Visit King's Tomb.

Snag the Red Potion.

Go down the hole.
 - From North Castle, go southeast towards Rauru and use the Hammer on the boulder. Go right on the fork in the road right after it. Move into the center isolated tombstone to find King's Tomb. There is nothing else here, so move on. If you go a little southwest from King's Tomb, you'll find a Red Potion.

 - Keep heading directly south from King's Tomb and you'll fall down a hole. Go right and use the Fairy Spell to get up high on the ledge. When you end up on the island, walk through the desert areas and enter the Island Palace.

Use Fairy to get up there.

Get safe on the ledges...
 - As usual, enter the palace and go down the elevator. You'll encounter two new enemies right away: A Doomknocker and Armored Stalfos. Doomknockers give loads of damage by throwing axes at you. The Downward Thrust works best on them. Use Jump to get safe on the high platforms if needed. Go deeper into the palace.

 - Doomknockers throw axes at you. They also come back to them like boomerangs, letting them throw more than one at once. Use the Downward Thrust to kill them quickly.

 - An advanced version of a Stalfos, Armored Stalfos jump behind you a lot and have stronger armor. Duck and slash at their legs to defeat them.

 ~ Finding The Raft ~ 

 - This hallway is full of blocks, Tinsuits, and Myus. The Downward Thrust works great on the Tinsuits as they come by, so use that. Dodge the fire that the Moa drops from above (and the falling blocks). You'll come into another hallway similar to the previous one, but it has a Key and Point Bag under the blocks. Defeat the Doomknocker with Downward Thrusts and go into the next room.

 - Destroy the Red Ironknuckles if needed for experience points. Climb the blocks and go east more. You'll end up outside, and it has a Moa and Red Ironknuckle. Snag the Key and go back inside. Defeat the Red Armored Stalfos and go down the elevator.

Defeat the Ironknuckle for points.

We're outside...?!
 - Go right as soon as you get out of the elevator. This room is full of lava pits and block walls on both ends (the block walls were made so you can't just fly across with Fairy). Grab the Key in the middle and destroy the Red Ironknuckle. It is best to just let the Bots jump into the lava by themselves. Go into the next room.

 - This room has a Red Ironknuckle, and a new blue variation of it. The blue ones take even more hits and actually shoot their swords at you. However, the jump and slash tactic still works on them just like any other variation of them. I highly recommend using Shield since the Blue Ironknuckle is the strongest enemy we've encountered thus far. Unlock the door and get the palace's treasure, the Raft.

Push him into the lava.

 - This Raft will let us sail between western and eastern Hyrule! That is its only use, really.

 - Backtrack west until you reach the elevator we came down in previously. Go take the west hall this time. Slash the statue at the wall to get a Red Potion if needed. We have a new enemy in here, and they're very annoying. The Wolf Heads steal experience points and they come in infinite amounts. Keep going west and climb the blocks.

Blue Ironknuckles. Terrific.

Get the Raft!

Downward Thrust to reach the Key.
 ~ Going To The Boss ~ 

 - Use a Downward Thrust to get to a Key at the bottom. Wolf heads will be coming through constantly, so use Jump and climb out of the blocks. It is not a good idea to try to dig your way out to the east, the Wolf Heads will beam you to death. Go east and go down the elevator.

Grab the Point Bag.

 - One of the most aggravating enemies, Wolf Heads move slowly through the room while shooting beams at you. They are infinite, so be prepared.

 ~ Ironknuckle Happy ~ 

 - Enable Jump and get the Point Bag on the ledge. At this point in the dungeon I would just try to avoid big enemies at all costs. In the last room, go to the top of the three rows and use the Downward Thrust on the right side of the blocks. Killing the Red Ironknuckle can be hard here since you don't have much jumping room. Also, there is a Point Bag at the end of the bottom row if you wanted it. Proceed and enter the boss room.

Their swords go through walls!

Palace Boss: Ironknuckle
Recommended Spells:
 Shield
Required Spells:
 Downward Thrust
Threat:

 - Use the Downward Thrust to kill his horse and it'll be like fighting a normal Blue Ironknuckle from that point on!
Damage:
 High
Speed:
 Fast

Use Downward Thrusts.

Just like battling a normal blue one.

 - The first part of the battle is easy. Use Downward Thrusts a few times when he charges by to kill his horse. After that point, the battle will become much harder. From that point on it is like battling a normal Blue Ironknuckle, but we all know how much of a pain they are. When you finally kill him, snag the Key and head into the statue room.
Summary:

 - Use Downward Thrusts a few times to kill his horse when he charges by. After that, defeat him with jumping and slashing tactics just like any other Blue Ironknuckle.

Halfway there!
 - Put in the third crystal in the statue. You'll get another free level up as usual. At this point I hope you have plenty of level ups in each category, for it'll be harder to level up from this point on. Now that we've cleared Western Hyrule, it's time to take on Eastern Hyrule. Keep up the good work!
