The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

Leaving Skyloft

Vincent Lau

Knight Academy

And so, we’re back in our bedroom again. The Headmaster will give you the uniform for graduating from the Academy – as irony may have it, the suit shall be a verdant green! Exit the room and head over to Fledge. Speak with him to receive the Adventure Pouch, which has four slots for item/equipment storage; it does get expanded through various upgrades later on. Exit the Academy.

Once you exit, speak with Horwell to receive the Wooden Shield, which is stored in the Adventure Pouch. Get some practice using it at the Sparring Hall if you want.

(1 of 2) Ta-da, here’s a shield that can easily break!

Ta-da, here’s a shield that can easily break! (left), Still, it’ll suffice against the lightweight foes you’ll face during this part of the game. (right)

Afterwards, head inside the Bazaar, which is the large purple building in the center. You can speak with some vendors here and whatnot. Just be sure to pick up an Empty Bottle from the Potion Shop and buy a Potion. The Revitalizing or Heart Potion is preferred; it is your preference that determines it, though.

Ready to go? Go to one of the numerous wooden runways around Skyloft and dash and jump off the edge. Press Down and summon your Loftwing!


Map of the Sky.

Now you can fly freely in the sky, although there isn’t that much to see right now.

Once you’re ready, make your way southeast to the green light and dive to the planet’s surface below.

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.
