Korok Seeds are one of the optional collectibles in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that can help you out by increasing your inventory space. Here is how you can get Korok Seeds in the game.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has some new mechanics and skills for the player to play around with. Along with the new mechanics, the game features a whole new area to explore along with the re-design version of the old map.

But not everything needs to be changed just because it is a sequel to the previous game. So, naturally, a few of the old mechanics retain their uses in this game too. And one of these mechanics is the Korok seeds. Korok seeds are used to expand the inventory of players. There are a few ways to get them in the game. Here is how you can find Korok Seeds in Tears of the Kingdom.

There are actually over 900 Korok Seeds to find in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Since the weapon break mechanic makes a return in this game, you will need inventory space to hold more weapons, especially if you are fighting a hard boss. In Tears of the Kingdom, you have different inventories for 1 or 2-handed weapons, Shields, and Bows. Each of these inventories can be upgraded using Korok seeds.

If anything in the environment seems out of place to you and can be moved to make it better, chances are you will find a Korok Seed by doing it. It is not possible to list all 900 seeds, but there are a few everyday tasks you can find which will reward you with these seeds. Also, it is important to mention; you don’t need to collect all the Korok seeds to complete the game. If you feel like your inventory is big enough to complete the game, you can stop collecting them.

These are the tasks to find Korok Seeds in Tears of the Kingdom:

  • Do Balloon Puzzle
  • Do Block Puzzle
  • By catching Dandelion
  • By Lifting a rock
  • By diving and landing in a lily pad circle
  • Completing the rock formation by getting the missing rock
  • By catching sparks moving through the ground
  • By offering apples to the goddess statue rows
  • By burning piles of leafs
  • By doing the Pinwheel archery challenge
  • By repairing shelter
  • By completing pull the chain puzzle after fusing with ultrahand
  • By reuniting Korok’s friends
  • By doing tree stump races

Tracking 900 different korok seeds is undoubtedly no easy task. But these are the tasks that are involved with finding a korok seed in Tears of the Kingdom. So if you see any of these while moving through the game, make sure to do them to gain a seed from the little Koroks.
