1: Introduction [INTRO]
Thank you for reading my FAQ! This isnt my first FAQ, but its one of the
simplest Ive ever written. Now then I will cover weapons, items you pick up
such as Rupees, key items and of course the aggravating swap chain items. To
jump right to a section simply highlight the tag. Then hit Ctrl + F and then
paste the tag in. Hit enter until youve gotten to the stop you wanted.
2: Items [ITEM2]
***** Weapons ***** [2WEPA]
Location: The Heros Cave
This is the starting weapon Link finds in the Heros Cave west of the
village. One thing that made the Wooden Sword better in this game was that it
was earned, but in Ages, Impa gives it to you. It can be used to kill
enemies, cut bushes, pick items up and even hit the crystal switches in many
dungeons. Link can also use his Hylian powers to charge up and unleash a
powerful Spin Attack.
Location: The Lost Woods or Man in Basement - Link System
This sword is much more powerful than the Wooden Sword. In Seasons, Link
finds it deep in the Lost Woods near the Tarm Ruins. This can cut signs and
pots, kill enemies in less blows, and if Link has full energy he can shoot a
beam out of the tip. Unlike in Ages you do not have to complete the Swap-
Quest to get this, but it makes it more worthwhile.
Location: Man in Basement - Link System OR The Lost Woods
The legendary, evil banishing blade, the Master Sword. This is even more
powerful than the Nobel Sword, however to obtain it you must do a linked game
with Ages. This sword can hurt Ganon without having to spin attack. *Note: If
you do not have the Noble Sword when you would get the Master Sword then you
will get it instead. You will get the Master Sword from the Noble Swords
Location: Mount Goron Link System
Like the Master Sword you need to get a password to obtain the strongest
sword in the game. This has a large slash range because it is a large two-
handed sword. Because of this Link can only equip this and nothing else, so
its kind of bad to use in the wrong situation.
Location: Holodrum Village Shop
This is the shield that Link can start with. You must purchase it in the
village for 30 rupees, or sometimes you can find it from random chests or in
Gasha Nuts. The shield protects from rocks and arrows mainly.
Location: Subrosian Smithy Hard Ore OR Link System
This is the second shield you can get in this game. Once you get the Magnetic
Gloves you must gather the two Ores in Subrosia, smelt them in Hard Ore, then
have the smiths there make the shield. It provides more protection than the
Wooden Shield and matches well with the Noble Sword. However if Like-Likes
eat this then it will cost more than the Wooden Shield did to buy back from
the Holodrum Shop.
Location: Subrosian Smithy Link System OR Hard Ore
This is the third and final shield in the game and you get it by the
same means of getting the Master Sword. This large shield can block
almost every projectile attack but is the same size as the Iron Shield.
This shield matches with the Master Sword, and it will cost a lot of
money to buy if Like-Likes take it. *Note: Like the Master Sword, this
will be the Iron Shield if you do not have that when you do the link.
You can then get this by doing whats needed for the Iron Shield.*
|Rod of Seasons|
Location: Subrosia - Temple of the Seasons
This is the mystical item that can control all the seasons of Holodrum. This
item is found in the Temple of the Seasons in Subrosia. However its power is
gone and it must be powered by the Four Season Spirits. With the Rod you can
change the season from atop a stump, but you can only change to the seasons
of the Spirits youve met before. Once you get all four as you change it will
go in the proper cycle starting with Spring (Spring is the real season in the
game): Spring Summer Fall Winter. This cycle continues over and over in
case you slip up and skip the season you desire.
Location: Level 1 The Gnarled Root
This bag allows Link to carry a variety of seeds he may need to use
throughout the journey, it is found in the Gnarled Root. You can find seeds
on Seed Trees, but some will only grow seeds at certain times of the year.
There are 5 seeds in all:
* Ember Seeds = These seeds come with the bag. When Link throws them
they will ignite bushes, signs, torches and even monsters.
* Mystery Seeds = These seeds will activate the Owl Statues, they can
also set enemies on fire, send them away or tornados are just hurt
* Scent Seeds = These seeds can do two things. First off is hurt
enemies by shooting them with the seeds, or if you toss them on the
ground most enemies will be attracted to them.
* Pegasus Seeds = Like the name hints, these seeds give Link more speed
that lasts for a few seconds. If shot at enemies they will simply hurt
* Gale Seeds = These seeds are used to transport Link to any Seed
Trees hes seen throughout the game. They can also send most enemies
away in a tornado if used on them.
Location: The Subrosian Dance Hall
The legendary Zelda boomerang can be found in the land of Subrosia in the
Dance Hall. It is needed to visit the Spirit of Winter. It can also grab
distant items and paralyze enemies.
