Where To Find Climbing Gear
The final piece of the Climbing set can be found in the Chaas Qeta Shrine in a Major Test of Strength. It’s a challenging combat test so it’s not available as early as the other items in the set. I would highly suggest some good food and if you can, grab the Hylian Shield first.

  • I profited $104k last year by doing an online job and I was able to do it by w­orking part time for several hrs a day.

    Don’t foget the Royal Bow with 50Atk found in Zelda’s room, the Ancient Gear (arrows, swords, shields, chainsaw, armor pieces) forged at the observatory place near the labyrinth island, and the costumes produced by the various Link Amiibo.

    • AultinBarltino

      that bow’s actually a Royal Guard’s Bow. while it has great power, its durability is low.

  • Paige McNulty

    The Hylian Shield is breakable, mine broke after a while. But you can purchase another one for 3,000 Rupees.

    • PaperNay .

      Where can you get another one? x:

      • Paige McNulty

        You have to purchase a home in Hateno Village, then you do the Terry Town Quest and you’ll unlock the shop where you can buy it.

  • Ross Wilson

    The quilted doublet doesn’t provide 7 defense it provides four and your climbers bandana provides three making it a total of 7.

    • Jacob D Anderson

      That’s wrong too, it provides 1 defense, the hylian pants provide 3, and the bandanna provides 3, totaling 7.

      • Ross Wilson

        You are correct, I realized that once I posted it but was too busy playing the game to come and correct my mistake. I don’t get how people miss that it’s adding up the sum of all parts.

  • Jacob D Anderson

    Why the Knights Bow is on here in the Rare section is beyond me. It’s not that rare, I have 3 of them. You can get them from chests, enemies, etc. It’s not a unique weapon, it’s just another member of the “Knights” family of weapons and shields.
