The Legend of Zelda - 3 Hearts Challenge Event




Introduction

Hello there, and welcome to The Legend of Zelda, the 3 Hearts Challenge thread! As the name suggests, in an attempt to celebrate the upcoming release of Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for the Wii U, and the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3Ds, this event has been made! Now then, what's this event all about? Well, if you know about the Three Hearts Challenge that people do in the Legend of Zelda games, you'll know that The Three Heart Challenge is a challenge where the player completes a Zelda game without gaining a Heart Container or a Piece of Heart throughout the entire game, keeping the three heart health bar that most Zelda games start out with in the beginning of a game.

Rules


The final day to post all logs and progress is October 14th, (or about a month from now) which is when the event will end!
Please don't use any cheat devices or codes. D:
If you want to join, refer to the Sign-Up Section below!
Feel free to use emulators if you wish - you don't have to play these games on a normal handheld or console!
Try to jot down your progress in this thread - juuust to see that you're at least attempting it, if its a little tough to beat.
And of course, you ARE allowed to use any faeries, or potions to keep your health up.
Got any other questions? Feel free to ask in this thread!

Restrictions & Legitbility

There are a few restrictions to this challenge - in which in this case, you can't do this challenge while playing A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening, because you have to collect a Heart Container after defeating a major boss in order to progress further in the games. So, barring that, you're allowed to do this challenge on any of these Legend of Zelda games below, but keep in mind some things to watch out for, which I'll put in brackets:
The Legend of Zelda
The Adventure of Link (game starts out with four life bar panels, and leveling up Life is optional)
Ocarina of Time
Majora's Mask
Oracle of Seasons
Oracle of Ages
The Wind Waker (one Piece of Heart must be acquired in order to complete the game; however, the player does not have to complete a Heart Container)
The Minish Cap
Twilight Princess
Phantom Hourglass
Spirit Tracks
Skyward Sword (technically a "Six Heart Challenge" as the game begins with this many hearts.)

Prizes



Aw, but, what's a little event-challenge without prizes in store? You may be able to get these two emblems for participating, and going beyond that (but that is up to you!):

I can't promise I'll get very far with uni starting soon and the sheer length of the game, but I'll try my best! Great idea for a challenge though :D

I'm guessing so, but would I be allowed to do this challenge in Ocarina of Time 3D?

    I'll give this a shot. I could use an excuse to go tearing my hair out over game overs. I'm guessing any other optional upgrade (sword, shield, quiver/seed satchel, etc) is allowed?

      I'll probably get started later today. I have some cleaning and other work to be done that will occupy me for most of the day. I've never done one of these before, so this is going to be fun.

        tbh I just want an excuse to start this game again 8D

        If it turns out I don't have that much time to play on the Wii, I'll probably switch to OoT3D if that's okay.

        Heck, this might be my first Let's Play. We'll see where it goes, but I've been meaning to beat this game, so I might as well do it this way.

          I'm going to really, really regret this seeing that I havn't even beaten the game yet but...

          I'm assuming it's keeping to the spirit to not level up health even though it's optional?

          Yup! That would definitely cater to the spirit. :3

            Awesome, I just started a new game in A Link to the Past-...oh 8(

            In that case:

            And since my N64 likes to randomly reset itself, this should be all sorts of fun 8D...

              Ok!

              I guess I'll be the first one to post some progress

              I've named the file Spiamph

              I've managed to beat the first temple...twice...

              So as I beat it the first time I accidentally leveled up my health (unknown to be, but apparently if you skip leveling up something, it defaults back to the previous level, so if I skip health and level up attack, It auto-resets back to the 50 exp health level. Every Time. I'm going to have to be very cautious during level ups so I don't accidentally do it again. )


              It's going to be a long hard road, The First Temple is the only temple I'm super acquainted with, I've only beaten up to the Second Temple on my actual run. Oh, I did aquire the candle, and sheild spell. I'll be aiming for the trophy, jump, and Second Temple before too long.

              My current stats are 3 Attack, 3 Magic, 1 Life

                Oooh, I've been looking for an excuse to replay the Ages/Seasons games. I remember doing through NG++ (Ages->Seasons->Ages) after they came out, then haven't played them since.

                    Started a new file (playing the version downloaded onto my 3DS). I just got the Seed Satchel from the Maku Tree, and I'll head over to the graveyard tomorrow probably. So far no game overs. Woohoo!

                    Skyward Sword was a very hard game for me, so I don't exactly know how far I will be able to get with only six hearts. I'll probably have to quit the challenge by the time I get up to the third boss, but I can't be totally sure until I actually try it out. xD Also, good luck to everyone who are participating!

                        I was bored, so I continued on a little. I just got the Harp, and that's as far as I'm going to get tonight. No game overs yet, but I came close twice and lucked out that the monster dropped a heart when it died.

                        I'll do this on an emulator as I can post screenshots much easier than taking a picture of my 3ds all the time. I'll start after first paper for philosophy is due, which is October 1st (Contest ends in the 14th, so I'll still have time)

                          Challenge Accepted, mate!

                          Is it ok if I get a Piece of Heart? (one that doesn't add a 4th heart) Because there is something I wanna do and I have to keep on doing it and I can't skip the Heart Container.

                          Okay! I just finished Woodfall Temple! Here's my stuff so far!
                          Spoiler:



                          Anyway, one down, 3 to go!

                            Progress report: Another 3 down, bringing my total to 5/8. Yet to die, which is impressive considering I may not have been sober for some of it. Ignore the fact that I'm at 1/4 heart for two of them; I like to live dangerously.

                            So far, I've gotten my goddess sword, my green uniform, and met Fei. I'm off to Faron Woods now. I'm getting myself prepared to battle Demon Lord Ghirahim. It took me nearly two days for me to get him defeated the first time I've played Skyward Sword, but I'm not really sure how long it'll take me this time around. ): I'm familiar with all of his attacks and movements though, so it should be a little easier.
