Unlock the Encyclopaedic Detector in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
When you're looking for something in Zelda Tears of the Kingdomthere's nothing better than the Encyclopaedic Detector. Thanks to these developments in Sanctuary DetectorNo monster and no material can escape you. Here's how to unlock it
Get the Encyclopaedic Detector
Before unlocking the Encyclopaedic Detector, you'll first need to unlock the Sancutaire detector. He himself asked you to unlock the Camera and complete a few quests beforehand. We invite you to follow the guide to the Sanctuary Detector.
Once this is done, return to Faras at the Pru'ha laboratory in the village of Elimith (coordinates 3779; -2121; 0251;). It will suggest several possible improvements for your Pru'ha Tablet. These include Encyclopaedic Detector.
Ask Faras to install it and he'll ask you to list 5 monsters in your encyclopaedia. To do this, it's very simple: photograph 5 different monsters using the Camera.
How to use the Encyclopaedic Detector
To use the Encyclopaedia Detector, open the Pru'ha Tablet (-), press (Y) to open the detector menu and select "Listed entry". From there, simply choose an entry from the encyclopaedia and confirm by pressing (A) twice and selecting "Listed entry". Search for this item".
From now on, as soon as you approach within a radius of 100 location units (see coordinates) of the object you are looking for, the detector will light up and tell you whether or not you are overheating.
The more you aim at your target, the brighter it will shine. If it doesn't shine completely, it's because you're not facing it perfectly, like the Sanctuary detector.
Fill in the Encyclopaedia easily
If you don't have the reflex or the motivation to take out your camera at the first sign of something new, you don't have to do without the Encyclopaedic Detector. In Faras's laboratory, you can buy an Encyclopaedia entry for a few rubies.
The encyclopaedic entries that Faras will give you are, however, random and rather expensive. And it's going to cost you a lot of money to complete the encyclopaedia if you've never photographed anything, but it's an excellent way of completing the few entries you're missing.
