The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Old Man locations, warm doublet recipe, paraglider shrine

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is Nintendo's first go at making an open world Zelda game, and it's bloody brilliant.

But as exciting as dropping into a massive landscape with nothing but the shirt on your back is, you may want a little help getting started - and the mysterious Old Man lurking around the Great Plateau starting area is your ticket to new abilities and opening up the map.

He'll task you with completing four shrines in exchange for a paraglider, which you can use to sail down to the lands below. Two of the shrines are in snowy areas and you can either cook up a batch of cold resistant recipes and try your luck at not freezing your gonads off, or you can make the old coot's recipe of choice and get a warm doublet for your trouble.

We've covered everything you need to leave the Great Plateau, and tick off the Old Man's to do list in the process.
