In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Link needs to face a lot of challenges along his way into the vastness of Hyrule. This will also require him to have the appropriate clothing and equipment to endure the weather. In the map of Hyrule, the game has used a proper simulation of the weather that affects the well-being of Link.
And cold is an enemy that players can’t overlook. So for players to get their way around the cold, here are a few ways to avoid getting hurt by it in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Cold resistance, or cold protection, is necessary to prevent the damage that is caused by cold. Without any protection, freezing temperatures will eventually kill Link. Cold protection is only required in certain parts of the map, like the Gutanbac Shrine of Hyrule. Here are a few tricks in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom to get cold resistance.
Here are a few different ways to keep link from freezing in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
1. Cold-resistant recipes in Tears of the Kingdom
There are several tools in Zonai’s device, one of them being the ‘Portable Pot’. Link can cook certain recipes that will keep him warm for a certain period of time. This comes in handy in the game until players manage to unlock cold armor. The number of meals cooked will be proportional to the heat it provides. So cook more and keep warm for longer. One of the easiest ways is to cook a pepper dish, which will increase the temperature and keep Link warm for a longer duration.
Sautéed Peppers: the spicier the better. Get more spicy chilies for the cold resistance to last longer.
Spicy simmered fruit: add as many as chilies you want to it. It won’t make a huge difference but it’s sure to grant enough resistance for a small amount of time.
Spicy Elixir: Scavenging the spicy Elixir from the dead bodies of monsters is an easy way to get some cold resistance for a small while.
Resistance through Snowquill Armor in Tears of the Kingdom
There are various types of armor available in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. With their own characteristics and protection against certain adversities. The Snowquill Armor is resistant to cold and a permanent solution to shielding from the cold. This can be found in Rito village. However, the armor has to be bought in parts rather than a full set. Here is a full set of armor with each part and pricing.
Snowquill Leggings: 1000 rupees
Chest piece of snowquill: 500 rupees

Alternate ways to keep Link warm in Tears of the Kingdom
While this will last only some time this might come in handy when the rest all fail or is not possible for players to pull off. Resting near the fire is one way to keep warm. Places like a cooking pot, bonfire, etc. Carrying a weapon on fire does not do the trick.
Now that players are aware of making sure to keep warm in cold weather or have protection against the cold, go out there in Hyrule and have fun. Explore the cold winter in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom without any worries!
