The Hero's Sword Strategy Points
Get 13 Hearts To Pull Out The Master Sword!
In order to pull out Master Sword, Link's Hearts cannot be removed without 13 or more. If you don't have enough, visit shrines and collect Spirit Orbs.
Hearts Increase Due To Cooking Is Not Valid
Using food buffs that temporarily increases Link's hearts is not valid. It is necessary to have at least 13 Hearts of Link in its normal state.
Korok Forest Has 4 Shrines
There are 4 shrines in Korok Forest on which you can get a Spirit Orb on each shrine to gain 1 Heart. If Link's Hearts is not enough, it is recommended to clear it while stopping by Korok Forest. Be sure to activate the shrine in the center, which can also be used as a warp location. The remaining three can be conquered in a Side Quest called The Korok Trials.
