Breath Of The Wild West Necluda Side Quests

Misko The Great Bandit
You can get this from the two guys talking in the back of the Dueling Peaks Stable. Talk to them twice and they will sell you info on the hideout of the Bandit for 100 Rupees, don’t worry you’ll make that back. You can find the hide out at the Sword on the map here.

The Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild Misko The Great Bandit Guide

Climb up the waterfall area until you reach some rocks you can blow up with a bomb. Inside the cave there you will find some chests with a bunch of gems you can sell inside. There is also a second rock you can break inside with the real treasure, Flameblade. Return to the two guys talking and they won’t believe you did it. You don’t get a reward from them but the quest will be complete and all the stuff in the cave is worth it anyways.

Wild Horses
You can get this from the guard outside of the stables. He will challenge you to bring back a newly tamed horse in under two minutes. Just go for the ones by the river to make this easy for yourself. Make sure you do it during the day, I did it at night the first time and the Skeletons scared my horses away. Return with the new horse for 50 Rupees.

The Priceless Maracas
You actually can’t miss this one, it is on the way to Kakariko Village. Hetsu will want you to get his Maracas back from the goblins that took them. Clear out the nearby camp and loot the chest for the quest item. Return to Hetsu and he will upgrade you inventory for a Korok seed. He will do this more once he returns to Korok forest so keep and eye out for those Korok Seeds.

Arrows Of Burning Heat
This one is from the Arrow shop in Kakariko Village. Talk to the shop owner and she will ask you to light the torches around the Goddess statue near Impa’s house. Accept and head down there with at least four arrows. Use the fire near the Statue to light your arrow and then light the for torches behind the Statue. Return to the shop owner for 20 rupees.

Flown The Coop
This one is from the Cucco Pen in Kakariko Village. Talk to Cado near there, he appears around 1 pm, and he will ask you to find his Cuccos that haven’t come home yet. There are 10 total and three are already in the pen so you need to find seven. One is at the entrance to the village, look over the fence to see him. Two is down below that right near the tiny bridge you can cross. Three is up the hill towards the shrine, sometimes it goes into the tall grass. Four is at the Goddess statue that you lit the torches at earlier. Five is inside the Plum Garden. Six is near the Carrot Field in the little stable there. And the last one is up on the roof of the Clothes shop right across from the pen.

The lady watching the Plum field doesn’t leave until 5 PM FYI. We also have a video if you need help finding them.

Kokos Kitchen
You can find this in Kakariko Village as well, at the cooking pot near the produce store. Koko will be there after 5 PM to cook dinner for her sister. She needs you to bring her a Swift carrot, which you can get at the Carrot Field by talking to the guy there. Return with the Carrot and she will give you some of what she cooks and you will complete the quest.

Cooking With Koko
Same as above but this time you need Goat Butter. I had to buy mine, it is in the Produce store.
Koko Cuisine
Cooking quest number three for Koko, Raw meat is needed this time. Go hunt some if you need it.
Playtime With Cottla
You need to find Cottla running around the village at about Noon to get this quest. You can choose to do Tag or Hide and Seek with her. If you play Hide and Seek with her she will hide behind Impa’s house. If you play tag with her you just have to catch her, the reward is Rock Salt for both of them.
By Fireflies Light
Somehow I missed this one for a long time, it is in Kakariko Village.

Breath Of The Wild By Fireflies Light

Go to this house at night and speak with the woman inside. She wants to see some Fireflies, which you can find around the village and up in the woods near here at night. Drop five of them next to her and she will get happy and reward you with 50 Rupees.

A Gift For My Beloved
This quest can be found near the Inn in Hateno Village. The guy there will say he wants to get a gift for the girl in the Inn but he doesn’t know what to get her. Go to the Inn and talk to the girl in there. You need to go to the side of the counter so she doesn’t just offer you a room. Return to Manny and tell him what Prima said, he will then ask for 10 Restless Crickets. I already had them but you can get them in the woods near here if you need them. You will get 100 Rupees for your trouble and the quest will be complete.

