Zelda: TotK Armor Sets & Set Bonuses

Armor pieces in Tears of the Kingdom can be grouped into one of three categories based on where they are equipped - Head, Chest, and Legs. Some armor pieces may form a set when worn together, granting Link additional properties not present on it's individual pieces such as Attack Up or Fireproof. Pieces of the same Armor Set can be easily identified by their names (i.e. Ancient Helm, Ancient Cuirass and Ancient Greaves) and generally share the same aesthetic styling, Defense Rating, and Special Effects.


Tears of the Kingdom Armor Dyeing

A mechanic that will likely make it's return is Armor Dyeing. In Breath of the Wild, it was possible to alter the color of most pieces of Armor by visiting the Dye Shop in Hateno Village. Link would have to bring 20 Rupees and five Materials that corresponded with a certain color, and the Merchant at the shop would dye all equipped Armor the desired color.

Upgrading Armor in Tears of the Kingdom

In Breath of the Wild, Armor could be upgraded by taking them to a Great Fairy Fountain. Each Great Fairy had to be paid a set amount of Rupees before providing their upgrading services, after which players could have their Armor upgraded in exchange for specific materials. Armor pieces could be upgraded up to a maximum of 4 times, with each upgrade increasing it's Defense Rating.

Expect Tears of the Kingdom to feature a similar upgrading mechanic. This section will be updated once more is known about upgrading Armor in Tears of the Kingdom.
