"EX Strange Mask Rumors" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1] It is exclusive to The Master Trials DLC Pack.


The Quest is obtained upon reaching Hyrule Kingdom and loading the overworld of Hyrule, 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 apparently in the Woodland Stable. In the book, Traysi discusses the Korok Mask and reports on a rumor that it is inhabited by a spirit that causes it to shake when it is worn and if friends are hidden nearby. The Mask is rumored to be in a Treasure Chest hidden a tree hollow in forest that causes people to become lost.[2] It is possible to activate the second stage of the Quest by reading Super Rumor Mill EX: Volume 1 without triggering any of the loading conditions for the Quest's activation. The Treasure Chest can be found in the Lost Woods inside the hollow of a tree south of a pair of Torches with a Torch Weapon leaning against them. Retrieving the Korok Mask from the Chest will complete the Quest.

  2. "Super Rumor Mill EX: Volume 1 [Read.] Traysi here! Awake or asleep, my quest for juicy rumors never rests! EVER. Doesn't everyone gossip in their sleep? Today I've got a hot rumor fresh from the mill that is...wait for it...an EXCLUSIVE! And that special topic is... the mysterious Korok Mask! They say if you pour enough love into an object, a spirit will inhabit it. Something that creepy's just gotta be true! And apparently, this Korok Mask really is inhabited by a spirit! If you wear it, it supposedly shakes and makes adorably weird noises every now and then. Maybe it does that to tell you when friends are nearby and you can't see them? Who knows! Some say the treasure chest containing this mask is hidden in a tree hollow in a forest that makes people lose their way. Hmm, sounds like a tough place to find something! Luckily, word has it there's a convenient trick for finding your way... Traysi's Recommendation: ★★★★★" — Super Rumor Mill V1 (Breath of the Wild)
