How to get Scimitar of the Seven in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Such power comes with a cost, however, and there is a grind involved in getting this gear. First travel to Gerudo Town and find Cara in the Gerudo Shelter. Access this building for the first time via the town well. Swim upstream until you reach the area below the shrine where you’ll see bottles dropping down into the stream. Use Ascend to access the Shelter.
Once there, speak to Cara to progress the main story and initiate “The Missing Owner” quest. Also, note that you will need to complete the main story in Gerudo Desert to get the Scimitar of the Seven and the Daybreaker Shield. As for “The Missing Owner” quest, head to Toruma Dunes northwest of Gerudo Town to find Isha stranded and in need of rescue from a Molduga. The coordinates are -4786, -2810, 0027.
Where to get a Gerudo Scimitar and Shield
You may receive a Gerudo Scimitar or Shield after defeating the Molduga. Save these, because crafting the Scimitar of the Seven or Daybreaker Shield requires these template items. There are multiple other ways to find a Gerudo Scimitar though, such as in the Lightning Temple after the first collapsing floor. You’ll find a Gerudo Scimitar there by a grave after fighting an Electric Bat. You may also find a Gerudo Scimitar or Shield at a weapons cache hidden out in the desert. There’s also a method to grind random drops while doing the main steps for the Scimitar of the Seven and Daybreaker Shield.
Items needed to craft the Scimitar of the Seven and Daybreaker Shield
Head back to Gerudo Town and speak to Isha and Cara to receive a Diamond as a reward for her return. Isha will then tell you to collect four Diamonds, 10 pieces of Flint, and the Gerudo Scimitar and Shield. You can find Diamonds and Flint around the Hyrule, but the Gerudo gear only spawns in the local region. There are several ways to collect Diamonds and Flint, but one area makes the grind much easier. You can also search for the Gerudo Scimitar and Shield while doing so.
Head to the West Gerudo Underground Ruins at -0292, 0142, 0025. It’s far west of Gerudo Town and marked by large skeletal remains. You’ll need to blast your way into the underground area in the center of the ruins. You can use a manual save method here as well to repeat the following steps until you get the desired materials.
Begin clearing out the stone from the chamber below and you’ll cause plenty of Flint to drop for collection. Once everything is clear, save the game. Next, defeat the Shock Like and check for the remaining gear you need. You can repeat this process as necessary if you’d prefer to get the Gerudo Shield and Scimitar and don’t mind grinding.
You can then move on to checking the rare mineral deposits, which have a chance to spawn Diamonds. Use the same manual save method and repeat to earn up to two Diamonds here. You then only have one more Diamond to find. The easiest way to get one is by purchasing it from Gonguron in Goron City for 1,000 Rupees. He sells a maximum of three Diamonds per day if you’re loaded with cash and prefer this method. You can also beat Stone Talus bosses in the Depths for a chance to get a Diamond from dropped loot.
Once you have the necessary items, head back to Isha and she will craft the legendary items for you. Getting the Scimitar of the Seven and Daybreaker Shield is not an easy task, but you’ll see how these items are worth it after you test out the power of the Scimitar of the Seven.
