With V30 coming out right away, one of the major changes this update is the new Inverted State. So to give you guys a head start on the newest addition to the randomizer roster, here's my newest guide! Please note that this is an advanced mode so 3 Heart Hammer Blind is a regular occurrence here. If you aren't comfortable with that, try starting off with Easy Difficulty to give yourself 6 hearts instead.
Imagine a world where Ganon has won. He's taken over Hyrule and our hero's tale begins. Born in the darkworld after his family was banished there after the defeat of the original hero, he once again takes up the mantle to defeat Ganon and save Hyrule.
While in the dark world, a few things have changed. Link will now require the moonpearl in order to retain his form in the light world. The flute, although is still activated in the light world, only works in the dark world. You are only able to use the mirror in the light world to transport you back to the dark world (and of course still use the mirror in dungeons). Damage values for enemies have not been adjusted so if you walk into a Hinox when you first start the game, your character will die. The frog will no longer persist following you through save and quit in inverted mode to ensure there are no softlocks.
To help guide you through the journey, I've created a handy map of all the changes to Hyrule for you to use. There's also more helpful tips below the maps!
The following changes have been added to the Inverted State in order to make all item locations accessible:
The warp tiles that you would originally find in the vanilla locations have been moved to their dark world counter spots. There is two notable exceptions to this however. Agahnim has now taken up residence on Death Mountain in Ganon's Tower which is permanently open in Inverted. Once you have defeated Agahnim a warp tile will spawn in the dark world above Link's house. The warp tile on Turtle Rock is now in the Dark World and requires you to climb on his tail to reach it.
In the Light World, stairs have been added to access the Bombos Tablet, the Graveyard Ledge, and the Lake Hylia Island. Cave 45, Checkerboard Cave and Spectacle Rock have been flattened to be able to access without mirror. There is now a bridge to access the Floating Island and there is now a cut out in the wall to jump down to Mimic Cave. The Cave that used to lead up to Death Mountain now leads to bumper cave and exits onto the light world bumper cave ledge allowing you to mirror over to get the item.
In the Dark World, Ice Palace has had the wall blown open so you can access the dungeon without needing to mirror into it. The GT stairs have been permanently lowered so you can access Aga Tower when you go up death mountain. A new set of stairs has been added on death mountain below Ganon's Tower. The bumper cave entrance actually takes you to the Old Man Cave and Exits onto Dark Death Mountain.
Turtle Rock has 4 entrances now with 3 of them being accessible with the mirror. It is no longer guaranteed that you need the medallion to access Turtle Rock. Simply jump down to a couple of the ledges on death mountain and mirror over to the dark world and walk into Turtle Rock!
If playing in Inverted with the Defeat Ganon objective, once you have obtained all 7 crystals you will head to Hyrule Castle where you will head towards Aganihm's Tower. Once you get to the door, you will get the crystal opening sequence cut scene and the Tower will now open for you. Once inside you will find you are in Ganon's Tower and will have to begin the climb to Aga 2. After Aga 2 has been defeated, Ganon will fly out of the tower and crash through the floor of the castle right in front of the door. Defeat Ganon as usual to complete the game, however, if you have the unfortunate luck to fall during the Ganon fight, you will find yourself at a new entrance on the left side of the courtyard that looks exactly the same as the secret entrance you speak to your uncle in. Head back in and take Ganon down to obtain the Triforce and Save Hyrule!
