How to Get the Autobuild Power in Tears of the Kingdom

There are many fantastic new abilities that Link is able to use in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Most of them you get during the tutorial area of the game. However, there is one new power, Autobuild, that players have to go through some odd hoops to get in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It is a bit obscure and hard to acquire, so I’ve got your back with what you need to do.

Requirements for Unlocking the Autobuild Ability in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Before you can even get the Autobuild power for Link in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you need to complete some initial steps. First and foremost, this optional ability requires you to complete the Great Sky Island tutorial area, gain the core four powers, and then head to Lookout Landing once you land in Hyrule.

Here, you want to complete the initial quest for Robbie and Josha to head into the Depths. Go through this quest, which will help you unlock your first Lightroot and unlock the Camera power. After this, return to the surface and complete your first dungeon.

This means taking on one of the four Regional Phenomena at Rito Village, Gerudo Town, Goron City, or Zora’s Domain. Once you complete at least one temple, head back to Lookout Landing for another quest “A Mystery in the Depths” to venture further underground.

Where to Unlock Autobuild in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Once you have the quest from Josha to venture back into the Depths and follow the statues, you are finally ready to unlock the Autobuild ability. Sure, you can follow the statues’ gazes and take your time with the quest, if you want.

But if you prefer to skip straight to the place you need to visit for Autobuild, head to the Great Abandoned Central Mine. This place is far south of where you did the Camera quest and is located at around 0678, -1814, -0511.

Here, you can speak with the Construct to learn the Autobuild power and test it out before engaging in a quick boss battle. This ability lets you store saved vehicle schematics and recreate them instantly if you have the right parts. If you don’t have the right parts, you can use Zonaite to create any vehicle wherever you are in the world.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available for the Nintendo Switch.
