There are two platforms with treasure chests on them. They contain a Blue (5) and Yellow (10) Rupee. Now exit the spirits spring. Now go to your left on the boardwalk, and go to the man named Fyer. Pay him 10 Rupees to give it a shot and he will blast you to the top of Lake Hylia. When you are up, go in the door to the right. Climb down the ladder inside and exit out the door. Walk up these steps a few ways and stop. Turn around back towards the small house and get out your boomerang. Use it on the small weathervane on the top of the house. This will stop a rotating platform in the middle of the lake. Now enter back in the house you just exited from. When you enter, walk straight ahead and talk to the guy on the left. His name is Falbi. He says to pay him 20 rupees to get a chance to fly to the Isle of Riches. This is the rotating platform you just stopped. Now grab any cucco in the room and jump off the ledge and fly towards the island that looks like stairs. The best way to do this is to hold the control stick down to avoid flying over the isle. If your not going to make it, put on your Iron Boots to drop down on the small square platform. Open this for an Orange Rupee (100). Now drop down on level and open this chest for a PIECE OF HEART. You collected five pieces which means another Heart Container! Now keep going down opening the chests. They are a Purple (50), Red (20), and Yellow (10) Rupee. Now drop down and go to where you fought the three Twilight Messengers. Now there is a small wooden walkway. Cross it and then climb the ladder. When you climb up you may notice the howling stone. You obviously cant howl here yet, so continue on the path and to the left is a dead end wall with a bomb rock in it. This is another cave where you must use your lantern. There are several Yellow Chu Jellies in here which means you can scoop their remains for Lantern Oil. This is the longest cave yet with several enemies and different ways to go. Follow your map and my directions and we can get to the Piece of Heart at the end. You also need some bombs, so make sure you have about 10. Enter the cave and go north through the only path to a small room. Light the center torch and put your lantern away to conserve oil. There are bomb rocks to the north, east, and west. If you need bombs, bomb the wall to the west and there is a chest here with some bombs. You can bomb the north wall for a Yellow Rupee (10). Now to continue down the path, go to the east. Follow the path as it goes east, then curves north. In this room there are some Yellow Chu Jellies. First light the center torch, then defeat the jellies, then scoop their remains in a bottle and you can use that for Lantern Oil when you run out. You can optionally bomb the west wall for a chest with a Red Rupee (20). Now bomb the wall to the east to continue. Follow the path to the next small circular room. In here is a floating lamp, known as a Poe. You cannot defeat it now, so light the center torch and you can bomb the wall to the east for a chest with arrows. These are important because there are a few Beamos down the road. Now continue north. Be careful here, because there is a pit here. If you fall in, you start at the beginning of the cave. Defeat the Tektites down the path, and before you enter the next small room, stop! You will see a rotating red eye. Shoot it with an arrow. Yep, that was a Beamos, and those guys can be deadly. Now in this small alcove, you can bomb the north wall for a Red Rupee (20). Now continue to the west. In here, light the two torches to reveal a chest with an Orange Rupee (100). You can defeat the Yellow Chu Jellies in here for some more Lantern Oil. Now continue to the west. You will follow the path west then it will curve north into a chamber with a Dodongo. Defeat it then light the center torch. Bomb the north wall to find a chest with bombs. If you bomb the east wall you will find light beaming down. Dont enter in there because you will exit. Just continue west. In the next chamber is another Beamos, so shoot its eye from a distance. Light the torch and you can optionally bomb the south and west walls for a Purple Rupee (50) and some Arrows. Now just continue north. This next path is a dangerous stretch, but we are almost there! This path will curve to the east to another chamber. There is a Poe in here, but ignore it. Light the center torch and take care of the Dodongo. If you bomb the north and east walls, you will get a Purple Rupee (50) and some bombs. Now continue down the south path. It will curve to the east. In this chamber are more Dodongos and another Yellow Chu Jelly. You can optionally blow up the north wall for a chest with some seeds. Now continue east into another chamber! Defeat