Light Dragon Path in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

The first thing you need to be aware of here is that, unlike in Breath of the Wild, the positions of the Dragons are no longer affected by resting. Instead of this, they now have a move cycle that isn’t changed by the time of day. This also applies to the Light Dragon in Zelda TotK. And this means that you may end up spending a lot of time chasing it across the sky until you get lucky enough to get it where you want it.

So make your way to one of the highest Sky Islands. From there, you should be able to jump down and glide to the Light Dragon when it gets close. If you have the Autobuild ability and enough Zonaite Ore, you can likewise build a flying device that will let you approach it. As for us, we went to the Room of Awakening on Great Sky Island at noon and we built a flying device. After that, we waited for the white dragon to get close, launched the flying machine into the air and jumped off it, and then glided towards the dragon until we were on top of it. That’s how we managed to get the Master Sword from it.

Zelda Totk Light Dragon Path Location & Time

As for when does the Light Dragon appear in Zelda TotK and how to then find it – or if you are having trouble with the Light Dragon seemingly not appearing in TotK – there is actually a very reliable method to always know this. The first step is to find and cure the Great Deku Tree. Of course, this also requires that you beat Phantom Ganon, a very powerful boss.

After that, the Great Deku Tree is going to task you with the “Recovering the Hero’s Sword” quest. The good thing about this quest is that it is going to mark the precise location of the Light Dragon on your map at all times. So, as long as you have not yet completed this quest, you are always going to know precisely where the Light Dragon is and the Dragon of Light flight path it is taking. This is by far the easiest way to know where it is headed. But if you don’t want to bother with this quest, we also have the LD’s flight pattern marked in our gallery which you can see below. It is flying clockwise.
