All of the Weapons in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom have a Durability mechanic through which the weapons will end up breaking after using them for a while. Melee Weapons, Bows, and Shields, all will break when they are used after a critical damage point. The game will notify you when one of your weapons is severely damaged and you will be able to see the Red Highlight on the weapon in your inventory. Once the weapon is broken, you will have to find another weapon to replace it. However, you can also repair your damaged weapon with a simple technique. So, that you never have to find or replace the weapon that you love using.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to Repair Weapons in Tears of the Kingdom.
How to Repair Weapons in Tears of the Kingdom
Players will be able to repair their broken Weapons and Shields by finding an enemy named “Rock Octorok”. Rock Octorok can only be found in the Eldin Mountains region of the world map and there are a number of them spread around the region. Rock Octorok will shoot a burning boulder at your location when it engages you. Well, the technique to repair your weapons includes getting engaged by Rock Octorok because, before every attack, it will suck air in order to shoot the burning boulder. Players will have to engage with Rock Octorok and then stand at a distance from it to drop the damaged Weapon, Bow, and Shield on the ground. When the Rock Octorok, sucks in the air, it will suck your weapon or shield in its mouth and start chewing it. After a moment, it will shoot your weapon or shield out in your direction.
When you pick up the weapon or shield, it will be fully repaired and it also has a random buff on it. You can gain Durability Up or Attack Up buff by repairing your weapon or shield with this technique. Make sure to Dismiss your companions while repairing your weapons and shields because your companions can kill Rock Octorok when it engages you. If this happens then you will have to find another Rock Octorok to repair your weapons and shields.
Rock Octorok Location in Tears of the Kingdom
Rock Octorok can be found in the Eldin Mountains region which is on the Northeast side of the map. Rock Octoroks are spread around the Eldin Mountain region but you can find a couple of them near the Goron City in Eldin Mountain Region. While traversing through the area, you will pass through the Goron City Settlement and once you do, make sure to interact with the Marakuguc Shrine to activate the Fast Travel Point.
