Breath of the Wild Armor Sets


I, like many other people, still find myself sinking massive amounts of time into Breath of the Wild. Even though the game has been out for over a month, it seems as if I'm not even close to running out of things to do. With 55+ hours of game-play committed, I'm now on a mission to collect as many different sets of armor as possible. I'm not near finished when it comes to collecting, however these are the sets I've discovered so far!

Hylian

While this armor doesn't have any special set bonuses, it was the first standard set I purchased after starting the game. It comes with 3 defense, and looks pretty cool as well.






Champions Tunic

From the time Breath of the Wild was released, this standard blue outfit is the one we all came to recognize. I was actually quite surprised that the game didn't start with Link wearing this armor, and I even managed to miss it completely before I went to defeat Ganon. Let's just say that it is worthwhile to find and restore Zelda's memories before end game (for more reason than one).




Zora

I find myself using this armor set quite often. The Zora armor will increase your swimming speed, and will cause you to use less stamina while dashing in water. The helm alone grants you the ability to swim up waterfalls.






Barbarian

This set looks a bit ridiculous, but it sure does have a good perk. The Barbarian set can be collected by completing three different "maze shrines" located throughout Hyrule. When worn together you receive an attack up bonus which can be helpful for battling more powerful enemies. This is the armor set I worn into my first fight with Ganon!





Stealth

I actually haven't bought this armor yet, but I know it's there for whenever I feel like spending a chunk of my rupees. The Stealth set is located in Karkariko village and is the second armor set available to you at the start along with the Hylian armor. The Stealth armor set grants the wearer more stealth, and at night you will have increased movement speed.




Snowquill

This armor set isn't very flashy, but it will keep you warm. Wearing all three pieces of the Snowquill armor will earn the player full freeze resistance, which is handy for when you're trekking through the tall snowy mountains of Hyrule.






Gerudo

Before Breath of the Wild, I didn't know that cross-dressing Link was a thing I would ever need or want, but this outfit does just that. The Gerudo outfit is used to enter Gerduo town along with granting heat resistance in the Gerudo desert.






Flamebreaker

Don't confuse heat resistance in the Goron area with heat resistance in the Gerudo area. They are somehow not the same. In order to make your way up to the Goron village you could use a lot of heat elixirs, but your money is better spent buying this armor set once you make the initial trek. The Flamebreaker armor features complete heat resistance, which is a necessity when you are running around volcanoes with your Goron buddies.




Dark Link

This is my absolute favorite armor set that I've found so far. This armor set can be purchased from Kilton's Monster Shop after completing a side-quest and unlocking all four divine beasts. When worn in full the Dark Link armor increases your movement speed at night. The Stealth armor does in fact grant the exact same perk, and the Dark Link armor can't be upgraded at the fairy fountains, but that doesn't stop it from looking amazing.




This is far from a complete list of all the armor sets in Breath of the Wild, but these are the ones I've managed to find so far. I'll try my best to come back and update this list as I find more! If you've found any cool sets that aren't on this list, send a message or leave a comment so I can go hunt it down in my own game!

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap: Old Gem to You, New Gem to Me

I found myself recently craving a new game to play on my Nintendo Switch. I had just finished Super Mario Odyssey (yes I took a long time to finish it, I'm a busy person- don't judge) and I had absolutely nothing new to reach for next! After a brief glance at the eShop sale section I saw Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap on sale for a mere $9.99. I'd heard great things about it from the various video game podcasts that I listen to, but like many reviews that are done with free review copies- I took their opinions with a grain of salt. After a bit of an eternal debate, I took the plunge and never looked back. And wow am I glad that I did! Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap  may be new to me, but it definitely isn't a new game. It originally made it's debut on the Sega Master System in 1989 as Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap . As someone who wasn't even alive at that time, I'd never even heard of the Sega Master System let alone Wonder Boy III . Wond

Monster Hunter World: An Honest Review

Let me start out by saying that until a few years ago Monster Hunter was one of those games that I could watch for hours on streaming sites but it just seemed too complicated to learn myself. I can't count the number of times I download demos on the Nintendo 3DS and gave up because I couldn't kill the easiest monster in the game. Many YouTube videos and hours of reading later I finally felt knowledgeable enough to purchase the full version and dive in. Does this sound like you? If so let me put it simply- this game will welcome you with open arms. Monster Hunter: World is easily the most newbie friendly entry in the series. Are there still a lot of mechanics to learn? Yes. But the system as a whole has been redone in a way that just works. Even my husband, whom I've tried to get playing for years, has sunk his teeth into this title and is playing through the story. If you're on the fence- don't be. Plain and simple. Now that we have that out the way let&

Monster Hunter World: 10 Tips for Beginners

Unless you've been under a rock you've probably noticed that Monster Hunter World is a huge hit right now. The game has shipped 5 million copies worldwide and has already sold 1.3 million copies in the United States. While this installment is much friendlier to newcomers than past titles there is still a large chunk of the game that you are left to figure out on your own. Even as someone who has put ~400 hours into the monster hunter series over the last few years I found it took even me a few hours to get comfortable with all the new features. If you find yourself a bit overwhelmed, hopefully this list can help you out a bit! 1.) Don't Let the Timer Scare You All quests in Monster Hunter are timed, however I RARELY ever have problems completing the quest in time. There is plenty of time to complete quests in the 50 allotted minutes so don't panic watching the clock tick down. 2.) Upgrade Often at the Forge It is very easy to get caught up in the momen
