Earth Spring

The Earth Spring is one of the two springs in Skyward Sword.[1] It is found at the end of the Earth Temple in the Eldin Province after Link defeats Scaldera.[2] Zelda first heads here to cleanse her body in the waters of the spring.[3][4] Link arrives just in time to see her depart with Impa.[5] Although Zelda wants to speak with him, Impa stops her and allows her to go ahead.[6] Impa then criticizes Link for failing his task to protect her, claiming that he must conquer the challenges given to him by the Goddess before he can help Zelda.[7][8][9]

Fi deciphers a message written in the language of the ancient gods that states that Zelda has headed to Lanayru Desert.[10][11] Link then receives the Amber Tablet, which he must take to Skyloft to create a path to the Lanayru Province.

  4. "Master [Link]. It appears Zelda has cleansed herself in the waters of this fountain. Based on the information from the message I just imparted, I project she is traveling to a region known as Lanayru. If you transport this tablet back to the statue in Skyloft, a new column of light will appear that will allow you to travel to the Lanayru region. I suggest you return at once to Skyloft and then set out for the Lanayru region." — Fi, Skyward Sword.

If you wish to be of help to Her Grace, you must summon a shred of courage and face the trials laid out before you. Only when you've conquered the trials will you be of use to Zelda. No sooner. Am I understood?" — Impa, Skyward Sword.
