How To Complete Gemimik Shrine In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Let there be fire with the help of water in Gemimik Shrine.

Gemimik Shrine relies heavily on your mastery of the Ultrahand ability in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Present in the marshes of Deep Akkala, this shrine offers a multi-step puzzle that can be solved in multiple ways.

Although Gemimik Shrine lacks combat challenges, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom compensates by giving the players a shockingly fiery puzzle. As with most puzzle shrines, there are no prerequisites to attempting this shrine.

Gemimik Shrine Walkthrough

Upon entering the Gemimik Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you will be presented with the Turbine Power trial. The purpose of this trial is to complete the turbine and its circuit.

1. Find the blades of the fan lying on the ground and connect them to the turbine head by using Ultrahand.

2. Use Ultrahand to pick up the metal plate from the floor and complete the circuit. Place it so that one end touches the bright electric node and the other end touches the dead electric node.

3. This will activate the turbine and the blase will start spinning. Use the air draft created by the fan to go upward and glide backward to find a treasure chest. Open it to obtain a Mighty Zonaite Shield.

4. Glide back to the air current and, this time, go to the platform in the right corner of the room (opposite the treasure chest).

5. Pick up the flaming dragon head zonai device with Ultrahand and drop it down. You will need it to ignite the candles around the turbine.

6. Attach the flaming dragon head to the turbine blades. This will allow you to ignite the candles in rapid succession. If you try to do it manually, the candles will be extinguished before you can ignite them all.

7. This will open the altar door in the room. Enter the room and interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to get a Light of Blessing as a reward for cunning and intelligence.
