Zelda Breath of the Wild guide: Ta’loh Naeg shrine walkthrough and puzzle solutions

Ta’loh Naeg’s teaching

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

The Ta’loh Naeg shrine above Kakariko Village is another combat-type shrine, but this one teaches you a few new tricks.

Again, we’re not going to walk you through it — the game does a great job of that on its own. Here are the highlights.

  • Turn left and right before the fight begins to find chests containing an eightfold blade and a shield of the mind’s eye.
  • Side hop by locking onto an enemy with LZ and pressing left or right on the left thumbstick to strafe, then jumping.
  • Perform a perfect dodge to launch a flurry rush.
  • Perform a backflip by locking on, pressing back (away) on the left thumbstick and jumping.
  • A well-timed backflip will also unlock a flurry rush.
  • Perform a perfect guard by locking onto an enemy and parrying with the A button at the right time.
  • This, too, gives you the flurry rush option.
  • Hold down Y to do a charged attack.
  • Grab the opal in the chest on the way out to get your spirit orb.
