Ketoh Wawai Shrine, designated by the Trial name Ketoh Wawai's Blessing, is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Ketoh Wawai Shrine is located in the northeast corner of Thyphlo Ruins. Link must first enter the ruins from any direction, and will initiate a cutscene where Ketoh Wawai tells Link to come find the shrine within the ruins, which are now covered in darkness. [1] Not only must Link find the site of the shrine, but must also defeat a Hinox to use the puzzle ball around its neck to active the shrine.

Themes and Navigation

Ketoh Wawai Shrine features one chest and Ketoh Wawai. Ketoh Wawai will tell Link that he does not need to be tested, saying that he has already proved himself by completing the Shrine Quest. [2] Ketoh Wawai will then give Link a Spirit Orb, [3] and will wish Link well before fading away.[4]

The Treasure Chest contains an Ancient Core.
