Exploring the Gerudo Desert in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is hard enough with the sand shroud, but you also have to deal with unbearable heat during the day and unbearable cold at night. The Snowquill Armor set from Rito Village can help you out at night with its cold resistance, but you’ll need a new set with heat resistance for the daytime temperatures.

Our Desert Voe Armor set guide will tell you where to find each piece of the Desert Voe Armor set in Tears of the Kingdom and how to upgrade the Desert Voe Headband, Desert Voe Spaulder, and Desert Voe Trousers.

Desert Voe Headband location

Once you depart the Gerudo Canyon Stable heading southwest, your first destination will be the Kara Kara Bazaar.

Speak with Saula at the armor shop (tent) there to buy the Desert Voe Headband for 450 rupees. This one piece of the armor set will get you enough heat resistance to get started, but for the full effect, you’ll have to go to Gerudo Town.

Desert Voe Spaulder and Trousers location

When you buy the Desert Voe Headband from Saula, she’ll tell you about the secret shop behind Fashion Passion in Gerudo Town — if that sounds familiar, there was a similar side quest in Breath of the Wild.

Make your way through the sand shroud some more until you arrive in Gerudo Town itself (and hit Soryotanog Shrine while you’re at it). Fashion Passion is to the left after you pass through the main gate, but on your first visit, the town is deserted (except for some Gibdo wandering around).

Along the northwest wall of Fashion Passion, there’s water falling from the roof down into a cave below the building. Drop down inside.

Not far in, there’s a breakable rock wall on your left. You’re going to be doing a lot of rock-smashing here, so equip your best mining tools. Smash through, and then keep breaking through rock walls until you hit a left turn. Climb the wall there, and keep smashing your way forward.

You’ll eventually come to a dead end with pillars along the wall. Use Ascend in the middle of that area and you’ll pop up inside Fashion Passion. There’s no secret password this time — Greta will sell to you just because you made it there.

The Desert Voe Spaulder costs 1,300 rupees and the Desert Voe Trousers will run you another 650 rupees.

Desert Voe Armor upgrade costs, effect, and set bonus

Wearing any one piece of the Desert Voe set will get you the Heat Resistance effect — the same effect you’d get from a spicy meal or elixir. Wearing multiple pieces of the set will increase the effect’s potency. Once you enhance the entire set to level two and wear all three pieces, you’ll get an extra Shock Damage Resist set bonus on top of the Heat Resistance.

You’ll be able to upgrade the pieces of the Desert Voe Armor at a Great Fairy in exchange for the following:

  • 1-star (5 defense): 3 White Chuchu jellies, 10 rupees
  • 2-star (8 defense): 5 White Chuchu jellies, 3 cool safflinas, 50 rupees
  • 3-star (12 defense): 5 Ice Keese wings, 3 Ice-Breath Lizalfos tails, 5 chillshrooms, 200 rupees
  • 4-star (20 defense): 5 Ice-Breath Lizalfos horns, 10 Ice-Breath Lizalfos tails, 5 sapphires, 500 rupees

To fully upgrade each piece of Desert Voe armor, you’ll need 24 White Chuchu jellies, 9 cool safflinas, 15 chillshrooms, 15 Ice Keese wings, 15 Ice-Breath Lizalfos horns, 39 Ice-BReath Lizalfos tails, 15 sapphires, and 2,280 rupees.
