After goind up the stairs, go to the left alcove running across the sand to obtain a SMALL KEY. You can optionally go to the right alcove for some Lantern Oil because the next room is dark and requires a Lanter. Now you can open the door and enter a dark chamber. Walk straight ahead then suddenly a ton of small skeletal creatures will rise from the sand. Make good use of the spin attack to get them out of your way. Now light the two torches next to the sealed door to open it. Now enter into the next room where four lanterns take the fire from the pillars. Three of them will go in different directions. One will stay to fight you. Turn into a wolf and use your senses. Now bite and grab hold to the ghost by pressing A repeatedly. Do that twice to make it fall on its back. Now finish him off to get the first POE. The Poe leaves behind a scent. Sniff it to learn the POE'S SCENT. Use your senses to see that the trail goes in three different directions. But first turn into a human to get some helpful items. In the northeast corner is a chest with a PIECE OF HEART. Now go over to the northwest corner and defeat the Bubble then walk across to obtain the DUNGEON MAP. Now go over to the eastern wall to find a small patch of sand. Dig here to reveal a chain.

Transform into a wolf and switch on your senses to see the second Poe. Defeat him for the second POE. Now backtrack to the room where you learned the Poe's Scent. Now two torches are lit! ARBITER'S GROUNDS- FIRST FLOOR Now go to the eastern door in this chamber. When in here open the locked door to enter a large room. In this room, go to the left side and follow the path avoiding spikes that randomly pop up. When you reach the land where a large block is, pull it back some, then push it into the slot. Now go up the stairs and grab the chain handle. Pull it back to make the large chandelier rise up. Pull it back as far as possible then run past before it falls on you. Climb the stairs and enter the door. ARBITER'S GROUNDS- SECOND FLOOR In this circular room, go to the southern alcove to find a chest with your COMPASS! Now go to the central pillar and rotate it 90 degrees. This will open the way to the east alove where a ReDead rests. Defeat it with Bomb Arrows, then open the chest behind him. In here is another SMALL KEY. Now open the locked door to the west to continue. In this weird shaped room lies a bunch of small skeletal creatures and two ReDeads. Defeat all the enemies, then follow the scent to a small patch of sand. Dig there to reveal a chain. Pull it to open the gate revealing the third Poe. Defeat him for the third POE. Now enter the door to the north. This room is very quiet and suspicious. Go down and open the chest for a SMALL KEY. Now you will start to walk very slowly. Weird.

Quickly run over and stand in the very middle to have it fall around you. Climb on the chandelier the enter the door to the west. This star-chamber has a memorable enemy in it. In here is a Stalfos. Defeat him with a regular Bomb Arrow. Ah, doesn't this dungeon remind you of the days of Ocarina of Time? The Forest Temple with all of those Stalfos and the four Poes? Good times. Anyway, after he is defeated enter the door to the south. ARBITER'S GROUNDS- SECOND FLOOR In here is a statue with a snake wrapped around a girl. This is a puzzle where you have to light specific lanterns. Light the one in the front and the one on the back row to the left. If you get confused, turn your senses on to see where the Poe has been. This will open the rest of the way. In this room is the last Poe. Like in Ocarina of Time, there is a different way to defeat him. He will split into four. Right before he attacks you, the real Poe will be brighter than the rest. Attack this one. Repeat once more to defeat the fourth POE. Now enter the door to the north. Now get out your Clawshot and shoot the medallion above the eastern door. Latch on then jump down. Open the door to return to the main room.

Now go north then east avoiding spikes to the southeast corner where there is a chain handle. Pull on it as far as you can, the go to over where you fought the ReDead, no go over to the middle then south to squeeze through the closing wall. Once you pass this allows you to continue. Walk down this alley as human trying to stay out of the sand and the way of the enemy spinners. Half way down the isle some small creatures will jump all over you. They don't hurt you, so let them climb on you then use a spin attack to defeat them. Continue on your way the go to the southern alcove where there are many pots. Pick up the moving pot to reunite with OOCCOO. Now enter the door to the north. When you enter you will be met by more poison mites. Defeat them as usual, then go north avoiding the rotating spikes. When you pass the spikes you will see two Stalfos. Defeat them with Bomb Arrows, then go over to the right to find another Stalfos. Defeat it to open the path back where the door was. Backtrack to here, to see a couple of platforms and Clawshot medallions. Clawshot the first medallion to land on the falling block, then quickly Clawshot to the right landing on another platform, now jump up on the ledge, then jump across the gap. Now hook a left then enter the northern door for the mid-boss fight! MID-BOSS BATTLE- DEATH SWORD This isn't the hardest battle, but it can be tricky. When you walk in, slice one of the ropes to cause the giant sword to move and rise. After this happens, turn into a wolf and switch on your senses. You will see the giant beast which you can latch onto and press A repeatedly to have him turn into a solid. Transform into a human and get out your Bow. Shoot him with an arrow to have him fly around the room. When he stops, he will get in the middle and try to smash you with his sword.

ARBITER'S GROUNDS- BASEMENT TWO This item is an amazing item that allows you to latch onto the grated wall and spin around. You can use A to jump and attack enemies.

ARBITER'S GROUNDS- BASEMENT TWO, BASEMENT ONE, FIRST FLOOR In here, use the Spinner on the right, then jump over to the left, then to the right, then onto a circular island with and enemy spinner. Jump on and go around until you make your way to the right some to another grate. This will lead you up. Stop when you come to a near chest gaurded by a Stalfos. Defeat him, then open the chest for a PIECE OF HEART. Now use the Spinner on the right and avoid the giant spinning spikes, then jump across using A a couple times until you start to go up even more to the First Floor. Land on the path defeating the Stalfos, the jump back and forth using the Spinner to avoid enemy spinners. When you make it across, run straight ahead and open the chest for the BIG KEY!

Use the Spinner here to ride up all the way to the bosses door. BOSS BATTLE- TWILIT FOSSIL STALLORD When you enter, walk up some to be met by Zant! He tells you that the end is near for you and he strikes the giant skull head with a glowing red and black sword bringing it to life! When the battle starts, run up to the Spinner grate and use the Spinner to go around. When you get far enough to the back of Stallord, jump off the grate and ride the Spinner over to his spine while avoiding the Staltroop that pop up out of the sand. When you get to his spine, press A to break part of it. Repeat that, but this time you have to deal with enemy spinners, and Staltroopers will gaurd Stallord's spine. Defeat the Staltroopers with A, then when you can, press A to break more of the spine. After hitting the spine three times, this will knock the monster out revealing a large central pillar.
