How to upgrade armor in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

You’ll find the Stable Trotters at the Woodland Stable, southwest of the Eldin region. There, the musicians will explain that something has gone wrong. They’ll mention the Lucky Clover Gazette, so you’ll have to travel east of the Rito Village to find their newly renovated offices.

There, you’ll meet Traysi, the Lucky Clover Gazette’s Editor, and she will ask you to verify reports that assure that Zelda has been spotted near different stables. Once you initiate that quest, travel back to the Woodland Stable to talk with the Stable Trotters again.

After a short conversation, you’ll need to use Ultrahand to fix the broken wheels of their carriage. Furthermore, you’ll need to equip your horse with the Towing Harness and use Ultrahand again to attach the carriage to it. Once you do that, take the Stable Trotters to the Great Fairy. There, they’ll play a song and the Great Fairy will reveal herself so you can upgrade your armor.

Players will want to note that they’ll need to complete the Stable Trotters’ side quests to reveal each Great Fairy and get their blessing. When you do that, you’ll be able to come back any time you want for more upgrades.

Completing the quest requires that players find the scattered members of the group and solve the issue that’s preventing them from going back to the Stable Trotters. Luckily, everything you need to complete the sidequest is near the stables and the Great Fairy Fountains you’re trying to unlock.
