Ta'loh Naeg Shrine, designated by the Trial name Ta'loh Naeg's Teaching, is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Ta'loh Naeg Shrine is on a hill overlooking Kakariko Village in West Necluda. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by the Shrine's Monk, Ta'loh Naeg.[1]

Themes and Navigation

Ta'loh Naeg Shrine features a vast, open chamber with an open pit, in the middle of the chamber. In front of the elevator are two stone Treasure Chests. The Chest on the left contains an Eightfold Blade and the Chest on the right contains a Shield of the Mind's Eye. As Link approaches the center of the chamber, a Guardian Scout II wielding a Guardian Sword will rise from the pit. Ta'loh Naeg then instructs Link to Side Hop the Scout's attacks.[2] If Link does not have a Weapon, Ta'loh Naeg will tell Link that he cannot practice the skill without one.[3] When Link performs a Perfect Dodge, by Side Hopping an attack at the last moment, and counters with a Flurry Rush, Ta'loh Naeg instructs Link to Backflip the Scout's attacks.[4] If Link broke his last Weapon during the Flurry Rush, Ta'loh Naeg will tell him to prepare and try again.[3] Once Link performs a Perfect Dodge by Backflipping and counters with another Flurry Rush, Ta'loh Naeg will instruct Link to Parry the Guardian Scout's attack at the right time to perform a Perfect Guard.[5] If Link does not have a Shield, he is informed that he needs a Shield to practice the Perfect Guard.[6] After he successfully performs a Perfect Guard, Ta'loh Kaeg instructs Link to hit the Scout with a Charged Attack.[7] If Link broke or dropped his last Weapon before performing a Perfect Guard, Ta'loh Naeg will ask Link to try praticing after getting a Weapon.[3]

Upon striking the Guardian Scout with a Charged Attack, the Scout will be defeated and Ta'loh Naeg will congratulate Link for learning the skills.[8] A portcullis at the back of the chamber will then open, revealing a Chest containing an Opal and Ta'loh Kaeg. When approached, the Monk will give Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial,[9] and afterwards will wish Link well before fading away.[10]
