- — In-game description
Flint is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It can be found by Link under rocks, by breaking Ore Deposits or hitting and defeating Talus and Stone Pebblits. One spawns near a burnt out campfire in a cave in the Great Plateau while another spawns at Serenne Stable in the Hyrule Field region.
Link can use it once to start a Campfire or light a Cooking Pot by striking it with a metal weapon while next to wood. It is also required by Great Fairies to upgrade Link's armor, specifically head accessories such as the Amber Earrings, Diamond Circlet, Opal Earrings, Ruby Circlet, Sapphire Circlet and Topaz Earrings.
During the side quest "Tools of the Trade", Isha asks Link to bring her 10 Flint for jewelry creation and Starlight Memories reopening. In the "The Spark of Romance", the honeymooner Jogo needs Flint to create a campfire to roast up some Baked Apples to keep his new wife Juney happy. He pays a Silver Rupee for a single piece of Flint. After quest is compete, Jogo will buy Flint from Link though he pays him based on the amount of Flint.
