The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Lurelin Pirates Walkthrough
Keep in mind while following this guide that I fought these enemies with the basic Hylian clothing set and 5 hearts. If this fight is too hard, it would be in your best interests to get more powerful gear before attacking.
The first thing you will want to do is get plenty of food. These monsters pack a punch and most can bring you down to a quarter of a heart with one swing. It will always be a good idea to avoid their attacks, but take the extra step to make defense food just in case. You also should not neglect additional ingredients that you don’t use. Things like fire fruit, muddle buds, and puff shrooms will be incredibly helpful. Basically, make sure you are well equipped with weapons, armor, food and items to help you take these guys down.
Now that you are all geared up and ready to go, let’s talk about the enemies. The monsters are separated into different groups, each in a different area with a different lookout. I recommend taking one group at a time unless you have some powerful AOE. Most of these enemies will be black tier, and any blue tier will likely be lookouts. Most of the enemies are bokoblins, with a few lizalfos in places. On the boat there is a black boss bokoblin with many black bokoblins around him, along with a lizalfos. Assuming you are looking at Lurelin from the shrine, I recommend starting with the right group and working your way left, and fighting the ship at the end.
For fighting each individual group, you will usually want to take out the lookout first, you might want to start with an arrow or muddle bud to get the fight started. It will be hard to get into a group quietly, but a puffshroom can help you get a sneakstrike in a pinch. If you’re not well-suited to melee combat, you could start a fire with a fire fruit or ruby, and then shoot arrows at the burning enemies. When possible, you want to take out a lizalfos first because they are much harder to deal with than bokoblins. If you don’t have much health you will want to always stay at full health, because most attacks can do over 5 full hearts of damage, not accounting for your armor. Do not forget to use your items to your advantage. It can be easy to forget and just go in using the weapon with the highest number, but using status effects like burning or frozen can add some extra power that you may need.
When you’re fighting the ship, it will be a hard battle. If you can’t find a good way onto the ship, try paragliding off the monster tower near where the right group of enemies was. Now, try to get the raised front section of the ship to yourself. This will help a lot. If you have a muddle bud, I recommend firing it at the boss bokoblin. This will damage both him, and his friends. If you are up on the front end of the ship, kill all of the regular bokoblins first. The boss bokoblin cannot climb the stairs, so you will be mostly safe from him, aside from his boulders.
If there is a sliver of the boss bar left after you finish the fight, it’s probably because there is a bokoblin in the well for some reason. Kill him and you’ve won. Good job. Be ready to help Bolson get all of his resources to rebuild the village.
