Finally complete the Firefly's Light sub-quest ( more detail below ). After all of the above quest are complete rest for the day and you can speak to the guards. They will say the heirloom has been stolen! Talk to paya and she will be so upset she needs Link to stay with her for the day. Lucky, Link the ladies man! Afterward, it will be 9:00 PM gametime and if you mess up the first time you can always wait until Night again. However, you want to try and follow the guard Dorian. I personally found him at the Orange Circle around 2:00 AM ( nighttime). If he is not there you may need to follow Paya and Olkin first or sleep until the next night.
If you do find Dorian, his story will be revealed and a Member of the Yiga Clan, a blade master will do battle with Link. This Yiga Blademaster can be tough so use a defense potion and have at least 5 hearts. The trick is that he is very easy to get a flurry attack or perfect dodge on. Just do a back flip before his attack and you should eventually beat him this way. If it is taking too long use a atttack power elixir. When the Yiga Clan member is defeated, more lore is revealed as well as the Secret Shrine, Rookee's Blessing. Head inside the shrine and you will receive a chest with the Edge of Duality as a free reward with no puzzle. Following that will be the spirit orb. Final note I forget to mention, you may have to do the Playtime with Cottia side quest as well. So if things aren't working out try that one as well, apologies.
Talk to the two twin brothers that look like Talon from the stable in Ocarina of Time and you can race against his time. This is the side quest and it may take a few attempts. Read what the townsfolk say about horses and remember to practice this quest could take a few tries. Most importantly is that sometimes a horse appears very close to the stables. That is the horse you want to make it easier to complete the challenge. Overall however it is not that difficult and you will learn how to ride horses.
Once you have acquired a horse talk to the man that runs the stable and you can stock up to 5 horses. Apparently there are several stables across Hyrule that connect to each other and I guess you can call forth any previous horse to that new stable. You may also use down on the directional pad to whistle which will call your horse over to Link if it is near Link's vicinity. Finally you can control your horse by pressing ZL to lock-on to it and command it if the horse is stuck.
Please note that the game states about having other available companions. I may create a horse section right here in this guide if I feel it is necessary stay tuned daily. A few more things, the first is that spotted horses are easier to tame than straight colored horses. Straight or one colored horses are better in terms of speed and stamina yet once again harder to tame. The first time you attempt to ride a straight horse you must mash the L button as fast as possible to calm it down. Remember to use the L button to be nice to your horse only after giving it a command. This will increase Link's horse bond with the companion. The higher the bond the easier it is to control the horse.
This quest can be acquired once you reach the Dueling stables past the dueling peaks in the West Necluda area. Go inside the stable and you should see two men talking about some kind of treasure. If you pay them 100 rupees they will give you some information and start the quest sequence. There will be no map marker just a hint after paying them. However it was simple enough to find for me.
All you have to do is head over the two bridges from the stables and head for the source of the river. The Source is the waterfall where the river starts. Head to that point and there is also a korok nearby under a gray rock. You can climb from the right side to the boulders blocking the cave entrance. Use some remote bombs and detonate when you are at a safe distance. Head inside the cave and open all the chest for some nice materials. Finally there is one more bombable wall in the back. Use a bomb on it and open the chest to reveal the awesome Flame Blade. Opening one chest will complete the quest but I surely would open them all including the final one for the sword.
You must first get his Maracas though. They are located just north of Hestu and are pretty simple to get. Defeat the Bokoblins at the enemy campsite and than the skull chest #6 in this guide will unlock. Inside the skull chest are the Maracas key item. Bring the Maracas to Hestu and give him one korok seed to learn how to level up your inventory. Next, give him 2 more as the price increases each time apparently. Once you give him the last two the quest will be completed. Hestu will tell Link to meet him in the Korok Forest to the north of this area. We will delve more into this later if the quest continues for now it is complete. See the Korok Seed section for more information.
The recipes will be listed in the crafting section below so far now just know that they aren't too interesting. I felt they were pretty under powered as well so I will just list them once in the recipe section of this guide under crafting once again. Do this quest if you are a food fanatic or a completionist.
