The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker/Walkthrough/Outpost Island

Epilogue edit

"This is but one of the legends of which the people speak...

"Long ago, there existed a kingdom where a golden power lay hidden.

"It was a prosperous land blessed with green forests, tall mountains, and peace.

"But one day a mean of great evil found the golden power and took it for himself..

"With its strength at his command, he spread darkness across the kingdom.

"But then, when all hope had died, and the hour of doom seemed at hand...

"...a young boy clothed in green appeared as if from nowhere.

"Wielding the lade of evil's bane, he sealed the dark one away and gave the land light.

"This boy, who traveled through time to save the land, was known as the Hero of Time.

"The boy's tale was passed down through the generation until it became legend...

"But then...a day came when a fell wind began to blow across the kingdom.

"The great evil that all thought had been forever sealed away by the hero...

"...once again crept forth from the depths of the earth, eager to resume its dark designs.

"The people believed that the Hero of Time would again come to save them.

"...But the hero did not appear.

"Faced by an onslaught of evil, the people could do nothing but appeal to the gods.

"In their last hour, as doom drew nigh, they left their future in the hands of fate.

"What became of that kingdom...? Non remain who know.

"The memory of the kingdom vanished, but its legend survive on the wind's breath.

"On a certain island, it became customary to garb boys in green when they came of age.

"Clothed in the green of fields, they aspired to find heroic blades and cast down evil.

"The elders wished only for the youths to know courage like the hero of legend..."

Beginning of the tale edit

After the epilogue scene, Link's sister Aryill will spot Link at the beach tower and will go to wake him up, telling him it's his birthday and his grandmother waits for him at his house.

Climb down the ladder nearby and run over to the westernmost house on the western island and enter it. Go up the ladder inside and you'll find your Grandma.

She will give you a replica of the clothing once worn by the Ancient Hero, mentioning that the clothes need to be worn for the rest of the day. She also mentions to you that this is the day you become the same age as the young hero spoken of in the legend.

It is the day boys were considered to be men and they were taught the ways of a sword so they could do battle with their enemies. She mentions that Orca is the only one on the island that still knows anything about swordplay (we can go right now to master sword art at his place, but it is recommended to be done later when necessary). She tells you that she is planning a party and asks you to go and find Aryll. Head back outside.

First Outpost Island Goodies edit

There are a lot of goodies and secrets in Outpost Island. Those are optional, so you may skip this section or rather doing them later.

Here are the goodies and secrets available at the moment.

Treasure Chest #1 edit

Crawl under the porch of your house and enter the hole at the end. Open the chest inside for a whopping orange rupee, worth 100 rupees

Gathering pigs side-quest edit

East of your house you should find a man lying down in the grass named Abe. Speak to Abe and he will tell you he's trying to catch the pig nearby. Crawl across the ground and sneak up on the pig, then grab it.

Head back towards your house, but turn left and walk up the pathway. You'll notice a pen with Abe's wife Rose inside. Throw the pig into the pen and speak with Rose, who will give you 20 rupees for bringing the pig. She also mentions that she wouldn't mind having more of them.

There are two more pigs around the island:

The first pig is located on the pathway between the pen and your house. Grab this pink pig and return it to the pen, then speak with Rose again for another 20 rupees.

The last pig is located on the eastern side of the island. Walk over the bridge and climb up to the lone house. Catch the pig on the side of the house and give it to Rose for another 20 rupees.

Treasure Chest #2 edit

Head back to the other side of the island, toward the beach tower. Walk inside the house nearby the tower and crawl underneath the bed where there is a green rupee.

Crawl through the hole and open the chest inside for 20 rupees.

Birthday presents and surprises edit

Now go climb up the ladder to the tower. Speak with Aryll and she'll give you your birthday present: her Telescope. Aryll will then tell you to look at your house from here. Pull out the telescope and focus in on your house. Use the telescope to zoom in on the postman, who will then start to panic. Move the telescope up to the sky and you will see a large bird carrying a young girl.

This bird is being pursued by a pirate ship attempting to hit the bird with cannonballs. The bird looks back and gets hit in the face, losing its grip on the girl and dropping her into the forest on the island. Aryll tells you the girl needs help, but you actually cannot go there since you don't have a sword yet.

Sword mastering edit

Climb back down the ladder and walk over to the other side of the island. Walk over the house nearby and the old man standing on top will start yelling at you. Climb the ladder on the right and head in the door at the top. Sturgeon will begin talking to you and then proceed to get upset when a pot is knocked off of a shelf and breaks. He starts stomping on the floor and yelling at the person below him. He tells you his younger brother Orca knows how to fence and spends his day training.

Head back outside and down the ladder. Enter the lower level of the house and speak with Orca. He asks if you want instruction in using the sword. Answer yes and follow all his instructions on using the sword. There are six different moves: The horizontal slice (B), Vertical Slice (L-Target + B), Stab (Forward + B), Spin Attack (Press and hold B), Parry Attack (L-Target and press A when you see the burst), and Jump Attack (L-Target + A). If you pass all of Orca's tests he will give you the Hero's Sword.