Location: Level 6 - The Ancient Ruins
This boomerang is not only stronger than the original one, but by
holding down the proper button you can control its path. This
boomerang also has more range and can go across an entire screen. This
is found in the Ancient Ruins and is needed to kill the boss there.
Location: Level 1 The Gnarled Root OR Holodrum Village Shop
The bombs are another returning Zelda item. These can blow up walls, open up
hidden caves and of course hurt enemies. You can only hold a few at first,
but by finding hidden characters and a certain password you can get up to 99
Location: Subrosian Grass Cave Link System
These are timed like real bombs, however they will either scurry in a
straight line or go after a nearby enemy. These can only be acquired through
the link system.
Location: Level 2 Snakes Remains
This item allows Link to lift up pots, rocks and other heavy objects.
You will find it in Snake Remains and it is needed to kill Dodongo.
*Note: In Ages this levels up to a glove, there is no level up in
Location: Level 3 The Poison Moths Lair
This nifty item can be located in the Poison Moths Lair, level 3. This lets
Link jumps over small holes, and when used with Pegasus Seeds he can
sometimes clear two squares. In side-scrolling areas Link can jump up one
Location: Level 7 The Explorers Crypt
This is the level 2 version of Rocs Feather. This is found in the Explorers
Crypt. First jump, then if you continue to hold the button you will glide two
more squares over a hole. Link the Feather, use this with the Pegasus Seeds
if you might not or cannot make it over a hole. *Note: This item cannot be
found in Ages, remember this if you play Ages after this game.*
Location: Level 7 Dancing Dragon Dungeon
In this game the Slingshot is used like the Bow from past Zelda games.
However your ammo is the seeds you can gather and place into your Satchel.
They have slightly the same effects. Please note that Scent Seeds will hurt
enemies, Gale Seeds will send them off in a tornado, Pegasus Seeds will
freeze them and Mystery Seeds are randomized. This item can be used to kill
enemies at great distance and is needed to kill Gohma in the Dancing Dragon
Location: Level 8 The Sword & Shield Maze
This is the leveled up version of the Slingshot. It does the same thing
but actually fires three seeds at the cost of one. This is found in
Level 8, the Sword and Shield Dungeon. *Note: This is the last item you
find before you battle Onox.*
Location: Level 5 The Unicorns Dungeon
There are in fact two gloves, but they alternate. So use the Red Glove
(north polarity) and when you finish it becomes the Blue Glove (south
polarity). These gloves are used to attract to repel Link from various
objects in the game, and it is needed to kill the boss in the Unicorns
Cave. Objects to push and pull include, N-Balls, S-Posts, masks, ect.
Location: Hollys House Woods of Winter
This item can be found in the Woods of Winter. Holly will give it to
you if you get to her house in Winter, in return you must shovel your
path out. This can dig up piles of snow and dig up ground where you can
find various items.
Location: Holodrum Village Shop, Subrosian Dance Hall OR from Ricky
This is the first form of the Flute you get in the game. There are three ways
to get it and each way changes the game slightly. If you win in the Dancing
Game it becomes Dimitris Flute, if you buy in Holodrum it becomes Mooshs
Flute, and if you miss it will be given by Ricky, and it becomes Rickys
Flute. The different Flutes change an area of the game to fit each animals
own abilities, nothing more. *Note: If you play Ages first you will get the
same animal this time around.*
Location: Subrosian Dance Hall THEN from Dimitri Spool Swamp
This flute will summon Dimitri to aid you in water areas. He will take you to
the areas in the Swamp if you get his flute and he will also help you through
the River area. (It is a River if you get him.) To get his flute win the
flute in the Subrosia Dance Hall before going to the northern areas after
Location: Holodrum Village Shop THEN from Moosh in Spool Swamp
This flute will summon Moosh to help you in areas with many large gaps to
cross. If you get this than Moosh will take you to through the swamp and
hell take you through the Wasteland area. (It is a Wasteland if you get
him.) To get this flute buy it in Holodrum before going to the northern areas
after Level 2.
Location: From Ricky in North Horon
This flute summons Ricky to help you in areas with cliffs and small gaps. If
you get Ricky then he takes you to and through the swamp and also through the
Plains area. (It is a Plains if you get him.) To get Ricky simply do not own
the Strange Flute before heading north of Holodrum Village after Level 2,
Ricky will give you the flute.
***** Key-Items ***** [2KEIB]
Location: Buy from the Syrup Witch in the Sunken City
This item works just like the Red Potion from the Legend of Zelda. If Link
runs out of Hearts this potion will bring him back to life, much like a
fairy. You can get these from Maple or buy them from the Syrup Witch for a
sum of 300 rupees.
