Climbing Gear Armor Set

    The climbing gear armor set is a massively valuable set to obtain as early as possible as you will spend a lot of time climbing in Breath of the Wild. The set, as you might guess, is tailored toward climbing and will give enchantment bonuses around this trait. Equipping all 3 pieces of this armor set will give Link additional stamina when climbing. This can be invaluable when you need to quickly get to the top of a tower, or are taking a “shortcut” to bypass some enemies. The climbing gear armor set does have good defense, but it is probably better to stick with the Ancient Armor set and just stick with this when climbing.
