Reward Star Fragment

"Balloon Flight" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


At Woodland Stable, Link can encounter Shamae talking about Balloons to herself.[2] Upon speaking to her, she shares her belief people used to live in the sky, which she sometimes sees in her dreams.[3] Shamae tells Link that she would like to see balloons floating in the sky,[4] promising a treasure for the sky if he helps her.[5] When Link agrees, Shamae tells him to put Balloons on a Barrel to make it float.[6]

Link can brings Shamae Octo Balloons, at which point she tells him to tie some to the barrel next to her.[7] At least two Octo Balloons are needed in order for the Barrel to start floating. Once this is done, Shamae becomes overjoyed.[8] Shamae tells Link that her dream is to float up to the land in the sky with a balloon, and then to ride a big bird.[9] Afterwards, she rewards Link with a Star Fragment.[10]


Stage Description

Complete With the ingenious use of Octo balloons, you kept your promise to Shamae.

As thanks, she gave you a star fragment.
