How to Get Every Aloalo Island Entry

As per usual, there are three main paths to take through this Variant Dungeon that lead to different bosses and mechanics.

  1. LEFT PATH: Let Matsya fish and don’t heal the Lala.
  2. LEFT PATH: Don’t let Matsya fish and heal the Lala.
  3. LEFT PATH: Let Matsya fish and give him bait from the sand pile on the right.

  5. MIDDLE PATH: Continue as normal, ignoring the flowers.
  6. MIDDLE PATH: Step into the flowered bushes and scare off both sets of rats.
  7. MIDDLE PATH: Kill the treant enemy before the caterpillars and then kill the caterpillars on the sigil. Do not hit the Miqo’te on the last pull before the boss.
  8. MIDDLE PATH: Kill the treant enemy before the caterpillars and then kill the caterpillars on the sigil. Attack the Miqo’te before the final boss.

How to Get the Aloalo Island Secret Boss

The 12th Aloalo Island route leads you to a secret boss along the right path of the dungeon. To reach this boss and unlock the 12th and final Conservation Record, head right when starting the dungeon and continue normally until you reach the fairy.

Deny the fairy all three times. Continue down the new path, ignoring the treasure chests, until you reach the statues of the sparrow, whale, and turtle. Next, it’s time to perform the rituals that unlock the secret boss.

Ritual #1

For the whale ritual, say “O messenger from beyond the horizon, hear me.” Once the statue begins to glow, circle around the statues twice, heading left all the way until you end up back at the whale and then going back the other way the second time. Finally, perform a /dance for the whale.

Ritual #2

For the turtle ritual, say “O wayfarer of land and sea, hear me.” Then, circle around the statues twice, only going to the right past the sparrow this time. Finally, end the ritual with a /bow for the turtle.

Ritual #3

For the sparrow ritual, say “O dancer of the skies, hear me.” Then, do /blowkiss for the bird and circle around the statues to the left passing the turtle, whale, and sparrow. End the ritual by performing a /dance for the sparrow.

After performing the rituals, a path will open. Follow this path and defeat all the enemies until you find a bag containing statues of the sparrow, whale, and turtle. Further ahead, you need to place the statues in the correct spots. The sparrow statue should be placed first closest to where you came from, followed by the whale and then the turtle. If you did everything correctly, you’ll unlock the secret boss and earn the 12th Aloalo Island record.
