After earning The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD’s second Sacred Flame, you’ll need to find the third Trial Gate and Din’s Silent Realm. That’ll let you explore a new area, the Volcano Summit.

In this Skyward Sword HD Din’s Silent Realm and Volcano Summit walkthrough, we’ll guide you through Eldin Volcano’s Silent Realm and the Volcano Summit area with tips on finding items, rupees, Goddess Cubes, and collectibles and completing every quest and side quest. We’ll walk you collecting the 15 Tears of Din you’ll need to earn the Fireshield Earrings. Those allow you to reach the Volcano Summit area. There, you’ll need to quench the thirst of three frog statues, and we’ll show you how, including how to find a big container Water Dragon Faron’s vessel.

Eldin Volcano’s Silent Realm is much more spread out than the other two you’ve done, but the same rules apply.

From the Volcano Ascent bird statue, head east and ride the updraft to the northeast corner of the map. Continue east and through the room that used to set you on fire — you’re safe with your new earrings.

Head through the tunnel to the Volcano Summit.

Save at the bird statue inside.

Volcano Summit frog statues

Drop off the ledge to the north, and then hop across the lava to the left (west). On the other side, turn right (north) and follow the ledge up.

Speak to Gorko and read the plaque for your clue — quench my thirst.

Head south again and take the tunnel leading west.

Outside, there’s a waterfall and pond to your left. Equip an Empty Bottle and scoop some water.

Take this back to the frog statue, and pour it on its tongue to put out the flames.

Past the extinguished flames, there’s a Gossip Stone on your right.

Go get another bottle of water from the same pond. When you come back, Clawshot up to the vines on the left. Hop across the ledges until you’re right above the frog statue.

Head left (west) from the bird statue. Climb into the window in the tower wall, and Clawshot over to the vines on the stone pillar and deal with the Lizalfos there. Clawshot to the ledge to the south to find a Goddess Cube.

Head back to the north, and use the bird statue to return to the sky.

Faron Woods

Fly to Faron Woods and drop into the Floria Waterfall bird statue.

Head east through the tunnel and speak with the Water Dragon Faron. Fi will call in Scrapper to pick up Faron’s Water Basin.

Go back to the bird statue, return to the sky, and fly back to Eldin Volcano.

Protect Scrapper

You’ll drop into Eldin Volcano at the Volcano Entry bird statue. And now it’s escort mission time — you have to lead Scrapper back to the Volcano Summit.

Eldin Volcano is full of Bokoblin Archers, so equip your bow and take them out from a distance as soon as you see them. Dispatch all of the enemies you encounter quickly — if anything attacks Scrapper, you’ll have to back up and replay sections.

You’re going to retrace your steps from your first visit to Eldin Volcano. Head north up the sandy ramp on the west side of the map, continue up the second sandy ramp, and then across the tower-bridge you created your first time here. From there, you’ll continue northeast and into the crater.

Lead Scrapper all the way back to the Inside the Volcano bird statue, and he’ll extinguish the flames for you, opening the path to the Fire Sanctuary.
