After finding the Goddess Harp in Zelda Skyward Sword, Link can begin finding Goddess Walls near groups of Blessed Butterflies. After seeing these murals, Link can draw a shape on them to obtain an item. Additionally, to get one of the game’s heart pieces, players must figure out a series of Goddess Wall symbols and draw them.
What shapes do I need to draw on the Goddess Walls in Zelda Skyward Sword?
For regular Goddess Walls in Skyward Sword, players can draw one of a number of different symbols to obtain items. These are:
- Arrow: 15 Arrows
- Circle: 15 Bombs
- Heart: 10 Hearts
- Hexagon: 10 Rupees
- Hourglass: 10 Hearts
- Triforce: 3 Fairies
If players draw anything other than the shapes above, they’ll only get three hearts in return. Once a Goddess Wall has been drawn upon, Link can’t use it again for a while, so make sure to make it count.
There’s also a series of Goddess Walls that lead to a heart piece. Once Link learns the Farore’s Courage song, Gorko will point him toward a Goddess Wall in the Sealed Grounds. Both Gorko and a Gossip Stone will give Link the following hints that tell him which picture to draw:
- Gorko: “Arrow in Repose… Ye who yearns to strike targets from afar, draw this shape so that it may be known.”
- Gossip Stone: “Rumor has it that drawing an arrow shape on certain walls will cause an object of similar shape to appear.”
- Gorko: “Closed Circle… Ye who hungers for destructive force, draw this shape so that it may be known.”
- Gossip Stone: “Oddly enough, it seems that drawing a circle on certain strange walls will produce something round.”
- Gorko: “Life’s Crimson Vessel… Ye who longs for the source of life, draw this shape so that it may be known. Do so, and from the heavens shall fall a rain of life’s essence.”
- Gossip Stone: “They say drawing a symbol of love upon certain walls will heal your wounds.”
- Gorko: “Glimmering Hexagon… Ye who seeks great riches, draw this shape so that it may be known.”
- Gossip Stone: “Apparently, if you draw a symbol of money on certain walls, you can make an easy fortune.”
- Gorko: “…The three… …ngles… …the Tri…ce… …and…”
- Gossip Stone: “They say it’s possible to summon Fairies by drawing three triangles upon certain walls.”
