Everyone in the Zelda community talks about the Master Sword. But what is so special about it? The Master Sword was a go-to weapon for almost all late-game players in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and now it has returned in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (ToTK). In this article, we will discuss how to break the Master Sword and why it is so popular among fans.
The durability of weapons is a major concern in both BotW and ToTK. Isn’t it frustrating that your weapons break every time you’re engaged in an intense fight? When all your strongest weapons break, you’re either left with the weaker ones that don’t deal enough damage or have no other weapons in your arsenal. Wouldn’t it be great if there was one weapon that was both powerful and unbreakable? Well, there is one, though. And it’s the Master Sword.
Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (ToTK): How to Break the Master Sword
The Master Sword is an old-school weapon in Zelda: ToTK. It made its appearance in almost all previous main Zelda titles as well as in subsidiary ones. The reason why you should have the Master Sword is because the sword is unbreakable (sort of). Yes, you heard that right. You cannot break the Master Sword. You can use it for the rest of your playthrough. In ToTK, not only has the Master Sword returned in all its former glory, but you can also make it much more powerful than it was before.
How to Use Master Sword?
If you acquired the Master Sword, use it to your heart’s content. Do not be worried about its durability since we mentioned that it is essentially unbreakable. But has your Master Sword broken already? If it has, fear not. The notion that the Master Sword is unbreakable is a bit twisted. The Master Sword can break with constant use, just like all weapons in the game. However, the neat aspect of this is that it will regenerate its durability (or energy) after a while, more specifically after 10 minutes in real-time. Note that you cannot rest/sleep to advance the recharge time of the Master Sword.
How to see how much time is left until the Full Recharge of the Master Sword?
When your Master Sword has broken, open your inventory and highlight the sword. Above the item description, you should notice how much time is left until its full recharge. So you can efficiently decide if you want to take on a difficult boss fight or wait for it to fully recharge.
Unlock the True Potential of the Master Sword
You can dish out massive chunks of damage using the Master Sword. ToTK has a unique weapon-fusion mechanic that you can use to infuse the sword with your desired item/elemental gems. Not only does it make the Master Sword look cooler, but it also enhances the attack power of the sword. So make sure to infuse it with various in-game materials to increase its efficiency.
