The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild has been out for a couple of days and players have already discovered one iconic weapon int the game. The Master Sword, one of the strongest and hardest to obtain a weapon, can be easily acquired by following this Zelda Breath of the Wild guide.
Breath of the Wild revealed that Link lost his Master Sword after failing to defeat Calamity Ganon. 100 years between their battle and Link’s re-awakening, the sword disappeared.
According to Eurogamer, players can discover the Master Sword at the center of the Great Hyrule Forest. They can locate the said forest to the north of the Hyrule Castle but they have to first traverse the Lost Woods.
Players can go directly to the Master Sword upon starting the game but cannot pull it out yet. The game requires Link to have at least 13 hearts to survive pulling out the sword from its resting place.
Link starts off with three hearts which gradually increase by completing the multitude of Shrines to earn Spirit Orbs. Players can then use the Spirit Orbs in order to gain addition Heart Containers for the main character.
This means that players need a total of 10 Heart Containers so they have to finish at least 40 Shrines. They can also complete the four main dungeons and 32 Shrines instead but it requires more time and effort for Link.
Zelda Breath Of The Wild Guide: Turn Stamina into Hearts
GameRant reports that if players used the said Spirit Orbs to buy Stamina Vessels instead of Heart Containers, they can still reassign them. In Hateno Village, Link can interact with a mopey-looking statue that would start a side-quest for him.
By talking to the said statue, it will steal some of Link’s essence, either a Heart Container or Stamina Vessel. Speaking to it for the second time would return the essence lost to Link.
The statue would then offer a deal where Link can sell one of his Heart Containers or Stamina Vessels for 100 Rupees. After selling one of either essence, the statue would sell it back again to Link for 120 Rupees.
Zelda Breath Of The Wild Guide: Navigating through the Lost Woods
In order to locate the Lost Woods, players have to follow the path through Mishi Woods at the northeast of Hyrule Castle. They can easily find the said path before the Death Mountain region and after passing the Woodland Stable.
In order to navigate through the Lost Woods, Link has to follow the flow of particles moving around the forest. If not followed, it would bring Link back to the entrance. After navigating through the said forest, Link would arrive at the Korok Forest, where the Master Sword rests.
