Similar to captured memory of BOTW, Zelda Tears of the Kingdom also has players running around and finding missing memories. This time, however, the flashback memories are collected from pools of Dragon’s Tears. These Zelda Tears of the Kingdom tears are actually puddles found within Geoglyphs on the ground which can only be seen clearly from the sky.
In these Zelda TotK Geoglyphs there are several tear-shaped designs but you need to find the one that looks filled. This is where there is an actual puddle on the ground created by the Dragon’s Tears. The moment you examine them a cutscene will start.
There are 12 Dragon’s Tears out of which you need to find 11 by exploring the map. The 12th Dragon’s Tear will reveal itself once you find all the other 11 Dragon Tears. Although it can be a bit tricky to find the exact location of the Geoglyphs in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, the real challenge starts when you have to find the Dragon’s Tear in a huge drawing with other Tears.
In the guide below we will mention the location and coordinates of each Dragon Tear to make it simple for you so, you don’t get lost when finding these Geoglyphs along with the Dragon Tears.