This is a very easy quest but it may be necessary to complete the secret blessing shrine quest near the great fairy fountain. Talk to the woman that likes Link at the curious quiver shop in Kakariko Village. Then go and shoot the 4 torches near the statue of the goddess. Return to the woman for your reward as well as her hitting on Link some more!
- Traveler's Sword: This sword can be found near the smaller waterfall at Kakariko Village always.
- The Fire rod can be found off of Fire wizzrobe enemies, some are located right near the wasteland tower.
- Moblin clubs can be found off of moblins especially early on in the game.
- Duplex Bow's can be found always off of basic yiga footsoldiers that hunt Link.
- Windcleavers can be found off of Yiga Blademasters that hunt Link.
- Ancient Battle Axe+ can be found off of a Guardian Scout in a modest test of strength shrine. They respawn with every blood moon.
- Frostspears are pretty tough to locate, but later on in the game the Coliseum Ruins at Central Hyrule will have tons of enemies with them equipped.
- Ancient Short Sword, can finally be purchased at Robbie's tech lab in Akkala.
One more interesting thing about this quest is if you read Purah's diary. It is lengthy but develops her great character more so. It even gives a few hints about how Link was put into the Shrine of Ressurection and what took place in-between the 100 years of his slumber. Afterward, if you talk to Purah she will know you read the diary and eliminate all of your Sheikah slate information as a cute 6 year old joke. Fortunately for Link she was only kidding. I got to admit though she got me!
This quest is pretty simple especially if you like exploring and gathering, most specifically crickets. Talk to Manny who is a strange dude that seems to have bad luck with woman. He is hanging around near the Inn at Hateno Village. After talking to him talk to Prima but you must go behind the desk to ask her the secret question. Once you do she will tell you something random that she likes which is crickets. Go back to manny and he will ask Link to get him 100 crickets! Then he backs down to starting with only 10 crickets. Find or give him ten crickets if you already have them. Crickets are located all over this region. Once you have 10 hand them over to Manny for the quest completion and a Silver Rupee worth 100 Rupees.
Once you have 30 pieces of wood all you need to do is get the Rupees now. Remember that bosses like Stone Talus and his brothers respawn after every blood moon. Stone Talus may be a chore to farm but you can acquire precious materials this way. With just a few farms of Stone Talus you should have enough rupees if you follow other sections of this guide. If not maybe you should wait on this quest for a bit. Go pay Bolton with the wood and rupees during the daytime only. Bolton will then setup your house with your first weapon rack. This is awesome but we want more right? Talk to Hudson at this point and he will tell you about a new job in another area of the game. We will get that one later, for now talk to Bolton again. He says he can furnish your house for 5,000 rupees. At this point I didn't have enough but we will be keeping everyone updated daily.
This is the 2nd and final update most likely for the Hylian Homeowner quest. Apparently Bolton claimed earlier that you needed 5,000 rupees to refurnish the house. Well that may be true as I returned with 5,000 rupees and I had the option to refurnish several things around the house. However, it only cost maybe 1,500 rupees to complete the quest and get everything Bolton has to offer. So go figure maybe I read something wrong earlier.
You will acquire 3 weapon racks, 3 shield racks, and 3 bow racks. You can acquire a bed to sleep in, but not a soft bed. Link can have a sign input outside that says "Link's House". Flowers and trees as well as lighting and that is about it. I kinda wish there was more to do with this quest. I still like keep my weapons on racks especially my favorite ones. I am a little bummed about the bed not having a bonus, but that may be a little too overpowered and make less use of rupees for say a spa treatment or the extra price for a soft bed. Overall it is still worth doing this quest for at least the mounts and racks alone.
Finally, you will need 3 Ancient Cores to level up your stasis. Stasis + allows you to stop even enemies in time and it is rather useful and fun to use. Ancient Cores however can be very rare and I only have found 3. I found 2 in dungeons and 1 Ancient Core can be found in all four Divine Beast dungeons. There may be one or two in a shrine at the moment in this guide. I will be updating this when I find more static locations. Regardless once you have all the components and leveled up the runes the quest will be completed.
