Dharkstare

Ice Ruins walkthroughAs you will immediately guess, you need to use the Fire Rod several times to melt the ice around him. As soon as this is done, run to him (without falling) and try to strike him as many times as you can with the sword before he encases in ice again. You have to repeat this technique until you finally beat him. During the fight, keep moving and avoid his attacks, particularly the "triangle" one. As soon as you see three points forming a triangle, run outside to avoid being hit.

Take the Heart Container, then touch the portrait to the north. In the Sages' room, Rosso turns to be also a Sage. Walk in the bright circle to go out. As for her, Hilda says she can feel the power of the Triforce of Courage and is sure that Lorule will be saved thanks to you.

You find yourself back in front of the Ice Ruins.
