A proper war effort requires two major components: money and armaments. Considering the especially large scale of the war against the Calamity in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, we’re going to need a lot of money and really strong armaments. Strap on your straw hats, kids, it’s time to go farming. Here’s how to farm Weapons and Rupees in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
How to Farm Rupees in Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity
Let me preface this with a piece of advice that applies to farming both money and weapons: the difficulty level you’re playing on has no bearing on the stuff you get. If you’re playing missions with the express purpose of farming, save yourself some trouble and turn the game down to Easy.
Now there’s a couple of good ways to net yourself some extra cash, and one of them can even be done fairly early on. There’s a level 15 mission called “Hair Width Trial: Beginner” in which you need to dispatch a small group of enemies without taking a single hit. It’s actually far easier than it sounds, especially if you use someone fast like Revalli. Once you’ve got a rhythm going, you can clear the whole thing in about thirty seconds, which will net you a solid 700 rupees. By my math, if you spent an hour playing nothing but this mission, you’ll end up with about 84,000 rupees.
The second money-making method comes far later in the game with Blood Moon missions. These are much larger in scale and can take up to 20 minutes to finish. On their own, the missions won’t make you much cash, but you can get lots of rare monster materials, which can be sold to the Rito Guardian vendor for a double markup. You can get even more stuff if you’ve got seals and recipes that increase material drop rates.
How to farm Weapons in Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity
When it comes to farming weapons, the golden rule is “bigger is better.” You want large-scale conflicts with high recommended levels that allow you to bring as many characters as possible. You may have noticed already, but you always receive a larger surplus of weapons for the characters you actually play as when clearing a mission, and higher-level weapons are earned from higher-level missions.
What you really want are missions with lots of large foes. Hinoxes, Moblins, Guardians, Lynels, Taluses; anything with its own health bar is far more likely to drop weapons. There’s a particular late-game story mission, “The Siege of Fort Hateno,” that allows you to pack four characters at once and features a smorgasbord of large foes. Turn the difficulty down and go at it with your best dudes, and you’re guaranteed a haul of at least seven quality weapons per character. Hopefully, with all that money you got before, you’ll be able to smith all of those weapons into something truly formidable.
