Normally Link loses stamina while climbing. He must then rest to recover stamina to keep climbing. Use the following glitch to keep climbing without having to rest to refill your stamina. Start climbing up any mountain, even in the rain. Press B to drop, then immediately press B again while holding the Left Analog-stick Forward. Link should run on his feet for a short burst, recovering stamina before climbing again. Keep repeating this process to recover stamina and climb endlessly. Simply press B and Forward after falling, but make sure you do this before completely running out of stamina or else you will fall until your stamina fully recovers.
Getting the unbreakable Master Sword
The unbreakable Master Sword is one of the best weapons in the game. It cannot be damaged and does not have a durability meter. However, it does have a cool down period before it can be used again in combat after it has been depleted of its charges. The Master Sword can be found in a grove inside the
, northeast of Great Hyrule Forest Central Hyrule. To reach the area, go through the Woodland
Stable and continue on the path until you reach the Lost Woods. Then, travel
towards the . While at the entrance to the forest, light
a torch at the nearby brazier. The torch flame will tilt in certain directions;
follow the directions of the flame. However, the forest is filled with fog that
can teleport you back to the start. Whenever it seems to be thickening around
you, retrace your steps back a bit to avoid the fog. The flame will eventually
guide you to where the sword is stuck inside a stone. To collect the Master
Sword, you will need 13 heart containers. A secret feature of the Master Sword
is when you attempt to throw the blade while at full health, you will instead
throw a beam. This is especially helpful against Keese and Guardians since the
beam is not affected by gravity. Korok Forest
Getting the Hylian Shield
The Hylian Shield is located inside
, which is one of the most difficult areas
in the game and the final dungeon. However, you do not actually have to
complete the rest of the game to get the shield and can go to the castle as
soon as you complete the tutorial and enter the open world. Once you reach Hyrule Castle , go towards its back by looping around the
castle until you are on the hills behind it. There is a broken bridge near the
castle's back; go to the west side of the bridge. At the broken bridge, jump
down and glide until you reach the luminous stones in the distance. Just before
those stones is an easy to reach platform that spirals towards the water. At
the top of the spiral platform is a Guardian that can be quite difficult to
defeat unless you are a higher level. Once you are at the top of the ramp and
facing the Guardian, run past it through the door and enter the castle,
avoiding damage from the Guardian. As soon as you enter the door, hug the
nearest wall to avoid the Guardian and reset it. Once the Guardian goes back to
its place, proceed further towards the gate in front of you. Use the Cryonis
rune to lift up the gate and get through it. You will enter a prison area with
lots of enemies locked in cells after passing through the gate. At the end of
this area is a side room that you can enter to wake up a skeletal boss,
Stalnox. Defeat Stalnox to get the Hylian Shield. The best way to defeat it is
by targeting its eye with ranged attacks until it falls, then hit it with the
sword. An upgraded Stasis rune also helps by freezing it in one location and
making it easier to hit the eye. If you already have obtained the Master Sword,
it will be easier to defeat Stalnox since the weapon gets double attack power
inside Hyrule Castle . Once Stalnox has been defeated, a loot
chest that contains the Hylian Shield will appear. The Hylian Shield is the
most iconic shield in The Legend Of Zelda series and has been shown in the
artwork for pretty much every game. Hyrule Castle
Getting the Dark Link costume
Successfully complete the "A Shady Customer" quest. The quest can be acquired from East Akkala Stable, and is given by an NPC named Kilton who appears in the
. After completing the "A Shady
Customer" quest, Kilton will begin appearing outside major towns at night
time. He only accepts monster parts. Killing monsters will reward you with
monster part items (tails, eyes, bones, guts, fangs, horns, etc.) that can be
traded to Kilton. Trade the indicated number of monster parts to get the
corresponding piece of Dark Link gear: Skull Lake
Dark Hood (3 defense): 1,999 mon
Dark Trousers (3 defense): 999 mon
Dark Tunic (3 defense): 999 mon
To quickly get monster parts (and lots of good gear), fight Hinox and Lynel. Hinox are giant cyclops creatures that are tough, but worth fighting. Even early in the game, they drop 4-5 Hinox Toenails that sell for 18 mon per drop. They are found throughout the game. Lynel are centaurs that are end-game enemies that drop Guts (100 mon), Horns (20 mon), and Hoofs (30 mon). They appear in the Akkala region, and taking Kilton side quests is a good way to find and fight Lynels. Once you obtain all three pieces of the Dark Link costume, you will get the "Night Speed Up" set bonus that allows Link to move faster at night, thereby increasing stealth. Dark Link first appeared in The Legend Of Zelda: Link's Awakening as the final Boss. Dark Link also appeared as a mini-Boss in The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.
