So you’ve defeated Ganon and saved Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But did you know that the adventure doesn’t end there? To truly complete the game and uncover all of its secrets, you’ll need to embark on the post-game content journey. Join us as we explore the challenges and quests that await you in this captivating world.
Aim for a 100% Completion Rate
After vanquishing Calamity Ganon, you’ll notice a completion rate indicator at the bottom-left corner of the map. Achieving a 100% completion rate requires you to discover all the Koroks, locate every shrine, and unveil the names of all the areas on the map. Let’s dive deeper into these challenges!
Find all Koroks
Prepare yourself for a daunting task as there are a whopping 900 Koroks to find! These mischievous spirits, recognizable by the leaves on their faces, will put your puzzle-solving skills to the test. Each Korok you discover rewards you with a Korok Seed, which you can exchange with the friendly Hestu to expand your inventory slots for weapons, shields, and bows.
Locate all Shrines
Explore the vast land of Hyrule and seek out the 120 hidden Shrines. Completing their challenges will earn you Spirit Orbs, which you can use to increase Link’s maximum hearts and stamina. Remember, once you’ve discovered a shrine, you can fast travel to it anytime, saving you from exhausting climbs or swimming long distances.
Display all Location Names on the Map
As you traverse Hyrule, activating the Sheikah towers only reveals the map itself, not the names of the areas. To display the names of the locations, you’ll need to visit each area. Keep exploring, and soon enough, the map will be adorned with the fascinating names of the world you’ve come to love.
Complete the Hyrule Compendium
Become a true scholar of Hyrule by completing the Hyrule Compendium, an extensive encyclopedia featuring monsters, creatures, materials, and treasure. This invaluable resource provides detailed descriptions and common locations for each entry. Upgrade your Sheikah Sensor to the enhanced Sheikah Sensor+, a handy tool that helps you locate registered entries across the realm.
Pictures are available to purchase at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab
If capturing pictures for the compendium feels tedious, don’t worry! Symin at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab has got you covered. After completing the Sunshroom Sensing side quest, you can purchase pictures from him for a mere 100 Rupees each. And once you’ve defeated Calamity Ganon, Symin will even offer elite enemy pictures for 500 Rupees each.
Collect and Upgrade All Armor
Armor plays a crucial role in various situations throughout your journey. Find unique sets that provide Link with immunity to fire, freezing, warmth, camouflage, and other useful buffs. Wear three pieces of upgraded armor from a set, and unlock special bonuses. To upgrade armor, seek out Fairy Fountains or discover all the Fairy Fountains to maximize their potential.
Defeat All Mini Bosses
Prove your mettle by conquering all the challenging mini bosses. This includes the formidable Hinox, menacing Talus, and fearsome Molduga. For successfully defeating these formidable foes, Kilton will award you with a well-deserved Medal of Honor.
Buy the DLC / Expansion Pass
Expand your adventure even further by purchasing the DLC or Expansion Pass. Unlock additional quests, shrines, and armor sets to deepen your experience in the world of Hyrule. If you’re craving more adventures, investing in both DLCs is definitely worth it!
Is There a New Game Plus?
While the post-game content in Breath of the Wild offers hours of thrilling quests, unfortunately, there is no option for creating a New Game Plus. You can only have one save file per profile. However, in Master Mode, you can have separate save files, allowing you to continue playing on Normal Mode if you’ve already started your journey in Master Mode.

In addition to the post-game content, there are numerous guides available to assist you throughout your journey. From combat tips to cooking recipes, horse taming to treasure hunting, these guides will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in this enchanting world.
