Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Walkthrough

A step by step guide to Link’s epic adventure through Hyrule and beyond.

Ordon Village

After the first introduction with Rusl, walk to the entrance to the north to find Epona in the pond with Ilia. Talk to her and then pick up the grass to blow on it and play a song. Once you are ready, hop on Epona and head west and then south to the village. Talk to the villagers and speak to Colin and Rusl about the fishing rod. He will tell you that it will be available tomorrow, so continue on south to the Ordon Ranch and talk to Fado who will ask you to herd the goats in to the barn for him. Stay in front of them and press A to shoo them towards the barn until they all enter. Once they do, you can then practice jumping the fences in the pasture by dashing towards them. Once you are done goofing about, hop the fence to the pasture and you will be given the chance to save on your way back to town.

Now that the next day has come, climb the ladders to get down to the main floor of your house and head outside. Talk to Beth to learn the shop has a new slingshot and Colin to learn that his mother has the fishing rod. When in the village, talk to the folks including Sera’s husband who will tell you about a bee’s nest above his house that he is trying to knock down, and Ula holding a baby near the river looking for a cradle. Go to the west of the area to talk to Jaggle – atop a vine covered column and he will ask you to climb up. Do so and hop across the stones to pick some grass there. Blow it for a hawk to land on your arm, which you can now aim and use to hit objects. Aim it at the bee hive directly across from you to knock it down. Now you can head over to where the bee hive was and climb up the vines and tree to get some rupees on the branch.

Head back down, and enter Sera’s store to the west. Talk to her and she will tell you that she is depressed because she scolded her cat for eating the fish and now she doesn’t want to sell anything. Hop back up the vined column outside and hop across the rock platform again. This time continue across to the roof and again to the next platform. Here, pick up the grass and blow it to bring another hawk. Aim to the northwest and you will see a monkey dancing with the cradle there. Let the hawk go towards it and it will bring the cradle back for you. Bring it to Ula at the river and she will take you to the house to get the fishing rod. Once you have the rod, go to the dock behind the water mill and cast it off into the deep water where the fish are swimming. When you see your bobber go down, pull back on the Wii-mote to pull up a fish. If you don’t get it the first time, keep trying and you eventually will. When you catch a fish, choose to let it go and Sera’s cat will grab it and take it back to the shop.

Head over there and talk to Sera who will now be in a better mood and ready to sell things. Buy the sling shot for 30 Rupees and then make your way back to your house. When you get to the area, Rusl will tell you that he left a present for you inside. You can talk to Beth and the kids now for some target practice as well as head inside to grab the wooden sword inside the chest. Once you have it, show off your mad skills to the kids and then they will go chasing off after a monkey. Follow them north to the Faron Woods with Epona so that you can hop over the fence that blocks the way.

Ordon Ranch

Now that you are back at the ranch, use the grass on the ground after talking to Fado and use Epona to herd the goats into the barn again. Once done there, leave the ranch and make your way to the Mayors house by hoping over the fence and leaving the ranch. Once you do, a scene will play and Ilia will take Epona to the springs for a refresher. Make your way there and talk to Colin in front of your house. He will ask that you take you to the spring to see Ilia but that Talo and Malo always stop him. Talk to the two kids and give them your sword and then continue on. Once you reach the spring, it will be blocked and you will have to use the tunnel to the south to enter it. Crawl through and a scene will play, taking you to the next area.
