Oman Au shrine walkthrough in Zelda Breath of the Wild

Utilize magnetism to complete the trial

Oman Au is a shrine within The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Great Plateau.

On this page, we’ll help you find the Oman Au shrine location and puzzle solution, and walk you through the Magnesis Trial to collect the chest and spirit orb reward at the end.

The Oman Au shrine is one of the four necessary shrines to complete the main quest “The Isolated Plateau” and it’s how you unlock the Magnesis Rune ability.

Once you are done here, our shrine locations page can direct you to the next nearest shrine to tackle.

Oman Au Shrine walkthrough

  1. Enter the Oman Au shrine and interact with the terminal to get magnesis, the power to move metal things, which (no coincidence) is exactly what you need to do in this shrine.
  2. Use magnesis to move the metal plates on the floor. Then jump down and walk through the passageway and back up to ground level.
  3. Use magnesis to pull (or push, because why not!) the metal block in the wall.
  4. Hop through and destroy the guardian scout hiding behind the wall.
  5. Walk from the first to the second platform, over the metal plate. Then turn around and use magnesis to move the metal plate between the second and third platform.
  6. Facing the giant doors while standing on the third platform, turn left and use magnesis to pull the treasure chest down from the platform. Open it to get the traveler’s bow, a powerful bow that will give you an edge this early in Breath of the Wild.
  7. Use magnesis to open the giant doors.
  8. Head up the stairs to the alter and meet Oman Au, who will give you your first spirit orb. (You’ll get one for every shrine that you beat.)
