    How to Kill the Earth Temple Boss

    earth temple

    When you get to the earth temple boss you will notice the many spots of light dotted around the room. Run into one of them and using the mirror shield reflect light onto the boss hold it long enough and he will be paralyzed. While he's paralyzed run towards him and lift him up then throw him into one of towers of spikes that run up the walls. He will explode and loads of tingle-like creatures will start running around. Start killing them (two hits is all it takes) - you won't get chance to kill them all before you meet the ugly ghost guy. Repeat the process as many times as it takes to kill all the tingles and viola, he's done!

    How to Kill the Lava Boss

    When you enter the boss room you have to walk forward a few feet and then it will show you a short clip of the boss coming out of the lava and then the battle starts. What you have to do is pull out your grappling rope and swing it at the tail hanging from the ceiling. when it latches on start pressing forward the backward until you are swinging very high. then press A when reaching the climax of your swing to land on a platform(if you stay up there too long he will eventually start breathing fire on the platform which will burn and hurt). then once you let go of the rope the ceiling will fall on top of the bosses head and it will show a clip of a layer of skin flying of the bosses body. he will then push up and ram the ceiling back to where it was. do this until his whole armor falls off, you don't need to swing any more now. go down to ground level and when he hits his claws on the ground ready to breath fire what you do is run up and smack him with your sword(if you want to kill him faster then target, pull sword out, and press A which does twice as much damage as a slash). repeat this until he is dead.

Your grandma will be sick, and the people will tell you to bring her a fairy from the Fountain on the island (this is easier if you still have one from the dungeon). Use the fairy when in front of your grandma and it will heal her.

To do this run down to the docks and wait for the guy in red coveralls to approach the mailbox. Take a picture of him just as he starts to place a letter into the mailbox.

Show her the joy pendants( there the butterflies that have a string of beads around them) she will take a few. Go back and show her again and she will ask for 20 of them. Give them to her and she will give you a deed to the access of the canaba (it is to the southeast from where you are) .Sail there from Windfall Island (I would recommend that you give bait to the fish around the island so that he will mark it on your sea chart). It is the island that has a house on it and a little pond. After you get there, walk up to the door (the one that has the butler on it), stand next to it, then take out your deed and show the butler it. He will say that you are the new owner and you get to go in and it is named after you. Here are some tips for things for you to do inside...When you first walk in take a very good look around. You may notice four vases, two on the bookshelf and two above the fire place. I will not tell you how to get the two above the fireplace but I will tell you this, there is money in all of them, a lot! All I can tell you about the other thing is that you will need your grappling hook. Also look up. I hoped this cheat made your quest a little bit funnier and exciting.