Know that jewelry also has a few interesting perks about it. You now have a use for all the ruby, diamonds and precious gem materials that you can find. Not only can we sell them for rupees but we now have the option of crafting jewelry with them so be careful not to sell them for rupees if you want that special jewelry accessory. Accessory items seem to be limited to the head of Link at the moment. You can not wear another headpiece item in this case. Finally, jewelry offers unique attribute bonuses that are mostly elemental. However, I have noticed that the diamond circlet actually cranks up your defense vs Guardian enemies and I found that very cool. They all also have a unique appearance so enjoy!
The Eighth Heroine:
The Gerudo Highlands is directly north of Gerudo Desert. It may be unmarked on your map if you have not reached the tower yet. In that case first you must trek to the tower. The tower is north of the Clan Yiga Hideout. You should be able to see it even from the desert area right outside Gerudo Town. Be sure to place a Pin on it with the Sheikah Slate. Now it can get very hot in the daytime here so it would be wise to have the Gerudo set on for the heat resistance. However, it will get really cold later. It will get so cold that the warm doublet will become useless if you have one and you should!
If you need to stay warm and especially for a long journey like this you are going to need to cook some warming food and elixirs. One that comes to mind is spicy peppers. You can throw 5 of these inside a cooking pan for a pretty good warming meal. There are several meals and elixir's you can make to warm you up. However you will most likely need at least a mid-level warming boost I could be wrong but once again it is very cold atop the Gerudo Highlands and where the Statue of the Eighth Heroine is located precisely.
Once you are prepared head for that tower. Know that you must wrap around the tower and paraglide or you will run out of stamina when climbing up it. Look for the highest point on the mountains that you can paraglide to get on top of the tower. Once you have activated the tower it becomes much easier. There is a strange marking on the world map that looks like a spear-head or arrowhead. Some say it even looks like a triangle. However this exact location on the world map can only be seen at max zoom. Max zoom in on your map from the actual text that says Hemmar's Descent.
If you slowly scroll down from there you should find the arrow head. It is also almost like there are 2 arrowheads on the map and one is colored darker than the other. Regardless that is the location you need to pin point. It is a long run and once you get there be sure to take a picture of the torso of the statue. If there is an exclamation point over the statue while using your camera, then you did not get a good enough picture so double check. Final piece of advice for this quest is to save your game often manually. Once again save your game often manually. When you teleport back to Bozai he will reward you with the Sand Boots for keeps. However, you must return the snow boots.
The sword is located on a plateau guarded by a black moblin and there is also a golden hilt sword right in that location. It may be hard to actually see the sword, because it is so big you might mistake it for a boulder or mountain. Remember south of the Gerudo Summit text on the world map screen. On a 4-5 level plateau if that doesn't help see my video section below at the very end of this guide. Once you have taken a picture of the sword, fast travel back to Gerudo Town exterior and talk to Bozai he will give you his boots right off his feet. Kind of gross but these are the snow boots and they are cool. Now we get to keep them for good just wash them first.
First get up on the hill so Molduga can't hit Link then toss a bomb to make a ? mark appear above it's head. This will draw it's attention towards Link. Next wait for it to jump out of the sand and then bomb it with an explosive. Use remote bombs well timed or bomb arrows. It will then lie on the ground vulnerable for a few moments. This is when I like to use the under appreciated boomerang. A forked or tri lizal one is ideal here because they are common in this area. Remember that boomerangs deal double damage when Link throws them! If you get a critical hit it could be x3 or x4 damage but I am not sure on that one. Regardless with this method and some well timed attacks and catches Molduga will be dead as well as a more enjoyable battle. Molduga is located passed the electric lizalfos campsite of dragon bones. It is once again at North Dragon's Exile on the world map.
Walk the tight folds saving each of the man's 4 friends. Once you have freed and located all of them you can return back to the man at the Gerudo Stables. He will thank link so much and give him some joyful wisdom as well as a gold rupee which is worth 300 rupees.
