Terminal 2
Use the side door to go up and locate the water wheel and a guardian. Kill him and find the two water wheels. One is turning while the other is still.

The terminal is right in front of you but the cog is filled with water.

Wait for it to be at the bottom of the cog and use your ability to freeze the source of the water solid. The level will drop and you can get the terminal.

Terminal 3
Reach the other side of the room and go up the stairs. There is a portal near the Ganon corruption where the enemies come from. Locate the eyeball and shoot it.

Keep moving up the stairs until you reach a locked gate, a water wheel. Use your map to adjust the position of the trunk.

Make the orange ball fall into the blue slot to open the door. Freeze the ball into the slot and direct the trunk so the door faces you. Go in the door and activate the terminal.

Terminal 4
You should be where you killed the first guardian, go through the passageway to reach the trunk. Raise the trunk and stay on the end, get enough height before you jump and glide to reach the Ruta’s body.

Locate the hole atop of the body and drop down, find the corruption eye and shoot it. Get your hands on the mechanism using the Megnesis power and turn it clockwise. This will give you access to a hole.

Terminal 5
Go to the area where you walked onto the Trunk. Position the trunk to pour water into Ruta. Stand near the doorway and make the trunk descend, jump and paraglide to the end of the trunk. Land where the water is coming from.

Curl the trunk back up and remain on the right side of it. The final terminal is on a side of Vah Ruta’s trunk. Keep in mind that it will only be visible when raised.
