From the rumors I've heard, it sounds like rock octoroks can:
a) repair weapons
b) add modifiers to weapons

If this is true, how does this work? What determines what kind of modifier you get?

  • Do you mean "Rock Octoroks"? I haven't seen anything about "Fire Octoroks" on the web...

    Huh. I tried dropping my flashing red weapon near a rock octorok, and sure enough, it sucked it up, some sparkly effects played and when it spat it out it wasn't flashing red anymore, and had a +4 attack modifier.

  • @Showsni I assume that by "flashing red weapon" you mean a badly damaged weapon?

  • @User23415 Yes, the kind that flash red on the inventory screen and give the warning message when you pull them out.

Once per blood moon, each rock octorok can repair a single item. This happens when the octorok inhales a weapon, bow, or shield. The octorok will chew on the item for a little bit, and then will spit it out with full durability and a potentially better modifier. Specifically:

  • If the weapon has no modifier, it will get a random white modifier.
  • If the weapon has a white modifier, it will be replaced by a random gold modifier.
  • If the weapon has a gold modifier, it will be rerolled.

Note that it is possible to reload your save until you get your desired modifier, which is helpful if you are grinding for a pristine +10 Royal Guard's Claymore.
