How to Defeat Stone Talus in Zelda TOTK

Aim at the Heart

As mentioned earlier, the Blue ore on the Stone Talus’ back is its heart and the only way to knock it down. In order to break it, players can always use some Range weapons. That can be the Bow and arrow in the early stages of the game. To maximize its effect we recommend you use your Fuse ability and combine Bomb Flowers or Fire Fruit with your arrows.

Stun and Attack

If you’re running low on arrows or Bomb Flowers, simply stun the enemy and then climb it to inflict melee attacks. To stun Stone Talus take a higher ground, and hit an arrow at the Blue ore. Doing so will make the monster fall for a few seconds that you can use to climb your way up or Ascend through the enemy. And after you’re on top of it, keep causing melee damage to the Blue ore until this stone monster bucks you off. And when it does ensure you have a smooth landing, by using Paraglider or any other means.

Keep Distance

While you are fighting and trying to beat Stone Talus in Tears of the Kingdom, don’t forget to keep your distance. That’s because, no matter how slow this monster is, if you don’t Parry at the right time, the damage can be deadly. So it’s best to only use ranged weapons until you stun the enemy and then use all the combo melee attacks you have.

Once you destroy the Blue ore on the enemy’s back, it’ll burst and drop various materials. Which makes it one of the farming methods to obtain resources in the game. So explore locations like Eldin Mountains, Deep Akkala, Gerudo Highlands, and more to find Stone Talus in TotK.
