Surviving in Tears of the Kingdom has become a hot topic, especially given how hard the enemies hit early in the game. This is where the Phantom Armor can really add value, given each piece of armor has +8 defense. Today I am going to walk through how to get the Phantom Armor, so you can easily survive battles in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.
The Phantom Armor is great for the early game, espcially if you find yourself going up against hard-hitting enemies. This guide is going to help you find all Phantom Armor pieces, which is definitely going to help in those battles. One of the benefits of the Phantom Armor is that it’s pretty easy to get. We don’t have to go down into the Depths for this one, we can find all pieces in chests in Hyrule, which makes the search much easier and quicker
Phantom Armor Head Piece Location
First of all, let’s find the head piece. Head to Popla Foothills Skyview Tower in the south of Hyrule, head southeast past the Highland Stable toward Puffer Beach. There’s a beach there on the southern shore.
Once you have made it to Puffer Beach find the rockets that should be laying there on the beach, or if you have some in your inventory as Zonai Devices, then get one out and fuse it to your sheild. Look up, and that’s where we want to be heading, and we’re going to use the rocket fused to your shield to get there.
Above Puffer Beach is Puffer Beach Overhead Cave. Make your way inside the cave, keeping an eye out for the Silver Horriblin. Take them out and then go deeper into the cave where you’ll find the chest, and it contains the head piece for the Phantom Armor. This gives you +8 defense and also buffs your attack too.
Phantom Armor Chest Piece Location
Next up, we have the Phantom Armor chest piece. This is a little more tricky to get because we have more enemies to deal with, but don’t let that put you off.
Make your way to Gerudo Higlands Skyview Tower, and open up your map. There’s a river that ends to the northeast and at that location is Tamio River Downstream Cave. Put a marker on your map and make your way there. Before you go into the cave, save your game as it may come in handy later.
The cave is filled with Horriblins, and they are easy to take out if you can knock them into the water with a carefully placed arrow, as they will drown, making fighting them much easier. Take out the Horriblins and then pick up all the loot in the room.
Once you’ve done this continue, and the cave will fork into two. On the right is a Bubbulfrog, get it, then come back to the fork. To the left are some Gloom Hands, and if you want to take them on and beat them, then you’ll have to face a Phantom Ganon. It is possible to avoid the fight all together.
You can climb all the way to the top while wearing the Froggy armor, although this takes a lot of stamina, so be prepared with a bunch of stamina based food or at least 3 stamina wheels if you are going to try this.
The other method involves gliding down to the left, then making your way around to the right and taking out the bricks in the wall either with bomb arrows, or Yunobo’s ability. Once you have broken the bricks, follow the path up and you’ll find the chest for the loot which contains the Phantom Armor chest piece, which has +8 defense and will boost your attack power.
Phantom Armor Legs Piece Location
For the final piece, make your way to Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower.
We’re looking for the Ancient Altar Ruins, and you can see the marks on the sand. There are many holes to drop down into the ruins, but we’re looking for the entrance with a specific statue. If you land in the wrong location you can always ascend up and out, then make your way back into the ruins, and hopefully get the right location.
When you find the right place, you’ll see the chest, open it up and you’ll find the Phantom Greaves, which give you +8 defense and an attack boost.
You can’t upgrade this armor, it’s pretty good as it is, which makes it the perfect starter armor in Tears of ther Kingdom.
Let me know what you think about the Phantom Armor.
