Stopping the Divine Beast Vah Medoh

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on how to take down the Divine Beast Vah Medoh, which is required to be able to access the Divine Beast in Rito Village.

How to Calm the Divine Beast Vah Medoh

Once you’ve completed the Flight Range, speak to Teba and prepare to fight the Divine Beast.

(1 of 2) Aim slightly above the cannons to allow for the arrow to arc

Aim slightly above the cannons to allow for the arrow to arc (left), Press [X] immediately afterwards to restore stamina and continue Paragliding (right)

Vah Medoh generates updrafts all around it, meaning we are pretty self-sufficient once Teba gets us close enough. As you approach, Vah Medoh will immediately cloak itself in a shield that can only be dispelled by destroying four cannons, each located along a corner of the barrier.

Do the same glide, drop, glide routine to maintain airtime and stamina. Teba will fly close to the cannons to draw their fire. Your job is to shoot the cannons with Bomb Arrows. You need to get in pretty close or else your arrows will fall short. Each cannon will need two Bomb Arrows to be fully destroyed.

After you have destroyed Vah Medoh’s barrier, Tebah will drop you off at the entrance and leave due to an injury. Divine Beast Vah Medoh will now be a fast travel point. Revali will also speak to you and point you to the Guardian Stone. When you are ready, it is time to enter the Divine Beast Vah Medoh.
