Hello fans of actual Zelda! Welcome to another thrilling episode of #ZeldaStarringZelda!
Today Zelda is still getting used to her new power and being all buff and stuff. She's gonna tour around Hyrule again and leave no figurative nor literal stone unturned as she seeks out treasure and adventure.
First order of business is to get out of this stupid desert whose figurative and literal resources have run dry and see what we can find back on fertile ground.
Well, this is weird. These little bugs with rocks on their back start pooping out rupees when you take their rock off the back and then poof into nonexistence.
Zelda does not question the financial soundness of trying to throw money at a perceived predator (hell, she might have tried the same thing herself), and just collects the pocket change. But she wants more! There must be more loot to be hoarded nearby!
What about those big boulders? Is she strong enough to lift them now?
Deadlifting is now within grasp!
And the other boulder right next to it concealed an underground entrance. Let's see what's inside...
What's this? A thief! And his pots are full of rupees!
Right, right. East of lake Hylia. Already got it, ice wand was in there. Still haven't found much use for it, but thanks for the tip.
The best part is that the rupees all magically respawn when Zelda goes in and out, so she does this a few times until her pockets are completely bursting at the seams full of sweet, sweet cash.
Alright! Dashing right along to the sweet melody of rupees clanging in her pocket, Zelda remembers that there was another big boulder right up by the witch's hut blocking the way. She's eager to find out what lies beyond it.
Now, watch your form, Zelda says to herself. Bend your knees. Keep your back straight. And one, two, three, hwaaaaahh!
She discovers the watery domain of the Zoras, who don't seem that happy to see her and emerge from the depths to chase her on the shallows.
Zelda can't swim in the deep water, so she carefully wades along the shallows, making her way to the end of this region, noting a currently unreachable piece of heart up on a cliff overlooking the water.
Whoa! Something big is coming out of the water!
It's a really big Zora!
The big Zora has some primo aquatic footwear for the princessly sum of 500 rupees! What a steal! And some advice to dive into whirlpools too!
Zelda can't wait to put this advice into action.
Hold the flippers high for the cameras!
Hooray, Zelda is now a champion swimmer! Together with the deadlifting skills, she has become quite the athlete today.
She swims around to find this little forest path leading to that piece of heart she saw earlier on that cliff. Almost have another full heart completed!
Now the aquatic Zora domain is quite the waterpark. Heading out, Zelda notices this waterfall.
Hey, wasn't that barfly back in Kakariko talking about some waterfall of wishing with some nice lady inside? This must be it!
