|High session 5|
At 17:18 play time... starting off in Kakariko Spring.
now starting the search for the 3rd piece of the fused shadow. I crossed the eldin bridge, and then some twilight portal showed up and took the middle piece of the bridge just like in SSBB. and some twilight creatures landed there... it seems like you can just ignore them if you want to, but I went back and took them out easily with a couple sword spin attacks without even giving them a chance to attack.
now i'm in this narrow pathway between mountains, in another loading zone but still in Eldin Hyrule Field... I know there was that hookshot platform with a bug before, but now there's also a platform you need the spinner to get to.
there's also a REALLY pointless junction here that is just an alternate longer one-way path with nothing there that joins back up to the main path 3 seconds later... wtf is with that?
also there's one of those rock piles blocking a cave that I can't blow up with regular bombs... just like the one blocking the south Castle Town entrance.
and finally up ahead, the end of the narrow path is a twilight curtain...
Midna: "The last fused shadow... the last of the twilight you'll see, I guess."
- Lanayru Province - Hyrule Field -
found Ilia's scent already...
Midna: "Hey, haven't we seen this castle before? So, we finally made it back here! Well, only a little farther, so hang in there!"
This twilight covered Lanayru is the biggest part of the overworld yet... it encompasses Castle Town, the castle, and the whole northern/western/southwestern Hyrule.
I see the end of Zora River here, leading into Hyrule Castle Town... with a bridge with royal art on it...
seems like there's a whole big narrow path to the north that leads to the main part of Zora River, and a narrow west path that leads to the path between west Hyrule Field and the big southwest area... but those are both blocked off, the only way to go is the way the scent leads, to the southwest path that leads to west Hyrule Field...
West Hyrule Field... this place feels really cool... looks like a main entrance into Castle Town, with fancy gates on the outside of the moat... oh yeah and there's that overlook area, where you can see the giant bridge overtop of Lake Hylia... that big huge area is the lake? where the heck does the desert fit on the map then?
The scent leads into Castle Town, but there seems to be nothing stopping me from heading down the path to that bridge? hmm... I definitely remember a cutscene on that bridge where Link falls off into the lake... but it seems I'm supposed to go to Castle Town first... hmm... saving here just in case.
oh wow... it turns out going to Castle Town now and listening to all the villagers is completely optional? Midna's mission takes priority, so following Ilia's scent is just an optional thing and you can go to Lake Hylia and start the bug hunting quest before doing that.
I hear a couple of women talk about a Zora child who collapsed near here, and was taken to Telma's bar near the south road (I'm at the west road now)... but most other NPCs/guards walking around have nothing to say, they're just decoration basically. to the south there's that circus minigame tent. Agitha's Castle is the first thing I see on the south road. then Fanadi's fortune telling mansion which has a cool looking exterior.
That's west south road... the main south road I see some gorons selling fresh spring water.. and some dudes talking about how Lake Hylia has dried up..
oh and I found the scent again... seems to come into south road from the east and then curves into the southeast alley where Telma's bar probably is... guess I'll go back the other way and follow it.
most people in central Castle town are all talking about the same thing...
"The water level of Lake Hylia has gone down, and you can't cross to the spirit cave."
"If people who came to worship from far away heard that, they'd be very disappointed..."
"It must be hard on grandma too, because she can't do her tours."
Ilia's scent leads in and out of the Medical Clinic on the east road...
on the southeast street.. I found a little side alley where some cats were hanging out in front of Jovani's house... this one cat talks about doing reconnosense in central castle town... another cat says he doesn't trust that guy in the tent in southwest street, another cat complains about the lineup of humans blocking the way in south street. another one just wants to take a bath.
