The Master Sword, the recurring legendary weapon in The Legend of Zelda series, returned to the franchise with Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. The iconic sword is the only weapon in the newest “The Legend of Zelda” title, which doesn’t break. Albeit, it will become temporarily unusable after its extended use in combat due to the unavailability of infinite weapon durability.
Whenever you fight with Master Sword in Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom, it will lose some of its energy with each hit. With continuous use, the Master Sword will eventually run out of energy, after which you will no longer be able to use it. But there is nothing to worry.
The Master Sword can be easily recharged again. So one thing is clear, Master Sword in Zelda Tears of Kingdom can’t be broken, but of course runs out of energy if overused. This guide will help you find out how to get the Master Sword and how to recharge it when it loses all of its energy.
How to Recharge the Master Sword in Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom
Despite not boasting infinite weapon durability, Master Sword is unbreakable in Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom (except when mummified Ganondorf decays its blade at the start of the game’s story). Players will have to wait 10 minutes for Master Sword to recharge after extended use in the game.
However, the game doesn’t require players to do anything special to recharge the Master Sword in Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom. The sword will recharge during its 10-minute cooldown, while players can swap it with other weapons in their inventory. Once recharged, players can equip the iconic sword again.
How to get Master Sword in Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom
As mentioned, at the start of Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom’s story, mummified Ganondorf decays the Master Sword’s blade, breaking it. However, players can find the powerful sword again in the game and retrieve it. For the unversed, the Master Sword is lodged in the head of the Light Dragon. Therefore, one must find the Light Dragon to retrieve the sword.
There are three ways to get the Master Sword in Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom, which are given as follows:
- Starting the “Recovering the Hero’s Sword” quest – It will allow players to get the exact location of the Light Dragon (speaking to the “Deku Tree” to reveal its location).
- Completing “The Dragon’s Tears” quest – Finishing the quest will spawn the Light Dragon for a while (completing all the Geoglyphs).
- Tracking down the Light Dragon by keeping a watch from Sky Islands (the dragon circles around Hyrule).
The third method doesn’t require the completion of any quest but can be more time-consuming if players are not lucky enough to spot the Light Dragon. However, if players spot the dragon, they can use any aerial vehicle to reach the creature’s head to retrieve the sword.
Players must also note that pulling out Master Sword from Light Dragon’s head in Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom requires two green stamina wheels. Therefore, players must try retrieving the sword after acquiring enough stamina.
