HOW TO GET READY FOR THE GANON BOSS FIGHT IN THUNDERBLIGHT

24

Put on your rubber tights before you start fighting Thunderblight Ganon. They shield you from lightning damage, which is enough for this fight.

Rubber tights can be obtained through the Serpent’s Jaws shrine quest if you don’t already have them. It will make dealing with Thunderblight Ganon’s lightning-based attacks a lot easier. You can also make yourself some meals or elixirs that improve your resistance to lightning damage.

Finally, as always, read our Hearty Durians guide to earn up to 20 extra (temporary) hearts. They are extremely useful in boss encounters.

PHASE 1 OF THE THUNDERBLIGHT GANON

Thunderblight Ganon’s lightning-fast movements and actual lightning assaults are featured in the early phase of the fight. Block and attack are the two strategies you must perform.

It’s simple to defend against his strikes. Simply lock on. If you are electrocuted and your shield or weapon is dropped, pick it up right away. And then attack him as soon as you’ve finished blocking. Your assaults will chip away at his shield until it breaks, but it won’t deal any damage at first.

We fought using the Master Sword, which we believe chipped away at his shield faster than other weapons. Check out our method on obtaining the Master Sword if you don’t already have it. Alternatively, you can use one of the weapons you earned by fighting guardian scouts across Vah Naboris.

Stay locked on but back away from him when he floats up high to shoot shimmering lightning orbs at you. It’s a lot easier to avoid those orbs now.

PHASE 2 OF THE THUNDERBLIGHT GANON

The second phase of the fight  begins in a different way than the first, but it concludes in the same way.

Thunderblight Ganon summons metal pillars, drives them into the earth near you, and then strikes them with lightning. If you get too close, you’ll be struck by lightning. However,  you want to be fairly near, as strange as that may sound. This is the key to this stage.

Move a metal pillar close to Thunderblight Ganon by using magnesis on it. Lightning will strike it, knocking him off his game and returning him to the first phase’s pattern. Attack him again and again till he’s super dead.

REWARDS FOR THE THUNDERBLIGHT GANON

When you defeat Thunderblight Ganon, you’ll get Urbosa’s Fury, which summons a lightning strike all around you. Simply hold Y to activate it.
