How to solve Gatakis Shrine puzzle in Zelda: TotK
As the name suggests Ride the Winds, this Gatakis Shrine puzzle solution will depend upon your paraglider maneuvering abilities.
Upon your entrance inside the Gatakis Shrine, you’ll come out on a higher platform from where you can simply paraglide over to the next lower platform.
The next section will be for you right, this time your glide path will be restricted by a series of lasers. Hug the right side of the sections to safely make it through and then land on the platform on your left.
This next section will have a wind tunnel for you to go through. You must slowly descend your way down through the gap in the rotating piece, whilst gliding.
You shouldn’t just land yet but continue onward, smashing through the ice to continue to the next section. If you do for some reason lose momentum or lose stamina and have to land, then use arrows to clear through it.
There is another wind tunnel below this ice, you can use it to help your descent to the next lower section. You’ll find yourself in a large room with a Solider Construct sitting on a platform.
You can land on that platform and take it out before collecting the contents of the chest found on the very same platform. You’ll receive the Strong Construct Bow from the chest.
Now face the wind tunnel once more whilst on the ledge and look to your left. You’ll find two more platforms on different levels from each other. In the middle of both of them, you’ll also find an opening.
Now, you can choose to either land on both platforms and take out the Solider Constructs for drop reward chances. You can also avoid them and glide your way through the tunnel.
As you go through the tunnel you‘ll emerge to another room where you can land onto another platform.
Go and interact with the shrine to obtain the Light of Blessing to complete the Gatakis Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom.
