There are two ways to get this.

  • First, by a random drop using the ‘Princess Zelda’ Breath Of The Wild amiibo
  • Second is get into the Castle Hyrule and explore it.

The shield is inside a chest in a lockup, an area of dungeons underneath the castle. Now you are outside the castle and you have to begin from here in the grounds. Then by the moat, get to the south-west corner. There are guardians around here so you may need to defeat them or sprint past them and their targeting lasers. Look north and you will see a minecart track in the rocks, above the water.

Now you have to glide over. Then gradually swim up to the cavern. From there just follow the track till the end. Take out the Keeses. Jump in the minecraft and detonate bombs into the end compartment to propel you forward. You will reach another nearby cavern. Go through the doorway to see a path going up along the left wall lined with torches. Proceed on this path and then take the linear corridor down to a cracked wall. Use a bomb and blow up the wall.

You need to go the large cylindrical room (Look in the map). Go left and take a left again to reach a corridor with a jail cell to your right. It is the Lockup. There is a cracked door on the left in the end. Now use a bomb and blow up the door. Then get inside the jail cell. Once there, on the left you will see warped bars. You need to shoot through them. Then take out the Calamity Eye. Then quickly turn to the left in the cell and get to the far end area. This is where the shield is located. Go inside.

There is a huge beast here named Staliox and you need to beat it. Once it’s down, you will finally get to the Hylian Shield location. There you will see a chest. This chest will contain the Hylian shield. Get it.
