The trial presented by Oshozan-u Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is called Mallet Smash. The objective is to create mallets that strike the orange targets.

1. From the start of the shrine, turn right to pick up a wooden log and attach it to a metal block on the railing.

2. Pick up a rocket and attach it to the metal block with Ultrahand. Make sure to rotate the rocket so that it faces toward the orange target.

3. Hit the rocket to move the mallet forward, and hit the orange target to solve the first puzzle. This will open the room to the next area.

4. Pick up a wooden log from the right side and turn it vertically. Place it inside a hollow region to the left.

5. Climb the log to reach the treasure chest on the ledge. Open it to obtain a Zonaite Bow.

6. Drop down and pick up the small log. Rotate it vertically and attach it to the bottom of the gear.

7. Remove the large log near the treasure chest and rotate it horizontally. Attach it to the small log, as shown in the picture.


If you are having trouble, you can hit the orange target with bomb arrows to complete the trial immediately.

8. Pick up the rocket and rotate it away from the orange target. Attach it to where both logs are connected.

9. Hit the rocket to activate the structure and make it swing to hit the orange target.

10. This will open the altar room’s door. Enter the altar room and interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to finish the trial. You will earn the Light of Blessing as a reward.
