The Falling Star is an Item in Oracle of Ages.[2]

Location and Uses

The Falling Star is the eighth and final Essence of Time discovered by Link, located deep within the Ancient Tomb.[2] Unlike the other Essences, the Maku Tree is unable to tell Link where it is.[3]

For the Maku Tree to recover all her memories, and for Link to gain the wisdom to use the Huge Maku Seed, he must recover the Falling Star along with the rest of the Essences of Time.[1] Its light acts as a guide to the seven other Essences.[4]
