The Korok Mask is a piece of new armor included in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Master Trials DLC in the “EX Strange Mask Rumors” side quest. When worn, this mask acts like your sheiklah slate does for shrines, but for koroks. Which is kind of amazing, frankly, because there’s a lot (900) of them, and this mask makes them easier to find.
How to find the Korok Mask in the Lost Woods
To quickest to get to the Lost Woods is from Woodland Tower. Of course, once you get to the top of Woodland Tower, you realize that there is a giant stone skull obscuring the top of the tower, making it impossible to glide into the woods from there.
To get there, go on the beaten path toward the woods until you reach this cliff, and then head to the Lost Woods in the distance.
Enter the Lost Woods as you normally would, and follow the flames until you see two flames on pillars next to each other. Pick up the torch sitting next to one of the pillars, and light it.
Stand still and watch how the wind blows the flame on your torch. That will tell you which direction to go. If you want to make it even easier, just watch the video above. Either way, you need to head west and then north.
As with all of the DLC items we’ve seen thus far, the Korok Mask is in a treasure chest marked with an “EX.” This one just happens to be hiding inside of a grotesque tree.

How to use the Korok Mask
Equip it, and just as the description says, it’ll begin to shake when you’re near a korok. The pinwheel will also rotate, and the mask will give off (harmless, but pretty) sparks. You can see what it looks like in the video above.
