How to get Monk Maz Koshia in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Every step you need to complete to unlock Monk Maz Koshia in Age of Calamity

Monk Maz Koshia in Age of Calamity. They're a floating monk with a veiled face, wide-brimmed hat, and hands with magic spewing from them.

Some characters in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity are extremely well hidden, requiring the completion of certain quests. One of them is Monk Maz Koshia, and you’re going to have to jump through a lot of hurdles to make the monk part of your roster.

The big challenge comes in farming the required resources to complete each one of the challenges. For some of these challenges, you just to defeat regular enemies, but for the rest, you’ll need to fight the significantly tougher foes that appear in much smaller numbers. After all that fighting, you’ll then need to save up all your jewels and gemstones you’ve collected throughout your adventure, all just to unlock a very tough boss fight with a fairly tight time limit.

To give you a bit of a heads up, we figured we’d list every single Age of Calamity quest you need to complete to unlock Monk Maz Koshia as one of the playable Age of Calamity characters, as well as tips for farming the required items. There will also be details on what level your characters should be in order to take on the final challenge.

HOW DO I UNLOCK Monk Maz Koshia?

To unlock Monk Maz Koshia in Age of Calamity, you will need to:

  • Complete the second mission of Chapter 4
  • Complete The Trial of Monsters, The Trial of the Mighty Foe, and The Trial of Stones quests to unlock the final challenge
  • Complete The Trial of the Ancients challenge to unlock Monk Maz Koshia

The trickiest part will be to gather the Age of Calamity items required to complete the three Trial quests. In order to complete them fully, you’ll need to gather the following items for each quest:

Trial Item requirements
The Trial of Monsters
  • Ethereal Stone x5
  • Bokoblin Trophy x350
  • Lizalfos Trophy x100
  • Wizzrobe Trophy x3
  • Moblin Trophy x20
The Trial of the Mighty Foe
  • Ethereal Stone x10
  • Stone Talus Trophy x1
  • Hinox Trophy x3
  • Lynel Trophy x3
The Trial of the Stones
  • Ethereal Stone x7
  • Amber x10
  • Topaz x5
  • Ruby x5
  • Diamond x2

As for some tips on where best to find these items, the jewels can be found by completing quests, but are also found for sale in one of Age of Calamity merchants. Ethereal Stones are found by completing quests and challenges.

As for the larger monster trophies, we recommend ‘Cross the Hebra Mountains’ for farming Lynel, ‘Cross the Volcano’ for the Stone Talus, and ‘Echoing Footsteps’ for Hinox. These take a lot less time than playing story missions.

The final step is to defeat Monk Maz Koshia in battle in the Trial of the Ancients challenge. It’s a level 38 boss fight with a tough three minute time limit, but once you beat the Sheika monk, you’ll unlock them to use in battle.

That’s pretty much it for this guide, but if you’re finding this battle a bit tough, our Age of Calamity recipes guide can help with some last-minute buffs that may turn the tide of the fight.
