In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom, there are a variety of unique armors that Link can find across Hyrule and its many new and interesting sky islands. Some of these armor sets are purely aesthetic, like the amazing Twilight Princess armor and even the Ocarina of Time armor. But, there are also armor sets that offer up great stat increases and some that even change the way the game is played. An amazing example of the latter is Glide Armor. This armor set gives Link an unprecedented amount of control in the air and allows you to dive and weave at insane speeds without fear of face-planting in the dirt.
In this guide, we will go over acquiring the Glide Armor in Tears of The Kingdom.
How To Get The Glide Shirt
To get all of these pieces of armor you will need to launch yourself into the sky and land on specific islands. Our launch point will be Lindor’s Brow Skyview Tower (-1901, 1243, 0297). Once in the air, you will want to make your way toward Courage Island (-2226, 0927, 1644).
All of these pieces of armor require Link to complete a test of skill. Each island has a Steward Construct that will give Link his challenge and get everything set up for him. But while everything is being set up Link needs to complete a shrine.
Once you land on the island find the Steward, complete the shrine, and then start the challenge. Every challenge attempt will cost you one Zonai charge so make sure to have at least five on hand to ensure even if you mess up a challenge round you’ll have some wiggle room.
The challenge will start once you make your way through the green ring. The challenge is simple! Make your way down into the pool below, through all of the rings in less than 35 seconds. Once you do this the Steward rewards you with a Glide Shirt.
How To Get The Glide Tights
The tower closest to the location of the Glide Tights will is at the Thyplo Ruins Skyview Tower (0338, 3123, 0184) and is north of the Great Hyrule Forest. Once in the air, you need to head south to Bravery Island (0243, 2092, 1980).
Once again, find the Steward and complete the shrine while he sets up the Dive Ceremony. Make your way to the green start circle and dive as fast as you can. This one is a bit difficult because they’ve introduced obstacles that will kill you if you head face-first into them on your descent. Make sure to dodge around them and land gracefully in the water below before 35 seconds is up. Now you have the Glide Tights.
How To Get The Glide Mask
Now we’re finally at our last location! Make your way to Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower (3845, -1306, 0539) which has freezing conditions so make sure to dress accordingly or bring a portion of food to negate the cold debuff. Once in the air, turn northeast to Valor Island (4471, -0840, 2624). There are a few obstacles along the the way, so we need to stop at the smaller islands to make it to our goal. These islands all have Zonai machines on them which will give you access to the next closest island. Once you arrive at Valor Island, it’s time to fly once again.
Talk to the Steward and ask him nicely to set up the challenge. Do your shrine and then its off to the races. The Dive Ceremony starts and you need to complete it within 35 seconds again. Once you dive into the pool below, pat yourself on the back. You now have a three-piece set of armor which gives you amazing control in the skies. Once it’s upgraded you can also unlock a very amazing set bonus! Trust us, it’s worth it.
