Forums: Index Help desk Tears of Farore Glitch-Help!

Need help. When I failed the quest of searching the Tears of Farore, and tried to start again, on the floor glowing mark, I could activate the sword by pressing A, but when I tried to insert the sword it will do nothing. I pressed the A button and moved the remote in any direction and nothing happened. Is this a glitch or do I need to do something to reactivate the Sacred Realm?


There's nothing special to reactivate it, you should be able to stab the ground just like you did the first time. I just watched my brother do this and it reminded me how difficult and unintuitive this action is. I believe you have to point the front of the Wiimote upward and thrust it down towards the ground. If you try to hold it the way Link does on screen, you'll be pointing it in the opposite direction and it won't register. Just keep trying it different ways and it should activate eventually.--FierceDeku 20:20, March 5, 2012 (UTC)
