Flowers and herbs are ingredients that can be cooked or mixed to create armor or weapons. When cooked, some even provide a flavor to the food. Players of Tears of the Kingdom who require increased attack power, weather resistance, and other abilities can benefit from knowing which plant or flower does what.
In order to make armor or weapons, flowers and herbs can be cooked or combined. Even some of them add taste to the food when it is cooked. Knowing which plants and flowers do particular functions can be helpful for Tears of the Kingdom players who need stronger attacks, better weather resistance, and other talents.
Swift Violet Locations
The Gerudo Highlands, Tabantha Frontier, and Hebra Mountains are all places where swift violets can be found. If players follow the main quest “Regional Phenomena”‘s recommended route, they will pass through Tabantha Frontier and Hebra Mountains in search of “Tulin of Rito Village.” As a result, early in a new game, Swift Violets can be farmed.
For Link to be wandering about in, the Gerudo Highlands is an extremely chilly place. Swift Violets can be found on the cliffs of Hemaar’s Descent if players travel to the Gerudo Highlands’ northern cliffs. Travel north past Mystathi’s Shelf starting at the Gerudo Summit. From the Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower (-3966, -1260, 0426), one can walk to the summit itself.
In the Hebra Mountains, near -4070, 3183, and 0183, swift violets can be found. This is south of Hebra North Summit, which players can access by taking off from the Rospro Pass Skyview Tower (-3684, 2343, 0233), and north of Sturnida Basin. Considering how freezing this place is, be sure to have level 2 cold resistance.
Swift Violets can also be found in the Tanagar Canyon, namely in the area of -2790, 1641, 0122. North of the Hyrule Ridge Chasm, on the other side of Tanagar Canyon, is where this is located (-2461, 1129, 0162). Players can also get to these canyon coordinates by traveling east from the Oromuwak Shrine or the Lucky Clover Gazette (-3079, 1618, 0243).
Availability of Swift Violets
In Zora’s Domain, swift violets are available for purchase at the general store. There are 40 Rupees in one Swift Violet. There will be a 120 Rupee price tag if Link desires all three Swift Violets. Every 24 hours during game time, the general store will be replenished. Waiting at a campfire or taking a nap in an inn are two ways that players might pass the time. It is advised that players wait to purchase Swift Violets until they have acquired the necessary armor because Swift Violets are rather expensive and diamonds are hard to come by.
Quick Tips for Violet Farming
In order to successfully farm Swift Violets, keep the following in mind:
Swift Violets can flourish in places where the temperature is dangerously low. Link will need to have heat resistance that is at least level 2. If they have the cash, players can use it at Rito Village to get two pieces of the Snowquill Set. If not, Link should receive a temporary bonus that makes him resistant to the cold after cooking a meal with heated ingredients (such spicy peppers). Equipping a flame-based weapon, such as a melee weapon or shield fused with ruby, is a further method of warding off the cold.
Stamina Wheels and Stamina Recovery
Link will have to climb several steep cliffs only to get to a bundle of violets because some of them are high up. Eat Restless Crickets and a monster component to make stamina elixirs, or purchase climbing equipment. The stamina needed to “jump while climbing” will be considerably diminished if the ascending Set is upgraded to level 2. It is advised to have more than one stamina wheel when searching in a place like the Gerudo Highlands.
Sensor & Camera
A Swift Violet can be photographed by players with the Camera, and that image will then be included in the Hyrule Compendium. Swift Violets can be located nearby if the player has the Sensor+. It is strongly advised to purchase the Sensor+ given how violets grow on cliffs.
What to do if you don’t have a camera or sensor+ is as follows:
- The “Camera Work in The Depths” side quest grants access to the Camera. After turning on the first Skyview Tower, go back to Lookout Landing and talk to Purah and Josha. Once there, speak to either Robbie or Josha to obtain “Camera Work in The Depths.” Once this is finished, both the Hyrule Compendium and Link’s Abilities will include the Camera.
- Go to the Great Plateau and enter The Depths from one of its Chasms after finishing one of the “Regional Phenomena” quests (“Tulin of Rito Village,” “Yunobo of Goron City,” “Sidon of Zora’s Domain,” or “Riju of Gerudo Town”).
- The Great Abandoned Central Mine is where you can find the Auto-Build Ability. Show Josha this, and then use Auto-Build to fix Robbie’s hot air balloon.
- When you speak with Robbie, he will inform you that he is returning to Hateno Village’s Ancient Tech Lab.
- Speak with Robbie at the lab once he arrives in Hateno to start the side quests for enhancing the Purah Pad. This includes “Presenting Sensor+.” To receive the Sensor+, take a picture of a monster and show it to Robbie.
Uses for Swift Violets
Swift Violets are acceptable as a food item because they are flowers. Link’s movement speed will momentarily increase if one is dropped into a pot of food to hasten the meal’s preparation. Some of the meals that may be presented to Malanya in exchange for upgrading horses can also be prepared using Swift Violets.
Swift Violets can also be fused to a player’s arrows and weapons. However, because it only has a Fuse Power of 1, it won’t cause much harm. Cooking with them or grinding them up at Kochi Dye Shop in Hateno Village to generate purple dye are both preferable.
For the Nintendo Switch, there is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
