There are a couple of really strong and powerful weapons that you can get in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom but they don’t really pack as much of a punch as Link’s Master Sword. This is one of the best weapons in the game. In this Zelda TotK guide, we review how to get Link’s Master Sword.

The Master Sword is not in one specific location and is found on a flying light dragon that roams around. So you need to get to a location where the dragon is close. You cant simply head over to the dragon and jump on it, you need to first get the quest called Recovering the Hero’s Sword, which will allow you to get the sword. This can be found in Korok Forest after the Lost Woods.

You can activate the quest so that the location of the Light Dragon is tracked. Otherwise, there are other dragons flying around too, which can make things a bit confusing.

Before heading out to the dragon, make sure that you have enough green stamina. You will need two full green stamina wheels and the yellow stamina that you get from consumables is not going to work. So upgrade your stamina at the Goddess Statues.

Getting On Top Of The Light Dragon

You will need to head over to a high location such as a nearby Skyview Tower so that you can jump off and glide onto the dragon. You can then make your way to the dragon’s head to find Link’s Master Sword stuck deep in its skull. If you have two green stamina wheels then you will be able to get the sword. If not then the dragon will shake you off and you will fall.

This is how you can get Link’s Master Sword in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK). You can also check out our guide on how you can get the radiant armor set.
