Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild Sheikah Slate Upgrade
In order to upgrade Sheikah Slate in Legend Of Zelda BoTW you are required to complete the Locked Mementos quest.
The Locked Mementos quest is given to by Impa in Kakariko Village. This quest will take you Hateno Village where you will find a research lab where you can upgrade your Sheikah Slate.
When the Locked Mementos quest is given to you the game does not detail the rewards or the upgrades for your Sheikah Slate.
At the end of this quest, you will unlock the photo mode, an album, and a compendium of things.
The road splits east of the east where you accept the quest. Fort Hateno can be reached by following this road. You’ll be able to ride past your enemies if you travel by horse and want to get there as fast as possible and without interruptions. Make sure your horse has enough stamina.
Once you have reached Fort Hateno, continue straight until you reach a fork. Hateno Village can be reached by taking the left path. In the future, you will have to face many enemies on your journey. To get to the village, just keep following the path.
Just go up the cliff and around the village to find the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab. Now enter the Lab and talk to the young girl named Purah and she will direct you to the back where the director is. Symin is the director and will show an interest in your Sheikah Slate and will request you to let him see the runes on it.
Once he looks at the Sheikah Slate he will note that it is missing the basic runes. However, you will start to notice that Symin does not seems to be the in charge of the Lab and it turns out that Purah is the director of the Lab. There will be a lot of information that Purah will disclose to you during your conversation with her.
It’s going to cost you something, but she’ll fix your Sheikah Slate. The ancient furnace in the Town has a blue flame that can be used to repair the Sheikah Slate. For the furnace in the lab to light up, you need this blue flame. Finding the blue flame and carrying it from lamp to lamp is all you need to do.
If you bump into a bush, it will give you a stick when you hit it, so be careful. You’ll return to the Lab pretty quickly after touching the lamp. After reaching the Lab, light your torch outside the furnace and you will be transported.
Get the Sheikah Slate repaired by talking to Purah in the Lab. Your Camera, Hyrule Compendium, and Album will be repaired and you’ll get the Sheikah Slate back.
