That’s not a lot of main quests for just a massive game.


Tout he is Jon


Where is Jon in zelda


You have to talk to Pikango to trigger a main quest. He is in kakariko village painting a picture. Once you talk to him, it’ll trigger a main quest.


So, the last quest you are asking about is a thing that helps you with the memories quest basically, go to the small goddes statue in kakariko village in front of it should be a man, just speak to him and you will start a main quest which when i found this i thought to be very weird seeing as to what he wants you to do (I found this after i beat the game so it didnt help me at all)


After beating game it is strange just takes u back to before Ganon


Not the true ending


How do you finish the destroy ganon quest because it always takes you back to the save befor battling ganon


That is the end of the quest, until a sequel story (in fall), you cannot save after the battle and the quest never registers as complete.

This is only 14 quests though. What about the 15th? There are 15 main story quests but I can’t find the final one


I counted 15.
