Eldin Province

Mailman Skips

Mailman Skip going to Eldin

It is possible to skip the mailman trigger on the way to Eldin twilight. To do this stand next to the green splodge shown in the video, then throw the boomerang ahead and LJA when the boomerang is OoB. This works because the boomerang is over a void OoB.

Mailman Skip coming out of Eldin

Discovered by Dragonbane0 & SVA

If you skip the first mailman on your way to Eldin Twilight, the same mailman will appear This mailman trigger can be skipped by simply jumping across the gap using a LJA. Backflip off Epona past the crack and stand near to the dark splodge.
Don't aim too far to the right or you will jump into the void.

Kakariko Gorge

Stamp Chest LJAs

With some boomerang LJAs, you can get the stamp chest without needing the dominion rod.

Double Heart Piece LJA

By standing near the vines at the edge of the cliff, you can LJA over to the heart piece chest in the western part of Kakariko Gorge. You can also target the heart piece on top of the other stone pillar to get that one at the same time.


Dash Cancel across roof before abandoned house

After leaving the hotel you can make use of dash cancels to optimize dashing across the roofs. After climbing up the roof, dash once and cancel it with a B-Attack. Do another B-Attack afterwards and then immediately dash again.
Wolf Link will dash right before the ledge causing the dash animation to get canceled and allowing to immediately dash again.

Wolf Bombhouse Skip

Discovered by Venick

Similar to TPSD you can skip the bombhouse segment in Eldin Twilight by killing the bug before it enters the bombhouse. This requires really optimal movement and a precise jump and is not recommended for actual runs for now.
Stand between the fifth and sixth step and sidehop left on the railing. Sidehop again on the fence and position yourself like in the video. Now jump onto the other side and jump op the small ledge.
You will be able to kill the bug before it enters the house.

Silver Rupee without Bombarrows

Similar to TPSD you can get the Silver rupee without bomb arrows by using Gale and bombs.

Silver Rupee with Bomb Arrows

Strat by Giradam

In All Dungeons, you usually arrive at Kakariko during the daytime, so Talo will see Wolf Link and waste time. Instead, you can get the silver rupee from the ground with bomb arrows.

Death Mountain

Goron Mines Entrance

The normal way to enter for TPHD is using the Gorons to get up as intended until the last one.
Go up the mountain, sidehop through the steam, get hit by the Gorons and then use the second to last Goron.
Climb onto him and angle urself towards the wall on the left to get up on the ledge. Grab the three yellow rupees to your left with a sidehop and go up to the entrance.

Early Elevator Access

LJA method

Discovered by LogitechSDAZ, Erodyne

With a clip out of bounds, it's possible to reach the Death Mountain elevator room from below, saving time over climbing normally.

  1. Midna jump up to the ledge and transform into human

  2. Go into the corner and walk slightly left into the ledge, so that Link climbs as far right as possible.

  3. While targeting, wait for Link to stand fully from the edge and raise his shield, then perform a target roll (ZL + A) and immediately hold up on the control stick so that Link will jump when he reaches the edge. Holding up too late will result in a neutral drop out of bounds

  4. After beginning to hold up, mash B to pull sword and get a jumpslash right after jumping to land out of bounds.

  5. Roll up-left to avoid the Goron, then LJA as shown in the video.

As Wolf (non-LJA method)

Discovered by Dragonbane & Taka

After clipping in step 4 on the LJA method above, transform to wolf immediately. Then B-attack up-left to avoid the Goron's attack. From here, aim directly towards the vertical pipe and dash off the ledge to land in the elevator room. This is about 6s slower than the LJA method.

Elevator Escape

With Early Elevator Access, it is possible to ride the elevator up before the Goron guarding it will move. There are three known ways to bypass the Goron.

By Savewarping

Simply savewarp to spawn at the room's normal entrance.

A normal savewarp will clear any Text Displacement because it goes to the title screen. However, Text Displacement is preserved by a Cave of Shadows "savewarp" (going through Cave of Shadows) because it does not go to the title screen.

With the Spinner

After gaining control in the elevator, press the spinner button, then press A once Link has ridden forwards into the Goron to get off and get teleported past the Goron.

By Transforming

Discovered by bewildebeest

Transform somewhere in the corner shown and facing the wall so that Link begins vibrating. Hold slightly down to make Link walk slowly into the wall and vibrate further into the Goron. Press Z to transform, then hold the control stick towards the Goron and press A to roll (frame perfect).

Quick Death Mountain Exit

Discovered by Dragonbane

After ooccooing out of Goron Mines there is a lot of backtracking to Kakariko. It is faster by 2 - 3 seconds to LJA acroos the pit instead of going down the normal way.
Stun the Goron before doing the LJA or he will knock you off.

Faster Goron

Discovered by Dragonbane

It is possible to skip having to wait for the Goron to knock you off the cliff with a setup then rolling straight off.

Eldin Field

Kakariko Cliff Heart Piece LJAs

You can do a boomerang LJA to get to the Kakariko cliffs heart piece without blowing up the top rock. Just stand near the left side of the ledge, aim the boomerang above the top-middle of the rock, and perform the LJA when the boomerang is coming back to you. Make sure to do the LJA before the boomerang passes the rock again on the way back.
