Games

Start

Arrive at the Thundra Plateau

Objective

Place Orbs in Proper Pedestals

Rewards

The paradoxical raincloud above the Thundra Plateau as seen from the Ridgeland Tower; it requires the Trial of Thunder to be cleared to go away.

Begin the Quest

When Link arrives at the Thundra Plateau, located just west of the Ridgeland Tower, this will begin the shrine quest. Until Link reaches this area and completes the shrine quest, it will continuously be thunderstorming. Thus, Link will need to have Shock Resistance, or he must unequip his electrified weapons.

Guide

The objective here is to get the four colored orbs onto the plateau and into their corresponding statue foot pedestals.

  • The Purple Orb is already on the plateau next to its appropriate slot.
  • The Green Orb is also on the plateau already, found on a tall statue next to its slot. Use Stasis on the orb and then shoot it with a couple arrows to knock it down.
  • The Red Orb is located just east of the plateau. Link lift up the orb and place it on the other side of the ledge, closer to the plateau. From here, Link will need to use Stasis and build up enough energy to knock onto the plateau.
  • The Orange Orb is located just north of the plateau, way up on a higher structure. If Link cannot reach it using Revali's Gale, he can knock it down with Stasis and an Arrow. Then he can carry the orb to the platform just northeast of the plateau and use Stasis and some kinetic energy to launch it onto the plateau.

Once all four orbs are on the plateau, place them in their correct positions. The Toh Yahsa Shrine will appear and complete the quest.

To complete shrine, blowup all the boulders in the shrine with some Bombs. Then position the large metal block so that you can climb on top of it, and then up the staircase. Climb up a second staircase and then use Magnesis to grab the block and place it on the massive floor switch that is underneath the alter.

There is a treasure chest beneath the entrance, behind the blocks and it contains the Rubber Armor. A second treasure chest is found on the right and Link can knock it down by using Magnesis on the large metal block or the already opened treasure chest. This chest contains an Opal gem.

Trivia

  • There is a minor glitch in the game once the trial is completed, in which the orbs slightly rise from the pedestals, only to drop once Link approaches the orbs.
  • If observed from the Ridgeland Tower during sunny conditions, the plateau will have a dark gray cloud on top of it, denoting the paradoxical climate of the location. This cloud disappears once the trial is completed.
  • It's not necessary to clear the shrine to obtain the Rubber Armor. Also, not clearing the shrine will prevent the thunderstorm conditions from going away.
  • Out of the tasks that award a part of the Rubber Set, the Trial of Thunder is the most difficult one to complete.
