Zelda Breath of the Wild Keo Ruug Shrine - Find the Keo Ruug Shrine and Beat the Fateful Stars Trial

Here's how to beat the Fateful Stars Trial in Zelda Breath of the Wild, and complete the Keo Ruug Shrine.

The Keo Ruug Shrine can be one of the tougher ones to crack in the early hours of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but not if you come prepared. In this Zelda Breath of the Wild Keo Ruug Shrine guide, we'll be walking you through beating the Breath of the Wild Fateful Stars Trial as easily as possible, so you can continue with your adventure in Hyrule.

Zelda Breath of the Wild Fateful Stars Trial Constellations Puzzle

Walk up the stairs and examine the plaque to get a hint as to how to solve this Trial: "Look to the stars for guidance. The constellations are the key." This is a slightly Zelda way of saying that the balls must be placed in the holes that signify how many times each constellation (the one drawn onto the far wall in front of each constellation column) is found on the large wall constellation map.

Use this to work out how many times each constellation appears

On the ground working from left to right across the room you'll see that the first constellation appears on the wall five times, the second appears three times, the third once, and the fourth two times. Place a ball in each hole that corresponds to the number of torches and you'll unlock the gate and be able to complete the Shrine and earn a Spirit Orb.

The torches represent numbers

If you head down the opened gate and to the right, you'll see another set of constellation puzzles. The rules are the same, so the balls need to be reorganised in the original room. From left to right across the room, place the first ball in the fourth hole, second ball in the second hole, third ball in the second hole, and fourth ball in the first hole.

With that Shrine completed you might want to get a new heart or stamina boost, or build up your rupee supply as quickly as possible. You'll also need to know how to kill Guardians and how to cook.

Even though you've technically cheated by following this guide, you should feel somewhat smug about completing one for the trickier Trial puzzles.

We now have a completely new Breath of the Wild guides hub dedicated to the new Champions' Ballad DLC Pack 2. For complete guides on how to solve every new Shrine in the expansion, as well as how to get your hands on the new Master Cycle Zero, head over to our Breath of the Wild Champions' Ballad guides hub.
