Quest Giver Kass
Location Kitano Bay
Reward Gold Rupee

"The Hero's Cache" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Overview

In Kitano Bay, Link can encounter Kass playing his bandoleon on a stone pillar.[2] If Link has met him before, Kass will comment on how fortunate they are to have crossed paths again and asks if he can to see the ocean.[3] He explains that the strange pillar they are standing on is the subject of an "Ancient Song," and he and asks Link if he wants to hear it.[4]

When Link agrees to listen, Kass sings a song that recounts the words of an ancient hero.[5] The hero left a cache at "17 of 24", and the pillar points toward its location.[6] When he is done singing, Kass speculates that the cache could be referring to a stash of money,[7] which he believes is possible since it was left by the hero from 10,000 years ago.[8] He wishes Link luck in deciphering the riddle,[9] which begins the Side Quest.

At five in the evening, which is the seventeenth hour of the day, the shadow of the pillar will point towards a Treasure Chest in the water. Using the Magnesis Rune, Link can pull the Chest up. Inside is a Gold Rupee, obtaining which will end the Side Quest.[10]

Trivia
