List of Contents
|This enormous monster is naturally camouflaged as a rock formation. Neither sword nor arrow can pierce its stony form, but a cunning adventurer knows to scale its body and attack the ore sprouting from its peak.|
|Illumeni Plateau||Central Hyrule|
|Hopper Pond||Central Hyrule|
|South Nabi Lake||Necluda|
|Cliffs of Quince||Necluda|
|Dueling Peaks (North)||Necluda|
|Dueling Peaks (South)||Necluda|
The locations shown here are the closest ones that are labelled on the map. The enemy's precise location may be slightly different, so it is best to go to the location named above, then turn on your sensor to try and find the enemy.
Exploit the Stone Talus's weak point, which is the ore deposit on top of its body. Use a Bow and target its ore to stun it for 2-3 seconds. Take that chance to climb its body and attack the ore.
We recommend using a Hammer weapon and then use a charged attack on the ore to deal more damage against it. If you already have Urbosa's Fury, it can be charged to instantly kill the Stone Talus.

Stone Talus has only one attack: to throw its stone arms on Link. This attack covers a very wide range, so be sure to sprint to your left or right to evade the attack.
After losing its arms, it will stop and recover them. It will give you a small window to climb its body and wither down its HP. Make sure to climb from its back to prevent yourself from getting hurt as he gets a new pair of arms.
Alternatively, you can use Remote Bombs to destroy its arms. These are especially useful if you want to save your arrows for an easy stun.
It is not recommended to parry the stones as they can still hurt Link. Even if the parry is perfect, the debris from the stone can still hit and damage Link. We highly suggest that you evade the attack and wait for an opportunity to attack back.
