The Ancient Soldier Gear is an Armor set consisting of the Ancient Helm, Ancient Cuirass, and Ancient Greaves. Each piece of the Ancient Soldier Gear set can be purchased at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab where Cherry will construct them from various ancient materials.

Each piece of the Ancient Soldier Gear set reduces the damage taken from Guardians and weapons with the Ancient Technology property. Wearing the set provides the Ancient Proficiency set bonus, which increases damage from all ancient weapons by 80%. In addition to its useful bonuses, the armor has a very high defense level, on par with the Soldier's Set.
