Among these sets, the Phantom Armor, inspired by its introduction in Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, stands out due to its unique attributes and the thrilling adventure it offers to players who seek it.
Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to get the Phantom Armor Set in Tears of the Kindom.
How To Get Phantom Set Tears Of The Kingdom
The first piece of armor, the Phantom Helmet, is located in the Overhead Cave at Puffer Beach.
You’ll need to travel South by Southwest from Highland Stable, past the Lake of the Horse God, until you reach Puffer Beach. There, you’ll find a cave with a hole in its roof.
Two rockets nearby will be your ticket to this helmet, which you’ll need to attach to shields and launch yourself through the hole.
Spotting the torn banner signifies you’re in the right place, and if you look for the large opening, and subsequently the chest, your reward is the powerful Phantom Helmet with a power of 8.
The second piece, the Phantom Greaves, lies in the East Barrens. Look out for several circular sand sink holes all leading to different caves upon sucking you in.
Proceed into this specific entrance, and you’ll find yourself in the Ancient Altar Ruins.
Here, the Phantom Greaves wait for you inside a chest once more, another valuable piece of the set.
Finally, for the third piece, the Phantom Armor, head south of Satori Mountain, towards the Tamio River. You’ll need to explore the Downstream Cave at the west end of this river.
After eliminating Horriblins, you’ll notice two paths. The right path leads you to a Bubble Frog, while the left path takes you towards Gloom hands. Your destination is the altar ahead.
However, to reach this altar, you’ll need an Elixir to counteract the slippery ground that you need to climb. You can craft this elixir using either Sticky Lizards or Sticky Frogs and with a Zonai Portable Pot if you need to cook on the go.
Alternatively, if you’ve got the Froggy Armor, this will be a breeze and you won’t need to craft anything.
Once you’ve made it to the altar, you’ll find the Phantom Armor in the chest, the final piece of the Phantom Armor set.
