Hyrule Warriors: Double Helix Sword Tiers

In addition to the mask costumes, crediar also revealed the tiers of Young Link's and Tingle's weapons.

The big surprise is that Young Link actually doesn't have the three different tiers for the Kokiri Sword, but the Fierce Deity gets three different swords:


Makes me wonder, why they are using Young Link in the first place. On the one hand I'm glad that the Fierce Deity seems to be more important than expected, on the other hand having the Razor Sword and the Gilded Sword would have made a lot of sense, unless you compare the Fierce Deity to Epona or the Great Fairy and the Kokiri Sword would be its own weapon in the sequel. But still... the Great Fairy's Sword would have been a much better fit, since it's actually a two-handed sword and it doesn't miss any sword upgrades.

And Young Link feels kind of pointless... but let's see, how this combination plays out in two days to reserve judgement.


About Tingle... he gets three Balloons based on his spin-off games:


Those would be Tingle's Balloon Fight, Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love and Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland respectively. That's certainly a nice idea.

Those kinda look like Soul Calibur and Soul Edge.

I don't know if you know this yet or not but the Kokiri Sword has been confirmed as Dark element and the Balloon has been confirmed as Water element. Now the element standings are:
Fire- 5
Water- 5
Lightning- 5
Light- 5 (6 including Master Sword)
Dark- 9
... great balancing, amiright?

Actually Tingle uses the Fire Element.

it's water. You know when you hit an enemy and little beam effects flash out? The color of them reflect the weapon's element and tingle's particles are blue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtuEuyGSz14

If you watch the video carefully, you'll see that when Tingle hits an enemy, blue shafts of light come from the enemies like so:

Compare that to this picture of Zelda hitting an enemy with the dominion rod (darkness):

And Ruto, who has the same effects as Tingle

Watch the trailer, you can see his Focus Spirit.

oh shit, my bad man. Eveywhere i looked it said he was water. My apologies

TourianTourist said...

No problem. I also thought, he would be water.

However, this might be good news. Since there hasn't been a water weapon in the DLC yet, I still have hopes that they might give Link the Fishing Rod as a free extra in the last update. Would be cool.

a Fishing Rod weapon would be hilarious. I'm gonna be kinda disappointed if there isn't another water weapon
