Feature(s)Tracking Link's journey

Hero's Path Mode is a mode in Breath of the Wild introduced as part of The Master Trials DLC pack.[1]


Hero's Path Mode tracks every step Link has taken during the last 200 hours.[2] This path appears on the Map as a green line that follows Link's steps. The process can be sped up, paused, and skipped.

Upon obtaining The Master Trials and opening the Sheikah Slate's Map, a notice will appear informing Link that Hero's Path Mode has been unlocked.[1]
