13.1 Treasures & Trading

Items: Treasure Map #24, Treasure Map #25, Hero's New Clothes, Treasure Map #26, Telescope, Guard Notebook, Wood Heart, Swordman's Scroll, Prize Postcard

 - Now that we have the northeastern sea chart, new sidequests have opened up for us and it starts at Harrow Island.


~ Harrow Island ~

 - Two more treasure maps can be found with both of the sunken treasures located in the northeastern quadrant. Sail on over and pay the 50 rupees to play the game. It may take you a few tries but just keep digging as the treasure maps do come up relatively often.

New Item: Treasure Map #24 Harrow Island
 - This map shows the location of a sunken treasure in the northeast quadrant of the Great Sea!

 - Now that Link can sail into the northeast quadrant, he also has access the to top-right corner of the northwest quadrant, which was previously unreachable. This lets Link reach a lot of new sunken treasure that he couldn’t reach before. So now is a good time to catch up on all the various sunken treasure that we can get from the different treasure maps.

~ The Great Sea ~

 - Now that we are sailing in this new quadrant, we can bump into the 6th and final golden frog. There are three small rocks near the bottom-right of the quadrant. The golden frog is northwest of the southern most golden frog. Hit it with your cannon and it will hold up the cyclone warp sign. It is an awkward looking shape. It is almost like a square, except the left side is slanted inwards. Be sure to mark it on your sea chart.

 - There is also another travelers ship sailing about. This is also the start of the trading sidequest that leads Link into getting the swordsman’s scroll, which contains the Great Spin Attack. Sail on over to the traveler’s ship to find several octoroks, a blue chuchu, a yellow chuchu, and a huge zora warrior. Defeat all the enemies on the ship and the door will open up allowing you to leave.

 - Walk towards it and the ship captain will come back down thanking you. He introduces himself as the Man of Smiles. After speaking with him, tap on him again and he will offer a reward for Link. Say you would like something mysterious and he will reward Link with the Hero’s New Clothes. He says that the clothes were worn by a hero of ancient times. Since he is in a generous mood, he also gives link another treasure map!

New Item: Hero's New Clothes Northeast Quadrant – Traveler's Ship
 - The hero's clothes are the first item in the trading quest that leads to Link acquiring the swordsman's scroll. The hero's clothes are later traded to a traveler in the northwest quadrant for the telescope.

New Item: Treasure Map #26 Northeast Quadrant - Traveler's Ship
 - This map shows the location of a sunken treasure in the northeast quadrant of the Great Sea!

View Treasure Map Guide

 - Head back outside and pull out the cyclone slate. Draw the backwards N symbol to get to the northwest quadrant. Remember the pretend hero on the northwest quadrant traveler’s ship? Well sail on over to his ship and speak with him. He is ecstatic about the clothes. He talks about how he can sense them and they are collector’s items. Give them to him and he will give you a telescope in return. Well, actually, it is a kaleidoscope.

New Item: Telescope Northwest Quadrant – Travelers Ship
 - The telescope is the second item in the trading quest that leads to Link acquiring the swordsman's scroll. The telescope is later traded to a traveler in the southeast quadrant for the guard notebook.

 - Leave the ship and pull out the cyclone slate once again. Warp to either of the two cyclone slates in the southeast quadrant. Remember one of the ho-ho tribe members on the traveler’s ship was looking for something? Sail on over and board the traveler’s ship.

 - The ho-ho tribe member at the bottom-left is the only one who is missing his telescope. Speak with him and he is very excited about the telescope. He sees that his name is on it and is so happy that he bites his tongue. He thanks Link for returning the telescope to him and in exchange, he gives link the guard notebook.

New Item: Guard Notebook Southeast Quadrant – Travelers Ship
 - The guard notebook is the third item in the trading quest that leads to Link acquiring the swordsman's scroll. The guard notebook is later traded to a traveler in the southwest quadrant for a wood heart.

 - Now that you are back out at the sea pull out the cyclone slate once again. This time use it to warp to the west side of the southwest quadrant. The man at the traveler ship in this area was missing his notebook remember. Sail on over and show him the guard notebook that you just got. It has his name on it and he is pleased to have it back. In exchange for the guard notebook, he will give you a wood heart.

