Hyrule Collection Quest 3 [Wlk10]

Before heading to Hyrule Castle, let's grab a few things, mainly Gold
Skulltulas.  First, make sure it's night here in Zora's Fountain, then head on 
top of the log sticking out of the water.  You should find a Gold Skulltula on 
the wall across from the log.  Remember to use the Boomerang for far away Gold 
Skulltulas. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 34 out of 100) Now, head back to Kokiri Forest.  
To get there really fast, exit Zora's Domain back to Zora's River.  Once you 
exit, see the pool of water to the left?  Head to it and dive down to the 
bottom, going through the entrance here.  This is a warp over to Lost Woods. 
Now simply take a wrong turn to end up in the Forest.  Once here, head back 
inside the Great Deku Tree.  Use Farore's Wind to create a warp here, then fall
down the center hole, then climb up onto the block, and head through the 
crawlspace up here.  On the other side, find the bombable wall behind a Deku 
Baba, bomb it, and you'll find a Gold Skulltula behind it.  Kill it and use the 
Boomerang to retrieve the token. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 35 out of 100) Head back to 
Kokiri Forest, using Farore's Wind again to warp back to the Deku Tree 
entrance.  Plant a Magic Bean on the plot of dirt by the Shop, then head back 
to Lost Woods.

Once you enter, head left until you find another plot of dirt.  Plant a Magic
Bean here.  Now, head back to the Lost Woods entrance, then head right, left, 
right, left, then left again and plant a Magic Bean on this plot of dirt behind 
the Business Scrub.  Now head back to Hyrule Field from Kokiri Forest.  Head to
Kakariko Village, but before you enter, notice the tree near the castle walls. 
Plant a bomb there to make a Secret Cave appear.  Drop down, kill the 
Skulltula, and kill the Gold Skulltula here with the Boomerang. (GOLD 
SKULLTULAS: 36 out of 100) Enter Kakariko Village during the night.  Head 
inside the Skulltula House and get the next prize, the Giant's Wallet, which 
can carry 500 Rupees.  Great!  Next, head to the Graveyard.  Head to the far 
end and look on the south wall.  There's another Gold Skulltula here.  It's 
high up, so you know what item you need. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 37 out of 100) 
Before exiting, plant a Magic Bean on the plot of dirt here.  Next head to 
Death Mountain Trail and deposit a Magic Bean on the plot of dirt near the 
entrance to Dodongo's Cavern.  After that, head inside the Cavern.

Get to the second floor using the high-rise platform.  From there, head over to
the staircase room.  Once you are there, you'll notice the staircase is back 
up.  Climb up the left side and you'll reach an alcove with a Gold Skulltula. 
(GOLD SKULLTULAS: 38 out of 100) Now, start heading toward Hyrule Castle.  A 
scene will show Zelda and Impa escaping by way of riding a white horse, and 
Ganondorf on his black stallion follows.  Link will try to stop Ganondorf, but 
he almost kills Link.  After the scene is over, get into the moat and you'll 
see the Ocarina of Time Zelda threw.  After grabbing it, a scene will show 
Zelda telepathically teaching Link the Song of Time to open up the Temple of 
Time.  After everything is over, head to Lon Lon Ranch.  We'll get to the 
Temple of Time soon, but we're getting some other stuff.

Once in the ranch, (make sure it's night) look up at the left building.
There's a Gold Skulltula up high.  Use the Boomerang. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 39 out 
of 100) Now head toward the silo.  The wall to the right has another Gold 
Skulltula. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 40 out of 100) Now exit the ranch.  Look around 
the ranch, or wait at one spot, to see a man running around.  Remember the 
Bunny Hood?  This guy wants it, and he'll pay as much money to you as you can 
carry to get it.  Once you sell it to him, head over to Gerudo Valley.  The 
entrance is the area with brown dirt.  Before entering, plant a bomb in the 
middle of the circle of stones near the entrance.  Drop inside after opening 
this Secret Cave.  Now use Din's Fire to burn all the cobwebs off, and head 
into the corridor with a cow.  There's another Gold Skulltula here. (GOLD 
SKULLTULAS: 41 out of 100) Exit the cave, and enter Gerudo Valley during the 
night.  As you can see, the Gerudo are all female, and they won't let Link 
through.  No worries, we're not interested in entering their fortress yet.
For now, head forward to the wooden plank.  To the right, on the wall, is 
another Gold Skulltula. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 42 out of 100) Now grab the Cucco, 
and drop down to the left of the bridge.  You see the ledge with the crate? 
Float down there and break it to reveal a Piece of Heart. (HEART PIECES: 16 out 
of 36) Another full heart!  Now see the long ledge below?  Get down there, 
there should be a Gerudo, a cow, and a plot of dirt here.  Make sure you drop 
off the Cucco someplace where you can grab it. (IE, don't let it fall into the 
river) Now drop some bugs onto the plot of dirt (grabbing another if possible) 
and another Gold Skulltula will pop out. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 43 out of 100) Plant 
a Magic Bean on the same plot of dirt.

