The Mirror Shield is one of the many items that has made a return in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. This particular shield has made an appearance in several other Zelda titles, and players once again can use it in Hyrule. However, the process to acquire the Mirror Shield has changed dramatically in the newest iteration of the series. Luckily, this new process makes the shield much more attainable in Tears of the Kingdom.
If you want to know exactly how to get your hands on the Mirror Shield in Tears of the Kingdom, I will explain all of the steps to do so in the guide below.
Getting the Mirror Shield in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Instead of a long-winded quest or going through a dungeon, all you need to do to get the Mirror Shield is make use of the Link’s Fuse ability. That’s right, the Mirror Shield is a Fused item in Tears of the Kingdom, meaning pretty much any player can acquire the shield if they spend a few minutes getting the correct parts.
To make the shield, all you will need is a Zonai Mirror and a regular Shield. The Zonai Mirror is extremely easy to find, as they are found all over the ground of Shrines. You can also use Zonai Device Dispensers to produce Zonai Mirrors. Be careful, though, as not all dispensers have Zonai Mirrors available.
Once you have your Zonai Mirror and a regular Shield, you can Fuse them together to create the Mirror Shield. This shield has a base defense stat of 50 and is capable of deflecting magical attacks and redirecting light to harm enemies. You can also deflect the attacks right back at enemies with a well-timed parry, so the Mirror Shield will certainly have its uses in Tears of the Kingdom.
You can keep on creating Mirror Shields if one breaks, so make sure you always keep a Zonai Mirror in your inventory.
