I’m sure my 1337 gaming skillz are waning. After winning the dance-off and getting the Boomerang and the Winter hoodilly for the Wand of Seasons (or whatever it is) I wandered around for a good half an hour trying to figure out where I was supposed to go. The answer (“down a chimney”) was staring me in the face the whole time. Tch.
Off to Dungeon 2 then, and got the Power Bracelet. How silly of Link to lose all these items between quests! A couple of new ideas make it into this dungeon (pushing rolling log things), but sadly the end boss is almost the same as a previous Zelda boss. Only with a slight Power Bracelet twist.
So that’s the second essence found, and six more to go. And three more season thingies. Hurrah!