I started with Upper Zorana you should have the Zora armor in full equipped as well as some energizing elixir's and food items. Your doing this so you can climb mountains and just beat the whole quest quicker. After Upper Zorana head towards Mount Polymus where we fought the red maned Lynel earlier. Be sure to stamp these locations as you complete them, it is an easier way of knowing you got them already. From Mount Polymus you can head towards the Zora bridge and than work your way around in a circle. The zora also claims there is a treasure near one of these monuments and I am pretty sure it just leads to the Zora Helmet.
From this point it can still be annoying but know that they all are around the road south of Zora's Domain. The 4th Stone Monument if going counter clockwise is located between Ralis Pond and Ruto Lake. The 5th is near the Oren Bridge. The 6th is located south of Zobodon Highlands. The 7th is located near Luto's Crossing. The 8th is located right by Ruto's Mountain. Rutala Dam area holds the 9th stone monument and finally the 10th will be at Ruto Lake section right near Zora's Domain center. After acquiring them all head back to the Zora at the yellow marker. He will give you a precious diamond as a reward and also once again this quest will hint towards getting the Zora Helmet. Finally if your stuck and don't want to watch a video or use this guide he will give hints if you talk to him as a reminder. He also gives a counter of the monuments left.
The quest location is located near Zora's Domain a bit south of it at the Bank of Wishes on the world map. Talk to finley to start the quest. The road is long once again and don't forget the final barricade at the giant skull fishhead which is also a Lizalfos enemy campsite. Be sure to blow up the barrels with a bomb arrow or a good thrown remote or ball bomb. If you don't the letter will be stuck and your going to most likely have to start from scratch. It is an annoying quest and it has a most controversial ending. The reward is 300 rupees or a gold rupee.
That was a mistake due to all the grass and things in the area that can catch on fire. Overall though it is still very simple if you have arrows. If you don't be sure to stock up at Curios Quiver in Kakariko Village or of course the Hateno arrow shop. Zora's Domain has a few as well if you like cold ones. Just blast the Hinox in his eye than finish it off anyway you would like. Return to the Zora Torfeau on the 2nd level of Zora's domain for your reward.
As for the amber, these are fairly simple enough to farm across any stone or ore deposit in the game. Amber is the most common of all the ores in the game. If you do not wish to fast travel or venture out too far, you can also just look around the Southern Mine and even the outskirts of Goron city for ore deposits. Goron City is abundant in rare ores however, amber is ever as abundant.
After the trade, you have formed a merchant's oath with the Gerudo Woman. She will randomly select an ore such as Ruby, Sapphire, Topaz, Amber, and possibly diamonds. If you choose to trade with her you will have to exchange in only forms of 10. The Gerudo woman will purchase these ore's from Link at a higher amount than any of the average shop keepers in the entire game. The catch is you must have 10 at a time and the return isn't the best for your time perhaps.
To initiate this quest Link must make it to the Southern Mine which is directly South of the Goron City. At the Southern Mine, you may see a Hylian. This Hylian is wearing a strange caged helmet which will later be revealed as the Flame Breaker helm. Talk to the man as he will have an exclamation point above his character avatar. Agree to help him and the quest will go to the Adventure Log.
This is a fairly easy quest that was implied to help the player's get through death mountain. Mainly because many players including myself may have missed the idea of going to Foothill Stable first and talking to the woman named Gaile. Remember to catch the lizards you must either be crouched and quickly grab them with the appropriate action button. Alternatively, Link can eat some sneaky food or even drink down a sneaky elixir. This would save you a bit of time if you are in a hurry. Once you have acquired at least 10 Fireproof Lizards. Return to the Hylian man in the cage helmet. He will reward Link with a piece of Flame Breaker chest armor. You may sell this if you have a double.
Finally, to upgrade the Flame Braker set in full, you must have a good amount of Fire Proof Lizards. This is most likely the best spot to farm fireproof lizards in the game. They are also abundant all over Death Mountain and of course Goron City. Once your Flame Breaker Armor reaches rank #2 you will become Fireproof. This makes you immune to Most fire attacks and surely all natural fire hazards.