Special Amiibo unlockables
The game is not setup by default to detect Amiibos. To setup the Amiibos functionality, open the inventory menu, select the "System" tab, and choose the "Options" selection to enable the Amiibo functionality by switching it from the default "Do Not Use". Once this setting has been activated, you can start using Amiibos. To do that, open the Rune menu and change the rune in the Sheikah Slate to the Amiibo. Then, place the Amiibo rune on a flat area of ground. Once the rune is in place, put the Amiibo toy over the Right Analog-stick on the Joy-Con to scan it. If scanned successfully, a chest will appear. You can only scan each Amiibo once per day. Most of the Amiibos give common unlockable items, but can also give food and materials. Some Amiibos can give rare items. Each time they are scanned, you have a random chance of the Amiibo dropping its rare item. The following is a list of possible common and rare drops from the Amiibos. All of the Tunics are three piece armor sets (cap, tunic, and leggings). Note: The Epona horse is guaranteed to drop the first time you scan Super Smash Bros. Link, but it only happens once per save game. You should only summon Epona if you have access to a stable to keep her permanently.

Getting the Warm Doublet
The Warm Doublet is a special piece of clothing that provides unlimited protection from cold weather status effects. Go to the Old Man's house south of the
in the Great Plateau. At the southern edge,
read the diary inside the house with the cook pot outside. The diary describes
a special recipe for "Spicy Meat and Seafood Fry". Cook this recipe,
then talk to the Old Man, saying "I cooked something" to get the Warm
Doublet. The diary does not reveal the Spicy Meat and Seafood Fry recipe. To
cook it, you need the following ingredients: Spicy Pepper, Raw Meat, and Hyrule
Bass. Spicy Peppers are found in the southern region of the Great Plateau. Look
near the Old Man's house, or growing on the path up to the Temple Of Time . Raw Meat drops from wild boars in the River Of The Dead . Crouch and sneak close, then carefully aim
an arrow to kill them with one shot. They will run away if they detect you.
Hyrule Bass are found in the waters between the Forest Of Spirits and Oman Au Shrine. Swim toward them from
the deep and herd them toward the beach to trap them. After collecting the
items, select the ingredients from your inventory and place them into a cooking
pot. There is one located outside the Old Man's house. After creating the
recipe, speak with the Old Man to get the Warm Doublet. Equip the flimsy armor
to explore the Great Plateau Tower region without taking damage from the cold
weather. Mount Hylia
Getting the Shard Of Farosh's Horn
Upgrading the Champion Tunic requires two Shard Of Farosh's Horn. This can easily be missed if you do not know what and where Farosh is. Farosh is one of the dragon spirits that roam the
. You can find Farosh near land of Hyrule around ; she will come out of the lake if you are close enough
to have her spawn. Go to the Lake Hylia near Lake Tower , and jump off to the north and land on the
south exit pillar off the bridge above Hylia. You will need a decent bow. It is
recommended to use a triple shot bow, like the Great Eagle Bow. Set up a fire
and wait until around to see the dragon spirit appear from water in the
northwest of the lake. It will be far away at first, but it will come towards
you. Wait for the dragon to get close enough for the wind to pick up so when
you jump you can use it to get even higher. Glide up and towards the dragon and
avoid any of the electric balls coming from the dragon. When you are close
enough to hit the dragon, aim your bow at her horn and hit it a few times with
the slow shot. When it glows that means the horn will fall into the lake. It
should fall in the water on the east side of the bridge. Repeat this process
again to get the two horns required to upgrade the Champion Tunic. Lake Hylia
Upgrading the Sheikah Slate
Successfully complete the "Locked Mementos" quest to upgrade the Sheikah Slate and unlock the camera, Hyrule Compendium, and an album. The "Locked Mementos" quest is given by Impa in

fork in the road. Take the left path to reach Fort Hateno . It is a long journey filled with enemies.
