You will find a number of locations in the game, with very low temperatures. The effects can be seen on Link - at the beginning he will start to shiver from the cold, and after a short time his hearts will begin to wane. If you do not prepare in advance, you will quickly freeze and will be forced to repeat a given section of the game. There are several ways to protect yourself from the frost:
- Wear armour, which offers cold resistance - this is the most sensible option, it is worth having a set of armour, which will grant you resistance to the cold. Whenever you encounter a cold location, equip Link with this armour, in order to protect him from the deadly temperature. It is very worthwhile to acquire the Warm Doublet during a short quest in the Great Plateau.
- Eat a certain meal/drink a potion - a large number of meals and potions in the game offers resistance to low temperature. It is very much worth it to prepare some meals in advance, if you plan to get through some cold locations. A perfect recipe for cold resistance is a combination of Raw Meat from a boar, Hyrule Bass and Spicy Pepper, which will create a meal, that will grant you resistance to cold for 3 minutes.
- Equip Link with a torch - this is not a perfect solution, but in the face of minor frost, it should help. The heat from the torch will protect Link.
- Make campfires - you can create fires, at which you can warm your character. Once you warm up, run forward in a given direction, and after a while create another campfire, and so on. This technique you should get through the locations, but it is very inconvenient.
