Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Fyrus. The boss of the Goron Mines, Fyrus, is a Goron known as a Twilit Igniter. This leader of the Gorons was overtaken by the darkness, and it's up to Link to fight the chained and flaming beast to save the Eldin Province. Link must use the chains around Fyrus' legs to trip the creature and sword him. After Link finishes his adventure through Death Mountain, he can continue to the north and Lake Hylia.
Renado. When Link and Midna head to Hyrule Field, their next destination is Kakariko Village and Eldin province to the west. It's covered in twilight as well. Link must transform again and use the Vessel of Light bestowed upon him by the spirit of Eldin to return the area to its normal state. In this village, Link will also find the missing children of Ordon Village in the hands of Renado, the village shaman. After the area is back to normal, they will all reunite.
Diababa. In the final chamber within the depths of the Forest Temple, Link must defeat Diababa, a plant monster consisting of two large Deku Babas and a central unit. Link can hold bombs out to these two plants to have them explode, but when the third component comes along, this idea is thrown out. With the help of the level's sub-boss, Link can continue bombing the two heads. The third piece with the eye is too far for the bombs, so Link must use the Gale Boomerang to hit both the bomb held by the baboon and the monster. After the battle, Link gets his first Heart Container.
Gale Boomerang. Link must assist the monkeys of the forest by freeing them in the temple and saving their leader. Their leader will be controlled by an evil bug and will fight Link about half-way through the temple. By knocking the totem poles he stands on while he throws the Boomerang he holds, Link can knock him to the ground and attack him with his sword. After the battle, the Gale Boomerang will be added to the inventory, and it can control the spinnable platforms throughout the temple.
Vessel of Light. When Link and Midna re-enter the twilight, they will realize that they need to save the forest spirit of Faron by collecting Tears of Light and ridding the area of twilight before they can move on. Once all Tears are collected, Link will return to his normal form (with a new green tunic) and will need to travel through the woods once again to reach the Forest Temple. Link will also learn the first of his seven hidden skills along the way.
Midna. During Link's final day in the village, he will need to talk to Ilia in the Ordon Woods spring. At this time, Ilia and Colin will be captured by dark foes and Link will need to enter the Twilight now covering Faron Woods to save them. When Link is pulled into this, he transforms into a wolf and wakes up in a prison cell with Midna looking over him. With Midna's assistance, they make their way through a destroyed Hyrule Castle to Princess Zelda in the highest tower. When Link and Midna nearly get caught by guards, they teleport to Ordon Woods where they must obtain the Ordon Shield and a second shield for their journey through the twilight.
Rusl. Rusl feels that Link should explore Hyrule to discover adventure outside of the village and he delivers the Wooden Sword to Link's house following his errands in Ordon Village. After a tutorial with Link's friends everyone will chase a monkey through the Ordon province to the Faron Woods. Talo will be ahead of the group and Link must search for him in the dense forest. Along the way, Link needs to claim his Oil Lantern to navigate dark caves.
Cat. Following a brief round-up of goats at the Ordon Ranch, Link will be able to complete some errands in Ordon Village to earn money for his Slingshot, the first major weapon of the game. Before Link can buy this though, he needs to return the shop owner's cat to the shop. Evidently, the cat ate his owner's fish and was shooed out of the house for punishment. To return the cat, Link must call a hawk to retrieve a cradle. Once Link returns this to its owner, he can obtain the Fishing Pole, which can catch a fish for the cat. The cat will bring it back to its owner and be rewarded. Link can now claim the weapon and test it outside his house. Link also gets a Bottle of Milk as a reward.
Spinner. When you reach the Death Sword in the Arbiter's Grounds, you will be able to duel the mini-boss for your newest item, the Spinner, which will allow you to float over large (possibly dangerous areas) and follow pre-made tracks along walls and rock faces. This dungeon is rather large and spacious what with its uninhabited rooms and cathedral-like ceilings, but don't get too comfortable! You'll need to make your way to the very end at the top of the dungeon where the evil Stallord awaits your arrival. Zant will bring power to the beast and you'll need to make use of your Spinner (and your new sword). Simply disalign the creature's spine and you'll make short work of it. For the second portion of the battle, Stallord's head will cause trouble. Once again jump on the Spinner, jump up the new tower that has formed in the arena, avoid obstacles, and leap at the creature when the time is right. After the battle, you'll ascend once more and reach the Mirror Chamber, where the rest of your journey will unfold.
