Among the many unique armor sets in Zelda Breath of the Wild, the Desert Voe and Radiant armor sets stand out because of some truly useful bonuses they offer. Considering every armor set in Zelda BOTW is specialized towards something, like the Rubber armor against shock damage, the Desert Voe armor and Radiant armor are useful for survival in the Gerudo Desert.
Gerudo Desert in Zelda BOTW is hiding a lot of secrets and collectibles that can be found by exploring its every nook and cranny. The problem arises with the scorching heat during the day that can deprive Link of his stamina and kill him if he stays too long in direct sunlight.
Gerudo Desert is particularly cruel because of the scarcity of shades and ruins you can find in it. The trouble is doubled with the sandstorms as you progress deeper into the desert towards the South, making it impossible to find your way in due course.
But every problem has a solution and this time it arrives in the form of two armor sets; Desert Voe and Radiant. These armor sets can be purchased from the same place in Gerudo Town. To enter Gerudo Town, Link needs to be dressed as a woman or he won’t be allowed at all. Don’t even try to sneak in.
Female Link dress can be purchased for 600 rupees from Vilia. He is available on the roof of the general store in Kara Kara Bazaar during the daytime and is dressed like a woman.
How to complete Secret Club’s Secret side quest
Once inside Gerudo Town, make your way to the bar. From the main entrance door, turn right and go under the archway. Climb the steps to the right to enter the Gerudo Bar. Go to the back of the bar and listen to the ladies sitting there.
The topic of their discussion is a secret fashion club but only the members who know the password can enter it. Obviously, they are not going to tell the Secret Club password to an outsider like Link.
Get out of the bar and climb the opposite stairs to enter another house. Go to the back room and press the interact button near the right window. This will allow Link to eavesdrop on the ladies and he will learn the password, which in every case is GSC(diamond).
Now go back and exit the area through the same archway. Keep going straight and enter the next area (archway to the left of main door). Interact with the first door to the left. The person will ask you about the password to enter the club.
If you answer wrongly, you will have to wait until the next day. Reply with the password you heard from the ladies to enter Gerudo’s secret fashion club. This marks the completion of Secret Club Secret’s side quest.
