Take Linken's Sword to Donova Snowden in Winterspring


You see, I have no idea how I ended up here. No one really knows—it's a secret to everybody! I just can't seem to remember anything...

These items you brought to me, though... I am remembering something.

My sword. I am supposed to strengthen it somehow, but I'm really not sure why. Sorry I can't tell you more, but I just don't remember!

Anyhoo, I do know where you can take it—Donova Snowden in Winterspring. You'll find her by the hot springs. She can temper the sword by the pools there.


My, my... So Linken did finally get around to sending me his sword.


Well, of course I can temper this sword. While I'm working, you can explain what took Linken so long to get this to me. He's not usually one to forget things...

The next quest, It's a Secret to Everybody, rewards Linken with Linken's Training Sword after some traveling, which is quite similar to how Link always starts off acquiring a weak sword. In a later quest, N [52] Linken's Sword, Linken upgrades his sword to Linken's Superior Sword. To get this upgraded sword, you have to push on a gravestone (N [52] A Grave Situation), as in the original Legend of Zelda.[2]
