EX Treasure: Dark Armor

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page will offer a walkthrough on the DLC side quest EX Treasure: Dark Armor. This set of three hidden treasures is apart of the second DLC, which is available by purchasing the Expansion Pass for Breath of the Wild.

How to Start EX Treasure: Dark Armor

To begin this quest, you’ll need to find clues to the whereabouts of the treasure chest. The clues are given to you by Misko’s Journal, found in Deya Village Ruins in Deya Lake. You can easily travel to it by fast travelling to Dueling Peaks Tower and heading southwest. Then, you’ll find the journal with the clues within the ruins of a house.

Once you’ve found the journal, you’ll receive the clue “The evil spirit’s armor set is hidden within Faron’s sea of trees. Find these pieces at the highest of three waterfalls north of Lake Floria…at the bridge between small waterfalls at Floria River…and at the broken stone bird of Ebara Forest”.

Phantom Ganon Skull (Dark Armor Helmet)

The Phantom Ganon Skull is found at the base of a waterfall north of Lake Floria. You’ll want to fast travel to Qukah Nata Shrine and then head northwest until you reach the waterfall that’s slightly south of Corta Lake marker on the map. Then, use Magnesis to locate the chest that’s under the waterfall and pull it up to land. Within, you’ll find the Phantom Ganon Skull which is the helmet of the Dark Armor set.
