Eldin,(BotW | TotK | HWAoC)[1][2][3] also known as the Eldin Region,(BotW)[4] is a recurring Region in The Legend of Zelda series.

Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

Eldin is a vast Region in northeastern Hyrule. The Region is split into two distinct halves. The eastern side is a largely mountainous stretch of land that consists densely of foothills, deep gorges, and volcanic activity.[5] It consists of two areas: Eldin Canyon and Death Mountain. The Eldin Mountains run north of Eldin Canyon and west into northern Central Hyrule. The Eldin Canyon is the largest of all these areas, covering almost the entirety of southern and eastern Eldin.

The Eldin Region initially starts off as a partially wooded and even road furthest to the south. Further to the northeast and closer to Death Mountain, the land grows increasingly perilous with harder terrain and volcanic activity, particularly beginning in the Mountain Road. As Link nears this area, the Temperature grows exceedingly hot and causes Link and any wooden Gear equipped to catch on fire. Link can withstand the high Temperatures by consuming Food or Elixirs that grant Flame Guard, or by wearing any of the Flamebreaker Set, allowing him to safely travel through the hotter climate. Some areas such as Death Mountain and the Abandoned North Mine, are even hotter and require Link to either wear at least two Flamebreaker pieces, or to wear one and consume a Flame Guard Food. The northernmost area of Eldin is a barren, dead wasteland that sits along the ends of Hyrule. This area extends to the northwest through the Eldin Mountains.

Due to its hotter climate, eastern Eldin hosts a number of Hot Springs that will gradually recover Link's health as he swims through them. Certain items will begin to burn as they are placed on the ground in the Region's volcanic areas as well. Through this, it is possible to grill certain Food.[6] As very few people can naturally withstand the intense heat without the aid of Food or Armor, eastern Eldin is home almost exclusively to the Goron Tribe, who live in Goron City in east-central Eldin. Creatures well adapted to the climate, such as Fireproof Lizards, Hotfeather Pigeons, and Eldin Ostriches, also inhabit the Region throughout.

Eldin is also a major resource of Gems which are found inside Ore Deposits,[7] and also has a high abundance of Luminous Stone Deposits.

During present events, eastern Eldin is plagued by the Divine Beast Vah Rudania. As Link enters the Region to quell Vah Rudania from Calamity Ganon's influence, he eventually meets the Gorons Bludo and Yunobo as part of the "Divine Beast Vah Rudania" Main Quest. Link and Yunobo band together to scale Death Mountain to weaken the Divine Beast, allowing Link to board it and regain control of Vah Rudania after defeating Fireblight Ganon.
