The Orochium Shrine in Zelda Tears of The Kingdom is tricky to complete because of its lasers and trapdoors. The objective of this “Courage to Fall” shrine, like many others, is to unlock a metal ball and place it at the entrance to get the Light of Blessing. To complete this objective, you must complete a series of puzzles and cross obstacles, which can be a bit confusing. In this guide, we will tell you how to solve the Orochium (Orochimaru, as named by the fans) Shrine in ToTK.

Steps to Complete Orochium Shrine in Zelda Tears of The Kingdom (ToTK)

The Orochium Shrine is located at coordinates in the Tabantha Tundra region (-1636, 2642, 0239). This shrine is confusing because as soon as you open the doors, you are faced with lasers that drop you down a trapdoor. If you’re stuck at the lasers in the Courage to Fall Shrine, then here’s how to solve it:

  1. Go around the left, beat the Soldier Construct II, and use the Ascend ability to climb up.

  3. Beat the enemies below and collect five arrows from the chest.
  4. Now, use Ultrahand ability to open the door and let the laser hit you.
  5. Once you’re down the trapdoor, dodge all lasers and use Ascend to reach the platform where the treasure chest is.