Location: The Ring Store in Holodrum Village
This item allows Link to carry an assortment of rings to wear, however the
Lv1 box can only carry one Magical Ring. Once Link gets the Lv2 box he can
carry three, and if you can link and get the Lv3 Box Link can carry up to
These rings are found all across Holodrum. In chests, nuts, everywhere.
However you cannot use them until you get them appraised for 20 rupees.
If you find a double of a ring you own already then you will get 30
rupees back, making 10 in the process. Some rings, like the Red Ring,
are good and others, like the Cursed Ring, can be bad.
These Seeds can be found almost anywhere and they must be planted in
soft soil. Once they grow into a Tree, open the Nut to get a semi-
random item based on the number of enemies you killed. This can include
rings, Potions and at one point, a Heart Piece.
|Heart Containers & Pieces|
These large hearts are scattered all around Holodrum. There are two
types, Containers and Pieces. Containers are found after defeating a
dungeon boss and they instantly refill Links life and give him another
heart of health. However Pieces are found in random places, and you
need four of them to get more life. I believe that there are 18 total,
however in the Linked game you can get 20 and in the first half of a
Linked game you can get 19.
Location: The Maku Tree after the Heros Cave Holodrum Village
This key goes into the rock west of where you meet Din. You will
receive it from the Maku Tree after getting the Wooden Sword from the
Heros Cave. This Key unlocks Level 1, the Gnarled Root.
Location: The Gatekeepers House Spool Swamp
This key opens up the floodgates in Spool Swamp. You will get it from
the Floodgate Keepers house. This lets you head south into the swamp,
where one of the three animals will take you to the a Subrosia gate.
After these events you can get to Level 3.
Location: Goron Mountain w/ Mooshs help
This key stops the part of the waterfall, allowing entrance into Level
4, the Dancing Dragon Dungeon. You will find this on Goron Mountain
with help from Moosh; you must then take it to the other mountain and
find the keyhole.
Location: Masters Waterfall Sunken City
You find these flippers in the Sunken City with help from Dimitri. They
allow Link to swim in water. Press B to submerge and tap A to swim
faster. These will help you reach the mountains just north of the
Location: The Other Waterfall Sunken City
You will find this item in the waterfall caves in the north of the
Sunken City. Once you give this to the man in the other waterfall he
will reward you with the Flippers.
Location: Subrosian Shop
This special card allows you to enter the basement of the Horon Village
Shop, where you can buy a Heart Piece, the Treasure Map and Gasha Seed.
You must purchase it from the special item spot in the Subrosia
Market for 5 Ore.
Location: Holodrum Secret Shop
This map is bought in the Horon Basement Shop for the sum of 200
rupees. However it reveals the location of the 4 Jewels needed to enter
the Tarm Ruins, where Link will find Level 6, the Ancient Tower.
Circle: Wise Old Mans House North Horon
Square: Cave in Southern Spool Swamp *Winter*
Triangle: Water near Level 4 Mount Cucco
X-Shape: Mysterious Island Western Coast
There are four jewels in all and Link needs them to enter the Tarm
Ruins. They are a Pyramid, a Square, a Circle and an X-Shape, but are
for the most part, easy to come by. *Note: In the Linked Game the
Jewels will be in different locations.*

Subrosia. If you notice she is the one you follow to the first portal

Subrosia, including the door into the Tower of Summer in the Temple of
Seasons, where you will meet the Summer Spirit.
Location: Mount Cucco
You can find these bananas on Mount Cocco after visiting Subrosia and
meeting the Spring Spirit. Give them to Moosh so you can ride him and
go get the Dragon Key. *Note: Even if you have Mooshs Flute you need
to get the Bananas for him.*
Location: Subrosian Lava Pits
This is stronger than the average bomb, and can only be found in
Subrosia. You take this to the Tower of Fall in the Temple of Seasons
to blow up the path for yourself, and to help some smiths gather ore.

|Essences of Season|
Location: Dungeons 1 - 8
These Eight Essences are hidden in the dungeons throughout Holodrum.
They hold the Maku Trees strength and are needed so he can regrow the
Maku Seed. When combined with the Essences of Time then can create a
portal to the Room of Rites, where Twinvora hide.
Location: The Maku Tree After Level 8
This giant seed is given to Link after he gets the Eight Essences of
Season. This Seed can break the Dark Barrier around Onoxs Castle. This
is also needed along with the Maku Seed from Lybranna to open the Room
of Rites in a linked game.
***** Swap-Quest Items ***** [2SWQC]
Location: Lefts House Holodrum Village
This is the first item for the Swap-Quest. You will get it by lighting the
torches in Mr. Lefts house. Give this to Malon in her house in North Horon,
near where you met Din.
