Riogok Shrine is southwest of Central Hyrule, west of the Forest of Spirits. This area has a lot of rain, so we recommend using Froggy Armor or launching into the air by Hyrule Field Skyview Tower.

Riogok Shrine Walkthrough

The trial of Riogok Shrine is called Force Transfer. The purpose of this puzzle is to use rods to connect various machines and transfer force between them. You will need all of Link’s abilities to solve the puzzles.

1. Pick up the rod from the ground and connect it to two gears with Ultrahand.

2. Hit the vertical orange switch to activate the gate on the right side.

3. As the gear on the right is moving, it will rotate the one on the left resulting in raising the locked door.

4. In the next room, pick up the second rod and attach it to the treasure chest on a ledge in the top-right corner.

5. Bring the treasure chest down and open it to obtain a Mighty Construct Bow.

6. Attach the rod to the broken lever to the right and pull it to open the gate.

7. Pick up another rod from inside the room and attach it to the first one to create a long pole.

8. Attach the pole to the smaller lift on top, present opposite to the broken lever.

9. Now, climb the first lift by using the Ascend ability.


You can always use a Rocket Shield to complete this puzzle without a hitch.

10. Grab the pole and then push it upward. It will drag the lift with it.

11. Climb the second lift with Ascend and then use Recall on it. The lift will go up near the ledge.

12. If you still can’t make the climb, use the pole to reach the altar room.

13. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to finish the trial and earn a Light of Blessing as a reward.
