If you want Link to be one of the most powerful beings in Hyrule, then you may want to take the time and pick up the Phantom Armor set in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Not only does this armor set look incredible, sporting a black and purple color scheme, but it has tremendous stats as well. There are three pieces to the Phantom Armor set, including a helmet, chest piece, and greaves.
These three pieces are spread out across Hyrule, and you will need to accomplish different tasks to acquire each of them. Luckily, I have an entire guide dedicated to finding all three pieces to the Phantom Armor set in Tears of the Kingdom, which you can read below.
Getting the Phantom Armor set in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
We will go over where to find each of the pieces to the Phantom Armor set separately below.
Phantom Armor Helmet
Starting with the top, you can find the Phantom Helmet south of Faron Grasslands at the Puffer Beach Overhead Cave. The coordinates for this cave are 0296, -3849, 0042. Unfortunately, the cave does not have a simple entrance. To enter it, you need to head to the beach. You can look above you to see the cave entrance on the ceiling of the cliff. Getting up there requires you to use your Zonai Spring to launch yourself upwards.
Inside the cave, you will fight some enemies but you can keep going to eventually find a chest containing the Phantom Helmet.
Next up, we have the actual armor of the set. This is found in another cave that is filled to the brim with the deadly Gloom. Before you go into this cave, you want to ensure you have the Froggy Armor set equipped or plenty of Energizing Elixirs. You will need them to scale up several walls.
The armor is located in the Tamio River Downstream Cave at coordinates -2911, -0765, 0010, which can be accessed after using the Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower. Inside the cave, go to the left side between two green-lit rocks and then go to the ledge. Across the opening is a chest with the Phantom Armor, but you can’t easily get there. Jump off the ledge and paraglide to the other side. You will hit the underside of the wall, which is where your Froggy Armor set comes into play. You can also use Energizing Elixirs before jumping to ensure you don’t run out of Stamina while climbing.
After jumping, you can climb your way up to the opening in the wall and loot the Phantom Armor in the chest ahead.
Phantom Armor Greaves
Finally, there are the leggings. You can find these in the Gerudo Deseret. More specifically, you need to go to the East Barrens and go into the sinkhole located at the coordinates -2522, -3725, 0010. This will take you inside the Ancient Altar Ruins. Inside the cave, you can find the Phantom Greaves sitting in a chest directly ahead of you.
And there you have it, you now have the full Phantom Armor set in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
