Quest Item

The Crystal Ball is a sidequest item in Skyward Sword. The sidequest is available after Link obtains the Double Clawshots and Sparrot, Skyloft's fortune-teller, disappears from his usual place at the Bazaar. Croo explains that Sparrot broke his Crystal Ball and may be at his home moping about it.[1] True to his words, Link finds Sparrot at home. He tells Link to leave, insisting that he is fine, although now he is overwhelmed by sadness and needs a new Crystal Ball to gaze into.[2] Realizing that Link had previously salvaged the Propeller from beneath the clouds, he asks if Link can also find a new Crystal Ball on the Surface for him.[3]

According to him, it was originally obtained by Scrapper, Gondo's grandfather's robot that now follows Fi's commands.[3] When Link agrees, Sparrot thanks him and says that the robot claimed to have found it near a mountain peak.[4] He urges him to hurry, because he cannot see into the future without his Crystal Ball.[5]

Link can set the Crystal Ball as a Dowsing target.[6] He finds it atop of Eldin Volcano, above the entrance to the Earth Temple. Link must use the Clawshots to reach the platform that it is located on. When he finds it, Fi calls Scrapper, who will bring the item to The Sky.[7][8]

Sparrot is thrilled to see his Crystal Ball returned.[9] He says that Link can come to the Bazaar to have his fortune read by Sparrot for a reduced price.[10] Link then receives five Gratitude Crystals.

  2. "I'm fine. Go on, go on... Please leave me be... My crystal ball has shattered, and without it, my eyes can no longer gaze deeply into the future... It's almost as though these exquisite, all-seeing eyes of mine have begun to dull and cloud over with sadness now that my crystal ball is gone. If only... If only I had a new crystal ball to gaze into..." — Sparrot, Skyward Sword.
  3. 3.1 3.2 "Is it not true that you recovered a piece of the windmill from beneath the clouds recently, young man? This shattered crystal ball was salvaged from below by Gondo's ancestor long before it found its way into my delicate hands. There may still be others like it where it came from, yes, yes! Would you search for a new one for me?
    Yes. :No." — Sparrot, Skyward Sword.
  4. "Yesssss... No doubt you can see the gratitude in my eyes! The robot who originally retrieved this crystal ball was said to have reported that he found it in a building atop a mountain peak! Can you believe it?!" — Sparrot, Skyward Sword.
  5. "I'm counting on you, young man! Without my crystal ball, I cannot gaze into the future. Oh no... My eyes, they would droop with despair... Please bring me a new crystal ball with all haste!" — Sparrot, Skyward Sword.
  6. "Your dowsing ability can be calibrated to locate the crystal ball that this person is seeking. However, if you are searching for another object that someone has asked you to find, that target will be removed when you switch to this target. Do you wish to set the crystal ball as your dowsing target?
    Yes! :Not yet." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
  7. "I have located a substance that closely resembles the material used in the fortune-teller's crystal ball... It should make a suitable replacement. Shall I call the robot to collect it?
    Yes. :Not now." — Fi, Skyward Sword.

  10. "Fates and fortunes! My eyes are wide with the thrill of possibility and damp with tears of gratitude! I'll be able to start gazing into the future and making predictions at once! Come by the bazaar again, and I'll tell your fortune for a special price!" — Sparrot, Skyward Sword.
