The Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild has a bunch of side quests for you to take part in. Some are easy to find, while others are hidden throughout the vast world. Check out this Zelda Breath Of The Wild Side Quest Guide for help finding and completing all of them!
Breath Of The Wild West Necluda Side Quests
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.
The lady watching the Plum field doesn’t leave until 5 PM FYI. We also have a video if you need help finding them.
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.
We have a Home Upgrade Guide here if you want to know what all the Upgrades do.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
You get a Armoranth in exchange.
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.
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.
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.
Mei can be found way to the South of Hyule, in Lake Hylia. It’s the area South of the Great Plateau Tower, just East of where you start the game. She’s on a small island East of the Ya Naga Shrine. You get Staminoka Bass x5.
Breath Of The Wild Eldin Side Quests
You will have to collect 10 Fireproof lizards for the human in the area. He will then give you some Fireproof armor to make traveling in this area much easier. The lizards can be found on the rocks in the area, shoot them or use stealth armor to make this easier.
Breath Of The Wild Akkala Side Quests
Talk to the guard there and he will mention some guy pushing a cart late at night. You can find him at Skull Lake to the north west, on the left eye at night. He says something about opening a monster store and that he will see you again in a village at night. When I find him again I will update the guide with where he is.
Breath Of The Wild Korok Village Side Quests
Breath Of The Wild Gerudo Desert Side Quests
This side quest can be found at Gerudo Canyon Stable. Speak with Sesami standing next to the cooking fire. He will ask you to find four of his friends. Head to the objective marker on the map and you’ll find the first of his friends behind poked by a en enemy on the edge of the wood structure. Clear the enemy and then speak with them to have them return home. The rest of his allies are in the general area but not marked on the map.
They are all on the wooden walkways that litter the cliffside in this area. Check below for exact locations.
You get 300 Rupees for completing the quest.
You get 50 Rupees for completing the quest.
This quest can be found at the Kara Kara Bazaar, it’s along the main path that leads to Gerudo Town. Speak to Guy, he’s sitting atop a rock overlooking the oasis. He asks for a cooling elixir. Easy enough to make. Mix any insect that reads cooling in the description with a monster part.
You get 50 Rupees for completing the quest.
Speak with Isha outside of the accessory shop in Gerudo Town. She tells you that she’s run out of Flint and would like somebody to deliver 10 Flint to her.
Head there and make sure you take a picture, just getting there isn’t enough. Return to him with your female clothes on and talk to him for Sand Boots and to complete the quest.
You need to tell the woman at the door the password. The password is GSC diamond, it can be found at the bar in Gerudo Town. Listen through the window in the building on the opposite side of the Bar and some women will talk about it.
After she goes home you can return for 100 Rupees.
Breath Of The Wild Lurelin Village Side Quests
Go there and clear out the little water fork full of enemies. You will know if they are all dead because you can open the chest.
You will need to give some Nightshade to a guy who is trying to get with a Gerudo chick. He is to scared so you have to bring it over to her yourself. I had over 50 so Nightshade isn’t that hard to find but if you don’t have any there is some around the Fairy Fountain near Kakariko.
