-Part 7: City in the Sky: Beautiful, Breezy, UNPLEASANT! [par7]
You emerge back in here after beating the Temple of Time. As usual, to
immediately get your next objective, you can head back to Telma's Bar, but
there is ONE more thing we can get here.
<3Heart Piece!!! <3
When you get to the steps leading out of the Temple of Time area, look to the
sides of the steps. There are two owl-like statues, one on each side of the
steps. Use your Dominion Rod to remove the one on the right from its alcove.
Go inside for a HEART PIECE!
As soon as you leave the Temple of Time, you'll meet Ooccoo again. She'll talk
to you about returning to the sky and how the Dominion rod has lost is power,
blah blah blah... so the next temple is in the sk- DOMINION ROD LOST ITS
POWER?!?!? WHAT??? You're going to have to make sense of this anyway, so go
back to Hyrule Castle town.
~Hyrule Castle Town~
As you enter, you'll get an important letter from the Postman. Looks like
Renado has something important to tell you about Ilia's memory... we'll get
there in a bit. For now, go back to Telma's Bar. Telma will tell you that Shad
is back in Kakariko Village too, so you'll have to go back there anyway.
Go into Renado's house, and you'll see Chief Darbus, Cor Goron, Renado, and
Ilia. Talk to Renado and he'll update you. Apparently, Shad is in the basement
looking for clues about the city in the sky. He also mentions that Ilia knew
something about a "rod of the heavens" before she lost her memory. Could it be
the Dominion Rod? He will give you a letter to show to Telma in order to start
this search. Before you leave, go downstairs and talk to Shad. You'll learn
about the possibility that the "rod of the heavens", Ilia's memory, and those
strange statues all have something in common... In any case, leave for Hyrule
Castle Town again.
~Hyrule Castle Town~
Go back to Telma's Bar and show her the letter. She'll suggest you go see the
doctor on the west side of town. She'll also give you an INVOICE for the
doctor's tab at the bar. Go to the west side of the town and talk to the
doctor. Show him the Invoice to scare him into submission. He'll say something
about a wooden statue that Ilia had... bastard wanted to sell it! He mentions
he spilled medicine on it, and it got stolen after that. He will then go back
to his work. Check in the back of his office for a moveable crate. Push it
back to find an odd green cloud. Turn into a wolf(don't worry, the doctor
won't notice) and learn the MEDICINE SCENT. Follow it outside and through
town, not worrying at all about the mass panic in the streets caused by a wolf
and a little monkey-like freak such as Midna! Once you get to the end of the
scent trail, you'll find Louise the cat. Talk to her and she'll tell you
exactly what happened to the wooden statue. Some evil skeleton-like dogs took
it, and they lurk outside of Hyrule Castle Town, to the south. But only at
night. Run around town to cause more terror and get a good laugh, then when
you're done, leave town to the south.
Once you're south of town, wait until night time. Once night rolls around,
you'll be attacked by the large pack of skeleton dogs that Louise told you
about. Kill them all and you'll get Ilia's WOODEN STATUE back. You know what
to do with this!
Go back to Renado's house and show the statue to Ilia. She will get a little
bit of her memory back, but she won't remember where she was imprisoned. Cor
Goron, however, will! He tells you about the Hidden Village north of the
Bridge of Eldin. The entrance was blocked by a rockslide a while back, but
Darbus will volunteer his services to clear out the blockage. Cor Goron will
mark the location of the Hidden Village on your map, so call Epona and go
Go north of Kakariko to the Bridge of Eldin, and continue past that until you
get to the red mark on your Map. The tunnel will be open, so go on in.
You'll quickly see Darbus already at work in here, and he'll finish up as you
go through the tunnel. Before he leaves, Darbus tells you about a group of
Moblins that have overrun this ghost town, and you have to kill them all to
save whoever's left in here! Looks like we got ourselves a showdown!!! Enjoy
the best background music in the game as you on a psychopathic Moblin killing
You have to kill them before they spot you, so whip out your Bow and Hawkeye,
and snipe down as many Moblins as you can see from close to the entrance. You
should be able to get seven or so of them form the entrance. Some of them are
wandering the street, but many are up on balconies and such. Look through the
windows, too! You CAN shoot an arrow through the windows! Just keep a sharp
eye, and once you can't see any more, head on through the village. This part
isn't difficult as Darbus would have you believe, so just go through the
village and check inside and behind the houses and you should find and kill
them all with little difficulty. Remember, you can kill them even if you only
hit them in the arm, so look very carefully.
