Lurelin Village location in Tears of the Kingdom

The sole objective of the “Ruffian-Infested Village” side adventure is to kill all monsters inside the Tears of the Kingdom village.


When you enter the village, you will see a red health bar on the top middle of the screen. The health bar represents how many monsters are out there and as you start killing a few of them, you will observe the red line start to shorten itself.

Keep in mind to fight enemies once at a time since if you die, you have to again start the entire quest. There are various monsters including Bokoblins, Boss Bokolin, and elemental Lizalfos.

Bokoblins and Boss Bokolin, fortunately, do not know how to swim. So, here is a neat tip. You can drown them by pushing them into the water with your Two-handed Weapons or Bomb Flowers.

Here are the locations of all of the monsters in Lurelin Village.

Right at the entrance
Upon arriving in the Lurelin village, you will see a huge building on the left side which is occupied by some of the enemies.

Head east of the bay
You have to go to the downside of the village where you will see a bay on the east side where some enemies are waiting.

Get to the Pirate Ship 
As you reached the bay, you need to go in the middle of it to see a pirate ship. Use your “ascend” skill to get on top of the ship. You will find Boss Bokoblin and other enemies. Clear the entire ship by killing all of them

Head to the Mayor’s house
To find the next mob, you need to make your way toward the northwest of the bay. Upon reaching there, you see some of the Lizalfos there. Clean this area too.

Jump into the well
To find the final mob, you need to reach north of Lurelin Village. The last mob is hiding in a Lurelin Village Well.

Glide down inside the well to find Bokoblin and a few enemies. Once you killed them, you will get Baked Palm Fruit and Fishing Harpoon.

As you have defeated all the monsters and enemies from Lurelin Village, you will go back to Bolson, so he can start reconstructing the Village as it will be the Lurelin Village Restoration Project side quest in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
