DescriptionWing Dungeon by beating the Head Thwomp, you will obtain the second Essence of Time. As the dungeon is located in the woods it makes sense that this is called: "Ancient Wood".
Upon obtaining the second essence:
You got the Ancient Wood, an Essence of Time! It whispers only truth to closed ears from out of the stillness.
Ancient Wood It speaks only truth to closed ears.
|Japanese||もりのきおく (Mori no Kioku)|
|German||Holz der Antike|
The German translation means Wood as in a material not forest. “Wald der Antike” would have been more appropriate. The original Japanese version calls this essence: "Forest of Memory".
