Earth Vellumental Temple Interior

1 Earth Vellumental Temple Door - Select a Stone.pngEnlarge
At the entrance to the Earth Vellumental Temple, use all four acquired Shell Stones with the door to open it.
Where to Find All Shell Stones
2 Inside the temple, continue along the path until reaching the image of the Earth Vellumental. Hit it several times with the Hammer to knock it down.
3 Jump across the platforms to continue. In the next room, you'll start a battle with 12 Koopa Troopas.
If you fall off the platforms, you will take damage, but there is a Heart to fully restore Mario at the end of the room, so you will be fine as long as you don't completely run out of health.
4 Go down and to the right, and hop along the platforms to find two doors on the right side of the room. Before going in, hit the ? Block to get Shiny Boots. Go in the door currently accessible to you, and you'll find a ? Block with a Shiny Hammer.
5 Earth Vellumental Temple - Hole in the sliding blocksEnlarge
The next step is hard to find, so keep your eyes peeled!
While walking along in the room, avoid being pushed off by the sliding blocks and get past the three sliding blocks with a face in the middle.
6 Earth Vellumental Temple - Enter the sliding panelEnlarge
The next sliding block after that spot has a gap you can enter on its right side. You can check you're at the right block by looking at the wall to its right, there should be a gap visible. Once inside, walk right to go up the slope and find a hidden area with a door.
7 Go through the door and smash the cracked rock. You'll start a battle with 8 Koopa Troopas. Continue ahead while timing jumps to avoid the fire traps.
8 Earth Vellumental Temple - Stay safe in the gapsEnlarge
Ahead, you'll hit another cracked rock, which will cause a giant turtle shell to come sliding down Indiana Jones-style. Watch the holes in the turtle shell and line Mario up so that he can hide in one of the holes and let the turtle shell roll on ahead.
Don't worry about filling in the non-bottomless hole in the wall while running – you can deal with it afterwards!
9 You'll get a Max Up Heart, increasing Mario's Max HP by 20. Continue into the next room and pull off the seal on the cylindrical platform to the left to continue up.
This is a room you've been in before, but don't jump down until you have removed the seal or you'll have to go all the way back again.
10 Go into the mouth of the statue to continue. Walk onto the ledge to fight the boss, the Earth Vellumental.
11 Earth Vellumental Temple - Dancing Earth Vellumental OliviaEnlarge
After defeating the Earth Vellumental, you'll get the Earth Bibliofold, which will allow Olivia to fold into the shape of the Earth Vellumental. Take the Pipe to go back to the entrance of the Earth Vellumental Temple.
12 Head back to Overlook Mountain. At the peak, you'll be able to use Olivia's new power with the Earth Vellumental Circle to gain access to Overlook Tower.

Tips and Strategies

Koopa Troopas

If you can arrange all the Koopa Troopas in a line, one jump will send the first one sliding, and knock all of them out without needing to time Perfect jumps. On the other hand, their shells will protect them from the Hammer, which will still deal damage but won't be able to knock them out in one hit, so try to arrange them in lines if possible.

Boss Strategy Guide

Earth Vellumental

Earth Vellumental Temple Boss Battle
The Earth Vellumental battle is focused on attacking the boss's vulnerable areas (limbs+tail) with your hammer, then using the 1000-Fold Arms to inflict massive damage after it retreats into its shell (which happens by hitting its tail). For a full boss battle strategy, see the guide below.
