  • Head to the Woodland Stable in Eldin, located along the main road just northeast of Lookout Landing (map coordinates: 1060, 1125, 0024).
  • From the Woodland Stable, look for a colorful hot air balloon across Pico Pond – at the mouth of the Pico Pond cave.
  • Make your way toward the hot air balloon, where you’ll find Kilton, the Monster parts vendor from Breath of the Wild.
  • Start talking with Kilton, and his brother, Koltin, will emerge from the nearby cave, offering you the quest “The Hunt for Bubbul Gems.”

Once you have collected Bubbul Gem, give it to Koltin to complete the quest and receive your Bokoblin Mask!
