Zelda Tears of the Kingdom: How to get Midna's Helmet below Eventide Island

If there's one thing Nintendo loves to include in their games, it's callbacks and references to titles they've released in the past - especially from the same series - and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is no different. We've already shown how players can get callbacks such as the Fierce Deity Set, the Biggoron Sword and even Majora's Mask; but how about some love for Twilight Princess? Thankfully, players can get Midna's Helmet, too - and it's even an especially useful item for players looking to explore the Depths in the early game.

Where to find Midna's Helmet

Much like with Majora's Mask, Midna's Helmet will require the player to complete a gauntlet within a Coliseum found underground within the Depths. Thankfully, it's nowhere near as grueling as the fight against increasingly more difficult Lynel's in the former's case - players will simply have to defeat a few waves of Bokoblins. The harder part about acquiring Midna's Helmet is getting to the Coliseum in the first place. The Lone Island Coliseum where the challenge can be found is only accessible via the Eventide Island Chasm; completely isolated from the rest of the Depths.

Lone Island Coliseum Location

This means that players will, naturally, have to find their way to Eventide Island first; thankfully, there's everything you need to make a vehicle to bring you across the ocean to Eventide Island near Lurelin Village; simply attach a Fan and a Controller to a plank of wood, and you're good to go. While there's other objectives you can complete on Eventide Island such as dealing with monster encampments - if all you're interested in is Midna's Helmet, you can immediately dive into the Depths and make a beeline for the Coliseum. This section of the Depths is entirely focused on the Lone Island Coliseum, so you won't have to worry about any distractions while you make your way to it.

Reaching Eventide Island

Once you've reached the Coliseum itself, much like with the other Coliseum challenges within the Depths, it will begin the moment you approach the chest in the center of the arena. Face off against waves of Bokoblins until they're depleted, and the chest will become interactable. Then it's simply a matter of receiving your reward! 

Midna's Helmet is especially useful for exploring the depths in the early game - and seeing as you only need to fight off against waves of Bokoblins to get it, players can reasonably attain it early on in their adventures. The 7 defense and innate gloom resistance is a solid upgrade for those of you that want to take a more serious crack at exploring the Depths. Best of luck grabbing the Helmet, and here's to your further adventures underground!
