Inventory Guide - Upgrade Priority

WeaponHigh Priority
- Having multiple weapons expands your combat options.
- The new Fuse system will also be more fun to use.
BowMedium Priority
- You can prioritize upgrading this 1 to 2 times.
- After prioritizing weapons, and upgrade this as much as you need.
ShieldLow Priority
- You can prioritize upgrading this 1 to 2 times.
- Upgrade once done with Bows

Upgrade Weapons With The Highest Priority

Compared to shields and bows, you will often have full inventory for weapon. This is why it is highly recommended that you upgrade your weapons inventory. Also, the more weapons you possess, the more fighting options you can choose from. In addition, you can utilize the new feature "Fuse" and further expand your battle style.

Fuse Guide - How To Unlock & Use

You Can Upgrade Bows & Shields Inventory Once or Twice

In the first and second upgrades, the amount of Korok Seed needed is minimal so it is okay to use Korok Seeds to upgrade Bow and Shield once or twice. After doing so, it is recommended to prioritize enhancing the inventory of weapons and then bows. You would not need to store many shields so it is okay to lessen its priority.

Adjust According To Your Playstyle

The above-mentioned are only recommendations, and it is still up to you whether to follow them or focus on your playstyle in game. Shields are used in large quantities especially to practice dodging/guarding, so it is also an option to upgrade your shield inventory.

What To Do When Your Inventory Is Full?

Discard Items You Don't Need

Picking up weapons, bows, and other items that are scattered around the area quickly fills up the inventory. If you are unable to pick up the desired equipment, try removing and discarding unnecessary items from your inventory. When discarding items, simply select the item you want to get rid of and choose the option "Remove" or "Drop" to do so.

Use Extra Items As Fuse Materials

Fuse the materials

The new feature introduced in this game, called "Fuse," allows you to combine weapons with other materials to transform them into brand new weapons. Equipment is no exception, so you will be able to free up inventory slot if you combine unnecessary equipment and weapons. Keep in mind that you cannot fuse items that have already been fused, so be cautious.

Collect Korok Seeds To Expand Your Inventory

You can obtain Korok Seeds from Koroks you may find located throughout the various regions. By giving a certain number of Korok Seeds to Hestu, you can expand the maximum capacity of your weapon, bow, and shield inventory pouches. You can own a wide variety of equipment and items by expanding as needed.
