I tried my hand at the last two shields, but these guardians seemed a bit more troublesome (or I got a bit unluckier with dodging). I decided to skip it for now, grabbed the ship, and mapped the open seas. I figured it'd also give me an extra level or two to take on those beasts.

At this point I'm stuck; I recovered the last two shields, but I'm not able to progress past the beast in this last shrine. Every time I vanquish him, I set off a trap and am told the gate isn't here. I'm guessing this means it's actually hidden somewhere else.

I did happen to discover a couple of useful clues from random travelers that help with the prophecy scroll. For those that missed it from one of the screenshots in the last post:
Hearken, Come, Iason!
For eight days from Saria
calls spring's sweetness.
Eight days, face not dawn
journey north five days
west three days to Dokia.
View the sacred shrine;
yea, the gates below are,
for fools, hell's gates.
The hints are that the spring wind blows south, and Saria is the old name for Medi's town. I really don't know which town is Medi's. Following the directions from the town I found her in doesn't seem correct since the directions go off the map at one point. I can only hope I stumble upon the last two keys and finally the gates of hell.
|Great! Medi, where's your town? (Medi: *shurg*)|
