Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity features 18 playable characters who all come with different fighting styles and abilities. Each character can also use a unique selection of weapons, which can be more effective depending on the build and the situation.
Although all weapons in the game can be used to complete the main campaign with ease, there are some which are clearly above the others. If you want to dominate the battlefields of Hyrule, these are the weapons you should get.
Link’s best weapon is, unsurprisingly, the Master Sword. This weapon, which is obtained automatically during the main campaign, becomes even more useful as the game proceeds, as you will unlock its potential through new Seals. As such, Damage at Full Hearts is probably the best Seal you can get for the weapon, as it lets Link deals very high damage in conjunction with the Sword Beam ability.
Impa’s best weapon is the Devoted Kodachi. This weapon can be obtained as a random drop in chapters 5-7. To make the weapon even better, make sure to add Seals that increase the Attack Speed and Regular and Special Attack damage. As Impa’s main ability is to unleash her clones, these Seals will help her deal more damage more quickly.
Zelda’s best weapons are the Ancient Overclock Unit and the Sealing Bow. Given how good the Strong-Attack is when wielding Sheika Slates, you may want to get a Strong-Attack Damage seal on the weapons. The Sealing Bow, on the other hand, benefits the most from an Attack Speed increase Seal or a Special-Attack Charge Rate increase Seal.
Mipha’s best weapon is the Lightscale Trident. As the character’s main strength lies in exposing enemies’ weak points, you want to make her regular attacks faster with the Attack Speed increase Seal.
Daruk hits hard, and can hit even harder using the Boulder Breaker weapon. As he is very slow, however, any Seal that increases Attack Speed will make it easier for him to keep enemies stunned with his attacks.
Urbosa’s best weapon is the Scimitar of the Seven. Since her lighting attack is so good, you may want to make it even more effective by getting Strong Attack Damage increase Seals. Increasing the speed of her attacks is also a very good choice, although not as effective.
Revali’s air combat capabilities are made even better with the Great Eagle Bow and Midair Attack Damage increase Seal. An Attack Speed increase Seal also works great.
Hetsu becomes a force to be reckoned with thanks to the Shakalaka Maracas and a Strong Attack Damage increase Seal, as this Seal powers up his already amazing combo finishers. Always make sure to summon as many Koroks as possible for maximum efficacy.
The Extravagant Bangles are the best weapons for the Great Fairies. Given how fast they are, increasing the speed and the damage of all attacks with the respective Seals is a good way to make them even stronger.
Monk Maz Koshia
Monk Maz Koshia needs to create relics to make his attacks more effective, so using the Bands of Truth weapon combined with Attack Speed and Damage increase Seals will make him a powerhouse that can clear battlefields with ease.
Sidon’s best weapon is the Ceremonial Trident combined with Seals that increase his Strong Attack Damage and Speed.
Yunobo best weapon is the Rock Roast Flambé. As the character is very strong, but also very slow, increasing the Attack Speed is extremely important to actually let him unleash his finishers without getting interrupted by the enemy.
Riju’s fast dashing attack is made better by the Bridle of the Seven weapon and a Dash-Attack Damage Seal. If you want to make her dashing attack even better, you can also get an Attack Speed increase Seal for the weapon.
Teba relies mostly on his strong attacks for damage so make sure to get a Strong Attack Damage increase seal for the Falcon Bow, his best weapon.
Master Kohga’s best weapon is the Demon Carver, which is made more effective with Attack Speed increase and Strong Attack Damage increase seals. This will let you unleash his powerful blasts more frequently and also deal more damage with them.
King Rhoam’s Royal Claymore weapon is made even better with a Strong Attack Damage increase seal. The character can unleash two strong attacks consecutively, so making them more effective is the way to go.
Terrako’s Gear of the Protector becomes even better with an Attack Speed increase seal, since the character is all about crowd control with strong attacks, which can also be made more effective with the Strong Attack Damage increase seal.
Calamity Ganon Heart of Annihilation best weapon is made better by the Attack Speed increase seal, as it lets him create more Malice and enter Calamity form more often.
