List of Contents
After defeating Bilocyte inside the Thunderhead, head to Bug Rock and talk to Strich to start the minigame.
The goal of the minigame is to catch the bugs found on the left corner of your screen as fast as possible.
There are two levels of difficulty in Bug Heaven. Bug Beginner costs 20 Rupees to play and requires you to catch five bugs while Bug Wrangler costs 50 Rupees to play and requires you to catch 10 bugs.
See the table below to learn what bugs you need to collect per level!
|Bug Beginner||・Skyloft Mantis
・Sky Stag Beetle
|Bug Wrangler||・Faron Grasshopper x2
・Woodland Rhino Beetle
・Eldin Roller x2
It is recommended to use button-only controls when playing Bug Heaven. Using these controls allows you to quickly catch the bugs and finish the minigame in under two minutes.
Using the motion controls may cause unintentional movements, such as swinging down the net at a wrong angle, making the minigame more difficult.
Before starting the minigame, it is recommended to upgrade the Bug Net into the Big Bug Net. The upgrade comes in handy as it has a larger net, making it easy to catch bugs!
The bugs that you need to catch in the minigame are predetermined, so you only need to plan your run and catch the required bugs as fast as possible.
See the section below to learn how to complete the Bug Wrangler mode for Bug Heaven. Note that this is the same mode played during the Beddle's Missing Beetle side quest.
|Look to your left and you'll see a Sand Cicada near the ledge.|
|Go down the ledge and you should see a Woodland Rhino Beetle by the wall.|
|Go down the ledge to get Blessed Butterfly.|
|Go further ahead and get the Faron Grasshopper by the grassy area.|
|Get the Eldin Roller across the scaffolding.|
|Go through an entrance to get Faron Grasshopper and Eldin Roller by the spiderweb.|
|Exit the room via the narrow passage on the left of the wall.|
|Break the vases on the left to get the Skyloft Mantis.|
|Get the Lanayru Ant at the edge of the area.|
|If go you further ahead, you'll be able to see the Gerudo Dragonfly.|
If you have completed the minigame as part of Beedle's side quest, Strich will give back Beedle's missing beetle as a reward.
