Completing 'Secret of the Ring Ruins' main quest

To solve the riddle of the Dracozu Lake in The Legend of Zelda: TOTK, Link will have to acquire all 3 pieces of Charged Armor. Here’s where to find each one:

Dracozu Lake is one of Tears of the Kingdom’s more interesting landmarks. As a lake shaped like a dragon, jaws and all, there was almost certainly some secret to find there.

As it turns out, Dracozu Lake will be a major location in the main story quest ‘Secret of the Ring Ruins’. And it’s there that you’ll find all pieces of the Charged Armor Set.

After finding Tauru’s base camp in the Dracozu Lake, players will see a dragon statue that they can head inside.

Here, they’ll talk to Tauro and find instructions to ‘wear the electric garb hidden at long-necked dragons alon the wide-mouthed forest serpent’.

How to Solve Dracozu Lake Riddle

The Dracozu Lake temple contains the following inscription:

“Wear the electric garb hidden at long-necked dragons alon the wide-mouthed forest serpent. Offer a Zonai Charge to the altar at the tail.”

After finding all 3 pieces of the Charged Armor Set, make sure to have them all equipped.

Then, follow the Dracozu River all the way to the end and you’ll find one final dragon statue. Inside, there will be no chest, but an altar.

Find a Zonai Charge from your inventory (loot dropped by Constructs) and place it on the altar. If this is done while wearing the Charged Armor Set, lightning will strike.