Fyer. When you're ready to continue the quest (and why would you yet? You have tons of Poes to defeat!) you can head to Telma's Bar and be directed to a man named Auru standing atop a pinnacle overlooking Lake Hylia. This man will hear of your journey and give you a non-stop ticket for a flight to Gerudo Mesa to the east. The only catch: your flight will be provided by Fyer and his cannon in the middle of Lake Hylia. Once you make your landing, regain your composure and begin slicing your way through Moldorms to the Arbiter's Grounds.
Sacred Grove. After speaking with Zelda, you will need to proceed to the entrance of the Forest Temple where a monkey will lead the way to the entrance of the Sacred Woods. Once there, you will need to chase the elusive Skull Kid around the winding paths of the forest, often retracing your steps along the way. All the while, you'll be pursued by odd puppets that will drop from the trees to attack you. After a battle with the Skull Kid in a clearing, you'll continue to the Sacred Grove where you will need to complete a puzzle set by the guardians of the Master Sword in order to claim the ultimate prize amongst the ruins of the Temple of Time.
Jovani. After the third dungeon, you need to meet with Zelda, as you now have all three Fused Shadow pieces. To do this, transform into a wolf and head to Hyrule Castle Town. Once you reach Telma's Bar, Louise the cat will assist you in reaching the upper half of the bar and the rafters. This path will take you into Jovani's house-turned-pile-of-treasure. Jovani will introduce himself and plea that you capture the souls of sixty Poes around Hyrule to free himself and his cat, Gengle. After this, a secret entrance will let you into the castle and Zelda will give up her remaining powers to give strength to Midna and Link.
Clawshot. Once you claim the Water Bombs from Barnes in Kakariko Village, you'll be ready to enter the Lakebed Temple, so dive into Lake Hylia, blast away, and swim on in. This temple is home to many waterlogged caverns as well as one large room with levers that will shift water throughout the temple. Once two reservoir towers have been opened, you will be able to head into the boss room containing the Twilit Aquatic Morpheel. Use your Clawshot to the best of your ability and keep the Zora Armor nearby to secure a win. After the battle, Midna will take you to Lanyaru's spring...where Zant is waiting.
Kakariko Village. The next step on the quest for dungeon #3 is returning to Hyrule Castle Town to Ilia, Telma, and the sickened Prince Ralis and escorting them along the southern half of Hyrule Field to Kakariko Village. This process is quite intense as you will need to fight the King Bulblin once again on the Great Hylian Bridge and through the southern portion of the field. When the caravan reaches Kakariko Village, Prince Ralis will get better in the care of Renado, and Rutela will give you on the way to the Zora Armor within Kakariko Graveyard.
Death Mountain. When you arrive at Zora's Domain, it'll be covered in ice. Make your way to the Zora throne room and claim your teleportation rights, then warp to Death Mountain to pick up a flaming rock. This will basically destroy the ice in Zora's Domain and it'll allow you to finish the quest for the Twilit Bloat, a large creature in Lake Hylia. This thing is a rather odd boss because it's larger than your normal Twilit Parasites. Once it's defeated though, you'll be able to restore Lanyaru Province and Hyrule Castle Town to normality. Of course, you still won't be able to reach the third dungeon just yet.
Telma's Bar. As you continue to the eastern end of Hyrule Field, the scent will lead you to Telma's Bar in Hyrule Castle Town. Here, you can find Ilia, but because of the twilight, she won't be able to see you. After this, if you continue to the Great Hylian Bridge, you will be forced off of it. By jumping off the side into Lake Hylia, you will survive a terrible fate. Of course, once you arrive at Lanayru's spring, you'll be forced to fill another Vessel of Light, but still, it'll get you one step closer to the third dungeon. To find the Twilit Parasites involved, you'll need to scour Lake Hylia, a large cavern system, Zora's River, and Zora's Domain.
Lanayru. The Lanayru Province covers most of the northern areas of Hyrule and it contains the third dungeon of the game among other things. After leaving Eldin Province via the Bridge of Eldin, you'll be trapped here as a wolf, forced to make your way around Hyrule following Ilia's Scent. Lanayru Province includes Lake Hylia, the rivers around it, and Zora's Domain. It's easily one of the larger provinces.
