Zelda Breath of the Wild: The Master Trials: Trial of the Sword: Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 8

Lizalfos, an electric chuchu and a treasure chest

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: Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 8 is a battle between you a few spread out enemies — four lizalfos and a large electric chuchu — and a lot of water to navigate. There’s not a lot of opportunity for stealth, so you’re in for a fight in this level of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s The Master Trials DLC.

Underground Floor 8 walkthrough

Pick a direction to sweep the floor — either clockwise or counterclockwise. This will let you handle each of the baddies in turn, rather than let them all notice you at once. We recommend turning left first because it gets the toughest fight out of the way first.

Climb up the tall rock between you and the left wall. There are two lizalfos and an electric chuchu waiting for you. Get their attention with an arrow. When they’re all grouped together, shoot the next arrow into the chuchu — when it explodes, it’ll shock the two lizalfos. It won’t deal much damage, but it’ll give you a chance to get close.

Jump over to them and take them out. Smash or burn the crates, then turn to the right and grab the underwater chest. Continue to the back of the room.

Handle the lizalfos on the rock in the middle of the wall, then continue to the island in the back right corner. There’s a metal crate underwater that you can reach from here. If the lizalfos hasn’t noticed you yet, drop it on its head to take it out.

Underground Floor 8 armor and weapons

Nearly every underground floor in Trial of the Sword includes some combination of armor, weapons and food that you should collect before leaving and use in subsequent levels. Here’s what you can find in this underground floor.

Underground Floor 8 armor and weapons
  • 3 boko spears (holding up the roasted bass around the fire)
  • Boko spear (lizalfos on left)
  • Throwing spear (lizalfos on left)
  • Lizal bow (lizalfos in back center)
  • Lizal boomerang (lizalfos in back right)
Underground Floor 8 food
  • 3 roasted bass (to the left around the campfire)
  • Food in crates next to campfire on the left
Underground Floor 8 treasure chest

There is a chest underwater on the left side of the room. It’s right in the middle of the four small rocks. Magnesis it out for 10 arrows.
