Second Wind Wiki

"Labours of the Hero" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild: Second Wind.


This quest is unlocked once Link leaves Hyrule Castle after obtaining the Hylian Shield. After being given the quest by Monk Ruya Nala, Link is tasked to travel near Champion's Gate, which is to the east of the Gerudo Desert in the Gerudo Highlands region. When Link reaches the location marked on the map, a shrine emerges from the ground. This is the Ruya Nala Shrine.

Once Link enters the shrine and reaches the main chamber, the words "The Ancient Trials" appear, signalling to Link the nature of this shrine. After speaking to Monk Ruya Nala, Link is given the objective to defeat twelve bosses across Hyrule. Hints for the location for these bosses are given in the statues throughout the main chamber.
