The whirlwind teleports you back into the forest, holding Makar. You appear in front of the Great Deku Tree. Makar jumps out of Link’s hands and apologizes for getting lost. The Great Deku Tree forgives him, and congratulates you by giving you Farore’s Pearl !

The ceremony still hasn’t happened, so Link sticks around for it. Makar pulls out his violin and beings to play - commencing the ceremony. The Koroks - badly, I may add - sing as seeds appear from the Great Deku Tree. Eight Koroks fly into the air, grab the seeds, and say a few words before departing. Now, leave Forest Haven.

As you near the King of Red Lions, you should see the mailbox shaking. It contains a letter with a Piece of Heart! When you talk to the King of Red Lions, he seems worried that Ganondorf may be gaining power. It is even more imperative that you get the next pearl - Nayru’s Pearl!

As usual, he rushes you. However, there is a change - you may sail anywhere you wish to now – anywhere! Complete any side-quests (see section six for details on some that are available) you want to, then sail to D2 on your Sea Chart: Greatfish Isle.

Set hundreds of years after the events of Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker finds the hero Link in a sea scattered with 49 islands, which necessitates frequent sailing and naval combat. Link lives with his grandmother and younger sister Aryll on Outset Island, one of the few inhabited islands in the Great Sea. The people of the Great Sea pass down a legend of a prosperous kingdom with a hidden golden power. An evil man found and stole this power, using it to spread darkness until a young boy dressed in green sealed the evil with the Blade of Evil's Bane. The boy became known as the Hero of Time and passed into legend. One day the sealed evil began to return, but the Hero of Time did not reappear. The inhabitants of the Great Sea are unsure of the kingdom's fate, but it is clear that this legend is the story of Ocarina of Time where the Hero of Time, Link, fought Ganondorf. Can you emerge as the new Hero of Time?
