Set Bonus

Set Bonuses are a mechanic in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Set Bonuses are effects given to Link when he equips certain complete Armor Sets that have each been enhanced at least twice by a Great Fairy.[2] Set Bonuses are related to, and sometimes the superior forms of Effects, which are abilities granted to Link upon wearing individual pieces of Armor or by consuming certain Food. The Phantom Equipment, Soldier's Set, and Well-Worn Outfit are the only Armor Sets that do not grant Set Bonuses.

There exist unnamed Set Bonuses that affect how various characters behave around Link. For example, the Dark Series, Phantom Ganon Set, and Tingle's Set cause people to react in fear of Link. Similarly, the Gerudo Set allows Link to freely move about Gerudo Town without accusation of being a voe. Despite this, Greta,[3] Jules,[4][5] Paya,[6] Quince,[7] and Muava will be able to see through Link's disguise.[8][9] Though they are not properly part of the Gerudo Set, the Sand Boots, Snow Boots, and Thunder Helm all provide the same properties that allow Link to freely walk throughout Gerudo Town when paired with at least two other corresponding pieces of Armor.
