Next to Impa there is an orange orb like you find at shrines. On one of the hills above Kakariko Village, there is a pedestal with a slot for an orb. If I try to pick up the orb, Impa tells me off.

How do I pick up the orb?


You have to complete all of the other side quests in Kakariko Village first, then you will unlock a new sidequest that will let you use the orb.

You need to complete these sidequests first:

  • Flown The Coop
  • Arrows of Burning Heat
  • By Firefly's Light
  • Find the Fairy Fountain

Note that you can only use the orb in Kakariko on the pedestal. If you try to use another one, it will not work:

  • I'm unsure if the sidequests you get from children in kakariko count towards this requirement (the three cooking ones and the hide and seek one) -- if anyone knows for sure, go ahead and edit this answer – Pyritie Mar 17 '17 at 0:05

    The sidequests that matter are detailed in a book found inside Impa's house. – Yuuki Mar 17 '17 at 0:10

    Dumb question: how do I activate the firefly side quest? I can talk to the shop girl, but the quest doesn't activate. Oh, I guess you need to do the side quests in a certain order? Find the fairy fountain before by firefly's light? – JAL Mar 26 '17 at 0:14

    @JAL You start the firefly side quest by talking to the shop girl in the evenings while she's sitting in her home. – Pyritie Apr 10 '17 at 13:30
