Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide: Sign of the Shadow shrine quest walkthrough (Sasa Kai shrine)

A modest test of strength

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Sign of the Shadow shrine quest culminates at Gerudo tower in southwestern Hyrule. In this guide, we'll show you how to find the shrine quest, Kas, solve his song-based riddle, reveal Sasa Kai Shrine and overcome a modest test of strength.

How to get the Sign of the Shadow shrine quest

At the top of Gerudo tower, you’ll find Kaas playing his accordion. Speak to him, and he’ll sing this song:

As light shines from the northwest skies,
From the tower’s shadow an arrow flies.
Pierce heaven’s light to reveal the prize

— Kaas, atop Gerudo tower

The fixed camera angle while Kaas sings actually reveals your destination: an outcropping far below Gerudo tower. Paraglide there, as shown in the gallery above.

When you land, light a fire (with flint and wood), sit until night and wait for the moon to intersect with Gerudo tower. (You can also do this during the day, when the sun intersects the tower generally between 3 and 4 p.m.) Shoot an arrow toward the tower, and the Sasa Kai shrine will rise from the ground, completing the Sign of the Shadow shrine quest.

Sasa Kai Shrine (A modest test of strength)

This is another fight with a guardian, and you’re free to take it down as you like. A couple of tips, though:

  • Two-handed weapon spinning attacks work really well.
  • If you’re holding a two-handed weapon, press B to sheathe it, and hold ZL to bring out your shield and block the guardian’s attacks.