Firstly if you remember the main quest, you would remember the cannons. Roll a bomb into the cannons then hit the lever with a weapon of your choice. You can detonate the bombs anytime you would like, this makes aiming the cannon simple and easy. Do this action to talk out as many Lizalfos enemies as you can! They shoot flaming arrows that pack tons of damage from thier strengthened Lizalfos Bows. Ice arrows can also be your friend here.
Make your way around the area, back to the cave where we found Yunobo. Get to the highest point and travel for the marker. Note, this was my method of completing the quest. Alternatively, the player or Link may also climb several mountains to get around. That may waste way too much time and food/procurement items so I like this method better. Once you hit the marker get ready for a very tough talus.
This stone or Igneous Talus will not do too much damage when he throws fire at link with both arms. That would be only if you are equipped with a Two Star Flamebreaker Set. If not you may be in for more trouble. Truly come prepared as fireproof lizards will once again rank up your Flamebreaker Set and they are easy to acquire. Most importantly, or most dangerously is the Igneous Talus' body slam attack. It is still absolutely devastating and even more so when he is in fire or Igneous Talus form. It can obliterate around 10 hearts if not more or less. The good thing is the Talus stone is on his head and he is easy to climb. Once again it is only safe to climb this Talus with the Flamebreaker Set. There is a small time when the Igneous Talus will completely cool down. An Ice Arrow to the body can possibly help with that, but I am not 100% positive. Regardless that would be the best time to attack this particular Stone Talus or Igneous Talus.
When you have defeated the Igneous Talus, you can fast travel back to the Goron City shrine. Return towards the blacksmith and report of your news to the Goron that has given Link the task of defeating the Stone Talus. Report that you have defeated the monstrosity and the Goron will reward Link with 100 Rupees as well as completion of the quest.
Place a marker in between the Eldin Bridge and the Goron Hot Spring. You are going to be looking for a cone shaped mountain. This cone shaped mountain has a bombable layer of brown boulders on one of it's sides. Bomb it with either a roll or remote bomb. This will reveal a trust Drillshaft weapon which is the first of this guide. The drillshaft is low in power but it is one of the few ones that are in the game if the only one that I have encountered statically. Once you have acquired the weapon you can return to the young Goron at the Goron Hot Spring. He will reward Link by allowing him to keep the treasure as well as completing the quest.
Kilton will be located Northwest of the Akkala Ancient Tech Laboratory. There is a large skull on the map and Kilton will be located inside that skull on the left eye island only at nighttime. You may want a Thunderhelm just in case lightning is a problem for you. You should also make sure to have at least some wood and flint to pass by the time if you don't make it too the Island at nighttime. Finally, if it starts raining you may be stuck waiting so try and venture out at a good time to link all the information together.
When you meet Kilton he will talk for a bit and introduce himself as well as his shop. He will not open up shop here on this night. You must find Kilton at one of the games major towns/cities at night only. A Good location is right near Zora's Domain at the Dagah Keek shrine location. Kilton should be visible right from the shrine and within a very close walking distance from it as well. At this point be sure to take a picture of Kilton with the Sheikah Camera. When you have a good photo with exclamation point, take the picture. Once complete return to Hoz at the East Akkala Stables and show him the picture to be rewarded with 100 rupees and quest completion.
Link will need to light a blue flame yet again and bring it all the way back to the research lab. However, this time around it will be raining often. This will extinguish the fire from your torch making it harder to run through this. You will have a map marker for the blue flames location. There will be lamps along the way to serve as mini-checkpoints. Best thing to do is have the torch from the tech lab nearby or another from earlier. Try and be quick but if it starts raining and you do not want to wait, just fast travel to the previous stable and sleep. Check the whether at the bottom hand corner of the screen and try and finish when there is no rain coming.
