Twilight Princess: Notable Events and Route Deviations
« on: November 03, 2009, 11:32:54 AM »
List of all notable game/overworld events that impact the progression of the game.

This is a list of (hopefully) every important event required to complete Twilight Princess normally that I'm dumping here. I've omitted a few events (such as the first King Bublin Fight) that don't appear to change the inventory or progress the game.

Notes: The King Bublin I fight trigger can be walked around. Early Laranyu can be done after Kakariko Twilight is cleared.



Back In Time Equiped Warp Subroute
Start After Event: None. Earliest known locations to start are
-Ordon Ranch, before second round of herding
-Mayor Bo's House
-Faron Woods South Entrance, post-twilight but before the completion of the Forest Temple
Skipped Events: Finishing the Forest Temple*
 Start: After Faron Twilight is cleared
 Save in Faron Woods,
 Head to Ordon Bridge
 Do Back in Time Equipped
 Fight King Bublin I

Notes: Tests have only been done with BiT Save during EMS A subroute. Subroute ends in a dead end for now. If Kakariko Twilight is cleared before Opening Kakariko Gorge Portal, the event is permanently skipped. In theory, it may be possible to enter and beat Goron Mines early with BiT Save without EMS A. More testing is needed



Early Access to Master Sword Subroute
Start after event: Open South Faron Portal, though it's more practical to get the vessel of light first
Skip Events: None

 Use Howling Stone to open Lost Woods
 Solve Golem Puzzle



Early Master Sword Subroute A
Start after: Early Access to Master Sword Subroute
Skip Events: Goron Sumo Wrestling (EMS breaks the event, making it impossible to win), Goron Mines, Obtaining Reekfish Scent

 Obtain Master Sword
 Return to Normal Route at Faron Twilight: Open North Faron Portal, Leave after Getting Iron Boots
 SB: Enter Laranyu Twilight Early
 SB: Enter Lakebed Temple Early to obtain Oocco
 Return to Normal Route at Laranyu Twilight: Fight Kakaroc, Leave after Laranyu Twilight: Cleared
 SB: Steal Iza's Bomb Bag, fill with water bombs
 Get Goron Bomb Bag
 Return to Normal Route
 
Notes: Goron Mines can be entered later with the spinner. Early Master Sword causes several game events to 'break'



Early Master Sword Subroute B
Start after: Early Access to Master Sword Subroute
Skip Events: None (this subroute was created to obtain Bombs/Bow before Saving Midna)
Important: If the Goron Mines can be entered without wrestling Cor Goron that doesn't involve the spinner, this will be obsolete

 Save warp, deathwarp to return to Normal Route, leave after Goron Sumo Wrestling
 Obtain Oocco from Goron Mines (for easy access)
 SB: Early Sacred Grove as a human
 Obtain Master Sword
 Return to Normal Route

Notes: On the Wii, Early Sacred Grove as a human is only possible with a bomb boost. This is the only Subroute that can temporarily escape from the Midna's Desperate Hour subquest.



Endless Midna's Desperate Hour Subroute
Start after: Early Master Sword Subroute B
Skip Events: None
Important: Do not obtain Oocco from Lakebed Temple, or else it will disappear after the temple is complete.

 Optional: Obtain Bow (for much easier Bublin II fight)
 SB: Early Lake Hylia
 Return to Normal Route until after event Clear Lakebed Temple
 SB: Use Goron Mines Oocco to warp away from the Midna Barriers around Hyrule Castle

Notes: Midna cannot charge attack or warp. Also, Midna's Lament will play continuously in almost every situation. Entering Hyrule Field will force the time into a continuous night, and except for the enemies in North Hyrule, it's devoid of enemies. From here, your limited in what you can do. You can reach Gerudo Desert provided that you haven't warped the cannon before clearing Lakebed Temple. If you beat Arbiture's Grounds, you lose Oocco, which traps you in the Mirror Chamber.



