How to Get the Master Sword in Tears of the Kingdom with Only Four Hearts
In this guide, we will show you how to obtain the Master Sword in Tears of the Kingdom with only four hearts and the fastest way possible. You don’t need a lot of hearts to get the Master Sword, but you do need two full bars of stamina. So, let’s get started!
Step 1: Complete 20 Shrines
The first step is to complete 20 shrines. There are many shrines in the game, and you can easily mark them on your map. The four Sky Islands do not count as they were already used to get your first heart. Once you complete 20 shrines, head to a Goddess Statue to upgrade your stamina.
Step 2: Upgrade Your Stamina
Go to an underground shelter in Lookout Landing and get a stamina upgrade. You will need to do this four more times until you have a second bar completely filled up.
Step 3: Optional – Gear Up
If you feel like you need better gear for the upcoming fight, head over to Gerudo Desert and farm some gibdos. They drop gibdo bones, which have 40 fuse attack power and can be used on arrow attachments. You can also find Phantom Greaves in a chest in the desert, which give you attack up.
Step 4: Head to Korok Forest
Now that you’re prepared, head towards Korok Forest. You can’t enter the forest directly, so you’ll need to go underground. Teleport to the Ikochu Shrine, which is north of the Woodland Stable on the map. Follow the underground pathway to the Korok Forest.
Step 5: Defeat the Enemies in the Underground
Once you reach the underground area, you’ll need to defeat a group of hand spawns and Phantom Ganon. Use your upgraded gear and elemental arrows to defeat them. After defeating the enemies, the Gloom will disappear from the area, and you’ll find some dark clumps and the Gloom Sword.
Step 6: Return to Korok Forest
Teleport back to the shrine in Korok Forest and speak to the Great Deku Tree. You’ll unlock a memory and learn that the Master Sword is in a dragon. Track the dragon’s location on your map and teleport to the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower.
Step 7: Obtain the Master Sword
Once you spot the dragon with the Master Sword, glide towards it and hold on to the sword. Your stamina will deplete, but once it’s empty, you’ll be dropped off, and the dragon will fly away. Congratulations, you now have the Master Sword!
With this guide, you can obtain the Master Sword in Tears of the Kingdom with only four hearts. Remember to upgrade your stamina and gear, and follow the steps carefully. Good luck, and happy gaming!
