Heart Piece #1 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : Kakariko Village Requirement/s : 1x Bomb Directions : In Kakariko Village, head to the northwest corner of Kakariko Village. There is a pit by a cave. Head to the upper ledge and drop off the ledge into the hole. There are chests here with some goodies. Now, examine the north wall and bomb the crack you see. Head north and open the chest for your first Piece of Heart. Heart Piece #2 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : Kakariko Village Requirement/s : 1x Bomb Directions : Head to the green-roofed building (Blind's Hideout) and descend the stairs into the room where you originally had to push the blocks around to get at the rupees inside the chest. Inspect the north wall and bomb a hole in it. Go through and open the chest at the end for a Piece of Heart. Heart Piece #3 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : Lost Woods Requirement/s : [none] Directions : This is a simple one to get. Start by heading into the Lost Woods (the entrance is north of Kakariko Village). Now, continue to head north until you reach a tree trunk with an entrance in it. Pass that and avert your eyes to the 3x3 bush cluster. This is way too obvious. Cut down the center bush to reveal a pit. Drop down and pick up another Heart Piece. Heart Piece #4 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : South of Kakariko Village Requirement/s : 1x Bomb Directions : If you head a little south of the village, you'll come across a few houses and buildings. One of them contains a man who claims that he's feuding with his brother and has sealed the west door. Apparently, he has not sealed it well enough as a simple Bomb will take it down just like that. The other brother is in this room but he's of no importance. Exit and talk to the woman nearby. You will need to complete her race within 15 seconds to get a prize which is very well, the fourth Piece of Heart. Heart Piece #5 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : Marsh-Like Area South of Link's House Requirement/s : [none] Directions : This one's easy. From Link's House, head south two screens and then west one screen. You should reach a large, white, building. If you don't see it immediately, it's probably south of you. Anyway, enter the building to reach some blocks ahead of you. Push the center one north and then either the left or right to the left or right (depending on which one you're pushing). Continue (the chest is inaccessible as of now but you can get it later by pushing the blocks a different direction) and you should come across two switches embedded on the wall. Pulling the left one causes Bombs to drop from the ceiling so don't do that. Instead, pull the right one to make the water run out. Go back outside and your fifth Piece of Heart is right there waiting for you. Heart Piece #6 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : West of Sanctuary Requirement/s : Pegasus Shoes Directions : When Sahasrahla gives you your Pegasus Shoes after passing the East Palace, you can head to the Sanctuary to get yet another Piece of Heart. Head west of it until you reach an elevated plateau. Climb up and take careful note of the cluster of fives rocks. Dash straight into to smash them into little pieces (fun isn't it?) and to reveal a secret staircase. Head down and open the chest at the north end to reveal a Piece of Heart. Heart Piece #7 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : Desert of Mystery Requirement/s : 1x Bomb Directions : Once you get to the Desert of Mystery, you should get this immediately. When you enter the area, head north until you can't go any further. Then start moving east and you should soon reach a cave in the wall. Enter, and continue all the way until you reach a dead end. Now examine the south wall and bomb the crack you find. Go in, open the chest, and collect a Heart Piece. Heart Piece #8 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : Desert of Mystery Requirement/s : [none] Directions : I strongly suggest you pick this up while embarking through the Desert of Mystery dungeon. I haven't memorized he directions through the dungeon to the door leading to the Heart Piece but if you read the Desert of Mystery walkthrough, you'll find it there. Anyway, you need to find a door from the dungeon leading out to a ledge which holds the eighth Piece of Heart. Heart Piece #9 ~ =------------= World : Light World Location : North/Northwest of East Palace Requirement/s : Flippers Directions : This Heart Piece should be picked up after getting the 500 rupee Flippers from that large Zora dude. Anyway, from that point, start moving directly south until you reach a water. Go over it to land in the next section of water. Continue to advance south until you reach two more waterfalls side by side. Instead of riding over them like we just did, head west until you reach grass again. Keep going in this direction until you reach the Piece of Heart. Heart Piece #10 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : Death Mountain Requirement/s : [none] Directions : This isn't a very obvious Heart Piece here. When you get to Death Mountain and pass the old man, you should be traveling up and then west (assuming you follow the walkthrough). There, you will find a cave that's supposedly leading back to Kakariko Village