However, it’s one of the best shields in the game, but it can be destroyed – but you can get it again as many time as you wish! Finding it is easy, but getting past the monster that’s guarding it may not be. In this guide, we’re going to show you Zelda Breath of The Wild Hylian Shield location, how to get it.
Where to find Hylian Shield in Zelda BoTW
The famous Hyrulean shield is hidden deep within Hyrule Castle. It’s in one of the deepest dungeons in Hyrule Caste Underground. The castle is located on the northern edge of the Central Hyrule area. Once you’re inside, just travel downwards and look for a large, round room with a giant skeleton in the middle.
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.
