Poe Soul #60

 - Now that we have collected every single item within the game, we can collect some of the last remaining collectables to gear ourselves for the final dungeon. Speak with Midna and warp to the Gerudo Mesa. The Cave of Ordeals is right next to the warp point. Run down the steps to enter the dungeon.

 - The Cave of Ordeals is a completely optional quest but it is necessary in order to fully complete the game, and specifically collect the final 3 Poe Souls.

 - The Cave of Ordeals consists of fifty floors which increase in difficulty greatly as you progress. They really do start off really easy and then get ridiculously hard. I highly suggest that you have four bottles filled with potion, have a good amount of bombs and arrows, already have the magic armor, and have nearly full rupees. Every 10th floor that you reach, Link will find a Great Fairy. Speaking with her will release fairies to various portions of Hyrule. Every 10th floor you will also need an item to progress. Since we have all the items, this is not a problem.

 - Rather than give in-depth strategy on how to defeat every enemy on every floor, I will just be giving a listing of which enemies appear on which floor. There are no new enemies in the Cave of Ordeals that we have not seen outside of the Cave, so there are no surprises. Run forward and drop down to what is the first floor of the Cave of Ordeals.

 - As your reward for reaching the 50th floor, the Great Fairy will give you the Great Fairy’s Tears. Once completed the Cave of Ordeals you will appear at the Lanayru Spring. Walk up to the fairies and use any empty bottle to catch fairies.


21.2 Soul of Jovani

 - With our new found fairies in the bottle, talk to Midna and warp to Castle Town. Run into town as wolf Link and go to the south portion of Castle Town. Go to Jovani’s house and dig in through the hole in the ground. Walk up to him and speak with him. With all 60 Poe souls collected, Jovani will return to his normal self. Jovani award you with a Silver rupee, which is worth 200 rupees. From this point on whenever you speak with Jovani, he will give Link 200 more rupees. (It hardly seems worth it)

 - Run to the north part of town and you’ll see a cut-scene of Hyrule Castle. Midna will use the Fused Shadows fly and hit the walls repeatedly with it. A seemingly giant Midna will then awaken and use her power to destroy the Twilight that surrounds Hyrule Castle. The next we see, it begins to rain and Link is holding Midna in front of Hyrule Castle with the Twilight now gone.

 - Walk forward and push the door open to enter Hyrule Castle.
