"A Freezing Rod" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


In the Korok Forest, Link can encounter the Korok Kula. Kula welcomes him to the forest,[2] remarking that he is much cooler than he thought.[3] He reveals that he prepared a trial for Link to ensure that he is up to his task as a hero.[4] He asks Link if he is willing to accept his trial.[5]

If Link accepts Kula's trial, Kula requests that he show him a Rod with the power of Ice.[6] He goes on to explain that these Rod can freeze enemies, and they are commonly wielded by Ice Wizzrobes.[7] Kula says that Link would be stronger and cooler if he had one.[8]

Link can return to Kula once he obtains an Ice Rod.[9] If Link does not have the Rod equipped, Kula tells him to do so.[10] Kula enjoys how sparkly the Ice Rod is.[11] He thanks Link, giving him a Silver Rupee as a reward.[12]

Kula will also accept a Blizzard Rod for this Side Quest.[13] As a reward, Kula will give Link a Gold Rupee.


Stage Description
1 Kula asked you to show him a "rod with the power of ice." Ice Wizzrobes are known to carry them.
Complete You showed Kula a rod that harnesses the power of ice!

The magical rod you now have can send blasts of ice at monsters to freeze them solid. It should be very handy in battle.
