— In-game story
A wind-swept temple rises from the towering peaks, and those who dare to brave these gusty halls must harness the power of the wind itself. Deep within the sanctum, past the whipping winds and dangerous deadly drops, a mighty Tempest Golem has been corrupted by the shard's influence, and must be destroyed.
— In-game Intro
As the Tempest Golem and the shard are destroyed, a soothing breeze breathes new life into the land.
— In-game Outro
The Gale Sanctum is a large, highly decorative temple built upon a mountain peak found in the middle of the island where Howling Peaks takes place. It is a fancy and elaborate temple filled with lots of gold and jade adornments, windmills, and many wind-powered mechanisms, most of which are found usually inside. The interior of the temple consists of highly decorated rooms filled with plants and even small pools, as well as many bottomless pits with the only walkways being wooden wind-activated pulleys and stone pipes used for directing wind. Its within these bottomless pits that various wind puzzles are found such as windmill activations and pushing blocks via wind to grab a Key Golem to open a door to another decorated room, where various Squall Golems can be seen along with many resonance crystals which activates them. At the end of the mission is another bottomless pit where the Tempest Golem can be seen inactive with 8 Squall Golems in front of it, in which all of it activates to battle the hero in its arena. Its arena consists of mostly of the Squall Golems and two wind runes which must be struck to disable the Tempest Golem. A Squall Golem factory can sometimes generate inside the sanctum. In the fountains where squall golems sometimes spawn, an End Portal Frame can be see as the top of the conduit.
