The Legend of Zelda series is best known for its environmental puzzles, and Tears of the Kingdom is no stranger to this, pushing the sandbox formula to even greater heights with harder riddles, but a certain watery bridge is causing players quite a bit of confusion. Finding the Watery Bridge, Droplet and supposed Land of the Sky Fish mentioned during the Clues to the Sky questline in Zora’s Domain is a little trickier than a simple shrine puzzle, you’ll need to explore and keep a sharp eye out for the answer around the world map. Fortunately, we’ve done the legwork and have the answers right here. Here’s what you need to know the Clues to the Sky questline, including where to find the Watery Bridge.
How to Solve the Clues to the Sky Quest Riddle
First things first: we’d highly recommend completing the “Restoring the Zora Armor” quest before continuing on if you haven’t already. The ability to swim up waterfalls is going to be necessary for access to the upcoming dungeon and makes the Clues to the Sky quest a little simpler.
After restoring the ancient Zora slate with Jiahto, revealing the riddle, and locating King Dorephan in the Pristine Sanctum, you’ll find yourself with a few King’s Scales on hand. As per the ancient riddle, you’ll need to shoot one through a droplet on the Land of the Sky Fish to gain access to the watery bridge.
Land of the Sky Fish Location
The Land of the Sky Fish is found within the Lanayru Sky Archipelago, which you can see to the east of and above Mipha’s court. Take a look at your map and open the Sky layer by pressing up on the d-pad, a suspiciously fish-shaped sky island is what we’re looking for, called Floating Scales Island.
You can access Floating Scales Island in multiple ways. With the Zora Armor equipped, simply glide over and you’ll automatically swim up the island’s waterfall once you make contact. Alternatively, you could also build a flying machine with Zonai devices if you’re feeling particularly creative, or hop on one of the falling sky stones and use the Recall ability.
Where is the Droplet?
The droplet is only visible when facing southwest from the center of Floating Scales Island. Here’s how to find it and uncover the way forward to the watery bridge:
- Check your map and plant yourself near the bottom ‘fin’ of the island and face southwest.
- The floating sky debris will line up and form the shape of a water droplet when you position the camera correctly.
- Equip your bow and then hit up on the d-pad to fuse a King’s Scale to your arrow.
- Shoot it through the droplet to reveal the location of the watery bridge.
Where is the Watery Bridge?
In Tears of the Kingdom, the watery bridge is revealed to be in the East Reservoir Lake, south of Mipha’s Court. Shooting through the droplet will complete the Clues to the Sky questline and require you to speak to Sidon and contend with a Sludge Like mini-boss before leaving to investigate the lake together.
How to Access the Watery Bridge
Once you’ve traveled to the lake and met up with Sidon, he’ll offer you a path below to the Ancient Zora Waterworks, where you’ll need to unblock some pipes to raise the water level and activate a Zonai gate. Once you’ve touched the gate, a waterfall will descend from the sky above, granting you access to Wellspring Island and acting as your ‘watery bridge’ to the Zora dungeon.
