There are a lot of armor options in Breath of the Wild but if you consider yourself a Zelda purist, you might want to look like a traditional version of Link. What if I told you there was a way to get the same clothes Link wore in Twilight Princess for your Breath of the Wild Link?
You’ll need a few things before you are able to do this so hold your Epona. To get the complete Twilight Princess attire – Master Sword, Hylian Shield, Cap, Tunic and Pants – you’ll need to to have the following things:
- Super Smash Bros Link Amiibo (wait for MSRP)
- Breath of the Wild Zelda Amiibo (wait for MSRP)
- 13 Heart Containers
- Courage to walk into Hyrule Castle
Unfortunately, the only way to obtain the Twilight Princess clothes is through the amiibo. What I did was keep tapping the amiibo until it gave me a piece of clothing. If you save before you use the amiibo, you can tap it and if it doesn’t give you what you want, just reload your save and try again. You’ll have to do this over the span of three days since you can only use amiibos once per day unless you mess with your console’s actual clock.
The 13 heart containers are needed for the Master Sword. You will find the Master Sword in the Korok Forest once you traverse the Lost Woods.
The Hylian Shield is found in Hyrule Castle. It’s found in a place called the Lockup, a room with plenty of jail cells. This is located on the west side of the castle. I found it by taking a mining cart into the castle but I’m sure there are other ways to get to it. Once you explore the area enough, you’ll find a room with a bunch of bones in it. When you enter, the gate will close and you’ll fight a Stalnox mini boss. Just aim for his eye and start beating on him while he’s stunned. Near the end of the fight, his eye falls off and you have to deal a finishing blow to it.
Once you defeat him, a chest will be available holding the Hylian Shield which carries a whopping 90 armor rating. Once you get the shield, you’ll be able to get a duplicate from a character in Tarrey Town if something happens to it.
An alternative to all this is using the Breath of the Wild Zelda amiibo until she drops the Hylian Shield. You can use the same method to get this as you can use to get the Twilight gear.
