The starting area in Death’s Door, the Hall of Doors, serves as the hub for the game. While there aren’t any enemies, there are many Shiny Things to find both here and in the tutorial area, the Grove of Spirits. Our Death’s Door guide will show you how to find the Shiny Things in these starter areas.

The Hall of Doors and Grove of Spirits has five Shiny Things (and no shrines). You can find the secrets below.

After you grab the bomb ability in the Hall of Doors, there are two unlit lanterns near the path back to the main part of the hall. Light these with the fire ability to access the Ancient Door Scale Model.

In the Hall of Doors, use the hookshot on the lampposts near the center area with the desks. Hookshot from pole to pole on islands to get the Modern Door Scale Model.
