Trial of the Sword: Final Trials: Underground Floor 1 in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s The Master Trials DLC is the beginning of several rain-themed levels.
Before we even begin here, let’s talk about how these first few rooms work. It’s storming, so that means you can’t equip anything metal without running the risk of being struck by lightning. That’s OK, though, because you’re only fighting one-hit enemies and literally anything you pick up is an effective weapon. That doesn’t mean you can ignore those metal weapons, though. In fact, you need to pick them up because you’re going to need them later when the environment changes.
You can’t even ignore the various rusty weapons and shields you see lying around. Seven floors in, you’ll run into a rock octorok. When you feed it all of the rusty items you find in the first five levels, it’ll spit out polished up versions. We’ll walk you through that process when you get there.
Underground Floor 1 walkthrough
You only have four stalkoblins (skeletal bokoblins) to deal with on Final Trials: Underground Floor 1, but that doesn’t mean you can just coast through. They might only have one hit point each (even though they require two hits to kill), but they’re well-armed. Couple that with being hobbled by the environment, and you just can’t let your guard down.
The first three stalkoblins will come at you almost as soon as you land. Since you’re unarmed, start by throwing a remote bomb. That should knock out at least a couple of them. Pick up a weapon (or a bokoblin arm), and go after them. Try to destroy every skull that hits the ground. If you don’t, that skull will end up on another skeleton and it’ll just add another hit you need to land to your total.
As you run away and maneuver to fight these first three, keep to the left side of the room — there’s an archer ahead of you and to the right a little that might notice you and make things difficult.
Once you’ve taken care of the first three and collected everything they drop (including their arms), you can work your way to the archer. He should be standing near a large tree that you can use for cover as you approach.
