To the Boss Room

(1 of 2) Go in-between the broken bridge you jumped across earlier.

Go in-between the broken bridge you jumped across earlier. (left), Leave no stone (or treasure chest) unturned! (right)

Return to the central platform and hop onto the stone ball. Roll around the west side of the central platform. Continue to the northbound bridge and roll into the switch (the protrusion) to cause one platform to rise a bit. Also be sure to check the northwestern isle - it has some Rupee-yielding dig areas and a random-treasure treasure chest.

Afterwards, go to the east-central wall of the room. Along this area, you should be able to see a crack in the wall. Throw two Bombs at it to create a hole and a new path. Follow the path for a bit - along the way, be sure to stop at the small room for a Bomb refill.

(1 of 2) Send your Beetle through this corridor.

Send your Beetle through this corridor. (left), Then aim for the rope at the back of the gate. (right)

Further along, you’ll be blocked by a large platform. Turn around and look around for a crack in the wall - throw two Bombs at it to create a new path and a fight with a Fire Keese swarm. Continue along the new path to get around the middle platform. Continue forward to the gate. This one has a mechanism similar to the drawbridge from early in the dungeon. Use the Beetle to slice the rope on this side of the gate, then go through the tunnel on your left to reach the opposite side and the other rope.

After the gate rises, go forward to the ledge. Go through the passage, defeating a few Bokoblins along the way, to reach the Bird Statue. Save and return to the stone sphere. Go further ahead, and continue whenever the lava ceases to spurt from the walls. Afterwards, carefully traverse the narrow path to reach the main portion of the room. Bump into the switch on the platform from earlier to finish the bridge properly. Get onto the bridge, use it, and go through the door.

(1 of 2) Chuck a bomb around here.

Chuck a bomb around here. (left), Then hide in this alcove to avoid the boulders. (right)

In here, go across the gap to find a steep incline. Hug the left wall as you dash up, going into the alcove when possible. Let your stamina recover and then go to the hill’s peak. Here, go into the nearby tunnel. On the other side, dig around to reveal an air vent. Use it to reach a ledge. Follow this path to find a nice little balcony overlooking the second incline. Withdraw a Bomb and aim above the dirt patch or so - if you’re lucky, you should destroy the rock barricade partway up the incline.

Go back through the tunnel and dash up the incline. Go into the alcove when possible and restore your stamina, then make a mad dash for the top of the incline.

(1 of 2) This seems easy, almost too easy.

This seems easy, almost too easy. (left), We knew this would happen. Leg it! (right)

At the top, use the nearby Bird Statue, then go up the nearby winding path. At the top, you’ll find a chest, in which you’ll find the Dragon Sculpture. As you proceed to go back down, a boulder will be launched down the incline after you! If this thing hits you, it is an instant Game Over). Make a mad dash downhill, grabbing Stamina Fruits along the way. If you succeed, you’ll stop the lava flow. Use the Bird Statue again, then proceed to insert the Dragon Sculpture into the door.

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.
