Welcome to my guide to finding all the Pieces of Heart in The Legend
of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons.  This guide is a great complement to
myself and ShdwRlm3's Oracle of Seasons FAQ, also available at
GameFAQs (shameless self-promotion over).


The Heart Container system is rather complex, depending on whether or
not you're playing a "Password" game.  In a normal, "non-Password"
game, you can get

3 Heart Containers- Link begins the game with these.
8 Heart Containers- 1 Heart Container is present in each dungeon.
     Collect them after you defeat the Boss.
3 Heart Containers (12 Pieces of Heart)- These are present all
     throughout the world of Labrynna.  Search through caves, play
     mini-games, and do other special things to collect all 12 Pieces
     of Heart.
1 Heart Container- Use the Graveyard Secret from an Oracle of Ages
     "linked" game to receive another Heart Container.

Okay, so 3+8+3+1=15, right?  But there are only enough spaces for 14!
Well, once you collect a Heart Container exceeding the 14th, your
Status Bar will change to allow up to 16 Hearts!  BUT, it's currently
unknown if you can get 16 Hearts in a non-Password game.  I'll find
out soon!

NOTE!  It IS possible to get 16 Hearts in a non-Password game!
However, this is only possible if you're using a Hero's Secret to
start a new game.  You receive the Hero's Secret after beating a
password "Linked Game."  Using a Hero's Secret allows you to start a
non-Password game with 4 Hearts instead of the usual 3.


In a "Password" game, the system gets even more complicated.

4 Heart Containers- Link begins the game with 4 Heart Containers
     instead of 3.
8 Heart Containers- 1 Heart Container is present in each dungeon.
     Collect them after you defeat the Boss.
3 Heart Containers (12 Pieces of Heart)- These are present all
     throughout the world of Labrynna.  Search through caves, play
     mini-games, and do other special things to collect all 12 Pieces
     of Heart.
1 Heart Container- After using the Fairy Secret in an Oracle of Ages
     "non-linked" game, give the Secret given to you by the Fairy to
     Farore inside the Maku Tree.  Open the Chest for another Heart
     Container.

Okay, so 4+8+3+1=16, no?  Yep.  Again, there are only spaces for 14,
but once you get your 15th, the Heart Meter will change to accomodate
for the extra hearts, so you can get up to 16 Hearts!


The basic layout of this guide is as follows:

1. Location of Piece of Heart - Item(s) needed to reach Heart Piece.
   Brief walkthrough to get to the Piece of Heart.

The walkthroughs will often use the dungeons or Mystical Seed Trees
as points of reference.


1. Maple - N/A
   Maple will randomly drop a Piece of Heart, once you have collected
   one off her she will never drop another.

2. Gasha Tree - N/A
   If you plant a Gasha Seed in soft soil, the Gasha Nut that grows
   from the tree may have a Heart Piece in it.
   (The location of the Heart Piece is totally RANDOM!  Just keep
   planting those Gasha Seeds, especially in hard-to-reach soft
   soil locations).

3. Horon Village - Seed Satchel with Ember Seeds
   It is found in the center of Horon Village. To collect it, use an
   Ember Seed on the sapling blocking the way to burn it out of the
   way.

4. Eastern Suburbs - Rod of Four Seasons with Winter
   Change the season to Winter using the Stump in the far south-east.
   Now go up, head up the stairs and over the snow build-up, down,
   left and enter the cave. Now head up to collect the Piece of 
   Heart. 

5. Woods of Winter - Power Bracelet or Zora's Flippers
   In the far south-east corner of the Woods of Winter, move the rock
   out of the way with the Power Bracelet or swim across the water to
   get to the Piece of Heart.
 
6. Subrosia Village - N/A
   You can buy a Piece of Heart from the Subrosia Market for 20 Ore
   Chunks & 10 Ember Seeds.

7. Spool Swamp - Rod of Four Seasons with Spring & Zora's Flippers
   Using the tree stump below the entrance to Poison Moth's Lair
   change the season to Spring. Head right, down then swim down,
   down, right & head into the Rapids on your right. Follow the 
   Rapids and he will take you to the Piece of Heart, but you will
   have to swim towards it to get it.
 
8. Mt. Cucco - N/A
   Drop down from the entrance of the Dancing Dragon Dungeon to 
   collect the Piece of Heart.

9. Moblin's Keep - Zora's Flippers & Power Bracelet
   Swim to the entrance on the west side of the Fort from Natzu 
   Praire/River/Wasteland and then head up twice and enter his tower,
   kill the Pig Warriors then head up the stairs to fight the Great
   Moblin. To kill the Great Moblin, pick up the large Bombs (you
   need to equip the Power Bracelet), wait a few seconds, then toss
   them back at the Great Moblin. After you hit him a couple of times
   he will go grey because of all the gunpowder. Then all you have
   to do is make the bomb explode just when he is about to throw a
   bomb. The bomb will land in his stockpile and the whole fort will
   be in ruins. Now open the chest in the rubble of the tower to get
   a Piece of Heart.

10. Eyeglass Lake - Rod of Four Seasons with Summer & Power Bracelet
   Using the Tree Stump in Eyeglass Lake change the season to
   Summer. Then head right, down, down, down the steps then head up,
   up, pick up the rock with the Power Bracelet and go down the 
   stairs. Avoid the Keese and Zols and head down the stairs to your
   left. Avoid more Keese and Zols then head down the stairs to you
   right. Now avoid the spears and open the chest to collect the
   Piece of Heart.

11. Graveyard - Rod of Four Seasons with Summer, Winged Cape &
                   the Power Bracelet
   Using the Tree Stump in Western Seashore change the season to
   Autumn (You have to go through an abandoned house to get to it).
   Then head into the cave, right one screen from where the vine is
   in Summer that takes you to the Graveyard. Jump over the gap, move
   the right stone up, the middle stone left and then go up the 
   stairs. Now go up, left, pick up the Mushrooms & then collect the
   Piece of Heart.

12. Temple Remains - Bombs
   After flooding the Temple Remains with lava from the underworld,
   head up and Bomb the pile of rocks to open up an entrance to a
   cave. Enter the cave and jump across the lava to get to the Piece
   of Heart.
