Poe Soul #49

 - With the newly acquired ball and chain, many new secrets have opened for us. Use Midna and warp to the Snowpeak top warp point. Run to the west and back into the cave that we past earlier. Jump down through most the cave, defeating the ice keese as you pass them. At the far west of the cave, use the ball and chain to break the two blocks of ice. One of these blocks has a Poe waiting for you inside. Transform into wolf Link and defeat it for the 49th Poe soul.

Poe Soul: #49 Snowpeak Ruins
 - In the cave west of the north warp point on Snowpeak. Use the ball and chain to break the two blocks of ice.

 - Transform back to human Link and light the two torches with the lantern. Open the treasure chest that appears to get an orange rupee. Speak with Midna and warp to the Castle Town warp point. Transform back into human Link and walk over to the north portion of Hyrule field.


 - Follow the rocky path and at the split, take the path on the right that leads Link into the higher region that has a rocky surrounding. Continue on in this direction and the path will split again. The path to the north leads to the Zora痴 Domain. Take the left on the left. A little ways down you値l run into a cavern on the right side against the wall. We blew up the boulder that was blocking the cavern earlier. If you haven稚 blown up the boulder before hand, do so now. You can also collect the golden bug that is nearby if you haven稚 already. Enter the cavern.

 - Break the ice that is straight ahead with the ball and chain and walk forward. It is a similar puzzle in this cave that we faced earlier in the Snowpeak Ruins. Link has to push the three blocks so that one of them is on the switch. These ones are a bit more complicated than the ones we did before. Start by pushing the block that is at the northeast corner to the west. Then push the block in the southwest corner to the east and then north. Now push the block that is in the northwest corner south, east, and then north. Finish off the puzzle by pushing the northern most block to the west, south, east, and then north, landing on the switch.

 - Walk to the room to the north and you値l find three more blocks, but there are now two switches on the floor. Start by pushing the southwest block to the east. Then push the northeast block to the west. Now push the southeast block north, west, and then south and it will cover one of the switches. One of the two cages will open up. Now push the southern block to the east, north, west, and then south. Then push the northwestern block to the south, west, north, and then east. It will settle on the second switch and the gate to the north will open up.

 - This third area has a large ice area but only one switch. Start by pushing the southeast block to the north. Then push the southwest block to the east, north, and then west. Now push the northeast block to the west. Then push the western block to the north. Now push the eastern block to the west. All three blocks should now be clogged up in the northwest corner. Now push the northwestern block to the east, south, and then west. Now push the northwestern block north, east, south, west, and north again. Then push the northern block to the east. Finish off the puzzle by pushing the southwest block to the east, north, and then to the west.

Heart Piece: #33 Hyrule Field (North)
Requires: Ball and Chain

 - Use bombs to blast open an entrance to a cave in North Hyrule Field near the entrance to Zora's Domain. Complete all three of the the ice block puzzles to get the heart piece.

View Heart Piece Guide
 - Walk to the passage to the north and open the treasure chest to get a piece of heart. Leave the cavern and then use Midna to warp to the Castle Town warp point. Enter the Castle Town and make your way to Telma痴 Bar. As you enter Castle Town, you should have received a letter from Yeta. She explains that she is feeling much better and that you should come visit any time.

 - You can speak with Telma to learn that Rusl has made his way to the Faron Woods. Looking at the map, you値l see his location is just outside the Forest Temple. Leave the bar and then use Midna and warp back up to the Snowpeak top.

 - Transform back into human Link and walk towards the tree to the east where you値l see Yeta and Yeto. Yeto says it is a nice day for sleds and asks if you will try. Agree to do so and a mini-game begins. The first race is a simple race to the mansion with Yeto. Just hold forward to speed up and the race should be no problem. About two-thirds down the path you値l notice the path curves off to the right. If you take this shortcut, you値l be able to get a quicker time. The shortcut is clearly seen on the map.

 - After defeating Yeto in the race, move away from Yeto and Yeta and warp back to the top of Snowpeak. Walk over to the tree and speak with Yeta. You値l now race with Yeta and she is much faster. You must take the shortcut in order to beat her since she will take the shortcut as well. It is pretty difficult to beat her and may take several tries. She awards you with a piece of heart for beating her.

 - Walk away and then use Midna to warp to North Faron Woods.
Heart Piece: #34 Snowpeak
Requires: None

 - After completing the Snowpeak Ruins, return to Peak Province and you will find Yeto and Yeta wanting to race. Successfully beat each of them and you'll be rewarded with the heart piece.

