The longest and most annoying Gerudo Orb to find is located in the Kara Kara Bazaar.

  4. Proceed to the Oasis Source, accessible through the well in Kara Kara Bazaar.
  5. At the well’s end, find the leader huddled near the sinkhole entrance. If he’s not there, try entering from the sinkhole just outside Kara Kara’s outskirts.

  7. Speak to the three men again, and they’ll reward you with the seventh orb for saving their leader.
  8. To transport the orb back to Gerudo Town, use Ultrahand to build a cart or sand buggy and attach the orb. Alternatively, walk back.

Gerudo Sanctuary

After visiting all orb locations Tears of the Kingdom and placing them in their designated positions, a hidden chamber will be unveiled beneath the floor. Within the chamber, Link will come across a colossal orb and a small tablet. The tablet provides instructions for Link’s next step: visiting the North Gerudo ruins and the Gerudo Sanctuary to claim the reward, which is the massive orb. 

It suggests that the massive orb will serve as the key to unlocking this mystery. Rotana requests Link’s assistance in carrying the enormous orb as they embark on this adventure together to uncover the truth.

  1. Reach the North Gerudo Ruins and locate a hole in the floor.
  2. Insert the Gerudo Orb into the corresponding indentation.
  3. Witness the opening of a gate, providing access to a new area beneath the Ruins.
  4. Progress through the underground tunnels and chambers until reaching the Statue of the Eighth Heroine Room.
  5. Explore the room and read the Stelae, which recounts the tale of the final Heroine.
  6. Return to Rotana to complete the quest and receive a Diamond as a reward for your efforts.

How To Start The Mysterious Eighth Side Quest

Before starting The Mysterious Eighth side quest in Tears of the Kingdom, complete The Seven Heroines’ Secret Quest in Gerudo Town. NPC Rotana, who is involved in The Seven Heroines’ Secret quest, will ask you to accompany her to another part of the Gerudo Shelter, which is finding all orb locations Tears of the Kingdom.

  • In the room, you will find a strange Orb at Rotana’s feet that you should bring with you.
  • Inside the room, there are seven stone statues, each holding out their hands.
  • Rotana believes that if you find all seven orb locations in tears of the kingdom and place them back in the statues’ hands, something significant will happen, potentially revealing the secret of the Eighth Heroine.
  • You already have the first Orb, but you need to find the remaining six scattered around the Gerudo Desert.

That’s it on the guide of The Mysterious Eighth quest, where you have to find all seven orb locations in Tears of the Kingdom. To travel quickly to the seventh orb, you can get the Best Horses; however, the Stable in Gerudo Region might be a little far, so make sure you get the horse before starting to find the orbs.

Getting yourself the Best Armor Set is also important, though; you won’t be getting into fights much while collecting the orbs, but you still can’t let your guard down.
