BOTW Side Quest List: Every Breath Of The Wild Side Quest (1)

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild offers players a large number of optional activities, including 76 side quests that can be found and completed all over Hyrule. Players will need to talk to NPCs to obtain the missions which could take them across the map to complete. Each mission will require a different set of tasks and have varying rewards, some of which are very valuable and can make Breath of the Wildeasier or more fun.

While traversing Hyrule and completing main missions, players will come across a variety of NPC characters. Speaking to all of them can be very time-consuming. Luckily, the ones that have quests to offer will be indicated by a hovering piece of dialogue that has a red exclamation point next to it. These NPCs will give Link either side quests, shrine quests, or DLC missions if players have the DLC unlocked.
