Rock Octoroks are the most useful enemies in The Legend of Zelda: TOTK as they can repair your weapons in seconds! Here’s where to find them:

If you’re having issues with weapon durability in Tears of the Kingdom, you’re not alone. The BOTW sequel didn’t improve on the game’s biggest issue (namely, the fact that your blades will shatter after just a few swings) but it did give us a solution to the problem.

Now, if you’ve got a high-value weapon and you don’t want it to break, all you need to do is seek out a Rock Octorok.

Best Rock Octorok Locations in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Rock Octoroks are primarily found in the northeast of Hyrule, around Goron City in Zelda TOTK.

If you’re looking to use the Tears of the Kingdom weapon repair trick, you’ll want to start out at Sibajitak Shrine, just north of Death Mountain (Coordinates: 2399, 3273, 0402).

Note: Do NOT forget to dismiss all of your Sages using their Vows in your Key Items inventory. Octoroks will die in a single hit, so the last thing you want to happen is for Tulin to hit one with an arrow while it’s repairing your weapon for you.

  • It will then spit the weapon back at you, at full health. Be sure to block!

Note: Each Rock Octorok can only repair a single weapon for you in TOTK! After they’ve repaired your sword, simply defeat the enemy and wait for the next one to spawn at the next Blood Moon to reset the process.

Also, special weapons such as unique amiibo weapons cannot be repaired in this manner. However, by dropping the weapon and Fusing it to another item, you’ll be able to trick the Octorok into repairing it anyway!