Once they're all dead, you'll meet Impaz, the sweet old lady who is the sole
resident of this village. After some conversation, she'll give you ILIA'S
CHARM to take back to her. Show Impaz the Dominion Rod before you go, and
she'll also give you the ANCIENT SKY BOOK. For now, you can head back to
Kakariko Village, but there are some things to get here first.
0o Howl Stone!!! o0
Check behind the houses on the west side of the Hidden Village for the last
HOWL STONE. Copy the song and your main man the Golden Wolf will appear right
in front of Hyrule Castle. You can go to him now, but better to get this next
Heart Piece first.
<3Heart Piece!!! <3
Once you've shown Impaz the Dominion Rod, talk to the chicken in the west side
of the village(while as a wolf, of course). He'll challenge you to a contest
where you have to talk to all the cats in town- all twenty of them. This is
not difficult at all, but keep an eye out for places where you can Clawshot to
balconies- this is the only way to get to some of them. Once you find all
twenty, go back and talk to the chicken to receive a HEART PIECE!
0o Golden Wolf!!! o0
Go back to Hyrule Castle Town and go right to the front of the castle- the
Golden Wolf will be waiting for you. He teaches you the last technique: the
GREAT SPIN! It works just like a normal Spin Attack, but the power of the
attack is greatly increased when your life meter is completely full.
Congratulations, you now have all seven Hidden Skills! The Wolf leaves you for
the last time... but how he referred to Link... could he really be...?!
Go back to Ilia and show her the charm. She will then remember everything, and
give the charm back to you as the HORSE CALL. It's kind of obsolete now
because of those warp portals, but sure! Why not? Now we still have business
with Shad. Go back downstairs and show him the Ancient Sky Book. He'll try
reading the book, but nothing will happen... right away. But he has a clue: he
marks off the owl statues in the overworld on your map. He will then leave,
but that writing DID do something: your Dominion Rod will get its power back!
We gotta go check out those statues! Check your map for the locations, then
call Epona and off we go!
The first statue is in Kakariko Gorge. Once you get to the it, bring it to
life and move it out of its spot. You'll see a glowing spot where it was, step
on it to find a "sky character". One letter will be added to that Ancient Sky
Book. After finding them all, you have to bring the book back to Shad. While
you're still here, maneuver the owl statue so you can pass across the strip of
land above and get a chest with 100 rupees. I suggest you take them, we'll
need a lot of money in a little while.
The next statue is, of course, in Faron Woods. As before, check your map in
the Faron Province, and you'll see it's not too far from Coro's Lantern shop.
You'll have to bomb a rock out of the way, though. Move the owl statue out of
the way and get another sky character.
You can put the owl statue in Faron Woods to good use. Guide into the shallow
hole nearby, then climb onto the rock. Do a small Long Jump series, then
follow the path at the end to a HEART PIECE.
The next owl statue is not far off from the Gerudo Mesa where you appear when
you warp. Head a bit west for the owl statue and a small bit of ruins. Bring
the statue down, then use it to get to the next sky character. You can also
get 100 rupees here, take them if you have room in your wallet.
The next two owl statues aren't too far off from each other. Warp to Hyrule
Castle and go south to find another one. You'll find it amongst some stone
ruins. Bring it down and use it as a makeshift platform for both another sky
character and 100 rupees.
The next one is at the north end of the Great Bridge of Hylia. Position it
under the hanging ivy, and Clawshot on top of it to reach the next sky
character. You can also get another 100 rupees here if you need it.
For the last one, warp to the Bridge of Eldin. Go to the north end, and
displace the owl statue there to find the last sky character! The book is now
complete, so go back to Kakariko Village and show it to Shad.
<3 Heart Piece!!! <3
You can still use the last owl statue on the Bridge of Eldin, however. Bring
it all the way to the south end of the bridge and use it as a platform to
reach a HEART PIECE at the top!
go to the basement of Renado's house and show the Ancient Sky Book to Shad.
He'll repeat the same passage from it, and the statue in front of you will be
able to be moved now. Get it out of the way, then check the room behind it to
find the ancient Sky Cannon. Go towards it and Midna will suggest warping it
out of here... but Shad is in there with you. Talk to him and he'll leave you
to work. Who do we know who's a cannon expert...? Warp the cannon to Lake
Go to Fyer's cabin in the middle of the lake. Talk to him for a special
repairs option, and cough up 300 rupees for repairs(that's why I told you to
get those chests earlier). After a quick fixing montage, it'll be good as new!
Clawshot into the back to load yourself into it, and you'll be shot up to...
