Zelda Breath of the Wild: The Master Trials: Trial of the Sword: Middle Trials: Underground Floor 10 (hinox) walkthrough

Defeating the hinox

Trial of the Sword: Middle Trials: Underground Floor 10 is a battle between you and a single hinox. You’ve finally made it to the end of the in-the-dark trials in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s The Master Trials DLC. You’re facing a sub-boss this time, which means it’s a tough fight. But it also means you only have one thing to worry about.

Middle Trials: Underground Floor 10 walkthrough

Equip a good weapon, your best shield and a decent bow. Now you’re just facing a hinox. You’ve done this before and this time isn’t really that different.

The best path to defeating the hinox begins behind it. Sneak past the sleeping giant, climb the wall behind it, and paraglide down onto its chest to retrieve the weapons on its neck: a knight’s bow, a knight’s broadsword and a thunderstorm rod.

Then it’s just a matter of running in the dark, casting stasis on the hinox to freeze it momentarily, shooting it in the eye with an arrow and clobbering it with your weapon while it’s dazed. You can see how we did it in the video above.

Luckily, the hinox’s eye glows, making it an easy target, too. When it sits down, rush up and grab the weapons around its neck.

As you’re running around, try to keep a brazier between you and the hinox. It’s pretty clumsy, so it tends to set itself on fire. This is just free damage for you.

This hinox is wearing the same metal greaves the one in the Beginning Trials was, so your only way to deal damage is to knock it down. Just keep shooting it in the eye (this is becoming a real theme, isn’t it?), then get close and deal as much damage as you can.
