Oromuwak Shrine is a shrine within The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s Tabantha Frontier region.

Our guide will help you find the Oromuwak Shrine location, solve its puzzles, and walk you through the “A Launching Device” challenge so you can collect the chest and Light of Blessing.

When you’re done, our shrine locations page or interactive Hyrule map can direct you toward something else to do.

Oromuwak Shrine location

The Oromuwak Shrine is found within the Tabantha Frontier region. You can find the shrine on top of an elevated area just southeast of Tama Pond and slightly west of Tabantha Hills Cave. We accessed it by using the Ascend ability from the cave system below. The exact coordinates are (-3079, 1618, 0243).

Oromuwak Shrine walkthrough

The Oromuwak Shrine is a multi-room shrine that largely focuses on the rocket items in the game. In it, you will need to use the rockets either piecemeal or by attaching them to various items in order to hit a target and solve the puzzles.

1. The first room’s puzzle is rather straightforward. If you look to your right, you will see a large pedestal area with two rockets. Pick up one rocket either with your hands or with the Ultrahand ability and walk across the room toward the wall with the giant glowing yellow target on the wall.

2. You’ll see a ramp leading up toward the target. Use Ultrahand and adjust the rocket’s position so it lines up with the angled track. Make sure the front end is pointing up toward the higher end of the track.

3. Once you line it up, hit the rocket to activate it. For us, it fired directly into a giant target on the wall and opened the gates allowing us into the next room. (If you make a mistake, don’t worry. The pedestal will respawn another rocket for you to use.)

4. As you enter the second room, you will notice a minecart on a track. Go back to the previous room. Grab the rockets one-by-one and bring them back to the second room.

5. Use the Ultrahand ability to adhere the rockets on each side of the minecart on the track. Make sure to adhere him to the longer sides.

6. Jump in the minecart. When you’re in, activate the rockets by hitting them, and ride the minecart to the upper level of the room.

7. Once you are on the upper level of the room, look up toward the corner of the room closest to the end of the tracks. You will see an isolated platform hanging out from the wall. There is a chest on it.

8. Turn around and grab one of the three rockets laying on the giant ramp. Attach one of the rockets to a shield. Run over and activate the rocket while attached to your shield, and ride up and land on the platform with the chest. Open it for a ruby.

9. After you get the chest, jump back down and grab one of the minecarts sitting around using the Ultrahand ability.

10. Using Ultrahand, carry it to the track and set it so that its long side is lined up with the ramp tracks, and point forward. (We put the minecart on one of the upper grooves so that it would be easy to add rockets.)

11. There are three rockets sitting on the track as well. Grab two and use Ultrahand to fasten them to the minecart. You are going to want to put one on each side, as seen below:

12. Jump in the minecart one last time and activate both rockets. It should fly to the other end of the room. Jump out and claim your Light of Blessing.
