Ah.  One room northeast of the entrance, did you use a super-bomb on the 2x2 glowing blue rock thing?  There was someone in the mines that gave that hint.

It has been WAY too long since I played this.   Wondered about that hint but totally forgot I was supposed to have a super bomb at this point.   I don't.   I'll go find one somewhere.   Don't tell me where.   This is what I get for going six years without playing.

Heh, sorry.  Okay, I won't tell you where, but I'll put it in a spoiler in case you need one.

Got it.   I'm now in train station.   Just as a reminder - I can get the L3 sword very nearby, right?   In the town?

 

Edit:  I don't know what I'm not doing.   I talked to the guy in the desert.   I think I have gone underwater everywhere in that cave.  I've been swimming in it for an hour.  I am not picking up the sword for some reason.

In past versions, yes, you could go directly to the L3 Sword if you could warp into the Little Girl's dream to go to the Crystal Town.  That is no longer true.  The dive flag will only appear if you have done the previous steps in the journey of discovery of the rumors of the sword's existence.
 
But to save you time, there's only one step that actually matters.  You have to navigate the desert maze west of Kanavas, then enter a cave with a 2x2 room with a square "whirlpool" of sand/conveyors. Kill all the enemies in the upper-right corner of that room and descend into the stairs below. Talk to the woman, walk around a tiny bit to trigger the secret that makes the sword attainable, and leave. Hopefully that's the "guy" that you mentioned. I think it's a girl. I have no idea. :freak: Then go for the sword.
 
Anyway, to save you even more time, once you've dived into the fountain in Crystal Town, (I keep using the wrong names for places.  Ha...) go one screen north then east.  See the little  2x3 diversion of swimmable water on the bottom-middle of the screen?  It has two traps on the bottom?  The upper-right combo of that 2x3 formation is where you need to dive.  Not the straight single-combo wide path going horizontally across the screen, but one combo below that horizontal path, hugging the right wall.  Here's an ASCII art map.  Dive in the red spot.

I did go through the maze, kill the enemies, and talk to the woman (I honestly don't pay that much attention to NPCs other than what they say if it seems important).  I wonder if for some reason I didn't trigger the secret somehow?   I'll go back, talk to her again, walk all around the room, then try again.  Having that bad boy will make exploration SO much easier.  

 

Edit:  I just missed the exact spot somehow.   Not sure how.   Combat is indeed much nicer now.
