Zelda’s Horned Statue
As what may be Zelda’s strangest NPC since Tingle, the Granter of Boons is Link’s one-stop shop to shuffle around Heart Containers and Stamina Vessels. It’s cheap, fast, and unbelievably difficult to find. Minor location and side quest spoilers ahead.
Where is the Granter of Boons?
Upon completing the tutorial, leap off the Great Plateau and follow the optional narrative flag “Seek Out Impa.” After finding Kakariko Village, head southwest, and you should eventually be able to spot a Sheikah Tower in the distance. From the tower, head a few more clicks east, and Link will eventually stumble upon Hateno Village. As one of the largest merchant hubs in the game, Hateno Village is home to the Kochi Dye Shop, critical upgrades for your Shiekah Slate, and even a residence Link can purchase for himself. In fact, Link’s house is exactly where we want to go to find the Granter of Boons.
Walk across a small bridge near the entrance of Hateno Village, just past the town’s shrine. This will lead you to the purchasable property. The Granter of Boons is located underneath the bridge connecting these two spots. We lit a fire next to him in the screenshot below.
After a quick chat with the statue, the Granter of Boons is available for all your re-specing needs.
The Statue’s Bargain
The process of re-specing is rather clunky. Players are expected to “sell” either a Heart Container or a Stamina Vessel for 100 rupees. Speaking to this statue once more offers the ability to buy one or the other for 120 rupees. In effect, Link is able to shuffle around his stats at 20 rupees per shift. It’s a lengthy, ugly process, but it’s a necessary one.
At the very least, the Granter of Boons is one of BotW’s most creative NPCs.