and a long flight of stairs going up. Head up and then east. As you advance, you should notice a small ledge and visible cave below it. Bypass it (unless you want to fairies in it) and you should reach a cave with two large ledges in front of it. Now, stand as far right as you can on the left ledge (you can line yourself up by walking into the left side of the tree-like thing in front of the cave and going straight south. If you did it correctly, you will land on a ledge with a cave. Enter and head all the way to the south where a Sahasrahla Plate resides as well as a Piece of Heart sitting there, plain as day. Phew... Heart Piece #11 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : Death Mountain Requirement/s : Magic Mirror Directions : You can get this Heart Piece right after getting the Magic Mirror from the old man. In fact, you should be collecting this as you head to Mountain Tower. Head all the way to the top of Death Mountain and then advance all the way east. You should reach a peculiar pattern of rocks with a blue warp in the center. Step in to be transported to the Dark World. Link will turn into a bunny (assuming you don't have the Moon Pearl yet) and won't be able to attack. Head east a little and pass the pumpkin-headed creature kicking around a pink ball. Now, take careful note of the north wall. There are two circles on the ground. Step on the east one and use the Magic Mirror to get back to the Light World and on top of Spectacle Rock (or as Sahasrahla refers it as) with the Heart Piece right next to you. If you jump off the north ledge, you'll be at Mountain Tower. Heart Piece #12 ~ =-------------= World : Dark World Location : Pyramid of Power Requirement/s : [none] Directions : Upon defeating Agahnim, you'll be transported to the Pyramid of Power (which is where the Hyrule Castle sits) in the Dark World. Head down the large staircase in front of you and then head down the east staircase. There will be two ledges in front of you. Fall down the eastern-most one and head east and north continuing until you finally reach the Heart Piece. Heart Piece #13 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : Near Lumberjack's House Requirement/s : Agahnim's Defeat Directions : This is easy to get. Transport back to the Light World and head to the lumberjacks' house (north of Kakariko Village by the entrance to Death Mountain). Near their house is a tree with lighter green leaves than the other trees. If the lumberjacks are cutting the tree right now, that means you didn't defeat Agahnim at Hyrule Castle. If there's no lumberjacks around, dash into the tree to blow off the top. Descend the stairs to an underground cave. The Heart Piece is in this area as well as a number of fairies. Heart Piece #14 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : Island on Lake Hylia Requirement/s : Flippers, Magic Mirror Directions : To get this Heart Piece, you have to head south from 3x3 row of pegs that you had to knock down with the Magic Hammer to the Lake of Ill Omen (Dark World Lake Hylia). Along the way, you should come across a gap south of Dark World Lake of Ill Omen Shop. Jump off and swim around a little bit to the northeast until you find a circle of rocks. Swim to the center of it where there are shallows. Take out your Magic Mirror and use it to warp back to the Light World. You'll find yourself on a tiny island with a Shocker and a Piece of Heart. Pick it up and step back into the warp. Heart Piece #15 ~ =-------------= World : Dark World Location : South of the Village of Outcasts Where Heart Piece #4 was Requirement/s : Shovel (the guy gives you one anyway) Directions : Do you remember where you got Heart Piece #4? At the house with the two fighting brothers? Well, head over there. A little to the west of the house is a strange creature standing in front of the opening to a large fenced area. Talk to him and he'll let you keep whatever you dig up for 30 seconds. He'll also let you borrow a Shovel. Now, start digging frantically as many holes as you can. It might take a while but the Heart Piece is under one of those holes. It's in a different location every time so it might take you a few tries to find it. Good luck! Heart Piece #16 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : Desert of Mystery Requirement/s : Magic Mirror, Power Glove Directions : If you start at the Bomb Shop and head kind of southwest towards an area by the Desert of Mystery, you should reach a circle of bushes. It is too obvious to pass up. Step into the circle of bushes and use the Magic Mirror to warp back to the Light World on a plateau near the Desert of Mystery. North of you is a cave. Enter it and head north a little. The 16th Piece of Heart is behind some pots you need to smash. Heart Piece #17 ~ =-------------= World : Dark World Location : East of the Village of Outcasts Requirement/s : Titan's Mitt, Magic Hammer Directions : This one isn't that complicated to get. Thank god! Anyway, begin by heading to the Village of Outcasts. Do you remember where the blacksmiths' house was in the Light World? You know, where you got your sword tempered? Well, start heading to that area but you will be blocked off by two large rocks that you couldn't pick up before (assuming you already tried too). Now that you have the Titan's Mitt, you can pick them up the same way as the