Walkthrough's index  •  Tips and Tricks


Even if the order to look for the dragons should normally not matter, a game-breaking BUG makes that it's better not to start with Lanayru's dragon. MORE DETAILS ON INDEX PAGE. We will then start by Faron Woods, the first region you visited. Take off towards the green beam, then as you fall, Fi informs you that something happened to this place and that the Faron Woods aren't accessible anymore. Then land to the...

Sealed Grounds

Sealed Grounds Skyward SwordGroose is waiting for you! The Imprisoned is about to break the seal once again! Jump to the bottom of the pit and the fight begins... This time the monster's got a really bothering tail preventing you to get close. Nevertheless, fight it the same way you did and as soon as Groose tells you to, fire a bomb at it. When you managed to completely shove the Sealing Spike into its head, it now starts to fly! Quickly fire a bomb at it to make it fall to the bottom of the pit. Dash to it and hit the Sealing Spike once more. Despite all your efforts, it will stand back up... And Groose cannot load his Groosenator anymore! Rush to Groose, talk to him and climb into his weapon. Aim at the Sealing Spike to get back on its head and shove it down with three quick downward strikes! When the Elder tells you to, perform the Skyward Strike and mimic the movement with your sword. The Imprisoned is sealed once again.

Go inside the temple. The Elder congratulates you, but also warns you that the monster sets itself free way more often. She tells you that the closest dragon is the forest one, but something happened and the path leading to the forest is now flooded. She had to close the door leading to the forest and created a seal to prevent the water from flowing. How to get there then? Groose offers you to use the Groosenator to get launched into the Woods. Get out from the main door, climb the small path to the right and talk to him. He will get you on his catapult and there you go! You are launched to the...

Faron Woods Skyward SwordFaron Woods

The woods are completely flooded! Swim to the Kikwi Elder and talk to him. He says that the water suddenly started to flow from the Great Tree's roots. Swim to the east, to the bottom of the water and get into the passage (that you already went in) up to a "room" then surface. Get out of the water and get into the light. The Water Dragon will appear and say that she flooded the woods to get rid of the monsters. Before learning the part of the song, Miss Dragon decides that you need another trial. A blue energy ball rises and shatters. The Water Dragon just split the melody into Tadtones scattered around the woods and she gives you a musical score to gather these Tadtones.

Faron Woods Skyward SwordTake a look at the Bird Statue, then climb around the tree up to a flat branch northeast. Jump from the edge of this branch into the water to turn a lily upside-down under which a yellow Tadtone was hiding. Catch it so it's added on your score, then look for the others. They have various colours: blue, purple, red, yellow, green, and most of them are moving in groups. Talk to the water creatures, the Parellas, to get advices. One of them next to the Viewing Platform says that the Tadtones are swimming along small fish, another one south of the tree advises you to perform spin maneuvers to catch them all, but not too often. Another Parella says you have to catch them all in one run, or else they will leave the score, and another one says to avoid the purple bubbles that are poisoned. Some of the Tadtones are into stumps, one is behind a boulder to the west that you have to blow up using the monster in front of it. When the Elder calls for you, go back to him and listen to his advice. Then Fi will add the Tadtones to your dowsing ability. Keep an eye on your oxygen tank, regularly hit the blue bubbles to refill it and swim rather to the bottom of the water to avoid the big fishes. When the score is filled, go back to the Water Dragon and talk to her to listen to a beautiful melody. You just learnt a part of the Song of the Hero! Then the dragon will decide to lower the water level.

Take a look at the forest map with all the Tadtones

Take off to the sky, then fly towards the red beam to the...

Eldin Volcano

Eldin Volcano Skyward SwordUpon your landing in Eldin, you are taken into custody and end up without your sword, along with all your weapons! Break some pots to refill your hearts, then when you get close to the barrel, a Mogma appears to help you. Answer "Well..." to inform him about your dragons' quest and he will tell you about a god that could be living somewhere in those mountains. Before leaving, he will give you the Mogma Mitts that he hopefully could retrieve. Go underground and get out towards the light. Take a look at your map to see that you are to the south of the area and notice five chests that are certainly holding your items.
