The Upland Zorana Skyview Tower is covered in sludge and it your job to clear it to create a fast travel point. The tower holds a bit more significance compared to others because it gives you access to a shrine on the sky islands. So in this guide, let’s quickly break down how to clear the sludge at the front door of Upland Zorana Skyview Tower.
How to Clear Sludge on Upland Zorana Skyview Tower in Zelda TotK
To clear the sludge all you need to do is put water on it. There are two ways to do this; the first method is to get your hands on some blue jelly by killing those annoying jelly creatures that pop up from the ground. Killing a blue one will yield blue jelly. You can then Fuse the blue jelly with an arrow and shoot at the sludge to clear a path into the Upland Zorana Skyview Tower.
The second method is to use a Zonai Fire Hydrant just like the one we used in the Fire Temple. This method works if you have already cleared the Fire Temple after killing the Marbled Goham and also managed to grab a portable Fire Hydrant from the temple.
I personally recommend Fusing blue jelly with an arrow even if you have a Fire Hydrant. It is faster and you can defiantly save the Fire Hydrant for other places.
Additionally, Upland Zorana Skyview Tower also has a short side quest next to it called Mired in Muck. You don’t need to play to access the Upland Zorana Skyview Tower. Speak with the knight who is trapped in the sludge at the stairs of the Upland Zorana Skyview Tower. You can do this before or after clearing the sludge to unlock Upland Zorana Skyview Tower.
The man needs your help to get out of the sludge so all you have to do is shoot a blue jelly Fused arrow at him. Here’s a full video walkthrough of the side quest and you can watch me clear the sludge from Upland Zorana Skyview Tower in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.
