Learn everything about the Zelda Breath of the Wild Hightail Lizard locations and farming strategies in this article. You will never get out of stock ever again!

Where To Farm Hightail Lizards

The Legend of Zelda: BOTW is full of life, be it insects, large beasts, deadly demons, or common reptiles. While all non-demonic creatures in the game are peaceful and won’t attack unless provoked, you are bound to hunt them to acquire useful resources. In this regard, you may have come across the Zelda Breath of the Wild Hightail Lizard while wandering through the grassy terrains.

However, they are quite cunning creatures and are quick to hide when they detect your presence. As a result, these fast reptiles are nowhere to be found, just when you start looking for them. Don’t worry, in this article, we will cover all about these Zelda Hightail Lizards; where to find them, and which recipes require them. Let’s get started:

What are Zelda Hightail Lizards?

The Hightail Lizards are rare reptiles found in all three Zelda games and you can find them throughout the Hyrule map. You might be wondering, if they are ‘rare,’ then why are they scattered all over the lands? Well, it is because these small, cunning creatures are so fast that they will quickly go into hiding as soon as they feel your presence around them.

As a result, the Zelda BOTW Hightail Lizards are quite abundant in the game but are rarely caught by the players, hence the term ‘rare’ species. You can use the Hightail Lizards in portion recipes to get speed buffs and gear upgrade blueprints. Moreover, you can also trade them for Brown Dyes at the Kochi Dye Shop.

BOTW Hightail Lizard Locations and Farming:

You can find various Zelda BOTW Hightail Lizard farming guides online, but none of them mentions a working strategy that’s about to change today. While you can find the beasts all over the world map, their population is quite high in the temperate zones and rocky hilltops. So, you should only try hunting them in one of the following three zones:

  • West Necluda
  • East Necluda
  • Great Plateau

Okay, so now time for our ultimate Zelda Breath of the Wild Hightail Lizard farming guide. The key to catching one of these beasts is to keep quiet and be fast to act. The best place to find them is either the Rucco Maag Shrine or the Tah’loh Naeg Shrine. First, clear out the grassy land to expose any lizards hiding inside. You can use any Soldier’s broadsword or any other sharp sword and Link’s rotating strike combo to clear the terrain. 

Once the terrain is cleared, look for any nearby lizards and press the crouch button to enter the Sneak mode. Also, try wearing something light like the Sheikah Armor to avoid making unnecessary movement noise. Finally, press A on your controller when you are close enough to grab the Hightail Lizard and store it in your inventory. 

BOTW Where to Buy Hightail Lizards?

If you are running short of Hightail Lizards and don’t have the time to go farming, you can also purchase it for 10 rupees from the Beedle. Don’t worry, we won’t judge if you decide to take the easy way, as these reptiles are insanely fast and pretty hard to capture when they detect you. 

You can find the Beedle near the South Akkala Stable and around the Lakeside Stable areas. Simply look for the merchant, talk to him to see his inventory, and purchase all the Hightail Lizards you need for your recipes. Similarly, you can also sell these Lizards for 2 rupees if you capture a large stash by using our farming guide, but we recommend using them in other recipes.

The Best Hightail Lizard Recipes in Zelda:

Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Hightail Lizards and BOTW have almost the same recipes and armor upgrades. Here are the best recipes to use your Lizards instead of selling them for such a low price:

  • Hasty Elixir: Cook your Hightail Lizards with monster parts to brew the Hasty Elixir potion, which increases Link’s movement speed for some time.
  • Dubious Food: Alternatively, you can also add other ingredients like Rushroom and Swift Carrot to your Hasty Elixir potion to get a Healing Potion along with the speed buff.
  • Armor Upgrades: You can use 5x Hightail Lizards at any Great Fairy Fountain to upgrade the following armor pieces:
    • Climber’s Bandanna
    • Climbing Gear:
    • Climbing Boots

Conclusion:

That’s it, you have just learned all about Zelda Breath of the Wild Hightail Lizard locations and farming guide. Hopefully, if you remain consistent, you won’t ever run out of Lizards for your recipes. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or suggestions for our site. Happy Hunting!
