The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

Shields have always been an integral part of the gear Link brings with him in all The Legend of Zelda games. Thanks to them, our hero can take on the strongest of enemies without fear, as shields let him block attacks and even parry them to unleash swift counterattacks that can make short work of any evil minion.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, like past games, features different shields for Link to find. Here’s where to find all of them.

How to Get All Shields in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

Wooden Shield

Wooden Shield Upgrades

The Wooden Shield can also be upgraded into the Banded Shield and the Braced Shield with the right materials and 50 and 100 Rupees respectively.
