The Goma Asaagh Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Major Test of Strength,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Goma Asaagh Shrine is located in the Hebra Mountains directly under Hebra Peak, surrounded by giant chunks of Ice. Link must either melt the Ice or find a way to go over its top to access the Ancient Shrine. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by its Monk, Goma Asaagh.[2]

Themes and Navigation

Goma Asaagh Shrine features a large, central chamber which acts as an arena. As Link approaches the center of the arena, a Guardian Scout IV wielding an Ancient Battle Axe++, a Guardian Spear++, and a Guardian Sword++ will rise from a pit to challenge Link. The floor of the Ancient Shrine is covered by a thin layer of Water, allowing pillars of Ice to be created using Cryonis that can protect Link from the Guardian Scout. Link must defeat the Guardian Scout IV in order to progress forward.

Once Link has defeated the Guardian Scout, the portcullis in the back of the room will open, allowing Link access to the Monk's Pedestal. When Link approaches Goma Asaagh, the Monk will give him a Spirit Orb as a reward for completing the Trial.[3] Afterwards, Goma Asaagh will wish Link well before fading away.[4]

Behind the portcullis, Link can find a stone Treasure Chest. When it is opened, Link will receive a Royal Claymore.