New Item: Wood Heart Southwest Quadrant – Travelers Ship
 - The wood heart is the fourth item in the trading quest that leads to Link acquiring the swordsman's scroll. The wood heart is later given to the Old Wayfarer. He promises a gift for Link back at his him at Bannan Island.

 - Our next stop is at the Old Wayfarer’s hut at Bannan Island. Warp over to the northwest quadrant and then sail to Bannan Island. Enter the Old Wayfarer’s hut and you will see he is gone. Speak to his pretend mermaid friend Joanne and she tells you he has went out wayfaring. Return to Lineback and warp to the southeast quadrant.

 - There are now two traveler’s ships sailing around. Sail over to the one that roams the seas at the west part of the sea. Board the ship to find the Old Wayfarer. Speak with him and he goes on and on about romance from the heart. Just listen to his blabber and keep talking with him. Eventually, Link will offer the wood heart and he gladly accepts. He reluctantly thanks Link. Keep speaking with him and then when you are trying to leave the boat, he will hint that he has a special gift for Link, but not with him at the moment. It is back at his hut in a large treasure chest.

 - Leave the boat and warp back to the northwest quadrant. Sail on over to Bannan Island but you will be stopped by a giant eye plant. This one is just like the one we fought long ago around Molida Island. Set a course back and forth around the eye plant and just keep aiming at its eye when it peaks out. After a few shots it will disappear so sail on over to Bannan Island.

Walk on over to the Old Wayfarer’s hut and enter it. The Old Wayfarer has returned and tells you that you have earned what is in the treasure chest. Head on over and open it to get the swordsman’s scroll.

New Item: Swordman's Scroll Bannan Island – Old Wayfarer’s Hut
 - The swordsman’s scroll is the last item in the trading quest. The memories of a veteran swordsmen flow through it. The scroll allows Link to perform the great spin attack. To perform it, just do a spin attack three times in a row.

 - Leave the hut and try out your brand new great spin attack. Pretty cool, isn’t it. Anyway, head on over to Lineback and set sail once again.

 - Use the cyclone slate and head back to the northeast quadrant. Board the traveler’s ship once again and defeat all the enemies in the ship. The Man of Smiles will come down and thank you once again. Just keep talking to him and he eventually says that since you helped him, he will give you a present.

New Item: Prize Postcard Northeast Quadrant - Traveler's Ship
 - After getting the swordsman’s scroll, return to the traveler’s ship in the northeast quadrant and defeat the enemies once again. The Man of Smiles will come and thank you once again. Keep speaking with him and he will eventually give you the Prize Postcard. Just put the prize postcard in any mailbox and then Link will receive various treasures and ship parts periodically for the rest of his journey.

 - Leave the traveler’s ship to get back on the sailboat. There are two main islands in the northeast quadrant. There is the Isle of the Dead at the top-right of the sea and Isle of Ruins, which is blocked off on the left side. There is however, another uncharted island at the far north of the quadrant. Sail on over and as you get close, Ciela will notice the island and mark it on your map. Dock at the newly discovered Maze Island.
 

13.2 The Maze

Items: Treasure Map #27
Gems: Wisdom #17, Wisdom #18
Heart Containers: #12


 - There is a stone tablet and a statue. Tap the statue and it will give you instructions on the island. Once you are ready pay the 20 rupees for beginner mode and it will show you four stone statues within the maze. Be sure to mark them on your map.

Maze - Beginner

 - Enter the maze and immediately head right. Stay along the outside perimeter of the maze and run right along the south end. You’ll eventually come to some spikes that are blocking your way to the first statue. Look at the map and you’ll see there is a long way around to get to the statue. Take the long route and hit the first statue.

 - Backtrack out of the route to the statue and you’ll see two sets of stairs that lead to a higher platform. Take the one on the north end of the platform and aim an arrow at the eye statue above. Hit it and it will create a small bridge and lower the spikes. Jump off the platform and cross the lowered spike. Hit the second stone statue found here.

 - Stay along the right of the room and head up. Pass the first left and make a turn at the second left turn. Walk up and down as you circle through this area and you will come out at the third stone statue. Only one more statue left to go.

