- One player has shared a clever trick using a Zonai Hover Stone and spear to easily solve all President Hudson sign puzzles in Tears of the Kingdom.
- The trick involves fusing a Hover Stone onto a spear, then throwing the resulting weapon at any given sign.
- The method also allows players to reuse both components to efficiently solve multiple President Hudson sign puzzles.
One The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player has shared a clever trick for easily solving all of the President Hudson sign puzzles in the game by combining Zonai Hover Stones with spears. Their newly demonstrated method adds to the list of helpful Tears of the Kingdom tricks that the fandom has come across since the game’s mid-2023 release.
The Breath of the Wild sequel is filled to the brim with all kinds of content, and the President Hudson signs are no exception; since these puzzles involving Link helping Addison balance wooden signs are meant to serve as a showcase of the game’s building mechanics, Nintendo went out of its way to include quite a lot of them. As a result, there are 81 President Hudson signs to be found in Tears of the Kingdom.
And while some of these Tears of the Kingdom puzzles can prove to be a bit convoluted to solve, it turns out that all of them share at least one universal solution that allows them to be overcome almost instantaneously. The trick, recently demonstrated by Reddit user castorshell13, comes down to fusing a Zonai Hover Stone onto a spear, then throwing the resulting weapon straight at the signpost, immediately below the signage. Doing so will cause the stone to break off from the spear, while also activating it and leaving it suspended in the air, which will allow the shaky post to stay in place long enough for Addison to secure it.
TOTK Players Can Solve Multiple President Hudson Sign Puzzles By Reusing the Same Hover Stone and Spear
Some of the players offering their two cents on this trick opined that they aren’t thrilled with the idea of wasting Zonai devices on President Hudson signs, especially since many of them aren’t that difficult to solve in the first place. However, the method actually isn’t as wasteful as it seems, with castorshell13 confirming that the Hover Stone can simply be fused back to the thrown spear and reused.
In other words, the only expendable resource involved in this trick is one’s spear of choice, as throwing weapons depletes their durability points even if they don’t connect with an enemy. This trick hence compares favorably to pretty much all the other known ways to keep the President Hudson signs standing in Tears of the Kingdom, at least in terms of time efficiency.
On the other hand, Addison’s puzzles tend to offer a nice change of pace from combat and adventuring, so using this method to solve every single one of them might actually end up being detrimental to one’s overall experience. Nevertheless, the recent case of a Tears of the Kingdom player sabotaging Addison after proclaiming they were fed up with his puzzles suggests that some fans will still welcome an opportunity to skip this sort of content with a simple, universal trick.
