Where to find Sage’s Wills in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

New in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are Sages, which serve as companions who help you throughout the game. These Sages offer different abilities that all have their own unique benefits. These Sage abilities can actually be upgraded by using Sage’s Wills, and in this guide, we’ll show you how these items work and how to find them in Tears of the Kingdom.

What are Sage’s Wills?

Sage’s Wills are upgrade materials used to strengthen your bond with Sages in Tears of the Kingdom. Once you find them, you can utilize four Sage’s Wills to upgrade the power and effectiveness of one of the game’s five Sages.

The five Sages are as follows:

  • Yunobo, Sage of Fire
  • Riju, Sage of Lightning
  • Tulin, Sage of Wind
  • Sidon, Sage of Water
  • The Fifth Sage (spoilers)

Note that the fifth Sage is a spoiler and is part of a somewhat tricky quest found later on in the game. We won’t spoil it here, though, but suffice it to say, we recommend unlocking this Sage.

Once you find four Sage’s Wills, you’ll need to take them to one of the game’s Goddess Statues and use them to upgrade one of the Sages. Pray at the Goddess Statue, and you’ll get to pick which Sage you’d like to upgrade. Keep in mind, each Sage requires four Sage’s Wills to be upgraded. You can upgrade any Sage at any time, so we recommend picking whichever one you like using the most. We’re partial to Yunobo, since its ability is powerful, allowing you to hurl a firey ball at your foes with high damage.

But where exactly do you find the Sage’s Wills? So far, around 20 have been discovered, and you can find them in the Sky, all around the islands above. Much like the Korok Seeds, each Sage’s Will has a puzzle tied to it, and you’ll need to solve it to acquire the item. They’re scattered all around the Archipelagos, so be sure to look around and be thorough while exploring.

One thing to note is that — assuming there are only 20 Sage’s Wills — you’ll only be able to upgrade each of the Sage’s abilities once. Though, the attack power boost you gain from one upgrade is noticeable, so it’s absolutely worth finding as many Sage’s Wills as you can, so as to make some of the late-game battles easier.

The best Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom mods
Link giving a thumbs-up with a smile.

With the addition of the Ultra Hand and Fuse abilities in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, it might feel like you're already playing the game with mods enabled. This power lets you pick up, connect, build, and combine nearly every item in Hyrule. We've already seen people push the boundaries with what they can create using the default tools, but there will always be some things just out of reach for players. Well, that is until mods are entered into the equation. Because Tears of the Kingdom is a Switch game, mods take a bit more work to not only make but play as well. Unlike PC games, you can't just download a file, plop it in your game, and go. If you're willing to put in a little work, there are some amazing mods out there to add another couple dozen hours to your playtime. Here are the best mods in Tears of the Kingdom.
How to mod Tears of the Kingdom
If you are just looking to play mods, not create them, then the process isn't terribly complex. There is a nice tutorial laid out you can follow here, which also includes a link to the Tears of the Kingdom modding Discord where you can go if you need to ask more specific questions.
Rinkuru v0.5.3/Rinkuru Pronouns and Dialogue

For those a bit out of the loop, Rinkuru is the Japanese name for the female Link we know as Linkle from the Hyrule Warriors games. It has since been adapted to simply be the female version of Link. If you were disappointed that you couldn't play as a female in Tears of the Kingdom, these two mods effectively add in a female option. Rinkuru v0.5.3 is a complete model swap from Link to Rinkruru, including new outfits and even some weapons. The companion mod, Rinkuru Pronouns and Dialogue, changes all instances of game dialogue from referring to your character as Link, he, sir, and all other male pronouns are swapped to Rinkuru, she, lady, and so on to fully immerse you as the heroine of Hyrule.

The worst Zelda games ever made are getting a spiritual successor
A shopkeeper that looks a lot like Morshu in Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore.

The Legend of Zelda series inspires tons of indie games every year. They just usually don't take inspiration from the bad ones. That's exactly what we're getting with Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore, a new indie that draws inspiration from Zelda's infamous Philips CD-i era.

During Limited Run Games' third annual showcase, Seedy Eye Software and Limited Run revealed Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore, an "animated adventure" game inspired by Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon that will release later this year. If you don't know about Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, they are two infamously terrible The Legend of Zelda games that were officially licensed by Nintendo for the Philips CD-i. These side-scrolling adventure games played terribly and featured ugly full-motion video animated cutscenes with terrible voice acting. You've probably seen some memes featuring the characters and animation from these games. Because of how bad they are, these titles aren't really ones most developers look to for inspiration.
The developers of Arzette did, though.
Arzette | LRG3 Reveal Trailer
Its reveal trailer establishes that the titular Princess goes on a quest to defeat an evil being named Daimur. It's a 2D action platformer that looks like those two CD-i Zelda games, albeit one that looks a bit more fun to play. Its similarities to The Faces of Evil and The Wand of Gamelon become inescapable during cutscenes, as the characters, animation, and voice acting all look like they came straight out of those games.
In general, the Limited Runs Games Showcase this reveal was at was a wild one, with remasters for classic Jurassic Park games, Gex, Clock Tower, Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, Tomba!, and more announced. While we see odes to bad movies with films like The Disaster Artist and Ed Wood, we don't see that nearly as often with bad games.
That should make Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore enjoyable and terrible (in a good way) when it launches on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Steam in 2023.
