The Rod of Seasons is an item in Oracle of Seasons.[1] It is a magical tool kept in the Temple of Seasons that can be used to alter the Seasons. After an unfortunate series of events, the Season Spirits in the Temple of Seasons give the Rod to Link. Four magical gems are encrusted into the Rod, each representing one of the four Seasons.

Location and Uses

If the holder of the Rod of Seasons stands on a Tree Stump, swinging it will cause the seasons to change in order starting from Winter. To be able to change each Season, however, the relative Season Spirit must be visited to obtain its Season power. The power of Winter is the first Season power obtained, then the power of Summer is second. The power of Spring and the power of Autumn can be obtained in either order, although Spring is required to access the Dancing Dragon Dungeon and Autumn is required to access the Unicorn's Cave, suggesting that this is the regular order.

Because of Link swinging the Rod of Seasons the same way as a sword, it can be used to pick up objects, push enemies and block certain projectiles, like Octorok's rocks. The only enemies that can be hurt directly by the Rod are Ghinis, that can be killed in just one swing.
