Of all the quests contained within The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, finding all 900 Korok seeds is perhaps the most demanding, simply because there are so many hidden away in the massive game world. These seeds can be exchanged with the character Hestu to expand your inventory, but it’s not a requirement to find every single one – your inventory slots can be maxed out way before this point.

Nonetheless, Reddit user xFateAwaitsx has created a guide which shows the location of every single Korok seed, which makes the process a little easier for everyone else. He has also discovered the reward you receive for completing this Herculean and ultimately pointless task – and to be brutally honest, it’s a bit disappointing.

Handing over the 900th seed to Hestu results in Link being given a turd-shaped object with the following description:

A gift of friendship given to you by Hestu. It smells pretty bad.

A turd-shaped object which smells bad certainly seems like an odd choice for a reward after all those hours of searching. Given the nature of this dubious gift, you could claim that Nintendo is giving its opinion on the time-consuming item collection quests which are so prevalent in open-world games – they’re crap.