The Sheep Rustlers
Another Hateno Village quest. You can find this one up the path towards the Tech lab. There will be a girl with a who is talking about getting revenge. Turns out some of the goblins have been coming up from the shore to steal her sheep. Go down to the shore and on the cost you will find a small camp of goblins with one large goblin. Clear them out and return to the girl. You will know it’s the right camp because there are sheep there. You will get 10 Fresh Milk for the trouble.

Hylian Homeowner
In Hateno Village you can buy a house for 3000 Rupees and 30 Bundles of wood. After you buy it you can get some upgrades for the house as well.

We have a Home Upgrade Guide here if you want to know what all the Upgrades do.

From The Ground Up
From The Ground Up
After buying your house speak with one of the workers, Hudson. He will tell you that he’s being transferred to another place. It’s a long distance to the North in the Akkala Region – shown on the screenshot above. When you reach the location, Tarrey Town, you begin the process of rebuilding. The first part, he will request 10 bundles of wood. Next he will ask for a Goron but the name has to end with Son. Head to the Southern Mine at night and talk to Greyson there, he can normally be found at the cooking pot. He will head for Tarrey Town because he is sick of mining rocks.

Breath Of THe WIld Greyson Location

When you return the Gorons will sell ore and you will need 20 more Bundles of wood for the next house. He will then ask for a Gerudo who can fix up clothes. Head to the Kara Kara Bazaar and speak with Rhondson there, she will join up.

Breath Of The Wild Rhondson Location

Next he will ask for 30 Bundles of Wood to make another house. when you give him the 30 wood he will ask you to find a Merchant to set up a General store. The Merchant can be found int Rito Village, right near the Inn there.

Breath Of The Wild Fyson Location

Next he will ask for a Priest because he wants to get married to Rhondson. Of course before that he will need 50 Bundles of wood to complete the last house. You can find the priest in Zora’s Domain, he is in the back near the ponds. He will open up an Inn in town when he returns.

Breath Of The Wild Kapson Location

Lastly he will want his old boss to come see him get married. Reutrn to your house in Hateno Village and talk to them to get them to go to Tarrey Town. Return to Hudson afterwards and you will get your reward, three Diamonds. Of course the real reward is building a new town in Zelda for the first time ever.

Robbies Research
You get this in the Research Lab at the top of Hateno Village. When you talk to the girl she will tell you about her assistant Robbie and how he went off Akkala to study the Guardians. Getting to him isn’t easy so you might want to wait until you have more hearts to go. When you do get there he will need you to light the flame outside of his Lab. He marks the flame you need on the map, grab the torch from inside the lab and head over to it. You can’t run or jump with the flame so you have to do slow. There are other torches along the way but you don’t have to light them if you don’t want, I just used them to reset my torch when I cleared out enemies. When you return Robbie will let you use his machine to buy Guardian Gear. It isn’t cheap and the materials are hard to find but most of it is really strong.

Stranded On Eventide
Stranded On Eventide
Eventide is an island to the very South East corner of the map. You need to travel to the nearby Muwo Jeem Shrine up on the cliff and then use Glide to reach the island. It’s a long way and you will need at the very least 2.5 full bars of Stamina, so bring stamina food to use during flight. There are boats but I dread to think how long it would take to get there that way.

Once you land on the island you are stripped of all items and must complete a challenge using just your abilities and wits. I’ll update this with more information later as I was unable to complete the side quest at the first few attempts.

Breath Of The Wild West Lanayru Side Quests

Frog Catching
The Frog Catching Side Quest can be found in Zora’s Domain. There’s a small kid running around named Tumbo. Speak with him and he will ask you to give him five hot-footed frogs. You can find them all over, I already have most when I spoke with him. Check near the Shrine in Zora’s Domain, there’s a few hopping around there.

You get a Armoranth in exchange.

