Where to Get the Ember Headdress in Tears of the Kingdom
To get the Ember Headdress in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you will need to go to YunoboCo HQ South Cave in the Eldin Canyon. You can find the cave north of Goron City and southeast of Darunia Lake, close to the point where two rails cross.
However, before you head inside, you should know that the cave features a lava lake and that you’ll need some protection from the heat. Consume a Fireproof Elixir for some Flame Guard. If you don’t have one on you, you can make it in your Portable Pot by using 3x Fireproof Lizard and 2x Bokoblin Fang.
Once you consume the elixir, head inside and dispose of some enemies in there. The Ember Headdress is waiting for you in a chest across the lava lake. To cross the lake, you will need to destroy the barrier right across the way from the entrance to the cave—you can use your Boulder Hammer.
To fix the vehicle, you will need to attach two wheels that have fallen off to the main platform. One is right next to the vehicle, but the other is stuck in the ceiling to the right of the entrance. Once you fix everything, carry the wheeled raft out and place it on the lava. Drive yourself straight across the lake and grab the headdress from the chest.
You can stick around for a bit in this cave and gather some useful resources or head out with your new piece of headgear. We hope you put it to good use! For more help with this long-awaited game, check out our other guides in the dedicated Tears of the Kingdom section here on TouchTapPlay.
