Available Pristine Weapons

Best Weapons List & How To Get

Requires Destroying The Original Decayed Weapon First

In order to obtain the Pristine (non-decayed) Weapons, it is necessary to destroy the decayed weapons once, which are obtained mainly from the Surface. For example, destroying the Royal Broadsword obtained from the Surface allows you to obtain a non-decayed Royal Broadsword from a Shadow Soldier.

Weapon Types & Weapons Are Predetermined For Each Statue

The weapon type and specific weapon that can be acquired are predetermined for each Shadow Soldier on the map. However, there are Shadow Soldiers that do not offer the Royal Broadsword or Royal Guard's Sword even if they are Sword statues. Refer to the map tool to find the right one!

How Shadow Soldiers Respawn & How To Reroll

Shadow Soldier Will Respawn During Blood-Stained Moons

The Shadow Soldier will respawn when the Blood-stained Moon occurs. This means you can repeatedly obtain the Pristine Weapons you want during the Blood Moons. The Blood Moon event occurs at 12:00AM after 7 days in-game time.

Shadow Soldier - How To Reroll For Weapons

Reroll For Pristine Weapons
  1. Save the game at a location where the Shadow Soldier is not visible
  2. Get the weapon from the Shadow Soldier and Load til you get the desired weapon

Save At A Location Where The Shadow Soldier Is Not Visible

To reroll the Shadow Soldier's weapon, you need to save in a situation where the Shadow Soldier is not visible. The Shadow Soldiers are usually placed on a pile of stones, so it is best to save where only the pile of stones can be seen from a distance.

▼ Shadow Soldier is visible when you get somewhat close to it

The Shadow Soldier will be visible when you get close to it. If there is a weapon you aim for, find a save location carefully because it may be visible at a greater distance than expected.

If It Is Not The Weapon You Are Looking For, Load It

If you do not get the weapon you are looking for from Shadow Soldier, you can reroll it by loading the data you just saved. However, there is a possibility that you may have passed through the area where the statue is visible without noticing it, and the weapon is determined at that time.

▼ Still get the weapon even it is determined

If the Shadow Soldier's weapon is determined after rerolling, you can reset the weapon by obtaining it once and then waiting for a Blood-stained moon.

▼ No need to reroll additional effects

Pristine Weapons have additional effects, but these effects can be rerolled later using Rock Octorok. Therefore, you only need to obtain the weapons you want from the Shadow Soldier.

What Is Shadow Soldier?

A Shadow Soldier Holding A Weapon In The Depths

A Shadow Soldier is a shadow of a soldier on a rock in the Depths. Every Shadow Soldier on the map stands with a weapon, and you can obtain that weapon by approaching it.

Can Get Pristine Weapons

Pristine (Non-decayed) Weapons are available from Shadow Soldiers. The non-decayed weapons have higher attack power and durability than the weapons of the same name available from the Surface and other locations. However, only a part of weapons have non-decayed version.

For me it seemed to drop only weapons of the region above, like Zora Weapons underneath Zoras domain and Gerudo weapons underneath the desert. Not confirmed, needs testing.

I tap on each location and no list of the possible pristine weapons appear. Seems pretty useless since I am trying to get specific weapons.
