Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom – Clues To The Sky Quest Guide

Clues of Sky is one of the six quests you will be offered after completing the Broken Slate quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

In Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Clues to the Sky is part of the overarching quest called “Regional Phenomena“. Many quests are connected with this quest and Clues to the Sky is one of them.

You will receive a riddle in this quest and you have to decipher what it means and what you can do about it. There will be promise of something cool at the end so that is more than enough reason to do it.

Your first task will be to find where King Dorephan has gone since no one knows where he is. That, and find the location of the Land of the Sky Fish in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to start the Clues to the Sky quest

Clues to the Sky is a part of the Zelda: TotK main story missions. It will get appointed to you soon after completing the Broken Slate main quest.

You will be in the Toto Lake region when you will be given a riddle. It is now up to you to figure it out and find the clues.

The quest, despite being part of a larger quest, is a brief one and won’t take you a lot to do. You have to find where King Dorephan is, return back Toto Lake, and then find the last objective.


Here is all you need to do:

Let’s see how you can achieve these objectives.

Find King Dorephan

Although King Dorephan’s location is marked on the Zelda map in Toto Lake, it is not where he actually is. This is misleading because the King is somewhere else. You will start the quest by traveling to Zora’s Domain.

Head inside the room with a Throne next to a couple of NPCs. Climb the sides of the Throne and listen to the NPCs when the prompt appears.

They will reveal that he is currently in a cave found at Lulu Lake. Get there, talk to the King, and the objective will be completed. Read our guide for more details if you still have trouble.

Talk to Sidon

After talking to King Dorephan, the next order of business is talking to Sidon. He will be where you last talked to him during the Sidon of the Zora quest. He will be at Mipha Court.

Speak with him and share what you have learned so far.

Find the Land of the Sky Fish

Your next task will be to find where the Land of the Sky Fish is. This is Sky Fish Island due East of Mipha Court, where you currently will be. If you look behind Sidon, you’ll spot a fish-shaped flying Island with water flowing down from the mouth. That’s where you need to go and can do so easily

Get there and look for rocks with a green trail and then jump on one. Simply use the Recall ability to make it go back up and then jump onto the Sky Fish Island.

Keep your eyes open for a particular rock formation. It won’t look anything special but when they are aligned properly, will look like a water drop. You have to shoot the King’s Scale through this drop to complete the objective, and with it, the quest. If you still have trouble, read our guide for a step-by-step process.
