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.

How to find Sage’s Wills

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 weapons in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Prior to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link's arsenal of weapons was usually limited to a couple of options. You could count on having a sword, a ranged weapon like a bow, and a handful of other weapons. But since The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom continues with the weapon durability system from that game, Link will be swapping out weapons far more frequently.

Since just about anything can be used as a weapon, even a stick, the power difference between the worst and best weapons is massive. Just as massive, however, is the size of Hyrule this time around. That can make the best, more unique weapons far more difficult to get your hands on. If you're trying to gear up before taking the fight to Ganon, here are the best weapons and where to find them in Tears of the Kingdom.

All weapon Passive Abilities in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Thanks to the weapon durability system returning in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom from Breath of the Wild, you will be swapping out weapons all the time. At first, you will only be concerned with having something to defend yourself with, but eventually, you will acquire a nice stash of tools to dispatch your many foes. At this point, you will start comparing damage numbers, but that's not the only factor you should consider when deciding which weapon to wield. Passive Abilities are granted to some weapons that give them a special trait that can make them more useful than they seem at first. To better understand your arsenal, here are all the Passive Abilities in Tears of the Kingdom and what they do.
All Passive Abilities

Passive Abilities are buffs that a specific weapon can come with to give it an edge of some form. You can see the name of a Passive Ability under a weapon when you're quick-switching, or examining a weapon in your inventory. There are 15 possible Passive Abilities in Tears of the Kingdom that are well worth learning about. Also know that if you fuse a weapon with a Passive Ability, it will transfer over to your new fused weapon, so don't worry about losing any buffs by fusion.

Charged Attack Stamina Up
- Consumes less stamina for charged attacks.

Zeldas: Tears of the Kingdom players are creating an industrial revolution

I expected a lot of cool contraptions to be built when Nintendo revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the long-awaited sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, was going to have a full crafting system. What I didn't expect, though, was that fans would bring a full-on industrial revolution to Hyrule using Ultrahand.

In this new open-world Zelda title, players are given the ability to put together doohickeys of all shapes and sizes. Whether you're making a caveman-style hammer by attaching a simple rock to a stick or a flying boat with a turbo-fan engine to take flight, there seems to be something for every class of player to mold from their imagination. But some players are going even further, creating machinery that calls back to history's own evolution.
