"Find the Fairy Fountain" is a Main Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Link can receive this Main Quest by restoring the Camera Rune to the Sheikah Slate. Pikango has heard of a Great Fairy Fountain near Kakariko Village that is beautiful and can bestow people with a mysterious power.[2] Through his research, he found a place that he believes to be suspicious.[3][4] However, he can not find the Fountain in the area,[5] and he has difficulty getting there.[6] If Link has spoken to him before, Pikango states that nothing is better than tracking down a perfect view and asks if he understands.[7] If Link has not spoken to him, Pikango expresses a desire to see a Picture of the Fountain.[8]

When Link agrees with Pikango's sentiment or offers to help him, he is relieved that someone else appreciates beauty.[9] He asks Link if he wants to come with to investigate the location,[10] telling him to follow along.[11] At this point, the "Find the Fairy Fountain" Main Quest activates.

Just past Ta'loh Naeg Shrine, Pikango becomes exhausted and can no longer continue.[12] He tells Link that the Great Fairy Fountain should be along the path going past from the Ancient Shrine.[13] Pikango decides that he should rest, sending Link ahead.[14][15] He reminds Link to take a Picture of the Great Fairy Fountain if he finds it.[16][17]

Once Link reaches Cotera's Great Fairy Fountain, he can take a Picture to show to Pikango. When Link returns, Pikango shares his hope to see the Fountain one day.[18] Pikango is shocked to hear that Link has found it and demands to see the Picture.[19] However, when he sees the Picture, Pikango is disappointed that it is not as sacred and elegant as he thought it would be.[20] He is still impressed that Link found it, though.[21]

While Pikango wants to give Link a reward, he does not have anything on him.[22] He offers to help Link find a place he has been looking for, since he has been all over Hyrule.[23] Link shows Pikango one of the Pictures that Zelda left on the Sheikah Slate's Album, which he recognizes as a gate at the base of Mount Lanayru, on the west side of the Naydra Snowfield.[24] He the asks Link if he was useful.[25] This completes the Main Quest.
