Everything You Need To Know About Sign Of The Shadow Quest

Signs of The Shadow: How to Begin The Quest

The players are required to speak to Kass at the top of the Gerudo Tower in the north of Gerudo Town to begin this shrine quest. After meeting Kass they are required to listen to the song sung by Kass which is, “ As light shines from the northwest skies, From the tower’s shadow an arrow flies.” Kass gives the player an idea about the shadow of the tower that comes from the northwest.

After listening to the song, they have to look to the south of the tower to pierce heaven’s light for revealing the prize. The players have to glide down to the sheikha platform with the paraglider. Once they are on top of the platform, they have to draw their bow and fire an arrow at the sun at about 3:00 PM. The right time to shoot would be when the platform makes a sound and the sun becomes less bright. Even the platform turns red when the moon is over the tower directly. After doing this the Sasa Kai Shrine would appear.

Sasa Kai Shrine (A Modest Test Of Strength)

Sasa Kair Shrine is a combat trial instead of a typical puzzle shrine. This is another fight with a guardian where the players are at liberty to take it down as they like. In this the players are treated to a battle with Guardian Scout III- that is one of the many Test of Strenght challenges in Zelda: The Breath of the Wild. The players are required to defeat Guardian Scout III who is armed with a sword and a spear that has 1,500 health. Dodge attacks and rush when you can.

The tiny guardian, however, hunkers down and spins a laser around. Backing off as well as using the updraft lets the players glide over the guardian to strike them down. The guardian tries a last-ditch effort and charges up a laser attack on reaching the end of its health. If the creature’s health is low enough, the players should rush as well as kill it before it fires off the laser. If the health is too high, they are required to run as well as dodge multiple shots. The players have to grab the chest containing a Frostblade after defeating the guardian. They are then required to speak to Monk Sasa Kai for a spirit orb.
