Master Sword Lv2
The Master Sword Lv3, also known as the Golden Sword in A Link to the Past, is a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series. It is the ultimate upgrade to the Master Sword and thus the strongest Sword in the games it appears in.
Location and Uses
A Link to the Past
The Master Sword Lv3 was known as the Golden Sword in A Link to the Past. To obtain it, Link must throw the Tempered Sword into the Mysterious Pond of the Dark World within the Pyramid of Power. As a result, the Cursed Fairy will transform it into the Golden Sword. It has a golden blade, green hilt, and is usually eight times stronger than the Fighter's Sword. In the Game Boy Advance version of the game, it also has the ability to break Jars and skulls.
A Link Between Worlds
In A Link Between Worlds, the Master Sword Lv3 is the Master Sword at its maximum strength. It is obtained similarly to the Master Sword Lv2, with two pieces of Master Ore, but they must be taken to the Blacksmith at the Blacksmith's Forge in Lorule.
Ancient Stone Tablets
In Ancient Stone Tablets, the Sword is known as the LV4 Sword. When the Hero of Light draws the Master Sword from the Lost Woods, they obtain it at this power level from the start, due to it being strengthened to this state by Link prior to the events of the game. When obtained, the rental Shops will no longer offer a higher level.
