Not all Tears of the Kingdom Shrine locations require Link to solve puzzles or fight the hordes of enemies to earn their blessings. Some shrines simply reward Link for his curiosity and his will to explore every nook and cranny. Maoikes Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, for example, falls in the latter category. Link only needs to find and enter this shrine to receive Rauru’s blessing.
