Item List

Oshus's Sword Mercay Island - Oshus's House
How To Get It:
 - Toss the barrels east of Oshus's House to reveal a hidden entrance to Oshus's Storehouse. A door blocks Link's way, but Ciela gives him a hint that writing a number on the door will open it. She doesn't remember the number, but it is the same as the number of palm trees on the beach, which is 7.

 - Tap the sign by the door and scribble 7. After the door is open, head on over to the chest and open it to find Oshus's Sword. Talk to Oshus after you get the sword and he will teach you some instructional attacks (listed above).  
Description & Uses:
 - This blade was Oshus's weapon of choice as a young lad, but he no longer needs it. Link can use the sword to slash objects, cut down grass, small trees and defeat most enemies.

Targeted Attack
 - Link can use the sword in various ways. Simply tapping on an enemy will make Link swipe at them. If the enemy is far away, Link will use a Jump Attack on them.

Side Slash
 - Drawing a line between you and the enemy (from Link's left to right or vice versa) will cause Link to swing his blade. Drawing lines quickly is a great attack as well as a form of defense.

Thrust
 - Draw a line straight from you to the enemy to perform a long thrust attack.

Spin Attack
 - Draw a circle around Link to perform a powerful Spin Attack that deals twice as much damage as regular sword strikes. This is a great technique when attacking multiple enemies or slashing grass. Be careful though! If you use four in a row, Link will be dizzy for several seconds.
