***This article lists the locations of all the newly added armor, helmet and masks in Breath of the Wild. Be warned as it may contain spoilers.***
The first DLC pack for Breath of the Wild has launched today (June 30th) on Wii U and Nintendo Switch. There’s a ton of content to cover, with the new Trial of the Sword, Hero’s Path Mode & Master Mode. While we plan to cover these really soon, we’re going to cover the locations of all the newly added armor, helmet & masks you can find in Breath of the Wild.
First off, make sure you have the latest version of the game is downloaded. You’ll get a notification on your console if you’re connected to the internet. Once the download is finished, you’ll be ready to go. The size of DLC Pack 1 on Switch is 456 MB while the size on Wii U is about 3.7 GB.
Once your download is finished, you’ll receive a prompt telling you about all the newly added features; Master Mode, Hero’s Path Mode, Trial of the Sword, etc. One of the pop-ups titled “Misko’s Treasure” will tell you about eight hidden treasures chests in Hyrule. Your first clue is to find a journal in the Outpost Ruins.
“Eight items have been added, including Majora’s Mask and other relics holding the legacy of The Legend of Zelda series. There is apparently a journal at Outpost Ruins written by the fiend who stole these items– the great bandit Misko!”
Now it’s time to get down to business: as our lead tells us, we must head to the Outpost Ruins and find clues to the “treasure”. Misko’s journal entries give four cryptic scriptures of the locations. As soon as you finish reading the entire journal, you will be assigned brand new “EX” side quests. Check your menu selection to find the details. One thing to remember about finding the treasure is that they’re all inside black colored “EX” treasure chests. Unlike the Expansion Pack bonus chests, the EX Treasure chests are buried in the ground or hidden underneath an object. A helpful tip is to use Magnesis since you’ll be using it regularly for this quest.
Now the hunt truly begins! If you wish to save time from deciphering Misko’s clues, here is where you can find all goodies:
Tingle’s Hood: Inside a chest, buried, “at the ruins where trade flourished” – the Exchange Ruins.
Tingle’s Shirt: Inside a chest, buried, “at the ruins where sinners were imprisoned” – the Castle Town Prison. [Note: Guardian nearby]
Tingle’s Tights: Inside a chest, underneath a dead Guardian, “at the village ruins next to the farmland [Ranch Ruins] where many people once gathered” – Mabe Village Ruins.
Majora’s Mask (or “Ancient Mask”)
“The ancient mask lies at the ruins where soldiers gathered*. From there, the waters of Lake Kolomo are visible.” You’ll find this chest buried in the ground around the ruins, hugging a wall, located just above Kolomo Lake in the Kolomo Garrison Ruins.
*Not to be confused with the location of the Phantom Greaves.
Midna’s Helmet (or “Twilight Relic”)
“The princess of twilight, whose stories are handed alongside those of the Hero of Twilight… Her helmet can be found at the temple ruins soaked in the waters of Regencia River.” The chest is found in the water. Search and collect with Magnesis in the Sage Temple Ruins.
Phantom Helmet — Inside a chest, buried next to the wall, “at the battleground where brave souls tested their skill”. – Coliseum Ruins
Phantom Armor — Inside a chest, underwater, “at ceremonial grounds where royal guards are honored”. – Sacred Ground Ruins
Phantom Greaves — Inside a chest, near dead Guardian, “at the ruins where the soldiers of Hyrule gathered”.** – Hyrule Garrison Ruins
**Not to be confused with the location of Majora’s Mask.
EX Strange Mask Rumors
While the Korok mask isn’t part of Misko’s treasure; you’ll find clues of its whereabouts at the Woodland Stable. Go inside and read a journal entry titled “Super Rumor Mill EX: Volume 1“. It tells you that the Korok Mask can be found in a hollow tree of the Lost Woods.
When inside the forest, be cautious of the mist that would attempt to surround you. Get out of it and look for a different path. It won’t prevent you from getting the mask otherwise, you just need to find the correct pathway. Again, a good tip to find the mask is to have Magnesis on when traversing through the forest. The chest containing the Korok Mask will be inside the mouth of a hollow tree. Just use Magnesis, take it out of the tree’s mouth, and you got yourself the Korok Mask! In addition, it even resembles Makar from The Wind Waker.
EX Teleportation Rumors!
Now to search for the Travel Medallion. Head to the South Akkala Stable. Inside, you’ll find a journal entry titled Super Rumor Mill V2. It tells you the rumor about a mysterious medallion that can transport you to wherever you placed it. The journal then goes into stating the medallion can be found beneath a labyrinth in northeast Akkala.
Obviously, this means the medallion is located under Lomei Labyrinth Island; one of the three mazes spread across Hyrule. You can get there by traveling from the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab or Tu Ka’loh Shrine. If you’ve already gained access to that shrine, your travel will be a lot quicker. Literally.
Once you arrive at the shrine, simply go down the hole where the wind is blowing out of. But be warned, there are Guardians plagued here. Thankfully you only have to worry about four of them still active. If you haven’t visited this place before, be sure to grab the treasure of the Diamond Circlet. That may, in fact, activate the Guardians, though…
There’s another EX Chest by the wall from where you came in from. Open it and you’ll receive the Travel Medallion.
“This mysterious tool was made using forgotten ancient technology. Place it by opening your pouch and registering your current location as a travel gate.“
That about does it for all the newest DLC you can find through hints and treasure chests! We will be covering more on the Trial of the Sword and many others as we continue to learn more from the latest downloadable content. Until then, enjoy your new gear in Breath of the Wild!
