The Vah Ruta Divine Helm is a piece of Armor in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

The Vah Ruta Divine Helm is obtained by scanning the Mipha amiibo with the amiibo Rune.[2] When worn, the Vah Ruta Divine Helm provides a basic level of both Guardian Resist Up and Swim Speed Up and also allows Link to view an enemy's remaining health.[3] When paired with the Ancient Cuirass and the Ancient Greaves and each piece of Armor has been enhanced at least twice by a Great Fairy, the three pieces of Armor provide Ancient Proficiency, a Set Bonus that increases the damage dealt from the Ancient and Guardian archetypes of weapons.[3]

The Vah Ruta Divine Helm is based on the head portion of Divine Beast Vah Ruta, which Mipha piloted as the Zora Champion.

    When any of the Divine Helms are equipped with Ancient Cuirass and Ancient Greaves (All armor items need to be upgraded level 2 ★★ or above), you’ll also trigger a set bonus, Ancient Proficiency, which increases the attack power of Ancient or Guardian series weapons. All of them will increase guard from ancient energy attacks, while defense level and required materials for level-up are the same as those of Ancient Helm. Enemies' remaining HP/full HP will also be visible like the Champion's Tunic.

    Additionally, there are specific effects for each item:
    - Vah Rudania Divine Helm: Flame Guard (Lv1)
    - Vah Ruta Divine Helm: Swim Speed Up (Lv1)
    - Vah Naboris Divine Helm: Electricity Resistance (Lv1)
    - Vah Medoh Divine Helm: Cold Resistance (Lv1)"
