How to Get the Great Eagle Bow in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

TotK Great Eagle Bow: Legacy of the Rito Quest and Requirements

As mentioned earlier, the Great Eagle Bow requires that you finish the entirety of the Hebra regional quest, which would grant you Tulin’s Sage Companion ability. Once that’s done, head back to the topmost section of Rito Village, where you’ll find Teba, Tulin’s father.

Talk to him, and he’ll offer to craft the weapon as part of the Legacy of the Rito quest. Here are the materials that you need:

  • 5x Wood — Easy enough to acquire since you just need to chop down trees and logs.
  • 3x Diamond — These can be found in precious ore deposits, such as those in the Sky World. Some are also rewarded in Shrines, like Jochi-Ihiga/Rock For Sale. Moreover, if you already have a single Diamond, you could just dupe the materials.
  • 1x Swallow Bow — There are a select few locations, such as the one we mention below.

Where to Find the Swallow Bow

The TotK Great Eagle Bow requires a single Swallow Bow. The location I went to is fairly easy to reach. From the Rospro Pass Skyview Tower, use the launch pad and glide a short distance to the west. There, you’ll find the Rito Flight Path area. The coordinates are (-3789, 2320, 0161).

There’s a nearby hut with an NPC. Right next to the fella is a Swallow Bow and some arrows. As far as I can tell, since the weapon is just out in the open, there’s a good chance that it will respawn each new Bloodmoon Cycle.

TotK Great Eagle Bow Stats

Once you have all the materials, return to Teba so you can obtain the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Great Eagle Bow. It has a +28 attack power rating. However, its main selling point is that it can fire up to three projectiles simultaneously, though the shot will only use up one arrow.

Another factor worth considering is that if the original item breaks and you need a replacement, you’ll just need to reacquire the materials and hand them over to Teba. Then again, I would also suggest just duping weapons to avoid the hassle.

That’s how to get the Great Eagle Bow in Tears of the Kingdom. You can find other regional legendaries/unique weapons throughout the campaign. Examples include the Lightscale Trident from Zora’s Domain, the Boulder Breaker from Goron City, and the Scimitar of the Seven/Daybreaker combo from Gerudo Town. Likewise, there are countless activities and mechanics in the game, so be sure to visit our Zelda: TotK guides hub for more tips, strategies, and walkthroughs.
