To begin, follow the path to the first, main room of the Shrine and head towards the Construct you can see in the near distance. As you approach, this enemy Construct will sense your presence and activate.

To begin, you will get a prompt explaining the controls for a Side Hop. After you have read these instructions over, you will need to dodge the Construct’s attacks by using Side Hop. (ZL to target the enemy + L to strafe + X to jump)

Once you successfully time a Side Hop against the enemy Construct’s attack, you will get a prompt to counter with Link’s Flurry Rush ability. Quickly hit the Y button to time this counter and deal a lot of damage.

You will now receive instructions for how to perform a Backflip in battle. Once again, you will need to time a Backflip against the Construct’s attack and then counter with Link’s Flurry Rush ability.

With Backflips out of the way, you will receive instructions for how to Parry in combat. The Construct will be hurling attacks in your direction, and you’ll need to perform a successful Parry. To do this, you must have a Shield equipped and then be looking at your opponent while holding your shield with ZL.

As your opponent attacks you, hit the A button just before the attack lands to Parry and create an opening. You can follow up with more attacks to deal a lot of damage to enemies.

Lastly, you will need to perform a Charged Attack on the enemy Construct. Simply hold down the Attack button to wind up your swing, and then release to perform the attack. This will defeat the construct, leaving behind a Construct Bow and 1x Zonai Charge for you to grab and add to your inventory.

The gates to the other side will then open, allowing you to pass through. Now all you need to do is interact with the statue at the end to mark the Shrine as complete and receive another Light of Blessing. There’s also a chest at the end here that you can open to receive a Zonaite Sword. This Sword has increased power when fused with Zonai Devices.
