Where to find diamonds in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Diamonds are one of the best resources in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, as they sell for 500 Rupees and offer 25 attack power when fused to weapons. Since they’re so valuable, they’re tricky to find, with only a handful of ways to get your hands on them.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to find diamonds in Tears of the Kingdom.

There are five Shrines in the game that reward you with diamonds. These Shrines are different from the rest and feature Rauru’s Blessings, which play differently than you might be used to. We won’t spoil them here, but we will list the five Shrines that yield diamonds:

  • Yomizuk Shrine
  • Jochi-ihiga Shrine
  • Mayaotaki Shrine
  • Sihajog Shrine
  • Maoikes Shrine

After completing a puzzle to enter each Shrine, you simply need to approach the chests to acquire a diamond.


Likewise, you can collect diamonds from chests around Hyrule. There’s a chest containing a diamond under Hyrule Castle and you can find it under a floor grate. But be sure to keep your eyes peeled as you play since there are many chests in the game, some of which contain diamonds.

You can also defeat Talus enemies around the map for a chance at earning diamonds. The drop rate is low, but it’s yet another method you shouldn’t skip. These are found all around the map, some of which are inside caves.

Ore Deposits

Speaking of which, you can find Ore Deposits containing diamonds inside caves around Hyrule. Of course, the drop rate is low, but you’ll have a higher chance if you smash Ore Deposits with a yellow glow.

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular consoles Nintendo has ever produced, with a wide variety of games to choose from and plenty of unique features. We’ve already gotten to play new entries across the Zelda, Super Mario, and Pokémon series on Nintendo Switch, but there are still plenty of great games on the way for the hybrid console. These include exclusive games developed internally by Nintendo, as well as third-party titles and ports of games that are also available on other platforms.

Here's our list of the best upcoming Nintendo Switch games for 2023 and beyond. Of course, some titles without release windows could skip the Switch entirely and wind up on Nintendo's next-gen console.

Where to find all inventory upgrades in Alan Wake 2
Saga stands in front of an evidence board in Alan Wake 2.

While the first Alan Wake game certainly had plenty of scares and horror in it, the mechanics were not as strictly of the survival horror variety. Alan Wake 2 has gone fully in this direction, however, with a much darker tone, disturbing imagery, and restrictive combat mechanics that sustain the tension when The Taken attack.

Aside from limited ammo, low health, and tough enemies to bring down, a key aspect of survival horror games is an inventory system. The first game let you hold essentially as much ammo, batteries, and weapons as you wanted in each chapter, but the sequel introduces a grid system that will look familiar to Resident Evil fans. Just like Resident Evil, your inventory starts off quite small, but you can see there is plenty of space for it to grow. There are specific items hidden in and around Bright Falls that can let you expand your carrying capacity, but many are well hidden in dark corners. Here are the locations of every inventory upgrade in Alan Wake 2.

When does Hogwarts Legacy come out on Nintendo Switch?

Hogwarts Legacy is the latest and greatest adventure in the magical Harry Potter universe. Set in the 1800s, the story focuses on a generic fifth-year student who’s tasked with taking down a brewing Goblin rebellion in-between their school duties. For Potterheads of all ages, a game that allows them to traverse the halls of Hogwarts, learn their favorite spells from the books and films, and fight enemies like dark wizards, trolls, and dragons is an absolute dream.

The game launched on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC in February. While reviews were mixed across the board, longtime fans jumped into the wizarding world in droves — over 15 million copies of the game have been sold to date. Unfortunately, players on the top-tier consoles were the only ones who had access to the game for a while. Instead of launching on all platforms simultaneously, Hogwarts Legacy's release has been staggered.
