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

Learn to strike your enemies from the shadows in Sinatanika Shrine.

Sinatanika Shrine is about learning basic game mechanics. While sneaking seems like a waste of time, Sneakstrike delivers massive damage to the enemies and catches them unprepared for the assault. As this shrine is about learning something fundamental, you won’t need any specific gear items to attempt it. However, failing Sinatanika Shrine at any time in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will make you reattempt it from the start.

Sinatanika Shrine Walkthrough

Sinatanika Shrine is all about teaching you a basic gameplay mechanic, Sneakstrike. This can be achieved by pressing the right analog stick to enter the crouching state and then moving the left analog stick slowly to sneak around without making a sound.

The trial of this shrine is to make two sneak attacks on a patrolling construct without alerting it.

1. As soon as you enter the Sinatanika Shrine, the game will teach you how to enter sneak mode. Turn right and go around the arena to reach the back of the soldier construct.

2. Enter sneak mode by pressing the right analog stick and approach the enemy from behind slowly.

3. Once you are in range, a prompt will appear to deliver a Sneakstrike. Upon a successful strike, the trial’s first phase will be over.

4. The next part is a bit tricky but still easy. This time, the construct will be moving. Enter the area from the same position and follow the enemy.

5. Keep following the construct from behind until you are in a strike range. Once the prompt for Sneakstrike appears, perform it. This will kill the construct and open the door to the altar room.

6. Enter the altar room and collect Sneaky Elixir from the treasure chest. Interact with Rauru and Sonia statues to complete the trial and earn a Light of Blessing.
