Eldin Volcano is a scorching landscape where no man dares to tread. The mole-like Mogma don’t seem that bothered by the heat though.
Hot on the Heels of Zelda
During Link’s first trip to Eldin Volcano, he’s searching for Zelda who arrived before him. In order to climb the volcano, he’ll need help from a Mogma. Afterwards, some clever folk broke the key to the temple and scattered them nearby.
The Missing Pinwheel
After acquiring the Goddess Harp, Link’s quest to unlock the secrets of the Ballad of the Goddess will take him back to Eldin Volcano. One of the pinwheels at Skyloft fell down to the volcano–perhaps you already noticed it earlier?
Din’s Silent Realm
Later on, when Link is seeking the Sacred Flames, he’ll need to undergo one of the Goddess’s trials just outside the Earth Temple. His reward is the Fireshield Earrings, blessed jewellery that allows the user to withstand extreme temperatures–perfect for entering the Volcano Summit.
When Link reaches the door to the Fire Sanctuary, he’s faced with a dangerous wall of fire. With some clever thinking, he borrows the water basin from the Water Dragon at Lake Floria. However, just when things are going smoothly, Scrapper–who Link asks to carry the basin–messes up the landing site at Eldin Volcano and Link has to escort the annoying robot all the way up to the summit…
Finally, when Link decides to visit the Volcano in search of Eldin the dragon, a sudden volcanic eruption knocks him out cold. When he wakes up, Link discovers he’s imprisoned by the Bokoblin and must stealthily explore the volcano to reclaim his prized belongings.
Shops and Services
Run by Tubert the Mogma, who’s found in a cave blockaded by boulders near the Bokoblin camp after running up the first slope. In this mini-game, you can dig up patches of dirt, which can yield rupees or a bomb. You can keep any rupees you dig up, but digging up a bomb will instantly end your run. There’s no other reward here.
