Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Maca’s Special Place Guide

Maca's Special Place is an unusal Shrine Quest in Tears of the Kingdom. It is one of the few quest that completes when you unlock the shrine.

Ninjis Shrine in the Korok Forest can only be found and activated by completing its associated shrine quest. Like a lot of other shrines, This shrine is hidden and is near impossible to access without completing the “Maca’s Special Place” shrine quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

This shrine quest is a bit unusual and requires you to listen carefully to Maca’s instructions. Just follow our guide to avoid getting lost in Korok Forest repeatedly and find Ninjis Shrine in practically no time.

Link Gliding Towards Ninjis Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom

In case you haven’t been to Bravery Island yet, either use Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower or Eldin Canyon Skyview Tower to propel Link into the sky and glide to reach it.

If you use the Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower, the Bravery Island will be towards your north. Once you land on the island, jump east from Bravery Island towards the location marked on the map. Make sure to equip the Glide Armor Set to have better control over Link’s movements in the air.

You will notice a shrine from the sky while diving down. Glide your way to Ninjis Shrine and activate it. This will mark the end of the “Maca’s Special Place” shrine quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