Luminous Stone Gathering
Luminous Stone Gathering
This is another quest in Zora’s Domain but it is not available until after you complete the story missions in that area. Speak with Ledo during the day, he’s tinkering with one of the archways at the location above. He asks you to find 10 Luminous Stones.

To find the Luminous Stones swim up Veiled Falls to the West and then travel North to Upland Zorana. You can find the Luminous Stones inside mining rocks. You get two Diamonds in return for completing the quest. You can also trade in 10 Luminous Stones for Diamonds in the future. Just speak with Ledo again.

The Giant Of Ralis Pond
The Giant Of Ralis Pond
Speak with Torfeau inside Zora’s Domain to get The Giant of Ralis Pond quest. You can find Ralis Pond just to the South West of Zora’s Domain, not hard to find. When you get there you need to kill Hinox. It’s not a difficult fight. Target his eye with arrows or throw your weapon at it to bring him down, do damage.

You get 100 Rupee’s for taking it down.

Lynel Safari
This is another Zora’s Domain quest. NEar the exit out of Zora’s Domain towards the Ploymus Mountains you will see a Zora named Laflat that has a side quest. She will ask you to climb the Ploymus Mountain and take a picture of the red maned Lynel at the top. All you have to do is get somewhat close and snap a picture, getting to close will most likely result in death. He is right at the top, near a bunch of Shock Arrows if you haven’t got them yet. When you get the picture, return to Laflat for the Zora Greaves that will help you with your swimming speed.

Zora Stone Monuments
Another quest inside Zora’s Domain, speak with Jiahto. He is near all the pools they sleep it, next to one of the Monument Stones. This is quite a lengthy quest with lots of images so we created a separate guide for it. Check out our Zora Stone Monuments guide.

Special Delivery
Special Delivery
The Special Delivery side quest can be found on the Bank of Wishes. South West of Zora’s Domain. A young girl will ask you to follow a love letter inside a case down the stream. As soon as you begin the quest she will toss the container into the river. You need to follow it all the way down the stream until it leaves Zora’s Domain and reaches Mercay Island. It will end up in a cove there near a tent.

It’s a long but easy side quest. Use bombs to blow up anything that blocks the container but be careful not to hit the container or you’ll have to start again. This is also a fantastic method of getting fish as letting the water push you down stream doesn’t take up any stamina. After speaking with the merchant that receives the letter travel back to Zora’s Domain and meet them in the town. You get 300 Rupees for completing the side quest.

A Wife Washed Away
Another quest you can find in Zora’s Domain. You get it from Fronk and he moves around a bit but he can normally be found here.

Breath Of The Wild A Wife Washed Away

When it jumps up and eats the bomb, blow it up and that will cause it to fall so you can strike it.

  • Extreme_ver1

    Since this site seems to be having difficulty updating the side quests, I’ve gathered more info about what missing ones I could find so far…..

    Hateno Tower Region:

    The Statue’s Bargain

    A Statue’s Bargain starts upon entering
    Hateno Village and encountering a very excited little boy.

    Upon talking to the boy, he tells you to
    follow him. The boy then leads you to a statue of what appears to be a demon.
    When first prayed to, the statue will scare you by taking either one of your
    heart containers or one of your stamina vessels and leaving you a measly 100
    rupees. When you confront the statue again, the statue promises to give back
    the heart container/stamina vessel for 120 rupees. The statue will defend
    itself by saying that you get to choose wether you get a heart container or a
    stamina vessel. Buying your heart/stamina back will end the quest.

    From here on out, you can use this statue
    to reallocate your orbs to grow hearts or stamina — for a price, of course.

    The Weapon Connoisseur

    Nebb is available running around
    the middle of Hateno Village roughly between noon and 7 pm. After you have
    started the quest, when you need to find him again, you can set this quest as
    the active one in the Adventure Log.

    Walkthrough

    Talk to Nebb to start the quest.

