Location and Uses

The Hint Glasses are received from the Fortune Teller north of Kakariko Village.[2] When equipped, they give Link the ability to see Hint Ghosts.[3] This allows him to access hints if stuck at a certain area in exchange for a Play Coin.[4][5]

The Hint Glasses can also be used while Wall Merged, and can be seen on Link in his Painting form.
