Quick Equip is an ability in A Link Between Worlds.


Ravio first tells Link about the Quick Equip ability after the young hero obtains all three Pendants of Virtue. He explains that to use the Quick Equip, Link needs to touch and hold over the X and Y button icons on the bottom screen, which will cause the Quick Equip to open. Once open, Link can quickly scroll through the listed items to retrieve the one he wants without opening the Item Select screen.[1]

Later, Ravio will give the young hero even more advice for using the Quick Equip, such as how to use the "slider" option to filter what items are available for the Quick Equip. Ravio explains that when the slider is moved to the rightmost portion of the item select screen, only four items are available to select with Quick Equip. When moved to the left, it can include up to 8, 12, 16 and 20 possible item options, though Ravio recommends only using it for the items that Link uses the most.[2][3]

  1. "I've got more big news for you. Top secret. Kind of thing only ol' Ravio knows. Want to hear it? Don't know why I'm asking. Just going to keep talking anyway. It's a little something I like to call... Quick Equip! You know, for swapping items out on the fly? Press your equipped items to use Quick Equip. Easy enough to do, even while you're running around. Of course, you can always take your sweet time thinking about each and every item you want to use. In that case, it's better to just keep using the Items button. Here endeth the lesson! So take Quick Equip for a spin sometime." — Ravio (A Link Between Worlds)
  2. "Well, keep it up. I actually got another Quick Equip tip for you. See the slider on the item-selection screen? You guessed it--you can sliiiide the slider left and right. Mind taking a look at the lower screen? See how the size of the blue frame is changing? That shows how many items you have ready for Quick Equip. For example, let's say you want only the items you use the most to show up in Quick Equip. In that case, set the slider to the far right to highlight just four items and then put your fave four there! But if you want to have more than four items in Quick Equip, just move the slider toward the left. Be sure to try it out. See what works best for you! All right. That's all the information I've got for ya today!" — Ravio (A Link Between Worlds)
  3. "It's tricky stuff, but it could make all the difference out there. So don't forget to give the slider a try." — Ravio (A Link Between Worlds)