    Tip: If you have done the Sunshroom Sensing
    Side Quest and have Sensor+, you can talk to Symin at the Hateno Ancient Tech
    Lab and purchase equipment pictures for your compendium (at 100 rupees each,
    getting a random picture each time, can buy in bulk if desired) until you have
    a picture for your next objective. You can then set it as your Sensor+ target
    for help in finding one. If you’ve already taken a picture of it yourself, you
    can just use that instead of course and save money.

    Each of these weapons likely have multiple
    locations. The locations listed below are simply suggestions.

    Objective 1: Traveler’s Sword

    If you happen to have one already on you,
    you’re lucky, just show it to him. It doesn’t need to be equipped. Otherwise
    one can be found on the path just east of Inogo Bridge. (If using Sensor+, this
    is #204 in the Compendium.) He will give you a red rupee.

    Objective 2: Fire Rod

    A fire rod can be found on an enemy close
    to the Wasteland Tower. (If using Sensor+, this is #233 in the Compendium.)

    These bows can be found on most Yiga
    Footsoldiers, especially those outside their hideout. (If using Sensor+, this
    is #343 in the Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for a purple rupee.

    Objective 5: Windcleaver

    Found on Yiga Blademasters. They’re
    available in various places but become more available after clearing the Yiga
    Clan Hideout. One can be found in the small forest northwest of the bottomless
    swamp. (If using Sensor+, this is #279 in the Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for
    a silver rupee.

    Objective 6: Ancient Battle Axe+

    This drops off Guardian Scout III, which
    can be found at many of the “Modest Test of Strength” shrines. As
    long as a blood moon has passed, you can revisit and kill the enemy again even
    if you’ve already beaten the shrine. (If using Sensor+, this is #274 in the
    Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for a silver rupee.

    Objective 7: Frostspear

    If you haven’t done it yet, you can get one
    at the shrine in the spring of wisdom (Jitan Sa’mi Shrine). You can also get it
    off a Stalnox in the Lake region. (If using Sensor+, this is #302 in the
    Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for a gold rupee.

    Objective 8: Ancient Short Sword

    After completing the Robbie’s Research
    sidequest, you can purchase one at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. Show it to Nebb
    for a diamond, and you’ll finally complete this quest.

    The Hero’s Cache

    To begin the side quest, talk to Kass on
    the tallest rock pillar in Kitano Bay.

    Answer “Yes, please” when he asks
    if you want to hear the ancient song of the rock pillar you’re standing on.

    In the song, it says, “My cache is at
    17 of 24, This rock will point to it’s retrieval.” (5 o’clock)

    To find the cache, paraglide to the rock
    pillar to the east of the one you’re on with Kass. Then face south use Magnesis
    to lift up the Treasure chest up from the water. In the treasure chest is a
    gold rupee.

    Quest Reward – 300 Rupees

    Lanayru Tower Region:

    Riverbed Reward

    Speak to Izra and accept the quest to
    begin. Near the water by the stable.

    Talk to the old man Rozel in Lurelin
    Village. He is usually over by the raft. He’ll tell you there there’s a sunken
    treasure in the “golden triangle.”

    Open your map. You should be able to see
    the triangle instantly. It’s marked by three rocks toward the south. You can
    either use the raft (cut the rope) with a Korok Leaf or simply swim (if you
    have the outfit/stamina) or “ice-block” your way over there (using
    Cryonis).

    In the middle of the triangle, you will see
    various sunken treasures. Create yourself a platform with Cryonis and move the
    chests over and open them all. You’ll get various gems. Go back to Rozel to
    close out the quest.

    Lake Tower Region:

    Hunt for the Giant Horse

    This side quest can be found in the Faron
    Grasslands. Just follow the path south from Lake Hylia and head west to
    discover a Mounted Archery Camp.

    Talk to Straia at the camp side and he’ll
    tell you about a rumored giant horse. Head to the Taobab Grasslands, northwest
    from here. You will soon come upon a group of regular sized horses and one notably
    bigger one. That’s your target and price.

