Climbing in the rain can be tricky, given Link slips and slides all over the place, making it difficult to get to those hard-to-reach places. This is where The Froggy Armor comes in, it helps you climb in the rain to stop you falling down. Today I’m going to walk through how to get all the Froggy Armor pieces, so you never have to worry about climbing in the rain in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.
The Froggy Armor is great, as you’ll get slip resistance, which gives you similar effects to drinking sticky exilirs. There are 3 armor pieces in total; Froggy Hood, Froggy Sleeve, and Froggy Leggings and getting this armor is a little different to other armor sets.
The Lucky Clover Gazette
As you start to discover stables in Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll notice one big difference from Breath of the Wild, given a newspaper has taken over Rito Stable. You’ll likely stumble upon this former stable when you visit Rito Village. The Lucky Clover Gazette offers up all the latest news to the people of Hyrule, and when you visit this stable you’ll pick up a side adventure called “Potential Princess Sightings” and from there you will need to visit most of the stables around the land.
To get this quest, have a chat with Traysi and Penn. Traysi will also introduce you to your reward, The Froggy Armor. Completing the quest will also net you some new fabric for your paraglider, which is a nice bonus.
