Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity has a great character roster featuring many of the heroes players have met in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Simply completing the main campaign will let you play as many of them, but some others require players to complete sidequests to become playable. Among them are the Great Fairies, characters that Zelda fans should know well, as they helped Link in Breath of the Wild by upgrading his gear.
In Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity, the Great Fairies are not content with just supporting the heroes, but by actively helping them on the field of battle. So, let us not waste any more time: here’s how to unlock the Great Fairies in Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity.
Unlocking the Great Fairies
To unlock the Great Fairies as playable characters, you need to reach Chapter 4 in the main story and complete the first stage, Akkala Tower. Once this is done, a new quest will become available – Offering Help on the Road. While this quest doesn’t offer great rewards, considering the 4500 rupees you have to offer to complete it, you must complete it to unlock the Fairy Fountains quests, which must be in turn completed to unlock the Great Fairies.
The Fairy Fountain missions are timed missions that take place in the Deep Snows, Grassy Plains and Desert Sands areas. They are not particularly difficult to complete, but since they are timed, you may want to be at a sufficiently high level to clear enemies quickly. At level 30, you should have no trouble completing them.
The Fairy Fountain: Deep Snows mission is actually the only one of the missions that is not timed. You will have to defeat 5 Ice Moblins before being able to fight the Great Fairy Kaysa
The Fairy Fountain: Grassy Plains mission involves completing several tasks like defeating enemies and collecting rupees. Once they are completed within the time limit, you will be able to challenge the Great Fairy Cotera.
The Fairy Fountain: Desert Sands tasks you with collecting 600 rupees within 13 minutes before being able to challenge the Great Fairy Tera. This shouldn’t be particularly difficult, as enemies drop rupees, so kill enemies as quickly as possible to complete the task and unlock the final Fairy Fountain.
The Fairy Fountain: Battlefield mission is unlocked after completing the previous three missions. To get the chance to fight the Great Fairy Mija, you will have to defeat Mobilins and collect rupees within the time limit. At a high enough level, you should be able to complete this mission within the time limit with ease.
Once the four Great Fairies have been defeated, they will become playable as the Great Fairies character.