 - Once you arrive in North Faron Woods, transform into human Link and then walk north towards the Forest Temple. Speak with Rusl and he値l talk about the Sacred Grove once again. He speaks of gaining the power of those ancient people. He then asks you to cross the gorge and find the ancient power. He then calls over his partner and tells you to use him to get over the gorge.

 - Grab the golden cucco and then use him to fly the same path that you went on before as wolf Link. There was a spinning platform straight ahead, but now it is gone. Use the gale boomerang to spin the second platform and then use the golden cucco to fly on over towards it. Drop the cucco momentarily and then use the boomerang to spin the platform once more.

 - Use the golden cucco to float over past the swinging branches to get to the southern platform. There is a howling stone here, so activate it if you didn稚 the first time around. Enter into the Sacred Grove.

 - Walk forward and that same annoying skull kid will appear. He値l blow his horn and create four puppets before running off. This part of the Sacred Grove is pretty identical to the previous one, but a bit harder since there are more paths to go and it is easy to get lost.

 - Follow him straight ahead and since it is dark outside, you値l see his lantern glowing. Follow along the path to the right to get to the next area. He痴 on the higher ledge to the right, just as before. Jump up and strike at him with your sword and then he'll run off.

 - Continue northward through the next hole and you値l see the light of his lantern. If you look up, you値l also see the lantern of a Poe. Walk behind the waterfall and then transform into wolf Link. Defeat the Poe and steal its soul for the 50th Poe soul. Jump off the ledge and then go through the hole on the other side of the room where you see the skull kid痴 lantern floating around.

Poe Soul: #50 Snowpeak Ruins
 - In one of the many areas of the Lost Woods, head behind a waterfall and up the platforms behind. Up top is the 50th Poe Soul.

 - In this large central room just head straight and you値l see his lantern brightening up another path. There are two torches here, which can be lit to find a treasure chest with some bombs. Continue following the path where the light shows you to get to the next area. The skull kid will be on a platform above the water here. Use the bow and arrow to shoot an arrow at him. He値l run off and create a new path to Link痴 right, follow him.

 - Continue following the light of the Skull Kid as he takes you back through several areas that you have already been. He値l lead you back to the waterfall area at the beginning of the Sacred Grove. Walk through the path that forms between waterfalls and follow his light.

 - Continue following his lantern as he goes into circles. He値l eventually settle in the large middle room that has several openings. You値l hear him playing his instrument. Climb up the large tree stumps to the top part of this area. Look towards the middle and you値l see him on top of the trees. Shoot him down with an arrow and he値l run and open a nearby path.

 - This battle is almost exactly the same as it was the first time around. Skull Kid will keep calling out puppets in this area. Defeat the puppets as he calls them out and then take out your Bow and Arrow, and shoot him before he summons more puppets.

 - Keep repeating this process a couple of times, and eventually Skull Kid will give up, and let you head off to the next area.

Summary:
 - Defeat the puppets Skull Kid summons, then take out your Bow and Arrow and shoot him. Keep repeating this process until he is defeated.
 

 - Follow him and then jump off the higher ledge. Walk through the new area to get to an area of ruins, similar to where we battled with him before. He will continuously call puppets from upper areas of the forest. Defeat the puppets and then shoot at him with an arrow. Once he痴 been shot a few times, he will run off and let you into a secret place.

 - Follow him to get to the ruins area of the Sacred Grove.

 - In the area where you found the Master Sword, the 51st poe will be hovering around nearby, only at night time.

 - We are now in the same area where we originally got the Master Sword, except we are on a higher southern ledge. Push down the block nearby, and head to the middle of the ruins. Return to the area where you got the master sword and if its night time a Poe will be floating around. Defeat it and capture your 51st Poe soul.

 - Transform back into human Link and then walk up to the pedestal that held the Master Sword. Press A when standing next to it and it will strike. (If the option to Strike isn't there, remember to equip the Master Sword if you haven't) Doing so will cause a statue on the southern part of the ruins to disappear. Make your way back in that direction and a wall of twilit will appear and 5 shadows will drop from a warp portal. Defeat 3 of them and then finish 2 of them off at the same time.

 - Walk back towards the south end of the ruins and climb up the block that you pushed down. Walk up to the door that is now accessible since the statue is no longer in your way. Open it up and Link walk through the door and appear in the Temple of Time.
