"These greaves use the same technology found in Guardian automata, which reduces damage from ancient weaponry.."
The Ancient Greaves are a type of leg armor found in Breath of the Wild. They have a base defense of 4 and decrease damage taken from Guardian laser attacks. They can be obtained by visiting the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab and speaking to Cherry, and exchanging 20 Ancient Gears, 5 Ancient Springs, 3 Ancient Cores, as well as 2000 Rupees for it. This trade can only be completed after the Ancient Furnace outside of the lab has been lit.
Enhancing Armor requires that Link has unlocked as many Great Fairy Fountains as the desired star-level.
