Sheikah text on the roof of Sheikah Towers - SHEAKTOWER- S HEIKAHTOWE R
Dialogue of the Old Man at the top of Mount Hylia (when he gives the Quilted Shirt/Warm Doublet) Ahhhh... Quite the view from up here. [B-b-breathtaking...] This may be the best place to get a full view of the entire plateau. Did you know that there's a Scope on your Sheikah Slate? Look through it, and you can stick a pin anywhere you'd like to mark on the map.

Those pins will appear on your Map as reference points for your travels. Just stick a pin where you want to go! [How'd you know...?] Har har har! Just a few tricks I've picked up over many, many years in the wild... You may take my advice or leave it. Go ahead and take a look when you're so inclined.

You did well to make it this far wearing that. Please take this Quilted Shirt as a reward for your tenacity. Be sure to try it on if you get too cold. Like...now, perhaps?

Ahhh... I enjoy gazing out at the world from here. [B-b-breathtaking view...] This may be the best place to get a full view of the entire plateau. Did you know about the scope on your Sheikah Slate? Look through it, and you can stick a pin anywhere you'd like to mark on the map.

Just a few tricks I've picked up after many, many years in the wild... You may take my advice or leave it. Go ahead and take a look if you feel inclined to do so.

You did well to make it this far without the proper clothing. Please take this warm doublet as a reward for your tenacity. I assume you will want to try it on right away, yes? I thought you might be eager to see how it looks... It's quite fetching! Well, I suppose it matters not. It is yours now. Do take care to put it on before you get too cold, though.
