Where to Find
Acorns can be obtained by killing Bushy-Tailed Squirrels or destroying certain trees. You can also find them occasionally on the ground.
To get you started, you can find up to 18 Acorns by searching the base of the three large trees at the Sage Temple Ruins, west from Central Tower. Remember there are decayed Guardians around Central Tower.
Next, there are 6 Acorns divided into two groups within the Forest of Spirits on the Great Plateau.
Moving on, if you don’t mind murdering some cute little squirrels, you can find up to 7 around Lake Floria. You can fast-travel to Lakeside Stable, then head east along the bridge. You’ll run into a single squirrel (with some tiny birds nearby) and then a group of three squirrels bunched together (that are easy prey for a Bomb Arrow).
Last but not least, if you don’t have the heart to kill squirrels or they keep running before you can whack them, you can try your hand on a simpler target: trees.
Certain trees, particularly those with many leaves, have a 20% chance of dropping Acorns. While it’s not as high as the squirrels’ drop rate, at least trees are extremely common. Also, if you feel bad for deforestation, trees will respawn very quickly.
You shouldn’t have problem finding trees, but if your mind is drawing a blank, try Dalite Forest south-east from Satori Mountain. The mountain itself is also a good place, but many trees are located near slopes and Acorns are round, so…
