Sound of a Drum Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Cotera Great Fairy

The Great Fairy called Cotera in Zelda TOTK or Tears of the Kingdom resides near the stables in West Necluda, and wants to hear the sound of a drum before she will exit her flower. Even if you do run into the drummer, he won’t budge for reasons we’ll get into in a bit. If you go into the stables and talk to the NPC reading the papers, Sheeko, she’ll tell you about another Fairy near Woodland Stables.

Now, we have a whole separate guide on the Woodland Stable Great Fairy, Tera, but here’s the quick rundown. You go to the stables and talk to some musicians standing nearby. Then, you head way over to the Lucky Clover Gazette and become a journalist. After that, you return and talk to the musicians, fix their cart, and take them to the Fairy. After all that’s done, you can begin to solve the Cotera situation.
