How to help Addison in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK)

Get to work!

You'll have many chances to build and and use your imagination in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. One fun side activity you can do that ties into this is helping Addison place signs for Hestu around Hyrule. He seems a bit hapless, but with your help, you'll get those signs up in no time. Here's how to do it.

When you first talk to Addison, he'll struggle for a bit with the poorly balanced sign. If you tell him to Try Letting Go without touching anything, the sign will fall, and Addison will go back to holding it up.

You should be able to find simple building materials at any location you find Addison. If you use the L trigger to activate the Ultrahand ability, you should be able to use the nearby materials to build a simple L shaped prop. Place the L shaped prop up against the sign post, then ask Addison to Try letting go.

After a short animation, Addison will thank you profusely and secure the sign so the prop is no longer needed. He'll even give you some rupees, food, and materials as thanks. For example, I received 20 Rupees, one Energizing Veggie Rice Balls, and one Puffshroom when I helped him in Mabe Prairie.
