Hidden skills

Scattered throughout Hyrule are stones which create fun whistling tunes when the wind passes through them. Approach them as a wolf and Howl along with their melody. You’ll be greeted by a Golden Wolf, who will bid you find him “with sword in hand.”

Find the location he appears and approach as a human and you will be taught a Hidden Skill.
