So whether you need the flowers to upgrade your gear or to advance the story, this guide will aim to make the process much easier for you. you.
How to get ancient flowers
Like some other treasures, there is only one region in the game where you can find them. The objective this time is the region of Lanayru, the vast desert that lies under the pillar of yellow light. While you can drop down just about anywhere, the mining area and the main desert area will probably be your best bets when looking for them. Now you won't find them just by walking around, you need to use special items to find them. These items are the Timeshift Stones that dot the region.
Simply hit a Timeshift Stone and send the area around you into the past to begin your search. Ancient Flowers can spawn in any grassy regions that spawn once the weather has shifted, which is why you can search for them just about anywhere. This is why the mines you first land in are a good place to look, as there are a ton of Timeshift Stones around that you can use. If you have a treasure locket, be sure to bring it with you, as you'll likely end up with more flowers than you know what to do with after a stint or two in the desert. So once you've upgraded everything, you can sell the excess for a quick profit.
