Nevermind the dubious shopkeeper, this is a very robust shield. (left), With it, you don’t have to worry about your shield burning. (right)

The Iron Shield is a shield made from tough metal, which can resist flames, but is susceptible to electricity. It has 50% more durability than the Wooden Shield.

When venturing to fiery landscapes, such as Eldin Volcano, you should carry the Iron Shield (or better) with you, unless you want your shield to burn away in your hands.

Where to Find

After completing Skyview Temple, you can buy the Iron Shield from the Skyloft Bazaar for 100 Rupees.


The Iron Shield can be upgraded to the Reinforced Shield.

Alternatively, you can wait until the Sacred Shield is stocked at the Bazaar, after learning the Ballad of the Goddess.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft–a floating village in the vast sky. For ages, you’ve been training at the Knight Academy and, today, the day of your graduation has arrived. While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…

Our strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (HD) contains all the necessary knowledge to search for and rescue Zelda, such as a full walkthrough with detailed maps. Plus every hero needs a rest; if you want to grab all the collectables and fix other people’s problems (sidequests), we can help you with that too!

Newly added:

  • Revised and re-structured the walkthrough to make it more accessible.
  • Added dozens of useful maps.
