Where to find Yiga armor in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Link is no longer bound to his traditional green tunic anymore. Starting in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and continuing on in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you will find dozens of new outfits and armor to try out. There are aesthetic differences, of course, but also bonus stats and effects. The Yiga armor, which is obviously themed after the stealthy Yiga clan, is great for those who want to play a bit more sneakily. If you want to blend in with the deadly assassins, here’s how you can get the Yiga armor in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to get the Yiga armor

Yiga armor, like many other armor sets in Tears of the Kingdom, has three pieces to complete the set: the mask, armor, and tights. Here’s a map with all three of their locations:

The mask is actually back up on the Great Plateau from Breath of the Wild. Once you arrive, find the old man’s house near Lake Hylia, which is now fortified with a defensive wall. Get over it and interact with the door to get ambushed. Take out the two Yiga soldiers and head inside to talk to Pitar. He will reward you with the Yiga Mask.

A similar story will play out getting the Yiga armor. This time go to the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab in the far northeast of the map. Approaching the door will trigger an identical ambush. Deal with theat, then head inside and talk to Konba to get yourself the armor piece.

Finally, for the tights, you need to find the cave marked on the map above called the Yiga Clan Maritta Branch in Great Hyrule Forest. You’ll know it from the Yiga Clan symbols on either side of the entrance. Head inside and face one more pair of Yiga Clan members. The trick here is to use Ascend to travel up from the central room to find Aliza and be rewarded with the final part of the outfit.

This set has low defense, each one starting with a base defense stat of 1, but all have the Stealth Up effect, which is perfect for silent infiltrations.

Elden Ring: How to find and use Rune Arcs
An Elden Ring player sits on their horse and looks out at a castle ahead.

Like everything else developed by FromSoftware, Elden Ring is painfully difficult. It'll take you hundreds of hours to discover everything it has to offer, and unless you're a grizzled veteran, you'll likely hit the "Game Over" screen thousands of times before your journey in the Lands Between comes to an end.

One way to help even the odds is by using Rune Arcs — a consumable item that lets you access Great Runes. You'll first need to unlock Great Runes to start properly using Rune Arcs, but once that's taken care of, you'll notice a big boost in your abilities.

How to get Wild Greens in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you might encounter the Gloom-Borne Illness quest, which requires you to find Wild Greens. However, there isn't actually an item called "Wild Greens," making this quest particularly tricky to complete. In this guide, we'll show you where to find Wild Greens in Tears of the Kingdom.
Where to find Wild Greens

The most important thing to note with this quest is the item you need is actually the Sundelion. The game is purposely vague, making it difficult to know what the actual item you need is. These items are found in various locations around Hyrule, but the most consistent way to find them is to visit a Sky Island around the following coordinates: -2,184, 0966, 1637.

How to find the Fifth Sage in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

For as open and freeform as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is, even allowing you to skip essentially every quest in the game and go straight to the final boss, you will be missing a ton by doing so. At the very least, most players will want to complete all the main quests before marching into the final encounter, which will take many hours. One quest is taking some adventurers a long time to complete, not due to its difficulty, but because they have no idea how to complete it.

The Fifth Sage quest is one of the most enigmatic in the entire game in what you're supposed to do to complete it. You're only given a single clue, and it's not a very helpful one at that.
