Zelda Breath of the Wild guide: How to find the Travel Medallion in the Master Trials DLC – Polygon

The Master Trials DLC brings the Travel Medallion and its associated “EX Teleportation Rumors!” side quest into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Travel Medallion lets you create an ad hock fast travel location wherever you’re standing. You can leave, then come right back without needing to find a nearby shrine or tower.

You can only have one Travel Medallion fast travel location at a time, so you’ll have to be a little careful about how you use it. Put differently, creating a second point will erase the first one.

The EX Teleportation Rumors! side quest

When you boot up Breath of the Wild after installing The Master Trials DLC, you’ll receive the EX Teleportation Rumors!” side quest. Its text says:

Rumor has it there’s a tool that allows you to instantly travel to wherever you’ve placed it.

Apparently South Akkala Stable has a copy of Super Rumor Mill EX, which details some rumors about this rare item…

Shockingly, the first thing you need to do is travel to South Akkala Stable.

How to find the Travel Medallion: South Akkala Stable


Inside South Akkala Stable, you’ll find the Super Rumor Mill EX book

Travel to South Akkala Stable, in northeastern Hyrule. The closest warp point is Ze Kasho shrine. Enter the stable, and look for a book on a table. Read it, and you’ll find a new waypoint in the EX Teleportation Rumors! side quest. The quest’s text then changes to:

You read Super Rumor Mill EX: Volume 2! According to this special issue, there are rumors of an item that lets you instantly travel to a location of your choosing.

The treasure chest containing this item is supposedly located in northeast Akkala, hidden beneath a labyrinth.

If you believe the rumors, try to find the labyrinth and locate the treasure chest!


Tu Ka’loh shrine on Lomei Labyrinth Island

The text refers to Lomei Labyrinth Island, an island off the coast at the far northeast of Hyrule. Beyond The Master Trials, both the Trail of the Labyrinth shrine quest and Tu Ka’loh shrine (the closest warp point) appear there.

If you haven’t completed the Trail of the Labyrinth shrine quest and Tu Ka’loh shrine, check out our guides, which will help you navigate the maze.

The path ahead of you is filled with Guardians. Since you’re in the area, make the trip to the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab to purchase the Ancient Armor, which provides damage reduction against Breath of the Wild’s mechanical foes. Of course, if you already have it, equip and consider upgrading it. And while you’re there, it’s a good idea to buy some Ancient Arrows, which kill guardians with one headshot eyeshot.

Just in front of Tu Ka’loh shrine, you’ll see an updraft streaming up from a hole in the ground. Jump down into it.

After you land, directly in front if you on a little podium, you’ll find a treasure chest with the Diamond Circlet, which decreases damage from Guardians. It’s a fine thing to have here, considering that you’re surrounded by Guardians, and as soon as you open the chest, four of them will take aim at you.

Equip the Ancient Armor, Guardian weapons or the Master Sword (check out our Master Sword guide if you don’t have it yet), the Hylian Shield (it deflects Guardian lasers, and you can get it easily with our Hylian Shield guide) and any Ancient Arrows you have in your inventory to fight the mechanized beasts.

You don’t have to fight them all, but you can’t avoid some of them. Use the room’s pillars and Guardians as cover to block the Guardians’ lasers. But beware: some deactivated Guardians aren’t actually deactivated, and they may spring to life when you approach.

We fought all of the Guardians and looted the deactivated ones, because this room is a cornucopia of Ancient Gears, Ancient Springs, Ancient Screws and Ancient Shafts — and you can never have too many of those.

The treasure chest (marked with an “EX”) containing the Travel Medallion is on the side of the room opposite the updraft, sitting against the wall. Opening it will complete the “EX Teleportation Rumors!” side quest.
