Diamond Island Walkthrough

Diamond Island

1 Go down from the Ice Vellumental Mountain. In front of the Red Temple, step onto the rainbow-colored Magic Circle. Rainbow-colored Magic Circles give Olivia the power to transform into any Vellumental. Transform into the Earth Vellumental to lower the Red Temple and gain access to it. Go inside the Red Temple to start the Trial of Power.

Inside the Red Temple, check the statue towards the back wall, to reveal a small magic circle in the center of the room. Step onto the small magic circle to begin the Trial of Power.

Trial of Power

1 Trial of Power - Small and Medium Blocks.pngEnlarge Trial of Power: Stage 1
Jump to break varying sizes of Blocks, with varying numbers of required hits, within 30 seconds.

Small Blocks require 1 hit to destroy.
Medium Blocks require 3 hits to destroy.
Large Blocks require 6 hits to destroy.
After completing each stage, step on the small magic circle that appears, to proceed to the next stage.
2 Trial of Power - Excellent Hammer Hit.pngEnlarge Trial of Power: Stage 2
Use your Hammer to destroy varying sizes of Blocks, with varying numbers of required hits, within 50 seconds. Press B to charge your Hammer, then press A to swing it. To save time, don't charge your Hammer when hitting small Blocks.

Scoring an Excellent hit will count for 3 normal Hammer swings.
3 Trial of Power - Hammering the Nail.pngEnlarge Trial of Power: Final Stage
Objective: smash the giant nail into the floor within 40 seconds. Wait for the steps to appear, go to the top of the giant nail, and the stage's buttons and controls will be explained. For best results, chain jump combos in the beginning, then finish it off with Excellent Hammer hits.

Press B to charge, then A to swing the Hammer.
Press A to jump, then as you land, A again to chain attacks (max 4).

4 Trial of Wisdom: Stage 2
Works just like Stage 1, but with a more difficult question.
5 Trial of Wisdom - Mushroom LogicsTrial of Wisdom: Final Stage
The final stage is a logic puzzle. There will be either two Toads telling the truth or one liar, or two liars and one Toad telling the truth. Speak with Toads A, B, and C and judge the odd Toad out.

Trial of Courage

1 Head east to the Green Temple and stand in the rainbow-colored Magic Circle. Surround it with water using the Water Vellumental, and freeze the water with the Ice Vellumental. Once the water is frozen, enter the Green Temple.
2 Trial of Courage.png
Complete the Trial of Courage.
3 Trial of Courage - Stage 1.pngEnlarge Trial of Courage: Stage 1
Press A to pull a rope and drop an iron weight from above. Once the weight is below where the arrow is pointing, press A again to stop it from falling. Be careful not to stop it too late, as it will flatten Mario and you will have to restart the trial.

The items are measured from the bottom, so even if the top of the weight is slightly above the line, it will be counted as a pass.
4 Trial of Courage - Stage 2.pngEnlarge Trial of Courage: Stage 2
Works just like Stage 1, but with the arrow pointing lower and closer to Mario.
5 Trial of Courage - Stage 3 Thwomp.pngEnlarge Trial of Courage: Final Stage
Works just like Stage 2, but the item is a Thwomp that falls faster. Pull the rope when the bottom of the Thwomp passes the line.
6 Courage Orb.png
After completing the Final Stage, get the Courage Orb in the next room, and exit the Green Temple.
7 Return to the submarine and head to Sea Tower.
