Master Sword Lv3
The Master Sword Lv2, also known as the Tempered Sword in A Link to the Past, is a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series. It is an upgrade to the Master Sword preceding the Master Sword Lv3 and is the second strongest Sword in both A Link to the Past and A Link Between Worlds.
Location and Uses
A Link to the Past
The Master Sword Lv2 was known as the Tempered Sword in A Link to the Past. Link can obtain it by taking the Dwarven Swordsmith trapped in the Dark World back to his brother in the Light World to the Smithery east of Kakariko Village. As a token of gratitude, the brothers will upgrade the young hero's Master Sword. However, the forging process takes time and Link is forced to leave his Sword with them and wait. During this time, Link can perform the action of swinging a blade without one in his possession, but cannot deal damage to enemies this way. Link must use items if he wishes to defeat enemies before retrieving the Tempered Sword.
Tempering the Master Sword makes it much stronger, gives it a reddish-orange glow, and causes it to make a deeper swing sound as opposed to the usual slash sound. It is four times stronger than the Fighter's Sword, but the Beam Attack still retains its original power and continues to do so even as the Sword is upgraded again.
A Link Between Worlds
In A Link Between Worlds, the Master Sword Lv2 is obtained by bringing two pieces of Master Ore to Hyrule's Blacksmith at the Blacksmith's Forge. It is three times more powerful than the Forgotten Sword. Its Sword Beams are 1.5 times more powerful.

The Swordsmiths will gladly temper the Master Sword for a paltry sum. By the time this happens, Link will have done them a huge favor." (The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Nintendo Player's Guide (Nintendo), pg. 142)
