Walkthrough

The inside of the well centers around the premise of finding items for Gibdos that guard certain doorways. Completion requires the Gibdo Mask, Magic Beans that must be purchased at the Deku Palace or from a Business Scrub, a Blue Potion (or Red Potion in Majora's Mask 3D), and at least one Bottle that should already have been obtained from the Zora Egg quest in Great Bay. All other items, listed below, may be purchased ahead of time for convenience but can be obtained at specific places within the well.

For easier reference, a table and map has been listed showing each Gibdo's request as well as quantity needed. A link to the Text Walkthrough is also provided.
