Among the many changes to Hyrule’s surface The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom mysterious, bright glyphs appeared in large parts of the landscape. A small pool of light is hidden within each of these images. It is inside the ponds Dragon tearsunlocking “Memory” cuts featuring stories Zelda, Cloud, Soniaand Ganondorf.



You have met Impa (we met him Northern Hyrule Plainthe west Watchman opening), who gives youDragon tears” the main quest to explore every glyph and find every dragon tear, or just exploring a glyph on a whim, collecting every memory is worth it in the context they give Tears of the kingdomthe story of Plus, every Teardrop will reveal where to find it Master Sword (perhaps long before the main story, depending on which order you tackle).

Below we’ll talk about where to find each glyph, where to find each Dragon Tear within each respective glyph, and some general rules that will make this side adventure easier.


What you need to know about Dragon Tears

We’ll cover the specific Dragon Tear locations for each glyph below, but keep these pointers in mind for those looking for some helpful tips to just point you in the right direction:

  1. When looking at the glyphs from afar (probably from the sky after being catapulted from the Skyview Tower), notice the teardrop shape that is completely filled with gold “paint”, unlike many hollow teardrop shapes. that litters every glyph. The glowing pool where the dragon’s tear is located will almost certainly reveal itself as a solid teardrop when you come upon it.
  2. Since Link needs to be on solid ground to “scrutinize” each of the Dragon Tear pools, these glowing pools will always be on relatively level ground. This knowledge can help glyphs painted on steep hills or cliffs; in other words, don’t waste time removing the steepest spots. Your best bet is to explore small ledges and tails that will be large and flat enough to accommodate a Dragon Tear pond.
  3. Finding each Tear will reveal the location of the Master Sword. see our entry for Tear #12: Dragon’s Tears below.
  4. Note the rocks in the center of the teardrops and other symmetrical markings on the glyphs – there is probably a Korok lurking beneath them.

Without further ado, here are the locations of every glyph we’ve found so far (along with map images and coordinates) and their corresponding Dragon Tears.
