Someone Has Found All 900 Korok Seeds In Zelda

 

There is a reward for picking up every single Korok seed in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is...something.

Korok seeds are little items hidden all around Zelda’s map, and can be exchanged with the lovely Hestu for increased inventory space.

There are 900 of them in the game. xFateAwaitsx is the one who scooped them all up, and today shared the reward they received from Hestu for doing so. If you’re wondering what kind of timeframe is involved in doing this, know that it took them two hours just to go from 899-900.

And if you’re wondering what they got in return, well....

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.

Here’s what you get.

 

 

A piece of shit.

Enjoy.

I think that is really well done from Nintendo. I couldn't care less about achievements or trophies, especially all the stupid "find x items for nothing" collectables.



I wonder if he used the guide ... probably.

The guide points to all 900?!

Honestly that reward is a slap in the face to ppl who go out of their way to collect them all.

Apparently this isn't even needed.

i disagree.

If there were "only" 100 Korok seeds and you needed all of them to max out your inventory, it would be far worse for people who want to maximize utility (instead of just their completion percentage) because they'd have to literally use a guide to find all of them.

As it stands, you need to collect roughly 50% of all available to max out all of your inventory slots, maybe 10% (~100) to have a reasonably big inventory. (with 100 seeds you get like ... 8 extra weapon slots and 3 shield / bow slots each or something similar)

It's great design that there's so many of them that you're going to accidentally discover enough by simply roaming the open world, seeing how much the game revolves around finding your own 'path' throughout the open world, exploring undocumented areas of the map.


The fact that the reward for 900 seeds is a useless piece of non-equipment is actually a statement made by Nintendo: "You do not need to collect all of them. You're not meant to. There's nothing worthwhile you get for collecting all of them."



Well I have already given up on them anyway. I'm gonna collect if i stumble over them but I'm not going out of my way to collect them anymore.

How many Korok seeds do you need to max out weapon slots?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Hahaha... reminds me of the South Park Guitar Hero episode.

Well, actually there is something worthwile: the feeling of accomplishment. But you need no useless medal or internet brag statue for it.

The question is what reward you expect. For some it's totally sufficient to know you find all of them, others perhaps want a reward. The question is what happens to people emotionally when they get the "reward" for finding all 900 seeds.
