Top mysterious weapons in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom from Kitchen Chores to Clothing
Quite possibly we are not alone in stating that when we started The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and. We are still with the fresh memory of my time in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we were the only ones to prioritize the massive search and visit the Shrines above anything else, the main or secondary mission included, since to be honest, how can we not want to recover all those containers of heart and vigour that a mummified Ganondorf has ripped from us from the first minute?
Especially, if one takes into account that their survival is on the edge in the early stages of the game, since practically any enemy can give a good account of our low health although, to be honest, this is something that is replicated in the world of Hyrule for many hours later.
Who has not been walking quietly with life to the fullest and has suddenly received a good blow that has left Link stiffer than the wetsuit? And while it’s absurd to deny the importance of Heart Containers to better withstand enemy onslaughts, the time has taught me that Extra Heart Containers play a more secondary role in keeping Link alive during his perilous journey than others. Elements, such as improved and updated equipment and, even more, important and accessible from the first minutes, the kitchen, that great forgotten.
It is probable that someone still, skeptical, will raise an eyebrow and doubt our words. How is cooking going to be more important than heart warmers? And as for clothing, wouldn’t it be better to go with twenty heart containers than with six or seven, even if the price to pay was to take Link naked (don’t do it, for dignity’s sake)? The reality is that no.
Starting with the kitchen, as it is the most accessible mechanic from the early stages of the game, carrying your inventory full of elaborate dishes can save your life not only by recovering lost hearts but also by generating improvements such as increased defence, higher attack values, various resistances and even extra hearts. The best of all? That there are thousands of ingredients that you can add to the pan very soon and, on many occasions, they do not demand large quantities of them.
The mixture, meat, mushrooms or fish, does not matter much, as long as you carry the inventory to the top of varied cooked dishes for different situations. Also, it is important to remember that, among the possible Zonnan gadgets in Zelda, there is a single-use portable saucepan that can save your life (tell that to yourself from a while ago exploring the depths and cooking Solirios like a brainless person). And it is that the chances of survival go beyond recovering hearts, because in the absence of clothing that protects you against aggressive climates (extreme heat or cold), the users can always cook with igneous berries or icy watermelons while exploring the subsoil, the luminous ingredients (fish or mushrooms) and the radiant ones (Solirios), are a NEED, like this, in capital letters.
Upgrading your outfit makes a big difference
As for clothing, it is certainly somewhat more problematic than in the case of cooking, since the ingredients are frequent and generally easy to obtain, but helmets, bibs, or pants, on the other hand, require a greater investment of time due to our part, since except for some specific exceptions (such as the equipment that is acquired in the large regions of the story itself). It is necessary to deviate and explore conscientiously to acquire good equipment, do mission chains, defeat a handful of enemies in special conditions etc Likewise, after getting the different pieces that make up a specific set.
The gamers have to visit the Great Fairies to improve it. But not beforehand carry out the chain of missions linked to the cheerful troupe of musicians who go from post to post. Even in those, now you have to pay a specific amount of gems and pay for a series of materials to make all the improvements to each piece of equipment. It sounds a bit tedious, we know, but believe me when we say that it is worth it, since the difference is clear.
If at this point the gamers are still not so sure that the clothing, especially the one enhanced thanks to the improvements of the Great Fairies, makes a noticeable difference. We explain a simple experiment that anyone can carry out. Eager to do a simple test, we approached the white Moblin that is near Link’s plot, completely naked (ie, dressed without any clothing). When they landed their first hit on Link, with a total of 26 heart containers all of them full, we were left with a total of 6 and a quarter.
Now, we did the same test again dressed in two fully-improved garments and one to two stars, only receiving a damage of just 6 hearts with the same blow. In the last test, we carried out wearing the initial equipment (archaic sandals and archaic robe), and although the protection was not even close to the above, Link resisted with 10 and a half hearts. That is to say, Even with the most basic outfits (ie, not upgraded once), there’s a difference of a little over four hearts between going with nothing or wearing something, even if it’s the worst thing you have.
Needless to say, the difference is much more pronounced when wearing upgraded clothing (and keep in mind that only two of the three clothing items were fully upgraded). To all this, we must add that many of the garments, when forming a set, also provide benefits (such as the attack improvement associated with the set of the Fierce of the Deity).
Heart containers continue to be an important complement and, ultimately, the point of this article was to focus on other elements that may be less relevant and a priority. But that undoubtedly does much more for the survival of Link than the containers themselves (more if one takes into account that you need four luminous orbs to exchange for each heart). Possibly, for all those who have already played and even completed the title.
This is still a curiosity, something that it is likely that, like a server, they have learned by force from playing. For others, those who have not yet begun their magical epic, this is a full-fledged “warning to sailors”., information that will maximize your chances of survival. A kind of road map to follow. To the latter especially, we trust that this will be useful to you.
