Triforce Charts

Index of Tips and Tricks  •  Complete Walkthrough

After meeting the Hyrule King, you'll find a mail in the next mailbox: The IN-credible Chart, which shows the location of the eight Triforce Charts on the Sea Chart.

The first step is about finding a Triforce Chart at the places indicated on the IN-credible Chart. Then, you have to visit Tingle in his tower (C3) so he will decipher these charts for just 398 rupees per chart(!). By doing so, the Triforce Shards will be shown on the IN-credible Chart as well.

The second step is of course to find these Triforce Shards deep in the Great Sea, just as you do with the Treasure Charts. Once a Triforce Chart or Shard has been collected, a black cross will appear on the icon for that object.

Here is a summary of the locations of these charts. For more details, please check out the walkthrough.
