  • Double Jump can be unlocked in the Inkwater Marsh, the Image underneath shows the exact location for this Ability.
  • Triple Jump is available for purchase from Twillen, who is also located in the Wellspring Glades.

How to Hammer Boost

  • Step 1: Jump, then immediately use your Spirit Smash whilst holding left or right.
  • Step 2: As soon as the Spirit Smash animation is finished, repeat Step 1.
  • Step 3 (optional): If you also have Triple Jump, repeat Step 1 yet again.
