How to get the wingsuit in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Using Link’s paraglider in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is always a fun time – we all love to glide peacefully across Hyrule, after all. But what we’re all really wanting is a wingsuit, right? Well, there’s good news for everyone here, as a wingsuit (formally known as the Glide Set) is available in the game and shouldn’t pose a significant challenge for you to obtain. That being said, you’ll still need to put a bit of work in, so let’s take a look at what you need to do.

How to get the wingsuit

The Glide Set is actually divided into three pieces, each requiring you to visit one of three islands high above Hyrule. When you arrive at each island, you’ll have to speak to the Zonai Construct there to begin a challenge where you must jump off the island and glide through some green rings. After doing this once, you’ll have an opportunity to try it again as a time trial, this time earning yourself one of the pieces of the Glide Set as a reward.

To reach each of these islands and begin their individual challenges, you’ll want to use Skyview Towers near their locations to aid you in getting the height needed to glide over to them. In the case of the Glide Mask at Valor Island, though, you may actually need to create a flying item from another island nearby to make it all the way over.

  • Glide Mask (Valor Island) – Closest Skytower is Mount Lanayru
  • Glide Shirt (Courage Island) – Closest Skytower is Lindor’s Brow
  • Glide Tights (Bravery Island) – Closest Skytower is Typhlo Ruins

Regardless of how you get to each island, you’ll eventually complete the Glide Set, granting Link improved mid-air controls that should undoubtedly assist you in navigating Hyrule’s skies.

How to upgrade horses in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The world of Hyrule is at its most expansive yet in The Legend of Zelda: Tears if the Kingdom. Not only is the entire map of Hyrule from Breath of the Wild back, with plenty of changes but there are also the sky islands and an entire underground zone on top of (and below) that. With that much ground to cover, Link is once again going to be relying on trusty steeds to get around. Sure, you could build a mechanical device, but those could never replace a friendly horse, especially once you've upgraded it. To help you train the best horse possible in Tears of the Kingdom, check out our full breakdown on how to upgrade horses.

We all love to customize the way our characters look in games, and while The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom doesn't possess a fully customizable Link, it does provide you with an opportunity to change the color of some of his armor. You can also dye your paraglider, giving you a sleek new look as you glide around Hyrule's skies. If you want to change up Link's style, make sure to read on for where you need to go to dye your armor and paraglider.
How to dye your armor

The first step to dying your armor is heading over to Hateno Village, which you may remember was an important spot in Breath of the Wild too. When you arrive in Hateno Village, seek out the Kochi Dye Shop. Inside, you can speak to an NPC known as Sayge – you can't miss him, as he's an interesting-looking fellow in a strange hat with bottles of dye on his belt.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be a tricky game, especially if you aren't prepared for the challenges ahead. Enemies can take you out quickly, so it's best to approach battles and quests with plenty of health and stamina, if possible. Upgrading your health and stamina in Tears of the Kingdom functions similarly to how it does in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and in this guide, we'll show you exactly how this mechanic works.
How to upgrade health

To upgrade your health, you need to first complete four Shrines. At the end of each Shrine, you're awarded with a Light Blessing. Much like its predecessor, there are Shrines scattered all throughout Hyrule (and the skies above), so there are plenty of opportunities to earn Light Blessings.
