The reward for collecting all Korok seeds in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is a shocking disappointment and they can't keep getting away with this!

The hunt for Korok seeds in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is afoot and players are eagerly lifting stones, following flowers and finding creative ways to help these little plant creatures to reach their friends.

In Breath of the Wild, finding all Korok seeds was more of a meme instead of a serious side quest because the reward was literally a useless piece of sh*t. But is it any different in Tears of the Kingdom?

The Reward For Collecting All Korok Seeds In Tears of the Kingdom

Since Tears of the Kingdom only came out almost two weeks ago, not many players managed to collect all Korok seeds until now. But Zelda YouTuber RetroArchive was one of the first to discover the secret. Now we finally know what Hestu will give us for collecting all of these damn little Koroks like a maniac.

Did you know that you can get a new design for your paraglider by scanning Link's new Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom amiibo figure on your Nintendo Switch?

If you believe it or not. After grinding for days and weeks, solving every little riddle, and undergoing one of the worst and most repetitive mental trips in gaming history, all that Hestu will give you in return is a useless golden piece of... poop.

This is not a joke... it was the same in Breath of the Wild and we can't believe that Nintendo has done it again. Sadly, we all know it and Nintendo knows it too... No matter how shameless this reward is, there will always be players that are crazy enough to do it.

How Many Korok Seeds Are There In Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

While in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players could collect 900 Korok seeds in total, we're all asking ourselves what the developers have cooked up for Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom... Well, good news! It's not 1800 Koroks, like many people feared before the game was released.

In Tears of the Kingdom, you can collect a total of 1000 Korok seeds, but will only have to solve 900 riddles. That is because 200 of the 1000, seeds are obtained as a pair for helping two Korok friends reunite.
