|Quest Reward(s)||Mipha's Grace|
Many years ago, Ruta was piloted by Mipha, the Zora Champion. After Calamity Ganon took control of the machine, it created a torrential downpour in the Lanayru Great Spring. If Link approaches it before completing the necessary precursors, he will be thrown backwards by the beast's barrier.
Entrance to the Divine Beast
Before Link can board Ruta, he must team up with Sidon to disable the Beast. Link must disable the switches on the Ruta's sides by swimming up waterfalls and shooting them with Shock Arrows. Each time Link disables a switch, Ruta sends an increasingly savage volley of ice blocks and spheres that Link must shatter with the Cryonis Rune. Once he has deactivated all the switches, he can enter the Beast.
Once inside, Link can control the elephant's trunk and move it between various positions. It constantly spews water, allowing Link to position the stream of water by extension. To appease Ruta, Link must activate each of the Terminals located throughout the Beast with his Sheikah Slate. After Link activates them all, he can proceed to fight Waterblight Ganon.
If Link is successful in defeating Waterblight Ganon, he is visited by Mipha's spirit and receives Mipha's Grace, a magical power similar to that of a Fairy. Then, the rain in the Lanayru Great Spring will finally stop. Link is also rewarded by the Zora King with Mipha's Lightscale Trident. Mipha's spirit and Ruta climb atop a cliff and send a red beam towards Hyrule Castle to aid Link in his fight against Calamity Ganon.
