Sunset Fireflies are essential to those players that value stealth in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

But whether you’re trying to cook up some stealthy elixirs, or you’re finding 10 to give to Pyper for The Flute Player’s Plan quest, here’s how to get your hands on the glowing insects.

Sunset Firefly Location in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Sunset Fireflies are most easily acquired from Beedle, the traveling salesman in Zelda: TOTK in Highland Stable, for 10 Rupees each.

Beedle will be selling his goods at any Stable in Hyrule, as well as occasionally wandering the roads between them, but his inventory changes from location to location.

The Beedle at Highland Stable at the south of Hyrule’s map is the most reliable way to pick up the glowing bugs whenever you need them.

The downside: Beedle can only sell you 3 Sunset Fireflies per day.

However, his shop stock will reset every 24 in-game hours, so you will need to rest at a fire (or sleep in the stable inn) before purchasing more from him.

Sunset Fireflies will only appear at night, and only when it’s not raining.

The easiest way to get Sunset Fireflies is to buy 3 a day from Beedle at Highland Stable. Alternatively, Sunset Fireflies will be present, free of charge, at night in Pagos Woods.
