Overview

There are four Great Fairy Fountains hidden in Hyrule. Their locations are listed below. The Great Fairies can upgrade your armor to increase their defensive power. Some armor sets also give set bonuses after you have upgraded all three parts of the set at least once.

To open each Great Fairy Fountain, you will need rupees. To open the first fountain, it costs 100 rupees. To open the next, it costs 500 rupees. The next costs 1000 rupees, and the final one costs 10000 rupees, for a total of 11600 rupees to open all four.

Each time you open another Great Fairy Fountain, all of the Great Fairies become able to upgrade your armor by another level. For example, when you have opened two Great Fairy Fountains, you can go to any of the two Great Fairies to upgrade your armor to level 2, and when you have opened all four Great Fairy Fountains, you can go to any of the fairies to upgrade your armor to the maximum level.
