Tower of Hera (A Link Between Worlds)
|Tower of Hera|
|Game(s)||A Link Between Worlds|
|Quest Reward(s)||Pendant of Power|
The Tower of Hera is a dungeon in A Link Between Worlds, previously appearing in A Link to the Past. Its Lorule counterpart is the Treacherous Tower. The Hammer is required to traverse the dungeon, and its boss is Moldorm.
Entrance to the Dungeon
As with many dungeons in the game, the Tower of Hera is not given a certain "set" number. It can be accessed after completing the Eastern Palace, which means it is either the second or third dungeon Link must complete, before or after the House of Gales. The Tower of Hera is located after getting through Death Mountain, in the northeast of Hyrule.
The Tower of Hera has many puzzles involving the Hammer, and includes some switch puzzles. Some also involve Link merging into walls to get to unreachable places. As with its appearance in A Link to the Past, there is extensive use of red and blue barriers that are raised or lowered by switches, with the blue barriers up while the reds are down and vice versa. As in A Link to the Past, at the top of the tower, Link gets the Boss Key to exit the tower and climb up to fight Moldorm.
The Compass can be found in the center of the first floor; it is on a platform that Link can reach by launching himself onto the second floor and then dropping back down in the center opening. The Big Key is on the eastern side of the eleventh floor; Link must launch himself off of a moving platform to reach the chest.
