If you’ve ventured down into The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom‘s spooky Depths, you’ve no doubt noticed it’s pitch black, making it pretty tough to navigate without a massive amount of brightbloom seeds to throw around. However, all hope is not lost. To assist you with this problem, you can get the Miner’s armor, which grants Link a glowing effect that lights the area around him in the game. Getting every piece will take a good bit of exploration on your part, however, so be prepared to put in some work. Here’s where to find all of the pieces of the set.

Where to find the Miner’s armor

There are three pieces in the Miner’s set: Miner’s Mask, Miner’s Top, and Miner’s Trousers. Finding them all will require you to visit three unique places in the Depths, but luckily, they’re all relatively close to a central location – the Great Abandoned Central Mine, to be exact. As such, that lower-middle point of the map makes a good starting spot for branching out to each of the chests containing the Miner’s set pieces. Look for a red X on the photos below for the locations of each piece of gear.

The best horses in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

There are plenty of ways to roam the land of Hyrule in Breath of the Wild, but few are as well-developed as horse riding. Not only does the game let you tame a variety of horses found in the wild, but you can customize your horse by changing its saddle, bridle, and even its physical attributes. Toss in the ability to discover Malanya, the horse god, and there's a lot to unpack with this down-to-earth travel method.

However, not all horses are worth taming and adding to your stable. And since horse taming is a time-consuming task, it's important to know the best horses in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild so you don't waste your day chasing a steed that's not much faster than Link.

Along with massive floating islands in the sky, there's a sprawling underworld to explore that's filled with secrets to discover and abilities to unlock. One such secret is Poes, which take a very different form than in past Zelda games -- instead of serving as an enemy, they're now an alternate form of currency.

How to get the Thunderbolt of Zeus in Fortnite
Thunderbolt of Zeus

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is underway and has brought with it some significant changes to the battle royale map that should shake up things quite a lot. This season is all about ancient gods descending onto the map, which is quite obvious by its multiple mythical locations like Mount Olympus and the Underworld. But these new landing spots aren't the only thing the gods have brought with them to Fortnite, as players can also get their hands on godly new items like the Wings of Icarus and Thunderbolt of Zeus. In this guide, we'll tell you where to find the latter and how it works.
How to get the Thunderbolt of Zeus and how it works
You can find the Thunderbolt of Zeus by defeating Zeus at Mount Olympus or by searching in Olympus Chests or Underworld Chests. It can also rarely be found in standard and rare chests.

This powerful lightning-based item can seriously dish out the hurt — provided you can use it in a situation where you won't be easily shot out of the sky. By pressing the fire button, you leap into the sky to begin unleashing a series of three massive lightning bolts on foes beneath you, with the first two bolts fired out rapidly and the final one a bit slower. You'll only get a total of three charges with this devastating weapon, so you'll want to be certain you make the most of each use and only let loose with it when you feel confident you can wrap up a kill.
