Tears of The Kingdom - How to Survive in Hot Weather

New players will have some trouble when visiting the hot section in the Gerudo desert, the heat will cost them a lot of food and even some significant chunks of the health bar. Depending on how far the player has progressed in the game, the heat can be dealt with in a variety of ways. From chilly food to cooling clothes to some strange and odd weapon combination, there are a lot of ways to deal with the heat on Tears of The Kingdom. In today’s article, we’ll show you how to acquire heat resistance utilizing numerous strategies that can work for both expert and beginner players.

Cooking Food With Chill Effect

Where To Find Food With Chill Effect?

Food with a chill effect can be quired easily in Gerudo Town market, you can access Chilshrooms may be obtained by visiting the Mushroom seller, while Hydromelons can be obtained by visiting the fruit shop on the other side of Gerudo Town market. If you’re short on cash, don’t worry; you can find some Hydromelons by traversing the desert outside Gerudo Town; these fruits may be found growing in pairs or even threes at a time.

How To Cook Food with Chill Effect?

Cooking meals to survive the heat is as easy as it gets; simply pick a cooking pot and begin mixing ingredients. For example, here I’m combining meat with Hydromelons to create a meal that boosts both health and heat immunity; you may also cook using Chillshrooms for different effects. The immunity time will vary depending on how many Chillshrooms/Hydromelons you utilized, providing a meal that may be used both short and long-term.

Using Heat Resistant Clothes

Heat-resistant clothing is another simple approach to venture into the desert without being concerned about the continual heat. The simplest way to obtain these clothing pieces is to go to the secret shop in Gerudo Town; if you don’t know where it is, check out our tutorial here on how to get there. As you can see in the image, I obtained the full Desert Voe set, which allows Link to explore the desert without the use of any equipment or meals/elixirs.

Fusing Ice-Based Monster Parts with Weapons/Shield

Players may encounter many ice-based monsters when visiting snowy places in Hyrule; defeating these dangerous adversaries will reward you with ice-based monster parts. These components can be combined to create ice-based weapons that can greatly aid you in combat, but that’s not all they can do. Equipping ice-based weapons or shields can keep you cool in hot environments without requiring any extra food or clothing. To stay cool when hiking into burning areas, simply fuse one of these ice-based monster parts to your weapon/shield and equip it.

Where to find Ice-Based monster parts?

Ice-based monster parts can be found exclusively in snowy areas, you can either roam the surface looking for Ice Lizards or you can also visit caves there for more parts and many more. My best bet is to look around the snowy mountain in Rito Village, you can find some Ice-Breath Lizalfos and a ton of caves to explore.
