Iron Boots. Swim up to enter a small lair. Defeat the small Toado that drops from the ceiling then look at the ceiling with C-Stick up to start the Mid-Boss Battle! MID-BOSS BATTLE- DEKU TOAD This huge fatty frog might seem vicious at first but don't fret my children, he is pretty easy. He will start by shaking off Toados from his back. Defeat them with a spin attack. Once all are defeated he will jump on the ceiling. He will then try to jump on you, but run around avoiding his shadow. When he lands it will knock him out. Go around to his tounge and chop it up. Now run to his mouth and when he yawms, shoot a bomb arrow at his tounge. This will again make him unconscious. Slice his tounge when you have the chance. Repeat once or twice more. This will defeat him making him cough up a chest with the CLAWSHOT. LAKEBED TEMPLE- BASEMENT ONE, FIRST FLOOR, SECOND FLOOR, THIRD FLOOR, AND FOURTH FLOOR Now face the south and clawshot the medallion on the ceiling to pull open the gate. Drop down and exit. When back outside, head south out the door, then make your way onto one of the cogs. Jump on, and when you face the entrance, Clawshot the vines on the wall to project yourself to the door. Open it and return to the main room. When in here, use the Clawshot to propell yourself over the wall by using the vines on the right. Now follow the path to the west side on the first floor. Now before you can access the rest of the dungeon you must Clawshot the medallion where there is suppose to be a handle. This will redirect the stairs and the water. Now enter the door behind you. Run between the path of the moving water wheel and open the door on the other side of the wheel. In here, Clawshot the medallion on the cog above the chest. Lower yourself onto the small island with the chest holding Bombs. Directly to the west is a pillar with vines on the side. Latch onto it to pull yourself up. Climb over onto the small ledge. Now facing the pillar, look to your right. There is another wall with vines. Latch onto it to be on another ledge. Now look to the west to see more vines on the wall. This will lead you to a door. Open it to be on the outside of where you were just at. To the north is a Chu Worm. L-Target him and pull him out with the Clawshot. Chop him up to defeat him. Go around to what seems to be a dead end, but not so fast! Shoot the stalactites off the ceiling, and use the jet stream to ride up. Now drop down to what seems to be another dead end ledge that you can't reach, but there is a Clawshot medallion above the door. Use it then open the door. In this similar room there are two Chu Worms, defeat them both, then use the Clawshot on the vines to the right side on the ceiling. Latch on, then jump down on the ledge. On the left from where you landed are some vines. Clawshot them to find another ramp. Go up until you come to a broken ledge and a waterspout. Clawshot the medallion on the wall when the water is down to cross. Continue up while defeating the Helmasaurs with the Clawshot. When you come to another ledge, just Clawshot the medallion. Continue until you come to another ladder. Climb the ladder and then pull the handle. This makes more water enter the tower. Now, right below where the water comes from the top is a Clawshot medallion. Latch on to land right in front of the chest. Open it for the COMPASS. Now jump over the railing and slide down the slide. You will land in the water which is full of Skull-fish. Quickly climb on the middle pillar and pull on the handle to allow water into the rest of the dungeon. If you want to waste some time, you can fish for the Skull-fish. CAUTION: They still will hurt you on land! Now exit out using the vines, but go through the door on the right (which is the south side). You will be in a room with a small bit of water. Swim across then pass through the water wheel. Now enter to the double cog room. Slay the foe in this room, then go over to the wall vines and climb down. You are now back in the lower part of this room. Now go back and Clawshot the vines on the north of the room. Now Clawshot the moving cog when the medallion comes by. NOTE: Make sure you Clawshot the eastern one. Patience on Clawshotting the right spot, but when you do, don't drop! Lower yourself on the small island on the southern part of the room. When you land, Clawshot onto the east vines where you entered this room to begin with. When up there, jump onto one of the moving cogs, while on here, jump on another cog, then Clawshot onto the ledge to enter a small room with a lot of water. Go to the left side and put the Iron Boots on. There will be a small ledge with a Bomb rock and some Bombfish. Blow up the rock and head through. When through, drop down again to another rock. Blow this one up as well. Swim up to the surface where there is a ledge and a door. Open the door. Clawshot the medallion on the roof to open a ledge, now lower yourself down in front of the large chest. Open it for the BIG KEY. Now jump in the water with your Iron Boots on and go through the door. Now defeat the Bari with your Clawshot and swim around until you get back to the entrance of the room. Exit out back into the cog room. Clawshot the medallions on one of the moving cogs, then drop down on the ledge where you found bombs. Now look to where the door is and fire the Clawshot to the vines. Climb up and exit through the door. Now back in the main room climb up the stairs to the second floor, then Clawshot one of the medallions on the chanelier. This will drop you in front of a chest holding a PIECE OF HEART. Now jump down landing on the stairs. You will now slide down the step to the first floor. Go around to the east side using the Clawshot to propell yourself over the barricade. Now you should be in front of the eastern first floor door. Now jump off the ledge and hold onto the handle. This will redirect the water. Now enter this room again. Since there should be water in this room now, go over to the bridge that just raised on the south and climb up. Cross it and then stand on the pressure switch. Out of here will come a Lizalfos. Defeat it then get back on the pressure switch. Now Clawshot the medallion on the wall to get near the chest. Openn the chest for the last PIECE OF HEART. Now head back into the main room. Jump down into the middle of this room with the water. Climb onto the ledge in the middle and go around until you are in front of the boss door. Open it and you can break the pots inside for hearts and a fairy. Now drop down the hole for the boss battle! BOSS BATTLE- TWILIT AQUATIC MORPHEEL Drop down using the Iron Boots to land in front of a large tentacle. This will turn out to be the boss. Ok, back up some to avoid being swallowed then Clawshot the eye moving about in a random tentacle. When you pull it out, slice it with your sword. Repeat three times. Avoid the Bombfish he spits out. After that he will reveal his true form. Take off the Iron Boots and swim towards his eye on his back. Swim while L-Targeting, and when you are close enough, use the Clawshot to grab onto his eye. Unsheath your sword and stab his eye. On the second or third time doing this, press A to deliver the Final Blow. You will be rewarded with the LAST FUSED SHADOW and a HEART CONTAINER.
