- Let's start
- The first shrine
- How to get the cold tunic

- Guide to cooking and status
Let's get started!
Initially you wake up in a bathtub as Link, listen to the mysterious voice and, after exploring the room, retrieve the Sheikah tablet and continue to the next room. Take your pants and shirt in the trunks and use the tablet to get out of the cave, at this point stop for a moment and take a look at the game world.
Go down to the right and talk to the old man picking mushrooms and branches along the way, select all possible dialogue options and listen to him. A few meters away from the old man you'll find the woodcutter's axe, your first weapon: it's not really the best, but for the moment it can go. At this point all you have to do is head towards the large building that the old man has indicated to you, along the way you will come across several enemies and you should take advantage of it to practice the combat system.
Arrive near the church, follow the indications of the voice and reach the cave indicated on the minimap, activate the tablet and enjoy the sequence.
The first shrine
When you are at the top of the tower, listen to the old man's advice and words, then go down into the hole just behind you. It's not difficult to jump so jump without fear, you won't die.
At this point it's time to take a little detour, go back to the big church-like structure that initially showed you the old man and explore the environment. On the left, as you may have noticed, there is a ladder: use it, climb up to the roof, turn left and climb up the bell tower to take the enhanced arch. At this point go down and head to the first sanctuary indicated on the map, enter and retrieve your first gadget: the magnet. Its operation is very simple, this tool allows you to open large metal doors and move heavy plates and blocks. Use it to make your way, simply move the first slab, while using the second as a walkway to continue. At some point you will find yourself in front of a wall of cubic blocks, use your magnet to detach one of them and open a gap.
At the end of this (very simple) sanctuary all you have to do is interact with the character, take the reward and go back to the old man who, unfortunately for you, is preparing to give you a nasty surprise...
How to get the cold tunic
In the course of your adventure you will have to reach shrines in icy and snowy areas and, unfortunately, going unprotected you will die immediately. So how do you do it? Simple, you have to get a frost-proof tunic! Here is the path to follow step by step:
1) The tunic is given to you by the old man we talked about just above, first you have to reach his little house in the southern part of the plateau (it's quite easy to find, it's near Mount Hylia).
2) Enter and read his diary, you must clearly make a dish known as mixed grill picapicca of which you know only two ingredients out of three: the meat (easy to get, just kill the wild boars in the forest) and the hot pepper (you can find it directly in the cottage or near the Boblin camp nearby).
3) The third ingredient is a fish known as Hyrule's Aspio, you find it in the water and you can safely kill it with your bow (you don't necessarily need a fishing rod). It is present, for example, near the Mau Ona Shrine.
4) At this point all you have to do is cook the ingredients in the pot next to the cottage and give them to the old man, the reward will be just the anti-cold tunic!
