I just started playing adventure mode in Hyrule Warriors and I'm slightly confused on what each item does. For example I tried used a compass to find a hidden area and it was under a rock so I tired to use the bombs and nothing happened.

So what can each item card do and also do item cards respawn on the adventure map?


The following is a list of cards available in Adventure Mode, along with a description of each:

Compass Compass: Use this while searching to identify where an Item Card can be used

Candle Candle: Use this on trees to uncover hidden stairways

Bomb Bomb: Use this on walls to uncover hidden caves

Ladder Ladder: Use this to move across a single space of water

Bracelet Power Bracelet: Use this on heavy rocks and tombstones to uncover hidden stairways

Water Bomb Water Bomb: Use this on submerged rocks to destroy them

Digging Mitts Digging Mitts: Use this on soft earth to uncover hidden stairways

Bow Ice Arrow: Use this on circles of flame to uncover hidden stairways

Raft Raft: Use this on piers to cross to the opposite shore

Hookshot Hookshot: Use this on distant targets to pull yourself to them

Recorder Recorder: Use this on a small body of water to reveal secrets and enemies

Harp Goddess Harp: Use it on Goddess Butterflies to make Gossip Stones appear

Note: Couldn't find exact images for all of them, but hopefully it helps show which item is which.

Edit: Click item names to see the loading screen description for that card along with in-game image.

  • Does the in-game icon for the Ice Arrow include the Arrow itself as well (so it looks like a bow and arrow)?

  • @Reafexus Yes. The arrow is pointing up and it to the left of the bow.
