Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom features a side quest titled “The Mysterious Eighth,” during which you must find seven orbs scattered throughout Gerudo Town. In this guide, I detail how to find all seven orb locations and complete the quest.
The Mysterious Eighth Quest requires finding seven orbs scattered throughout Gerudo Town and Kara Kara Bazaar.
The first orb is near Rotana’s feet at the start.
Two orbs are in the Gerudo Shelter, one in the bar and one in the sleeping quarters.
Three orbs are in Gerudo Town: one near the Sand Seal enclosure, one at the top of a tower near Gerudo Palace, and one as a reward for completing Dalia’s Game.
The last orb is in Kara Kara Bazaar and is given to you after finding Ponthos.
Unlock the Eighth Giant Orb:
Collect all seven orbs to unlock an eighth giant orb.
The Mysterious Eighth is a quest that requires you to find seven orbs scattered throughout Kara Kara Bazaar and Gerudo Town. This quest comes right after you finish “The Heroine’s Secret” and is tough to crack since the orbs are hard to locate.
Interact with Rotana: In the chamber with the statues, interact with Rotana to officially initiate the “The Mysterious Eighth” quest.
Find the Seven Orbs: You must locate seven orbs throughout Kara Kara Bazaar and Gerudo Town. Each orb corresponds to a unique symbol.
Place Orbs in Statues: Return to the chamber with the statues once you’ve found all seven orbs. Each statue has a unique symbol on its arm corresponding to the symbol on one of the orbs. Place each orb in its respective slot in the statue’s arms.
Unleash the Eighth Heroine: After you’ve placed all seven orbs in the statues, this action is speculated to unleash the Eighth Heroine.
Here are all of the seven orb locations:
Orb 1 Location
Coordinates: -3884, -2971, 0033
The first orb is, interestingly, easy to find.
Before you enter the Heroine chamber, while Rotana is talking to you, you’ll see an orb right by the White Stelae she was talking to.
This will look like a black sphere with a specific logo on it. It’s hard to miss if you’ve noted the symbols on the statues.
If you missed the orb the first time, you can always return to the room and get the orb at any time.
Use the Ultrahand ability to pick this orb and take it back to the room with the Heroine statues.
Place the orb that has the corresponding symbol on the palms of the statue.
Orb 2 Location
Coordinates: -3912, -2928, 0037
Go to Gerudo Shelter.
Reach the sleeping quarters near the prison and bar.
Locate the orb in one of the sleeping quarters.
Stand below it, and use the Ascend ability to reach it.
Use the Ultrahand ability to grab the orb.
Return to the Heroine statues and place the orb in the correct one.
Orb 3 Location
Coordinates: -3902, 2927, 0030
Go to the Gerudo Shelter’s bar near the sleeping quarters, where you will find the second orb.
Travel to the right side of the Gerudo Shelter.
Locate the orb on the bar’s floor near an empty table.
Use the Ultrahand ability to retrieve it.
Return to the Heroine statues and place the orb in the matching statue.
Orb 4 Location
Coordinates: -3878, -2899, 0047
Now, you’ll need to travel to Gerudo Town via the main gate to this settlement.
Upon entering the town, take a sharp left.
Proceed to the Sand Seal enclosure, but don’t enter it.
Instead, look for a small flight of stairs to a storage space.
In the storage room, locate a Gerudo Spear.
Next to the spear, you’ll find the orb.
Use the Ultrahand ability to grab it.
Return to the Heroine statues and place the orb in the corresponding statue.
Orb 5 Location
Coordinates: -3814, -2874, 0043
Head to the main entrance of Gerudo Town.
Take a sharp right.
You’ll easily spot the orb in this area.
Before you can pick it up, you’ll encounter Dalia, who prevents you from getting the orb.
Dalia will request you to play a game, “Dalia’s Game,” which involves finding her Sand Seal plushie hidden in the Gerudo Shelter.
Return to the shelter and find the room with several training dummies; the plushie is there.
Give the plushie to Dalia.
She’ll then give you the fifth orb.
Return to where you found the orb, and use the Ultrahand ability to pick it up.
Travel back to the Gerudo Shelter and place it in the corresponding Heroine statue.
Orb 6 Location
Coordinates: -3801, -2974, 0060
Return to Gerudo Town.
Head towards the Gerudo Palace.
Just before entering the palace, go to the left, where you’ll spot the ruins of a long tower.
Below this tower is a small cabin that allows you to use the Ascend ability to reach the tower’s top.
Alternatively, you can climb the tower to reach the roof if you don’t have the Ascend ability.
You’ll find a heap of sand in the middle of the tower’s roof.
Use the Korok Leaf to blow away the sand and reveal the 6th orb.
If you don’t have the Korok Leaf, you can use a Fan Zonai Device as an alternative.
Orb 7 Location
Coordinates: -3273, -2584, 0023
Travel to Kara Kara Bazaar, located northwest of Gerudo Town.
You’ll spot two Hylian men looking towards Gerudo Town at the bazaar. The final orb is by their feet.
To obtain the orb, you must first find their leader, Ponthos.
Find Ponthos through the Kara Kara Bazaar well. Go from the well to the Oasis Source, where you’ll find Ponthos near the entrance to the sinkhole.
Return to the two men and speak with them to receive the final orb.
Return to the Gerudo Shelter and place the seventh orb in its designated slot in the remaining statue to complete the quest.
Gerudo Sanctuary – The Eighth Orb
Now that you’ve found all orb locations and inserted all seven orbs in their respective places, something interesting will happen. The floor will quake, and a secret passage will open in the center of the statues.
Enter the passage to find a giant orb and a plaque revealing the location of the last Heroine statue in the Gerudo Sanctuary.
The Gerudo Sanctuary is beneath the North Gerudo Ruins, north of Gerudo.
Your task is transporting the giant orb to the Gerudo Sanctuary using the Ultrahand ability.
Place the orb in the giant recess on the floor inside the North Gerudo Ruins to activate a passage leading to the Gerudo Sanctuary below.
Clear out any Gibdo enemies in the sanctuary before proceeding.
Navigate through the complex area beneath the ruins, following the paths to reach the Statue of the Eighth Heroine Room, marking the quest’s conclusion.
Explore the room for chests containing Gerudo weapons and gems, and Stelae provides essential lore.
Interact with Rotana in the room to complete the quest.
Is It Worth It?
By completing the quest, you will receive the following:
A Silver Rupee.
Finding all of the Gerudo orbs is tough, but it is definitely worth the trouble with these rewards. Luckily, you now know how to find these orbs and what’s waiting for you at the quest’s end.
To recap, you find seven orbs as part of “The Mysterious Eighth.” side quest. Three orb locations in Tears of the Kingdom are in the Gerudo Shelter, where you start the quest. The others are in Gerudo Town, one in Kara Kara Bazaar.