Just keep moving along the path to reach the village. Once you are inside the
village, go up and around to see the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab, which is high up
on the cliff. Enter the lab and talk to Purah and Symin. You will eventually
have a conversation with Purah where she will offer to repair the Sheikah Slate
once you bring the blue flame from the ancient furnace located in the town.
This blue flame is required to light up the furnace in the lab. Simply find the
blue flame and carry it using the torch from lamp to lamp. It is likely that
the torch will break during your journey back to the lab -- so keep an eye out
for the bushes that will give you sticks when struck. The lamp will take you
back to the lab. Once you have reached the lab, light the furnace outside with
your torch to activate a travel gate. Enter the lab and talk to Purah about
repairing the Sheikah Slate. She will repair the Sheikah Slate and you will get
a camera, Hyrule Compendium, and an album. Hateno Village
Turning rusty items into better items
Drop a rusty weapon or shield on the ground in front of a Rock Octorok (enemy that inhales then spits an exploding rock at you).

pillars on both sides of the raised platform to access the upper area. Once you
are up, do not proceed to the monk yet; look for a treasure chest in an alcove.
Then, get the Spirit Orb from the monk. Hylia River
Owa Daim Shrine: It is located on the southeastern side of
, at the southern edge of the Great Plateau.
After entering the shrine, place the Sheikah Slate on the pedestal on the left
side to get the Stasis rune that allows you to freeze time and build up the
momentum of certain objects. When the platform is straight, use the Stasis rune
on the large gear on the left side to get into the next area. However, be
careful while doing this because of incoming boulders that can kill you. Wait
for one to pass, then use the rune on the next one to reach the next section.
There is also a treasure chest on a higher platform. From the first platform,
grab the Iron Sledgehammer and equip it. Then, use the Stasis rune on the
boulder and continue hitting it with the Iron Sledgehammer to build its
momentum and reveal a new path. The path will lead you across the bridge to the
monk for another Spirit Orb. Mount Hylia
Dah Kaso Shrine: It is located below the
in southwestern Digdogg Suspension Bridge Central Hyrule. The main objective in this shrine is to
destroy the spear wielded by the Guardian Scout. As soon as you see him
charging it, dodge to the sides. Try dodging back because of the spear's range.
If the Guardian steps back and extends, quickly move behind a pillar to avoid
taking any damage. At about 50% HP, the Guardian will add laser attacks. To
avoid this, jump into the air, glide, and aim for the eye in order to stun it.
Aim for the eye or you will get hit by the attack. Inflict some more damage and
the Guardian will turn blue, indicating its final phase. During the final
phase, dodge and sprint while inflicting damage. Once you defeat it, grab the
Guardian Spear, Ancient Core, and Spirit Orb.
Wahgo Katta Shrine: It is located southeast of
Central Hyrule. After entering the shrine, climb the metal crates to find an Amber
inside a treasure chest. Stacking the crates does not allow you to reach the
monk, which is why you need to stack them against the opposite platform to find
a metal slab; use the Magnesis rune. Then, build a bridge to the monk to get
the Spirit Orb.
Kaya Wan Shrine: It is located on the eastern edge of
Central Hyrule, north of Wetland Stable. After entering the shrine, use
the Cryonis rune to get past the waterfall. In the next area, there will be a
Guardian Scout. Hit it in the eye to quickly kill it. On the right side of the
platform, you can see a treasure chest in the water that can be accessed with
the Cryonis rune. The treasure chest contains an Ancient rune. In the next area
are two Guardian Scouts. Since it can be difficult to kill them simultaneously,
try to build a platform and use a powerful bow to snipe at them. Then, use the
Cryonis rune underneath the gate on the left side to open it and get the
Knight's Broadsword. Finally, use the wooden shaft in the water to guide it to
the end of the waterfall. You can then jump and use the Paraglider to reach the
monk and get the Spirit Orb.

Bonding with dogs
Dogs appear throughout Hyrule, usually near civilization. There are dogs around the
farm, and behind the Dueling Peak Stable.
