The Ke'nai Shakah Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Modest Test of Strength,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Ke'nai Shakah Shrine is hidden in a cave behind cracked rocks in Ulria Grotto in the Akkala Highlands. These rocks can be destroyed by Paragliding into Ulria Grotto from above, then shooting them with Bomb Arrows while in midair. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by its Monk, Ke'nai Shakah.[2]

Themes and Navigation

Ke'nai Shakah Shrine features a large, central chamber which acts as an arena. As Link approaches the center of the arena, a Guardian Scout III wielding an Ancient Battle Axe+ and a Guardian Sword+ will rise from a pit to challenge him. In order to reach the Monk's Pedestal, Link must defeat the Guardian Scout.

Once the Guardian Scout III has been defeated, the portcullis in the back of the room will rise, allowing Link access to the Monk's Pedestal. When he interacts with it, Ke'nai Shakah will give him a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial.[3] Afterwards, the Monk will wish Link well before fading away.[4]

In addition to the Monk's Pedestal, a stone Treasure Chest can be found behind the portcullis. This Chest contains a Sapphire.
