The Rubber Armor is perfect if you need some Shock Resistance in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom!

As you adventure across Hyrule, you’ll come across many elemental enemies, but they don’t come any more annoying than Shock. After all, being electrocuted causes you to drop your weapons!

Luckily, there is an armor set you can get almost straight away that greatly increases your Shock Resistance!

How to Get All Rubber Armor Pieces in Tears of the Kingdom

To get all three of the Rubber Armor pieces in Tears of the Kingdom, you must explore and find them in Whistling Hill Caves, Sarjon Cave, and Horon Lagoon Cave.

You can get all three as soon as you set foot in Hyrule at the start of the game. However, picking them up requires quite a lot of swimming, so we recommend upgrading your stamina, bringing along some stamina-replenishing items, or wearing the Zora Armor while you swim!

Rubber Armor

The Rubber Armor chest piece is located in Whistling Hill Caves. This is east of Hyrule Field Skyview Tower and just north of Teniten Shrine, at coordinates (-0069, -1047, 0020).
