I was watching a video on the champion weapons, and the person mentioned that if you get the champion weapons reforged, the description changes to mention it being a replica. I was wondering if this is actually the case. I'm tossing up using them or storing them in my house.

Stop perpetuating incorrect information.

This is one of the biggest FALSE rumors of the game. I don't know where it originated nor why it took off but it is simply not true.

The description of the Ceremonial Trident (original or reformed) mentions that it is a replica of the Lightscale Trident. That's it.

The description doesn't change,but at least one of then NPCs uses the phrasing of "make you a new one", implying that when you "reforge" you're not fixing the one you had, but getting an entirely different weapon of the same design characteristics.

Ceremonial Trident is specifically a copy of the Lightscale Trident, though, that's its entire thing.

I hung the Champion weapons on the wall, but I just broke the Ceremonial Trident and never repaired it because why bother?

Personally, I would've preferred if you got a broken version when you break them that can't be used (like the Master Sword when it "breaks"), and you bring the same materials minus the weapon they ask you to get (so no Zora Spear needed for Lightscale for example) to run with the idea that you get and keep the originals.

Plus I just don't consider them repairable since you do have to hunt down a completely different weapon to get them back. Replaceable, yes, but not repairable.

LOL ... I too love the semantics/technicality of "repair" vs. "reforge" vs. "make a new one". Technically, they are all different things, but with the same effective end result. You break a champion weapon, you go to the appropriate "smith" and get a new one provided you have the required materials/money to do it.

That said, I never paid attention to the Lightscale Trident, in its original form or "reforged" form ... so seeing they look different is news to me. But, if the stats are the same (damage and durability) then aesthetics are the only thing that matter, if you care about such things.

They don't look different. In the pics above, Link is holding the Zora spear in the first pic. If you notice the inventory, the Lightscale Trident is selected (but not equipped), thus the description.
