To reach the Shadow Temple without the Nocturne of Shadow or Din's Fire in speedruns, runners get to the seam surrounding the walls of the graveyard and navigate it to above the stairs leading down to the Shadow Temple, and then sidehop over the trigger that loads the door that blocks the entrance to the dungeon.
1. Getting to the seam Edit
Method 1: Superslide Teleport Edit
[will add video and text guide]
Works as child and adult
Does not require the hookshot
Requires sword, shield, and an explosive (preferrably a bombchu)
Method 2: Hookshot Jump Edit
This method uses the Hookshot Jump glitch through roll bonk invincibility:
Go to this spot by Dampé's house, and face towards the hookshot grave
[will add picture of initial position]
Sidehop right, then sideroll and hold forwards to bonk
During the bonk, mash hookshot. Link will pull his hookshot briefly and put it away over and over now.
On the third hookshot pull, you have two frames to press hookshot to hookshot jump. From there, hold down to land on the seam.
Go towards Shadow temple and ISG off the poe to make the seamwalk easier
Does not require explosives, swingable weapon, or shield
Fairly precise 2-frame input for hookshot button input that many runners may have to buffer
Only works as adult
Hookshot jumping takes some time to set itself up
3. Sidehop over the door loading zone Edit
