Description

Finding The Ruins

There is no fast way to reach either the ruins or the shrine due to various reasons:

  • Qaza Tokki Shrine is relatively close, but still markedly distant from it. The path from the shrine includes leaving the North Lomei Labyrinth, going around the northern chasm to the south and then heading east through the Drenan Highlands, and then encountering a Lynel, which guards the southern fork. The southern fork is identifiable by being uphill and the various Zonai statues/columns along the path.
  • Shora Hah Shrine is inside the hollowed Isle of Rabac, which is surrounded by a lava lake. Even if Link makes it to shore, there's also the Eldin Mountains to clear, and reaching the ruins' entrance requires to circle around them through the opposite western side;
  • The shrines in the Great Hyrule Forest are even closer, but the fog of the Lost Woods makes it impossible to leave without being surrounded by the white haze and transported to the interior of the woods.

Overview

The Thyphlo Ruins are completely shrouded in darkness, and they can only be accessed/exited from the west or by teleporting away. They're surrounded by a bog, so they can't be accessed to by swimming. The ruins can be paraglided into, but the sudden cover of darkness may completely disorient the player upon landing. The veil of darkness begins in the middle of the bog, well before the visual limit of the dome. The ruins feature several bird-shaped spires whose beaks point Link towards the general path leading to the Ketoh Wawai Shrine. It's encouraged that Link lights them for orientation. There are also Fire Rods and other fire weapons available to use. Zumi at the Serenne Stable will mention the ruins when prompted.

Though they are luminous, Ancient and Elemental weapons other than the rods are not bright enough to be useful inside the ruins.

These ruins are filled to the brim with Zonai statues similar to the ones in the Zonai Ruins. However, statues and figures seem to be placed grouped right next to each other, implying that they were placed haphazardly, or further implying that the ruins were a depository for the Zonai statues.

It's not known why the ruins are shrouded in darkness, but unlike other environmental-conditioned locations like Toh Yahsa Shrine, clearance of the Shrine Quest does not remove the permanent darkness status. The ruins can be navigated via the use of torches or other luminous resources like Daruk's Protection; if the proper DLC has been downloaded and installed, and provided that the player has cleared EX The Champions' Ballad, the Master Cycle Zero can be used to navigate the ruins by using its front light. It's also not known when and under what circumstances the shrine was built inside the ruins.