White Midna Sequence Oddity
Requires: Master Sword Obtained, Bomb Bag Obtained (and filled with waterbombs)
Starts After: Giant Bug Fight, but before collecting the final tear and Clearing Laranyu Twilight
Skips: Midna Warping Disabled

 Clear Lakebed Temple
 Clear Laranyu Twilight

Notes: Can progress through the game without Saving Midna until after Palace of Twilight is cleared. No known major event issues occur while Midna is in this state.

Re: Twilight Princess: Minimum Game Completion Requirements
« Reply #2 on: March 23, 2010, 02:42:18 PM »
So I have been playing Twilight Princess more and I think I have learned the basic requirements needed to beat the game not using Back in Time glitch through the moon jump AR code.  I'm not sure how much of this is already general knowledge of the game but I guess I will post it anyway.

1. Get Lantern to burn webs and needed to go through east/west room in Hyrule Castle
2. Talo and Monkey must be rescued to activate 2nd goats
3. 2nd goats required to tame Epona and activate castle twilight
4. Castle twilight needed to obtain wolf senses
5. Must talk to Midna when leaving Ordon Springs to get Midna on Z/Up
6. Battle S. Faron Twilt Messengers to get dark energy attack
7. Master Sword needed to reflect Puppet Zelda's orbs, turn into wolf to defeat Beast Gannon
8. Faron Tears required to make gold wolf appear
9. Learn hidden skill 1 from gold wolf to defeat Ganon in the final battle
10. Eldin Tears needed to make rock fall in Death Mountain to be warped to Zora's Domain
11. Eldin Tears required to tame Epona. If Epona is not tamed, game will freeze after Beast Ganon is defeated.
12. Warp rock from death mountain required to get Lanayru vessel of light
13. Lanayru tears needed to enter Hyrule Castle
14. King Bulbin 4 must be defeated to get small key to enter Hyrule Castle
15. Various enemies when first entering castle must be defeated to open doors in castle
16. If bow not in inventory, the only way to go is lighting the torches and fighting the armored lizards
17. Small key from Aeralfos (fight could be skipped) and big key
18. Defeat enemies leading to Ganon.  Darknut fight could be skipped
19. Beat Ganon

Estimated Completion Time with Min Requirements Only: ?

Three comments:

1: Great resource, just like WW has the flags for barrier, TP has its own flags that need to be hit for its own progression at times.

2: In the Raid Ordon Route Event, you have as a sub event turning wolf, however, isn't this the case when you trigger the Ilia CS in the Ordon Spring on Ordon Day 3? Might just be misplaced, might be that it actually is after you enter Faron Woods properly (instead of in the Ilia CS). This is TP, so anything can happen.

3: During the Raid Ordon Route Event, you get Ordon Shield, then Ordon Sword. However, the Ordon Sword isn't present until a specific trigger. I thought this trigger was getting Ordon Shield, but a very interesting one-frame jump attack, and further evasion of the Midna Text that happens after you get the Shield showed me that this isn't the case- the Midna text AFTER Ordon Shield is what triggers the Ordon Sword to appear.
Went, got Ordon Shield, evaded the Midna Text trigger, escaped the house. Rusl CS occurred normally, dashed over, dug in, and the sword wasn't there. After checking to see if the Ordon Spring Portal trigger was active (it was not) and the Midna Text trigger at the entrance to Faron Woods (it was active still), I went back and got the Midna Text inside the house where you get Ordon Shield, then went to get the Ordon Sword. Lo and behold, it had appeared. Weird game sometimes.

2) You're right that I overlooked the first proper wolf transformation (visiting Ilia). However, I'm not entirely sure that going through the faron barrier the first time doesn't transform you.

3) Interesting observation. Added that in.

I'd like to point out that this list is quite old. I wrote it up well before people were serious about poking through the game on emulator (pretty much all of this came from memory from testing things on console) so there could be more things missing.
