The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been released and with it, players are ready to explore Hyrule and learn the story of Zelda and Link as Gannondorf has returned to power. Much like Breath of the Wild a lot of the story is told by visiting locations around the map. In this spoiler free Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom All Memories Guide we'll cover each of the memories that you can find around Hyrule and what order you should collect them.
What are the Tears of the Kingdom Memories?
When you first arrive in Hyrule head North West from Central Hyrule towards the Sky Tower. Once you unlock it and fly into the sky you'll recognize a symbol on the ground. These are the Geoglyphs and each contains a memory for you to unlock that will provide greater context for what is going on in Hyrule. Each of these Geoglyphs will have a small pool that you can interact with to unlock these memories.
After interacting with Impa about the Geoglyph she will point you toward the Forgotten Temple, those who completed all shrines in Breath of the Wild will recognize this as the temple you obtained the Tunic of the Wild in. This time when you travel there a map room will be accessible past the Mother Goddess statue. This room will hint towards the other Geoglyph statues, but as each contains a specific memory they won't reveal the order that you should obtain these memories to get the story in the correct order.
Tears of the Kingdom All Memories in Order
Each Memory location indicated in the map room will unlock one of the Tear of the Dragon memories. If you want to obtain the memories in the order relevant to the story then you can follow the image below.
If you want further assistance locating each of the memories then below is a list that will guide you to where on the Geoglyph you'll be able to obtain each of the pools.
If you want to collect these Memories in any order but want to wait until you've collected them all to watch them in order if you press Y and + on your controller repeatedly as a memory begins it will stop before you can see anything

What happens when you collect all Tear of the Dragon Memories?
After you finish obtaining the 11 memories from the Geoglyphs a new 12th memory will spawn in the North-East of the map on the small spit of land that spirals. Obtaining this memory will allow you to learn the location of a powerful item to aid in your quest to defeat Ganondorf!
