Every time you use Hestu to upgrade your space, it costs more seeds for the next upgrade.

I was keeping my upgrade levels equal across the board, just looking for the cheapest to upgrade, but I now think that all 3 scale at different paces.

So just to see if I'm hallucinating or not, how does Hestu scale for his upgrades?

Something like:

Swords

  • Lvl 1 - 1 seed needed
  • lvl 2 - 2
  • lvl 3 - 4
  • [...]

Hestu's Korok seed scaling differs depending on which item slot you want to improve. See this image.

Here's how it goes if the image isn't clear:

Weapons Bows Shields
1 1 1
2 2 2
3 3 3
5 5 4
8 8 5
12 12 10
17 17 10
25 25 10
35 10
45 10
55 15
15

All in all, you'll need 441 out of the 900 Korok Seeds to upgrade all of your stashes completely.

    I wish SE would allows some sort of table markup. There have been a few times where I would like to put my answer into a table.

  • @TimmyJim I know it's been over two years since your comment, but I've found this generator and code blocks to be an effective workaround (mea culpa if you use a screen reader) May 22, 2019 at 16:09
