Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom — How to Get Farosh Claw, Scale, Spike, and Fang in TotK

Here's our guide on how to get the Farosh Claw, Scale, Spike, and Fang in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Farosh has a lot of materials you’ll probably want to Fuse, but you won’t find this specific dragon anywhere but in the southwestern portion of the map in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Getting the Fuse materials off Farosh won’t be easy. You’ll want to avoid its electrocuting zaps and other pesky traps along the way. The rewards will be worth it, though: Farosh Claw, Farosh Scale, and more can be gotten by finding and dealing with this Lightning Dragon.

Where to Find Farosh

First things first: You have to find the dragon and its flight path before you can get the materials it holds. Farosh flies over the regions of Faron and Gerudo in the southwestern portion of the map.

The creature can be seen in the Surface and Sky Worlds as it emerges from the Chasm south of the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower. It will fly north, then east across Gerudo’s mountains and Faron’s grasslands. It will then head into the Chasm between Lake Hylia and Popla Foothills Skyview Tower.

For efficiency, I think it’s better to reach the dragon via one of the floating islands in Gerudo, as opposed to chasing it down to the Depths.

Moreover, because Farosh is the Lightning Dragon, it emits sparks of electricity from its body. Be careful not to touch these, as you can get zapped. Worse, if you’re gliding in mid-air, the temporary stun will cause you to plummet to your doom. I suggest wearing a special headgear like the Lightning Helm to avoid taking damage.

How to Get Farosh Scale and Farosh Spike

You can get Farosh Spikes and Farosh Scales off the back of the dragon. The Spikes are small crystals that you can pick up, whereas the Scales require you to hit the creature first. These are fairly rare, so once you get one, you’ll need to wait for a Blood Moon cycle before they refresh and are available again.

How to Get Farosh Claw and Farosh Fang

As for the Farosh Claw and Farosh Fang, both of these materials require you to glide in mid-air, then aim with your bow to slow down time. The claw material comes from the dragon’s toes / nails, and you need to get a lucky shot for them to drop. This item is also used for the Goddess of Courage side quest.

You can get the fang from the dragon’s mouth. You’ll need to shoot it while it’s open. If it falls, you must skydive all the way down to the ground so you can pick it up.

Farosh isn’t the only dragon to find that drops materials. Don’t forget that there are other dragons for you to discover, such as Naydra and Dinraal. Likewise, there’s the Light Dragon with its own unique reward. For other tips, strategies, and walkthroughs, visit our Zelda: TotK guides hub.
