Outset Island

Outside of the cave, you can already tell that the curse has lifted because of your obtaining of the third Pearl, because it is no longer storming and is looking almost like dawn is about to break.

You have to place the three Pearls on three islands in the Great Sea. They are marked on your Sea Chart. First, the southernmost one - Southern Triangle Island. Set the wind to blow north-east. Sail in that direction.

Southern Triangle Island

Here, you’ll encounter a lot of Seahats like you did around Cyclops Reef, if you crossed there on the way to Outset. You can defeat them in the same way you killed the Peahats in the Forbidden Forest - two whacks with the Boomerang. When you defeat/ignore them, sail to the island.

Climb the ledges to reach an odd-looking statue. Approach it and the statue will seem to talk, asking Link to put the Pearl in its hands. Link will put Nayru’s Pearl in its grasp automatically. There is nothing left to do here - set the wind to blow north and go to Northern Triangle Island.

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?
