The first DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has finally been released. The Master Trials are here. While it’s mostly cool outfits and sweet items, there’s also something called The Trial of the Sword. A difficult quest that pushes players to their limits. Finding this quest can be a challenge in itself so if you’d rather just jump into the fight, here’s how you can find the quest.
This quests tasks players to defeat a 45 room dungeon. Each room is filled with enemies and players can only use the equipment they discover inside the room. Needless to say, it’s extremely challenging however, the reward is worth it. Completing this challenge will reward you with the ability to use the power of the Master Sword at all times without consequences.
Reaching the trial is no walk in the woods. Well, it is but it’s not an easy walk. The Trial of the Sword is located in the Korok Forest which can only be accessed by going through the Lost Woods. To reach the entrance of the Lost Woods you need to follow the path through Mishi Woods. Once you pass the Woodland Stable you’re almost there. We have an article about how to traverse the Lost Woods here to help adventurers find their way.
Starting the Trial
The trial can only be started if you already have the Master Sword so you need to get that first. After obtaining the sword, all you need to do is return to the pedestal in the center of Korok Forest to begin the challenge. You can then venture into the 45 room dungeon flooded with enemies looking to stop you from reaching the sword.
Good luck champions, you’ll need it to earn the sword.
