How to complete Mired in Muck in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Once you reach the entrance of the Upland Zorana Skyview Tower, you will see Bazz crying for help. He will be trapped under the nasty sludge and won’t be breathing properly as his gills are covered.  


Bazz will tell you that the only way to help him is to wash away the sludge with some clean water.

There are two ways to wash off the sludge. The first one is to take a Hydrant out from your inventory and use it on Bazz. The other one is to make use of the Splash Fruit. You can pick them off the plant nearby behind a large rock.

You can use an arrow to shoot the Splash Fruit at Bazz. This will clear away the sludge letting Bazz breathe freely. Now you can go talk to Bazz who will thank you and give you a Zora Spear in return.
