How To Complete Otak Shrine In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Use the traps inside Otak Shrine to defeat your enemies and earn the shrine's blessing.

Otak Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one of the hidden cave shrines. It requires you to find additional resources and fight multiple enemies. The Trial inside the Shrine requires you to kill 6 Constructs, and only after killing them will you be able to claim the Light of Blessing.

You will have to find Otak Shrine first in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. As mentioned above, it is hidden in the cave, and enormous ice crystals block the cave. The guide below will tell you how to find and complete this shrine.

Otak Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Otak Shrine is in the northwest corner of Hyrule’s map and is hidden inside Icefall Foothills Cave. The entrance of the cave is at (-4428, 3785, 0224).

The entrance of the cave is blocked with large ice blocks. We recommend that you attach a Ruby to any shield and equip it. Move close to the ice blocks with the Ruby shield, and they will start melting automatically.

You can also create fire weapons by fusing fire-based enemy parts with them. Fire Lizalfos blade works wonders in this area.

1. Melt some ice blocks inside the cave to free blue Bokoblins. Kill them to loot weapons and their body parts.

2. Turn left to find an entrance blocked with more ice blocks. Melt it however, you deem necessary.

3. Hit the ice on the floor with a fire arrow (Arrow + Fire Fruit) to create a hole.

4. Drop through the hole to find three enemies. One silver Bokoblin and two blue Bokoblins. These are very tough enemies to handle but yield beneficial items.

5. Once these enemies are defeated, look at the right wall to locate another block of ice.

6. Hit the ice with fire arrows to create an opening to the shrine. Enter the opening to locate Otak shrine at (-4392, 3714, 0212).
