    Love this guide, definitely helped me out up until the last upgrade tier.. It’s not a white-maned lynel that you need to kill, its a SILVER-maned lynel thats in the depths 🙂

    Since the ancient armor is actually a full set of headgear, armor, and leggings in one item, the prices for each upgrade are actually triple the actual amount. I know this because I actually have the set and checked. The first level is 30 rupees, the next one is 150, next is 600, and the last level is 1,500.

    1. Thanks for the clarification!
