The Song of Time is a unique spell and Ocarina Song usable only with the Ocarina of Time. Like all songs it can be found in leveled loot, but its guaranteed songbook page is found in Forelhost Refectory.

The Song of Time has many functions and is arguably the most versatile spell in Relics of Hyrule. Whenever it is played, it restores all three attributes by 50 points. If played at an Ancient Enchanter, it allows the player to restore certain books and craft certain items. Even if the Song of Time is not active, its mere presence allows the player to craft pages for the Song of Double Time and Inverted Song of Time.

In certain locations, playing the Song of Time will provide new routes for the player by summoning Blocks of Time. Playing the Song of Time will also open the Ancient Gates in Kinolangdanzel, Morwitijaal, and Itnamzand.

Blocks of Time Edit


A Block of Time in Kamdelimar

Blocks of Time manifest when the Song of Time is played in certain locations. They often provide the player with platforms to reach otherwise unreachable areas, or vanish to allow the player to pass. While some areas can be reached with Whirlwind Sprint, the Roc's Cape or the Hover Boots, certain areas can only be accessed using the blocks. Certain areas can only be accessed if a Block of Time is removed.

Background and Inspiration Edit

The Song of Time has been present in Relics of Hyrule since the mod's inception and the inclusion of the Ocarina of Time. Its function has evolved over time to more effectively replicate its use in Ocarina of Time. The guaranteed location of its songbook page in Forelhost has not changed since its implementation.

Prior to version 6.4, the Song of Time allowed the player to craft a key to open the Ancient Gates. This function was implemented due to JKalenad's limited skill-set at the beginning of the development of Relics of Hyrule. With the addition of the Blocks of Time and their reflection of his developed skills, JKalenad was able to rework the Ancient Gates to function as he originally envisioned.
