How to Start Gloom-Borne Disease in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
To start the Gloom-Borne Illness side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you must first speak to Lasli in Kakariko Village.
She can be found sitting by a fire on the east side of Kakariko Village, the coordinates being roughly 1908, -1003, 0127. She’ll even be there during the night, so Lasli isn’t hard to find.
Lasli will explain that her grandmother fell ill from the darkness infesting Hyrule while helping the investigation team. In an attempt to cure her, Lasli tries to cook a porridge that will cure Gloom’s disease.
His recipe includes Hylian rice, fresh milk, and wild greens, but it doesn’t seem to work. Indeed, instead of old wild greens, you need to find a specific flower – a sundelion.
Sundelions locations in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Sundelions are the mysterious, sadness-healing ingredient you need for the Gloom-Borne Illness side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Sundelions can be found on the Sky Islands floating above Hyrule, but that doesn’t make them easy to find. We recommend searching through the Great Sky Island or using the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower in the Akkala Highlands to reach the Sokkala Sky Archipelago.
Once in the sky, land on the sky island containing the Flux Construct II – make sure to land on a part of the island containing a small ruin – and you will easily find a few Sundelions. The coordinates for this location are 3779, 1885, 0992.
You can also find three Sundelions around a small stone at the end of the Forgotten Temple, but, once you’ve collected all of Dragon Tear’s memories, you may feel a little guilty for choosing them. The coordinates of these sundelions in the Forgotten Temple are -0995, 2755, -0078.
Where to find Hylian rice and fresh milk in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Before you can return to Lasli to complete Gloom-Borne Illness in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you must collect the other two ingredients – Hylian Rice and Fresh Milk.
Luckily, Hylian rice and fresh milk can be easily obtained from the General Store in Hateno Village for 12 rupees each.
You can easily buy them from street vendors. Parga, for example, walks around Hyrule Field and will also sell the ingredients for 12 rupees. However, these peddlers may not have both Hylian rice and fresh milk, so we recommend visiting Hateno’s General Store if you don’t already have them.
How to complete Gloom-Borne disease and rewards in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Once you have all the ingredients, it’s time to complete the Gloom-Borne Illness side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Go back to Lasli and cook it Hylian rice, fresh milk and Sundelion in the pot in front of her. This will create a Sunny Veggie Porridge – a recipe you might want to remember, as it will not only replenish three hearts, but recover three if broken by the dark.
Talk to Lasli after preparing the meal and give him the porridge. She will give the porridge to her grandmother, Nanna, and with that, the side quest will be over!
You will receive energizing vegetable porridge, and if you visit the armor shop in Kakariko Village, you will find that the prices have been reduced.
