Nintendo has distributed more free in-game items to those playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, available through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tips from the Wild News channel on Nintendo Switch.
After early articles explained how you can befriend the dogs that you encounter, how to make Honey Candy, mucking around with the boomerang, tips on how to shield surf, and restoring rusted weapons, game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has now touched on the differences in Guardian colours in Link’s open-air adventure.
“Today’s tip is about Guardian colours!” Fujibayashi writes. “In DLC Pack 2, The Champions’ Ballad, you’ll encounter Guardians that, rather than the usual pink, glow with an orange light. What you might not realise is that these are Guardians which have not fallen prey to Calamity Ganon’s corrupting influence.
“The Guardians that dwell within certain shrines have always had this orange glow. That’s because they were placed there by monks for the purpose of training, and escaped corruption, faithfully carrying out their duty to the last.
“If you open the game using the link below [on your Nintendo Switch], you’ll find two Ancient Screws, an Ancient Shaft, and an Arrow – everything you need to create an Ancient Arrow, which you can use to fell a Guardian in your hour of need. Just make sure that you either have the game card inserted or the downloadable version of the software installed on your console.”
Nintendo once again adds that you must have obtained the paraglider before you can receive these items and that you may not be able to receive them at some in-game locations such as shrines and dungeons or on certain terrain.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch and Wii U worldwide.
