All Koltin Locations In Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has plenty of fascinating merchant NPCs traversing the paths across Hyrule. As they often are on the move, they do happen to sell precious items; they can also provide you with side missions to complete when Link has some spare time.

One such merchant NPC is Kotlin, a new character to be found somewhere in Hyrule, but once discovered, he can sell you valuable monster items. We’ve pulled out our Purrah Pad to help you find Kotlin and all his possible locations in Tears of the Kingdom.

Where To Find Koltin In Tears Of The Kingdom?

Hyrule’s most popular merchant NPC is back at it again as he’s on the move throughout the region, and once again, players will need to locate him if they wish to get their hands on some monstrous goodies. This NPC can be tricky to find; however, he can be found at one of the various locations, but before finding him, you’ll need to complete a few things.

Firstly, you’ll need to acquire “The Hunt for Bubbul Gems” side mission, where you’ll encounter Kotlin and Kilton. After completing it, Kotlin will realize that his plans won’t work, and therefore, he’ll move his merchant shop, where you’ll get “The Search for Koltin” side mission and, yes, track down the elusive NPC.

Once you’ve located him and his shop in Tarry Town, you’ll be able to find Kilton in Tarrey Town, from whom you can speak if you need to find Kotlin. This will be extremely helpful as Koltin will move locations occasionally and can point you in the right direction, especially if he’s in Tarry Town.

Koltin’s Possible Locations In Tears Of The Kingdom

Kotlin can be found in several locations throughout Hyrule, as he won’t stay in one place for too long. As you’ll first meet Kotlin at the Woodland Stable south of Ekochiu Shrine to start “The Hunt for Bubbul Gems” side mission, there’s the likelihood he might wound up here after some time.

So, let’s look at all the possible locations and their coordinates of where to find Koltin in Tears of the Kingdom:

  1. Woodland Stable (1280 1214 0020): This location is where you start “The Hunt for Bubbul Gems” side mission, as you can travel to him from the Ekochiu Shrine heading east near Pico Pond.
  2. Tarrey Town (3662 2064 0168): During “The Search for Koltin” side mission, Kotlin can be found atop a peak of Ulri Mountain, so travel east from the Skyview Tower and drop down.
  3. Lookout Landing (-0319 -0162 0022): Look for Kotlin north from the Jiosin Shrine near a grove of trees.
  4. Farosh Hills (0588 -2681 0112): You can locate Kotlin and his balloon south from the Popla Foothills Skyview Tower.
  5. Tabantha Tundra (-1533 2386 0245): Travel south from the Orochium Shrine, where Kotlin is found on a cliff near the Forgotten Temple.

Once you’ve located Kotlin, you can exchange Bubbul Gems obtained after dropping Bubbul Frogs found within caves. You can acquire a Moblin Mask, the Mystic Robe, Fire Keese Eyes, and Hinox nail clippings from Kotlin, which can be used for crafting and more.
