Zelda Breath of the Wild guide: How to find all of the new armor and masks in ‘The Master Trials’ DLC (update)

Nine new pieces of armor in DLC pack 1

The Master Trials, the first expansion to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, brings two new full set outfits and three masks. Eight of these pieces — the two sets and two of the masks — are based on previous Zelda titles. The last mask is unique to Breath of the Wild. Each of them has an ability bonus that comes along with the new look. In this guide, we’ll show you how and where to find them all — Tingle's fairy clothes, the Phantom set, Midna's helmet, Majora's mask and the Korok mask.

Tingle set: EX Treasure: Fairy Clothes side quest

The Master Trials DLC brings Tingle’s Fairy Clothes and its associated “EX Treasure: Fairy Clothes” side quest into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Tingle’s Fairy clothes are the “green garments of a man who wished to be a fairy hidden in the ruins of Hyrule Field,” according to the item’s description. In this guide, we’ll show you how to find Tingle’s Fairy Clothes.

EX Treasure: Fairy Clothes side quest

When you boot up Breath of the Wild after installing The Master Trials DLC, you’ll receive the “EX Treasure: Fairy Clothes” side quest. Its text says:

The royal family of Hyrule collected historically significant outfits, but they were stolen by a bandit named Misko. Among the items stolen were a fairy’s green garments.

There's a journal that places the location of this treasure somewhere in the Outpost Ruins…

Travel to the Great Plateau tower, the closest warp point to the journal.

How to find the Fairy Clothes: The Great Plateau tower

Travel to the Great Plateau tower, the first tower you ascended in Breath of the Wild. At the top, face east toward the Dueling Peaks and paraglide off. Your destination is the southernmost part of the Outpost Ruins. (You can see the exact location and the path you’ll need to travel in the gallery above.)

In the Outpost Ruins, look for a book — Misko’s EX Journal — on a table against a wall. Read the book, which says (in part):

The green garments of the man who wished to be a fairy are hidden in the ruins of Hyrule Field.

Reading further into Misko’s EX journal will reveal the three locations of each piece of the Fairy Clothes set.

Find these pieces at the ruins where trade flourished...

at the ruins where sinners were imprisoned...

and at the village ruins next to the farmland where many people once gathered.

Hyrule Field is a large area filled with ruins. To help find the Fairy Clothes fast, we’ll break down each location for you.

How to find Tingle’s Hood: Exchange Ruins

Just south of Central Tower is Exchange Ruins, “the ruins where trade flourished.” If you haven’t discovered it yet, drag your map cursor straight down from Central Tower until you see some ruins just a bit northeast of Aquame Bridge. Your path from the tower to the ruins will be littered with Guardians, so be careful.

Once inside the ruins, navigate to the south area between the two small bodies of water in the map above. You’ll see a treasure chest (marked with an “EX”) in the ground in a little sunken in landing. Yank it out with magnesis. Inside will be Tingle’s Hood.

How to find Tingle’s Shirt: Castle Town Prison

Just west of Hyrule Castle is a small island where Castle Town Prison is, “the ruins where sinners were imprisoned.” On the east side of the island near the road are the ruins you’re looking for. You’ll know you’re there when you see a Guardian roaming around exactly where the treasure is.

You’ll find the treasure chest near some destroyed buildings. Sometimes, you’ll find some white birds standing directly around the chest. You can easily spot it with magnesis, which you’ll need to pull it from the ground. Inside the chest is Tingle’s Shirt.

How to find Tingle’s Tights: Mabe Village Ruins

The final piece of the Fairy Clothes, Tingle’s Tights, are in the Mabe Village Ruins, “the village ruins next to the farmland where many people once gathered.” This one isn’t as obvious to find as the others. To find it, look east of Central Tower. From there, you’ll see two roads that should meet, but are broken. That’s the Ranch Ruins. Directly to the northwest of it is the Mabe Village Ruins. Head there.

Once there, head to the small body of water in the village. There you’ll see a dead Guardian. Below it, you’ll see a treasure chest when you use magnesis. Pull the chest out, and it’ll flip over the Guardian and you’ll finally have Tingle’s Tights.

Once you have the tights, you’ll complete the “EX Treasure: Fairy Clothes” side quest.

When you wear the entire Tingle set of clothes, you get a Night Speed Up bonus.

Phantom set: EX Treasure: Phantasma’ side quest

The “EX Treasure: Phantasma” side quest that The Master Trials DLC adds to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will let you find the Phantom armor from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

The Phantom armor set will boost your attack, but you can’t upgrade it at a Great Fairy fountain or dye it at the Kochi Dye Shop in Hateno Village.

Collecting this set will take a bit of running around Hyrule Field, and will bring you up against some super tough enemies. We’ll help you prepare in the sections below.

Misko’s EX Journal: Outpost Ruins

The “EX Treasure: Twilight Relic” side quest for the helmet appears automatically the first time you start the game with the DLC installed. Its text reads:

The royal family of Hyrule collected historically significant outfits, but they were stolen by a bandit named Misko. Anong the items stolen was some phantasmal armor.

