Divine Beast Vah Ruta (Main Quest)



Complete Seek Out Impa Main Quest and begin Free the Divine Beasts
Complete Reach Zora's Domain




Divine Beast Vah Ruta is a Main Quest from Breath of the Wild. Part of the overarching Free the Divine Beasts Main Quest, it requires defeating Waterblight Ganon to recover Mipha's spirit and the titular Divine Beast Vah Ruta.


As part of the Free the Divine Beasts main quest, Link is pointed in the direction of Zora's Domain. Coming into proximity with the Zora River will trigger the Reach Zora's Domain Main Quest, and once complete, Link can speak with King Dorephan to begin this quest.



Step Description
You have been asked to help appease Vah Ruta, Divine Beast of Water. The task will require a great many shock arrows.

Find Muzu in Zora's Domain square to find out where to get them.
You asked Muzu where to get the arrows, but he refuses to help because you're a Hylian. However, he seems willing to cooperate if you can somehow prove that you were special to Mipha.

You have the Zora armor that Mipha made for you. Maybe it will be proof enough.
According to Muzu, you can get shock arrows from Ploymus Mountain.

Wearing the Zora armor allows you to swim up waterfalls, so swimming up the waterfall east of Zora's Domain will make for a nice shortcut.

First, you'll need to collect 20 shock arrows.
You collected the 20 shock arrows you'll need to face the Divine Beast. Now head to East Reservoir Lake and meet with Sidon.

The lake is directly below Shatterback Point, the peak of Ploymus Mountain.
You met up with Sidon at East Reservoir Lake and are ready to put those shock arrows to use. Their electricity can activate the devices on Divine Beast Vah Ruta's back.
You activated the devices on Divine Beast Vah Ruta's back, halting its barrage.

Now's your chance. Head inside and take back the Divine Beast!
You defeated Waterblight Ganon, which had taken control of Divine Beast Vah Ruta.

Divine Beast Vah Ruta has been enshrined to the west of Lanayru Great Spring.

Return to Zora's Domain and report to King Dorephan.
You told King Dorephan everything that's happened so far, and now it seems even members of the Zora's Domain council have accepted you.

You've also earned one of the Champion's charms, Mipha's Grace.

Divine Beast Vah Ruta has enshrined itself in preparation for the battle with Calamity Ganon.
