Knowing the locations for all of the Lightroots in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is extremely important when you venture into the Depths. Due to the sheer darkness and the hazards of the Gloom debuff, it can be tough to roam around.

However, once you’ve interacted with a Lightroot, not only will you reveal that area of the map, but you’ll also cleanse any effects of Gloom. And, naturally, they’ll act as fast travel points, too.

In any case, I’ve included my fully revealed Depths map in the image above, with the Lightroot locations marked. Make sure to bookmark this guide or save the image for future use while you’re exploring in-game.

How to Find and Tag Lightroot Locations

You might be wondering how to tag Lightroots in TotK, knowing that the Depths World is hard to explore. Well, I’ve got a few handy tips to keep in mind:

  • The most important facet is this: the locations of Shrines in the Surface realm mirror that of Lightroots in the Depths. In fact, the names of Shrines and their Lightroot counterparts are just reversed.
  • For instance, let’s say you spotted the Turakamik Shrine in the Surface realm. If you open the Surface map and press down on the D-pad for the Depths map, the Kimakarut Lightroot will be right at that exact spot.
  • With the above in mind, as long as you’ve tagged Shrines, you can simply put pins or markers on the relevant locations in the Depths. Even if the area hasn’t been revealed yet, the Lightroot is guaranteed to be there.
  • To aid in exploration, you can try building a Hoverbike. It’s relatively cheap in terms of Zonaite cost, and it’ll help you navigate your surroundings a lot faster.

All Lightroot Locations: The Dispelling Darkness Medal Reward

Once you’ve tagged all Lightroot locations in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll receive the Dispelling Darkness Medal. As of the time of this writing, I’ve found no actual use for it. It’s simply a key item that’s part of the inventory.

That’s how to find all of the Lightroot locations in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Don’t forget to head to Forge Constructs in the Depths, too. These abandoned mines tend to have new schematics, as well as Zonai/Crystallized Charges for exchange.
