Zelda Breath of the Wild: The Master Trials: Trial of the Sword: Middle Trials: Underground Floor 9 walkthrough

Defeating a decayed guardian in the dark

Trial of the Sword: Middle Trials: Underground Floor 9 of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s The Master Trials DLC will pit you against another decayed guardian. In the dark. This is an intimidating room, but you’ve got this.

Middle Trials: Underground Floor 9 walkthrough

Don’t bother lighting a torch when you start this room — you’re not going to be able to use it for long, and everywhere you need to worry about is already lit by braziers. There are a few explosive barrels around, but they’re only important to you to know places to avoid. It’s possible to throw them at the guardian and deal some damage, but, in our experience, they’re more likely to explode in your face than make it to the bad guy.

There are platforms in all four corners of the room. You’re going to use them for two things. First, they’ll (mostly) cover you from the laser eye-beams of the guardian. Second, you’re going to jump off of them so you can get some bullet-time arrow shots off at the guardian’s eye.

Pick a corner, run up the stairs, jump off and shoot the guardian in the eye to stun it. If you’re not in a rush (and you have plenty of arrows), you can just run to another corner and repeat the process. If you want to get up close, now’s your chance. Deal some damage, then run back to a wall and take cover.

If you run low on arrows, there are two crates on one of the platforms where you can find a few more.