You can bond with any dog. After bonding enough with a dog, they will follow
you around and lead you to treasure chests. The following are some ways to
increase your bond with dogs: Hateno Village
- Stand near a dog and look at it for a puff of pink to appear. That is the first step for any dog interaction.
- Give the dog food. It does not seem to matter which type of food, but the quality will increase the bond. To give a dog food, open your inventory and select "Hold", then drop the food on the ground near the dog. If the dog sees you drop the food in front of its face, it will increase your bond with it.
- After increasing your bond, the dog will follow you around. Run around with the dog and let it chase you.
- Play fetch with the dog. Use any wooden branch cut from a tree and throw it while the dog is paying attention. It will run off and retrieve the stick.
Once you have bonded enough with a dog, he or she will lead you toward a buried treasure chest. Use Magnesis to see the chest and pull it out of the ground.
Avoiding the Blood Moon
Use the following trick to avoid the Blood Moon respawning enemies you kill. On a night when you see the Blood Moon rising, travel to any shrine. Enter it just before . You can either wait until you think it is safe to leave again or just run through the shrine's puzzle and then leave. If enough time has passed, the Blood Moon event will not have been triggered and none of the enemies you killed will have respawned.

Using weapons to control climate
Fire swords increase Link's ambient temperature and Ice swords decrease Link's ambient temperature. Use this to your advantage when exploring cold and hot areas, like high peaks.
If you drop items on the raft before stepping off it and onto
, they will still be there after the
cutscene. Use this trick to make clearing the island much easier. Eventide Island
Skipping Rin Oyaa Shrine puzzle
Take the orb and stand in the middle of where the orb is supposed to go. Put the orb down and use the Stasis rune to freeze it. Then, run up to the platform that rises up and wait for the rune effect to wear off. The orb will then roll into place, raising the platform and allowing you to completely skip the puzzle.
Alternate chuchu jelly types
You can change the chuchu jelly types by using different elements on them. Fire gives red jelly, ice gives white jelly, and lightning gives yellow jelly. There are several weapons with elemental properties in the game that work well for this.
Normally Cuccos are not harmful and do not attack Link. However, if you keep attacking a Cucco, eventually the camera will focus on the bird as it calls for friends. A swarm of Cuccos will then appear from offscreen and constantly attack Link. Make sure to save the game before doing this since there is no way to defeat a Cucco. There are lots of Cuccos in
. There is also a side quest that tasks Link
with finding 10 missing Cuccos. Cuccos appear in 13 of the main The Legend Of
Zelda titles, and first appeared in 1992 in The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The
Past. Kakariko Village
Replace those weapons from defeating the divine beast
There are several weapons you can replace in the game, notably the GREAT EAGLE
BOW, and the Boulder Smasher, but they require
a weapon that can be hard to find and diamond that can get tricky to get...
First, the weapon, you'll need a swallow bow, after reading tons of location articles of where it might be, I lucked out...
I found a completely reliable, constant, easy to find location to always get a swallow bow to replace your great eagle bow...
AT THE FLIGHT RANGE....
Yes, where you first met that guy that takes you to the divine beast, theres a swallow bow that respawns in his hut... Same in goron city theres a cobble crusher right on edge of a house somewhere...
Now we have our weapons, we need a diamond... Diamonds come from ore... Or more commonly, from rare ore... These notably have orange crystals coming out of them... Two things, marks the locations of these special ores on your shieka slate and save the game... After you've saved it, smash open the rock to get a gem of some sort... It might be good it might not... If it's not, simply load that save and try again until you get your diamond...
If your looking for more rupees, theres a simple method for that if your far enough along in the game... Take a picture of a SILVER BOKOBLIN and register it to your compendium, these are the albino looking ones... But more importantly, they drop gemstones when they are defeated, (keep in mind they have 720 hp as opposed to a normal bokoblin has 13)sense these guys with your sensor + and youll easily get rich quick....
Easiest way to defeat a lynel or any other high hitpoint enemy
Very, very simple, just hit it with an ancient arrow from akala ancient tech lab located in the FAR NORTHEAST of hyrule... This arrow is kinda like a black hole... It will kill your foe, but it wont drop any items either unless it's a guardian...
