Sign of the Shadow is a Shrine Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Overview

At the top of Gerudo Tower, Link encounters Kass. Kass will ask Link if he wishes to hear a song about the area surrounding them, and once Link replies positively, Kass sings about an arrow opening the way to a treasure. [2] Link must then Paraglide down to an outcropping far below and south of Gerudo Tower, where a pedestal awaits. Once the moon or the sun intersects with Gerudo Tower, Link must shoot an arrow at the tower while standing on the pedestal. This will then cause Sasa Kai Shrine to rise from beneath the ground.

Objectives

Stage Description
1 "As light shines from the northwest skies, From the tower's shadow an arrow flies. Pierce heaven's light to reveal the prize."

Solving the riddle of the ancient song that Kass sang for you at Gerudo Tower is likely to reveal a shrine.
Complete "As light shines from the northwest skies, From the tower's shadow an arrow flies. Pierce heaven's light to reveal the prize."

When the light was in the northwest, you saw Gerudo Tower cast a shadow upon a pedestal. After firing an arrow toward the light from the top of that pedestal, a shrine appeared!
