Revealing the entrance to the Lanayru Mining Facility

The Power Generator is the source of energy for the mechanism that opens the entrance to the Lanayru Mining Facility in Skyward Sword.[1]

Location and Uses

The Power Generator is located in the northern portion of the Lanayru Desert. The generator will not work until the nearby power nodes are activated. Once these nodes are turned on, the three dials on the generator must be set correctly to reveal the mining facility from beneath the desert.[2]

The three Power Nodes are scattered around the north desert. Like the Power Generator, the nodes are only usable in the past time. To activate a power node, Link must stab his Sword inside and turn it to the left, then push in the node.[3] The water power node is located in the western side of the north desert, hidden by a bombable wall. The thunder power node is hidden inside a cave found in the north, also sealed by a bombable wall. The fire power node is located in a building to the southeast, by the stone cache. With all three nodes activated, Link must return to the Power Generator and set the three dials according to the locations of the power nodes.[4] If all three dials are set correctly, the Lanayru Mining Facility will surge from beneath the desert.
