Zelda Breath of the Wild Ta’Loh Naeg Shrine - Find the Ta’Loh Naeg Shrine and Beat the Ta’Loh Naeg’s Teaching Trial

Here's how to make it through Ta'Loh Naeg's Teaching Trial in Zelda Breath of the Wild.

The Ta’Loh Naeg Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be a tough egg to crack, especially if you arrive unprepared. In this Zelda Breath of the Wild Ta’Loh Naeg Shrine guide, we'll be walking you through beating the Shrine as quickly and painlessly as possible for Link.

Zelda Breath of the Wild Ta'Loh Naeg's Teaching Trial

Head here to do some fight training

This trial is essentially a glorified combat tutorial, pitting Link against a three-legged mechanical enemy that will test your various skills. Before you start fighting you'll want to pick up the Eightfold Blade and Shield of the Mind's Eye in the chests found at the front of the room.

This triped doesn't put up much of a challenge

Your first task is to use side hop to avoid enemy attacks, using the opening to strike back at the triped. If you time the side hop directly you'll be able to hammer the Y button to perform a flurry of attacks. Next comes backflip training, then parrying with your shield, and finally charge attacks. Successfully complete each task and the training enemy will be defeated, leaving behind a 20 Damage-rated Guardian Sword.

Finish the Trial to get a cool sword

Head into the final area of the room and open the chest to find an Opal. Now walk up the stairs to compete the trial. That wasn't all that challenging but you probably now understand dodging a little more.

Depending on what quests you've completed up to this point, you might want to unlock the camera and take some pictures. If you've already done that you're probably in the middle of the Captured Memories quest. There are also the Ha Dahamar Shrine and Ree Dahee Shrine to attempt. Become deadly by taking a look at our how to kill Guardians guide, get rich with our tips on how to get lots of rupees, and manage your hearts and stamina with this respec guide.

The area of Kakariko Village is also home to numerous shops, selling cool items of clothing, food stuffs, arrows, and more. There's also a cooking pot outside the food store, making it an ideal place to prepare some food before you head off.
