After toppling Bongo Bongo and the Shadow Temple, head west of Hyrule Field to Gerudo Valley and Gerudo Fortress. Before long the Gerudo warrior women will toss you in jail; use the Longshot to escape and then slink through their headquarters without being seen. Along the way, you%26rsquo;ll rescue several construction workers, each of whom is protected by a sword-wielding Gerudo. Once you%26rsquo;ve befriended these thieves, you%26rsquo;ll have to enter their training ground and acquire the Ice Arrows.
When you%26rsquo;ve accomplished that, continue west into the desert. Use the Longshot to cross a moat of quicksand, then equip the Lens of Truth to make a ghostly guide visible; without him, you%26rsquo;ll roam the desert forever. Eventually you%26rsquo;ll come to the Desert Colossus. Enter, then exit and learn the Requiem of Spirit from Sheik, then return to the Spirit Temple as Young Link.
Get: Silver Gauntlets, Mirror Shield, Gold Skulltulas x5, Heart Container
The initial trip through as Young Link is rather straightforward. Returning as Adult Link requires a bit more thought, but other than some light-bending puzzles, there%26rsquo;s nothing you haven%26rsquo;t already faced. After obtaining the Silver Gauntlets, you%26rsquo;ll have to return as an Adult and complete the temple.
Above: If you run past this floating Anubis enemy, it will hover over to the locked door. Use the Fairy Slingshot to trigger the switch, which will set the monster ablaze
Above: This odd-looking rock can only be asploded with a well-placed Bombchu
Above: These tough-as-nails Darknuts pack a wallop. Keep away from their heavy swings (which can break pillars, revealing hearts) and strike while they prepare for another swing
Above: As Adult Link, use the Longshot to zip across this statue%26rsquo;s hands
Above: Use these snake statues to bounce light from one room to the next
Fighting Twinrova: By now you have the Mirror Shield. When one sister fires her magic beam at you, hold R to raise your shield and reflect the spell back at the other sister (fire magic at the ice sister, ice magic at the fire sister). Soon they%26rsquo;ll combine into Twinrova and change tactics. Now, use the Mirror Shield to absorb three of the same magic blasts in a row, which will then fire a retaliatory blast back at Twinrova. Attack her while she%26rsquo;s stunned at repeat. Note: you must absorb three in a row %26ndash; if you%26rsquo;ve sucked in two fire spells, avoid any ice spells she tosses and vice versa.
The final battle approaches %26ndash; your next stop is Ganon%26rsquo;s Castle!
