The East Barrens is a location found in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

The East Barrens are located at the southeast end of the Gerudo Desert. As the barrens are in the desert, it shares the extreme weather patterns, where it gets very cold at night and is very hot during the daytime. Depending on the time of day, Link will need to wear armor or use an elixir that gives Heat Resistance or Cold Resistance. Most of the area is completely empty, with limited enemies and just some Hydromelons and Voltfruit growing.

The Barrens consist of a series of small pillars that stick out from underground. At the northwest part of the area, there is a larger stone structure that has a stump on top of it. Step on it and a yellow circle will appear in the distance to the southeast. It's a bit too far to reach, even with maximum stamina. If Link has a Sand Seal, he can use it to quickly navigate to the other archway. Alternatively, Link can just run across the sand with the Sand Boots. Alternatively, Link can use the upgraded Stealth Set at nighttime, which gives him a speed boost, allowing him to reach the circle in time. The Divine Beast Vah Naboris roams this central part of this area, enshrouding it in a sandstorm, and hurling powerful lightning bolts. After reclaiming Naboris, the area becomes clear again and safe to traverse.

At the far north of the area there are three enemy skull bases with some Blue Lizalfos in the area. The base to the east has a treasure chest buried in the sand which contains five Bomb Arrows. The base to the south has a block puzzle with the missing block piece near the ceiling.

Tears of the Kingdom

The East Barrens can be found at the southeast end of the Gerudo Desert. The area is subject to extreme temperatures where Link will need to have some Heat Resistance during the daytime and Cold Resistance in the evening in order to survive.

A giant Molduga is present in the area and will attack when Link draws near. Stand on the rocks or ruins to avoid getting gobbled up by the monster.

Siwakama Shrine

The Siwakama Shrine can be found on the plateau at the north part of the Barrens. Titled Moving the Spheres, the shrine requires Link to use Ultrhand to move Stone Balls around, using them as platforms to jump across longer gaps.

Korok Seeds

  • Just north of the Siwakama Shrine, Link will find some sparkling lights. Catch the lights to get the Korok Seed.
  • Just west of the Siwakama Shrine, there is a Korok trying to reunite with his friend. His friend can be found way down at the south end of the East Barrens. Carry the Korok over to get a pair of Korok Seeds.