 - Take the left passage until it comes to a fork in the road. Head left, avoiding the possible turns until you come to a point where you have to go up or down. Head down and then climb up the small steps. Jump across the small gap and run down the steps. Cross the bridge and the fourth and final statue is just to your left. Hit it and a treasure chest will appear near the center of the room.

 - Cross the bridge and head up the steps once again. Jump across the gap to the right and then jump across another gap. Run to the right and jump to a third higher platform. We are now on the same platform as the treasure chest. Run upwards and open the chest to get a wisdom gem.
 

Wisdom Gem #17 Maze Island
 - Solve the Maze Island puzzle on beginner and a treasure chest will appear on the higher platform near the center of the island. There are four stone switches on beginner mode. After the four are hit, quickly run through the maze towards the chest and open it for the wisdom gem.

View Wisdom Gems Guide

 - Tap the statue once again and this time your difficulty level is on normal. It costs 50 rupees to play this time and there are now 8 statues that you have to hit. The four from the beginner level are still there but there are four new ones. Mark them on your map and run into the maze.

Maze - Normal

 - Start off by running straight to the right until you come to a set of stairs. Climb up them and jump off the ledge to the right. Keep running to the right and then down a bit. Climb another set of stairs and hit a switch, which lowers to spikes just to the right. Jump off the platform to the right and run to your first statue at the southeast part of the maze.

 - After you hit the switch backtrack towards the lowered spikes and use the boomerang just above. Toss it over the small gap and hit the switch to lower a set of spikes. We’ll get to this statue soon, but for now just run to the east and climb the steps just as before. Hit the eye switch with an arrow and the spikes will lower. Run on over and hit the second statue.

 - Run up north just like before but this time take the first left. Run through the small maze until you come to the third statue. Hit it and then continue in the same direction. Run to the south and cross the spikes that we lowered earlier and hit the fourth statue.

 - Run north along the left side to get to the area right by the prizes. Run east a bit and then continue north to the top-most statue that we got before. Hit the fifth statue and then head left once again. Keep heading left until you have to go north or south. This time head north until you come to two wooden pegs. Use the grappling hook to create a tight rope and then slingshot your way up to the higher platform. Run to the far left and jump off and hit the sixth statue.

 - There is a switch in the area just below. Hit it and it will lower the spikes above. Backtrack and run passed the spikes. Ignore the first turn and head south at the second turn. Just keep heading downwards until you come to a small bridge. Cross it and hit the seventh statue that is right on the other side.

 - Cross the bridge again and climb the steps. Jump across to the platform on the right and then to the next one. Run right along this higher platform and you will see the eighth and final statue. Jump down and hit it and the large treasure chest will appear on the prize platform. Climb the steps and jump across to the right.

 - Run on upward and open the chest before time expires. Your reward on normal is a new treasure map.
 


New Item: Treasure Map #27 Maze Island
 - This map shows the location of a sunken treasure in the northeast quadrant of the Great Sea!

View Treasure Map Guide

 - Hit the statue once again and now your level is on expert. It now costs 100 rupees to play and there are 14 statues you now have to hit. 8 of them are the same from normal difficulty while 6 of them are brand new.

Maze - Expert

 - Start the maze just as you did before. Run to the right and climb the steps. Jump off the platform to the right. Instead of running to the right, sidetrack below a bit and you’ll find the first statue waiting for you. Hit it and then backtrack and continue heading east. Head south a bit and climb the steps. Hit the switch and jump off the ledge just like before. Use the boomerang across the gap and hit the crystal switch just like before. Then run and nail the southeastern most statue. Now run to the far right of the maze just like before. This time, climb the steps along the south and you’ll find the third statue. Then jump off and climb the steps above and shoot the eye switch with an arrow. Jump off and hit the fourth statue on the right.

 - Now run up and take the first left. Navigate the same way you went before and hit the fifth and sixth statues. Now rush up along the left side and pass the prize platform again. Run to the right and head up just as if you were going to the northern most statue once again. This time however, head up on the right side and you’ll come to a small gap. Use the grappling hook to get across to the statue at the northeast corner. Hit the seventh statue and then run downwards. Take the first path to the left and run the maze. At the end head up and hit the eighth statue just as we did before.

 - From here run to the left and then up again, making your way to the two wooden pegs. Create a tightrope just as before and slingshot your way up. There is now a statue right on this higher ledge so hit it. Then run to the left and jump off the platform and hit the 10th statue.

