Once you reach Outset, the King of Red Lions finally seems to notice that day hasn’t broken yet - in fact, time itself hasn’t changed - since you left Greatfish Island. If you remember from earlier, the pirates were going to leave at dawn. If dawn doesn’t come, they won’t leave.

Therefore, you should feel to visit with everyone. However, I want you to go to the Forest of Fairies, as you will probably go there anyhow - and you should, if you want the ability to get more Rupees!

In front of the pier, you see what you never did while here earlier - there are monsters here. All of the monsters outside of the forest consist mostly of Red or Green Chuchus, although the upward path to the forest has some Miniblin on it.

If you remember, the path to the forest is on the far left side of the left island, on the upwards-moving path. At the top, you’ll find the bridge to be broken. You’ll also find a bit more of hill on the opposite side. Get onto the highest rock on that extra hill.

Change the wind direction to west. Face the entrance to the forest and jump off the rock, using the Deku Leaf to glide over to the entrance. Now, go into the forest.

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?
