Dondons Location in Tears of the Kingdom (TotK)

You will find Dondons in the depths of the Bronas Forest when you meet an NPC Cima that is doing research about them. You will see a little canopy with a bonfire and a table under it. Next to it, you will see great buffalo-like creatures with glowing horns. Those are Dondons.

When you approach Cima take the Diamond you see on the table to prompt a conversation. After you talk to Cima you find out that these Dondon animals have a weird but amazing power that you can use.

How Can You Use Dondons for Your Benefit?

The unusual power that Dondons hide is the ability to create Diamonds, the most valuable stone in the game. You can get Diamonds from a Dondon by feeding it Luminous Stone and then waiting for it to process it and poop out a Diamond.

However, you don’t have to wait around for this to happen as it won’t be instantaneous. Depending on the number of Luminous Stones you have, you can feed the herd of Dondons and then leave to explore the world or maybe complete a quest or two. Come back after a while and your Diamonds will be waiting for you.
