Warm Clothes in Tears of the Kingdom
A detailed guide on warm clothes in Tears of the Kingdom.

Maintaining your body temperature is an essential part of Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. If taken lightly, the harsh winter will kill you before you realize it. In addition, Tears of the Kingdom introduces players to a cold terrain quite early on while players are still familiarizing themselves with game mechanics in Great Sky Island. Therefore, it can be quite difficult to understand how to stop damage taken from the cold. Continue reading to find out the location of warm clothes in Tears of the Kingdom, along with other ways of resisting cold while exploring snowy lands and mountains.

Key Takeaways

  • Players will run across multiple snowy/cold terrains in Tears of the Kingdom, one of them being on Great Sky Island.
  • Extreme cold weather can inflict damage on a player, eventually leading them to death if not taken care of it.
  • There are two ways of resisting cold, one by wearing warm clothes in Tears of the Kingdom, and the other by eating certain dishes.
  • You can obtain your first set of warm clothes on Great Sky Island, on a raised platform right of Gutanbac Shrine.
  • The second warm clothes set is available for purchase in Brazen Beak in Rito Village.
  • There is also a Vah Medoh Divine Helm and a Ruby Circlet that players can obtain later on in their playthrough for extra protection against the cold.

  • These spicy dishes are mostly made of Spicy Peppers (except Spicy Elixir), and they include Spicy Sauteed Peppers, Spicy Pepper Steak, Spicy Omelet, and Spicy Simmered Food.
  • You can craft a Spicy Elixir by combining 1x Summerwing Butterfly OR Warm Darner + Any Monster Part in a cooking pot.

Where To Find Warm Clothes

There are two ways players can keep their body temperature warm while exploring a snowy or cold area. You can either wear a cold resistance outfit or eat certain food to keep the body temperature in check. Here is how to collect wearable items in Tears of the Kingdom:

Obtain From A Treasure Chest

The first location of warm clothes is nearby Gutanbac Shrine on Great Sky Island which players visit before the Hyrule Kingdom. Here you will complete some challenges associated with Shrines. The last shrine players face is the Gutanbac Shrine. This time, the shrine gifts Link a new ability called Ascend. Follow these steps in order to obtain your new cozy attire:

  1. After obtaining your newfound ability, head out of the Gutanbac Shrine and turn right.
  2. You will notice a huge tree trunk with an opening right above a raised platform.
  3. Choose Ascend and pass through the ceiling above, landing right outside the tree trunk.
  4. Enter the tree trunk, and the chest is hiding in a corner on the right.
  5. Open the chest, and you will obtain “Archaic Warm Greaves,” marked with “cold resistance.”

Now wear the newly achieved outfit and save yourself from the cold terrain you’re currently in.

  • Note: Completing Gutanbac Shrine is necessary as you must unlock the Ascend ability in order to reach a chest containing Warm Clothes.

Purchase From Brazen Beak

Other Ways Of Cold Resistance

Covering yourself with thick layers of cloth may not be enough in certain situations. However, if you carry some spicy consumables, you’ll buy yourself extra cold resistance on your hands, along with a health increase. These consumables will help you keep your health intact in extreme cold. Here are some consumable items for the cold resistance effect.

The Spicy Sauteed Peppers

  • In-game Description: Grants low-level low resistance. The spiciness of these sauteed peppers has been broken by the heat for a sweeter taste.
  • Recipe: 1-5x Spicy Peppers. Throw them in a cooking pot, and the dish will be ready. You can find these Spicy Pepper bushes in abundance in and around the Pit Cave, located before Gutanbac Shrine.
  • Cold Resistance Duration: Depends on the number of Spicy Peppers you use. One spicy Pepper provides 2 minutes 30 seconds resistance. If you add up to 5 Spicy Peppers at a time, the cold resistance effect goes up to 12 minutes 30 seconds.
