One of the most exciting features of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the range of powerful weapons available to Link, from physical weapons like hammers and blades to magical and elemental weapons. If you’re looking to add some extra firepower to your arsenal, keep reading for a guide on how to obtain the Magic Scepter in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

How to Get the Magic Scepter in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The Magic Scepter is an incredibly powerful weapon, boasting an impressive attack rating of seven. But how do you find it? Your best bet is to track down one of the special treasure chests that contain the scepter. The first and easiest place to look is in the Mayahisik Shrine. The location of the shrine is located below the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab, in Retsam Forest Cave outside Hateno Village. You can see the location of the shrine in the screenshot below:

You’ll be directed to the Mayahisik Shrine by Robbie, who will lead you to the treasure chest as part of his Sensor+ mission. The shrine is a Rauru’s Blessing location, so it’s easy to find and claim any prizes waiting for you inside. If you need a second Magic Scepter, look for the chest in the Rasiwak Shrine. The location of the shrine is indicated in the screenshot below. Go to the northeast corner, just north of the Ancient Tech Lab. From there, descend the steep cliff to the beach and find the shrine.

Inside the shrine, you’ll need to cross a body of water using two balls and a slab. Along one of the walls, a treasure chest hangs from a rope. To get the Magic Rod, shoot down the chest with an arrow and retrieve it from the water. Beyond these two locations, it is possible to find the Magic Scepter in chests hidden in other shrines, although I have not done so myself.

If you’ve obtained the Magic Scepter at least once, you can also purchase it from Bargainer Statues in the Depths. However, it will cost you 100 Poes. While it may not be cheap, it’s certainly worth investing in this powerful weapon.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be purchased from the Nintendo Store. Happy hunting!
