Zelda: Breath of the Wild Phantom Ganon Armor - completing the EX Treasure Dark Armor quest

The new Champions' Ballad DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a couple new armor pieces for Link to collect, and one such set is the Phantom Ganon armor found in the Faron region. Once you accept the quest Ex Treasure: Dark Armor, you'll be on your way to finding this new equipment.

As usual, accept the quest in the menu and head towards the marker, which is in Deya Village Ruins near Dueling Peaks. Here you'll find a Rumor Mill book detailing the locations of not only the Dark Armor set but also other DLC equipment pieces that are a part of The Champions' Ballad. As for the Dark Armor (which is the Phantom Ganon set), you get the following clues for three pieces of equipment:

  • At the highest of the three waterfalls north of Lake Floria
  • At the bridge between small waterfalls over Floria River
  • At the broken stone bird of Ebara Forest

All these locations are in the Faron region of the game. So let's get started.

At the highest of the three waterfalls north of Lake Floria - Phantom Ganon Skull location

The clue here isn't very helpful, as there are a lot of waterfalls north of Lake Floria and it's not clear what is meant by 'highest'. In any case, what you want to do is warp to Shoda Sah Shrine and make your way to Corta Lake. Remember, you can use the Zora Armor to easily swim up waterfalls to get yourself some height, if needed.

Once at Corta Lake, go to the waterfall on the south side of it and fall to the bottom/base of the falls. You'll find the treasure chest underwater here. Use Magnesis to pull it up and grab your Phantom Ganon Skull.

At the bridge between small waterfalls over Floria River - Phantom Ganon Armor location

This one is easy. Warp to Faron Tower and glide westward towards Sarjon Bridge. The chest is under the bridge in the water. Once again use Magnesis to pull it up and claim your Phantom Ganon Armor.

At the broken stone bird of Ebara Forest - Phantom Ganon Greaves location

For the Phantom Ganon Greaves, you want to head to Ebara Forest near Lake Floria (you can warp to Shoda Sah Shrine and use the waterfalls again to give yourself some height.) Head to the region located on the map below and you'll find a couple of statues scattered among the trees.

Activate Magnesis and look for a chest hidden among the dirt. If you are in the area located in the above map, it shouldn't take too long to find. Open up the chest and claim you Phantom Ganon Greave.

The complete Phantom Ganon set improves your stealth as well as improves damage done with Bone weapons. It also looks pretty cool.
