Version 1.2: Altair's Embrace 1mo
  • Addition Added a new Shield to pair with the sword - the Altair's Embrace. Video can be found below.

A new original weapon custom made for Zelda

UPDATE 19/12/19: For Christmas I give to you all the highly requested SHIELD that will pair with this sword - Altair's Embrace. A new video showcasing this can be found below.


Linkles and Gentlelinks, I present to you my loving ode to the Zelda Universe: a completely original, brand new set of weapons added to Breath of the Wild as fully realised, unique actors that you can collect and french kiss your gameplay experience with. The Moon Slayer and Altair's Embrace.



The Moon Slayer is very special, as it is a one-of-a-kind, groundbreaking sword that houses special properties of the Master Sword previously thought to have been impossible. A long lost sister to the Sword that seals the darkness, this weapon once belonged to an ancient hero (Link) who was outcast to the desert by the Royal Family for seeking wisdom instead of courage. As a travelling monk, he was ostracised from the Master Sword, his birthright, and thus a celestial spirit wept for him and from there, forged the Moon Slayer out of her own tears and sorrow. An eagle adorns the hilt, symbolising the protection granted upon him by his flying companion.



The enemies of this blade were the corrupt royalty themselves, who sought to misuse the power of the Triforce, and just when they were about to attain their power to rule via lunar destruction, this sword pierced their hearts, and it now forever drips with the golden blood of the beings who thought they could stop the Eagle Bearer.

Here is a very cinematic video I worked quite hard on, please give it a watch!

Moon Slayer features:

- Unbreakable (necessary to work with Master Sword hardcode)
- Golden Light Beams
- 60 Damage (35 + guaranteed +25 Attack bonus), necessary to stay balanced with the Master Sword
- Undroppable
- Custom black and gold sword trail
- Special effects when hitting malice
- Can kill Beast Ganon

Altair's Embrace features:

- Unbreakable
- 100 Shield Guard
- Almost no Shield Surf friction (which means it's faster)
- Undroppable
- Freakin light hologram spirit magic

To obtain these weapons after installing, you must defeat the Gold Lynel atop Laparoh Mesa in the Gerudo Highlands. It's a one-time spawn, no resetting after Blood Moons.

I'm aware that to remove this sword from your inventory, you have to use a save editor or uninstall the mod. A side effect of making the Gold Beams is that the Master Sword shoots out gold beams now too (it's out of my control - hardcode, sorry). It looks pretty anyway!

This is also part of the Second Wind project, and in that you can definitely expect this sword to do more damage to account for the power creep. Let me know if you want a higher damage version anyway, 100 sounds like a nice, even, balanced number :p

IMPORTANT: If you already have an old version of the Moon Slayer, to update to the newest one and get that sweet shield, you must first take these steps in order:
1) UNINSTALL the old version
2) Load up your game, and SAVE
3) Exit your game
4) Install the new version
5) Reclaim your birthright from the Golden Lynel once more >:)

Enjoy your moon slaying!

    This mod looks like fun. Do you have any plans to add in an armor set and/or bow to match? I bet you could make them really great.

    Love this mod but I am curious. Where did you get the armor to match it?

    I installed this on top of Linkle and FOV mods and it causes my game to crash. I am using the bnp version with BCML and the up-to-date game, updates, and DLC files on CEMU 1.16.0. Cemu loads the pre-compiling screen, then crashes when it tries to boot the actual game. I disabled this mod and the game started working again. Any suggestions? I want to make sure this works in cemu before I try to merge and install it to my Wii U.

    Do you think you'll be adding a bow anytime soon? I'd really like to have something that can go with them to make it really feel like a complete set. One Idea I had is that the bow could have attack power close to the bow of light (maybe 50 with a guaranteed 45+ attack) and the arrows could be more straight and even have a 3-shot burst, but it still uses up arrows so it isn't too over-powered. another idea is that it could have its own arrows, which could be called Altairrows in reference to the Goddess who originally gifted the items to link. in this scenario, it wouldn't have a 3-shot burst, as I feel that in combination with infinite arrows would be too much. The Arrows could, however, have a unique quality where they act like normal arrows under most circumstances, but act like ancient arrows near malice. (sorry if this is asking too much, I just absolutely love this mod and I think these ideas would make it more unique, like the sword and shield). of course, it would also have the usual, unbreakable, undroppable, etc. as for appearance, I think it would be a crescent moon shape with the same theme and colour scheme, with a glowing bowstring. and if you decide to go with my Altairrows idea, I suggest making them essentially look like half of Altair's Embrace when not in use, with a golden arrowhead.

    I never thought about how much potential there was for simple "custom equipment" mods. Let me tell you: I'm sure it wasn't "simple" to make this, but I have had my fun enhanced so much by adding but 1 sword and 1 shield to my game thanks to you! I love it so much.

    I must say I really hope there can be a bow to go with the Moon Slayer and Altair's Embrace in the future.

    I can't get this to work. I'm using the graphics pack version but the lynel isn't spawning. I hadn't got the sword yet and didn't see the message about updating so I was playing with a save that was incorrectly updated. also, do you have to start a new game to get this?

    I actually found this mod a few hours after it came out thanks to youtube, and I have to say, this mod is amazing. I even challenged the lynel on a new account to make it that much harder. One thing i will say though is that when i uninstalled the old version of the moon slayer, it transferred the +25 attack bonus onto my master sword. after downloading the new one it still has the +25 attack bonus. It's not a big deal but i was just wondering if theres any fix.
