Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild: How To Repair Weapons
Breath of the Wild - Perma Weapon
(Last Updated On: March 10, 2017)

In Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players can’t just rely on a single tactic to get them through the game. Spamming a sword attack, relying on turtling incoming blows with a shield, or trying to cheese your way through the game isn’t entirely possible due to weapon degradation. However, there are a couple of weapons you can get your hands on that don’t just break and go away.

YouTuber FantasticalGamer put together a quick three minute video showing gamers how to get their hands on permanent weapons in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. You can check out the video below.

He explains that when you first go to Zora’s Domain, on the bottom floor to the right there’s an NPC named Dento that will be able to repair the two legendary tridents. However, before he will be of aid to you, you first have to complete the Divine Beast quest and cleanse Vah Ruta while completing the dungeon.

Upon completing the quest you’ll get the Lightscale Trident. Dento will offer to repair the Ceremonial Trident and the Lightscale Trident if you have them in your inventory. You’ll need 5 flint, 1 diamond and a Zora spear.

You can get a Zora spear from in the shrine dungeon where you get the spirit orb.

You can get your hands on the Ceremonial Trident on the circular pathway in the Zora’s Domain. The location is marked on the map in the image below.

When you get to that location, create two ice blocks and then use the magnet on the water and pull the Ceremonial Spear from out of the water.

Now the reason these two weapons are considered perma weapons is because you can keep repairing them. They do break, but since you can go to Dento and have them repaired, you can keep them for as long as you want, opposite of some other weapons that break and disappear from your inventory.

So they’re not permanent in the way that they don’t ever break, but they are permanent in the way that they don’t disappear on you and you can repair them and keep using them so long as you have the materials and you completed the Vah Ruta quest.

    when I first got the text that you could “repair” the ceremonial or light scale spears I used them like nothing else because “hey, I could just fork over some materials and its will go back to being good as new” sadly, that was not the case.

    it would be more accurate to say, they can forge a new spear (only once since the existence of two lightscale spears would be absolutely blasphemous… apparently) and only after it is broken or “no longer in the world” (seriously, the zora blacksmith just loves to screw you over with that line).

    all I can say is, keep the original safe because, if you break it and get a new one, they deliberately taunt you with it being a copy of the original.

    Link looks weird wearing other outfits. Can you get the classic Link outfit? I guess you can, seeing as how it’s in some of the screenshots on this blog. Does it have uber stats or something?

    • Game is setup a bit different from other RPGs… it’s not always about higher stats but what works in certain situations. Some outfits are better for the scorching heat, others work better when Link traverses through cold areas, others are good against certain elements, while others can absorb a lot of damage. You have to mix and match your gear a lot throughout the game depending on who you’re fighting and what the situation calls for.

        Hmm, okay. Thanks.

    Just finished that questline yesterday. Great colossus boss fight, dungeon romp and regular boss all in one.

    Otherwise, it’s the ‘Oh, you already did this’ parts of the game, plus the other little things along with the world size that really impresses me.

    • BotW is one of those rare open-world games where it actually becomes more interesting the higher up in level you get. Usually the opposite happens, especially in GTA games where it feels like the more you get the less there is to do.
