Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

The Arbiter's Grounds are a sparse group of Gerudo Ruins in the southern part of the Gerudo Desert. A majority of the ruins are buried beneath the Sand, but their architectural style indicates they were created by the Gerudo.[3] What can be seen are the remains of several doorways and walls, some of which have scaffolding or a Ladder appended to their sides. At the center of the Arbiter's Grounds is a natural rock formation, at the base of which are Ore Deposits and Rare Ore Deposits. Due to the intense Heat in the area, Link requires at least two levels of Heat Resistance in order to traverse the Grounds without taking damage. At night, Link needs two levels of Cold Resistance, since the Gerudo Desert becomes a Freezing Climate.

Among the Arbiter's Grounds, a Molduga swims through the Sand.[4] Link can stand on the ruins to avoid its detection. If it senses Link is nearby, it will rush towards him and attack.

A single Korok Seed Puzzle can be found at the Arbiter's Grounds. On top of the natural rock formation at their center, Link will find a Rock. If he picks it up, it will be revealed as a Natural Hiding Spot. A Korok will then appear and give Link a Korok Seed as a reward.[5]