Now head toward the waterfall.  If you look behind it, you'll see a ladder
extending from the water.  Use the Cucco you used to get down here in the first 
place to get to this ladder.  Climb the ladder and you'll find a hidden alcove 
with another Piece of Heart inside. (HEART PIECES: 17 out of 36) After grabbing 
this, let the currents of the river carry you out of this valley and into Lake 
Hylia.  Once you do, head to shore, make sure it's night, and you'll see yet 
another Gold Skulltula on the wall of the Laboratory. (GOLD SKULLTULAS: 44 out 
of 100) Alright, now we can head over to the Happy Mask Shop at Hyrule Market 
and pay the owner the Rupees needed for that Bunny Hood.  Now you've sold all 
the masks!  All the masks you've sold, plus four new ones, are free to borrow, 
no need to pay anything.  The new masks are:

- Goron Mask: Fool many Gorons by wearing this mask!

- Zora Mask: A mask to make you look like a Zora. Try talking to Ruto with
this!

- Gerudo Mask: A mask that resembles a Gerudo from the Gerudo tribe. Try
talking to all the men in Hyrule for weird surprises!

- Mask of Truth: Allows you to read people's minds, and you are also able to
talk to Gossip Stones.

The owner automatically gives you the Mask of Truth, which we need for one last
upgrade for a while.  Head over to Kakariko Village and gain your next prize at
the Skulltula House, which is a measly bunch of Bombchus.  At least they 
could've thought of a better prize!  Anyway...after this, head back to Zora's 
River.  Remember the frogs?  Head over there and play the Song of Time to 
enlarge the last frog and get.....wait for it.....another Purple Rupee.  You 
were expecting something big, eh?  We'll come back here later once we learn yet 
another song.  Now, head to Lost Woods using the warp here in Zora's River. 
Once you enter, head right, then left and you'll enter that same place with 
high grass.  Head back down into the Forest Stage.  Wear the Mask of Truth and 
find the leader and he'll give you a Deku Nut Upgrade.  You can now carry 40 
Deku Nuts.  This is the last upgrade you'll be getting in a while, so head all 
the way back to Hyrule Castle.

Near the Happy Mask Shop is the Temple of Time to the right of it.  Head there.
Along the way you'll see some Gossip Stones.  Talk to them with the Mask of
Truth if you wish, but head into the Temple all the same.  Head to the 
pedestal, stand on the carpet, and play the Song of Time.  While the song is 
playing, the Spiritual Stones will go into their slots, and eventually the door 
ahead will open.  Head through and you'll find the Master Sword on a pedestal. 
Before pulling it, make sure you have the Hylian Shield equipped...the trials 
ahead are tougher and will require a larger and stronger shield.

After Link pulls the Master Sword, a strange sequence occurs.  As the sage in
front of you explains, the moment Link pulled the Master Sword, his soul was 
sealed away in the Chamber of Sages for 7 years because he was not old enough 
to be the Hero of Time and to wield the Master Sword yet.  During the 7 years, 
Ganondorf entered the Sacred Realm and obtained the Triforce of Power, and with 
it, was able to take over Hyrule, turning it into hell on earth.  Link is now 
grown into a teen, but he's not yet ready to face Ganondorf yet.  He must 
rescue the five other sages in the temples throughout Hyrule and obtain their 
power in order to defeat Ganondorf.  Rauru will now give you the Light 
Medallion.  The power of each sage is held in their own Medallion.  Let's get 
started.  It seems the Temple of Time hasn't changed...someone's behind you!  
Oh, wait, this is a Shiekah like Impa.  He'll explain to you what you need to 
do to defeat Ganondorf.  His name is Shiek.  Quite the original name, eh?  
Anyway, head out of the Temple.
