Objective

The Cursed Statue is a Shrine Quest from Breath of the Wild.

The quest is given to Link by Calip, who lives in a cabin just east of the wall at Fort Hateno. He is examining An Ancient Text and has a small book on his table that gives a riddle. After talking to Calip and acknowledging that he is a Doctor, he will give you the quest.[1]

During the daytime, Calip will make his way to a graveyard of statues, located northeast of the Cabin. He will remain there until 5pm each evening, before then heading back home to avoid the monsters that come out at nighttime.[2] Since Calip is never there during the evening, he is unable to solve the riddle. As An Ancient Text states, When a dark light resides in the cursed statue's eyes, pierce its gaze to purge the seal from the shrine.

The dark light is the nighttime light. At 9pm each evening, the eyes of one of the statues will begin to glow. Link can shoot it with an arrow, causing the Kam Urog Shrine to rise up from underground. This will complete the Shrine Quest.

  1. Hrm... This changes things... Very well then! I'm feeling charitable, so I'll let a few things spill. This is just between us, understand. "When a dark light resides in the cursed statue's eyes, pierce its gaze to purge the seal from the shrine." I'm still in the process of deciphering that one, so I don't suppose there's any harm in sharing it with you. That's my life in a nutshell. Days filled with researching shrines and nights spent studying ancient texts. That leaves no time to converse with passing strangers, so farewell. - Calip
  2. I only do fieldwork at shrines and ruins during the day. Why, you ask? Hmmm, could it have something to do with the hordes of monsters roaming at night? What an ignoramus... - Calip
