The Charged Set is an armor set in Tears of the Kingdom.
Tears of the Kingdom
The Charged Set is an essential part of the Secret of the Ring Ruins Main Quest. After Tauro departs Kakariko Village to examine the Zonai Ruins in Faron, he can be found in a small cave near Dracozu Lake, with a mural depicting someone wearing the Charged Set and a Zonai Treasure Chest containing the Charged Shirt. After obtaining the other two parts, the Charged Trousers and Charged Headdress, from other small caves near the Dracozu River, Link must wear the full Charged Set while dropping a Zonai Charge on the altar at the "tail" of the river. This triggers lightning from dragon statues along the river, clearing the thunderhead from Dragonhead Island and making it easier to begin the Guidance from Ages Past Main Quest.
The Charged Set itself is in line with the style of other Zonai garb, with a copy of Farosh's horn on the headdress. It gives the Stormy Weather Attack effect, a more limited version of Attack Up which only works in thunderstorms. Despite being intended for use in thunderstorms, it gives no Shock Resistance and is not Lightning Proof, and so should not be used with metal equipment.
|Charged Headdress||South of Dracozu River|
|Charged Shirt||East of Dracozu Lake|
|Charged Trousers||West of Dracozu River|
Enhancing any part of the Charged Set requires that Link has unlocked as many Great Fairy Fountains as the desired star-level, plus the materials below. Upgrading the entire set to at least ★★ level gives the Stormy Weather Charge Set Bonus, reducing the stamina cost to hold a charge attack while in a thunderstorm.
