I'm not a fan of removing the durability from all items in the game indiscriminately, however the Hylian Shield is known to have always been an unbreakable shield in all revisions of the Zelda Series. In addition to it breaking in Breath of the Wild, you also cannot repurchase it unless you finish the Tarrey Town sidequest. Most users break this shield expecting it to never break. Its base durability is 800 making it 20x stronger than all shields in the game by far, but I digress.
This mod covers the following:
- Infinite durability, this includes immunity to surfing damage. - Reduced surfing friction, lower than any other shield. - Extra Option: The Mirror Effect from the Ancient Shield, allowing you to automatically reflect beams.
Reduced friction makes this shield the best surfer in the game, and no durability allows you to always surf without worry. This also makes it the best shield to use on CEMU when playing the game at 60FPSsince the game's physics are amplified by x2; causing the default surfing ability of all shields to be cut in half. This is the primary reason I created this mod.
The two versions are below:
- Standard: No automatic reflection. - Mirror: Autoreflects beams when guarding.
I love this! The only way it could get better is 1) if there was a way to increase the max speed of shield surfing and 2) if you included a mod to change link + hylian shield into Tony Halk + Skateboard.
