Upon arriving, go forward and open the small chest for… a Blue Rupee. Get atop the ledge behind it and you’ll find your Master Sword! Pull it out using the on-screen prompts and now we can take revenge on these little beasts with gusto. laughs maniacally

Nearby, you’ll find a Bird Statue and a dig spot. Use or capture the fairy you dig up, then go into the eastern room. Skyward Strike the Cursed Spumes in the lava, then pre-charge a Skyward Strike.

Charged up a Skyward Strike and leap onto the lava platform. (left), Then aim it at the Goddess Cube as you travel near it. (right)

Jump onto one of the lava platforms as they come across, then launch your Skyward Strike at Goddess Cube 18.

Go along for the ride on the platform. The eastbound doorway is temporarily blocked, so go to the northern ledge and go along the path to the next room.

There, drop down and thrust a water plant onto your sword. Go to the magma ahead and use a sword attack to put the water on the magma to temporarily create a platform. Use it to go across.

(1 of 2) Smack the Bokoblins silly, then open the chest…

Drop down here and defeat the Fire Keese and Bokoblins that come around. Open the nearby chest to fully restore the rest of your gear in entirety. Cross over to the other side of the room and ascend the ledges.

Bomb the blockade to be able to return to the entrance. There, go back into the eastern room and ride the lava platform back to the stairway. Ascend the stairway and go into the next room.

Launch the Hook Beetle to cut down the ropes on both sides of the drawbridge. (left), Beyond, you’ll learn one of the parts of the Song of the Hero. (right)

Here, you’ll find a raised drawbridge. Remember that Earth Temple puzzle? Anyhow, cut down the rope on the ledge, then use the Hook Beetle to cut the ropes to the left and right of the bridge.

After the bridge fully lowers, go along the path to meet up with the Fire Dragon and to learn the second portion of the Song of the Hero.

Afterwards, you’ll be outside of the volcano, next to the Earth Temple. Just go ahead and ascend to the sky.


Now, to locate the Goddess Cube from earlier. It is in the Thunderhead to the north of Bug Rock.

(1 of 3) Fly to this small island north of Bug Rock. Then burrow underground.

Land on the southern end of the island, burrow into the tunnel, then exit to the northeast to reach this chest; inside, you’ll find an Empty Bottle.

Do any other stocking up you may need to in Skyloft. When ready, descend into the Lanayru Desert via the southwestern yellow 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.
