Back in the day of Breath of the Wild, many players had to run around to collect memories. These memories told the story of what happened in the past with Princess Zelda, the champions, and the Divine Beasts.

In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you are running through the same land of Hyrule. This time, however, the world has been altered. There are now new shrines, secrets, and no Master Sword. Does The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom have memories as well?

Are there memories in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

In short, the Tears of the Kingdom does indeed have memories. This time, they come in the form of Dragon Tears. After the events of the start of the game, you will wind up on the Great Sky Island with the goal of defeating the Demon King and finding Zelda.

After exploring the world for a bit, you may discover a massive glyph covering part of the land. These geoglyphs each hold a Dragon Tear. When you discover your first one, it will start a side quest for Impa.

Each geoglyph you discover will give you a small bit of story just like the memories did in Breath of the Wild. This time, the story will show you the events of the war that happened in the distant past.

How to find geoglyphs in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

There are a total of 12 geoglyphs for you to discover across Hyrule. Each one of these glyphs is rather massive and can easily be seen when standing on one of the many sky islands. The geoglyph locations are in the following areas:

  • Hyrule Ridge
  • Hebra
  • Eldin Canyon
  • West Necluda
  • Gerudo Desert
  • Tabantha
  • Lanayru
  • Great Hyrule Forest
  • Akkala

Some regions have multiple glyphs for you to discover. Not only do they tell the story of the past, but they also tell the story of Queen Sonia and King Rauru of Hyrule as they fought back against the Demon King. There are plenty of other discoveries to be made like the locations of all 15 of the Skyview Towers.
