How To Get Earthquake Ability Tears Of The Kingdom
As promised, here’s a comprehensive step-by-step guide on how to get the Earthquake ability:
The first step to unlocking the Earthquake ability involves obtaining the Yiga Clan Armor Set. This disguise is essential to infiltrate the Yiga Clan’s hideout undetected. We have a guide on this already so check that out to begin.
With the Yiga Clan Armor Set equipped, you can infiltrate the Yiga Clan Hideout. This is situated within the Gerudo Highlands, east of the Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower, inside a little nook.
Once inside the hideout, take the right path and climb to the top of the area. Here, you’ll find the Blademaster, a key character in the process of unlocking the Earthquake ability.
The Blademaster will present you with a challenge: defeat three Yiga Clan members within 60 seconds. Completing this task rewards you with Yiga Fabric, a material used for upgrading your paraglider.
After successfully defeating three Yiga Clan members, the Blademaster presents a more significant challenge: defeat six clan members within the same time frame.
Accomplishing this feat rewards you with the Earthquake Manual, the key to unlocking the Earthquake ability.
With the Earthquake Manual in your possession, you can finally unlock the Earthquake ability. To use it, unequip any weapons, hold, and release the attack button. This will unleash a devastating shockwave, momentarily stunning nearby enemies.
The Earthquake ability adds an extra dimension to combat encounters, offering a unique way to gain the upper hand in tough battles.
It’s a testament to the depth of Tears of the Kingdom gameplay, and a perfect example of the innovative features that set this game apart. So prepare yourself, rise to the challenge, and shake the very earth beneath your enemies’ feet.
