Ancient Armor Set

    The Ancient Armor set is one of the better armor sets for combat. Most armor sets are geared to some form of elemental region and will provide an enchantment that will reflect this. The ancient armor will provide bonuses that purely benefit combat, which makes this a valuable armor set for boss fights and other difficult areas of the game where there are less surprised with unexpected enemies. This armor set will become essential later in the game as it will grant major defenses against the guardians.

    You can purchase the entire set from the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. Each piece will cost 2000 Rupees and you will also have to provide 20 Ancient Gears, 5 Ancient Shafts and 3 Ancient Core when purchasing each piece.

    This armor set is essential in fighting the Guardians (the spider beasts). When the full kit is equipped, Link will cause extra damage with ancient weapons and they will also have more durability (last longer before breaking). Each piece will also increase the resistance to attacks from the guardians which is great considering these guys really pack a punch with their attacks.

    • Upgraded Defense : 84
