How to find Barbarian Armor in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

You can find Barbarian Armor inside the Crenel Hills Cave, which is east of Hyrule Castle, during your travels in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Once you reach the Crenel Hills Cave, you will need to carry out a series of specific instructions:

  1. Defeat the Stone Golem situated there.
  2. Once you’ve managed to do that, use a bomb on the luminous stone at the north side of the cave.
  3. Now, either throw it or equip a bomb with an arrow.
  4. Once you’ve blown up the rock, a doorway will now be exposed.
  5. You can now walk into the room and open up the chest to secure yourself the Barbarian Armor!

You may find other armor on your travels that you prefer to the Barbarian Armor. However, we strongly recommend you seek out and add this set of protection to your haul and try it out.

It’s as simple as that. Hopefully, now that you’ve got the Barbarian Armor sitting pretty in your inventory, check out our other The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom guides to help you out:
