This walkthrough uses the following notation throughout each quest.

  • This is a mandatory task that must be completed before any of the tasks listed below it.
    • This is an optional task that is listed at the earliest time that it becomes possible to complete.

There are many things that are immediately available to you in the Overworld before you even set foot in the Underworld. You may choose to take advantage of that fact early in your quest, or wait until you have grown a little stronger instead.
