The Yowaka Ita Shrine, designated by the Trial name Collected Soul, is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild. It is exclusive to The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack.

Entrance to the Shrine

The Yowaka Ita Shrine is on the Great Plateau in the Forest of Spirits as part of the Main Quest, "EX The Champions' Ballad". To access the Ancient Shrine, Link must defeat the various Bokoblins and Chuchus that appear within the Forest during the Trial. After the last enemy is defeated, the Shrine will rise up from beneath the ground. As Link enters the Shrine, he is greeted by the Shrine's Monk, Yowaka Ita.[1]

Themes and Navigation

The Yowaka Ita Shrine features one large chamber with three platforms. The first platform has a slot for an Ancient Orb directly in front of the entrance. Yowaka Ita is behind a portcullis beside the slot. Behind the slot, the platform slopes downward and two Spiked Boulders and two small Boulders continually roll down the slope, bouncing off of obstacles in their path before falling off the bottom of the platform. At the bottom of the platform are two thin metal bridges to the second platform which has a slot for a big Ancient Orb in front of a portcullis and a large metal bucket. The third platform is floating off to the side of the second platfrom and slopes downward toward the second platform. On the thrid platform, three small Boulders, two Spiked Boulders, a Boulder, an Ancient Orb and a big Ancient Orb are continually rolling down ramps and then down the slope. One part of the platform has a large moving platform that launches anything that gets stuck on it.

To complete the Shrine, Link must put the Ancient Orb into the slot near the entrance of the Shrine. This will open the portcullis in front of Yowaka Ita, allowing Link to talk to the Monk. Yowaka Ita will present Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial,[2] and will wish Link well before fading away.[3]

A metallic Treasure Chest containing a bundle of five Bomb Arrows spawns on the moving platform in the third platform. A stone Treasure Chest containing a Phrenic Bow can be found in a small chamber behind the portcullis on the second platform that opens when the big Ancient Orb is put into the nearby slot.
