Breath of the Wild Ta'Loh Naeg Shrine Walkthrough

Here's our full Zelda Breath of the Wild walkthrough, detailing how you can complete story and side quests, as well as conquering every Shrine in the game.

The Ta’Loh Naeg Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be a tough egg to crack, especially if you arrive unprepared. In this Zelda Breath of the Wild Ta’Loh Naeg Shrine guide, we'll be walking you through beating the Shrine as quickly and painlessly as possible for Link.

Breath of the Wild Ta'Loh Naeg's Walkthrough

Head here to do some fight training
  1. This trial is essentially a glorified combat tutorial, pitting Link against a three-legged mechanical enemy that will test your various skills. Before you start fighting you'll want to pick up the Eightfold Blade and Shield of the Mind's Eye in the chests found at the front of the room.
  2. This triped doesn't put up much of a challenge
  3. Your first task is to use side hop to avoid enemy attacks, using the opening to strike back at the triped. If you time the side hop directly you'll be able to hammer the Y button to perform a flurry of attacks. Next comes backflip training, then parrying with your shield, and finally charge attacks. Successfully complete each task and the training enemy will be defeated, leaving behind a 20 Damage-rated Guardian Sword.
  4. Finish the Trial to get a cool sword
  5. Head into the final area of the room and open the chest to find an Opal. Now walk up the stairs to compete the trial. That wasn't all that challenging but you probably now understand dodging a little more.

The area of Kakariko Village is also home to numerous shops, selling cool items of clothing, food stuffs, arrows, and more. There's also a cooking pot outside the food store, making it an ideal place to prepare some food before you head off. Here's a guide on cooking.
