Read on to learn the locations of each Geoglyph.

Note: Minor spoilers for The Legend of Zelda Tears of The Kingdom will follow.

Geoglyphs can be easily identified by the presence of a Dragon Tear - a large pit filled with green fluid. The pits are present in every crop circle-like structure present when traversing along the skies.

There are a total of 11 Geoglyphs to be found in Tears of The Kingdom, with the twelfth and final Geoglyph being unlocked after you clear the others. The locations of each Geoglyph are as follows, with the coordinates indicated within brackets:

  • King Rauru: The first Geoglyph players will find, shortly after meeting Impa. The Dragon Tear is present in Rauru’s right eye. (-1412, 0966, 0123)
  • Demon King: Rather difficult to find, thanks to the snowstorm. The Dragon Tear is present on the very left of the Glyph. (-1863, 3621, 0236)
  • Old Temple: Head east from Rito Village and up the mountain. The Tear can be found at the center of the Geoglyph, right above its door. (-2551, 1888, 0319)
  • Queen Sonia: Head to the Illumeni Plateau. The Dragon Tear can be found on the right-hand side of Sonia, adjacent to the dress. (-3096, -0777, 0211)

  • Sacred Stone: Head to the Talus Plateau, southeast from Zora’s Domain. The top of the Glyph houses the Dragon Tear. (4467, -0304, 0074)
  • Curved Scimitar: Head past Lurelin Village and into the southeast section of the in-game map. The Dragon Tear is present on the right-hand side of the Scimitar, near its handle. (3325, -3566, 0004)
  • Hidden Geoglyph: This particular Geoglyph is only accessible once players complete the prior 11 puzzles. Link will have to head to the Rist Peninsula to find a Dragon Tear at the very center of the spiral in East Akkala. (4534, 2144, 0000)

Completing this rather lengthy side quest unlocks a pathway for recovering the Master Sword. Players will have to engage in another side quest to retrieve what is undoubtedly the best weapon in the game. As such, this particular quest in The Legend of Zelda Tears of The Kingdom is a high priority.

The Legend of Zelda Tears of The Kingdom was released worldwide on May 12, 2023, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
