Note to Readers Before you read this guide, I want to state a few things. First off, I would like to ask that nobody e-mail me with questions about parts of the game that I have not yet covered in this guide. If it isn't here, I haven't played it yet, therefore I won't be able to help. Any such e-mails will be promptly deleted. If you are interested in posting this guide on your site, see the last section for distribution information. If I find that you've posted it without permission, I'll contact your host. Finally: I do not need any help in finishing this guide. If you really want to help, make your own guide. Thank you. =============================================================================== Table of Contents i. Introduction and Revision History I. Story II. Characters III. Game Overview IV.

Information WARNING: Spoilers begin in section IV. =============================================================================== i. Introduction and Revision History =============================================================================== Introduction ------------ As you can see, this guide is severely incomplete for the time being, as I don't want to take the chance of not getting my FAQ posted for the game due to oversaturation in the near future. This guide will remain incomplete until I get my guide for Oracle of Seasons done. Once that's done, I'll start working on this one again (but I'll most likely update this one in between updates to my OoS guide, it depends.) In the meantime, check out AstroBlue / Shdwrlm3's guide for the game, as it contains everything you need to know. As for the game... The next game in the Zelda series is actually a two part game; you have the Oracle of Ages and the Oracle of Seasons. Both games are different unlike the Pokemon games, so buy them both if you haven't done so already. Since I'm only one person and I'm currently involved with three other guides at the moment, updates will be very sporadic, so bear with me! Revision History ---------------- v0.01 - May 15, 2001 - Initial release. First part of the walkthrough is complete, but much more will come in future revisions. =============================================================================== III. Game Overview =============================================================================== Controls -------- A Button: Use item assigned to button A B Button: Use item assigned to button B Start: Pause the game; bring up menu D-Pad: Use to navigate Link around Select: Bring up on-screen map A + B + Start + Select: Restart game. Gasha Seeds ----------- You can find a total of 16 Gasha Seeds throughout the game (see Gasha Seed Listing section) and they can be planted inside soft dirt patches outside where they will then grow into trees, thus producing nuts with cool items inside. Check the Gasha Seed Listing section for all current Gasha Seed Locations that I've found. Rings ----- A change from old Zelda games, this one contains Rings. Rings give Link magical powers (depending on which one he wears) and can be found all over the game (see Ring Listing section.) Before given access to using rings, you'll first need a Ring Box to carry them in. For ring descriptions and locations, see the Ring Listing section. Saving/Loading -------------- To save your game, press start anytime during the game and then press select twice to move over to the save screen. Select the "save" option and you'll be able to save/continue or save/quit. When you save, you can later access your game by selecting your name from the save slot menu and you'll leave off where you last saved. More to come... =============================================================================== IV. Walkthrough =============================================================================== Items: Wooden Sword Select a save slot, enter your name and choose a message speed to begin the game. When you're left to play, go north a screen to hear somebody cry out for help. It's Impa - she's being attacked by enemies. As Link comes in, the enemies flee and Impa will follow you wherever you go for fear of being attacked again. Go north a screen then west a screen to find a rock with the Hyrulian symbol painted on it. Impa asks you to move it, so do just that -- go north two screens to find Nayru singing. Talk to one of the animals twice for it to move, then list to Nayru's singing. You'll then be introduced to Nayru and her friend, Ralph. After they tell you what's going down, the evil Veran will appear and steal Nayru's body then warp back in time. Ralph will run off to save her, and Link will go and talk to Impa, who explains what you must do and gives you the Wooden Sword. She then tells you to go see the Maku Tree in Lynna Village, so that shall be your next destination. Go south into Lynna City then go north (stop at the jewelry shop if you want to get a ring/box) and through the cave into Maku Road. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Lynna City =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Items: Shovel, Heart Piece Now in Maku Road, go north three screens and down the stairs to find the Maku Tree. The Maku Tree will disappear due to something Veran has done in the past, so go right a screen and use the time portal. You've gone back in time! Head south in Lynna Village again and head: left a screen, south a screen, left a screen, north a screen, left 2 screens (stop in the building here for a Gasha Seed), south 4 screens, right 1 screen and talk to the miner to view a custcene about the tower. Go north into the Black Tower and head right a sceen, north a screen and left a screen to find a miner reading something near four black holes in the ground. Talk to him and he'll give you a shovel which you can use to shovel dirt. Backtrack out of the Black Tower and use your shovel on the dirt to the right to get your first heart piece. Exit this excavation area and go back to where the Maku gate is (near the entrance of Lynna Village.) Use your shovel to remove the dirt in front of the cave, then go in to enter Maku Path. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Maku Path =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Items: Small Key, Heart Piece Legend: |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| ------------ |-|-|H| |K|-|-|-| K - Small Key |-|-| | | |-|-|-| H - Heart Piece |-|-|-| |-|-|-|-| - Area of map not accessible. S - Start |-|-|-|S|-|-|-|-| |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| Go north a screen and push the block up to open the door -- go through it. Push the block to the left/right to clear a path, then go right one screen. Kill all the enemies in this room to open the doors, then go through the north door and push the block into the gap in the floor. Go right, move the two blocks out of your way and step on the switch to make a treasure chest appear. Go back around to the other side of the room and open the chest to get a small key. Exit back into the central room and use your small key on the door to the left. Push the blocks on the left out of the way then step on the switch to open the doors -- go north. Kill the two stalfos then push the blocks to get a heart piece. Push the lone block to open the doors; go right. Go up the flight of stairs and you'll find the Maku Tree (when she was just a little child) being tormented by two enemies. Kill them both and the Maku Tree will remove the gate for you. Go south and through the time portal to return to present time. More to come... =============================================================================== VI. Item Listing =============================================================================== Bombs ----- As with every Zelda game, you'll have bombs. Bombs can be used to blow up cracked walls, damage enemies, etc. You can either buy them in shops or find them in chests/grass/shrubs. Most of the time, bombs are necessary to have in order to get past a dungeon, so make sure you keep a good stock. Hearts ------ Use these to replenish lost health. Each heart replenishes one empty heart on your meter. You can find hearts after killing enemies, chopping shrubs/grass, and pretty much everywhere else. These hearts are different from heart pieces and heart containers, as they don't increase your meter, just the supply on your meter. Heart Container --------------- Four heart pieces will result in this. Every heart container you collect will give you one extra heart on your life meter. You'll automatically receive a heart container after defeating each dungeon boss, otherwise the only other way to get them is by collecting heart pieces. Heart Pieces ------------ Every four heart pieces make one heart container. Heart pieces are scattered all throughout the game and are always placed in hard-to-reach areas. When you collect four, your life meter will increase by one. For all heart piece locations, please refer to the "Heart Piece Locations" section. Seeds ----- These seeds serve as fire -- you can light unlit torches with them, but you must first receive the Satchel to carry them in. The Satchel can be found in the first level (Gnarled Root Dungeon, see walkthrough for more details on how to get the Satchel.) If you run out, you can find more seeds by chopping up shrubs and grass. Small Key --------- You'll find small keys in all caves/dungeons. Sometimes they're in chests, sometimes they're not. All dungeons have locked doors that require the use of small keys. You can carry more than one small key at a time, but once you use it on a door, you cannot use it again. Most small keys can be found by performing certain tasks such as moving blocks, killing enemies or stepping on switches. Wooden Sword ------------ This is the first sword you'll get in the game. You can find it inside the Hero's Cave (which is located on the beach in Horon Village) and equip it to one of your action buttons (A or B.) This sword will kill basic enemies as well as chop away shrubs, grass or any other small items. See the walkthrough on how to get this sword. =============================================================================== VII. Ring Listing =============================================================================== No. 1 - Friendship Ring Location: Lynna City (Vasu Jewelry) Description: Symbol of a meeting =============================================================================== VIII. Heart Piece Locations =============================================================================== #1: After getting the shovel from the miner in the Black Tower, exit the tower an look to your right. You'll see two dirt piles with the heart piece behind them. Use your shovel to remove the dirt piles and collect heart piece number one. #2: When you enter Maku Path (past), you'll find a room with this heart piece behind some blocks. Maneuver the blocks so there's an open path then go inside to get the heart piece. More to come... =============================================================================== IX. Gasha Seed Listing =============================================================================== Gasha Seed #1 ------------- After entering Lynna Village for the first time (in the past) you'll find an isolated house with some dirt piles just outside. The owner of this house hates Gasha Seeds, so if you talk to him, you'll get your first Gasha Seed that can be planted in the soft dirt patch just south one screen. More to come... =============================================================================== X. Frequently Asked Questions =============================================================================== Q. Why do you have things listed in the Table of Contents that aren't even in the guide yet? A. Consider them to be "previews" of what will be added to this guide in the near future. I haven't added them yet because I haven't had time or I've been working on other sections of the guide. Just be patient and they'll all be done soon enough. Q. I'm stuck and your walkthrough doesn't cover the area I'm stuck in. What should I do? A. Wait. Don't e-mail me asking about areas I haven't entered yet, as I will not have an answer for you. I update the walkthrough as I play through the game, so you'll just have to be patient and wait for me to finish. If you don't like it, start your own guide. =============================================================================== XII.