 - Hit the crystal switch below just like before and then run across the spikes. Take the second path southward and you’ll find a statue right in your way. Hit the 11th one and then continue south crossing the bridge. Hit the 12th statue that is in the same area as before.

 - Cross the bridge and climb the steps just as before. Jump across the two platforms and drop down the lower floor. Hit the 13th statue that is waiting for you. Then head north and west, circling back around to the steps. Jump across the platform once again and run to the right. The 14th statue is in the lower area right area so jump down and smack it. The treasure chest will appear so climb the steps and jump on over to the treasure platform. Run on over and open the chest before time expires to get a new heart container!
 

Heart Container #12 Maze Island
 - Found in the third large treasure chest on Maze Island. Link must hit the 14 statues on expert mode to unlock this treasure.

View Heart Containers Guide

 - Back at the entrance to the maze, the stone statue says your name will be carved into the stone tablet and it wants to give you a prize. Open up the chest to get a big gold rupee worth 300 rupees. Hit the statue and walk back on over to the entrance of the maze and the door will open.

 - There are a few secrets left within the maze for Link to uncover. You may have noticed a treasure chest on the right side of the island. Walk on over to the area where there was a statue on the far right side of the island. Just to the left of where the eye statue is, use a bomb against the wall at the top. It will explode giving Link access to the chest above. Head up and open it to get a wisdom gem.


Wisdom Gem #18 Maze Island
 - There is a treasure chest on the far right side of the island. Use a bomb against the wall just to the left of where the eye switch is. It will blow a hole in the wall, allowing Link to reach the treasure chest. Open it to get the gem.

View Wisdom Gems Guide

 - There are also two big green rupees waiting to be discovered. One is at the southeast corner of the island. Just dig up some of the grass with the shovel to find it. The other is near the northeast corner of the island, just to the west of the small gap. Once again, use your shovel to dig up the big green rupee.

 - That is all there is to explore at the island so head back on over to Linebeck and set sail. Since we can’t yet reach the Isle of Ruins on the left side of this quadrant because of the cyclone blocking its way, we should make our next stop at the northeastern island, the Isle of the Dead.
 

13.3 Isle of the Dead

Items: ?????
Gems: ????? Gem #1
New Enemies: ?????


 - Upon docking, Linebeck notices that the island is deserted but that it wasn’t always this way. He sends Link off as he polishes up his ship. The first thing you should do is head right and drop the Prize Postcard into the mailbox if you have it. Then enter the cave on the right.

 - There is a book on the center table and four books against the wall on the north. Read each of them to find some information on an esteemed explorer, McNey. In the books it speaks of the pure metals and the Cobble Kingdom. After gathering the information from the books head to the left side of the cave. Before exiting, place a bomb along the north wall to reveal a secret passage.

 - There is a ton of rupoor in this area, which is quite difficult to avoid. Use the bow and arrow to defeat the flying keese and then slowly navigate your way northward. Breaks the pots and then collect all the loose blue and red rupees. There are four treasure chests in this area waiting for you. These include two ship parts, a treasure map, and a courage gem.

New Item: Treasure Map #28 Isle of the Dead - Cavern
 - This map shows the location of a sunken treasure in the northeast quadrant of the Great Sea!

View Treasure Map Guide

Courage Gem #18 Isle of the Dead - Cavern
 - In the cave right when you enter the Isle of the Dead. Place a bomb against the north wall on the left side of the room. Blast through the hole and navigate past a ton of black rupoor. At the end of the room, there are four treasure chests. The one that is second from the right contains the courage gem.

View Courage Gems Guide

 - Head back down and use to the steps on the right to avoid having to cross the black rupoor. Exit the cave along the left side of the room. There are two rupee likes waiting for you. Use bombs like you did before to defeat these guys and circle around the trees.

 - You’ll notice there are piles of bones on the ground and some of them are getting up! These piles form enemies known as stalfos, who are classic adversaries of Link.

Stalfos

 - Stalfos appear as a collection of bones on the ground. Once Link draws near, the bones will form a skeleton enemy and begin to throw bones toward Link. Stalfos are quite agile and will jump away if Link tries to strike them with his sword. Use the jump attack with your blade. Alternatively, the grappling hook, bombs and the boomerang work wonders against these bony foes.

