Tears Of The Kingdom – How To Get The Zora Armor

Link needs to create the Zora Armor if he wants to save Zora's Domain in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The Zora Armor returns in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom as part of the Zora’s Domain questline. While technically part of its own sidequest, the Zora Armor is needed to progress through the game, as its power is needed to ascend a waterfall that leads to an important location.

To find the Zora Armor, progress through the Zora’s Domain questline and meet Prince Sidon at Mipha’s Court. Make sure to unlock the Ihen-a Shrine near Mipha Court and the Mogawak Shrine near Zora’s Domain to make use of Tears of the Kingdom’s Fast Travel system and save yourself a lot of hassle, as you need to travel to these two areas during this quest. Eventually, Yona (Prince Sidon’s fiance) will give you the “Restoring The Zora Armor” quest at Mipha Court.

How To Get The Zora Armor In The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Yona is in possession of the Zora Armor, but she needs one more component to fix it: an ancient arowana fish. In order to find out more information about this elusive fish, Yona advises Link to visit Dento, who can be found in the General Store in Zora’s Domain. Visit Dento at the back of the General Store, and he will tell you that the ancient arowana can be found near Mipha’s statue at Ploymus Mountain.

Fast travel back to Mipha Court and climb the staircase on the mountain. Refer to the map above and head to the treasure chest icon if you’re unsure where to go, as it’s near Shatterback Point. Once you’ve reached the top of the staircase, you should reach the area seen in the screenshot below, with the statue surrounded by water.

Next, you must jump into the water at the statue’s base and find the ancient arowana. There is no special trick for grabbing this fish: dash as quickly as possible and grab it when it enters your range. Once you have the fish in hand, descend the stairs, talk to Yona, and she will give Link the completed Zora Armor.

Once Link equips the Zora Armor, it will increase his swimming speed and allow him to ascend waterfalls. This can be used to continue the Zora’s Domain storyline, as Prince Sidon will eventually bottleneck the narrative during the “Sidon of the Zora” quest, telling you that you need to acquire the Zora Armor to reach the next area.
