Light a torch at the braziers before you enter, and let it lead your way. The flame will tilt in a certain direction – follow it. The biggest problem you’ll face is the fog. If it envelops you fully, it will teleport you back to the entrance. When you see it thickening, retrace your steps a bit.

Even though you can reach the sword pretty much any time, you won’t be able to take it. In order to get the Master Sword, you’ll need to have 13 heart containers.

The Master Sword is unbreakable, which means that once you’ve got it, you won’t have to worry about durability any more. It does have a recharge period – after some use, you’ll have to give it time before it’s combat-ready again. You can’t throw it, but it can shoot sword beams.

    Tried using a Hearty Elixir, and then a Hearty Food after, and neither worked in matching up to 13 heart containers. The Master Sword doesn’t recognize bonus heart containers.

      Yes, the Deku Tree says it only recognizes your “true strength”, so the bonus heart containers have no bearing on whether you can pick the sword up or not.

    Came to find out how many heart containers it requires and can confirm on the 13. In addition, I have ALL memories collected and it still needs 13 hearts. There is no way to avoid this. Cheers 🙂

      If that’s the case you should take or have taken a photo of your game with the master sword and having less than 13 heart containers, otherwise it’s not actually credible and a lot of people would want to re-create a glitch like that too.
