Candence of Hyrule Deku Seeds - How to Trade Deku Seeds With Tingle

Here's our guide on finding Deku Seeds in Cadence of Hyrule, as well as how you can trade them with Tingle.

You can find Deku Seeds within Cadence of Hyrule, and while they're not easy to uncover, they're well worth finding. In this guide to the Cadence of Hyrule Deku Seeds, we'll be walking you through how to identify and find the items, as well as how you can put them to use by finding a certain character.

Cadence of Hyrule Deku Seeds

In Cadence of Hyrule, one of the rarer items you're going to come across are Deku Seeds. You can only obtain Deku Seeds by slaying a certain type of enemy, called Deku Scrubs.

Trouble is, Deku Scrubs are hard to identify because they hide underneath the ground. You can find them in randomized places around the map in Cadence of Hyrule, and when they pop up, they look like small wooden creatures with a patch of grass on top of their heads.

When a Deku Scrub does pop up to shoot a rock at you, you've got a limited amount of time to reach the scrub and slay it, before it disappears back underground. But don't worry, because when you retreat two spaces away from the Deku Scrub, it'll re-emerge from the ground to pelt you with a rock once again. Plan and anticipate the emergence of a Deku Scrub, to catch it out and slay it while it's above ground.

But what can you do with Deku Seeds in Cadence of Hyrule once you've obtained them? You need to track down Tingle, who can be located in the Lost Woods area of the map. Getting to Tingle is no easy feat, however, because as the name of the woods suggests, it's really easy to get lost in them.

Well, we say "lost." It's more like the game has you going in a loop, repeating the same space on the map no matter how many times you exit to either the north, south, east, or west. We broke the loop by going north repeatedly about 6 times, and then doubling back to go south, where we broke the pattern and arrived at the screen you can see below.

When you reach here, you need to go inside the hollow tree with an 'X' marked above it. In here, you'll find Tingle fast asleep. To wake him up, you need to interact with the boulder puzzle, which is really simple to solve. Place a bomb by the rock statue so that it explodes, knocking the boulder onto the course.

You now need to move Link/Zelda, to guide the boulder in the sole path around the area, which will let off musical notes as it goes. These musical notes will then wake Tingle, who will reward you with the Dowser item, which you can equip and use to easily guide yourself out of the Lost Woods.

But when you've found 10 Deku Seeds, return to Tingle. He'll congratulate you on having retrieved so many, and present you with a reward. This reward will either double Zelda's magic meter, or double Link's stamina meter, both of which are absolutely crucial for the respective character.
