Hateno Tower

Hateno Tower is covered in thorns, so you can't climb straight to the top. It'd be easier if you burn them with fire weapons or equipments.

An Example of How To Burn Thorns
・Place Woods and Flint near the thorns and hit with an iron weapon.
・Cut the thorns with a fire weapon (Fire Rod also works)
・Hit the thorns with Fire Arrow or Bomb Arrow

Wood can be obtained by destroying trees and flint can be obtained randomly by destroying ores. These materials can be easily obtained in the early stage, try to get them while moving.

You Can Climb The Tower Without Burning The Thorns

Accrording to Purah's instruction, carry the blue flame with a wooden weapon such as a Torch, from the edge of Hateno Village where the blue flame is ignited to the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab.

Notes On Carrying the Blue Flame

  • Falling into water extinguishes the fire.
  • Running (press B) extinguishes the fire.
  • Using Runes extinguishes the fire.
  • Wooden weapons other than Torch will be destroyed over time.

Basically, the fire will go out if you do any action other than walking. Also note that igniting the flame on a wooden weapon other than a Torch will reduce the weapon's Durability and eventually destroy it. Lighting the Blue Flame Pedestals along the way will make you easier to reignite when the flame goes out.
