How to Get Rupees in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Knowing how to get more Rupees is essential!

If you’ve played any game in the Zelda franchise, you’ll be familiar with Rupees, the in-game currency. They are vital if you want to keep yourself from being penniless in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. In this guide, we’ll highlight some ways you can get more Rupees to help keep you on track.

Cooking Is The Way

Sure you can sell the food items you foraged in the forest, but why not make it even more special by cooking it? You can sell any meal you cook in Tears of the Kingdom, including the ever-famous Dubious Meal. For the finest gourmet meals, there’s no better place to scavenge than the Tabantha Tundra. Hunt all the moose, wolves, and foxes, and take their meat to cook whatever your heart desires.

You can either follow a recipe or randomly throw ingredients into a pot—it’s your choice. If you use cooking ingredients and your prized meat, you’ll earn a neat profit from it once you sell the meals to a merchant.

Help Addison

In your travels, you’ll come across Addison multiple times. He’ll be holding up a sign for President Hudson. He’ll say that he’s holding the sign up as a way to “support” Hudson, but you can talk to him to tell him to let go of it.

These encounters with Addison are mini-games where you have to work out how to hold up the sign without letting it fall after Addison lets go of it. You can fix the sign by using the environment around you, such as using boulders, logs, or even creations made using the materials together.

Once the sign has something stable to lean on, tell Addison to let go. Addison picks the sign back up if it falls, but if it stays up, you’ll be rewarded with at least 20 Rupees and some food for your hard work!

Be A Hero

The general rule in the game is always to help those in need. Link is a good guy at heart, so it makes sense for him to be able to help out NPCs who are in trouble. Yet, these NPCs often give you Rupees for your trouble. The rates of Rupees you receive vary depending on the activity.

Farm Ores

If you’re guilty of hoarding ores in your inventory, you can sell these for Rupees. Selling Topaz and Opal, which you can find in wells and caves, will get you 80 and 30 Rupees a piece, respectively. Meanwhile, Rubies and Sapphires, which are harder to find, can be sold to merchants for 110 and 150 Rupees, respectively.

Diamonds are the cream of the crop when it comes to ores. Selling for 500 Rupees, they can get you multiple arrows for your bow and more. However, it’s not recommended to sell them as they add 25 Fuse attack power to your weapon and help upgrade armor sets. Therefore, it would be wise to prioritize selling Topaz and Opals if you need quick cash.

Chase Blupees

Blupees are rare, blue rabbits that show up around Hyrule, although they typically pop up when you’re hunting Bubbulfrogs. If you find one, shoot them multiple times, and they will drop more currency. But be careful; Blupees are incredibly skittish, and they’ll run the moment they see you or take damage from the arrows. The best method of catching them off guard is to crouch and creep up behind them from a distance.

While there are no specific locations where Blupees like to roam about, they generally show themselves in vast, grassy plains or outside of caves.
