The Sacred Shield is the third type of shield you buy. It has less durability than even a Wooden Shield, but it can resist fire, electricity and curses, and gradually restores durability by itself.

More specifically, the Sacred Shield has 75% of the Wooden Shield’s durability. It will automatically restore 1 durability every 3 seconds. At most, it will take 33 seconds to reach maximum durability.

Also, if you raise the Sacred Shield at a Cursed Bokoblin, you can scare it away.

Where to Find

You may purchase the Sacred Shield from the Bazaar, after fighting the Imprisoned the first time.


You can upgrade the Sacred Shield into a Divine Shield via the Scrap Shop.

Or if you wait until near the end of the game, you can earn the Hylian Shield from Lanayru Gorge.

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.
