Early Sky Keep

This glitch is not speedrun legal, as it requires a premade file.


Description

Early Sky Keep is a glitch using BiT that allows you to open Sky Keep on any file. This requires the use of a premade file.


How To

The glitch requires two things to be setup ahead of time:

  • First, you must have a file that has already obtained the Stone of Trials. It does not matter which slot it is in, although slot 3 is the easiest.
  • The file you want to open Sky Keep on must be saved at a save prompt, or be a New Adventure or Hero Mode file.

With this setup, activate BiT. You must now load the Stone of Trials into BiT. Obtain a Heart, Stamina Fruit, or Rupee while the file with the Stone of Trials is selected (or if that file is in slot 3, you should not select a file). Now go to the statue where you place the Stone of Trials and stand just out of its range. Select the file you wish to open Sky Keep on, press start, and after about 1 second place the Stone of Trials in the statue.

If done correctly, the Sky Keep opening cutscene will play on the file you just loaded, and you will spawn next to the statue in Skyloft with all the other information from your file intact.


Effects and Caveats

With this glitch, you can skip everything from opening the Gate of Time to entering Sky Keep, thereby bypassing all of the Song of the Hero quest and the Goddess's Silent Realm.

One caveat: while this glitch can be performed to open Sky Keep on a New Adventure or Hero Mode file, you will quickly dead end as Skyloft is set to a state where your loftwing cannot be rescued. Thus you will be stuck on Skyloft. If you wish to use this glitch, you should activate it from a save prompt after rescuing your loftwing.
