Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Rush into the Watetrblight Ganon and start attacking him with your melee weapon.
  • Be careful while close to the Waterblight. It can raise its spear and than stab it into the water, creating a blast to knock Link back.
  • Keep in close and attack. Be sure to shield when you see the Spear being raised.
  • This will continue until Link gets the Waterblight below 50% health.
  • This will bring the Waterblight into the second phase. The water level rises and 4 platforms rise up from the ground.
  • The Waterblight will summon up Ice Blocks to throw at Link.
  • Link can either use the Cryonis rune to destroy the incoming blocks or fire an arrow at it to break it.
  • It can summon up to 5 ice blocks to hurl at Link.
  • Link can also dive into the water behind the raised stones to avoid the incoming ice blocks.
  • It can also raise its spear and strike across most of the area.
  • It can also raise the spear and throw the spear at Link.
  • This spear attack attack is best dodged.
  • Try to hit the Waterblight in the head to stun it.
  • Once stunned, rush the Waterblight and attack it.
  • When reduced to 25% or less, the Waterblight will start to use the Guardian Laser attack.
