Armor

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild treats armor very differently from the rest of their items. Unlike weapons and shields, armor does not deteriorate or ever break. Each piece of armor has its own effect to protect Link from different situations or boost some of his stats. There are three sections for pieces of armor: the head, the torso, and the legs.

Some pieces of armor have special effects upon equipping it. Mix and match armor to obtain various bonuses at once. Of course, if all three pieces in the same set are equipped, the effects will be maxed out. An additional set bonus will activate once all three pieces in a set are upgraded two levels, but all pieces in a set must be equipped, and not all armor sets have set bonuses. Armor is upgraded at the four Great Fairy Fountains. See the Great Fairy Fountain page for more info.
