The Spring of Wisdom
Begin the Quest
Link can begin the quest by speaking with Medda, who is a farmer at Hateno Village. During the daytime, Medda can be found farming behind the house that is located directly across from the Kochi Dye Shop. Medda will speak about the Spring of Wisdom, found on top of Mount Lanayru. It is a place where princesses of Hyrule Castle go for a purification ceremony. After speaking with Medda, this will begin the shrine quest.
Mount Lanayru is at a much higher elevation and is very cold. Link will need to wear some armor with Level 2 Cold Resistance, such as the Snowquill Set in order to survive. Alternatively, if Link wears the Warm Doublet, along with consuming a meal or elixir with Cold Resistance, he will be able to survive. The quest will also require Link to use Arrows and it is recommended that he bring at least 10 Arrows.
When Link climbs to the top of the mountain, he will find Naydra, encased in Malice. Shoot the Malice Eyeball above Naydra's head, which will cause Naydra to being flying around the mountain. Link will need to follow Naydra around and shoot the three remaining Malice Eyeballs. Each time Link removes some of the malice, Naydra will fly to a different area.
- Naydra first hover above Mount Lanayru.
- Naydra will then fly south to Madorna Mountain.
- Naydra then moves to the Naydra Snowfield to the west.
After Naydra has been free from the malice, he will be restored to his original form and will fly back to the Spring of Wisdom. Link will appear back here as well and can then shoot Naydra with an arrow. This will cause Naydra to fly up and drop Naydra's Scale. Link can then run over and grab it, where he can then drop it in front of the Goddess Statue ahead as an offering. This will cause the door behind the statue to open, revealing the Jitan Sa'mi Shrine and completing the quest.
