Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Champion Amiibo Functionality Revealed

Next week the new line of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo arrive. All four Champions are represented and will make anyone’s collection of figures look even better! Nintendo has revealed some of the functionality of the amiibo, of which each one gives Link a Divine Helmet to wear.



With the Champion amiibo coming out on November 10th, learn more about what each helm does in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!

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)
