Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom: The Best Weapon And Shield Combos You Can Make Early Game

The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is now available for Nintendo Switch, the enormous adventure with hundreds of secrets, collectibles and things to discover, in which it is easy to get lost or feel overwhelmed.

Therefore, to help you in these first steps, we are going to tell you what are the best combinations of weapons and shields that you can create in Zelda Tears of the Kingdomthanks to one of the new abilities that the game introduces.

Along with the ultramano, the combination is one of the new powers that we get in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom and more specifically during the first hours of the game, which are like a huge tutorial on one of the islands that float over Hyrule.

In this way, thanks to the combination you can fuse weapons, shields and objects to obtain different results, be it weapons with additional effects, with a longer range or with more capacity to deal damage.

but what are they the best combinations of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom And which ones can be more useful during the first hours of the game? That is exactly what we are going to talk about in this guide.

However, it doesn’t hurt to know a couple more things about fusion that you may have overlooked. In order to determine the attack power of a combination with an item, look in your inventory and whenever possible the stat should appear under the item’s name.

If you want to use an item from your inventory, you can always drop it on the ground and start the combo and if you need to remove or replace an item from a combo, go to your inventory and on the fused weapon, shield or bow, choose the option ” destroy the combined material”.

Best weapon combinations you can create in Tears of the Kingdom (early game)

In the early stages of the adventure, try to always carry some of the following combinations of weapons and items, as they will be very useful in combat.

  • Stones or rocks: to get ore, break obstacles. If you combine them with spears or broadswords, all the better.
  • Spiked metal balls: very useful in combat, thanks to its +15 damage
  • Lances with spears (or halberds) – to get a longer range
  • Zonnan Weapons with Zonnan Gadgets: If a Zonnan weapon has in its description “resonates with Zonnan Gadgets to increase their attack power” combine it with one to improve its performance.
  • Gems (Rubies, Sapphires, and Topaz): One of the best fusions in the game, thanks to the elemental properties of the gems (fire, ice, and electricity). In combination, normal attacks launch projectiles
  • Evil Aura Weapons: Later in the game, you will be able to get this type of weapon from some bosses (we will not say anything to avoid spoilers). They are weapons with a peculiarity: they take life from you. But if you use them as material (ie attaching them to a stick, sword or whatever), they won’t have that effect.

Best combinations with shields that you can create at the beginning

  • Shields with Shields: Increases the amount of damage they can take before destroying themselves.
  • Shields with Zonnan Mechanisms (Springs and Bombs): Allows you to use the shield to climb up and, for example, perform slow-motion archery on places where there are no platforms. Always carry some, because it can be really useful.
  • Attaching items that automatically emit fire or another elemental affinity is less recommended, as it progressively deteriorates the shield.
