Trial of the Sword
|Game(s)||Breath of the Wild|
|Quest Reward(s)||Permanently awakened Master Sword|
The Trial of the Sword is a challenge in Breath of the Wild added in the Expansion Pass DLC Pack 1.
The Trial of the Sword can be accessed from the Korok Forest by placing the Master Sword in its pedestal. During the challenge, Link must defeat every enemy in a room to proceed to the next one. At the start of the trial, he is stripped from all of his equipment and weapons. After completing all 45 rooms, the Master Sword awakens its true power, allowing it to stay in its powered-up state while usable.
- The Trial of the Sword was originally called the Cave of Trials during the Expansion Pass announcement.
- "When you get to a certain sacred location, you can take on the new "Trial of the Sword" challenge. Face an onslaught of enemies, one wave after another. Link starts the challenge without any equipment or weapons. When all the enemies in a room are defeated, Link proceeds to the next. Clear all the trials (about 45 rooms in total), and the true power of the Master Sword awakens." — Expansion Pass DLC Pack 1 Detailed, Zelda.com, retrieved May 1, 2017.
