Farosh's Scales are Items in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

Scales can be collected from the dragon, Farosh, who typically flies around Lake Hylia, Lake Floria, or the Gerudo Highlands. Link needs to shoot the dragon with an arrow: he can shoot anywhere along the main body that isn't the horns, teeth, or claws (which will yield the other materials). Farosh's Scale will fall somewhere on the land in the form of a light.

Cooking with Farosh's Scales will always result in Dubious Food. At the Kochi Dye Shop, Farosh's Scales can be used as an ingredient to create Light Yellow Dye. One of Farosh's Scales is required to complete "The Spring of Courage" Shrine Quest. Link must place the scale inside the Spring of Courage past the Zonai Ruins. Doing so will open the way to the Shae Katha Shrine.

Two of Farosh's Scales, in addition to ten Acorns, are needed to upgrade the Cap of the Wild to its first tier. Another Scale can be used to upgrade the Fierce Deity Boots to their first tier.

  • Total for Cap of the Wild: 2 (2, 0, 0, 0)
  • Total for Fierce Deity Boots: 1 (1, 0, 0, 0)

    This precious scale fell from the golden spirit Farosh. It contains powerful electricity within. You can cook with it, but just eating it seems like a waste.
