The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a long game just like Breath of the Wild was. You will be spending a lot of time traversing the lands of Hyrule and completing quests. Your adventure will take you far and wide.

Just like in the game’s predecessor, the time of day is important. Certain gameplay mechanics require a certain time of day to take effect. Sometimes, shrines won’t activate until night. This guide will show you how to pass time in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

How to change time of day in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

You will begin your adventure on the Great Sky Island after awakening from a short slumber. With your lack of stamina, low hearts, and broken Master Sword, you will trudge yourself through the cave to meet Rauru.

Shortly after meeting Rauru, you will learn some of Link’s new abilities. As you are learning to survive, you will learn how to build your own campfire. This is what you need to change the time of day.

Once you build a campfire, walk up to it. You will see the option to sit. Press the A Button to rest near the fire. You will get the option of what time you want to rest to; morning, noon, or night.

You can also rest at cooking stations so you can recharge Link’s metaphorical batteries. Unfortunately, this mechanic does not help with weapon degradation or recharging energy cells. It only passes the time.

Changing the time of day is good for when you are stuck in a lightning storm and want it to end or if you are waiting for items like fire fruit or flint to respawn. The Kingdom of Hyrule is a large place so make sure you rest often to see what changes occur.
