The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Water Temple

The water temple is quite an interesting temple, taking place far in the sky where there is very little gravity. It is also very open, with the outer ring having two halves, one easily accessible, and the other harder to get to. There are only two levels on this entire temple, and the basement floor is so small it hardly counts. With only four terminals you should expect each one to be a challenge, but, truly, it isn’t very bad, so long as you are either quick or have a large battery pack.

There is only one terminal on the B1 level. To get to this terminal, you must drop down to the entrance on the west side of the central island. The challenge here is to use the flying platforms to get the ball on the east side of the room up to the hole near the entrance. This is especially challenging due to the fact that the floating platforms will start taking your energy once you move them. Once you get the ball up to where it is supposed to go, attach it to a flying platform to keep it in the hole, otherwise it will fall out. Then all that’s left is to use sidon’s ability for the water wheel.

On the first floor you will no doubt notice the spiral ring that surrounds the whole central island. It is most easily accessible through a few floating rocks on the west side of the island. On the first section of the spiral you will stand on, you will see a large ball in a puddle. Take this ball to the northwest side of that spiral section and clear the sludge off of the water bubble maker. Put both you and the ball into the bubbles that it will then make to find your way onto the next spiral section. Put the ball above the hole in the water. After that you will attach a flying platform on top of the water grate and pull it up. After this you just have to use the water wheel.

The next half of the outer ring is harder to get to. The way I did it was gliding to the area where the fountains are and then gliding over to it from there. From this section, there is one terminal north and one to the south.

The north terminal has you jump across a few floating ruins to a bubble maker. Use recall on a falling bubble and then ride it up to get on the next ring section. Now that you are up here, you can unlock the terminal by adding the two paddles near the water wheel onto the water wheel, and then making it run. You can then put a water bubble between the two electric connection points to make them conduct electricity back to the terminal. Then you just have to use sidon on the water wheel.

The south terminal wants you to defeat the fire like and then ascend through the space it leaves. Once you’re on this island, climb up to the spinning box and then use bullet time to shoot a splash fruit into the sludge inside, then go back up and shoot the switch in the middle. Then turn the water wheel.

Once you’ve turned on all of the faucets, you just have to fight the boss, Mucktorok. The first phase is rather simple, all you have to do is strike the boss with sidon’s water ability and then hit the Mucktorok when it is down. The second phase adds sludge to the battle. This phase is so much more annoying than the first phase. To beat this phase you just have to clear the muck around your ankles and beat that scourge before he escapes into the sludge. The boss makes sludge too quickly to make clearing the stage a viable option. The best option I found was to get up close and hit him before he got to the nearest sludge pile.
