Legend Of Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom: How To Unlock The Map

May 10, 2023

Upon starting your adventure in The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll find yourself on the Great Sky Island, a floating island above the Kingdom of Hyrule.

After landing on the Great Sky Island, you’ll meet a Steward Construct, who will hand you the Purah Pad, Princess Zelda’s priced device. The device allows you to see the Character Profiles, Adventure Log, Album, as well as the Map.

At the beginning of the game, you can open the map of the Great Sky Island to see the topography and all the landmarks and shrines you discover.

But after you leave the Great Sky Island and reach the Kingdom of Hyrule, you’ll notice the map is vast, sprawling, and obscured by a fog of war.

Luckily, there is a way to reveal the whole map, and in the following guide, we will provide you with all the information on how to unlock the entire map of Legend Of Zelda ToTK.

As you try to open the door to the Temple of Time, you will meet Rauru, the Source of the Right Arm. Unfortunately, the arm lost the power to open the door.

But there is a way to restore its power, and Rauru suggests visiting the following Great Sky Island Shrines:

Once you’ve completed all three Shrines in Great Sky Island, you are tasked to finish one more shrine, known as Nachoyah Shrine, in order to open the door at the back of the temple.

During this objective, you’ll unlock the fast-travel option, allowing you to travel to certain places instantly.

After touching the light in the Temple of Time and hearing Princess Zelda say, “Link, you must find me.”, it’s time to dive from the Great Sky Island to reach the Kingdom of Hyrule.

Then, follow the objective marker on the minimap to the Lookout Landing to meet Purah, the Head of Lookout Landing and the inventor of Purah Pad.

She will ask you to find Hoz, the captain in charge of the search for Princess Zelda, below the Hyrule Castle during the Crisis at Hyrule Castle main quest.

After you meet with Captain Hoz, your conversation will be interrupted by Princess Zelda, who appears in the distance, then transforms into light and flies off.

Return to Purah, and once you tell her that Princess Zelda disappeared into light at Hyrule Castle, she urges you to expand your search to other areas of Hyrule that are also being affected by the Upheaval.

Purah wants to mark these locations on your map, but you’ll first need to add some map data to your Purah Pad. To do so, you’ll have to visit Skyview Towers around the Kingdom of Hyrule.

You can use the Skyview Towers to survey the area, and the Purah Pad will scan the topography directly onto the map.

During this conversation with Purah, you’ll unlock the Paraglider, allowing you to ride the wind and glide through the sky.

Enter the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower, step into the blue circle, and press (A) to start being launched high into the sky, where you’ll scan the nearby terrain from the air.
