How to Unlock Great Fairy Cotera

Additionally, you will have to help the musicians cross the river to reach the Great Fairy.

  1. Travel to the Dueling Peaks Stable. This Stable is located south of Kakariko Village. You can also reach this location by traveling southeast from Lookout Landing.
    • One easy way to reach this location is by gliding from the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower if you have it unlocked already.
Dueling Peaks Stable Location and Map Tears of the Kingdom
  1. Next to the Stable, you will find the Stable Trotters traveling musicians. Talk to Mastro to start the “Serenade to Cotera” quest.
  2. Now, you must help the musicians reunite with their drummer, Beetz.
    • To find him, take the road north from the Dueling Peaks Stable. Continue past the Kakariko Bridge, and take the road up to the right until to reach a stone archway embedded on the rocks to the right side. You can see both the location on the map and the stone arch in the image below.
Beetz Location and Map Tears of the Kingdom
  1. Once you talk to him, you will receive the “Honey, Bee Mine” quest. To complete this quest, you have to deliver three Courser Bee Honey.
    • To get Courser Bee Honey, you need to pick up honeycombs. You can find several honeycombs in the forest north of Kakariko Village*. This forest is pictured in the map below.
    • Once you find a honeycomb in the branch of a tree, shoot it with an arrow. It will fall to the ground, and bees will attack you. To get rid of them, ZL target them and hit them. After two hits, they will fly away.
    • Return to Beetz’s location and give him the Courser Bee Honey to complete this quest.
    • You will get 100 Rupees as a reward for completing this quest.

*Note: If you don’t want to go to the forest for honey, you can skip to the “How to Unlock Great Fairy Mija” section of this article, and complete it. One quest in that section gives honey as a reward.

Courser Bee Honey Location and Map Tears of the Kingdom
  1. After completing the “Honey, Bee Mine” quest, return to the Dueling Peaks Stable and speak with Mastro again. Follow his dialogue, and he will mention that they need to cross the river to get to the Great Fairy location.
    • This part of the quest can get a little bit tricky. We recommend that you follow the next steps in this order to avoid different results.
    • As soon as the dialogue from Mastro ends, they will move close to the river. There, you will see their wagon without wheels.
    • Talk to Mastro once again and exhaust his dialogue. After this, you must build a raft to take the wagon across the water to the Great Fairy Fountain.
    • The best way to do this is by laying one of the big planks of wood that are near this area on the floor. Then, attach the wagon on top of it so it can float.
    • Now, proceed to attach the Zonai Devices that are stranded in the rocks right in front. The ideal setup is two fans for propulsion in the back and the steering stick in the front. You can see the ideal boat construction in the image below.

    • To catch a firefly, crouch by pressing the left stick (L3) and get close to them as slowly as possible. Once you are near enough, press the A button to catch them.
    • In addition to the method mentioned above, a merchant named Eryck can be found on this northern path to the woods. He travels in his wagon and can sell you up to five fireflies for 10 Rupees each.
    • Return to Pyper and deliver the 10 Sunset Fireflies.
    • He will ask you to wait till nighttime again and bring Haite to his location.
    • Wait for nighttime or pastime using a cooking fire or the inn. Once nighttime, go inside the stable, talk to Haite, and ask her to follow you.
    • Walk to the tree where Pyper is located to trigger a cutscene and complete this quest. You will receive a Big Hearty Truffle from Pyper as a reward.

    • Luckily, all the pieces you need to construct the ATV are right beside the stable, leaning against a rock.
    • Use Ultrahand and attach the only missing wheel to the prebuilt ATV. Make sure the wheel is facing the same direction as the other ones!
    • Attach the steering stick to the vehicle’s frontal part and attach the Breezer wagon to the car. You can take a look at the final build in the image below.
    • Pro-tip: Get the vehicle close to the wagon before attaching it. If you take the Breezer wagon too far off, Mastro says you can’t take it that far and will reset it to its previous location.
    • Once you have finished building, talk to Mastro and offer the musicians a ride up the hill.
ATV Build Tears of the Kingdom
  1. Once all the musicians are in, take control of the ATV and drive them uphill to the location of the Great Fairy.

How to Unlock Great Fairy Mija

To unlock the Great Fairy Mija location in Tears of the Kingdom, you must complete the “Serenade to Mija” quest.

This can be accomplished by reuniting the Stable Trotters with Eustus, their hornist. Once reunited, you will be tasked with building a roof for their wagon and taking them to the Great Fairy location.

  1. Travel to Tabantha Bridge Stable (-2919, 0545, 0169), located on the western side of the Hyrule Ridge, right next to the Tabantha Great Bridge. From here, you can travel to the location where you will find Eustus.

    • You can find the exact location for Eustus in the image below.
Eustus Location Tears of the Kingdom
  1. Talk to Eustus to start “The Hornist’s Dramatic Escape” quest. To complete it, you must build a propulsion device and attach it to Eustus’s wagon to get him out of the crater.
    • The materials for the propulsion device are all next to Eustus, inside the crater.
    • This particular build can be tricky, but you can look at the finished build in the image below for guidance as you follow instructions.
    • This propulsion device consists of a square stone slab with two Balloon Zonai Devices attached, one to each side.
    • You’ll need to attach the Flame-Emitter Zonai Devices that resemble Dragon Heads inside each balloon canister. Make sure both flame-emitters are positioned to shoot their flame upwards.
    • Once this part of the build is ready, attach it to the top part of the wagon, ensuring it is centered and balanced.
    • Attach two Fan Zonai Devices, each to one side of the stone slab. The fans should face the ground at a 45-degree angle to create lift.
    • Once the build is ready, talk to Eustus so he can get into the wagon.
    • Shoot one of the fans with an arrow to start the Zonai Devices. This should propel Eustus out of the crater, completing this quest.

    • As a reward, Mastro gives you 100 Rupees. If you have unlocked all the other Great Fairy locations, he also changes the name of the Stable Trotters to Stable Heroes in your honor.