There’s a journal that places the locations of the treasure somewhere in the Outpost Ruins…

Approaching the Outpost Ruins from the southwest.
The location of Misko’s EX Journal in the Outpost Ruins.

Head to Ja Baij shrine on the eastern edge of the Great Plateau. Turn directly northeast and paraglide down off the plateau. Continue northeast until you see the Outpost Ruins. Just on the other side of the first wall you see, you’ll find Misko’s EX Journal.

Reading Misko’s EX Journal will update your adventure log for all eight of the stolen relics — Majora’s Mask, the Tingle set, Midna’s and the Phantom set. For the phantasmal armor, Misko wrote:

Armor worn by fierce phantoms, feared even by heroes, is hidden in the ruins of Hyrule Field. Find these pieces at a battleground where brave souls tested their skill… at ceremonial ground where royal guards are honored… and at the ruins where the soldiers of Hyrule gathered.

How to find the Phantom Helmet: Coliseum Ruins

The monster-filled coliseum.

The first location mentioned by Misko, “a battleground where brave souls tested their skill,” is the Coliseum Ruins. If you haven’t been here before, it’s just east of the Outskirt Stable and just north of the Great Plateau.

There’s no quick way to get here — you’ll have to do some walking wherever you start. The most direct path is from Kaam Ya’tak shrine where you can find the road that leads straight into the ruins.

Lynels are no joke.

Before you go charging into the coliseum, a warning: There’s a lynel in here. There’s no point in the game where fighting a lynel is easy, so be prepared. If you’re going to take it on, make sure you have plenty of healing meals and elixirs and at least one really good weapon. If you’re going to try to avoid it or run in and out without dying, we wish you luck. Let us know how (or if) that worked out for you.

The lynel mask will make lynels think you’re a tiny, weird-looking lynel and they won’t attack you right away.

As reader rooislangwtf points out in the comments, if equip the lynel mask from Kilton’s shop, you you can trick the lynel into not attacking you. If you don’t press your luck for too long, the mask will fool it and it won’t attack.

Use magnesis to highlight the EX treasure chest.
The Phantom Helmet stats and description.

The treasure chest containing the Phantom helmet is buried in the ground against the wall to the northeast — it’s to the right when you walk in.

How to find the Phantom Greaves: Hyrule Garrison Ruins

Hyrule Garrison Ruins location

For the next piece in the set, head to the Central Tower. Turn to the southeast and paraglide down into the Hyrule Garrison Ruins.

Guardian unaware that it’s about to get shot in the eye.

There are a couple guardians here that you’ll have to deal with or avoid. Head to the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab to pick up some ancient arrows before you take them on. An ancient arrow will drop a guardian with a single shot to the eye. If you’re careful (or lucky) you might be able to avoid them altogether.

Use magnesis again to pull up the EX treasure chest.
Phantom Greaves stats and description.

Your goal is a little further to the southeast of the intersection. Look for a broken-down guardian next to a low wall.

How to find the Phantom Armor: Sacred Ground Ruins

Sacred Ground Ruins location — there’s also a Captured Memory right here.

The final piece of the Phantom set is waiting for you at the Sacred Ground Ruins. You may have been here before while collecting Captured Memories. Just like getting to the coliseum, you’re going to have to do a lot of walking to get there.

You can start at Katah Chuki shrine and follow the roads to the east, but it’s going to take you through a bunch more guardians. If you’ve got the ancient arrows or like the challenge, go for it.

If you’d rather sneak in the safer way, start walking north-northeast from where you picked up the Phantom Greaves — directly northeast from the Central Tower. You’ll walk onto the Sacred Ground Ruins from the opposite direction. There won’t be any roads to follow, but you’re not going to run into all those guardians.

Use magnesis to pull the EX treasure chest of out the water.
Phantom Armor stats and description.

In the center of the Sacred Ground Ruins, activate your magnesis and look to the southeast. The EX treasure chest is in the water right in front of you. Get the chest up onto the stone with you and open it for the Phantom Armor.

Midna’s helmet: EX Treasure: Twilight Relic’ side quest

The “EX Treasure: Twilight Relic” side quest that The Master Trials DLC adds to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will let you find Midna’s Helmet from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Wearing it will boost your resistance to Guardians and, frankly, it looks pretty darn cool.

Misko’s EX Journal: Outpost Ruins

The “EX Treasure: Twilight Relic” side quest for the helmet appears automatically the first time you start the game with the DLC installed. Its text reads:

The royal family of Hyrule collected historically significant outfits, but they were stolen by a bandit named Misko. One of the items stolen was a helmet of twilight…

There’s a journal that places the location of this treasure somewhere in the Outpost Ruins…

Approaching the Outpost Ruins from the southwest.

Head to Ja Baij shrine on the eastern edge of the Great Plateau. Turn directly northeast and paraglide down off the plateau. Continue northeast until you see the Outpost Ruins. Just on the other side of the first wall you see, you’ll find Misko’s EX Journal.

Reading Misko’s EX Journal will update your adventure log for all eight of the stolen relics — Majora’s Mask, the Tingle set, Midna’s Helmet and the Phantom set. For the Twilight Relic, Misko wrote:

The princess of twilight, whose stories are handed down alongside those of the Hero of Twilight…

Her helmet can be found at the temple ruins soaked in the waters of Regencia River.