Once you eventually bring the flame back to the tech lab, a few things will open up. First you can complete the quest. If you are interested in Robbie and his wife's back story read his very long diary or journal on his desk. Next, you will be able to purchase ancient items and weapons/arrows from the robot Cherry. This is a huge farming part of the game and opens up being able to hunt down Guardians with ease. You can craft tons of ancient items here and even get the full ancient armor set. This is one of the better quest in the game and I suggest everyone go for it on your first run or at least eventually. You would probably avoid this one in a speed run and maybe even one life or no damage if applicable.
This is an amazingly fun quest too do and one of if not the best side-quest in the game right now for me. It has a nice back story, gets cute, and is rather emotional at times. There are also plenty of nice rewards for each segment of the quest. When you talk to Hudson and get started, Link will need several bundles of wood. Link, will need well over 100 bundles of wood in total to complete this side-quest so get chopping. Don't sell your wood if you are reading this now and make sure to chop some along the way during this quest. Give the bundles of wood to Hudson so he can build home for the future residents. First he will tell Link to find a Goron with the last name son in it.
To find the Goron, named Greyson, head to the Southern Mine, south of Goron City. There is a large and small goron with son at the end of there names. Around night-time talk to the Goron sitting by the cooking pot at the Southern Mine. Tell him of Tarrey Town and he will talk off with a short cut-scene. Return to Tarrey Town to find Greyson and Pelison working. Pelison is Greyson's younger brother and will now sell all types of the ores in the game at his shop for a price. This includes even precious diamonds for around 2,000 Rupees.
Return to Hudson and offer him more wood. Next, you will need to head to the Kara Kara Bazaar. Talk to the woman to the right of the Inn at noon-time. Her name is Rhondson and she is looking for love and to offer her artisan abilities somewhere else. Tell her of Tarrey Town then you can return to the town and she will be selling the Gerudo Voe Set at her newly opened armor shop. This is an alternative to buying the set at the Gerudo Secret Club. Rhondson will also give Link a hint of her future love life and this leads us to the next part of the quest.
After giving Hudson even more wood, go to Rito Village and speak with Fyson who is a Rito that wants to leave the nest and be free from his annoying mother. This Rito will sell arrows upon your return to tarrey town. In-fact he sells a huge abundance of every arrow in the game with the exception of Ancient Arrows. He also sells them in nice bundles so you can stock up quite quickly.
For the last recruitment or close to it, you must recruit the priest of the Zora's Domain. He is located on the second floor of the domain and is looking into the small water pool where the zora spear respawn is located. Talk to the Zora priest and tell him of Tarrey Town. After the cut-scene and your return to the town, the Priest has adorned the statue of the goddess Hylia in all it's beauty! He also has opened up a very comforting inn right here inside Tarrey Town. Talk to Hudson again and he will tell you of the great news. Hudson has asked Rhondson to marry him and she has agreed apparently. One final chore request from Hudson is to tell Bolson and Karson of the wedding. In this case head back to Bolson Construction Company at Hateno village. It is located right near the cooking pot and Link's home if you purchased it during the Hylian Homeowner quest.
Finally, return to Tarrey Town and talk to Hudson to have the wedding begin. You will enjoy a great cut-scene and now a cooking pot will also be available inside the town. Talk to Hudson one last time after this and he will give Link 3x Diamonds to complete the quest. There may be some other secrets in this town as well and I will add them here if possible or somewhere else in this guide. Once again a very nice, creative and most rewarding sub-quest that is well worth doing.
On that note, you may want to equip some ancient arrows to take out two of the guardians with ease. The choice is yours however you would like as Torrin Wetland is not too far west of Tarrey Town. You can also get there very easily if you take the Akkala Tower and float using your paraglider to the area or location. Once there just defeat the two guardians than return to the man in Tarrey Town for the rest of your rupee reward and completion of the quest.
Only at nighttime you should go to the widow of the house to the right of the Tarrey Town in. Be sure to listen in with the appropriate action button and he will hear the situation. There will be little information as well as no marker. You must bake a cake using the little knowledge we have from the parents of the child. Light the cooking pot near Bolson and his co-worker and use the ingredients mentioned above and only use one of each. This should create a monster cake, once you have it bring it to the girls mother. Talk to them a few more times to complete the quest and this will complete all Akkala Sub-quests, Congratulations!
