Should You Get Heart Containers Or Stamina Vessels?

Prioritize The Stamina Vessel


The Stamina Wheel is needed in various situations such as running, paragliding, and cliff climbing. Therefore, strengthening the Stamina Vessel will make exploration a lot easier. For those who want to play games comfortably it is recommended to prioritize the Stamina Wheel.

First Upgrade Event Is Automatically A Heart Vessel

At the end of Great Sky Island, there will be an event that will let you upgrade with the Goddess Statue. This event will automatically strengthen Hearts so upgrading the stamina will come after this event.

Obtain The Master Sword With 2 Stamina Wheels

In order to get the Master Sword, you'll need 2 full stamina wheels. Prioritizing the Stamina Vessels will get you closer to the best weapon.

Master Sword - How To Get

Increase The Heart Container Based On Your Ability

In the early stages of the game, you may have a hard time during battles due to the low amount of Hearts. But once you get used to the controls, you won't need as many hearts to defeat the bosses. The bosses also give you Heart Containers, so it is more efficient to prioritize the Stamina Vessels.

Trade Hearts And Stamina Through The Horned Statue

Hearts and Stamina Can Be Traded


The Heart Container and Stamina Vessel can be replaced through the Horned Statue. You can exchange one for 100 Rupees and then you can get either the Stamina Vessel or Heart Container for 120 rupees, meaning the actual cost will be 20 rupees.

The Horned Statue Can Be Reached From The Shelter

The Horned Statue can be reached from the Royal Hidden Passage located in the Emergency Shelter at Lookout Landing.

Complete At Least 1 Temple To Access The Royal Hidden Passage

To access the Royal Hidden Passage which leads to the Horned Statue, you need to complete one of the four Temples. Once you complete one of the Temples, go to the shelter and you will find an opening in the wall that leads to the Horned Statue.
