The two entrances of the castle are now blocked off and all of the Moblins and Darknuts are now active. Link will needed to defeat every last enemy in this room to remove the barriers. Fortunately, Link now has the upgraded Master Sword and these enemies are much easier to defeat.

While fighting the enemies, be sure to use the Grappling Hook to snatch up some spoils. Moblins will always leave a Skull Necklace while the Darknut will leave a Knight's Crest. Link cannot pull the Knight's Crest out initially and will first need to remove the Darknut's helmet.
