Most of you that have been playing Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, be it on the Nintendo Switch or Wii U, you will no doubt have come to a point in the game where you have used one of the Champion’s weapons and have it break on you. Though they are awarded to you after recapturing the Divine Beast by the chief of the people that the said Divine Beast is to supposedly protect, these weapons are much stronger and durable but not unbreakable and will eventually have to be discarded.
All is not lost however, as there are masons of sorts in each of the four hometowns of the Champions that can replace the Champion weapon associated with their champion. The Zora mason can replace Mipha’s Trident, the Goron mason can replace the Daruk’s Sword, The Rito mason can replace Revali’s Bow and Buliara can replace Urbossa’s Scimitar and Shield. To replace each item comes at a cost which requires certain materials to forge them. Most being a weaker version of the weapon, a diamond and 5 pieces of flint or wood. Check out the slideshow below which shows you which characters you will need to talk to in order to recreate the appropriate Champion’s Weapon.
You can only replace the champion weapons if you have already owned them. The masons won’t forge you replacement weapons until you have beaten the Divine Beast that threatens their land and possessed the original Champion’s weapon which is awarded to you by the Chief of their Race.

Well, if Nintendo refuses to give us a number, I guess we’ll just have to listen to the sales tracking firm SuperData instead.
According to a gamesindustry.biz article, SuperData states, Nintendo has sold 1.5 million Switch units worldwide and those numbers do contain data that has been provided by GFK and Famitsu. However those numbers are just for first week sales. Nintendo always said would sell 2 million units during March and if those numbers are true, than that figure could easily have been reached already. But that’s not all!

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has indeed broken from tradition of collecting hearts to restore your health and has also added environmental dangers that can harm you as well, be it atop of Icy mountains or Active Volcanoes to even braving the desert or running amok amidst a thunderstorm. To replenish life you have to cook items you have gathered and make dishes to increase the amount of hearts you can recover (Check out our Cooking Recipe Guide for more information). However, while some foods do have extra effect bonuses, sometimes you don’t want to waste a dish that could help you out later on just for an effect boost, this is where elixirs come in so allow us to present to you our Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Elixir Guide!

For those of you that have been playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild and are looking for a little extra help in cooking up heart replenishing recipes with all those ingredients you have been picking up all over Hyrule, we have put together a little guide for you to aid you with what ingredients you should mix and what dish will come of it. Some items you can cook over an open fire like steaks and apples but the more energy fulfilling dishes are the cooked recipies which are done in the cooking pot. Though most dishes only require one or two ingredients, adding more quantity of ingredients will result in a dish that will provide more hearts.
