I’ve recently been live-streaming over on Twitch, and started playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild again. And it’s been nine months since the last time I played, but I finally got back to it. And have every intention of finishing the game. The other day, I just finished Divine Beast Vah Naboris. This is the last Divine Beast I had left to defeat/handle in the game. It’s also probably the hardest of the divine beasts.
Vah Naboris is located in the far southwest of Hyrule in Gerudo Town. The Champion of this beast was Urbosa, the Gerudo chieftain but fell to Thunderblight Ganon. This Divine Beast has been causing terrible sandstorms in the area. In order to handle the climate, you’ll need heat resistance during the day and cold resistance during the night. If you’ve already done Vah Medoh, you’ll have the Snowquill Armor for night. During the day; however, you’ll need to get the Gerudo clothing for 600 rupees from a man at the Kara Kara Bazaar. This gear cannot be upgraded, and you have to be wearing it in order to get into Gerudo Town as males are not allowed in.
Before you can face Vah Naboris, you need to get the Thunder Helm back from the Yiga Clan. This area requires stealth as if you are caught by the guards it is a one shot kill. You might want to get the Stealth Armor from Kakariko Village:
- Stealth Chest Guard: 700 rupees
- Stealth Tights: 600 rupees
- Stealth Mask: 500 rupees
Bananas are your other best friend in the Yiga Clan Hideout, as the guards will run to them. Allowing you to distract them long enough to sneak around them. Once you get to the boss fight, it’s fairly straight forward and the boss is a goofball. Just shoot him with arrows, so his boulders hit him on the head.
After returning the Thunder Helm to Riju in Gerudo Town, you’ll start heading after Vah Naboris. You’ll need to use sand seal and bomb arrows to shoot the feet of the Divine Beast. Each foot needs to be shot twice with the bomb arrows. Make sure you keep within the bubble as it will protect Link from the lightning otherwise you might have to restart the section… and there’s no skipping the cutscenes and dialogue if you end up dying.
Inside of Naboris there are 5 terminals and 12 chests. In order to get through this Divine Beast, you’ll rotate the three center pieces at 90 degrees. When you rotate all of the cylinders together to make a solid line, this will form a circuit that moves the head of Naboris. You’ll also need to make use of Magnesis in order to make your way around.
Once you activate all five terminals, return to the main control unit in the middle section to face Thunderblight Ganon. Having the rubber suit would be useful so you don’t lose your weapons or die quickly. The first phase of Thunderblight Ganon, block and attack. You have to chip away his shield until it breaks then you’ll start dealing damage. Once you’re halfway through his health, this will trigger the second phase. Make use of magnesis to pick up the metal pillars he sends at you. After it’s been hit by lightning, move the pillar towards Thunderblight Ganon. This will bring him down to the ground where you can attack him similar to how the first phase went.
Once defeated, you’ll get a heart container and Urbosa’s Fury. Which will call down a lightning strike around you when you hold Y. After return to Gerudo Town and speak with Riju. You’ll get two teasure chests on completion that contain Scimitar of the Seven and the Daybreaker shield.
If the Scimitar of the Seven ever breaks, it can be replaced by Buliara in Gerudo Town with one Diamond, five Flint, and a Gerudo Scimitar.
What did you think of Thunderblight Ganon compared to the other Divine Beasts?
