The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – A Guide to Solving “Clues to the Sky” Puzzle
Just like many other installments in the Zelda franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom features a wide variety of puzzles throughout the course of Link’s journey. As a foundation of the game’s mechanics, there is hardly a questline that Link progresses through that does not feature several. With this in mind, it is hardly surprising when Link encounters a particularly tricky puzzle while making his way through the Zora section of Tears of the Kingdom. The bulk of this puzzle takes place during “Clues to the Sky,” which revolves around several key pieces of information given by Prince Sidon and his researcher, Jiahto. The key phrases include ‘Land of the Skyfish,’ ‘Floating rock in the shape of a droplet,’ and ‘Mark of the King.’ This guide will explain how Link can decipher the meaning behind each of these riddles, ultimately leading him to the resolution of Prince Sidon’s storyline.
How to Find the Land of the Sky Fish in Tears of the Kingdom
When Link returns to Prince Sidon after speaking with King Dorephan in the Pristine Sanctum, the pair will discuss the next section of the puzzle. Link must make his way to the ‘Land of the Sky Fish,’ but very little information is given in regard to what this actually refers to. Luckily, the answer is both very close and very literal. If players head to the map, switching to the Sky view will reveal several Sky Islands above Zora’s Domain. Looking at the far right of the Lanayru Sky Archipelago, they should see an island that is clearly in the shape of a fish. At this point, Link will not have access to any of the Sky Islands in its direct vicinity, but that does not matter. As long as Link has Zora Armor, he will be able to easily make his way to the ‘Land of the Sky Fish.’ From Mipha’s Court, Link can see that the island is fairly close and happens to have a clean waterfall running off its edge. Link can jump from the cliff and glide to the waterfall, and as long as he is wearing the Zora Armor, he will be able to swim up to the top, revealing Floating Scales Island. If for any reason Link does not want to use Zora Armor, the materials to make a hot air balloon are nearby. Link can also make it to the island by using the Upland Zorana Skyview Tower (2858, 0582, 0379). The armor is definitely the preferred method, however, and will come in handy throughout Tears of the Kingdom.
Where to Find the Floating Rock in the Shape of a Droplet
When Link reaches Floating Scales Island, he will notice a large amount of floating debris. These stones hold the key to solving the ‘Droplet’ part of the puzzle. All players need to do is head to the very center of the island, which is also the highest point. From there, players should walk to the western edge and look out towards the ground. From this angle, they’ll see that the floating debris appears to form the shape of a droplet of water. The exact coordinates of Link’s position should be 4073, 0528, 0603. Players must now Fuse one of the King’s Scales to an arrow and shoot it through the droplet. They can do this by pressing ZR to pull out Link’s bow, then holding up on the D-pad. With the Fuse menu open, players should scroll across with the right stick until the King’s Scale is found. They can then release the D-pad to complete the Fuse, aim their shot, then press ZR to fire the arrow. The arrow entering the droplet will trigger a beam of light, which begins emanating from the reservoir below. Completing this task will solve the puzzle and end “Clues to the Sky.” Players can then head back down to Prince Sidon and continue with the “Sidon of the Zora” main quest.
