Ancient Shafts are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Location and Uses

Breath of the Wild

Ancient Shafts can be found by defeating Guardians or within chests in Ancient Shrines. They're also sold by the travelling merchant Teli, who can be found on the path northwest of Hateno Village. They're made of a sturdy, yet unknown material.[1]

During or after the Side Quest "Slated for Upgrades", Link can give Purah three Ancient Shafts to upgrade the Remote Bomb Rune. The Ancient Oven in the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab also requires Ancient Shafts to make certain pieces of ancient equipment. They can be used to make Gray Dye at the Kochi Dye Shop or exchanged for Mon at the Fang and Bone.

Ancients Shafts are necessary to upgrade several pieces of Armor at Great Fairy Fountains. The Ancient Set, Vah Medoh Divine Helm, Vah Naboris Divine Helm, Vah Rudania Divine Helm, and Vah Ruta Divine Helm all need fifteen Ancient Shafts in order to reach their third tiers.

  • Total for Ancient Set: 45 (0, 0, 15, 0) x3
  • Total for Vah Medoh Divine Helm: 15 (0, 0, 15, 0)
  • Total for Vah Naboris Divine Helm: 15 (0, 0, 15, 0)
