“Unlock Hidden Pathways in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom to Expedite Progression towards Hyrule”

In the epic adventure game, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, skilled players can uncover a game-changing strategy to bypass a significant portion of the Great Sky Island tutorial. By leveraging this valuable secret, players can fast-track their journey to the enchanting realm of Hyrule. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to delve into the heart of the game and explore the wonders that await beyond the skies. Join the ranks of the savvy gamers who have mastered this remarkable shortcut in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

A Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player uses text boxes, a steer stick, and clipping to skip most of the Great Sky Island tutorial. The open world of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom offers players the freedom of completing objectives and shrines in a different order, and this player has skipped the tutorial itself.

Similar to the Great Plateau of its predecessor, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom's Great Sky Island is a lengthy tutorial zone. Players are introduced to the game's mechanics, abilities, and many items on the Great Sky Island before being able to explore Tears of the Kingdom's land of Hyrule or The Depths beneath it. Due to the tutorial nature of the Great Sky Island, most of the challenges on it are easier than the challenges players face on the main map and its many shrines. After much trial and error, one player has discovered a way to skip most of the tutorial zone to go straight to Hyrule and The Depths.

YouTuber Timber recently shared a video detailing the process they followed to escape Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom's Great Sky Island. The key moment is when the player receives their first Energy Cell. In Timber's case, they shoot a fan to activate the text box introducing the item. Once done correctly, it takes the player roughly 30 minutes of slow falling to reach the Hyrule landscape below. The video shows that this can be done in Tears of the Kingdom version 1.0 and 1.1.1, but only if a player relies on hard saves rather than autosave. It's currently unknown if this strategy works for the current version of the game. A player must already have the bow to accomplish this task, requiring that they play some of the tutorial before being able to leave the Great Sky Island.

What's the Benefit of Skipping the Great Sky Island?

Timber can access the Tears of the Kingdom Depths from the Great Sky Island by repeating the process and waiting longer before closing the text box. Failing to do the process correctly can result in Link being stuck in a void, or a soft lock that shows him repeating a fall animation. Ahead of leaving the Great Sky Island, Timber collected multiple rubies, shields, and some stamina and speed-boosting food. The YouTuber then created a small platform that Link could land on in The Depths, allowing him to go straight to The Demon King's Army boss battle from the Great Sky Island. After completing this fight, Timber fights Demon King Ganondorf, and Demon Dragon to highlight how quickly the game can be completed using this strategy.
