Yunobo of Goron City Quest - Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

A complete walkthrough for Yunobo of Goron City including acquiring fire-resistant armor, Moragia, and the Depths in Tears of the Kingdom.


Yunobo of Goron City is another Main Quest in the Regional Phenomena questline in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Link will need to head northeast toward Death Mountain to help Yunobo and the rest of the Goron’s sort out what’s happening in the mountain.

Yunobo of Goron City is the Eldin region part of the Regional Phenomena Main Quest. It’s a bit of a trek to get there, but the good news is that you can find a Skyview Towers nearby including the Eldin Canyon Skyview Tower and Thyphlo Ruins.

Head into the mountains toward the Regional Phenomena quest marker at coordinates 1642, 2440, 0381. Inside the city you’ll find an elderly Goron called Bludo and two youngsters, Offrak and Slergo. Speak with them to start the quest, Yunobo of Goron City.

After the cutscene, follow the quest marker up to YunoboCo HQ (a short walk north of Goron City) where you’ll need to find Yunobo in a cave. However, Offrak and Slergo will advise Link he needs fire-resistant gear to go beneath the earth. If you don’t have the gear, you can buy fire-resistant armor (called Flamebreaker Armor) at the nearby shop for 700 rupees.

Once you’ve got fire-resistant armor, head back to the young Gorons and enter the cave. Yunobo will be oddly aggressive toward Link. Dodge his rolling attack and then smack him in the head. Do this three times to shatter the mask and helping him feel more like his old self.

Link can now use Yunobo’s ability while exploring Goron City and Death Mountain. Use the ability to smash through the red rocks to continue the quest. When you’re outside, Yunobo will request Link’s aid in searching for Princess Zelda in Death Mountain.

Climbing Death Mountain

All you need to do now is work your way to the top of Death Mountain. Start by following the main path out of Goron City and trek along it as it heads east toward the mountain. Be cautious as there are plenty of enemies along the way.

Getting close to the mountain will reveal a track that wraps up the volcano. Go to the west side of the mountain to find the starting point of the track along with a few mine carts and fans. Strap a fan to a cart and place it on the track to make the ascension much easier.

While using any vehicle, Yunobo will sit in front, rolling continuously, allowing Link to fire him off to smash obstacles and enemies. He’s got a quick cooldown, so use Yunobo’s ability as much as you like.

Part of the way up Death Mountain will be a platform to recharge your batteries. You can grab the spike from the crate and attach it to the front of the cart for more damage. When you reach the top of the track, drop down off the ledge to find the Sitsum Shrine. This is useful if you need to leave and want to come back quickly.

When you’re ready, walk up the wooden ramp and speak with Yunobo. After the cutscene, grab the Zonai vehicle and start flying. Use Yunobo’s rolling ability to attack the three giant heads of Moragia. Once all three have been hit once, the fight will be over and you can continue down into the heart of Death Mountain.

Below Death Mountain – The Depths

Dive down into Death Mountain when you’re ready. Try to land as close to the marker as possible, as this is where Yunobo is waiting – right beside the Mustis Lightroot (2367, 2598, -0949). If you land far down in the lava, you’ll need to die and dive down again or glide your way over and climb the mountain.

The goal now is to move through the Depths toward the waypoint. There is a lot of lava and tall cliffs between Link and his destination. There are some lightroots you can activate along the way and a Device Dispenser, so work your way across the darkness on foot or by making a Zonai vehicle. Remember to use Yunobo’s ability to clear the red rocks.

Once you reach the structure, you'll be one stop closer to completing Yunobo of Goron City. All that's left to do is finish the Fire Temple. Check out our Fire Temple guide for a detailed walkthrough on how to complete it and defeat the boss. There are three other Regional Phenomena quests to complete or if you’ve already done them you can continue along the Main Quest!
