Zelda: Breath of the Wild glitch lets you duplicate Spirit Orbs and more

Posted on January 20, 2021 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch, Wii U

Spirit Orbs are among the most valuable items in The legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You can use them to increase the amount of hearts you have or raise your total stamina. There are around 120 Spirit Orbs in Breath of the Wild, but that number can now be increased with a new glitch.

You may recall something we posted about for Breath of the Wild known as the Memory Storage glitch. That same method is used again here. You’ll need to watch a memory right after loading the game, kill Link to set up a ‘no death’ run on a new file with glitchy effects, put the Travel Medallion near Eventide Island, enter any shrine you haven’t beaten, claim the Spirit Orb and then quit the game, reload your save file, start the Eventide Island quest, and immediately give up.

Here’s a look at all of the steps in video form:

It turns out that the glitch is handy for more than just Spirit Orbs. Since you can duplicate any item given to you in a cutscene, things like Korok Seeds are on the table as well.

There’s a more in-depth guide on executing the glitch here.
