The Forest of Time is a recurring location in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Features and Overview

Oracle of Ages

The Forest of Time is the region in Labrynna where Link begins his quest. The first person he meets is Impa, who was sent by Princess Zelda to look for Nayru.[3] It is in this area that Link meets Nayru, Ralph, and Veran, the antagonist of the game, for the first time. Link also witnesses the possession of Nayru by Veran here.

Nayru's House is also located in a Tree in the northeastern corner of the Forest of Time. During his quest Link will pass through this area to reach Yoll Graveyard and Rolling Ridge.

In the southwestern corner of the Forest is a rocky area where Link will meet Tingle. However, to reach Tingle, Link will require Ricky's assistance, as his path is blocked by holes and cliffs. Tingle will give Link the Island Chart which is necessary if Link is to reach Crescent Island.[4] Later on, Tingle will upgrade Link's Seed Satchel, allowing him to carry 50 Mystical Seeds.[5] In a Linked Game of Oracle of Seasons, Link will receive a secret which can be told to Tingle, who will then upgrade his Satchel again, allowing him to carry a maximum of 99 Seeds.

Breath of the Wild

The Forest of Time is a wooded area northeast of the Great Plateau in Breath of the Wild. A monster-infested camp is situated toward the south in a small clearing. A Chuchu hides inside one of two Barrel at the camp.

A wooden Treasure Chest containing 10 Arrows sits next to a pair of crates within the camp, adjacent to two decayed Wagons. A metallic Treasure Chest containing a bundle of five Fire Arrows sits atop a platform in a clearing in the south of the Forest. A Barrel containing a Roasted Bird Drumstick and two Bomb Barrels can also be found on the platform. A stone Treasure Chest containing an Amber can be found atop a tower at the northern base of the small plateau at the southern portion of the Forest.
