(1 of 2) The Ancient Cistern is filled with water, but you don’t need to raise and lower the water levels. Phew!

The Ancient Cistern is filled with water, but you don’t need to raise and lower the water levels. Phew! (left), Instead, you’ll be opening water valves to release water jets that push you up. (right)

The Ancient Cistern is the fourth dungeon in the game. Located at the back of Lake Floria, it’s essentially the “water temple” of the game, although it’s not nearly as frustrating to navigate as earlier ones.

Within, the first of the Sacred Flames can be found. This is also where Link can get his grubby mitts on the Whip… whiplash sound
