Yunobo can help you clear blocked entrances. In combat, you can use a charge attack with fire damage. Sidon has a powerful ability that will protect you from strong bosses. It will form a temporary water barrier that will guard you from on-hit attacks. Moreover, you can aim at the enemy and swing your weapon to send a wave toward the enemy.

With Tulin, you can use its Gust ability to move farther while paragliding. Moreover, you can use it in combat to blow away small enemies. Finally, you can use Riju’s sage ability to conjure a lightning field. If you hit an enemy with an arrow within this field, powerful lightning will strike them, causing massive damage.

In the case of Sage Wills, the best way to obtain them is through the treasure chests spread across the Hyrule Kingdom.
