The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s Skyview Tower at Thyphlo Ruins might not be as intricate as its fellows, yet it may present a conundrum if you’re unsure of the starting point or what you need to seek. If you prefer a video tutorial over an article, we’ve got you covered. You can easily find a video version of this tutorial at the footer of this page.
Discovering the locations of all the Skyview Towers is just the beginning of the journey to unveil the full map of Hyrule. Previously we covered how to find the Popla Foothills Skyview Tower so go check that out if you haven’t already.
Below is a detailed guide to unlock the Skyview Tower at Thyphlo Ruins in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Locating THE Skyview TOWER AT THYPHLO RUINS
The Skyview Tower at Thyphlo Ruins is tucked to the north of the vast Hyrule Forest, at coordinates (0343, 3133, 0180), and lying west of the Eldin Mountains.
Reaching this tower could necessitate you to find a viewing point around the marshy waters, as plunging into it will lead to drowning within moments.
Once you’re back on terra firma, make your way to the tower, where you’ll encounter Billson, an NPC struggling to mend the tower. The issue lies with the device, yet the tower appears intact, leaving Billson mystified about the possible reason.
Around the tower, you’ll spot several large blocks akin to the ones on the Great Sky Island from the game’s onset. You can manoeuvre these blocks using Ultrahand, and they’ll hang suspended in the air. I shifted the lowest block, which concealed a Construct equipped with rockets, so tread carefully. However, these rockets come in handy and are precisely what we need.
I attached a rocket on each side of the block, and then ignited one to catapult myself into the sky.
The rockets disintegrated swiftly, but the goal here is to propel yourself high enough to glide to the tower’s pinnacle. Once there, employ Ultrahand again to shift the block obstructing the tower’s hatch. This was the core dilemma that plagued us throughout. Stand adjacent to it, and push the block aside until you hear the sound of success.
After everything is in order, return to Billson to share the uplifting news, and activate the device. And there you have it – the resolution to the Skyview Tower at Thyphlo Ruins!
