How to Light Up Dark Areas in Zelda TOTK

Following are some of the ways you can use to light up dark areas in Tears Of The Kingdom. With these options, you will have a smoother exploration of areas that are dark and inaccessible without light.

Launching Brightbloom Seeds

Brightbloom Seeds are your best bet to light up places like depths, groves, and caves. The darkness can seem never-ending in such places and launching some of these seeds would just do the trick for you. These Seeds can be found inside caves that have a reasonable amount of light source. You can then throw them in the air or fuse them with your arrows to launch them into dark areas. This will brighten up the part where the seed lands. Brightbloom Seeds can also be found in larger sizes. Launching these would increase the radius of the area that lights up.

Miner’s Armor Set lets you do the same thing that Brightbloom Seeds do of lighting up areas. But unlike Brightbloom Seeds you won’t have to launch it every time instead wearing it would grant you an area to light up around you. With this, you can explore the depths freely and without worrying about it running out. You can find the armor set with the use of Old Treasure Maps.

Cooking up Elixirs
