Breathtaking Beauty Restored: A Guide to the Laurel Village


The majestic world of Laurel Village: Tears of the Kingdom offers countless adventures, from thrilling battles to intricate puzzles. But nestled along the tropical coast lies Laurel Village, a place that needs your help to regain its former glory. The Laurel Village Restoration Project is a rewarding side adventure that allows you to breathe new life into this charming community.

This guide delves into everything you need to know about the restoration project, answering the most common questions players have been searching for online.

Restoring Paradise: Unlocking the Project

Before you can roll up your sleeves and get to work, there’s a prerequisite to tackle. Laurel Village has unfortunately been overrun by ruffians, making it unsafe for its residents. To initiate the restoration project, you must first complete the “Ruffian-Infested Village” side quest. This straightforward quest involves clearing out the monster menace and restoring peace to the area.

Once the village is secure, seek out Bolson, a determined construction worker eager to see Lurelin Village flourish again. He’ll be the one to kickstart the “Lurelin Village Restoration Project” and enlist your help in rebuilding various structures.

Rebuilding Lurelin Village: A Step-by-Step Guide

The restoration project unfolds in several stages, each focusing on a specific aspect of the village. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to do to complete each stage:

Stage 1: Restoring the Inn

  • The Task: Bolson needs your help in clearing out the wreckage inside the distinctive pirate-ship-shaped building that serves as the village inn.
  • Tools of the Trade: This is where Link’s trusty Sheikah Slate comes in handy. Utilize the magnetic power of the Sheikah Slate to manipulate and remove unwanted junk inside the building.
  • Pro Tip: Don’t waste time hauling away each piece individually. Use the magnetic power to combine multiple pieces of junk and carry them away all at once. This will save you valuable time and effort.
  • Reward: Once the inn is cleared, Bolson will get to work on restoring it. The innkeeper will then return to Laurel Village, offering his gratitude and a reward of five Volt Fruit. Additionally, you’ll gain the ability to use the inn’s services for free – a well-deserved perk after your hard work.

Stage 2: Rebuilding the Shop

  • The Task: The local shop in Lurelin Village is in shambles, and Bolson needs your help to clear the debris blocking the entrance.
  • Tools of the Trade: This stage is all about brute force. Equip yourself with a sturdy weapon (a basic axe will suffice) and smash through the crates and boxes hindering access to the shop.
  • Pro Tip: Be mindful of your weapon’s durability. While a powerful weapon might seem tempting, it can quickly break. Opt for a more durable option to avoid wasting valuable resources.
  • Reward: With the entrance cleared, the shop can reopen its doors, offering you a convenient place to buy supplies and restock your inventory.

Stage 3: Rebuilding the Treasure Room

  • The Task: Lurelin Village boasts a hidden treasure room, but accessing it requires some effort. Bolson tasks you with finding specific materials to complete the reconstruction.
    • 20 Hylian Rice: This staple crop can be found growing in various locations across Hyrule. Keep an eye out for rice paddies, particularly near villages and settlements.
    • 15 Logs (not Palm Logs): While palm trees are abundant in Lurelin Village, they’re not what Bolson needs. Head to the Civil Shrine located northwest of the village. Here, you’ll find suitable trees to collect the required logs. Don’t worry about carrying them back one by one; you can leave gathered logs near Bolson, and he’ll add them to the total count.
  • Tools of the Trade: This stage requires a bit of exploration and resource gathering. Utilize your map to locate rice paddies and equip your weapon to chop down the necessary logs.
  • Pro Tip: While exploring for Hylian Rice, consider talking to the villagers. Some may offer helpful hints or even sell you the rice directly, saving you time on your search.
  • Reward: Once you’ve delivered all the materials, Bolson will complete the treasure room. This exciting addition allows you to participate in a daily mini-game. By dropping a specific item (the type of item may change) into a designated slot, you have a chance to win valuable treasure, including rare weapons and armour.
