Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Guide: How To Get The Green Tunic With Or Without Amiibo
As everyone knows, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild shows Link in not-so-familiar garbs and armors, but that doesn't mean his iconic green tunic is off the table.
Generally, there are two ways to get the armor: use amiibo or find it in the game. Needless to say, the first option is the route that's more expensive but comes with instant results, while the latter requires more time and dedication on the player's part.
How To Get Link's Green Tunic With Amiibo
For the easier but pricier way, you're going to need at least four amiibo to complete the Hero, Hero of Time, Hero of the Wind, and Hero of Twilight sets, which all provide the same 20 defense points per piece and bonus that powers up the beam attack of the Master Sword.
In terms of appearance, it should be cleared up that the green tunics in store look like the ones that Link has worn in past Zelda games, starting from the good ol' NES days.
Now, to start things off, there's the 8-bit Link amiibo, and it coughs up the Hero set.
Last but not least, there's the Super Smash Bros. Link amiibo, and it'll hand over the Hero of Twilight set.
Remember, you can only tap each amiibo once every 24 hours, and getting an armor piece isn't a sure deal, so you might have to exercise a little patience.
In our previous Breath of the Wild amiibo guide, we've covered how to get Epona, the Hylian Shield, and Wolf Link, and aside from them and their respective figurines, these armor sets are some of the items worth acquiring through amiibo.
How To Get Link's Green Tunic Without Amiibo
Unique to Breath of the Wild, this green tunic called the Hero of the Wild set can only be acquired through hard work.
Step 1: Finish all 120 shrines to get the side quest A Gift from the Monk.
Step 2: Go to the Forgotten Temple. You can teleport to the Rona Kachta Shrine to get to the end of the temple quickly.
Step 3: Check behind the shrine to find three chests, each one containing a piece of the Hero of the Wild set — Cap of the Wild, Trousers of the Wild, and Tunic of the Wild.
Note: Like the others, the set also provides the same bonus that improves the Master Sword's beam attack.
That's pretty much all there is to it to get Link's green tunic in Breath of the Wild.
It should also be mentioned that word on the street is there are more green tunics that can be acquired with yet-to-be-released amiibo, which have been discovered through datamining.
In other words, there's more than meets the eye in Breath of the Wild — when it comes to green tunics, at least.
