Magnesis is a Rune ability in Breath of the Wild.[1] The Rune allows Link to lift and carry metallic objects using magnetic energy.[1]

Location and Uses

The Magnesis Rune is obtained in the Oman Au Shrine at the Great Plateau. The Magnesis Rune allows Link to harness magnetic energy to lift and carry metallic objects into the air effortlessly, which can then be moved and placed elsewhere.[1] When the Rune is activated, red grid lines cover Link's immediate surroundings. Objects in that area that can be picked up will have a red filter, and will turn yellow as the Rune's cursor moves over them, signifying that they can be selected. Once lifted, Link can manipulate the object either by moving it in the air, dropping it, or pushing or pulling it.

Treasure Chests can be picked up using the Magnesis Rune—this can be used to move Treasure Chests that are normally out of Link's reach.

Nomenclature

The word magnesis comes from the Greek magnetis lithos (μαγνήτης λίθος) which means "lodestone from the region of Magnesia".[2]
