In the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll need to dress for the occasion if you’re going to survive the perilous elements of Hyrule and its adjacent regions. One of the trickier armour sets you’re going to want to find is the Miner’s Armour.

Here, we’ll go through where to find each piece of the Miner’s Amour set in the game, including map locations to make things a little bit easier.

To get to the Miner’s Mask in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’re going to need to head West of the Great Abandoned Central Mine area in The Depths.

Along the way, you’re going to find several Lightroots, including the Tatayam Lightroot. This is the closest Lightroot to the Miner’s Mask and is incredibly handy as a future fast-travel location.

After activating the Lightroot, continue until you find the Abandoned Kara Kara Mines. You’ll see a treasure chest below a large, round central platform and a Steward Construct that can be activated for some useful information.

Open the treasure chest and you will find the Miner’s Mask inside.

As you travel through Hyrule, you’ll come across several Chasms across the region. These Chasms, after a lengthy dive, lead you to The Depths. It's an area below the kingdom that is completely engulfed in darkness.

While ordinarily, you’ll need to stock up on Brightbloom Seeds, the Miner’s Armour acts as its own light source, adorning Link in little lamps to help cut through the darkness and making your traversal of The Depths much smoother.
