Best Starting Weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

To get the best starting weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you have to get to fusing. We’ve explained how to fuse in a separate guide, so we’re gonna assume that you know how it works for the purposes of this article. Now, even the most basic fusing can both boost the damage your weapon does and increase its durability by 25. Fusing a weapon with a weapon increases the durability by the amount the fused weapon had. This works only once, sadly. In short, a sword that you fuse a big boulder onto will do more damage and last longer than a regular sword. This, however, is just the tip of the iceberg of possibilities.

For example, one of the best Zelda Tears of the Kingdom weapons you can craft involves fusing two skeleton bokoblin arms. This will net you a weapon that does forty damage. For the amount of effort it takes to bring down two skeleton bokoblins (next to zero), that’s a pretty big get. Also, gems have way more of a role to play in TotK as compared to BotW. Namely, you can fuse them to weapons (even something as borderline useless as a branch) to create magic wands. Different gems grant different elemental effects: topaz is lightning, ruby is fire, opal is water, sapphire is ice, etc. If you’re lucky enough to score a diamond, fuse it to a weapon top add extra raw damage to it. The possibilities are nigh endless, so feel free to share your own best weapon recipes in the comments.
