Restore Rusted Weapons
This section provides a tip on how to restore rusted weapons and shields.
Weapons are useful tools in combat. In Breath of the Wild, they are unfortunately limited to their durability until they become subject to degradation. However, the Kingdom of Hyrule introduces a mechanic that allows Link to get back his weapons to mint condition, in a natural way that bypasses the presence of a blacksmith.
To do this, approach an inhaling Rock Octorok cautiously and toss a Rusty Weapon or Shield. Eventually, it will spit it out and restore the equipment to its prime form.
This table summarizes the weapons and shields that can be thrown to the Rock Octorok.
