Thieves' Hideout B1
In the first room, Spear Boy lets you take guard duty. He leaves.
Go north up the bridge and go through the west door. Open the chest to get a purple rupee.
Go through the southwest door. Merge with the wall to go through the bars. The chest contains a purple rupee. Go to the lower middle part of the room and activate the crystal switch. Merge with the wall to get out past the bars. Go to the southwest corner of the room and pull one of the statues. Push it to the upper left side of the room so that it blocks the arrow-shooting trap, then get behind the statue and pull it until it's on the switch on the floor. Now merge with the wall and go back to the cell with the statue in it. Put the other statue onto the top middle switch. Now merge with the wall to get into the cell in the northeast corner of the room and step on the switch to open the door. Go through it.
Go past the two switches for now and go into the north room. Go up and step on the north middle switch to make the fan start blowing. Stand in the air flow and step on the switch on the right. Go back to the southeast corner of the fan room and fall down the hole in the southeast area.
Thieves' Hideout B2
You will end up near a chest. Open it to get a purple rupee. Go north and go down the stairs. Go south across the conveyor belts and exit the room through the south exit.
Get on the first conveyor belt and merge with the wall at the end, then go east and pop out near the stairs. Go up and hit the crystal switch. The south conveyor belt will change direction. If you don't have bombs, hit the bomb monster and throw it onto the conveyor belt to activate the crystal switch in the southwest corner. This opens the south door. Go through.
In the next room, don't hit the crystal switch. It's a trap that makes the floor fall. Instead, just go southeast and through the door there.
There are chalkboard-like things in the next room, some of which have items on them. Just go through the north door for now.
Merge with the wall to go into the cell and talk to the Thief Girl. She wants you to help her get out of the hideout. Right now you don't have a key, so just step on the switch in her cell and go back out through the bars. Then go through the bars north of you and open the chest to get the compass. Go back out.
Go through the door that you opened when you stepped on the switch in the Thief Girl's cell. Go north through the bars and then go to the north wall. There is a crack in the wall. Bomb it. If you don't have bombs, hit the bomb monster, then throw the bomb at the crack. Go through, then go west and then south. At the south end, there will be a door to your right. Go through it. Stand on the red tiles and hit the crystal switch, then stand on the blue tiles and hit the crystal switch. Go north along the narrow ledge, then drop into the cell to the north that has crystal switches in it. Go through the north door.
Some red Eyegores attack you. Set your lamp to your X or Y button so you can see more of what's going on. You can hit them with your sword, or with arrows, or whatever you prefer. If you walk away from them, they close their eyes and become invulnerable, so walk up close to them to wake them back up. When they are all gone, a green portal appears, and the chest to the north is lowered. The chest contains a key. Use the green portal to go outside and save, then come back to this room. Go south from the room.
Hit the crystal switch and stand on the blue tiles, then hit the switch again. Stand on the red tiles and hit the switch again, then fall to the middle of the room and go unlock the Thief Girl's cell. Talk to the girl. She asks you to take her outside, because the painting is on the outskirts of town. Talk to the girl again to get her to follow you. You can split up by pressing A.
Go north. The door locks behind you and the girl says to go to the north part of the room. Have the girl stand on a switch, then press A to separate and go stand on the other switch. Talk to the girl to get her to follow you again. Go through the door that you opened.
In the next room, go north. Monsters will attack. Kill them all, go get the girl if you got separated, and then go through the north door that opens.
Thieves' Hideout B3
In the next room, go south and walk across the walkway. Then press A to separate from the girl and merge with the wall to go east and step on the switch. Go back and get the girl and walk across the new walkway. Go south. You will reach some bars. Talk to the girl to split up, then merge with the wall and go through the bars. Kill the monsters on the other side and then get in the water. Swim west and then north. There is an area to the left of the bars that you came through a moment ago where you can see a walkway propped up against the wall. Merge with the wall and walk behind the walkway, then pop out to push the walkway down.
Go get the girl and walk west and south to the two switches. Have the girl step on one switch while you step on the other. Some bars south of you will be lowered. Get in the water and swim south past those bars. Swim under a raised walkway and then go to the east area where there is a switch in the wall that you can pull. Pull it to lower the water. Go north and merge with the wall to get past the bars that have a chest behind them. The chest contains a silver rupee.
