Woodfall Temple

majora's mask walkthroughA tip for all temples: It is hard to clear out a whole temple within three days, meaning, defeating the boss + finding all stray fairies + performing specific actions after the boss has been beaten. So, before anything, you should focus on the boss. Because once the boss is beaten and the game saved, when you are back to the temple, you can directly go to the boss room to fight him again and carry out all necessary actions afterwards. You can also look for stray fairies once the boss is done, you will just need to find all the small keys again according to their locations.

In this temple, like in the other ones, there are 15 stray fairies to find. You can use the Great Fairy Mask to bring to you those that are freely flying around.

Afterward, quickly remove your mask, look for Gekko on the walls, target him and fire arrows to hit him. Repeat this technique twice, then open the door, open the chest and get the Boss Key. Come back to the previous room, as Deku Link, glide towards the door on the right (west of the map) and open it.