the enemies in here and then open the chest for an Orange Rupee (100). Now continue south down a narrow path. Be careful, then you will arrive in another chamber. This is the last room! Ignore the Poe in here and light the two torches. These reveals a chest with our longed for PIECE OF HEART. Collect four more for another Heart Container. Step into the light to return to Lake Hylia. Now go back to Fyer and use the cannon to get to Falbis house. Exit out that house then walk north some near two rocks. Near here is some horse grass. Blow on it to call Epona. Hop on her and ride to the Great Hylian Bridge. Before you cross the bridge, look at the archway to find a Golden Bug on it. Use the Gale Boomerang to retrieve it. You got the MALE MANTIS! Now you can cross the bridge to find the mail man again! He gives you 2 LETTERS. One is from Barnes about his new bombs and the other one is about the Lanayru Tourist Association. Cross the bridge and defeat the several Chu Jellies that fall from the cliffs. Along a rocky wall is a tree root. Near here is another Golden Bug. Use your boomerang to retrieve it. You got the FEMALE MANTIS. If you keep going on the path, you will dead end at a locked gate. So turn around and cross over the bridge again and go all the way to West Hyrule Field. HYRULE FIELD WEST On the west of this field is a high ledge with some vines. There is a Golden Bug flying around up there. Target it with the boomerang and bring it to you. You got the FEMALE BUTTERFLY. There is a small amphitheater to the south. Near the entrance are some flowers where the MALE BUTTERFLY is. Now to the left of the Castle Town entrance is a ledge with vines. Climb it and on the ledge it the White Wolf. He transports you to the snowy area. After you agree to learn the next Hidden Skill, do the Shield Attack on him. After you successfully do this, he will teach you the Back Slice. To do this, L-Target him then press A and tilt the control stick left or right twice. This will get you around him and you will strike him. You have learned the BACK SLICE. When you return back to Hyrule Field, get on Epona and travel north to North Hyrule Field. HYRULE FIELD NORTH Right as you enter, there is a tree with a bunch of bird enemies known as Guays. Ignore them and grab the Golden Bug next to the tree. You got a MALE STAG BEETLE. There is a shortcut here to get to Lake Hylia. To the west in this field is a bomb rock. Bomb them to reveal several rupees and a new path. Follow it to more bomb rocks. Bomb Arrow them from Epona to be almost at Lake Hylia. But for now, go back to North Hyrule Field. Travel to the very north of the field. You will see a fork here. Go to the right at the fork and follow this path to a bomb rock. You can go in here, but we need another item to continue in this cave. More importantly is the Golden Bug near the bomb rock. Retrieve it with the boomerang. You got the FEMALE STAG BEETLE. Now backtrack to where that fork was at and continue on the path to the very northern tip of the field. You will find a bomb rock. Bomb them and enter to be transported to the Zoras Domain. ZORAS DOMAIN When you arrive here, you will be on a very high ledge. From here, take a left and bomb the wall. Collect the rupees that appear and follow the path to another bomb rock. This rock has to be blown up with a bomb arrow. Now continue up and then go north at the waterfall and into the throne room. In here, light all the torches around the pool to reveal a chest in the water with a Purple Rupee (50). Now exit the throne room back to the domain. Jump down and swim to the east where we first found a Tear of Light. There is a Golden Bug on the wall. Get it with the boomerang to add the MALE DRAGONFLY to your collection. Now get back on land and head south into the Upper Zoras River UPPER ZORAS RIVER Stay on the land and edge the perimeter of the land. You will see a door with a fish on it. Enter. HENAS FISHING HOLE This is a large lake with many of Hyrules most famous and rare fish. This fishing hole as different seasons each time you come in here. Start off by going to the right and follow the path to a small wooden bridge. Stop and the bridge and face the small pool to the east. Fish in here. Eventually you will pull up an EMPTY BOTTLE. After you catch the bottle, go back near the entrance and enter the small cabin to meet Hena. You can take a look at anything with the C-Stick up and Hena will explain what it is. Talk to her and rent a boat for 20 Rupees to get out in the lake and use special lures. Paddle your boat near the central rock that is jutting from the lake and use your fishing rod to snatch the Piece of Heart off the ledge. You now need to reel it in and Hena says you can keep the PIECE