The Kay Noh Shrine,[name reference missing] designated by the Trial name Power of Electricity,[name reference missing] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

The Kay Noh Shrine is located on small cliff right next to the Gerudo Canyon Stable in Gerudo Highlands.

Themes and Navigation

When Link enters the Shrine, the Monk, Kay Noh, can be heard presenting the trial.[1] The Shrine begins with a puzzle where Link must move an electrically charged ball onto a circular slot that will charge and open the door to the way forward. In the next room, he finds a similar situation, but this time the ball is chained to the ceiling out of reach. Link can shoot an Arrow or perform a Jump Attack to cut the chain and release the ball so that he may carry it back to the uncharged slot. Placing the ball in the slot will turn on the conveyor belt there, causing the big cube that is in the way to slide into a gap and create a path for Link to walk on. Through here, Link will find a Treasure Chest containing a Small Key that he can use to unlock the locked door back at the start of the room. Through this door, he will find the final puzzle, which involves conducting electricity through water. Link can use Magnesis to obtain a metal Treasure Chest containing a Gerudo Scimitar that is on a ledge above the entrance of the room. Link must use Magnesis to position the four metal cubes in the water so that they conduct the electric current from the green power sources to the switches. Charging both switches will open the way to the final room where Kay Noh waits. Kay Noh rewards Link for his resourcefulness by giving him a Spirit Orb.[2]
