Abilities
Ability: Down Thrust
Get the Down Thrust Ability: Go to the town of Mido and walk to the left through it. When you reach the building with the high door, use the Jump Spell to get to the door. Inside, you'll find a soldier who will teach Link the Down Thrust Ability.
Ability: Up Thrust
Get the Up Thrust Ability: Go to the town of Darunia, then head to the left while counting the houses. To get down the chimney of the sixth house, use Jump magic to get on the roof of a smaller building, then jump from roof top to roof top to get to the chimney. Inside, you will learn the Up Thrust ability. Please note that if you use Fairy Magic you will not be able to go down the Chimney. You must be Link to enter the house in that manner.
