  1. So, I’ve been wondering: Where do the super rare weapons and shields end up after they break? i.e Royal guards claymore, hammer, spear and the sheild?…these super strong weapons, do they just….break…forever?

    • Well, you can always wait for a blood moon and go to the place you got the rare weapon, for example, wait for a blood moon then go get the royal guard’s claymore at the guard’s chamber. For the shield, however, once it’s broken or lost, you have to build up Tarrey Town (Complete Hylian homeowner then complete From The Ground Up), Then go to Granté (The rare item dealer), He will sell you the Hylian shield for 3000 Rupees.

  2. Best bow I encountered was the savage lynel bow, 5x arrow!!! Only have picked it up once so far, somewhere in the bad lands I think

  3. For the spring loaded hammer, he called the shop “Kiltonis Shop”, not “Kilton’s Shop”.