Power Glove can. Go through and start smashing every purple peg you see with the Magic Hammer. When you are finished smashing them, a secret passageway will appear to the south. Go through to reach an underground room with a Piece of Heart sitting right there. Heart Piece #18 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : East of the Sanctuary Requirement/s : 1x Bomb, Magic Mirror, Titan's Mitt, Pegasus Shoes Directions : East of the Sanctuary is a graveyard like area. Go there in the Dark World and work your way through the area all the way to the northeast corner. Pick up the rocks with the Titan's Mitt and continue through. There's a plateau nearby that you can walk up to. Get on it and use the Magic Mirror to warp to the Light World to get on top of a plateau. Go through and pick up all the pots. Bomb the north wall to reach a Piece of Heart. Heart Piece #19 ~ =-------------= World : Dark World Location : Entrance to Death Mountain in Dark World Requirement/s : Magic Cape Directions : While in the Dark World, head to where you will find the entrance to Death Mountain in the Light World. Go through the cave (after lifting a giant rock). Continue through until you reach a pit. Use the Hookshot on the skulls on the opposite side to get across. Now you have a large blue bouncer in front of you. If you step into it, you'll be pushed back. Instead of bouncing back and forth, equip your Magic Cape and walk across it. The door shortly ahead leads to the Heart Piece on top of a ledge. Heart Piece #20 ~ =-------------= World : Dark World Location : Village of Outcasts Requirement/s : [none] Directions : First off, head to the Village of Outcasts. Now, around the western area of the town, you will find a house with a engraved chest above it. Enter and talk to the little creature. He'll let you open two chests and will let you keep whatever is in them. Accept and keep on opening chests until you get it. Depending on your luck, this could really take a while but keep at it until you find it. Heart Piece #21 ~ =-------------= World : Dark World Location : Swamp of Misery Requirement/s : [none] Directions : If you search along the west wall of the Swamp of Misery, you will find a strange structure that appears to have yellow eyes and the mouth being the doorway. Enter it and continue through the room with the sparks. Now, there are gray blocks surrounding two chests. Use your brain and move them around (in the walkthrough, I provide directions) until you have access to the right one. Open it for a Piece of Heart. And for the record, the other chest contains a red rupee which equals 20 rupees. Heart Piece #22 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : Desert of Mystery Requirement/s : Magic Mirror, Power Glove Directions : This Heart Piece is also found around the Swamp of Misery/Desert of Mystery. From the Swamp of Misery, head to the northwest corner of the area where there is kind of a niche in the wall. It's pretty obvious as it protrudes greatly against the east wall. Stand as far into it as you can and use the Magic Mirror to warp to Light World in the Desert of Mystery on a ledge. Lift up the large rock next to you and descend the stairs. Head north a bit and you'll be faced with a number of blocks with the Heart Piece on the other side. Now, use your brain and move the blocks the best you can. If you can't get it no matter how hard you try, refer to the walkthrough. Heart Piece #23 ~ =-------------= World : Light World Location : Death Mountain Requirement/s : 2x Bombs, Power Glove, Ether Medallion, Magic Mirror Directions : The 23rd Heart Piece, we're getting pretty close to that 24 mark. Anyway, you should get this Piece of Heart on your way to Turtle Rock. When you appear at the turtle head, instead of entering Turtle Rock, head west. You'll see a large rock. Lift it up to reveal a staircase. Now, just head north until the path seems to stop directly in front of you. This is the signal to use the Ether Medallion. As the effect takes place, you notice that the path really does stretch out further. So walk carefully along the invisible path using the Ether Medallion for help at times. Soon, you will reach a seeable path again. Examine the north wall for cracks and bomb a hole. Go through and you'll find yourself in a "+" shaped room. Bomb the west wall to reach another room. Now you can exit through the south door and you'll find yourself on a plateau high above the ground. Now, you'll notice that I put "Light World" instead of "Dark World" at the top. Aha, use the Magic Mirror and the 23rd Heart Piece will be right next to you! Heart Piece #24 ~ =-------------= World : Dark World Location : Turtle Rock Requirement/s : Magic Hammer, Bow & Arrows, Magic Mirror Directions : To get this final Heart Piece, you need to be inside Turtle Rock and then come outside. Since I can't exactly recap it all right here, I'll suggest you read the walkthrough and the area where I describe Heart Piece #24 in more detail. What you have to do is get on a ledge outside of Turtle Rock and use the Magic Mirror to warp to the Light World. Continue east and enter the door. Defeat every Cyclopses and smash the bouncing pink pegs. The door to the north should be open if you killed every Cyclopses in the room so continue to get the Heart Piece. Again, I plead with you to check the walkthrough.
