|How to Get the Heart Piece #6|
|How to Get||Find the bone bridge at Eldin Region and head right. Climb up the platforms and reach the ledge that lead you to a Piece of Heart.|
Before heading to Eldin Volcano, we recommend gearing yourself up with an Iron Shield which you can purchase from the Skyloft Bazaar.
|1. Follow the path and clear the way with bomb flowers.|
|2. Use bomb flowers to clear the blockage and let the lava flow.|
|3. Underground, help the Mogma by defeating the Bokoblins.|
|4. Obtain the Digging Mitts.|
|5. Cross the bridge.|
|6. Continue to climb the mountain defeating Bokoblins along the way.|
|7. Upon reaching the front of the Earth Temple, listen to the Mogma's conversation.|
|8. Find the 5 Key Pieces.|
|9. Enter the Earth Temple.|
Follow along the path to progress. In parts where lava might be in the way, wait for the lava to recede before continuing. You'll soon come across a bomb flower field. You may toss and roll the Bomb Flowers to destroy nearby rocks to open up different passages. These can also be used to damage enemies, and open up sections with cracks in the wall.
Grab a Bomb Flower and roll it across the bone bridge. This should let the lava flow and reveal a path.
Before crossing the bone bridge, climb up the nearby ledges. You can grab the Piece of Heart on a lower ledge just past a lone Pyrup.
Jump down into underground section. As you pace forward, a distressed Mogma will speak to you. Enter the chamber up ahead where several Bokoblin can be found. A continuous wave of them will keep appearing. We recommend taking advantage of the Spin Attack if you ever get overwhelmed with Bokoblins from all directions.
After clearing the chamber of all the Bokoblins, go back and speak to the Mogma again. He'll reward you with the Digging Mitts as thanks. Use your newly acquired Digging Mitts to uncover some updrafts so that you can climb up to the higher platforms.
At the summit will be a Bokoblin camp. Clear out the enemies here. Take another Bomb Flower and use it to topple over the wooden tower one of the Bokoblins is on. This will serve as a way for you to cross the nearby chasm.
There will also be a cave which has its entrance blocked with boulders. Clearing the path will grant you access to the Thrill Digger minigame.
Thrill Digger Guide
The Mogmas mention that the Key Pieces are buried nearby. You can use your dowsing ability to track them down.
|Key Piece Location||Details|
|You'll have to dig around to look for 5 pieces of the key that will open the door leading to the temple. When facing the temple, look to the dig spots on the left, one of them will contain the first piece.|
|Near where the Bomb Flowers are, you should spot a slope with a wooden tower at the bottom. Roll a Bomb Flower down and knock over the wooden tower to reveal a dig spot which contains the second piece of the key.|
|Back in front of where the temple doors are, you should find a pair of bomb flowers near the ledge. Try to roll them towards the bombable rocks about halfway down the ramp. Doing so will reveal the location of the third piece of the key.|
|As you slide down the long ramp in the northwest side of the volcano, take the rightmost path of the slide. While sliding down, stick to the left wall so that you can get on a ledge. From this ledge there will be two updrafts you'll have to use to get to another ledge across the chasm. The fourth piece of the key will be in the hole on this platform.|
|At the bottom of the slide, head forward and autojump across the platforms. From where the Stamina Flower is take the fork in the path. You'll find a Bomb Flower in the next room. Use this bomb flower to clear the rocks that will let the lava flow out of this room. Once you do, the lava will recede opening up the path ahead.
With the lava receded, take another bomb flower and roll it across the slope to blow up the rocks ahead. You'll uncover a small chamber with a hole where the fifth piece of the key will be.

As you descend to Eldin, it seems the volcano has become more active than usual. This causes you to fall out of the sky, but you'll be captured by Bokoblins.
Now unarmed and locked up, speak to Plats the Mogma in this room. He'll give you back your Mogma Mitts.
Burrow yourself out of this room and head towards the Volcano East monument.
Continue along the path. Plats will explain that you should avoid getting seen by the Bokoblins while you are still unarmed.
Move ahead and drop to the ledge on the left. There will be a burrow spot here. Use the Bomb Flowers to clear the rocks in the path then resurface on the other side.
Continue along the path burrowing when necessary, avoiding detection along the way. The first chest you'll get to will have the Gust Bellows.
You may now once again blow away bits of molten rock. Continue to move forward evading detection. The next chest you'll find will have the Clawshot.
You'll now be able to swing across above the mazes thanks to the Clawshot and the floating plants. Cross the lava and keep an eye on a moving stone platform.
Ride this stone platform till you get to another section on your right.
Follow the path sticking on the left side. You should be able to use your clawshot to climb up some vines here.
Use the bombs to topple over the Bokoblin Tower with a chest nearby. This chest will have the Whip.
From where the bombs were, cross the bridge and use the Whip to unearth the plant on the other side of the gate. You can then use your Clawshot to get to the other side.
Use the Bomb Flowers to the east to clear away the rubble and to remove the debris blocking the updraft.
Ride the updraft and make your way towards the direction of the Earth Temple. When you get near the camp, stick to the left side.
Drop onto the stone platform and then jump to your right where the bombs are. Grab a bomb and use it to topple over the Bokoblin tower to retrieve your slingshot.
Using the clawshots, climb back up the way you came and move towards the entrance of the Earth Temple. Stun the Bokoblin in the way with your Slingshot.
Make your way towards the northwest corner of the map. Once there, stun the Bokoblin on top of the watchtower and quickly burrow into the hole that was within the light's range.
On the other side of the hole is your Bomb Bag. Now that you have it back, make your way back to where Plats was.
Clear the path with a bomb and head towards the volcano's summit.
Once inside, you can be reunited with the Master Sword. Pull it out of the ground.
Head to the room on your right and ride the stone platform across the lava. Climb up the steps and jump across the gap on your left.
Continue along the path and you'll come across a chamber with the water plant. Thrust your sword into one and carry it with you.
Up ahead is a lava gap. Use the water fruit you carried to form a stone platform and jump across.
Jump down into the pit, take care of the enemies, and open the Blue Chest to get your Adventure Pouch back.
Climb up the ledges and use a bomb to clear the path back to the entrance.
Head to the lava room again. Ride the stone platform and head deeper east into the volcano's summit.
Here, cut the ropes on either side of the bridge, and the one on your right, to lower the bridge and make your way across.
Once inside the deepest chamber, obtain the Fire Dragon's song. If you've been following along with our guide, we have one Dragon's song left!
|List of Enemies||Strategy|
|Magma Spume||Since you cannot approach and attack, defeat it with a projectile using a bow or Skyward Strike.|
|Fire Keese||You can stab the end by knocking it down with the same shield attack as a normal Keese.|
|Pyrup||The quickest way to attack is to throw a bomb. Another option is to shoot it with a bow from a distance, or stun with a slingshot and then slash.|
|Chuchu||If you slash with a sword, it will become smaller and smaller, and if you slash it when it is the smallest, you can defeat it.|
|Wooden Shield Moblin||Wooden Shield Moblin becomes weaker when you slash the shield with a sword, and hit it when it disappears. Hit it with a shield attack.|
|Red Bokoblin (Archer)||Bokoblin (Archer) attacks from a long distance, so it is effective to use a bow and arrow here as well. Since it has 1 health, it can be defeated with a single blow. If you have a fire arrow, guarding with a wooden shield is not recommended.|
