The First piece is located just to the left of the entrance to the Earth Temple. It's buried in a soft spot of soil, so you'll need to use the Digging Mitts to dig it up. The Second Piece is located under the wooden watch tower down a path at the left of the temple. It's at the bottom of a hill of sand. You'll need to roll a bomb flower under it in order to ...

The Japanese spelling of Fi's name is ファイ, the romanization of which is fai. Therefore, the English pronunciation would be faɪ (English IPA), as in rhyming with the word "my." (You wrote this as "Fy".)

There's been new light shed on this, by Nintendo itself in the form of a Zelda artbook. Source: Kotaku

Nope! You're not a bad hero! Unless you think leaving a damsel in distress hanging is bad... then yeah, you are, sorry buddy. Whatever you do, you will always be late and Impa will brandish it over your head, so keep questing! I suppose you could call that a character-building experience for Link? As far as I remember, there are only a few time-limited ...

Yes, the MotionPlus will be necessary for Skyward Sword, and the reason is because we'll need the increased sensitivity to wield the remote as the sword. http://www.zelda.com/skywardsword/#/about/wii-remote-plus-technology

You're supposed to make it dizzy by rotating your sword in a circle (not a spin attack). Do it quickly, but not too quickly—if you go too fast, you'll start doing random swings, which won't work. For the eyes that appear later in the temple, you need to have all of the eyes in a given room look at you at the same time in order to get past them. If not all ...

You can only buy 3 extra wallets from Beedle, each with a capacity of 300 rupees giving you an additional capacity of 900 rupees. The largest wallet that I was able to obtain was the Giant Wallet which you get from one of the special quests. That gives you a base capacity of 5000 rupees for a grand total of 5900 rupees when you include the extra wallets. ...

There are actually no songs for you to select on the harp. You just play the harp in certain places. The only difference between initiating one song or another is where you play the harp. I understand the confusion as all other zelda games with instruments had specific patterns you had to play to activate the song. (Which is a better way of doing it IMHO)

According to Eiji Aonuma (the series producer), Skyward Sword is set before Ocarina of Time: I have already talked to Mr. Miyamoto about this so I am comfortable in releasing this information – this title takes place before Ocarina of Time. If I said that a certain title was "the first Zelda game", then that means that we can't ever make a title that ...

No, there's no left-handed mode, although there were lots of rumours. This IGN editor's note confirms that from Nintendo itself. When sites started reporting our "news" we immediately started to have second thoughts. Was there a left-handed mode? We consulted our combined 50 pages of notes and realized we had made no such observations. That lack of ...

You can hold A down and the conversation text will appear faster. Other than that, no.

This happens if the Cursed Medal is in your adventure pouch. When in your pouch, the Cursed Medal increases the frequency of hearts and rupees, but it doesn't allow you to open, or equip items from, your adventure pouch. The Cursed Medal gets in your pouch unexpectedly if you have an empty spot in your pouch when you receive the Medal from Batreaux. I had ...

No it isn't possible to lose at all. The race will only end if you grab the statue or just stop playing the game. And it would make sense too right? The game isn't about Groose (nor Cawlin nor Strich), it's about Link. The winner of the race will graduate and get all the goodies that comes with it, there is no second round. And you can't really progress ...

Note: This is not available until you insert the first tablet (confirmed by @kareen and @jeffmercado) Open up the gear menu with "1", and you'll see an interface button near the bottom left area of the screen. It should have "Standard" on it. Set it to "Pro" to remove the button layout. Here is a picture of the button: (original image taken from: ...

Skulltulas are less dangerous when they are on the ground. They are very easy to dispatch of as it only really takes two hits to kill them, an upward slash to knock them onto their backs and a final Fatal Blow to kill them. If you ever get the chance to do so, cut them off their webs to kill them, it's very easy to accidentally get hit when you attack them ...

You could use the bugs you find to infuse the potions you buy to become more useful in your adventures or sell excess bugs to Strich in his room at the Academy at night. To infuse your potions, you first need a bottle full of a potion purchased from Luv, the Potion Shop lady at the Bazaar. Next, take your potion to Bertie, her husband that's holding the ...

Here's the changes that I was told by characters in the game or have observed so far: The slot in the quest selection screen will have the goddess insignia on it. You can Skip almost all cinematic and dialog sequences Keep all bugs and treasures from previous adventure Some characters will acknowledge that you're playing in Hero Mode as they speak with you**...

The majority of this game can be pretty easy. Falling through the Fortune Rings and dodging the Dodoh Balls can be easily navigated once you know which paths are relatively safe and which ones should be avoided. It's the landing that is the tough part. I'll walk through these phases separately. But first... Control: When free falling, the controller is ...

Seeing as the game involves the creation of the Master Sword, you can assume that it must come before any games that include said sword (or are clear sequels to such games). So, the only games that could possibly come before it are: The Legend of Zelda (assuming that Magical Sword is not the Master Sword, as a theory goes) Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (...

There are 20 This includes: 6 that you start with 6 from the Pieces of Heart (there are 24, and you need 4 to make a full heart container) 2 from the Life Medals 6 from the bosses in the game.

Link may only leave Skyloft under 2 conditions: It must be daytime. Only graduates of the Academy are allowed to fly at night; attempting to skydive at night results in the annoying lecture from the Rescue Knight. Link may only skydive from designated points (usually wooden piers) in Skyloft; falling off anywhere else does not cause him to assume the ...

The video game rule of vulnerability comes into play here: Hit 'em in the glowy bits. You can never go wrong hitting anything that glows. In this case that means slashing horizontally to cut the blue lines between the "blocks" that make up the body then stabbing the glowing eye. Or just arrow the eye if you have the bow. The same rule of thumb applies to ...

You should try taking the hive down with the slingshot before engaging the rope and running like mad because the bees are going to go after you anyway. You'll have a clear path to cross the rope after that. Apparently, you can also walk calmly and the bees will lose interest fairly quickly.

You can reflect their pellets back at them in two ways: With your sword: Do a vertical swipe at the projectile. With your shield: Jab your Nunchuk forward just before the pellet hits for a counter-block. Also, once you get the Slingshot from Bucha, you can shoot them (which stuns them), then run up and simply finish them with your sword.

Obviously the first thing you want to do is memorize the song. You'll want to know when to expect the fast parts and whatnot to keep it as smooth as possible. To strum the harp, you're turning the Wiimote left and right more than you're waving your arm left and right. So if it is pointed to the left, it will be playing at the lower strings. Pointed to ...

There is a bed on Beedle's shop that you can sleep on. Once you sleep there until night, Beedle will park on the island and you can then do business with him (and also find a Gratitude Crystal there as well.) Sleep in the bed again so you can return.
