How to Find Shoda Sah Shrine

Shoda Sah Shrine is found behind the waterfall at Riola Spring. You’ll want to paraglide off of a cliff nearby the waterfall and then paraglide through the waterfall once you’re about half way down.

The shrine is behind the waterfall at Riola Spring.

How to Complete Shoda Sah: Impeccable Timing

In front of you, you’ll find 5 balls. You’ll need to use the balls on the mechanisms on either side. We’ll start with the one on the right because it yields some treasure! Firstly, place a ball in the v-shaped crevice. Then, wait until the moving platform in the water has lined up and then hit the orange crystal to cause the apparatus to hit the ball into the hole at the center of the moving platform. Once the ball has landed in the hole, a treasure chest will be flung at you and you can loot it for x5 ice arrows!

Launch the ball into the hole to earn yourself some Ice Arrows!

They’ve given you some extra balls because this can be a bit tricky to get right on the first go!

You want to repeat this process on the apparatus to the left. The premise is still the same but this time there are moving barricades that you’ll need to take into account as you time your ball launch. Once you’ve gotten the ball in the second hole, you’ll be rewarded with another chest. This one has a small key inside that you can use to open up the shrine door at the end of the room and claim your Spirit Orb!
