Mayamats Shrine Walkthrough

Upon entering the shrine, you’ll notice a ball bowl to your left and the exit straight ahead, but you can’t do anything with them just yet. Follow these steps to solve the puzzle and collect the Light of Blessing:

1. From the entrance, head left and use the air vents to paraglide up to the next level.

2. Take a left to find a ball on a shelf that’s out of reach.

3. Step into the alcove below it and use Ascend to hop up to the ball.

4. Grab the ball with Ultrahand and drop it to the floor.

5. Carry the ball back the way you came and drop it into the trench on the left.

6. Hop across the ball to reach the chest on the far side, which contains a Large Zonai Charge.

7. To make the crossing easier, use Ultrahand and Recall if you’re having trouble.

8. Carry the ball to the right where you’ll find a vertical channel in the wall with a funnel shape at the top.

9. Drop the ball into the funnel and use Ascend to climb up through it.

10. In the next area, you’ll see a smaller ball rolling from left to right across some ramps on the wall ahead of you.

11. Use Recall to pause the rolling ball on the left ramp. Let it back up a little and then unpause your Recall ability to remove its momentum, causing it to fall onto the rails below the gap.

12. Carry the smaller ball back and attach it to the larger one.

13. Take the pair back to the rails leading down to the start of the shrine. Place the larger one on the rail and let it slide down, carrying the smaller ball with it.

14. To follow the balls, paraglide down along the rails (to avoid the air vent). Unstick the smaller ball from the larger one and drop it into the bowl by the exit gate.

15. Head through the gate and collect your Light of Blessing.
