    Apparently it wants me to jump off a cliff into lava. I've been looking for key parts for about an hour now. Honestly I preferred collecting the light tears much more.

    The point of Dowsing is to take you in the general direction to the next exit or item. It doesn't show you EXACTLY the path to take, you have to find that out yourself.

    Yeah, I know, that's why I've been looking for over an hour. Funny I can find heart pieces faster than the actual items I need to advance the story in this game...

    I've never used the Heart Dowsing, never needed it. Dowsing is a really good system, works perfectly. What part are you at? (Put in spoilers).

    Not the heart dowsing, I meant I stumble upon the actual heart pieces that give you extended life before I can find the keys. I'm at the volcano.

    I like how this thread doesn't say Zelda once... If I didn't know anything about Zelda, I would have no idea what's going on.

    People act like this is the only game for Wii now...

    Ah the Volcano keys, yeah that was a little hard but it's still simple to find them. Just remember that there is a lot of slopes you need to slide down.

    If you havent already been through this area yet...dont waste time trying to blow away those rocks near the save point after you cross the bridge,because you cant. Your Dowser will go crazy like something is behind and it is but you cant get there that way...hint..it involves a slope that you slide down...

    Pft, the dowsing makes the game a bit too easy. Point sword - run, loot, repeat.
    The volcano was ok, because you cant just run in a straight line. Still way too easy though.

    Gambia, The
    It's alright. It's not incredibly useful for common items, but for things you don't want to miss (Goddess Cubes or fetch items) it's rather nice. Together with the Gossip Stone it really helps preventing frustration if anything should be unclear at one point.
