I got a blizzard rod that has extra durability i am excited about. Had a meteor rod, not sure if I still have it. No basic rods, weird. Well had one.
Kid in Hateno village wants me to show him a fire rod. Had been a while since got that quest, so I had thought he wanted to see an ice rod so found me a wizard shooting ice and killed him for it. Spent another 5 hours just exploring and getting annoyed with my ice rod sitting in my inventory, sicne it took up space and I had a better blizzard rod anyway, so whnever found new weapon I wanted I had to drop something decent while keeping ice rod. So finally headed back to talk to kid. He tells me he wants fire rod. I threw that damn ice rod right into his face.
Still have no fire rod.
There are some wizards with fire rods just north of the great plateau, south of the desert.
I wish you could store weapons. Eventually I throw the cool stuff away as it's only sitting in the way as I go through better weapons for normal fights. Freeze swords, lightning sword, fire, ice, meteor rods. Plus when you use them they only last 2 maybe 3 fights, sometimes not even one. Meteor rod is useful though, also works as a torch to melt iceblocks and keeps you warm if you don't have protective gear. I wonder if carrying a freeze rod keeps you cool in the desert? Need more inventory space!
They have yet broke on me. Maybe I am not using it enough.
The first one I got I started setting all the grass around me on fire, it broke in 60 seconds lol, 20-30 ish casts.
