The Botw Traveler’s Sword in Zelda
The botw traveler’s sword is one of the first weapons Link acquires in Zelda Breath of the Wild. Unfortunately, it’s an extremely low level weapon with limited damage and durability, making it hard to justify its purchase at the beginning of the game.
Nebb requires this weapon for his side quest “The Weapon Connoisseur”. To complete it, Link must collect a Traveler’s Sword from various locations and show it to Nebb in exchange for a Red Rupee. Doing so allows Link to keep the sword after completing the quest, enabling him to continue using it throughout his adventure.
