All Geoglyph/memory/tear/Zelda quest locations in Tears of the Kingdom

Here’s a full map of every memory

Recommended Videos

Early into the adventure, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will ask you to find Geoglyphs: which are attached to the all-new Zelda backstory. Here’s where to locate all of them and a few tips for the road!

What are Geoglyphs/tears?

Geoglyphs are the new form of obtaining memories (read: backstory) in Tears of the Kingdom. They function similarly to the “photo memories” in Breath of the Wild, and they are not required to complete the story. They have the appearance of crop circles and only appear in Hyrule: not high up in the sky islands or underground in the depths.

To trigger a memory, you need to find the titular “tear” inside of each Geoglyph (a small pool of water on the ground), which is marked off by a droplet icon on the map after you locate them. Note that these will in fact be on solid ground, and will never force the player to interact with them while scaling a wall.

We found them significantly easier to find than the photo locations, as Geoglyphs are highly visible when shooting out of Skyview Towers. You could get them all naturally just through exploration…or through our handy guide map.

The location of every Geoglyph in Hyrule

On the map above you’ll find the location of every Geoglyph in the game. Note the teardrop symbol is where that memory is exactly, so you won’t need to hunt.

Every digit on the map corresponds to the number of the memory (some of them require main story progress). The final yellow arrow indicates the last memory, which will pop after picking up the rest.

The Final Memory

Once you’ve acquired every Geoglyph memory, a final one will appear in the northeast corner of the map at the Rist Peninsula. Simply head there (the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower is the fastest route) and interact with the last memory to end the questline!

Remember to check for easy-to-find Koroks at Geoglyphs

Every Geoglyph generally has a Korok hiding either nearby, or in the Geoglyph formation itself. The easiest method to locate them is to pick up errant rocks on the ground.

Keep that in mind when hunting for Geoglyphs!
