The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – How To Unlock Zelda Gear Set | Switch Guide
Here’s how to acquire the Hylian Shield, Champion Tunic and Master Sword for Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch.
Bethesda has released their latest main installment to The Elder Scrolls series, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, to every platform possible. The latest platform to receive the video game is Nintendo’s hybrid console, the Switch.
Of course, being on a new console, especially being Nintendo, the development team did go back and add a fun little Easter Egg to the video game. If you own a Nintendo Switch copy then you can face against your foes with some Legend of Zelda gear.
How To Unlock The Legend of Zelda Gear Set
There are two real ways of gathering this Nintendo themed content in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Before we get too ahead of ourselves, the content available is a Hylian Shield, a Champion Tunic, and lastly, the Master Sword.
The first way to gain access to this content is by chance. By using The Legend of Zelda based Amiibo’s, players can scan them and gain random content. If you don’t get any of the gear set mentioned above, wait one day and try again. Repeat this process until you have everything offered by the developers.
Throat of the World Method
If you don’t own any of the Amiibo’s to use the first step then you can gather some of the gear set while playing the game. In order to find the Hylian Shield and Campion Tunic, players must travel to the peak of the Throat of the World, which is the highest mountain in the game, and locate a small cave which will hold chest with the two items.
However, there will be Parrthurnax to deal with at the peak so if you’re just starting out in the game then we suggest leveling up a bit before you opt to take down the boss. Regardless, this method will not grant players the Master Sword. Unfortunately, the Master Sword is only acquired by going through the Amiibo method.
