How to Unlock Great Fairy TOTK

Finding out how to unlock the Great Fairy in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is very useful, because these entities can upgrade your clothing / armor. It’s pretty obvious how that can be a huge advantage. As a result, the game expects you to go on quite the adventure before you can interact with a single Fairy, let alone the other three (other four, technically). In this guide, we are going to give you a brief explanation on how to free the Great Fairies in Zelda TOTK.

How to Unlock Great Fairy TOTK

To unlock access to a Great Fairy in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you have to jump through quite a lot of hoops. But, hey, it’s about the journey, and this one is going to take you all over the place. As we’ve covered in detail in our Zelda TOTK Great Fairy, Musical Troupe With Violin guide, the first entity you can free is called Tera. She lives near Woodland Stable, and wants to hear a violin. So, you talk to the musicians near the stable, then go become a journalist at the Lucky Clover Gazette near Pico Lake and talk to the musicians again. You repair their cart and drive them over to Tera. That’s a lot, but we’re not close to done.

So, that’s how you unlock the first Great Fairy in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. When you do, she marks the locations of her three sisters, Cotera, Mija and Kaysa. And after you’ve used Tera’s services, you’ll get the message that the Great Fairy is not strong enough. To keep upgrading your clothing, you’ll need to release her sisters. Each of them wants to hear a different instrument, and it’s a whole thing every time. Check out the following guides for more detailed info: Sound of a Drum Cotera Great Fairy, Sound Of a Flute Zelda TOTK Kaysa Great Fairy and Sound of a Horn Zelda TOTK Mija Great Fairy. On top of all of that, there’s the fifth fairy, Malanya. This creature is the god of horses, and can upgrade and revive your mount. Check out our Horse God Location guide to find out where they live.
