Zelda Sword Skills Mod 1.8/1.7.10/1.7.2/1.6.4

Zelda Sword Skills Mod

If you love Zelda and you love Minecraft, then you’ll for sure love this mod. Zelda Sword Skills+ provides a full-fledged Zelda-like experience in Minecraft, adding a plethora of exciting new sword skills that improve as you adventure, as well as a variety of the old favorites such as bombs and hookshots.

NOTE: For the latest updates, full mod description and changelog, visit my main mod page.




This mod started off as simply a promotional demo for the Quest mod by Nighttime Studios, headed by UltimateSpartan, meant to provide a sneak-peek at just one of the many features being added by that mod. It has since developed into a full-fledged Zelda mod, with many features that are unique and will not be included in Quest. Some features included in both may be different from their final implementation in Quest. Be sure to check outAntiqueAtlas by Hunternif for more Quest-related sneak-peeks!

Press x while looking at a target to lock on; once locked on, you will be able to use a variety of skills as you learn them using the arrow keys. RCtrl blocks, tab switches targets. Some skills only require the key to be tapped; other skills require the key to be held down for some time to charge up, and still other skills have even more unique activationmethods. You may also continue to use WASD + mouse controls to activate any of the skills, if you find that more comfortable.

Skills are learned from orbs that drop rarely from mobs – some mobs have a higher rate of dropping a certain type of skill orb, so be on the lookout for them! Each skill can gain multiple levels, each level increasing your damage, range, or some other factor. Some mobs drop heart orbs as well. Looting enchantments will greatly increase your chances of finding orbs and hearts.

After you have learned the first level of the skill from an orb, if you get a second orb you will be able to see information about the skill in the tooltip that will give you hints on how to activate it, if you had not figured it out already or cheated by looking at the content spoilers.

Be warned that each skill takes a lot of energy to use, and if you use your skills frequently you will quickly find yourself very very hungry. Be sure to have lots of food handy!
