Where to find Korok seeds in BoTW
The preview footage we’ve seen has only shown two Korok. One was at a shrine near a graveyard. There were two statues with offering plates. One had an apple on it, the other didn’t. When Link dropped an apple on the second plate, a Korok appeared and gave him the seed.
The other one was easier to figure out, but required a certain amount of stamina to perform. Link found a yellow, glowing flower on a coast. When he approached it, the flower disappeared, then reappeared nearby. This happened several times, leading him across a wide river. Finally, the flower turned into a Korok and rewarded him.
The description you get when receiving the seed says they have a distinct smell. Their use isn’t apparent, but the text hints that you’d want to gather a bunch. There’s probably a way to trade them in or use them in a ritual, or something. There are rumors claiming there’s more than 900 of them in the game, so gathering a bunch shouldn’t be too problematic.
We’ll update this guide with more information once the game is released, on March 3rd. If you know of any other Korok seed locations, feel free to let us know in the comments.
