Key Takeaway

From Woodland Stable, take the road leading northeast until you get to Goron City.

You’ll want to find Goron City relatively soon in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, as this is where one of the four disastrous phenomena can be found. Thankfully, the home of the rock-like Gorons is found on a major road leading north from a convenient landmark.

    Directions From Woodland Stable to Goron City

    The easiest way to find Goron City is to start from Woodland Stable. If you haven’t yet found Woodland Stable in the Eldin region, check out our guide for how to get there.

    Before we give you the directions, it’s worth mentioning that Woodland Stable is the only stable in the Eldin region. This means it is the only place you can summon a horse in the area.

    Now, without further ado, on to the direction! From Woodland Stable, take the path leading northeast. It has a few twists and turns; however, as long as you keep heading northward, you’ll eventually get there. That’s it—that’s all you need to do to find Goron City!

    Plan on exploring some of the many mountain caves in the Eldin region? Well, we recommend wearing fire-resistant armor or consuming meals and elixirs that grant the Flame Guard effect. Not doing so means you’ll take damage from the super-heated air within these scorching caverns! If you haven’t already, now would be a great time to learn how to cook.

    Important Features of Goron City

    There are four main points of interest in Goron City (in addition to the center of the city where the phenomenon quest marker can be found). These points of interest are the General Store, Armor Store, Inn, and shrine just north of Goron City.

    Goron City General Store

    Within Goron City’s General Store, you’ll find five items for sale. Here’s a breakdown of what it has in stock as well as the prices for everything:

    • Cane Sugar (3 in stock) – costs 12 Rupees each
    • Rock Salt (3 in stock) – costs 12 Rupees each
    • Goron Spice (3 in stock) – costs 16 Rupees each
    • Fire Fruit (5 in stock) – costs 12 Rupees each
    • Bundles of Five Arrows (4 in stock) – costs 20 Rupees each

    We recommend at least picking up some Goron Spice, as this ingredient is pretty hard to find anywhere else. While it’s not that useful for regular cooking, it can come in handy while doing some side adventures.

    Goron City Inn

    This inn is nothing special; however, like all inns, it’s a great place to restore Hearts. On top of that, if you get a Goron Massage (which sounds sketchier than it really is), Link wakes up with three temporary maximum Hearts and one temporary maximum Stamina wheel.

    Goron City Armor Store

    Arguably the most important store in Goron City, the Armor Store sells equipment that has the Flame Guard effect. Most areas around Goron City don’t pose any environmental threats, although the caves in the Eldin region do. You need at least one tier of Flame Guard to avoid taking damage in these high-heat caverns.

    What’s more, there are other areas in Tears of the Kingdom that are too hot to handle without the Flame Guard effect. Picking up some fire-resistant armor now definitely comes in handy later.

    Here are the pieces of armor sold in-store:

    • Flamebreaker Boots (gives one tier of Flame Guard) – costs 1,200 Rupees
    • Flamebreaker Helm (gives one tier of Flame Guard) – costs 1,400 Rupees
    • Flamebreaker Armor (gives one tier of Flame Guard) – costs 700 Rupees

    Marakuguc Shrine

    On the road leading north out of Goron City, keep your eyes peeled for a shrine on the eastern cliffs. This is Marakuguc Shrine: a great place to get another Light of Blessing. Also, this shrine acts as a convenient fast travel point for returning to Goron City.

    Once you’ve explored all these areas, there’s not much left to do in Goron City besides buying and selling gems—and doing main quest stuff. With that said, the surrounding area has some interesting spots you should check out, such as the hot springs and more! If you ever get tired of climbing up and down short cliff faces, try bomb-jumping. Remember: the fastest way to your destination is always a straight line.
