What is the Mirror Shield in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom?
The mirror shield is a Fuse item in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom with a base defence of 50. It’s a unique shield that gives Link the ability to deflect and redirect light beams and magical attacks. Deflecting these attacks is its speciality and naturally, with a well-timed parry, you can deflect attacks right back at your enemies.
This unique ability to manipulate and redirect light and magic sets the Mirror Shield apart as an invaluable tool in Link's arsenal, allowing you to tackle some enemies in brand-new ways. It’s a weapon every Zelda player should try out at least once in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.

Once you have your new shield, you can use it to reflect magic attacks during combat. More important, however, is the ability to reflect beams of light. This ability is essential in solving many of the game’s puzzles and shrines.
