Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Ralis Channel Crystal walkthrough
The objective of the Ralis Channel Crystal shrine quest in Zelda TotK is to bring the Green Crystal across the Ralis Channel to the Joniu shrine. There are a lot of construction materials available on the bank including wooden planks, fans, steering wheels and sailing clothes.
The easiest and fastest way to carry the Green Crystal across the Ralis Channel is to create a zonai powered boat. Place a plank in North-South position. Attach a fan on its edge facing South. Attach the crystal on the opposite side. Using Ultrahand attach a pole containing sailing cloth just behind the Green Crystal. And finally, place a steering wheel in the middle of the boat.
You can also create any other construct you want, as long as it is able to sail on the water while carrying the Green Crystal and Link. If you have created a boat construct in the past after unlocking the Autobuild ability, use it to instantly create the boat construct from memory by sacrificing a few zonaites.
