How to get Hylian Shield in Breath of The Wild

In order to get the shield, you’ll have to beat the Stalnox boss – the giant skeleton with one eye. Save your game manually before the fight, so you don’t have to backtrack in case you die.

Obviously, the eye is his weak spot. You can get a few hits in before he assembles. Once he’s up, shoot him in the eye. It will stagger him. While he’s sitting there, holding his eye, strike him with everything you’ve got. As soon as he starts to get up again, run away or he’ll sit on you. Repeat the process several times. When he’s out of health, his eye will fall out. Destroy it or he’ll reassemble.

Once you’re done, a chest will appear, with the shield inside. Don’t forget to pick up the stray weapons and ingredients as well, they’re sure to come in handy.

        When the Hylian Shield breaks, it’s gone. But a certain NPC will sell a replacement to you. Only after you’ve picked the first one up though. He’s in Terry Town, once the From the Ground up quest is done.
