Hyrule as seen in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is an enormous place. Often, you can quickly warp around it by using activated shrines and towers to fast travel. However, there sometimes are remote locations you have reason to visit regularly. That’s when a particular upgrade comes in handy. Here is our guide explaining how to get and use the Travel Medallion in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Tears of the Kingdom – how to get and use the Travel Medallion
Tea Travel Medallion is a handy item you can use to warp directly to the location of your choosing, even if you haven’t found a nearby shrine or skytower to activate. Normally, you might have to hike a long distance, which can be tedious or dangerous. If you have the medallion, however, you can save yourself that hassle. To get the Travel Medallion, complete a task for Robbie at the Hateno Research Lab.
To use the Travel Medallion, access it from the Key Items menu and place one at your current location. You can then warp to that point whenever you like.
When you first meet Robbiehe shares a room with Josha in Lookout Landing. The two researchers present quests early in the game, as you discover how to get the Autobuild ability. After you complete that objective and deal with Robbie a bit more, he takes off to his research center.
Find Robbie at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab on the hill outside Hateno Villagewhich is north of the Necluda Sea in the southeast (check our guide telling where to find Hateno Village if you need further assistance).
When you talk to Robbie at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab, ask him about the Travel Medallion. He sends you to clear out the Ancient Tech Lab in the Deep Akkala region (it’s located a short distance south of the world map’s northeastern corner). Once you defeat the Yiga Clan members that have taken over the lab, open the treasure chest they guarded to find the Travel Medallion Prototype. Take it back to Robbie, who gets it working for you.
By default, you can use the Travel Medallion to set one convenient fast travel point. As you activate skytowers and review more of the world map, Robbie upgrades the Travel Medallion. This grants you as many as three uses. By the time I met him, I had already activated every skytower, so I didn’t have to wait.
I suggest placing a Travel Medallion north of Death Mountainnear where you can find four Rock Octoroks. They offer you a way to repair weapons and shields. Once you venture into the Depths to meet Ganondorf, you might also set a medallion near the point of no return, so you can conveniently return once you have supplies. A third use might be to set one somewhere near a remote location where you like to farm rare items. If you ever decide you don’t like where one is placed, visit its location and retrieve it to use it elsewhere. Travel Medallions can prove quite handy.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available on the Nintendo Switch.
