Zelda Breath of the Wild Oman Au Shrine - Find the Oman Au Shrine and Beat The Magnesis Trial

Here's how to find the Oman Au Shrine in Zelda Breath of the Wild, and beat the Magnesis Trial.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild features well over 100 Shrines in total, but the first one you'll come to is the Oman Au Shrine. In this Zelda Breath of the Wild Oman Au Shrine guide, we'll be walking you through everything you need to know in order to conquer the Breath of the Wild Magnesis Trial, which is pretty tricky.

After activating the Great Plateau Tower, make your way to the mysterious glowing shrine in the north east of the region and examine the terminal by using your Sheikah Slate device. Enter the Oman Au Shrine by activating the lift. You're about to tackle your first Trial.

Zelda Breath of the Wild Magnesis Trial Solution

Examine the portal in the far left corner. This unlocks the Magnesis rune ability, allowing you to lift and move heavy metallic objects.

Use your new rune ability to lift the large metal panels in the centre of the room, revealing a ladder to an underground area.

Make your way through to the next room and remove the metal cube from the brick wall.

This wall, along with the whole trial, is very simple to tackle

With the wall collapsed you can easily climb through into the next area, although be prepared to fight a mechanical spider. The spider will fire energy blasts at you, so your best option is to use your bow and arrow from distance.

Walk towards the end of the room, stopping after you've crossed the bridge. Use the Magnesis ability to move the metal panel that served as a bridge, placing it over the gap that was previously stopping you from crossing to the final section containing the two large metal gates. Pull the gates open using your Magnesis and you've reached the end of the Magnesis Trial. You'll be rewarded with a Spirit Orb.

Return to the Plateau tower and use your scope (click in the right stick to activate) to search for new shrines. The remaining shrines in The Isolated Plateau quest can be tackled in any order (although cold areas require warmth, either from the Warm Doublet or from fire), so the choice of what to tackle next is up to you.

Head to the Ja Baij Shrine and Beat the Bomb Trial, the Keh Namut Shrine and Beat the Cryonis Trial, or the Owa Daim Shrine and Beat the Stasis Trial. If you're having trouble against the game's deadly enemies we've got a guide on how to kill Guardians, and money won't be an issue any more thanks to this getting rupees quickly guide.

As the first shrine and trial in Breath of the Wild, don't assume what will follow will be on the same level. Trials gradually become more and more devious, especially if you want to find the secrets in each. Stick with our guide and you'll sail through without any problems.

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.
