"EX Royal Guard Rumors" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1] It is exclusive to The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack.

Overview

The Side Quest is obtained upon reaching leaving the Great Plateau and loading the overworld of Hyrule Kingdom, which can be done by Traveling, reloading a save file, dying, or leaving an Ancient Shrine. When the Quest is activated, Link will be tasked with finding a copy of Super Rumor Mill EX, which is located in the Riverside Stable.[2][note 1]

The Super Rumor Mill V4 is found on a table inside Riverside Stable. In the book, Traysi discusses the Royal Guards and hearsay that their Armor can still be found in Hyrule Castle.[3] According to a former maid, the equipment can be found in the Dining Hall, the Guards' Chamber, and the second floor.[4]

The Treasure Chest containing the Royal Guard Cap is on the second floor of the Sanctum, in the room directly above where Princess Zelda has sealed Calamity Ganon, in front of a statue of a knight. The Royal Guard Uniform can be found in a Treasure Chest behind a Royal Guard's Sword in a small chamber hidden behind a Cracked Tile west of the Dining Hall. The Treasure Chest containing the Royal Guard Boots is in the Guards' Chamber on a wooden platform in between two other wooden platforms with Bomb Barrels. The Side Quest is completed once all three pieces of the Royal Guard Set have been obtained.[5]
