Kakariko Village’s clothing shop in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is home to two great armor sets. Both the Stealth Armor and the Radiant Armor can be found in this shop, but when you first arrive, you’re in for a rude awakening.

Each individual piece of the set costs 5,000 rupees to buy, that’s 30,000 rupees to buy them all, which is ludicrously expensive. Even following our rupee farming guide will struggle to get you that much. Thankfully, there is a way to lower the price. As the shopkeeper explains, their grandmother is deathly sick from the Gloom, and they need to up their prices to pay for the medicine.

We’ll tell you how to complete the Gloom Borne Illness quest to restore the armor to its original price.
