The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Back to Skyloft

Vincent Lau


Back in the sky, I recommend you first hunt down and open the chests activated by the three Goddess Cubes you struck in recent times. The locations are on the map, by the way, but here is a quick listing anyways.

Treasure Chest 1

(1 of 2) Head south-east, towards Pumpkin Landing.

Head south-east, towards Pumpkin Landing. (left), Wahey, an upgrade for your Adventure Pouch. (right)

The first one you struck is to the southeast of Skyloft, on Pumpkin Landing. The chest yields another Adventure Pouch Slot.

Treasure Chest 2

(1 of 2) Sky-dive to this small island south from Skyloft.

Sky-dive to this small island south from Skyloft. (left), Yum, a Piece of Heart. (right)

The second chest is to the south of Skyloft on a small island. This one contains Heart Piece 11.

Treasure Chest 3

(1 of 2) This one’s also at Pumpkin Landing, but you need to land on the roof first.

This one’s also at Pumpkin Landing, but you need to land on the roof first. (left), We hope you upgraded your wallet beforehand. (right)

The third chest is also on Pumpkin Landing, above the entrance. You’ll need to land on the building’s roof to reach it. It contains a legendary Gold Rupee, worth 300 Rupees. Lucky you! (If you didn’t max out your wallet.) Afterwards, head back to Skyloft.


(1 of 2) First things first, let’s place the Ruby Tablet where it belongs.

First things first, let’s place the Ruby Tablet where it belongs. (left), This smells like the beginning of a long sidequest. (right)

Back home, dive off near the Statue of the Goddess and go through the doorway at the base. In this room, insert the Ruby Tablet into the altar to create a fiery red beam of light, rising from the surface below to indicate the volcanic Eldin Volcano region.

Okay, we’re still in Skyloft aren’t we? Head down to the Bazaar to buy an Iron Shield and some Potion refills if you need to. Buy anything else you’ll think you’ll need.

Once you’re done, leave Skyloft on your Loftwing and fly north, dropping down into the red beam of light.

Long ago, on a dark day, the earth cracked and evil forces rushed out of the fissure. These forces mercilessly attacked the people of the earth, slaughtering them and destroying their land. They did this in search of the ultimate power, a power capable of granting any wishes of its holder. This power, passed down from the gods of old, was guarded by Her Grace, the goddess of the land. The goddess gathered the surviving humans on a piece of earth and sent it skyward, beyond the clouds. With the humans safe, the goddess joined the land dwellers and fought the evil forces in a war of unmatched scale and ferocity. They eventually sealed the evil forces away, restoring peace to the surface. However, the humans remained in Skyloft, as Hylia knew that the seal on the evil would not hold forever.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft, who, after a strange dream, sets out on a journey to save his beloved home.