    Sneak up, tame it (spam that L button) and
    you can bring it back to the camp as proof — and keep and register it
    afterwards. Make sure to have more then two rings of stamina before attempting
    this quest.

    Wasteland Tower Region

    Good Sized Horse

    The quest giver is near the Joloo Nah
    Shrine, go south down the pathand you’ll see him on the right side or the
    road.(Near a bridge covering the path on
    the map) This guy wants to buy a horse for 300 rupees. If you head to Dueling
    Peaks stables and register a horse, then head to Wasteland Stables to retrieve
    it and ride it to this guy, that will complete the quest. Note you may have to
    move boulders with stasis to get your horse to him.

    He will keep the horse forever so make sure
    you don’t sell him one you want to keep for yourself. You won’t get it back.

    The Forgotten Sword

    To start the Forgotten Sword side quest,
    you must first finish The Eighth Heroine side quest. After completing the said
    side quest, equip the Gerudo outfit then speak to Bozai again. He is now found
    under a canopy close to Gerudo Town’s main entrance. He will then ask you to
    take a photograph of a sword statue in Gerudo Highlands.

    This is my second attempt, they
    removed my first one. This guide is missing quite a few side quests, I’ve
    included some that I found, since this site seems to have lost interest in
    updating their own article. I’ll update as long as I can or before they remove
    it again.

    Hateno Tower Region:

    The Statue’s Bargain

    A Statue’s Bargain starts upon entering
    Hateno Village and encountering a very excited little boy.

    Upon talking to the boy, he tells you to
    follow him. The boy then leads you to a statue of what appears to be a demon.
    When first prayed to, the statue will scare you by taking either one of your
    heart containers or one of your stamina vessels and leaving you a measly 100
    rupees. When you confront the statue again, the statue promises to give back
    the heart container/stamina vessel for 120 rupees. The statue will defend
    itself by saying that you get to choose wether you get a heart container or a
    stamina vessel. Buying your heart/stamina back will end the quest.

    From here on out, you can use this statue
    to reallocate your orbs to grow hearts or stamina — for a price, of course.

    The Weapon Connoisseur

    Nebb is available running around
    the middle of Hateno Village roughly between noon and 7 pm. After you have
    started the quest, when you need to find him again, you can set this quest as
    the active one in the Adventure Log.

    Walkthrough

    Talk to Nebb to start the quest.

    Tip: If you have done the Sunshroom Sensing
    Side Quest and have Sensor+, you can talk to Symin at the Hateno Ancient Tech
    Lab and purchase equipment pictures for your compendium (at 100 rupees each,
    getting a random picture each time, can buy in bulk if desired) until you have
    a picture for your next objective. You can then set it as your Sensor+ target
    for help in finding one. If you’ve already taken a picture of it yourself, you
    can just use that instead of course and save money.

    Each of these weapons likely have multiple
    locations. The locations listed below are simply suggestions.

    Objective 1: Traveler’s Sword

    If you happen to have one already on you,
    you’re lucky, just show it to him. It doesn’t need to be equipped. Otherwise
    one can be found on the path just east of Inogo Bridge. (If using Sensor+, this
    is #204 in the Compendium.) He will give you a red rupee.

    Objective 2: Fire Rod

    A fire rod can be found on an enemy close

    is #343 in the Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for a purple rupee.

    Objective 5: Windcleaver

    Found on Yiga Blademasters. They’re
    available in various places but become more available after clearing the Yiga
    Clan Hideout. One can be found in the small forest northwest of the bottomless
    swamp. (If using Sensor+, this is #279 in the Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for
    a silver rupee.

    Objective 6: Ancient Battle Axe+

    This drops off Guardian Scout III, which
    can be found at many of the “Modest Test of Strength” shrines. As
    long as a blood moon has passed, you can revisit and kill the enemy again even
    if you’ve already beaten the shrine. (If using Sensor+, this is #274 in the
    Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for a silver rupee.

