Ancient Shrines,[1] also known as Shrines of Trials,[2] are dungeon-like puzzles in Breath of the Wild.

Overview

There are 120 Ancient Shrines scattered throughout Hyrule. The Ancient Shrines appeared long before the events of Breath of the Wild, but began to glow after Link activated the Great Plateau Tower.[3] In order to enter an Ancient Shrine, Link must unlock the entrance by pressing his Sheikah Slate to a pedestal at a Shrine's entrance. Shrines that have not yet been unlocked glow an orange light, and glow orange and blue once their entrance has been opened. Upon completion, Ancient Shrines only glow blue.

The Shrines each contain a series of traps and obstacles to be overcome as part of a trial. At the end of every Shrine is a Monk, who are the creators of the trials inside.[4] The Monks will present Link a Spirit Orb for successfully reaching them. The first four Ancient Shrines also contain Runes which add functionalities to the Sheikah Slate, bestowing Link with new abilities. Each Shrine contains various amounts of Treasure Chests alongside the Spirit Orbs bestowed by the Monks. A Chest icon will appear next to the Shrine's name on the map once all Treasure has been collected.

After completing all 120 shrines, Link is instructed to head to the Goddess Statue in the Forgotten Temple where he will obtain the "Wild" Armor set.[5] [6]