If you are having trouble or are out of Fire arrows, try using either a meteor or fire rod to melt the ice around the Frost Talus. You can also use your Urbosa's Fury technique to take down the beast. If all else fails and your out of any means of fire. You can try the original under the arm swipe tactics and attempt too hit the crystals with arrows. This may be more wasteful than anything else so your best bet would be just too stock up on some fire arrows. You can find several at many towns in the game. Kakariko Village's Curious Quiver shop comes to mind simply enough for fire arrows. Once the Talus is defeated return to Gesane who is at the Rito Stable location where we started the quest. He will reward Link with 100 rupees as well as this completes all of the Tabantha Frontier Sub-Quests.
Kula, the korok will give Link this side-quest. She is located to the left of the storehouse inside the deku tree outside of the storehouse. She can be a little confusing to spot as there are so many koroks here. Another tip would be that she is located to the left of the Yellow face Korok that offers the Korok trials to Link. Once you have the ice rod show it too Kula and this will complete the sub-quest.
The third material is a sun shroom, which can be found in various places in the game. One of which is near the side-quest from Hateno Village ancient tech laboratory. Remember when we first received the camera? Head to that location and you can find a large abundance of Sun Shrooms there. The name of the quest is Sun Shroom sensing and the area is located over the mountain from the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab.
The fourth material, is a voltfin trout. This one is hard to come by and I am pretty sure it is unavailable at Zora's Domain. You can farm one or two of these at the Hebra Plunge, which is a very far way off. Thanks to Caticulated's video on youtube.com for the video information. I have not found another good static location for the voltfin trout yet and I apologize for that. If you have one and didn't start this quest yet hang onto them as they are very rare.
Finally, the Lynel Hoof can be farmed off of any Lynel enemy. Head to the Colisseum in Central Hyrule as a Lynel will always spawn in that location after a blood moon event. There are also several more Lynel spawn locations, mentioned in this guide. See the bestiary section here and check for the Lynels, there is a large amount of information there. Once you offer the Lynel Hoof the quest will soon complete and you will receive a precious diamond as you're reward.
Near the Hebra North Summit text on the world map, you should see a very small pool of water if fully zoomed in to the slight southeast. If you go too the pool of water you should use Cryonis and place two pillars of ice on the water together. Please, save you're game before going to the snowball up the small mountain east of the small pool of water. Make sure to locate the snowball and pick it up. Throw it down the hill so it rolls over the two Cryonis ice pillars and hits the gate below, breaking it and granting Link entrance too the ice cavern. Inside the ice cavern, simply take a picture of the Leviathan's bones.
The next two Leviathan bones are easy, especially if you have completed the desert and Eldin Region areas of the game. Go to the North of Eldin and it may not be visible text on the map if you have not been too this area yet. Once you get there, Great Eldin Skeleton or something similar should pop up on the screen. If you are lost please see my video playlist at the very end of this guide and type in " Korok Seed Trials" in my search engine.
Finally, you can head to the Hawa Koth Shrine which is right near the Great Fairy in the Gerudo Desert Region. This is also the Gerudo Great Skeleton. Be sure to take a picture of it only when the exclamation mark is showing or it will not count. Once you have all three pictures return too the men at the Serenne Stable. They will reward Link with 300 rupees or a gold rupee.
You should know, that you will have to stick too the paths, or you can get lost in the lost woods and have to restart from the beginning of the Korok Village. Once you reach the first Korok too the south, he will instruct Link too follow his friend without getting noticed. This is very annoying, because even if you reach the end of the level and get caught you must start from the beginning all over again!
There are three tricks that I can tell you, possibly four. First wear you're obvious Sheikah Set of armor. Next, stay crouched and keep a very nice distance. Stay as far away from the Korok as possible while still keeping him in sight. Once he reaches the broken tree, keep your distance as some tree branches will fall down and it will make the Korok frightened a bit. Eventually you will reach the halfway point and go through a hollow log. At this point stay and wait at the end of the log, until the Korok says he thinks that he sees a ghost.
