"Divine Beast Vah Medoh"

"Face the Frost Talus" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


After Link has calmed Divine Beast Vah Medoh, he can speak to Gesane, a Rito who guards the entrance to Rito Village. He shares with Link that, while he was out earlier, he saw a Frost Talus.[2] When Link inquires more, Gesane explains it is a monster made out of enchanted ice,[3] and the one he saw was "incredibly terrifying."[4]

The Frost Talus was located in Coldsnap Hollow, though Gesane fled before he could be sure.[5] Even though it was big, he believes a Champion could easily take it down.[6] Once he is done speaking, the Side Quest begins.

Once Link has defeated the Frost Talus, he can return to Gesane to share the news. He is shocked to hear that Link was capable of doing so, as he is a Hylian.[7] Despite this, he is relieved, as the Frost Talus could have been dangerous if it had made its way to Rito Village.[8] As a reward, he gives Link a Silver Rupee.[9] This completes the Side Quest.
