The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Leaving Skyloft

Vincent Lau

Knight Academy

And so, we’re back in our bedroom again. The Headmaster will give you the uniform for graduating from the Academy – as irony may have it, the suit shall be a verdant green! Exit the room and head over to Fledge. Speak with him to receive the Adventure Pouch, which has four slots for item/equipment storage; it does get expanded through various upgrades later on. Exit the Academy.

(1 of 2) This handy pouch will come in useful during your long journey.

Once you exit, speak with Horwell to receive the Wooden Shield, which is stored in the Adventure Pouch. Get some practice using it at the Sparring Hall if you want.

(1 of 2) Ta-da, here’s a shield that can easily break!

Ta-da, here’s a shield that can easily break! (left), Still, it’ll suffice against the lightweight foes you’ll face during this part of the game. (right)

Afterwards, head to the bazaar and into the large purple building. You can speak with some vendors here and whatnot; more or less, just be sure to buy a Potion. The Revitalizing or Heart Potion is preferred; it is your preference that determines it, though.

Ready to go? Go to one of the numerous wooden runways around Skyloft and dash and jump off the edge. Press Down and summon your Loftwing! Fly southeast to the green light and dive to the planet’s surface below.

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.
