Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity 6 Advanced Combat Tips And Tricks

Hyrule Warriors is finally out and we're here to break down some extremely useful tips for those who are having a tough time in the fight!

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but it's a much different sort of game. Like the first Hyrule Warriors, it's a Musuo-style game in the vein of Dynasty Warriors, which means you'll be beating down countless swaths of enemies. But that doesn't mean the action is mindless by any means, and there are some key strategies if you want to really up your combat game.

In the video above, GameSpot's Max Blumenthal runs through some advanced combat tips that will help you make the most of your time with Age of Calamity. The Stasis power from Breath of the Wild returns here, for example, but you don't want to simply spam it whenever possible--there are strategic ways to make use of Stasis to extend the time you have to attack weak points and to stun enemies for longer.

Max also covers the game's wildly powerful Impa, techniques to help if you're having difficulty nailing the timing on parrying or dodging, and why the Magnesis ability is much more powerful than you might think.

For much more, check out our Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity review. The game is available now on Nintendo Switch.
