Find out how to equip armor set bonuses with the new amiibo.
Nintendo has announced new details regarding the functionality of the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champions amiibo.
Previously, Nintendo’s September Direct revealed the four upcoming Champions amiibo will each unlock a unique Divine Helm. Now, Nintendo revealed on Twitter today when any of those helms are equipped with Ancient Cuirass and Ancient Greaves — all of which need to be upgraded to level 2 or above — you’ll also trigger an armor set bonus, which increases the attack power of Ancient and Guardian series weapons.
The armor each champion unlocks represents the Divine Beast they’re connected with — Vah Rudania for Daruk, Vah Ruta for Mipha, Vah Medoh for Revali, and Vah Neboris for Urbosa.
Each helm will increase your guard against ancient energy attacks. Enemies’ HP will also be made visible, just like the Champion’s Tunic.
Additionally, we learned the specific effects for each item:
- Vah Rudania Divine Helm: Flame Guard (Lv1)
- Vah Ruta Divine Helm: Swim Speed Up (Lv1)
- Vah Naboris Divine Helm: Electricity Resistance (Lv1)
- Vah Medoh Divine Helm: Cold Resistance (Lv1)
The Daruk, Mipha, Revali, and Urbosa amiibo will launch on November 10.
