The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is full of various items, resources that will help you on your journey.. Diamonds are one of the rarest resources scattered around Hyrule, and they are well worth your time as they are both valuable and useful. Sure, you can sell them for 500 rupees each, but you can also slap one on a weapon to increase its damage by 25.

Unfortunately, Link does not have access to high pressure chamber (or even a microwave oven) to cook diamonds on their own, so you’ll have to send our sword-wielding boy into the wilderness to get them. Diamonds are rare, so it will take some time, but there are key things you can do to make your life easier as a diamond hunter.

And don’t worry, we’re not using an object multiplication defects for this (although you may choose to do so after acquiring a few diamonds). So this guide should be relevant even after many patches.

Get the Sensor+ to click on the locations of rare ore deposits

As you go through caves, you will find large, glistening black stones. These are rare ores. Start them with stone-melted weapons and you’ll probably find a diamond (same as in real life!). You’ll find rare ores in caves like the Passeri Greenbelt Cave west of Lookout Landing, the Upland Zorana Summit Cave south of the Upland Zorana Skyview Tower, and throughout Hyrule. , But ore is not always guaranteed to drop a diamond. Also, if you’ve recently cleared out a cave, there might be a chance for its items to respawn, but it’s hard to predict when that will happen.

Enter: Sensor+, a handy item that helps you find shrines and other various interesting items you can get from Robbie. You will find him first at Lookout Landing and will eventually follow him all the way to Hateno Ancient Tech Lab by “Hateno Village Research Lab.”. You still have to do part of the tasks. The flip side, however, is that along the way you get some very handy Autobuild and sensors to find shrines. So it’s like killing three pigs with one stone.

To get the Sensor+, complete the missions “To The Kingdom of Hyrule,” “Camera Work in the Depths,” one of the four “Regional Phenomena” missions, “A Mystery In The Depths,” and “Hateno Village Research Lab. These quests will take you a while, so expect to spend at least a full game session of over an hour at least to get through these.

This last quest, by the way, will task you with photographing five different types of monsters. So why not knock them out beforehand. And while we’re at it, go ahead and forge some rare ore before you blast it to smithereens.

How do you find diamonds in TOTK?

So, once you get your Sensor+, it allows you to ping specific items, creatures, and other entries in the Hyrule Compendium. You need to take a picture of the item or creature to add it. For our purposes, you should jump into the map, press Y, and select a rare ore. Now your sensor will click you when you are near ore. Depending on the size of various caves, this means you can tour different caves, listen for the ping sound and go in and smash rocks.

But here’s the thing: You’re not always a guaranteed diamond. If you’re feeling particularly frugal, you could save before unlocking each one, reloading when you can’t find a diamond. It’s a little difficult because of all the loading times, but it might work for you. I won’t judge you if you do this (mostly not, anyway).

Overall, touring the map to various caves you’ve either visited or not, with Sensor+ set to click on ores is one of the most direct ways to get diamonds.

Other places to find diamonds Tears of the state

Rare ore is the most common and probably the most lucrative place to score diamonds. But that’s not all. Various shrine chests, as well as regular chests in Hyrule can contain diamonds, so get to work and open as many as you can.

You can too take down Talus enemies as they are likely to drop diamonds as well.

You can also go to Dondon’s Shrine located in Bronas Forest and feed Dondon’s Luminous Stones, which you can get from glowing ore in caves or from enemies of Talus. Feed Dondon’s Luminous Stones and you’re likely to get a diamond. But since this involves finding one resource to turn into another (not to mention it’s, uh, kind of rough?), I think it’s more direct to just go straight for diamonds.

Finally, if you have good rupee farming method and are only willing to get diamonds for their increased attack power, you can buy them directly from a shop in Goron City for 1000 rupees each (where they can sell for 500, this is a total loss if you’re hoping to resell ’em ).

But whether you’re looking to cash in some diamonds for rupees, increase your attack power, or just walk around with a full pocket for some reason, one of the best ways to get your hands on a Sensor+ is to tap on some rare ores. looking for potential diamond sites.