OF HEART. Collect three more for another Heart Container. Now return back into Henas Cabin. In the store is the Rollgoal Mini Game. Play it for 5 Rupees. The goal is to roll the ball along the path all the way to the cup at the end. Roll the ball with the control stick and use the C- Stick to change the camera angle. There are eight levels of this. It took me a while to do it so have patience. Once you beat the first eight levels, Hena allows you to fish with the FROG LURE while on the boat and she fills your wallet to the top. Now we can attempt to get the Sinking Lure. This Lure attracts every fish like a magnet. This lure is considered illegal by Hena. To catch it, go out in the boat with Hena and catch a Hylian Pike, Ordon Catfish, and a Hyrule Bass. Keep them to store them in Henas Fish tank in her cabin. Now exit the Fishing Hole and reenter to change seasons. Now go back in the Hole and fish from this direct spot: north of the bridge where you caught the bottle facing north in the water. Fish her and eventually you will catch the SINKING LURE. Dont let Hena see you with it or she will take it. Now exit this place. UPPER ZORAS RIVER Go over to the small house you see in front of you. There is a Golden Bug flying around here. Use your boomerang to capture it. You got the FEMALE DRAGONFLY. Talk to the woman with the afro in front of the walkway. She says they are temporarily closed, so walk like you are going back to Henas Fishing Hole when huge barriers appear and a portal opens up! Three Twilight Messengers appear from the sky. Defeat one by itself first, then defeat the last two with two spin attacks at the same time. After you beat them, Iza is amazed at your courage under pressure. She asks you if you can do her a favor. She lets you in the small cabin and asks you to shoot the rocks with Bomb Arrows. She gives you a Lent Bomb Bag to use right now. Shoot two at the rock wall. Agree to help her with the rest down river. Now you must control a canoe by yourself. The rapids are fast so be careful! A ways down river, Izas assistant meets you. Bomb Arrow the next wall twice and follow the Zora girl. She drops Rupees, but they are mostly Green (1). When you get to the end, you arrive at Lake Hylia. She also gives you a BOMB BAG. She thanks you and tells you to come back soon. LAKE HYLIA Now go over to Fyer and use the cannon to shoot up. Call for Epona and go to Castle Town from the west field. CASTLE TOWN WEST ROAD On this road is an old man. He wants Rupees to donate the general welfare of Hyrule. First, go to the south road. CASTLE TOWN SOUTH ROAD There is a house on this road where a guy is looking in the window. Enter that house and walk up the stairs. Talk to the girl whose name is Princess Agitha. Give her any of the Golden Bugs weve found so far and she gives you a BIG WALLET. This wallet holds 600 Rupees. Every time you bring the princess a bug, she gives you a Purple Rupee (50). Every time you give her a match, she gives you an Orange Rupee (100). This is great if you are ever low on cash. Fill your wallet and return to the old man on the west road. CASTLE TOWN WEST ROAD Donate 1000 Rupees to the man and he will reward you with a PIECE OF HEART. You can get these Rupees from Agitha. After this, you can have some fun in Castle Town. You can visit Chudleys Emporium where this guy is selling just 10 arrows for 2000 Rupees! You cant buy any of this, but you can run around and enjoy yourself. After the fun, go to the southern gate. Exit out. HYRULE FIELD SOUTH Out here, go to the right and there are three trees. The middle one has a Golden Bug near it. Collect it for the FEMALE LADYBUG. Now go to the east side of the field to see a rock pillar. On here is a Golden Bug. Collect it with the boomerang for the MALE LADYBUG. Now reenter Castle Town. CASTLE TOWN SOUTH ROAD Now go over to Telmas Bar to save the Zora boy. When you enter the bar, a strange old man is walking out. He is the doctor and says that a Zora boy is out of his expertise. Telma heard though of a shaman in Kakariko who has tended to Gorons and Zoras. She suggests they go there. The Hylian Soldiers say they will escort them to Kakariko. Telma says good and that that should help with all the dangerous monsters along the way. With those words, the soldiers wimp out and leave the bar. Telma tells them to never come back! But wait! One swordsman remains. It is you. Ilia looks at you and says thanks. She has lost her memory so she doesnt know you or even her own name. You are then in the amphitheater area with Telma. She says to get there you are going to have to get through King Bulbin. You will then be on your horse. You can go ahead of them and go to the Hylian Bridge. GREAT BRIDGE OF HYLIA This will