You’ll need to venture around the Great Plateau for this one, both on and under, in order to complete “A Call From The Depths,” so here’s our guide on how to do it.

Updated on October 3, 2023: With the Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue kind of tricky to find until you know where he is, we wanted to come back and update our guide on the A Call From The Depths quest to provide a bit more information.

This guide contains spoilers for a section of Tears of the Kingdom.


How To Start “A Call From The Depths”

The nostalgic among us may have begun this quest without meaning to in their quest to venture to iconic locations from Breath of the Wild. If you head toward the Temple of Time Ruins on the Great Plateau, you’ll stumble into A Call From The Depths.

When you first arrive, you’ll see a large blockage in the wall of the Great Plateau, which you can break with either hammers or Bomb Flowers. When you do, water begins to flow from it again.

Head into the opening you created in the wall, and speak to the Statue just past the opening. It directs you a bit further ahead, up into the proper Ruins in the Temple of Time.

Here, you find the large Goddess Statue that began your journey in the prequel, who now tells you they’ve lost their eyes in the area around the Great Plateau, and now cannot use them in The Depths.

You’ll be tasked then with finding all four eyes and throwing them into the nearby chasms to get them into The Depths. Then, once they’re down there, you’ll need to bring each eye to the Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue.

The Statue itself can be a little tricky to find, in a complex this large and winding! To find the Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue in TOTK, start from the Construct that gave you the Schema Stone not far from the Forge.

Look toward the main structure of the Great Abandoned Central Mine, and you’ll see a stairway leading down further under the building. This leads you to the Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue’s oversized cave dwelling.

There aren’t too many Shrines to unlock in this area, so you’ll be doing a good amount of walking and Paragliding to access the eyes.

This quest is made easier if you’ve got Tulin’s ability to help you glide between Towers and chasms, so consider finishing Tulin of Rito Village first if you need an extra midair boost in your travels between eyes.

How To Bring Each Eye To The Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue

Once you’ve thrown each eye down the nearest chasm to get it into the Depths, it’s time to begin bringing them over to the Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue. Unfortunately, the chasms only go straight downward, so you’ve got a bit of a journey ahead.

You’ll almost always find assorted Zonai tech lying around where the eyes fell, so make great use of it in your transport mission.

How Best To Move Each Eye To The Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue

Chasm

Best Method

Great Plateau North Chasm

Use the nearby sheets, Big Wheels, and Steering Sticks to craft a large vehicle, then drive the eye over to the Great Abandoned Central Mine

Great Plateau East Chasm

Affix the eye to one of the nearby Carts, then ride the rails back to the Great Abandoned Central Mine

Great Plateau South Chasm

Use the Wings, Fans, and Batteries at the top of this structure to make a plane, then use the guide rail on the platform to take off and steer toward the Great Abandoned Central Mine

Great Plateau West Chasm

You’ll have two rails to navigate for this one, requiring a Cart change midway through in Hylia Canyon Mine, and the second track leads you directly into the large room where the Bargainer Statue is

If you arrive below the chasm to find that the eye is not present, go back to the surface and check where you originally found the eye, as it may be back there again.

Finishing The Quest

When you’ve brought the final eye to the Great Abandoned Central Mine Bargainer Statue, it offers you the choice between a free Heart Container or Stamina Vessel, to be given to you immediately.

Speak to the Statue again before you leave, though, in order to fully and formally unlock it as a Bargainer Statue.

You’re able to buy new clothes from the Statues the more Statues you speak to, so be sure to chat with all of them as you find them!
