The Water Dragon’s Scale is one of the Goddess’s three gifts. It grants the user the ability to freely swim underwater and perform a spin attack.

While underwater, hold the A button and move the Wii remote/Joy-Con/right stick to swim around. If you release the A button, you’ll start to float upwards and you can move with the left stick instead.

To do a spin attack, shake the nunchuck/Joy-Con/click the left stick inwards. This will let you destroy fragile objects or hurt monsters. If you aim upwards near the water’s surface, you’ll spin through the air–you can use this to climb up ledges too high for your arms to reach.

Where to Find

The Water Dragon’s Scale is your reward for completing Farore’s Silent Realm in Faron Woods.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft–a floating village in the vast sky. For ages, you’ve been training at the Knight Academy and, today, the day of your graduation has arrived. While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…

Our strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (HD) contains all the necessary knowledge to search for and rescue Zelda, such as a full walkthrough with detailed maps. Plus every hero needs a rest; if you want to grab all the collectables and fix other people’s problems (sidequests), we can help you with that too!

Newly added:

  • Revised and re-structured the walkthrough to make it more accessible.
  • Added dozens of useful maps.
