"A gear used in ancient machinery. Despite being incredibly old, its build quality is leaps and bounds above anything built using current technology."
The Ancient Gear is a material found in Breath of the Wild. They can be obtained by defeating all types of Guardians, besides the Guardian Scout I, which can be found in Shrine of Trials, Hyrule Castle, as well as being scattered in the Overworld. This material can be traded with Kilton, in his shop, the Fang and Bone, for 10 Mon each, but its main purpose is creating ancient equipment at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. Ancient Gears are used in the manufacture of the Ancient Bow, as well as the enhancement of the Ancient Armor, including the Ancient Cuirass.