Malo. Malo, the youngest Ordonian, takes over the abandoned shop in the Village and sells you some useful items (even before you venture to the Goron Mines). The Hawkeye is not necessary if you want to complete the game, but it's a handy tool that allows you to gain better sight when using your newly acquired Hero's Bow. Put it to good use immediately and complete a mini-game in Kakariko Village for a Piece of Heart!
Dragon. The only thing you'll need to defeat this dragon is the double clawshots and your sword. Like most other bosses he has two phases, the first you must use the clawshot on his tail and then put on the iron boots, or vice versa, then you must use the clawshot on his back and attack his weak spot with your sword. After defeating this dragon you get the final piece of the Mirror of Twilight.
Shield. This dragon has a shield which you must use the clawshot on to pull the monster towards you. After defeating it you get another clawshot, so you then have the double clawshots.
Ice Mass. Yeta is Yeto's wife and she is actually very kind, but as she looks in the shard of the Mirror of Twilight she becomes corrupted and attacks you. All you have to do to beat her is to hit her with the ball and chain. After defeating her you get the second shard of the Mirror of Twilight.
Tail. This monster uses the ball and chain to attack you. As you are in an enclosed space, you must use the clawshot to get behind the monster so you don't get attacked by the ball and chain. The ball and chain will then be used to break ice and hit various other objects.
Stallord. Stallord is just a skeleton when you first enter the room, but Zant decides that he is going to bring him back to life so you can fight him. After defeating Stallord the pathway to the mirror chamber is opened. You will see a short scene there leading you on your next quest.
Eye. This guy is named Morpheel, and like the Diababa, this boss has two phases. In both phases you must use the clawshot on his eye and then attack it. The first phase Morpheel has the eye in one of his tentacles, but the second phase it's on his back.
Iron Boots. This rather large Goron is guarding the Hero's Bow and will attack you when you try to get it. He will jump on to the magnetic platform you are on and make it float on the lava. So to stay on you need to use the Iron Boots. Here some of your sumo skills will come in handy, you will need to throw the Goron into the lava to damage him.
Diababa. This boss has two phases, one is just two plants. When you kill the two plants with the bomb bugs, then Diababa emerges and the baboon comes to help. Beware of the water that Diababa lives in, it will hurt you if you step on it. An interesting little tidbit is that if you go back the water will be clean and you can swim in it, but if you dive to far down it will have the same effect as if you fell down a gorge, from the sky, etc.
Gale Boomerang. This baboon, has caused trouble through the Forest Temple and when you finally fight him, be ready to have a boomerang thrown at you. It is the Gale Boomerang and once you defeat him, the parasite that was on the monkey dies and the baboon returns to his normal self and you also gain the Gale Boomerang. So you now get to go off and rescue more monkeys!
Three. The Bombling, the Horse Call, and the Hawkeye aren't required at all. The Bombling helps for enemies, although there is no enemy in the game that cannot be defeated without it. The Horse Call makes traveling MUCH quicker, but Link can traverse all areas without Epona. And in the rare events where Epona IS necessary, she appears automatically for Link without being called (such as the carriage escort from Castle Town to Kakariko). The Hawkeye helps for accuracy of the bow for far-off targets, but keeping a steady finger makes it possible to shoot all far-off targets.
|To hurt Ganondorf while on the horseback part of the battle, does Link have to fire a light arrow bestowed by the spirits to stun him, and then slash him?||The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
No. It is actually Zelda who must fire the arrows. Despite Ganondorf's crippled-looking state, he recovers after just one slash from Link's sword. After four or five hits, Ganondorf falls off of his horse and the duel between him and Link commences. Even though Link has clearly given him a harsh beating by this point, he still has the nerve to conjure a hearty laugh. This is where all of those secret lost techniques come in really handy.
Cave of Ordeals. After replacing the broken bridge from Hyrule Field in the Eldin Province, the entrance to the pit of trials is unearthed, literally. After fifty levels of increasingly difficult enemies and scarce health items, Link gets the ultimate reward which is the Fairy's Tears, which heal Link completely as well as boost his attack power for a short period of time. This item can be refilled at any spirit's spring from that point on.
Fado's house. Fado is at the ranch during the day, and therefore keeps his house locked, and is asleep at night so his house is still locked.
Link is required to go to Mayor Bo's house to learn to wrestle with the Gorons, although he isn't able to at the beginning of the game. He is also required to go to Rusl and Uli's house as a wolf so he can take the Ordon sword, and he's required to go to Sera's Sundries (which is also her house) to buy the slingshot.