Once the Korok states the ghost comment, he will walk back a good amount and this can cause you too get caught if you were following too closely, restarting the quest. If you can get past that part, it's simple enough from that point. Make you're way too the shrine, once the Korok says he is done and such, you can approach him freely and activate the shrine. The Shrine is a blessing Shrine. The reward inside will be an ancient core.
Next up is the Trial of Second Sight shrine quest, talk to the korok named Zooki too initiate the shrine quest at the 2nd furthest yellow marker in the Korok village. This one is easier than the first trial, but is still pretty tough. I found the twisty puzzle at the end rewarding enough though. What you want to do is look for the iron inside the mouths of all the trees. There are about 6 iron balls in total. You may have to stretch out a bit with some trial and error fails. Once you see the two torches lit along the way you are in the right direction.
Head to the two lit torches and defeat the enemies that are probably stal-enemies. Use bombs remote, than roll too finish them off. Next, pick up the rusty shield and drop it in the mouth of the tree as instructed. Finally, here is the twisted part that I enjoyed! The tree is referring to the actual treasure chest that just appeared, so put that chest in the mouth of the next tree after riding the raft too it. This will open the way too the next shrine which is a blessing shrine and complete the shrine quest. Inside the reward is a Giant Ancient Core.
This was the easiest of all the korok trials for me. If you have revali's gale you can fly over all the enemies very easily. If not you can run through pretty easily as well. You might want to bring some fire arrows along the way for the crates near the start of the trial. However, beware that you're weapons are made of wood and if they burn they will be destroyed. This will restart the trial from the beginning if any single one of them are destroyed. Once you make it too the shrine, you will receive a blessing, inside the chest is another Ancient Core. Finally, you can now talk to Chio at the Korok village. He will offer Link, three hearty truffles for completing the trials. This will complete the Korok Trials sub-quest.
|A Gift for the Great Fairy:
You will also need a large number of rupees if this is your last great fairy that you will awaken. It may take up to 3,000 rupees to awaken this great fairy. Once you have paid the rupees to the great fairy, return to Toren at the Tabantha Bridge Stables. He will then let you keep the 500 rupees he lent you. This will complete the side-quest as well as activate another great fairy.
Once you find the location, speak to the NPC with the exclamation marker above their head. They will instruct you to find the giant horse. The giant horse is located near the Taobag Grasslands which is northwest of this location. Be sure to take a picture of the horse for your Hyrule Compendium or you may forget to for later and have to purchase the picture at Hateno Tech Laboratory. Also, note that this area is very dry in appearance and has weird trees. You should notice the horse due to it's size and it being surrounded by several smaller horses.
Use the shiekah armor set to sneak up on the Giant Horse. It will take a large amount of stamina to soothe the creature! Make sure to have some stamina food or elixirs or at least near maximum the amount of stamina. This means have your stamina meter upgraded to the maximum. Keep mashing the "L" button and the horse will be soothed. You can now ride it but it has has no indications on how many times you can make the Giant Horse go faster. You can still soothe it to increase your bond however.
The next problem is the route to actually getting back to the NPC to complete the quest. I got stuck here and took a long way back and eventually went down a mountain side, through the bokoblin camp I mentioned earlier. This is possibly, but perhaps it is not the best route. I apologize but you can do what I did. Just head down the mountains and keep tapping the "A" button. The horse will eventually run down a mountain side or at least fall down one. Avoid enemies or the horse may knock Link off and you will have to mount it again. Your reward will be a silver rupee and of course the Giant Horse. Note, this is one of the better side-quest in the game.
The Horseback Hoodlums:
Once at the stable, talk to the woman feeding the horses around noontime. She will tell you her story and if you look up at the top of the horse head of the lakeside stable there is an axe sitting on the head of the horse. Climb up to this area when it is not raining nor a lightning storm. Remove the axe then show it to the woman. She will reward Link with quest completion as well as the Rubber Helmet for the rubber armor set.
