Dinraal's Scales,[1] also known as Sacred Articles[2] or Sacred Relics,[3] are Items in Breath of the Wild.

Location and Uses

Dinraal's Scales can be collected from the Dragon, Dinraal, who typically flies around the Eldin Mountains or Tabantha Frontier. Link can shoot anywhere along the main body that is not the horns, teeth, or claws to receive the Scales. Dinraal's Scale will fall somewhere on the land in the form of a light.

Meals made using Dinraal's Scales will result in Dubious Food. However, if they are Cooked with a critter, the result will be an Elixir. They can also be used at the Kochi Dye Shop to make Crimson Dye. Kilton at the Fang and Bone will also accept them in exchange for Mon.

During "The Spring of Power" Shrine Quest, Link will hear a legend about offering a "sacred article" to the Spring of Power.[2] There, Hylia will task Link with retrieving one of Dinraal's Scales and placing it into the Spring.[4] When Link does so, the doorway behind the Goddess Statue will open, revealing Tutsuwa Nima Shrine.[5]

Dinraal's Scales are required to upgrade the following pieces of Armor at a Great Fairy Fountain.
