How to get the Fierce Deity set in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

One of the most fun parts of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is tracking down and wearing the different outfits that are modeled after Link's prior incarnations. There are plenty of new and cool outfits introduced, of course, but sometimes you just want to feel a bit of nostalgia.

For fans of Majora's Mask, you will no doubt want to get the titular mask, but the Fierce Deity set is perhaps even more coveted. This was the most difficult mask to get in the original game, requiring you to trade in every other mask before the final boss fight, and it transformed Link into a fearsome warrior. While it isn't quite as hard to get as before, you will still need some help finding the entire set. Here's where to find every part of the Fierce Deity set in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to get the Fierce Deity set

This armor set is tied to a sidequest involving some treasure hunters named Domidak and Prissen. You may have already encountered them in a different sidequest. They can be found by the cliff near Cephla Lake Cave.

Step 1: You'll speak to the pair and learn about all the chests, but you'll find that they can't locate the one with any real treasure.

Step 2: Feed their nearby dog to have him lead you to the correct chest to open.

Step 3: This will get you the first part of the outfit, the Ember Trousers.

Step 4: This will trigger the "Misko's Treasure: The Fierce Deity" quest.

Step 5: To find the armor piece, go to the Akkala Citadel Ruins Summit Cave.

Step 6: The room you're looking for is on the southwest side of the central building, which you need to crouch under a hole to reach.

Step 7: Drop into the cave to pick up the armor.

Step 8: For the mask, you'll be going to Skull Lake north of Death Mountain, but warp instead to the Sitsum Shrine.

Step 9: Leap from this vantage point and glide over the cave so you can fall in.

Step 10: Beware the Stalkoblins and Stalnox inside, and claim your Fierce Deity Mask.

Step 11: Last up are the boots, which are in the Ancient Tree Stump.

Step 12: Follow the root that grows over the water to a wall of vines you can cut through.

Step 13: Follow the path, climb up some walls, and go through one more wall you need to cut through to reach your last chest.

If you return to Domidak and Prissen and go into the cave with all the fake chests again while wearing the full set, a new door will open with one final prize: the Fierce Deity Sword. Equip it to fully complete your set.

How to get the glider in Rise of the Ronin
A ninja flying with a glider in rise of the ronin.

The expanded open world of Rise of the Ronin is so big that not even a trusty horse and fast travel systemare quite enough to make traversal as fun and fast as needed. While it might seem a little fantastical, you won't complain about the inclusion of a glider once you get your hands on it and feel how freeing it is to soar above the rooftops and countryside. This has been a heavily marketed mechanic, and yet you can miss your first chance to get it if you don't explore a little before moving on with the main quest. If you want your ronin to truly rise, make sure you check out how to get the glider here.
Where to get the glider

The glider can be found only after you complete the first "big" mission in Rise of the Ronin called "Curtain Falls, Curtain Rises." The end of this quest will have you slay the boss and engage in a short dialogue with them. No matter what you pick, you will get both the papers you need to cross into Yokohama and a key to a storage room. You're not shown where that room is or even need to go there to continue, but missing it will mean losing out on glider access.

How to increase maximum carry weight in Dragon’s Dogma 2
The Arisen next to a bug in Dragon's Dogma 2.

One lesson you will learn very quickly in Dragon's Dogma 2 is that your Arisen isn't built to carry as many materials as you want it to. On a single trek through the world, you will be snagging fruits, herbs, monster parts, ore, weapons, and more. All that weight adds up fast, and you only need to go over half your weight limit before seeing negative effects. Sure, your pawns can shoulder some of that burden, but even then, you will need to start leaving things behind. There are no backpacks or stats you can increase to increase your carrying capacity, but that doesn't mean it isn't possible. You just need to look in a different place.
How to increase your maximum weight

There are two ways to increase your weight limit in Dragon's Dogma 2, but only one of them is permanent. That is to find and use special Golden Trove Beatles hidden in the world. These are big, gold glowing beetle-looking critters, usually clinging to trees or walls that you can grab like anything else. Once you find one, open your inventory and use it to permanently increase your weight by .015kg. That's a rather small increment, but there are dozens, if not over a hundred, of these bugs to find.

How to turn on item auto-pickup in Rise of the Ronin
A ronin on a path in Rise of the Ronin.

Rise of the Ronin is structurally a very different game from Team Ninja's previous series, Nioh. This new game not only features a new story, but a full open world as opposed to smaller stages to navigate. The games do share two main components: challenging combat and tons and tons of loot. Between all the materials you can snag while roaming the countryside and drops from fallen enemies, you will be collecting hundreds of items every hour. While mission rewards are automatically added to your inventory by default, normal items are not and require a button press to collect. Luckily, you can enable an auto-pickup option despite the game never telling you about it.
