Zelda Breath of the Wild Champions' Ballad - How to Start BOTW DLC Pack 2

Zelda Breath of the Wild Champions' Ballad - How to Start BOTW DLC Pack 2

This is our guide on how to get started with the Zelda Breath of the Wild Champions' Ballad DLC pack.

The Champions' Ballad DLC pack was the second expansion for Zelda Breath of the Wild, and takes place after the events of the main game. In this guide to the Zelda Breath of the Wild Champions' Ballad DLC, we'll be walking you through how to get started with the second DLC expansion for the game.

How to Start Zelda Breath of the Wild Champions' Ballad DLC 2

The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack 2 marks the second and final DLC update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. To initiate the Champions' Ballad quest, you need to have defeated all four Divine Beasts in the main game, but you don't have to have taken down Calamity Ganon himself. Refer to our guides on each Divine Beast just below, if you've still got them left to complete.

Once you've completed all four Divine Beasts, you'll hear Zelda call to Link, telling him to return to the Shrine of Resurrection on The Great Plateau, to the point at which you first got the Sheikah Slate. This marks the very beginning of the main Champions' Ballad DLC quest, but it it's far from the only activity you can take on in the new DLC Pack 2.

After you've activated the terminal where you were first given the Sheikah Slate, you'll be tasked with taking down four camps of monsters, in order to master a Divine Beast. However there's a catch to this, as although you're given the powerful One-Hit Obliterator weapon, Link's health is reduced to one quarter of a heart, meaning that you'll die if you take a single hit.

Just below, you'll find our comprehensive guides leading on from this point in The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack 2:

How to get the Master Cycle Zero Bike in Breath of the Wild
