How to Farm Weapons Quickly

Repeatedly play battles with a high recommended level

Weapon Farming.jpg

By playing battles with a high recommended level, you should be able to pick up weapons that have a high base attack at Lv. 1. You can always remove the seals later on after clearing some quests, so the most important thing is to find a weapon with a high starting damage value. To get your hands on one of these powerful weapons, you should try taking on whatever challenge is available to you with the highest recommended level.

List of Challenges

Use the character who you want to farm weapons for

Links Weapons.jpg

The character you use in battle will be able to obtain the most weapons from drops, so play the challenge as the character you want to farm for. Even in battles where you use multiple characters, primarily play as the character you want to farm weapons for to get the most for them.

The best way to get many weapons for fusing onto another weapon is to play challenges that have a short clear time. Ideally, you want to take on challenges that can be done in under three minutes.

Do battles with many powerful foes

Unnatural Disaster.jpg

Going into missions with many Powerful Foes (like Moblins, Lynels, and Guardians) is the best way to get many weapons in one go. Smaller foes will rarely drop weapons, so we recommend missions where the goal is to take down powerful key enemies.

List of Challenges

Use weapons with seals that improve quality of found weapons

Improve Quality of Found Weapons.jpg

If you're able to find it, there is a seal that actually improves the quality of found weapons. Stacking these seals onto a single weapon is a very efficient way to farm for better weapons!

Weapon Fusion Guide: How to Transfer Weapon Skills

Use the character whose weapon you want to enhance

Links Weapons.jpg

Weapons are all exclusive to a single character. Even characters like Link and Mipha, who can both use Spears, cannot fuse weapons with each other. So if you want to enhance a particular character's weapon, you'll need to play through these missions as them!
