Best Armor

Barbarian And Fierce Deity Gear Is The Best Offensive Armor

The best armor for offensive builds is the Barbarian Set and the Fierce Deity Set. Equipping either set alone will increase Link's attack power by up to 1.5 times, and further enhancements will reduce its Stamina consumption during Charged Attacks. Make sure to prioritize obtaining at least one of these sets.

Bone Atk. Up Can Unleash Max Firepower When The Conditions Are Met

The effect of Bone Weap. Prof. is different from Attack Up and can be used simultaneously with the Attack Up food to gain the maximum damage you can do in the game. Use the Radiant equipment for defense while Evil Spirit is recommended for stealth use even with low defense.

The Best Defensive Armor Is The Ancient Hero's Aspect

The 'Ancient Hero's Aspect,' which requires clearing all 152 shrines, becomes the strongest defensive equipment in the game when fully upgraded, with a defense power of 84. Furthermore, the set bonus also enhances the beams of the Master Sword, making it undoubtedly useful in both offense and defense.
