As you can see, in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, there are many shields to choose from. Today we will be talking about how to get the Hylian Shield, as it is the most valuable shield you can get. There will be an increased level of durability in Skyward Sword’s shields just as it does in Breath of the Wild. In that game as well, the Hylian Shield stands out as having the capability of not breaking and sustaining infinite wear and tear. Despite this, it can’t simply be purchased directly from a vendor; instead, it’s obtained in another manner. Though, you cannot obtain this shield until after you have finished the sixth dungeon, and so it will contain a small amount of spoilers.
How to Get the Hylian Shield In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
When you have learned the songs of the three dragons, the quest to acquire this shield opens up. When it comes to getting this shield, one of the three dragons will be your guide. You should look for Lanayru specifically. In order to obtain your prize, you must first find the Lanayru Desert dragon. You can enter the dragon’s resting place through the same cave system where you encountered the goron that gave you access to the Sand Sea.
Follow the path through, and then escort the minecart containing a timeshift stone over to the bones so that you can talk to the dragon. As part of your quest, you’ll be tasked with planting an essential seed that will enable him to heal. It would be best to plant your seed in Sealed Temple after reliving the past if you run into difficulty finding a place for it. If you give him fruits that grow today, he will teach you his part of the song and tell you that something special is going to be created for you.
A Boss Rush is the Final Step
If you leave, just immediately return to the area to get a special trial from Lanayru. It contains every boss you’ve ever fought up to this point, including all of your fights with The Imprisoned. The Hylian Shield can only be yours after you defeat eight bosses. It’s not without a catch though, you can only bring with you your shield, no pouch items may be brought in. The second issue is that you can only pick one boss from the group to fight, and the rest are put in random order. Now that you are ready, take a deep breath and get ready for the fight.
