-Part 6: Walking on Sacred Ground [par6]
~Hyrule Castle Town~
You can go back to Telma's Bar again to immediately further the plot, but
there are just a couple of Heart Pieces we can get, one with the Ball and
Chain. I'll cover those now.
Go back to Hyrule Castle Town and go directly north of Hyrule Castle. In the
rock area in the extreme north of Hyrule Field, you will find a rock in a
wall. Bomb it to enter a cave, then use your Ball and Chain to crack open the
ice blocking your path inside. Solve three block-pushing puzzles in a row to
gain another HEART PIECE!
Warp back to the top of Snowpeak and head back to that tree to meet the yetis
again. They're so happy to see you, they'll challenge you to a snowboarding
match to celebrate! Race the husband, then the wife, and you get a HEART PIECE
once you beat them both.
~Hyrule Castle Town~
Once you're done with all that, head back to Telma's Bar and talk with the
gang again. You'll quickly learn that Rusl has left to look for the Sacred
grove back in Faron Woods! Leave and warp to the North Faron Woods.
~North Faron Woods~
go slightly north to the red mark on your map and talk to Rusl. He'll outline
his plan, so agree to cross the gorge and find this "ancient power" he's
talking about. Looks like we're going to be returning to the Sacred Grove!
Rusl will summon the Golden Chicken of Destiny to assist you! Use the Chicken
to glide from platform to platform instead of using the Long Jump like last
time. Once you cross the platforms and get to the rotating bridge, put down
the chicken and use your Gale Boomerang to align the bridge. Rotate it again
to continue forth, and time a jump past the two swinging logs. Enter the
Sacred Grove again.
The Skull Kid will appear in here again, so destroy the Puppets he summons and
go after him. Keep running through the forest until you hear him playing his
horn. Strike him and he will run again, so keep following him to the end. If
he appears out of sword range, use your bow. Once you get to the end, you will
have to "fight" him again. Since you're not stuck in wolf form this time, fire
arrows at him whenever he appears. Once he gives up, he'll open an alternate
path further into the grove. Take it.
Once you arrive here, push the block in front of you down into the gap. Jump
down after it and continue north up to where you found the Master Sword
Once you jump down after the block, look up into a dark corner of the wall.
Use your Clawshot or Gale Boomerang to get the MALE SNAIL from its hiding
Once you arrive at the exact spot where you found the Master Sword, press A to
place it back in the pedestal. Once you do, a door will open back where you
entered the area. Once you leave, five Twilight monsters will be dropped off
for you to deal with. You know the drill. Once they're gone, climb back up and
enter the door that was previously blocked off by a statue. Open it for a
strange but cool black and white effect.
Once you're in... does the music sound familiar? It's the Freaking Temple of
Freaking Time!!! Go north to the pedestal and press A to strike your sword
into the Pedestal here. A stairway of light will form, go up it to enter the
Once you go through the doors, check the left side at the bottom of the
stairs. The FEMALE SNAIL will be resting there. Grab it before you go into the
dungeon. How a snail managed to get through a magically concealed door to the
Temple of Time is beyond me, though.
