The Fortified Shield is the final upgrade of the Iron Shield. It has double the durability of the Iron Shield. Keep in mind it’s still weak to electricity.

Although it’s a good upgrade, unless you’re struggling with the parry timing (or a completionist), the extra durability is kind of overkill.

Where to Find

You must upgrade the Reinforced Shield via the Scrap Shop.

Required items:

  • Blue Bird Feather (x1)
  • Eldin Ore (x3)
  • Monster Claw (x3)
  • Tumbleweed (x3)
  • 100 Rupees
