Wii Any% Beginner

This odd version of the Wii Any% Route is intended for a few purposes. Firstly, it serves as a route which will work on the USA 1.2 and the KOR Wii versions of the game. It also serves as more of a beginner-friendly route for the game.

Note that most GCN&Wii tricks/glitches linked in this route are done on Gamecube and therefore are mirrored on Wii version. In addition, there are several more advanced strategies which are not mentioned in some places but instead linked in the notes below the route.


Major Tricks:

Also Included But Not As Major: - Faron Gate Clip - Early Boomerang via Bridges - Various Mailman Skips (for NTSC 1.0 Only) - Fan Activation Skip - Argorok Cutscene Skip

Notes:

  • Ordon: When you get more advanced, you can utilize Sword and Shield Skip to skip obtaining the Ordon Shield and Ordon Sword. This is a fair bit harder but saves a few minutes in this route. It is, however, a trick you will want to learn, as the faster Any% route requires it.

  • Lakebed I: If you are not on NTSC 1.2 or KOR, there is a way around performing Helmasaur LJA. This does utilize Map Glitch, hence why it will not work on those versions.

    • After obtaining the Iron Boots, warp to Zora's Domain, enter Snowpeak Mountain, and perform Map Glitch. Climb the mountain, remembering to howl at the howling stone at the top once to get rid of map glitch. After reloading the mountain continue on to Snowpeak Ruins as normal; inside the dungeon Ooccoo is in Yeto's room, in the pots in the cupboard area.
    • Ooccoo out, warp to ZD, dash to UZR and steal bombs from Iza with Ooccoo JR. Ooccoo out immediately again, then warp to Lake Hylia and continue on from there. You can then use bombs with the boomerang on the stalactites in the second room, to avoid having to perform Helmasaur LJA. In the staircase room, simply head for the lower left door, ignoring Ooccoo for now. Grab the small key in the single cog room, then grab Lakebed's Ooccoo when you go to the locked door in the central staircase room; this will overwrite Snowpeak's Ooccoo.
    • Ball and Chain: Much later in the run, after Arbiter's Grounds, once you open the portal in the Mirror Chamber, you can simply warp to Snowpeak Mountain and head to Snowpeak Ruins. You can skip raising the mirror by opening the map, zooming in, then enabling portals; you will have to do this for the rest of the run if you do so now.
  • Arbiter's Grounds: If you're interested in doing Poe 1 Skip, you may:

    • Pull Chain
    • Small Key
    • Enter Right Room
    • Poe #1 Skip
    • Cross Sand + Push Block
    • Pull Chain for Chandelier
    • Stalfos with Bombs
    • Poe #4
    • Poe Scent
    • Back to Main Room
    • Pull Chain + Enter B1 Door
    • SK Chest
    • Redead (30R)
    • Poe #2
    • Main Room
    • Climb Broken Stairs to 2F
    • Rat Room Backwards (Skip SK)
    • Poe #3 Room Backwards (70R)
    • Poe #3
    • Back to Main Room
    • Through Poe Gate
    • Continue on as normal from here.
  • Ball and Chain: If you're feeling a bit riskier, instead of pushing down the block, go through the accessible door, then through the locked door in the next room. Freezard Clip on 2F, and then drop on the other side of the courtyard. Dig the small key here and continue on.

  • City in the Sky: If you fail Argorok Skip, don't forget to skip the Fan Activation trigger again after the Double Clawshots savewarp.

  • City in the Sky: Aeralfos Skip is an option you can do as well, but it's fairly tricky on Wii.
  • City in the Sky: If you failed Fan Activation Skip, you will have to go through the second half of the dungeon normally. From the small key room, clawshot around a lot, eventually reaching the other door in the room. In the next room, kill the baba head (ignore the base), and clawshot up the tower. If a pillar falls and you fall below it, you will have to reload the room. Out in the gardens, cross the peahats over and then back to the door not near a chest, then clawshot across to the center of the dungeon from there. You're in the 3rd floor room mentioned above now.
