The Art Of Nin Ten Do


Wiimote & Nunchuck: You may now quest for the kung-fu skills of Nin Ten Do!

Hidden Quest 1 - The Art of Nin Ten Do:
The Way of the Master lies ahead, if you have the fortitude to walk the path.
( note - while this quest costs 20 Awesome to attempt, you will need to pay an ADDITIONAL 200 XP on top of that when you beat it to gain an ability. Don't start this quest unless you currently have at least 200 XP.)

Starting your Quest

You can feel it deep within you - an ability lost to the ravages of time. Something you haven't felt since you sat in front of your TV, eating cereal, searching desperately for the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. You must regain what you have lost.

You'll need to pick three items to boost your stats, as you take on 10 encounters, and a Quest Boss! Each encounter will let you pick between various stats and items to deal with it, and some will work better than others. (note: Quests are HARD. You'll need to figure out what stats are important, and what items, through cleverness.)

Item Slot 1:

  • Pokeball (gives +3 to Fan)
  • Power Glove (gives +20 to HP)
  • Zapper (gives +3 to Hot)

Item Slot 2:

  • Star (gives +3 to Str)
  • Cape (gives +3 to Hot)
  • Fire Flower (gives +3 to Mag)

Item Slot 3:

  • Triforce of Wisdom (gives +5 to Int)
  • Triforce of Power (gives +5 to Str)
  • Triforce of Courage (gives +30 to HP)
