In Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players can’t just rely on a single tactic to get them through the game. Spamming a sword attack, relying on turtling incoming blows with a shield, or trying to cheese your way through the game isn’t entirely possible due to weapon degradation. However, there are a couple of weapons you can get your hands on that don’t just break and go away.
YouTuber FantasticalGamer put together a quick three minute video showing gamers how to get their hands on permanent weapons in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. You can check out the video below.
He explains that when you first go to Zora’s Domain, on the bottom floor to the right there’s an NPC named Dento that will be able to repair the two legendary tridents. However, before he will be of aid to you, you first have to complete the Divine Beast quest and cleanse Vah Ruta while completing the dungeon.
Upon completing the quest you’ll get the Lightscale Trident. Dento will offer to repair the Ceremonial Trident and the Lightscale Trident if you have them in your inventory. You’ll need 5 flint, 1 diamond and a Zora spear.
You can get a Zora spear from in the shrine dungeon where you get the spirit orb.
You can get your hands on the Ceremonial Trident on the circular pathway in the Zora’s Domain. The location is marked on the map in the image below.
When you get to that location, create two ice blocks and then use the magnet on the water and pull the Ceremonial Spear from out of the water.
Now the reason these two weapons are considered perma weapons is because you can keep repairing them. They do break, but since you can go to Dento and have them repaired, you can keep them for as long as you want, opposite of some other weapons that break and disappear from your inventory.
So they’re not permanent in the way that they don’t ever break, but they are permanent in the way that they don’t disappear on you and you can repair them and keep using them so long as you have the materials and you completed the Vah Ruta quest.