Go get the girl, then go down to the blue tiles to the right of where you pulled the water switch. Hit the crystal switch and stand on the blue tiles with the girl, then hit the switch again to go up. Go west and put the girl on the red tiles, then go back and drop a bomb on the crystal switch, then run over to the red tiles. When the bomb goes off, the tiles will go up. When you start to walk south, more monsters will appear, so leave the girl on the tiles and fall down and get rid of the monsters. Then hit the crystal switch and talk to the girl to team up again. Stand on the two switches to the left to make a big part of the wall go away. Go north along the path that you opened up. The big chest contains a chunk of Master Ore.
Go back to the two switches that made the wall disappear, then go east with the girl. Talk to the girl to leave her there, then go stand on the red tiles and hit the switch to go up. Walk along the wall to the east and then jump off in the southeast area. Go to the east wall and merge with it, then go behind the walkway and pop out to knock it down. Go get the girl and walk across the walkway, then go north through the door.

Put the girl on the switch down here, then talk to her to leave her there. Go up the stairs, merge with the wall to get past the broken walkway, then go up and step on the switch on the walkway up above. Go down and kill the monsters that appear, then talk to the girl to join her again. Go through the west door and open the chest to get a potion ingredient, then go through the southwest door.
Go west again. More monsters appear, but you can get rid of them quickly by standing on the ledge with the crystal switch and hitting the switch to make them all fall into the pit. Go through the north door with the girl, and in the next room, go through the north door again. In the next room, some monsters will appear. Kill them or knock them onto the conveyor belts to get rid of them. Afterward, if the conveyor belt to the north is going to the right, hit the crystal switch north of that conveyor belt to make it go back toward the wall. Go north and use the north exit once more.
Thieves' Hideout B1, part 2
Go southwest and merge with the wall south of the fan. Go south to the next ledge, pop out, then go north to the switch in the middle. Step on it, then if necessary, go back and talk to the girl to get her to follow you again, then walk into the air flow from the fan. You'll be sent to the ledge on the right. Step on the switch there to activate the eastern fan. Make sure that the girl is following you and step into the southern air flow. Go south and go through the south door together.
Put the girl on one of the two switches and step on the other. Go over and open the chest to get a silver rupee. Then rejoin the girl and go through the south door together.
Monsters appear in the next room. Kill them, then go through the east door together.
The front door locks. Go north and put the girl on one of the switches, then stand on the other. The chalkboard thing in the wall starts moving back and forth. Go up and merge with it to reach the big chest, which contains the big key. Get the key. Rejoin the girl and go through the southeast door together.
Merge with Stalblind's shield. When it looks around for you, pop out of the shield and hit Stalblind from behind. Stalblind might spit black energy at you. It might also swing its sword. Keep your distance. In order to get Stalblind to raise its shield, try hitting it from the front when it is not transparent. Then attack like you did before.
After a while, Stalblind throws away the shield. At this point, you have to just attack when you get an opening. Sometimes a black circle appears around Stalblind. This means that Stalblind is about to spin its sword around for a while, so run away. He'll be dizzy afterward, so hit him repeatedly until he recovers. Also, if you stand close to the front of Stalblind, he will chop his sword downward, getting it stuck in the floor. When this happens, quickly run around and hit his back.
Eventually, Stalblind makes his skull float around the room, spitting dark energy. His body won't be able to see you, so stay behind it and hit it repeatedly, avoiding the dark energy from Stalblind's skull. After you hit Stalblind's body, he might turn around and start chopping with the sword. You can just run behind him while he does that and hit him some more. Repeat the process until Stalblind dies.
Afterward, true to her word, the Thief Girl takes you to where the painting is. It was locked up in a nearby house. Pick up the Heart Container in the house, then touch the painting of Osfala. When you meet Osfala, he will give you the Sand Rod. Osfala borrowed it from Ravio, so when you go outside, Ravio's bird Sheerow comes and takes it. You'll need it later. Go rent it from Ravio if you want to use it.
