Owa Daim Shrine: Stasis Trial
This trial will present to you a fairly unique, new power.
As usual you will need to inspect the nearby pedestal because yet another power awaits you: Stasis. Stasis will let you control an object’s time. Sound confusing or odd? You have an opportunity to try it out right in front of you.
To see how it works, try using Stasis on the gear that is responsible for turning the rotating platform. Try to freeze the gear right as the platform is horizontal. The gear’s “time” is now frozen, enabling you to walk across the platform to the next stage of the shrine. After a short period of time, the gear will “catch up” all of its time and resume as normal.
Ahead of you, a ramp seems to have a ball constantly rolling down it. If you try and run, you’ll get squashed. Right as the ball is about to roll off the edge, freeze it again with Stasis. During this time, no new balls will be dropped since this ball is still here. Run up the ramp and then go to your right to the small protruding ledge to restore your stamina.
Ahead of you is another short ramp, and at the end of it is this shrine’s treasure chest. Pop it open for a Traveler’s Shield. Shields are invaluable, allowing you to safely fight and parry with your enemies, so equip it if you don’t have a shield already. If you already have something like a Pot Lid or a Bokoblin Shield, this shield is more durable.
Go back down the ramp that led you to the treasure chest and continue forward. You will see an Iron Sledgehammer leaning against a wall. Go ahead and grab it, especially if you do not already have one.
In front of you is a lone ball. Here is where you get to see the awesome part of Stasis.
Freeze the ball using Stasis and begin to hit it with the Iron Sledgehammer. Wack at it as hard as you can! An arrow will appear that will grow longer. That means you’re doing it right.
Once Stasis ends, the ball will be sent flying through the air because of all of its stored energy, freeing up the path for you to go forward. You can use this technique on any sort of heavy object Stasis can affect.
The last stretch of the shrine will lead you to the monk, indicating that the trial is finished. Inspect the blue veil and claim your Spirit Orb.
