Still not in the 5th dungeon. You can re-read my older posts for impressions of the first half of the game, there's some tips here and there
Also, check out Fi's rumors from time to time. There's some really good intel in there sometimes. She tells you the max number of rupees in the game, for one.
You'll like it. There's about 4 wallet upgrades, not including the 3 you can buy from Beedle. Or two? There's one in a chest somewhere.
- Someone said something about the number of sidequests: don't worry, there's plenty of them, just not all at once. It's not MM proportions, but it's possible that by the end of the game every NPC in Skyloft has been involved in a sidequest in one way or another (group families together). By my calculations there's at least 12 that get you Gratitude Crystals, but of course there's also NPC-related sidequests besides that, or stuff you can get cash from.
- There's (another) major Super Mario Sunshine moment
in the game. Those of you who've seen a certain place and have a certain item will smile.
To be fair, I did like how the Sand Bellows was used in the fight. It was mean of them to make such a big deal out of the sand being drained.
I honestly don't remember what I said to Impa.
Also how great was Link's reaction to catching the harp?
Any chance I can get a hint related to the Farore trial? I don't want to spend a bunch of my playtime tomorrow looking for the last tear.
It was great. And to hupla: haha yeah that answer.
- Although about answers: I've found that often times two slightly different answers can still get you the same reply. Though I've only tested this a couple of times. If a character wants to share his knowledge with you, you'll usually get it all no matter your answers.
- The Faron trial wasn't too easy, the forest has many nooks and crannies and it's possible one was under something and the ray of light didn't extend through the roof. I'm not sure. But those ghosts
can be relentless.
After seeing all of the crazy NPCs in this game I really wish we could have seen what Skyward Sword would have done with Tingle. Stupid Casamassina.
Tingle, well sorta...
There's a doll of him in a shelf SOMEWHERE.
- There IS a way to get inside Zelda's room. And you'll also be able to see a certain character naked
- You can run while crouching (in holes and such). Apparently you can also access a hole underwater.
- The Gratitude Crystals look like SMG's star bits! And there's many rewards for getting a lot - brings back memories of OoT's Gold Skultulla's (the fact you got something every 10 until you reached 50). Similar deal here.
- TWW throwback: in Gear Peddler Rupin's house you can piss off his wife by
breaking her antique. There's different amounts of cash you need to pay depending on what you break.
- If there's some kind of seat close to a character, sit on it, sometimes you get dialogue from them and it'll be different than when you speak to them normally.
- Why are there 2 Heart Medals in the game? Seems pointless to have more than one.
- You can use the Whip to steal Monster Horns from Bokoblins.
- The best way to deal with the bigger varieties of Chu Blobs is to just throw a bomb their way. They'll gobble it up or just be near it and explode. No having to deal with smaller versions.
- Since I don't have to obsess about rupees at the moment, I'm finding the occasional Stamina Potion quite handy. 3 minutes of much slower stamina meter depletion are sweet.
- There's a chest in some island (not that far from the small island close to Fun Fun Island), where you have to fall inside a small crater. If you steer a bit to the side you'll land on the ledge with a treasure chest.
Koloktos is AWESOME. I needed my potions, too, damn. Very satisfying to play with oversized weapons (giggity) - it brought to mind many sweet TWW battle moments.
- Where's the Rattle? Do yourself a favor and watch the Hint Movie. Sure there's a place you've never been to, but I still couldn't figure out how to get there.
OMG mine cart rollercoaster! And you can redo both halves a legit race (the times to get a good reward are steep, too! But easy cash for just decent times.
