Tears of the Kingdom Quests List
There is plenty of action happening in the land of Hyrule in “Tears of the Kingdom” as Link explores the world. The tasks or missions he must complete to finish the main story and obtain additional rewards are called “quests.” There are four variations of quests in this game: Main Quests, Side Quests, Side Adventures, and Shrine Quests.
If you’re one of those players who want to complete all available quests in the game, this list of quests and their locations can be helpful to you. Read on to see all “Tears of the Kingdom” quests, their location, and which NPC holds them.
If you’re just starting to play “Tears of the Kingdom” or wondering why you can’t do certain side quests or adventures, the reason hides in the main quests. It would be best first to complete all the main quests and finish the main story to unlock all side quests.
Here is the list of all the main quests and where you can find them, alongside the quests holder’s names.
- Find Princess Zelda (Talk to Steward Construct)
- The Closed Door (Rauru gives this quest)
- To the Kingdom of Hyrule (Steward Construct)
These four quests are the first ones you have to complete after you begin the game. The Prologue is done in Hyrule Castle, while the remaining three quests you do at Great Sky Island. These quests are part of the tutorial, where you’re introduced to the game, Link, and his abilities.
After you complete these quests, you can leave the beginning area of Great Sky Island and explore the regions of Hyrule, including The Depths. The following four quests are located in Lookout Landing.
- Crisis at Hyrule Castle
- Regional Phenomena
- Camera Work in The Depths
- A Mystery in The Depths
The first two quests in this part of the story are given to you by Purah, who sends you to explore the overworld, while to complete the other two, you have to go to The Depths by orders of Josha.
Furthermore, as a part of the Regional Phenomena, you have to explore the four regions of Hyrule: Hebra, Eldin, Gerudo, and Lanaryu. For each area, excluding Lanaryu, you have one main quest and several sub-quests. The main quests in these regions are:
- Tulin of Rito Village (Hebra region, talk to Tulin)
- Yunobo of Goron City (Eldin region, talk to Yunobo)
- Riju of Gerudo Town (Gerudo region, talk to Riju)
In the Lanaryu region, you have five main quests.
- The Sludge-Covered Statue
- Restoring the Zora Armor
- Sidion of the Zora
- The Broken Slate
- Clues to the Sky
From the five Lanrayu quests listed above, the first three are in Zora’s Domain, while the remaining two are near Toto Lake. Furthermore, after you find all four sages in these regions, you have to go back to the Lookout Landing and start another series of quests. Note that you have to complete the four shrines before this.
The following questlines are related to finding the fifth sage and defeating the final boss, Ganondorf.
- Find the Fifth Sage – You have to talk to Purah again for this quest.
- Secret of the Ring Ruins – Paya gives you this mission at the Ring Ruins.
- Guidance from Ages Past – This one starts after you finish the previous quest at Ring Ruins and travel to Dragonhead Island.
- Destroy Ganondorf – Go back to Purah in Lookout Landing for this final quest in the storyline.
Before you can defeat Ganondorf and after finishing the “Secret of the Ring Ruins” quest, you receive additional main quests related to obtaining the “Master Sword” weapon. These quests are:
- Trial of the Master Sword – Visit Mineru at the Spirit Temple.
- Recovering the Hero’s Sword – Go to Koroku Forest and find the Great Deku Tree.
- Impa and the Geoglyphs
- The Dragon’s Tears
The last two quests in the list above are in New Serene Stable, where you must talk with Cado and Impa. Without the Geoglyphs quests, you can’t acquire the “Master Sword.”
Shrine Quests are important for obtaining more hearts and stamina. You can do this by opening a Shrine of Light for a Light of Blessing. One Light of Blessing gives you one heart.
