‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,’ Mipha’s Lightscale Trident, and How to Obtain or Repair the Champion’s Weapon
Nintendo created the Champions in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mipha, Daruk, Urbosa, and Revali. However, since they all died previously to the start of BOTW, players did not have many ways to interact with these new characters. However, after helping the Zora, Prince Sidon, and King Dorephan, Link can get a little closer to Champion Mipha. Here’s how to obtain or repair Mipha’s Lightscale Trident in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
How to obtain Mipha’s Lightscale Trident in ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’
Luckily, the path to obtaining Mipha’s Lightscale Trident in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild lets players kill two birds with one stone. Link can receive the item shortly after defeating Divine Beast Vah Ruta.
After venturing to Zora’s Domain with Prince Sidon, King Dorephan pleads with Link to stop the rain Vah Ruta creates before it floods and washes away the Zora homeland. This is similar to how other Divine Beasts, like Vah Rudania, threaten the lands of Hyrule’s races.
After Link defeats Waterblight Ganon, he can return to the throne room where King Dorephan and Prince Sidon wait.
As a reward for freeing the Divine Beast Vah Ruta, the king and Mipha’s former teacher, Muzu, present Link with a treasure chest with the Lightscale Trident.
While it proves to be a powerful lancing weapon, the trident still suffers the same durability as every weapon in the game (apart from the Master Sword). However, if Link breaks it, players can reforge the weapon.
How to get the Zora Dento to repair Mipha’s Lightscale Trident in ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’
If Link overuses Mipha’s Lightscale Trident in Breath of the Wild, it breaks. Luckily, he is told that the Zora Dento can help.
Dento operates from his workshop, the Hammerhead, located behind Marot Mart in Zora’s Domain. He says he can reforge the weapon if Link brings him a Zora Spear, a diamond, and five pieces of flint.
If Link leaves King Dorephan and Prince Sidon in the throne room, a Zora Spear can be found in the water behind the stairs that Link can obtain with Magnesis. Another one appears in a Treasure Chest of the Ne’ez Yohma Shrine in Zora’s Domain.
With all the items, return to Dento. He warns Link about how rarely diamonds appear in Breath of the Wild, and after confirming, Dento crafts Link a brand new Lightscale Trident.
Some players might not want to part with an item as rare as the Twilight Bow, though.
The Ceremonial Trident is weaker, but easier to reforge with Dento’s help
Diamonds can prove difficult to come by, so you may not want to cough one up to repair Mipha’s Lightscale Trident in Breath of the Wild.
Luckily, the game has an alternative.
In “The Ceremonial Song” shrine quest for the Dagah Keek Shrine, Link can obtain the Ceremonial Trident. It looks identical to Mipha’s Lightscale Trident and does not require a diamond to reforge. Dento only needs the five flint and Zora Spear.
However, It has a much lower attack and durability. It does not serve as much offensive power in The Legend of Zelda game. For those who want it for aesthetic or display, the item made with less rare materials proves the better option.
