is a terrible design choice.

For example, I'm 97% of the way through Cadence of Hyrule, but not realizing that the drum sucks and is stupid, I took it over the Cane of Somaria. Now it turns out you need that for some puzzles, and I'm out of dungeons to get an item from. I'm trying to see if there's a failsafe chest, but regrettably googling about brings me to this page:
https://zelda.gamepedia.com/Cane_of_Somaria

The existence of this page seems to assure the little internet gremlins who make video game wikis that no further input is required, but it also contains no information.

Tl;dr people aren't internetting in the way I would prefer them to. Also does anyone know where to get the Cane of Somaria
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

I think almost every puzzle can be solved in two ways, so I doubt you need the cane, though it is very helpful.

Also, the drum is super useful if you are playing on Fixed Beat mode.

Cadence of Hyrule is on my list to snag later, probably after I finish Ace Attorney Trilogy for the millionth time (though I think of the three games, I've really only played the first many times.)

Also re: people not internetting the way you want them to, whoever did the episode summaries across some six or seven seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh on that wiki is in love with the word "subsequently" and I have yet to find a place where it could be removed and it would actually, meaningfully change what the sentence says. It's infuriating in a way that I have to remind myself it doesn't matter even when the back part of my brain says it does.

The only thing I ended up using it for was getting Cadence's ultimate weapon, which was... not a super important item.

Also Fixed Beat mode sounds much more appealing now that I know what it is ("Lufia Mode") and now I kind of understand why they would include items like the drum and most of the kinds of arrows.

Subsequently, I answered this line of conversation. That sounds maddening, though not as maddening as the person who wrote a book and insisted on using the word "conjuncture" every third sentence. The phrase "under this conjuncture" literally means "keeping in mind all the stuff I've been saying."

When I read The Maze Runner series of books years ago it occurred to me very distinctly near the end of both the second and third books that the author must have stumbled on a phrase that they really, really liked and then ended up using it what felt like four or five times in the last 1/5th of the book. It wasn't so terrible, but more obvious that maybe editing had been a bit more loose toward the back ends of both books.

I found the drum super useful and also was super stuck trying to find the Cane.

Super-de-duper, in keeping with pointless repetition of words that add nothing to the context of a sentence.

Can confirm it was the second thing. You have to make a special point of caring by the end of the book, and, well, you kind of have to actually care about the book to care by the end.
