While the Hyrule economy may be in pieces, money is still an important resource in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and you will need it to spend at vendors across the game. While you'll end up picking up plenty of Rupees as you complete quests and open chests, the best way of securing a lot quickly involves selling valuable items like ores. 

How do you farm Rupees?

The best way to farm Rupees is to sell highly sought-after items. The best items you can sell are ores and gems you can find scattered across Hyrule. While other items may have a higher price point, these are the most reliable and accessible.

The minerals and gemstones that sell for the most are:

  • Diamond
  • Flint
  • Luminous Stone
  • Opal
  • Rock Salt
  • Ruby
  • Sapphire
  • Topaz

These materials can be found in various chests, mined from sparkling rocks located in caves or the Depths, or, if you’re feeling brave, a large assortment is dropped from Stone Talus boss encounters too.

Picking up these is key to farming Rupees in Tears of the Kingdom, so always be on the lookout for more ores to mine. 

Where can you sell items for Rupees?

These items can be sold to any number of merchants across Hyrule. While most will often be found in major settlements, others are simply traveling the roads, often on horse and carriage.

However, the most reliable and recognizable merchant to sell to is Beedle. With his giant beetle-shaped backpack, you can’t miss him trudging across the world.

Mostly, he’ll be loitering around the stables across Hyrule, where he will encourage you to sell him your goods (as well as browse his own wares, too).
