Ridgeland Region

Zalta Wa Shrine

This Shrine is tucked away at the bottom of a small canyon
This is the location of Zalta Wa Shrine

Zalta Wa Shrine

You will see glowing orange all around the shrine. The major puzzles in this shrine revolve around or involve the use of two small, glowing orange balls. Hence, the name of the puzzle.

First, shoot the rightmost ball into the hollow next to it with an arrow. You do not need to use Stasis, you just need to destabilize the ball.

We tried to throw a few times
But in the end we just used the Stasis trick noted below. Stasis+ is recommended.

A gate will open next to you with another orange ball. Go pick it up and then stand on the nearby floor switch. Another gate will open, but only if you are standing on the switch. To solve this conundrum, throw the ball into the hollow from where you are standing.

Note: Alternatively, you can use Stasis on the switch you’re standing on and then walk over and put the ball in. This is also what you can do if you do try to throw the ball and you miss.

Now a platform will start moving. Hit the orange switch in the open room on it to trigger another platform to shoot up from the ground. Step on it when it is lowered to the ground so that you will get vaulted into the air. You want to land on the moving platform.

Run up these stairs
Don't miss this treasure chest

Go up the stairs and look to the left to see a treasure chest. Paraglide down over to it and you will earn a Knight’s Bow. Then get back onto the moving platform.

Go all the way up the stairs and you will reach the monk with the Spirit Orb.
