Kyononis Shrine Walkthrough

The trial of Kyononis Shrine is known as Combat Training. Its main purpose is to teach players how to activate bullet time, also known as Flurry Rush, and parry incoming attacks.

Veterans of the series will feel at home with this trial; it is an amazing opportunity for newcomers to learn the basic combat mechanisms of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

1. Upon entering the shrine, you will come face to face with a construct soldier.

2. The game will tell you the exact controls to activate Flurry Rush. Press ZL to target the enemy and press the left analog stick to either left or right to strafe around the enemy.

3. When the enemy swings its weapon, press X to jump. If you time it correctly, time will slow down, and the game will ask you to press Y rapidly to deliver a Flurry of attacks upon the enemy.


Different enemies have different attack animations. While the method remains the same, you must learn their patterns to activate Flurry Rush successfully each time.

4. This is the only way to defeat the Construct Soldier in Kyononis Shrine of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

5. The next method to activate Flurry Rush is by backflip, which is even easier. Target lock the enemy with ZL and press down on your analog stick to backpedal. When the enemy’s strike is about to connect, press X to jump backward.

6. If timed correctly, Flurry Rush will activate, allowing you to defeat the enemy.

7. The next trial is about perfect guard or parry. Press ZL to take out your shield and face the enemy. Once the enemy’s strike is about to hit you, press A to parry.

8. If done perfectly, it will stagger the enemy, allowing you to deliver a critical hit.

9. The next trial concerns charged attacks. Take out your weapon, press and hold Y to charge it, and release the Y button to unleash a charged attack on the enemy, also known as a Spinning Attack.

10. At this point, the door to the altar room will open. Enter the altar room and collect the Zonaite Sword from the treasure chest. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to earn a light of Blessing.