    Objective 7: Frostspear

    If you haven’t done it yet, you can get one
    at the shrine in the spring of wisdom (Jitan Sa’mi Shrine). You can also get it
    off a Stalnox in the Lake region. (If using Sensor+, this is #302 in the
    Compendium.) Show it to Nebb for a gold rupee.

    Objective 8: Ancient Short Sword

    After completing the Robbie’s Research
    sidequest, you can purchase one at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. Show it to Nebb
    for a diamond, and you’ll finally complete this quest.

    The Hero’s Cache

    To begin the side quest, talk to Kass on
    the tallest rock pillar in Kitano Bay.

    Answer “Yes, please” when he asks
    if you want to hear the ancient song of the rock pillar you’re standing on.

    In the song, it says, “My cache is at
    17 of 24, This rock will point to it’s retrieval.” (5 o’clock)

    To find the cache, paraglide to the rock
    pillar to the east of the one you’re on with Kass. Then face south use Magnesis
    to lift up the Treasure chest up from the water. In the treasure chest is a
    gold rupee.

    Quest Reward – 300 Rupees

    the triangle instantly. It’s marked by three rocks toward the south. You can
    either use the raft (cut the rope) with a Korok Leaf or simply swim (if you
    have the outfit/stamina) or “ice-block” your way over there (using
    Cryonis).

    In the middle of the triangle, you will see
    various sunken treasures. Create yourself a platform with Cryonis and move the
    chests over and open them all. You’ll get various gems. Go back to Rozel to
    close out the quest.

    tell you about a rumored giant horse. Head to the Taobab Grasslands, northwest
    from here. You will soon come upon a group of regular sized horses and one
    notably bigger one. That’s your target and price.

    Sneak up, tame it (spam that L button) and

    afterwards. Make sure to have more then two rings of stamina before attempting this
    quest.

    Peaks stables and register a horse, then head to Wasteland Stables to retrieve
    it and ride it to this guy, that will complete the quest. Note you may have to
    move boulders with stasis to get your horse to him.

    He will keep the horse forever so make sure
    you don’t sell him one you want to keep for yourself. You won’t get it back.

    The Forgotten Sword

    you must first finish The Eighth Heroine side quest. After completing the said

    In the song, it says, “My cache is at
    17 of 24, This rock will point to it’s retrieval.” (5 o’clock)

    To find the cache, paraglide to the rock
    pillar to the east of the one you’re on with Kass. Then face south use Magnesis

    gold rupee.

    Quest Reward – 300 Rupees

    Lanayru Tower Region:

    Riverbed Reward

    Speak to Izra and accept the quest to
    begin. Near the water by the stable.

    Walkthrough

    This will only take a moment. Lift the chest
    out of the water with Magnesis and open it for a Royal Broadsword. Talk to Izra
    to complete the quest.

    Faron Tower Region:

    Thunder Magnet

    Talk to Cima to begin the quest.

    Walkthrough

    Sunken Treasure

    Talk to the old man Rozel in Lurelin
    Village. He is usually over by the raft. He’ll tell you there there’s a sunken
    treasure in the “golden triangle.”

    Open your map. You should be able to see
    the triangle instantly. It’s marked by three rocks toward the south. You can
    either use the raft (cut the rope) with a Korok Leaf or simply swim (if you
    have the outfit/stamina) or “ice-block” your way over there (using
    Cryonis).

    In the middle of the triangle, you will see
    various sunken treasures. Create yourself a platform with Cryonis and move the
    chests over and open them all. You’ll get various gems. Go back to Rozel to
    close out the quest.

    Lake Tower Region:

    Grasslands. Just follow the path south from Lake Hylia and head west to
    discover a Mounted Archery Camp.

    Talk to Straia at the camp side and he’ll
    tell you about a rumored giant horse. Head to the Taobab Grasslands, northwest
    from here. You will soon come upon a group of regular sized horses and one
    notably bigger one. That’s your target and price.

