Zelda: Breath of the Wild version 1.3.1 removes Trial of the Sword glitch
After Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s first DLC pack arrived, players eventually discovered an interesting glitch. It involved entering the the Trial of the Sword and warping to a Divine Beast that you haven’t finished in order to duplicate items.

We wouldn’t be surprised though if players manage to find another way of duplicating items with a different glitch in the future.
Thanks to Jake for the tip.
