Location and Uses
Hyrule Compendium Entry
Thunderstorm Rods are one-handed Weapons. They are superior counterparts to Lightning Rods. Thunderstorm Rods are not made of flammable materials and can safely be used around open flames or Scorching Climates. Thunderstorm Rods are also not made of magnetic materials and cannot be manipulated with Magnesis. Thunderstorm Rods do not conduct electricity, and will float in sufficiently deep bodies of water. Thunderstorm Rods are imbued with Electric elemental energy, generating three balls of lightning that advance when swung. However, Thunderstorm Rods are fragile and will break easily if they make direct contact with objects or enemies. Thunderstorm Rods will also break simply from extended use. If Link executes a Spin Attack while wielding a Thunderstorm Rod, he will loose eight blasts at once in different directions. When thrown with the R button, Thunderstorm Rods will not leave Link's hand and instead produce three balls of lightning that will advance in the direction they are thrown. Thunderstorm Rods will temporarily lose their magical properties if used excessively, requiring a brief cooldown period before they can be used again.
