How to Complete The White Birds Guidance

Shane Williams

Once you’ve landed onto The Hyrule Surface after completing the tutorial up on the Great Sky Island you’ll be able to find lots of Side Quests and Adventures. This page will navigate you through the necessary steps to finding and completing The White Birds Guidance Shrine Quest.

Speak with Laissa in Rito Village to begin the quest.

Laissa, a resident of Rito Village, can’t seem to recall the location of a cave she found a while back. Apparently the cave contained a rock matching the one wreathed in green light beneath the village’s general store.

Where to Start The White Birds Guidance Shrine Quest

In order to start this Shrine Quest you’ll want to fast travel to Rito Village, then head up the stairs and you’ll find Laissa standing near the balcony. Speak with her and you’ll find out that she’s trying to remember the location of a cave that she visited for food, but all she knows is that she found it whilst looking for a white bird.

Where to Find the White Bird

Once you’ve finished speaking with her you’ll want to sleep to the morning using a nearby campfire, then head up to the Vah Medoh’s Perch which is located at the top of the large rock in the center of the village. You can do this by going up the stairs, then keep using the "Ascend" iconAscend Ability on the rock above until you reach the top of the Perch. Here you’ll want to use the "Purah Pad" iconPurah Pad and look out to the west and you’ll see a bird made out of snow below.

(1 of 4) Glide up to the top of the rock

You’ll now want to glide down towards that bird, but before you do you’ll want to make sure you have some Cold Resistant Armor which can be bought from the shop in Rito Village or you have some Cold Resistance Food which can be done by cooking ingredients with "Spicy Pepper" iconSpicy Peppers. When you’re prepared, glide down and enter the "West Lake Totori Cave" iconWest Lake Totori Cave which is to the left of it. Follow the linear path around until you come across the Wao-os Shrine and interact with it to bring the quest to a close. You can read our full guide on How to Complete Wao-os Shrine right here.
