One complaint some of us had with Breath of the Wild was that Rupees did not seem like a valuable enough currency. However, Nintendo has switched up the formula, making it important to know how to get Rupees fast in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.

This is because they have greatly increased the scarcity of Rupees throughout Hyrule. Moreover, the items you can purchase with Rupees have become a lot more valuable, and there are various activities that require plenty of Rupees. Therefore, we have prepared a guide to help you collect Rupees fast in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.

How to get rupees fast in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Brightbloom Flowers method

The Brightbloom Flower is a luminescent new fauna that can be found most commonly in the newly introduced underground caverns of Tears of the Kingdom.

These caverns are expansive and often illuminated by these flowers. You can get your hands on a large amount of these flowers via exploration. While they are not very profitable individually, once you're able to stock up on them, these sell for a pretty penny at nearby vendors. So consider farming for Brightbloom Flowers a viable early game method for earning Rupees.

Ore farming method

Ore remains a valuable commodity in Tears of the Kingdom. You can sell ore at some pretty good prices to get Rupees fast. You can fuse ore with arrows and weapons for some powerful upgrades, but earlier in the game, we suggest that you sell away all the ore that you happen upon. A reliable method of farming ore is picking fights with Stone Talus and the Stone Pebblits for rare minerals. We recommend using explosives and hammerlike weapons to ensure larger amounts of ore drops.

Farming dragon parts

Dragon parts were extremely valuable as elixir materials and resources in Breath of the Wild. Similar to ore, this also remains consistent in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. Farosh, Naydra, and Dinraal were the three dragons whose parts sold for luxurious amounts in the original. In Tears of the Kingdom, you can find Farosh at Shoda Sah Shrine in the morning time near a waterfall. Similarly, you just need to learn the patterns of the other dragons to ensure a quick and efficient farming method.

Once the Dragon material farming path is perfected it is likely to become the best method to get Rupees fast.

Until then, these are the best methods that we currently know of. We will update you with more information as we discover new information about the game. To learn more about Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom check out our guide on how to get more bombs and our review for the game.
