The Legend of Zelda: TOTK is finally here, and those who want to experience its story will need to hunt for Dragon’s Tears.

By finding these small pools at each of Hyrule’s 11 Geoglyphs, Link will get a glimpse at what Zelda has been up to and how Tears of the Kingdom’s world came to be in such disarray.

Here’s where to find all 11 Geoglyphs and all 12 memories held within the TOTK Dragon’s Tears.

All Dragon’s Tears Locations in Tears of the Kingdom

There are a total of 12 Dragon’s Tears to discover across Hyrule.

The first 11 will be located inside teardrops on each of the world’s Geoglyphs, but the 12th and final Tear will only appear once you’ve found all the others:

Dragon’s Tear Locations on each Geoglyph in Zelda: TOTK

It’s also worth noting that each of these Dragon’s Tears can be collected in any order, however, the memories they contain will always be the same.

If you want to see the story in its chronological order, make sure you work your way through the Tears from 1-12.

Also, we’d HIGHLY suggest getting your hands on the Glide Suit in TOTK to make getting to each Dragon’s Tear easier!

Dragon’s Tear 1

Shortly after completing the Zelda: TOTK prologue, Link can meet Cado on the road leading west out of Lookout Landing, beginning the Impa and the Geoglyphs quest.

Head to the Hyrule Ridge location marked on your map. You’ll meet Impa there and go on a hot air balloon ride over the first glyph.

Here you’ll discover the first Dragon’s Tear and receive a quest to find the rest.

Dragon’s Tear 9

There are no Skyview towers near the Talus Plateau, so this one may be a bit of a trek unless you stop off at Sky Islands along the way. Why not place down a Travel Medallion to teleport back here at any time?
