Now, an explanation on the Clawshots. They use a targeting system much like the Slingshot or the Gust Bellows – you point and press A to trigger the effect. What is the effect? You can be drawn to certain target-like tiles in the area (they are scattered throughout the Desert). You do the same with vines, too! I think that’s it though – unlike the Hookshot of Wind Waker, you cannot use it to grab treasure. sigh

Anyhow, go west upon regaining control to find one such Clawshot target. Hit it with the aforementioned item and get on the ledge to find a random treasure in the chest. Then go to the northeastern portion of the Desert to find a path under the sand leading to a narrow looped path you previously could not access. You can now go to that path, and then Bomb the northeastern wall to find a cavern. Go into it and defeat some Yellow Chuchus to find a chest at the end; inside it, you’ll find a Piece of Heart!

$$$item 2315

Nearby should be a canyon of quicksand, completely filled with Clawshot targets. Use the Clawshots to go from target to target. At the end of this “path”, you’ll find a Goddess Cube. Hit it with a Skyward Strike, then drop down to the hidden path. Follow it straight and go towards the cage filled area. There, Clawshot the quicksand pit target to find another Goddess Cube. Hit it with a Skyward Strike.

$$$item 2288

From there, continue westward and past the Hrok’s tree. Clawshot onto the wall opposite you to find a chest (Red Rupee) and a mine cart. Push the latter off of the ledge for a future shortcut. Next, follow your little shortcuts made in previous trips to the sandfall in the west. Once there, hop onto the higher ledge and hit the Clawshot target with the Clawshots to get on the ledge. Go into the caverns.

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.
