How To Complete Jochi-Ihiga Shrine In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Haggle with the haggler to acquire the crystal for Jochi-ihiga shrine.

Jochi-ihiga in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a crystal shrine with a unique quest. A petty thief has stolen the shrine’s life crystal, and the only way to get it back is by shelling out money.

As Jochi-ihiga is a blessing shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, it offers no combat challenges. However, purchasing the rock and delivering it to the shrine’s doorstep is a moderately difficult puzzle.

You can complete this puzzle quickly with a good knowledge of Ultrahand and the ability to craft transport vessels like a boat. Bonus points if you have discovered the ability to craft items from memory.