 - Travel your way across most of the island to the pyramid at the top right corner. Climb the steps and enter it. Read the two stone tablets. The one on the left warns Link of Phantom corridors. If you run into one of these, you will find the bones of McNey. To leave that area just head south. The second tablet writes of a secret tree near the king’s chin. It then tells you that there is a secret that is West 13 and north 7 from the king’s chin.

 - Leave the pyramid and head to the southern part of the island. Remember what we read in McNey’s journal. The island is shaped like a giant head facing to the right. Thus, the chin of the island would be at the southeast corner. Walk over to see there is a normal tree, the only one of its kind on the island. This must be the tree the tablet spoke of. Count the tiles on the ground and go west 13 and north 7. Pull out your shovel and dig up the spot and a hole in the ground is revealed, so fall down under.

 - You’ll notice a cracked wall above. Use a bomb to explode open a hole. Walk through to find a ton of rupees, pots, a treasure chest and a stone tablet. Read the stone tablet and it tells you to aim west from the king’s eye and shoot an arrow. Keep that in mind and then open the treasure chest for a power gem.

Power Gem #18 Isle of the Dead
 - From the tree at the bottom-right of the island, walk left 13 spaces and up 7 spaces. Use the shovel and dig up a hole in the ground. Fall down and bomb the wall above. Open the treasure that is found in this room to get the gem.

View Power Gems Guide

 - Leave the room below and then begin navigating to the left. Maneuver around a ton of boulders that are rolling in your way and head around the cavern. Defeat the keese that are in your way and you’ll eventually come to a staircase. Climb up the steps and exit the cave. You are now outside but on a higher platform. Walk to the right and you’ll see a treasure chest. Open it to get a treasure map.

New Item: Treasure Map #29 Isle of the Dead
 - This map shows the location of a sunken treasure in the northeast quadrant of the Great Sea!

View Treasure Map Guide

 - Remember the tablet said to aim west from the King’s eye. If you look at the map, the small horizontal area between the chest and staircase is the eye on the map. Stand even with it and walk all the way to the left. Use the arrows and shoot a switch that is on the left on a raise platform. Hitting it will open the door that leads to the graveyard at the northwest part of the island.

 - Jump off the ledge to the north and head on over to the graveyard. If you read the stone tablet just outside the graveyard it says that the six sages who know the way of the temple rest here. There are nine graves here, each with some sort of inscription. Three of them are unreadable, while the other six each have numbers and a direction. If you look at all six of the graves, the path within the temple will be known. The six graves read as follows...

"I am the first sage. Go north through the first room."
"I am the second sage. Go east through the second room."
"I am the third sage. Go east through the third room."
"I am the fourth sage. Go north through the fourth room."
"I am the fifth sage. Go north through the fifth room."
"I am the sixth sage. The sixth room is where Brant was laid to rest."

 - Now that we know the secret route through the Phantom Corridor head back to the northeast part of the island and enter the pyramid. Walk through in the same order as stated above. Walk north, east, east, north, and north again.

 - You’ll come to a new room and meet the ghost of the fourth knight, Brant. He states that this is where the dead of the Cobble Kingdom lay to rest. Answer him by clicking well… and he then sees why you are looking for the Aquanine. He states the King Mutoh has the Aquanine that Link is looking for. He then tells you to venture forth through the door and opens it up.

 - Once you are outside, head straight up and you’ll find a large treasure chest. Open it up to get a Regal Necklace.

New Item: Regal Necklace Isle of the Dead
 - The Regal Necklace will put the cyclones on the great sea to rest, which will allow Link to access the Isle of Ruins.

 - Brant appears and says that King Mutoh who is holding the Aquanine is not here. He explains that Mutoh is on the island that is guarded by a rock wall, the Isle of Ruins. He explains that with the Regal Necklace, Link will calm the cyclone allowing him to sail to the island.


Blah.
 

13.4 Back At Sea

 - That’s all that is left to do on this island, so jump off the platform below and run on over to Linebeck. Set sail and there are just a few things we want to take care of before docking at the Isle of Ruins. There are five sunken treasures in the northeast quadrant that we have yet to uncover.
