The Great Fairy Fountains are large flowers home to Great Fairies and can be found across Hyrule. These fountains and their fairy inhabitants will allow players to improve their armor with increased defenses and abilities if they can unlock and have the necessary materials needed. These include resistance to weather conditions and increased attack power. Each fountain offers a different level of upgrading capabilities, so players will need to find the other fountains to get the best upgrades. With the multitude of new armor sets in Tears of the Kingdom, there is a ton of options for players to use on their adventures.

How to Unlock Great Fairy Fountains

Unlike Breath of the Wild, you will need to complete a side quest in order to unlock each of the Great Fairies. Some players have found that they need to visit the Lucky Clover Gazette to start these quests, but we’re not sure. If you find that the Giant Fairy quests have not appeared for you, make your way to Rito Village and get that sorted before working on them.
