Illusion or Barrier?

It's a minor quibble, I know, but I'm pretty sure it's an illusion blocking the way to the top of the tower. The Maku Tree states that the Essences of Time "hold the power to see the truth, and [...] you can't defeat Veran if you can't see the truth," implying an ability to break through illusions; and the one remaining worker in the tower after its completion claims that "you can't even make it to the top without getting lost," again implying that misdirection is used to deter tresspassers. Plus, there are initially three doorways Link can "enter," but only one after using the Maku Seed, which again implies an illusion. It is serving as a barrier of sorts, but unlike in Onox's Castle, there doesn't seem to be a physical force keeping things out. Setras 21:12, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

I suppose you're right. I thought I remembered it being the same type of barrier as Onox's castle. It's been a while since I've done a real playthrough of OoA, so my memory's a little rusty.
The barrier page should probably be updated, too, then. — Hylian King [*] 11:34, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

The Turret

Should we mention some of the puzzles in the Turret on this page? --Planetbox 15:07, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
