Diamonds are one of the best resources in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, as they sell for 500 Rupees and offer 25 attack power when fused with weapons. Since they are so valuable, they are hard to find, with only a handful of ways to get your hands on them.
In this guide, we show you how to find diamonds in The tears of the kingdom.
Where to find diamonds
There are five shrines in the game that reward you with diamonds. These shrines are different from the rest and contain Rauru’s blessings, which play differently than you might be used to. We won’t spoil them here, but we will list the five shrines that give diamonds:
- Yomizuk Shrine
- Jochi-ihiga Shrine
- Mayaotaki Shrine
- Sihajog Shrine
- Maoike’s Shrine
After completing a puzzle to enter each shrine, simply approach the chests to acquire a diamond.
Likewise, you can collect diamonds from chests around Hyrule. There is a chest with a diamond under Hyrule Castle and you can find it under a floor grate. But be sure to keep your eyes open while playing as there are many chests in the game, some of which contain diamonds.
You can also defeat Talus enemies around the map for a chance to earn diamonds. The drop is low, but it’s another method you shouldn’t skip. These are found all over the map, some of which are inside caves.
Speaking of which, you can find ore deposits containing diamonds inside caves around Hyrule. Of course the drop rate is low, but you’ll have a better chance if you smash Ore Deposits with a yellow glow.