How to find Midna’s Helmet: Sage Temple Ruins

Paragliding down to the Sage Temple Ruins from Jeddo Bridge.

The soaked ruins he’s talking about are north-northwest of the Outpost Ruins. If you check your map, you’ll find the Regencia River to the northwest. Follow it north until it meets the Tamio River, just east of the Jeddo Bridge. The Sage Temple Ruins that you’re looking for are on the southeast corner of this intersection.

The easiest way to get here is to hop over to Sheem Dagoze shrine. Head east and onto the Jeddo Bridge. About halfway across, you can turn left and jump off (or you can keep running and turn east after the bridge). Paraglide down along the river and turn a little to the right as you come out of the canyon. You should land right on the edge of the Sage Temple Ruins.

Look for two trees. Between them and a little in front of them, there’s a pile of rubble with a rusty shield and a rusty claymore embedded in it. Stand on the north side of this pile of rubble and fire up your magnesis. You’ll notice a treasure chest buried under the rubble.

Midna’s Helmet stats and description.

Pull out the chest and open it to claim Midna’s Helmet.

Majora’s mask: EX Treasure: Ancient Mask side quest

The Master Trials DLC brings Majora’s Mask and its associated “EX Treasure: Ancient Mask” side quest into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Majora’s Mask is “an eerie mask passed down from ancient times. Wearing it makes it harder for certain enemies to spot you,” according to the item’s description. In this guide, we’ll show you how to find Majora’s Mask.

EX Treasure: Ancient Mask side quest

When you boot up Breath of the Wild after installing The Master Trials DLC, you’ll receive the “EX Treasure: Ancient Mask” side quest. Its text says:

The royal family of Hyrule collected historically significant outfits, but they were stolen by a bandit named Misko. On of the items stolen was an ancient mask.

There's a journal that places the location of this treasure somewhere in the Outpost Ruins…

Travel to the Great Plateau tower, the closest warp point to the journal.

How to find Majora’s Mask: The Great Plateau tower

Travel to the Great Plateau tower, the first tower you ascended in Breath of the Wild. At the top, face east toward the Dueling Peaks and paraglide off. Your destination is the southernmost part of the Outpost Ruins. (You can see the exact location and the path you’ll need to travel in the gallery above.)

In the Outpost Ruins, look for a book — Misko’s EX Journal — on a table against a wall. Read the book, which says (in part):

The ancient mask lies at the ruins where soldiers gathered. From there, the waters of Lake Kolomo are visible.

Reading Misko’s EX journal will update your adventure log for all eight of the stolen relics — Majora’s Mask, the Tingle set, Midna’s Helmet and the Phantom set.

You’ll find a new waypoint in the “EX Treasure: Ancient Mask” side quest, which adds:

Misko's EX Journal gives the location of the ancient mask…but where could it be talking about?

The answer: On the south shore of Lake Kolomo, you’ll find Kolomo Garrison Ruins, northwest through the Forest of Time from your location at the Outpost Ruins. (Check out the image below to see the path you need to take.)

How to find Majora’s Mask: Kolomo Garrison Ruins

Where to find Majora’s Mask in Breath of the Wild

The treasure chest (marked with an “EX”) containing Majora’s Mask is buried in the ground around the corner from the westernmost doorway. Use magnesis to dislodge it. Opening it will complete the “EX Treasure: Ancient Mask” side quest.

Korok Mask: EX Strange Mask Rumors side quest

The Korok Mask is a piece of new armor included in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Master Trials DLC in the “EX Strange Mask Rumors” side quest. When worn, this mask acts like your sheiklah slate does for shrines, but for koroks. Which is kind of amazing, frankly, because there’s a lot (900) of them, and this mask makes them easier to find.

How to find the Korok Mask in the Lost Woods

To quickest to get to the Lost Woods is from Woodland Tower. Of course, once you get to the top of Woodland Tower, you realize that there is a giant stone skull obscuring the top of the tower, making it impossible to glide into the woods from there.

To get there, go on the beaten path toward the woods until you reach this cliff, and then head to the Lost Woods in the distance.

Light a torch, then head west and then north from here

Enter the Lost Woods as you normally would, and follow the flames until you see two flames on pillars next to each other. Pick up the torch sitting next to one of the pillars, and light it.

Stand still and watch how the wind blows the flame on your torch. That will tell you which direction to go. If you want to make it even easier, just watch the video above. Either way, you need to head west and then north.

The Korok Mask treasure chest in the Lost Woods

As with all of the DLC items we’ve seen thus far, the Korok Mask is in a treasure chest marked with an “EX.” This one just happens to be hiding inside of a grotesque tree.

Also, if this is your first time here, be sure to check out our guide to navigating Breath of the Wild’s Lost Woods.

How to use the Korok Mask

Equip it, and just as the description says, it’ll begin to shake when you’re near a korok. The pinwheel will also rotate, and the mask will give off (harmless, but pretty) sparks. You can see what it looks like in the video above.
