Tears of the Kingdom
All Geoglyphs and Dragon’s Tears from The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
We tell you how to get all the Dragon’s Tears from the geoglyphs in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. All tears’ locations and map.
The Geoglyphs and Dragon’s Tears are two essential elements of the plot of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. On this page of our Tears of the Kingdom guide, we tell you where all the Dragon’s Tears are located:
What are the geoglyphs in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and why are they important?
If you have explored Hyrule on your own in Tears of the Kingdom, you may have noticed that there are large drawings in certain areas of the map. These are called geoglyphs.
To find all the geoglyphs, we will have to follow a main quest that we may have skipped if we were playing solo. Inside each geoglyph we will find a Dragon’s Tear; interacting with it will show us a scene from the game, revealing details of the plot.
Main Quest Impa and the Geoglyphs on The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The main quest Impa and the Geoglyphs begins at the New Serenne Stable, at this point on the map. It is located in the Hyrule Hills, west of Central Hyrule.
Once here, talk to Cado, who stands near the path and has a donkey beside him. This activates the main quest Impa and the Geoglyphs:
The mission itself is to go to Impa, talk to her and place the balloon correctly. Once this is done, we talk to her again.
Then we have to make a fire in the balloon to make it rise. There is a torch and a bonfire nearby. Another option is to shoot an arrow with a fire fruit.
Once in the air, we can see all the geoglyphs. Be careful because all the geoglyphs are “solved” in the same way: we have to pay attention to which of the tears in the drawing is completely painted because we have to go there.
If we go to this place, we will be able to interact with the Dragon’s Tear 1.
After watching the scene below, we will have completed the main quest Impa and the Geoglyphs, and the main quest Dragon’s Tears will be activated.
All Dragon’s Tears in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: Locations and Map
The main quest, The Dragon’s Tears, asks us to go to the Forgotten Temple in the Tabantha Tundra.
When we reach the deepest part of the Forgotten Temple, we will see a map with the locations of the geoglyphs:
There are a total of twelve Dragon Tears throughout the map. The number 12 will only be revealed after we have interacted with the previous eleven. Below we leave you with all their locations:
It is not mandatory that you use balloons or other vehicles to get up in the air; we try to include multiple images for each area to make it as clear as possible where to go. Of course, finding the Dragon’s Tears will be much easier if you have uncovered the entire map by going to all the Skyview Towers.
Dragon’s Tear 1: Where Am I? On Hyrule Ridge, north of North Hyrule Plain and New Serenne Stable.
Dragon’s Tear 2: An Unfamiliar World. In Hebra, northwest of where the map says Tabantha Hills.
Dragon’s Tear 3: Mineru’s Counsel. South of Eldin Canyon. Northeast of Zelo Pond.
Dragon’s Tear 4: The Gerudo Assault. In West Necluda, east of Batrea Lake. This one cannot be seen from the sky because it is in a part that is covered by trees.
Dragon’s Tear 5: A Show of Fealty. In the Gerudo Highlands, below Sapphia’s Table. This Dragon’s Tear is “easy” to find because the geoglyph is painted on a rock wall; the Tear is in the small area of the drawing that is on flat ground.
Dragon’s Tear 6: Zelda and Sonia. On the Hyrule Ridge, on the Illumeni Plateau.
Dragon’s Tear 7: Sonia is Caught by Treachery. In Necluda. East of where the map says Gogobi Shores.
Dragon’s Tear 8: Birth of the Demon King. In the Tabantha Tundra, North Tabantha Snowfield.
Dragon’s Tear 9: The Sages’ Vow. In Lanayru, on the Talus Plateau.
Dragon’s Tear 10: A King’s Duty. In Farone Meadow, east of Mount Faloraa, on a hill overlooking Lake Hylia.
Dragon’s Tear 11: A Master Sword in Time. In the Eldin Mountains, between Thyphlo Ruins and Darunia Lake.
Dragon’s Tear 12: Tears of the Dragon. In Akkala, on the Rist Peninsula. It only appears when we have investigated the previous eleven.
As you already know, our The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom guide helps you with many of the most important aspects of the game, such as how to get more hearts and stamina, or which are the best horses.
