Rupee Farming Guide: How to Get Rupees Fast

This is a guide to farming Rupees in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity for the Nintendo Switch. Learn the different methods of how to farm rupees quickly, as well as the various ways you will need to spend your rupees.

How to Farm Rupees

Replay Challenges and Battles

Gained from defeating enemies and opening chests

Hyrule Warriors:Age of Calamity - Treasure Chests
The fastest way to get Rupees is by completing the challenges and battles as fast as possible and by defeating a lot of enemies. You will collect rupees from enemies you take down as well as from crates, barrels, and treasure chests you find on the map.

Barrels and crates only drop low amounts of rupees so it is not recommended to go out of your way for them. Also, take note that these Rupees will automatically be obtained even if you don't actually pick them up, so you can focus on attacking enemies while breaking barrels and crates.

Rewards increase for clear time and enemies defeated

Hyrule Warriors:Age of Calamity - Battle Record
You also gain rupees at the end of each battle, in the form of Clear Time and Enemies Defeated bonuses. Clear maps quickly, taking out a high number of enemies to get the most rupees possible.

The maximum amount you can earn for Clear Time and KOs is 200 Rupees.

Use Rupee Bonuses from Cooking Beforehand

HW - Honeyed Fruits

Certain cooking recipes will give you additional rupees in battle when you use them. Recipes like Honey Candy gives you 20% more Rupees while Honeyed Fruits and Honey Crepe give you 30% more Rupees. Once you have three slots for Cooking, you can stack these meal effects to get a total of 80% bonus!

If you're up for the challenge, you can cook Dubious Food to get 100% more Rupees but at the cost of -20% Max Health.

Sell Weapons and Materials

Sell Weapons at the Blacksmith

Hyrule Warriors:Age of Calamity - Selling Weapons at the Blacksmith
Another way of farming for Rupees is selling weapons at the blacksmith. You can easily get 200-500 Rupees depending on the weapon with this method.

We recommend selling weapons with a High-Resell Weapon skill or weapons without skills that you don't need to merchants

Scanning any amiibos you have lying around to collect weapons and materials, which you can sell for rupees. If you have reached the five amiibo cap, you can repeatedly change the date and scanning to keep receiving more rewards for easy money!

Strengthening Your Weapons

Strengthening Weapons

You'll have to use up rupees any time you want to power up your weapons through weapon fusion. This can end up using a lot of your hard earned rupees, so be sure to have plenty of them before leveling up your weapons too much!

Leveling Up Characters

Military Training Camp.JPG

After unlocking the Military Training Camp, you can use rupees to level up characters. Once you start reaching higher levels, each level up consumes more and more rupees, so be sure to go in with plenty!

Also note that you can only level up characters at lower levels that your highest level character, so you'll need to level grind the old fashioned way for at least one character.
