Tears of the Kingdom introduces a lot of new elements and brings back the familiar ones as well from Breath of the Wild. Just like in the previous game, Link will have to become stronger by collecting Heart Containers to get more HP. That is why this guide will show you how to get more hearts in Tears of the Kingdom.
The further you progress in the game, the tougher enemies you’ll face. To ensure that they don’t kill you instantly, you have to get as many hearts as you can. If you do not want to see the game over screen again and again, you have to increase your HP. With that said, let’s dive right in and get started.
How to Get Heart Containers in Tears of the Kingdom
Just like in Breath of the Wild, you need to pray to a Goddess Statue to get more hearts. These statues can be found across the map in different regions. So, make sure that you keep an eye out for them and mark them on the map as well.
To get more hearts, you need to collect the Light of Blessing by completing Shrines. You can find them all across the map in different areas. Each Shrine offers a unique puzzle that you have to solve by using your skills and reaching the end. Once you reach the end, you will get the Light of Blessing as a reward.
Collecting four Lights of Blessings will allow you to ask the Goddess Statue for a Heart Container that will increase your overall HP. When you finish the starting area, you will automatically be tasked to pray to a Goddess Statue so that you can gain more HP.
So, once you have completed four Shrines, head over to the statue and interact with it.
After a short cutscene, Link will gain a Heart Container that will increase his overall HP by one heart. While this might not sound like a big deal, this makes a lot of difference in the game. You will be able to tank more hits and fight stronger enemies as well.
So, make sure that you collect as many Light of Blessings as you can and complete all the Shrines. This will make you extremely tanky and allow you to roam around without any worries.
That’s everything you need to know about how to get more hearts in Tears of the Kingdom. Try to get as many hearts as you can so that you do not die within a few hits from the enemy. Having more hearts will allow you to perform better in combat as well since you won’t have to worry about your HP all the time.
