Once Hestu is unlocked as a character after completing the Scenario, “Freeing Korok Forest”, Link will be able to complete side quests that will be able to give everyone extra inventory, just like in Breath of the Wild. These side quests, found under the Battle Support tab in the Quest search bar, have Hestu’s Maracas as their icons.

Korok Seeds are given by Koroks when they are found throughout Hyrule. [3] They possess a distinct smell. [1] When Link receives his first Seed, he is asked to return it to the Korok Hestu. [4] Korok Seeds are actually the beads used in Hestu’s Maracas. When first found, Hestu asks Link to retrieve his Maracas from a group of Bokoblins nearby. After Link returns them, Hestu realizes the Seeds were taken by the other Koroks as part of a prank. [5] [6]

There is a total of 175 Korok Seeds found in the game, and are divided as such:

Korok Seeds can be obtained in Chapter Quests and certain Challenge Quests by uncovering hidden Koroks, and can additionally be received as rewards for completing Challenge Quests centered around Hestu’s involvement. Once a Warrior locates a Korok, it will give them a Korok Seed. Koroks who Warriors find will remain out in the open as a way to help players keep track which Koroks they have found.

Other Appearances

In exchange for Korok Seeds, Hestu will add one slot to Link’s Weapon, Bow, or Shield stashes. [7] Link can fully upgrade his inventory with only 441 Korok Seeds. If all 900 Seeds are returned to Hestu, he will reward Link with a “gift of friendship.” [8] [9]

After completing the “A Most Peculiar Korok” Side Quest, Korok Seeds can be seen on the Battle Info screen of a Scenario that has them, with collected Korok Seeds being colored in white and uncollected Korok Seeds being left in a very dull dark gray.

In addition to our Interactive Map, we will also divide up the Korok Seeds by region. Each page below has a full listing of all the Korok Seeds within its region, along with pictures, a description, and a video collecting all the seeds. If for whatever reason you prefer this method, or are struggling to get that last seed in spite of the map’s assistance, we’ve still got you covered. Each region will be added as it is completed.

Here at Zelda Dungeon we offer two methods to help you collect all the Korok Seeds in the world.

The upgrade cost for each category increases with each upgrade. Only 441 seeds are required to purchase all the weapon slots you can purchase. (However there is a special reward for those intrepid enough to get all 900!) For the price per slot for each of the categories, see the chart below:

To quickly navigate, you can click any of the links below to scroll the map to the Tower of your choice.

Using the map allows you to collect the seeds in any order you like, wherever you happen to be in the world at any given time, as many as you feel like getting at that moment. In addition, it also shows the location of all Shrines, Shrine Quests, Side Quests, and many other useful bits of information, that you can toggle on or off using the layers menu, and you can also mark those as completed to help keep track of them as well.

Due to the “go anywhere you want, in any order you want, in any way you want” nature of Breath of the Wild, our Interactive Map is our recommended method to use for collecting Korok Seeds. Our map shows the locations of all 900 Korok Seeds, with pictures and instructions on how to find them. Race seeds also indicate the beginning and end of the race. The map also has a checklist feature, which allows you to check off and hide the Korok Seeds that you have already collected.

To unlock the ability to turn in Korok Seeds and start purchasing the Weapon Slot upgrades mentioned above, first complete The Priceless Maracas Side Quest on the road to Kakariko Village. After completing this short quest, Hestu will allow you to purchase two slots before he moves to a new location. He can then be found at either the Woodland, Wetland, or Riverside Stables. After the purchase of five more slots, he will move to his final location in the Korok Forest.
