Ancient Gears are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Location and Uses

Breath of the Wild

In Breath of the Wild, Ancient Gears can be obtained by defeating Guardians or finding them in Treasure Chests. They're also sold by the travelling merchant Teli, who can be found on the road northwest of Hateno Village, as well as at the Slippery Falcon (Tarrey Town Branch). As is the case with all Guardian parts, Ancient Gears were made by the ancient Sheikah and used in their machinery. In spite of their age, they're still more advanced than anything else that exists during Breath of the Wild.[1]

Ancient Gears can be given to the Ancient Oven at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab to make various pieces of ancient equipment. Since they count as Monster Parts, they can be combined with critters in a Cooking Pot to make Elixirs. They can also be exchanged with Kilton at the Fang and Bone for Mon or used as an ingredient for Gray Dye at the Kochi Dye Shop.

One set of Armor and five independent helms require Ancient Gears in order to be upgraded at a Great Fairy Fountain. The Ancient Set, Vah Medoh Divine Helm, Vah Naboris Divine Helm, Vah Rudania Divine Helm, and Vah Ruta Divine Helm all need ten Ancient Gears to reach their second tiers.

  • Total for Ancient Set: 30 (0, 10, 0, 0) x3
  • Total for Vah Medoh Divine Helm: 10 (0, 10, 0, 0)
  • Total for Vah Naboris Divine Helm: 10 (0, 10, 0, 0)
  • Total for Vah Rudania Divine Helm: 10 (0, 10, 0, 0)
  • Total for Vah Ruta Divine Helm: 10 (0, 10, 0, 0)
