Zelda Breath of the Wild guide: The Master Trials: Trial of the Sword: Middle Trials: Underground Floor 8 walkthrough

Don’t miss the weapons

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

Trial of the Sword: Middle Trials: Underground Floor 8 brings you to the halfway point of the in-the-dark rooms you have to find your way through during The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s The Master Trials DLC. You only have a few more to get through, and this one is easier than the last.

Middle Trials: Underground Floor 8 walkthrough

Light a torch or tree branch when you start, then turn to the left. Head all the way to the corner, then turn right. Not far down the wall, you’ll bump into a wizzrobe with a meteor rod.

After it’s dispatched (remember to use stasis to freeze it in place), relight your torch and continue along the wall to the back of the room. Turn right at the corner, and move toward the center of the room slowly. There are three well-armed bokoblins around a fire that will notice you. Stay along the back wall. If you approach slowly, you’ll be able to kite them back to you one at a time.

You’re going to be fighting in the dark again, so keeping the fights to one-on-one is important. You can focus on keeping the bokoblins in sight and locking on — which will put a handy target above their heads.

Once the lights come back on, pick up everything you can find around the campfire. There’s nothing hidden around the edges of the room, so just focus on where the bokoblins were hanging out. Use the campfire if you need to cook anything, then head to the portal.
