Zelda TOTK Hearty Bass Farming Locations

Finding the best Zelda TOTK Hearty Bass farming locations is not easy, which is why we’ve decided to put together a guide. This fish only appears in Sky Archipelago pools, and only a handful of them at that. There’s a reason for it; when cooked, this bass grants Link a ton of health. So, it’s worth to have a couple on hand. All of that being the case, let’s find out where it’s best to farm Hearty Bass in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.

Tears of the Kingdom Hearty Bass Locations

We have found two great locations for farming Hearty Bass in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom or TOTK. The first one is at the pool in the West Hebra Sky Archipelago, at these coordinates: -3889, 2805, 0702. Another one is the small, rectangular pool on Wellspring Island, and the coordinates are 3671, 0580, 1251. The only setback is that you’ll need to swim up a waterfall using the Zora armor to get up to that Sky Island. That’s also where the Water Temple is and the location of Mei in the Wife Wafted Away quest. Check out the maps below to see where to go. The description of the Hearty Bass does also mention the Tabantha Sky Archipelago, but we didn’t check there. Still, it’s worth a check.

How to Use Hearty Bass in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Okay, now we know the best locations for farming Hearty Bass in Zelda TOTK or Tears of the Kingdom, but what are they for? Well, eating them raw is fairly useless; it just returns two hearts. That’s a horrible waste. When cooked, it grants you full recovery (I believe up to thirty hearts) and some additional, temporary hearts. The more Hearty Bass you add to a single meal, the more temp hearts you get. However, for the most part, cooking one of these fish at a time should be more than enough for most of your needs. Using Hearty Bass in a recipe grants the meal the Hearty effect, aka gives Link temporary hearts.
