How to Become Overpowered in Tears of the Kingdom Within Minutes
Are you tired of starting Zelda games feeling weak and vulnerable? In this guide, we will show you how to become overpowered within minutes of entering free roam in Tears of the Kingdom. We will cover how to obtain powerful weapons, shields, bows, armor, and even the Hylian Shield at the very beginning of the game.
Step 1: Acquire the Endura Carrot
First, head over to the cherry blossom tree located east of Lookout Landing. Beneath the tree, you will find an Endura Carrot. Collect it and fast travel back to Lookout Landing.
Step 2: Cook the Endura Carrot
Jump down into the bunker and head over to the cooking station. Hold the Endura Carrot in your hands and cook it to create an enduring fried Wild Greens. This will help with stamina later on.
Step 3: Launch from Lookout Skyview Tower
Head over to the lookout Skyview Tower and launch yourself out of it. Activate the glider as fast as possible and head towards Hyrule Castle. If you don’t make it all the way with your current stamina, do not use the Endura Carrot yet. Instead, make your way to the area as quickly as possible.
Step 4: Enter Hyrule Castle
Once you reach the castle, follow the path shown in the video to avoid any monsters and collect various powerful items along the way. These items include the Royal Guard Uniform, Dusk Bow, Royal Bow, and 300 rupees.
Step 5: Acquire the Champions Leathers
After collecting the items, head to the throne room and open the hidden passage behind the throne. Inside, you will find the Champions Leathers, a throwback to Breath of the Wild.
Step 6: Collect More Powerful Weapons and Armor
Continue exploring the castle to find more powerful weapons and armor, such as the Royal Guard Sword, Royal Guards Shield, Royal Guards Bow, and Royal Guards Claymore. These items will significantly increase your combat capabilities.
Step 7: Obtain the Hylian Shield
Fast travel back to the unlocked shrine and follow the path shown in the video to reach the Harbor entrance. Carefully navigate the area to avoid any fights and reach the top of the cliff. Light the torch with a fire arrow, and a chest containing the Hylian Shield will appear.
Step 8: Upgrade the Royal Guards Armor
If you upgrade all the pieces of the Royal Guards Armor to level 2, you will gain the Charge Attack Stamina Up ability, just like in Breath of the Wild.
By following this guide, you will become overpowered within minutes of starting Tears of the Kingdom.
