Quick Links Sheik’s Mask Location (Desert Coliseum) Can the Sheik’s Mask be upgraded?
Although it was exclusive to amiibo in Breath of the Wild, Sheik’s Mask is available to everyone in Tears of the Kingdom. This piece of armor is an obvious reference to the Sheik from Ocarina of Time. While the Sheik himself does not appear, his mask will increase Link’s stealth if players choose to add it to his collection.
Sheik’s Mask is buried somewhere deep in the southwest region of Gerudo in Tears of the Kingdom. There are two chasms that lead to the Desert Coliseum, where the Sheik’s Mask awaits. Players are advised to stock up on arrows and weapons before entering the colosseum.PLAYER’S DAY VIDEO SCROLL TO CONTINUE CONTENT Sheik’s Mask Location (Desert Coliseum)
Sheik’s Mask is in the Desert Coliseum in the Gerudo region. Players can join via the East Gerudo Chasm (-2492, -3070, -0096) or the Birida Lookout Chasm (-3693, -1827, 0002). Also, while not mandatory, it is recommended to activate the Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower or the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower. This will make it easier to find chasms on the surface map. In fact, the East Gerudo Chasm and Birdia Lookout Chasm are very close to the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower and the Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower, respectively.
Once in the Depths, players should go to -4158, -3826, -0478. This is close to the Kasari Lightroot.
If players are starting at Birida Lookout Canyon, they should head south to Kasari Lightroot. They will encounter the following Lightroots along the way:Rasinaduk Lightroot (-4168, 2412, -0487) Gonatoyros Lightroot (-3846, -2945, -0487)
If players are starting out in the East Gerudo Chasm, they’ll want to head west to the Kasari Lightroot. Players will find these Lightroots:Amakawais Lightroot (-2439, -3343, -0465) Gataharak Lightroot (-3728, -3624, -0494)
Those departing the East Gerudo Chasm should beware of the Underground Gerudo Graveyard. This is full of Moth Gibdos Gloom and Gibdos Gloom. It’s easier to circle them. They will also want to look for Frox among Amakawais and Gataharak Lightroots.Desert Coliseum Monsters
Players who already received Majora’s Mask or Midna’s Mask may know what to expect from Desert Coliseum. Link will need to defeat five waves of enemies before he can clear the darkness from the treasure chest. Since the Desert Coliseum is buried, players cannot slide from the top. Instead, circle around the coliseum to coordinates -1344, -3711, -0480.
The Desert Coliseum is teeming with Horriblins, so players might want to have bows and Keese Eyeballs in their inventory. Attaching a Keese eyeball to an arrow will automatically guide the arrow towards the enemy for a critical/headshot. If players don’t want to waste materials on monsters, they can use ranged weapons or try aiming with regular arrows.
Try to do the Desert Coliseum after you get some of the sages. Riju’s Lightning ability can come in handy when facing Horriblins.Wave 1 Enemies: Horriblins (x3) Strategy: The easiest of the bunch. A strong bow coupled with an arrow to the head will eliminate all three. Because they aren’t too much of a nuisance, players should hold off fusing Keese Eyeballs/Heat Seeking Materials for arrows. Wave 2 Enemies: Blue Horriblins (x3) Strategy: These guys have more HP than normal Horriblins, but they can be defeated just the same. Don’t use any Keese Eyeballs with this wave either. Wave 3 Enemies: Black Horriblins (x2) Strategy: Black level monsters can be difficult to fight thanks to their HP and because they usually come with powerful weapons. There are only two, but players will want to shoot them from the ceiling with arrows. If players want, they can start fusing Keese Eyeballs now. Try to take them on one at a time if Link is losing HP. Wave 4 Enemies: Silver Horriblin (x1) Strategy: There’s only one this time, but it’s a Silver Horriblin. That means it’s tanky and has a weapon that can cut through Link’s health with ease. One way to eliminate this problem is to hit the Silver Horriblin in the head while he’s on the ceiling. Hurry up when he lands and hit him with a powerful weapon. If the Horriblin drops its own weapon, players must pick it up before the Horriblin can recover. When the Horriblin leaps backwards onto the ceiling, players will want to distance themselves from him and start hitting him again with arrows. Wave 5 Enemies: Horriblin (x1), Blue Horriblin (x1), Black Horriblin (x1), Silver Horriblin (x1) Strategy: Four can be intimidating, but this round shouldn’t be difficult if players eliminate Horriblin and Blue Horriblin first. Use Keese Eyeballs if they get too close. Black Horriblin could be next. It may be easier to stun the black and silver Horriblin so that they fall from the ceiling. While they are stunned, attack the Black Horriblin. Not stunning one of the Horriblins means it can attack Link while he tries to defeat the other.
Once everyone is defeated, the entrance to the coliseum will open. Before leaving, loot the treasure chest (now free of darkness) to obtain the Sheik’s Mask.Can the Sheik’s mask be upgraded?
The Sheik’s Mask can be upgraded by a Great Fairy. Starts at 2 Defense but can be upgraded to 16 Defense on full upgrade/4 stars:
4x1 Silent Princess x1 Star Fragment
6x2 Silent Princess x2 Star Fragment
9x4 Silent Princess x3 Star Fragment
4 stars (maximum)