start another battle with King Bulbin. The only thing is that he is guarded with two large shields on both sides. Your sword will do nothing to him. When the battle starts, shoot an arrow right at his belly or head. This will make him go back and forth across the bridge. Dodge him and repeat once more to have him go flying off the bridge. He drops two GATE KEYS. These will help unlock the gates to Kakariko. Now continue south along the bridge with Telma and Ilia and the Zora boy. The next path has several Bulbins shooting arrows at you and the carriage. If one hits the carriage, it will catch on fire and a gauge will appear on the top of the screen. Use your Gale Boomerang to put the fire out in the carriage. If it gets to the end then you have to start all over. Now continue to the locked gate. Get off Epona and open the gate which leads you to South Hyrule Field. HYRULE FIELD SOUTH Stay behind the carriage and use your sword or arrows on the oncoming Bulbin Riders. These guys have fire arrows which can also catch the carriage on fire. Keep these guys off the carriage and keep an eye out for an approaching bird. It will drop a bomb in front of the carriage and make the horse go off course. Which restarts the horse at the beginning of the path. Use arrows or the Gale Boomerang on the bird to defeat him. You will pass the first field and into the gorge. KAKARIKO GORGE Keep a lookout for the birds, Bulbin Riders and a possible carriage fire. Keep the enemies at bay and put out the fire. Keep up the same tactics while making sure the bird doesnt make the horse veer off course. Continue this until you reach the last gate to Kakariko. Get off Epona and unlock the gate for Telma. They are safe. Now you go through to be safely in Kakariko. KAKARIKO VILLAGE Renado has put the boy in the Elde Inn and is taking care of him. The kids are also looking out for him. Telma is very grateful of you and your heroic deeds. She says that there is a group of resistance that comes to her bar. They are trying to do what they can to help the problems of Hyrule. She also says there is a secret passageway to the castle sewers through her bar. Telma runs off towards Renado. Looks like someone is interested in Renado! As you turn away, the ghost of Rutela appears. Go towards her. She leads you to the Graveyard. KAKARIKO GRAVEYARD Follow her straight and climb up the stairs. She makes a stone tablet disappear. Crawl through the new hole and swim across the small pool to a large tombstone. It is the tombstone of the Zora King. She moves it back and says the King made these garments for the hero. This armor is made of Zora Scales. You got the ZORA ARMOR. You can now breath underwater! After she disappears, exit out back to Kakariko. KAKARIKO VILLAGE Go over to Barnes Bombs. Since we have two bomb bags, go to the right side of the counter. You can sell your bombs back to him. Now after you empty a bomb bag, go to the left counter and buy some WATER BOMBS. Buy 15 of them, cause you will need a lot in the next dungeon. Now get Epona and basically backtrack to Lake Hylia and then all the way to North Hyrule Field HYRULE FIELD NORTH Go to the very north tip of the field and enter to go to the Zoras Domain ZORAS DOMAIN Go to the left and head back into the Throne Room. In the pool, put on your Zora Armor and your Iron Boots to sink to the bottom of the pool. The giant rock we used to thaw out Zoras Domain is still under here. Use a Water Bomb on the rock to find a Goron trapped inside. Talk to the freed Goron and he gives you the last BOMB BAG. Now lets double the amount in the bags! Exit the domain and go to Izas Cabin. UPPER ZORAS RIVER Go inside and talk to Iza. She says her mini game is open now since you unblocked the river. The goal is to collect 25 points by shooting large pots with Bomb Arrows. Yellow pots are worth 1 point. Red pots are worth 2 points. If you hit the sides of the walls or any obstacle in the river, you lose 1 point. Collect a total of 25 to get the GIANT BOMB BAG. This doubles the amount of bombs each bag can hold. You can now hold 60 regular bombs and 30 Water Bombs. You will be in Lake Hylia when the mini game is over. LAKE HYLIA Now we can go to the Lakebed Temple! The location of the temple is located by a blue dot on your map. Swim to it, and when you are there, put on your Iron Boots and Zora Armor to sink all the way to the very bottom of the deep lake. The entrance is firmly sealed with a bomb rock. To break it, place a Water Bomb on the rocky ground below the rock. This will release a jet of bubbles and air. Put a Water Bomb in the current to have the bomb go floating up to land in front of the rock. It will blow up. Now take off your Iron Boots and swim in the tunnel.
