Breath of The Wild - How to Farm Star Fragments

Star fragments are one of the most useful ores in The Legend of Zelda’s Breath of The Wild. These valuable ores can be used to upgrade and craft different armor including the Radiant Armor set. Also, you can use these stars to craft various elixirs that can give the player powerful boosts or effects.

While these stars can be obtained by looking inside chests or even dropped by some enemies, the easiest way to get these ores is to wait for them to fall from the sky at night. Today we are here to offer you a mini guide on how to farm these Star Fragments.


Before heading to our camp location we need to gather some materials to help us with our mission. Our first destination is the Rito Stable, you can get to this stable by warping in the shrine near Rito village and glide your way toward it.

Just beside the stable, there is a field with cut trees where you will find a Woodcutter Axe. Use the axe to chop some wood from the big forest near the stable. Gather as much as you can or as much as you need depending on how many nights you will spend.  The second thing is a fire source to light the camp, you can use fire arrows just like I did, or even some flints.

Time to Hunt Some Stars!

Alright now that we are ready, we’re gonna warp toward Great Plateau Tower. Once there drop some Wood and light up a camp sit and wait until noon.

One more time we are gonna sit on the camp until night. When the night comes out just face toward the Hyrule Castle direction and wait for the magic to happen. Don’t rush things it might take some time, it took me two nights to spot a Star fragment, but once it’s there you can clearly see it marked by a golden beacon of light.

Use your scope to mark the location and glide your way to your reward, and voila! done. You can repeat this process as much as you want, but just keep in mind that you will need to deal with some monsters on the way since the hunt is always at night.
