Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Find the Ree Dahee Shrine and Beat the Timing is Critical Trial

A walkthrough and guide for each area, quest, and shrine in Nintendo’s highly rated Switch and Wii U adventure. Plus some advice to help you get through the game's more challenging moments.

Guide by Tom Orry, Hirun Cryer, .

The Ree Dahee Shrine is located on the southern edge of the Duelling Peaks. It’s easily accessible from the path running alongside the Squabble River. The Trial here will test you ability to time switch presses, and is pretty cool as far as the early Shrines go.

If you're after something a bit different to what this article offers, head to our walkthrugh guide for Breath of the Wild's quests, along with general tips and tricks. Once you've finished this Trial head over there.

Head here to find the Ree Dahee Shrine

If you’re approaching Ree Dahee from the east you’ll come across a large camp of dangerous Bokoblins. Running into this group is a big risk unless you’re confident in your melee combat skills. Explosive barrels circle the group, which make for ideal targets and will weaken most of the enemies when hit. If you have any bomb arrows you can fire one in and make short work of the entire pack.

Once the Bokoblins have been defeated, head over to the foot of the cliff beneath the shrine. Climb up and examine to start the Timing is Critical Trial.

Step on the orange floor switch directly ahead. This tips a platform in the distance, sending a boulder into a glowing orange hole, in turn activating a moving platform. When the platform makes its way over, step on and ride it to the next area.

The next puzzle is very similar, but this time you must time the floor switch presses. Step onto the switch to roll the boulder down, then step off as it reaches the bottom of the ramp. If timed correctly the boulder will then change direction and end up in the hole to the left. This activates another moving platform that you can ride to the next area.

Freeze the floor switch to reach the secret chest

Before heading to the the end and claiming a Spirit Orb, it’s worth taking a moment to open the secret treasure chest up and to the left of the room. In order to reach it you’ll need to do a little time manipulation on the switch you've just used. Step on it to tilt the platform up towards the chest, then step off and use Stasis to freeze the switch in position just before the moving platform leaves. Ride the platform across and quickly head up to the chest. Getting the timing right is tricky, so you may have to make multiple attempts before finally cracking it. You’ve just acquired a Climber’s Bandana, which enhances your core strength and improves your climbing ability.

It’s now time to claim your Spirit Orb and continue your journey. If you're still wandering around Hyrule on foot now would be a good time to find a horse. If you haven't already done so, you could find the Ha Dahamar Shrine and tackle The Water Guides Trial. It's a good one! If you don't already know, there is a way to easily kill Guardians, plus we've got tips on how to get rupees quickly, and an article on getting more hearts and stamina.

The Duelling Peaks Stable is further up the river and is well worth a visit. You'll need 20 rupees in order to use their horse services, so make sure you've got that before you head over. Keep checking back on our guides and you'll cruise through the game without having any problems.
