With The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom finally out, everyone is finally coming to terms with just how absolutely massive this game really is. We’ve been hard at working preparing a thorough IGN Tears of the Kingdom Walkthrough and Strategy Guide based on hundreds of hours of gameplay, which includes the important shrines puzzle guides.
Tears of the Kingdom has a whopping 152 shrines hidden across its massive map, and we’ve not only catalogued all of them, but we’ve got a handy rundown right here of the most sought-after shrines with their locations and a brief overview of the shrine solutions.
Mayachin Shrine (A Fixed Device) is in Central Hyrule, and is easy to spot just north of the Hyrule Field Skyview Tower in the Exchange Ruins. You can walk right up to it.
Once there, you’ll need to create a mechanism to hit a ball with a baseball bat and into a target, using ground spikes, the rotating switch on the ground, Ultrahand, and careful timing. This can take several tries, and an even more complex setup is needed to get the treasure chest.
- Check out our guide to Mayachin Shrine for the full walkthrough for complete details, or watch the shrine video walkthrough below.
Mayaumekis Shrine (Downward Force) is in the Hebra region, up in the sky. You’ll find it naturally as you progress through the Tulin of Rito Village questline.
Once inside, hit a switch with an arrow through the bars. Bounce off the ships’ sails to cross the gap until you reach a door blocked with bars. Take out your bow midair to slow time and shoot the switch through the bars, opening the final door.
- Our guide to Mayaumekis Shrine has even more details on how to solve this puzzle.
Susuyai Shrine (A Spinning Device) is in Central Hyrule, southwest of Lookout Landing and the lookout landing Skyview Tower. You can walk right up to it.
Once inside, dodge the cars, then grab one on your way out with Ultrahand and use it to drive up the rotating floor. Then use the car to run into the device on the other side and keep the door open for you while you head through. In the final room, you can use Ultrahand to build a platform that will allow you to cross the gap using the hanging platform and a wheel attached to the front of the device, touching the track. Activate it to move forward and complete the Shrine.

Orochium Shrine (Courage to Fall) is hiding out in the icy Hebra Mountains north of the Snowfield Stable.
Inside is a bit of a maze, but your goal is to get a ball from the center of the maze into the hole at the start. Circle around to the left and use Ascend to get inside, work your way around the maze, then open the double doors with Ultrahand and let yourself get hit by a lazer to fall through the trapdoor. Avoid this final set of lazers and Ascend through the ceiling to collect a key, and Ascend again to get the ball. You’ll then take the ball up the elevators at the back of the maze, attach it to a glider with Ultrahand, and sail down to slot it into the target.

Ishodag Shrine (A Windy Device) is located in Central Hyrule, atop a rocky hill west of Hyrule Castle Town Ruins. Ascend to the Shrine through a stone overhang on the north side of the hill. Inside, you’ll be using carefully-placed fans first to float upward, then to cross a body of water, and finally to propel an elevator that lets you ascend to the final platform.
- All the details are in our full Ishodag Shrine walkthrough. You can also watch the shrine video walkthrough below.
Ren-iz Shrine (Jump the Gaps) is also based in Central Hyrule, in a sub-zone called Crenel Hills. It’s hidden inside a massive carved out tree.
Once you’re inside, use Ultrahand to adjust the metal plate to drop the ball into the basket – you may need to give it a few attempts. The second puzzle involves both a long metal plate and a short square one – you can prop the long plate up on the switch and use the short one at an angle to make a ramp, and let the ball fly.
- We have an even more detailed walkthrough to Ren-iz Shrine here.
Soryotanog Shrine (Buried Light) is located in the Gerudo Desert. You can get there by flying in from the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower or from a nearby Sky Island. Or you can do things the hard way and climb the walls of Gerudo Town, fending off enemies as you go.
Once inside, use the fans to dig up the necessary items for completion – first a small key, then a reflector and a hidden passage, then a gear, and finally a beam of light and a reflector.
- Our full guide to Soryotanog Shrine has all the details. Shrine walkthrough video coming soon.
Morok Shrine (A Bouncy Device) is waiting on a low-flying Sky Island in the Lanaryu Region, which makes it a bit tough to access. You can climb to it via its dangling root system, or use Recall on a fallen chunk of Sky Island to rise high enough to access it.
Once inside, you’ll be getting the hang of using spring contraptions first to move yourself around the shrine, and then to move a ball into a target by launching it off the springs.
- Our full guide to Morok Shrine is right here. Or, you can check out the walkthrough video for the shrine below.
If you’re tired of Shrine exploration, there’s plenty more to do, and we have it all catalogued in our full guides to Tears of the Kingdom.