    Sneak up, tame it (spam that L button) and
    you can bring it back to the camp as proof — and keep and register it
    afterwards. Make sure to have more then two rings of stamina before attempting this
    quest.

    Wasteland Tower Region

    Good Sized Horse

    The quest giver is near the Joloo Nah
    Shrine, go south down the pathand you’ll see him on the right side or the
    road.(Near a bridge covering the path on
    the map) This guy wants to buy a horse for 300 rupees. If you head to Dueling
    Peaks stables and register a horse, then head to Wasteland Stables to retrieve
    it and ride it to this guy, that will complete the quest. Note you may have to
    move boulders with stasis to get your horse to him.

    He will keep the horse forever so make sure
    you don’t sell him one you want to keep for yourself. You won’t get it back.

    The Forgotten Sword

    To start the Forgotten Sword side quest,
    you must first finish The Eighth Heroine side quest. After completing the said

    under a canopy close to Gerudo Town’s main entrance. He will then ask you to
    take a photograph of a sword statue in Gerudo Highlands.

    The particular sword is found at the top of
    Gerudo Summit. Take a picture of the sword then show it to Bozai and he will
    give you his pair of Snow Boots.

    that’s the easiest 100 Rupees you’ve ever made.

    Mountain’s Secret” Side Quest.

    About 1/3rd of the way between the Goron
    Hot Springs and Eldin Bridge, when you reach the lava falls, climb the mountain
    just to the south of the path.

    At the base of this short peak is a
    bombable wall, behind the cracked rocks is the Drillshaft laying on the ground.

    Take the Drillshaft back to Dugby to finish
    the Side Quest.

    that their daughter, Hunnie, is sick and will only eat ‘a particular cake’ and
    references monsters. If you’ve already
    spoken to Hunnie, she’s told you that she has a lot of energy because she’s
    just eaten Monster Cake.

    Misa’s Recipe Book in Slippery Falcon in
    Rito Village has the recipe for Nutcake which is: Tabantha Wheat, Goat Butter, Cane Sugar, and
    Acorn

    daughter with a Gold Rupee (300).

  • We appear to be having problems with comments on this article. Had a few email alerts regarding some very helpful comments from Extreme_ver1 but they do not appear to be working. We don’t remove comments here, positive or negative, as long as it’s not attacking others. I’ll post directly from his comment below

    • This is my third attempt, they
      removed my first couple of tries. This guide is missing quite a few side quests, I’ve
      included some that I found.

      Hateno Tower Region:

      The Statue’s Bargain

      A Statue’s Bargain starts upon entering
      Hateno Village and encountering a very excited little boy.

      Upon talking to the boy, he tells you to
      follow him. The boy then leads you to a statue of what appears to be a demon.
      When first prayed to, the statue will scare you by taking either one of your
      heart containers or one of your stamina vessels and leaving you a measly 100
      rupees. When you confront the statue again, the statue promises to give back
      the heart container/stamina vessel for 120 rupees. The statue will defend
      itself by saying that you get to choose wether you get a heart container or a
      stamina vessel. Buying your heart/stamina back will end the quest.

      From here on out, you can use this statue
      to reallocate your orbs to grow hearts or stamina — for a price, of course.

      The Weapon Connoisseur

      Nebb is available running around
      the middle of Hateno Village roughly between noon and 7 pm. After you have
      started the quest, when you need to find him again, you can set this quest as
      the active one in the Adventure Log.

      Walkthrough

      Talk to Nebb to start the quest.

      Tip: If you have done the Sunshroom Sensing
      Side Quest and have Sensor+, you can talk to Symin at the Hateno Ancient Tech
      Lab and purchase equipment pictures for your compendium (at 100 rupees each,
      getting a random picture each time, can buy in bulk if desired) until you have
      a picture for your next objective. You can then set it as your Sensor+ target
      for help in finding one. If you’ve already taken a picture of it yourself, you
      can just use that instead of course and save money.
