Ke'nai Shakah Shrine, designated by the Trial name A Modest Test of Strength, is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Ke'nai Shakah Shrine is hidden in a cave behind cracked rocks in the Ulria Grotto in the Akkala Highlands. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by the Shrine's Monk, Ke'nai Shakah.[1]

Themes and Navigation

Ke'nai Shakah Shrine features a large, central chamber which acts as an arena. As Link approaches the center of the arena, a Guardian Scout III wielding an Ancient Battle Axe+ and a Guardian Sword+ will rise from a pit to challenge Link. In order to reach Ke'nai Shakah, Link must defeat the Guardian Scout III to cause a portcullis separating him from the Monk to rise. Once Link has done so, Ke'nai Shakah will give him a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial,[2] and afterwards will wish Link well before fading away.[3]

A Treasure Chest behind the portcullis contains a Sapphire.
