How to Repair Decayed Master Sword in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

The iconic Master Sword is almost as legendary as Link himself. This fabled sword is an inseparable part of the Legend of Zelda games. The Master Sword was the only unbreakable weapon in BOTW. Unfortunately, when the Upheaval happened, all weapons started decaying. And the same goes for your Master Sword. In the opening cutscene, we see Ganondorf shattering the sword into smithereens. Now all that has left is the Decayed Master Sword in TOTK. The sword’s one point of damage in this form is laughable and weaker than even the weakest weapons in the game. However, can it be fixed and returned to its full power?

WARNING: Some spoilers ahead from the first region. When you complete all four Shrines in the Great Sky Island region, the main story will proceed and you will finally be able to open the door in the Temple of Time. When you go through that door, there will be a ball of light to interact with. By touching it, a cutscene will ensue. You will pull out your Decayed Master Sword, and it will be given to Zelda. She is not on the same timeline as you. Hence, you will not have the broken Master Sword with you once you jump to Hyrule. However, as it’s always the case, you will eventually get the repaired version of Master Sword. But that will be far later in the game. Since it will be 50 hours into the game, we will not spoils this for you!
