Taobab Grassland

The Taobab Grassland is a location found in Breath of the Wild.

Taobab Grassland

Overview

The grassland is located at the northwest portion of the Lake Tower region, just south of Mount Hylia on the Great Plateau on the northern part of the Oseira Plains. The area has a few very tall trees with grass growing all around. The easiest way to access the grassland is by paragliding down southwest from the Owa Daim Shrine at the Great Plateau

As the grassland is in a warmer climate, it attracts different types of creatures and vegetation. There are some Sunshrooms and Zapshrooms growing along the sides of some of the trees. Additionally, there are some Cold Darners and Winterwing Butterflies flying around, as well as some Wasteland Coyotes that will appear.

To the west of the grassland, as the slopes become steep, leading up to the Stalry Plateau, there are some Rushrooms and Swift Violet flowers that are alongside the mountainside.

Hunt for the Giant Horse

After talking to Straia over at the Mounted Archery Camp, this will begin the Hunt for the Giant Horse quest. The Giant Horse can be found alongside a number of smaller Horses in the area. In order to mount the horse, it is recommended that Link have a stealth upgrade to sneak up on the horse. Alternatively, Link can jump down and paraglide from a tree, landing right on the horse. As the horse is much larger and more powerful, it will require more than two full wheels of stamina to soothe the horse. If Link does not have enough Stamina Vessel upgrades, he'll need to use meals or elixirs that give a Stamina boost.

High-Tier Horses

The Grassland, alongside Upland Lindor, is one of the locations where some of the best horses in the game can be found. These horses commonly have solid dark colors, not lighter than light brown. It has considerably more horses than Upland Lindor, but at a higher risk.

Horses with 5★ Stamina, Strength or Speed can be found there, but some special considerations must be taken:

  • These horses can be registered at the Highland Stable, which entails going south through the Oseira Plains, which has two Lynels, and then going east through the Darybon Plains, which have a large group of horse-riding Bokoblins. As such, it's important to not engage any enemies in combat en-route to the Stable.
  • 5★ Stamina and 5★ Strength horses have the same amount of spurs (5).
  • 5★ Speed horses have very low strength (2★), so they can be killed easily. Also, they only have 3 spurs, so they share that with mid-tier horses.
  • Attempting to bring horses to the stable at night poses a higher risk due to the presence of Electric Keese and Stalkoblins.
