Turn The Gears In Two Directions To Sove The Gimmick
The gimmick inside Final Trial can be solved by turning the gear in the center in either direction. For convenience, this page is described clockwise/counterclockwise from the entrance. Note that the map may be reversed depending on Link's position.
The Color of The Gear Changes Depending On The Direction of Rotation
The color of gears and other internal gimmicks changes according to the direction in which the gears are turned. The color changes to blue when turned clockwise from the entrance, and to orange when turned counterclockwise.
Guardian Appears Each Time The Terminal Is Activated
|Activated 1||Guardian Scout I ×4|
|Activated 2||Guardian Turret ×1|
|Activated 3||Guardian Skywatcher ×1|
After each terminal is activated, Guardian will appear in the central area. As the Guardian gradually gets stronger and stronger, if you are not careful, you may get knocked out. It'd be better to prepare some Guardian Resist equipment.
It Is Recommended To Prepare Ancient Arrow
When the second and third terminals are activated, a Guardian Turret and a Guardian Skywatcher will appear. Guardian Skywatcher is particularly troublesome because it is difficult to attack at close range, so it is recommended to have several "Ancient Arrows" that can be used take it down with a single shot by hitting the enemy's eyeballs.

Put The Ball Into The Pipe At The Right Time
Put the ball into the pipe in the back. Press the switch when the pocket comes to open the door that holds the ball. The ball will come out again and again, so it's fine if you miss. After put the ball in, change the direction of rotation to make it pass through the pipe.

Push The Switch Up With Cryonis
Once inside, use Cryonis to push up the switch in the center so that the device will start to rotate. Turn it to clockwise (blue) and use the foothold to advance to the back.

Move The Iron Ball On The Switch To Turn The Faucet

|5||Stop the rotating propeller with Stasis and move to the terminal.|
Connect The iron bars To Rotate The Gears
First, take out the iron bars and connect them together as shown in the image above. There is no problem in connecting these bars from any direction, but it is easier to connect from the door side.
Wind Direction Changes Depending On The Rotation Direction
Inside the Wind Room, the direction of the wind changes depending on the direction of rotation after the gears are jointed. First, use the ladder to climb to the top of the foothold, then turn clockwise (blue) to jump toward the entrance side.
