The Great Fairies have gone into hiding in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and will only come out when certain instruments like a drum or violin are played. So, here’s how you can solve this puzzle and upgrade your armor.

Great Fairy Fountains can be found across Hyrule in Tears of the Kingdom, but you’ll need to first complete a specific musical request before they will upgrade your armor. This is obviously incredibly important as the added upgrades can drastically increase your survivability and even add special bonuses – an area that is beneficial when taking down the game’s toughest foes.

The musicians will explain how something has gone wrong and mention the Lucky Clover Gazette during their conversation. You’ll want to head over to Lucky Clover Gazette, which is located east of Rito Village in the Hebra region. 

The old stables have been converted into an office, which is where you’ll find Traysi, the Lucky Clover Gazette’s editor. She’ll task you with tracking down reports from those who have spotted Zelda near the stables dotted around the game. Once you’ve initiated the side quest, travel back to the Woodland Stable and talk to the musicians
