Simosiwak Shrine location and walkthrough in Zelda: TOTK

Located on Bravery Island in the Great Hyrule Forest Sky region of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the Simosiwak Shrine poses a unique challenge for players. In this guide, we’ll help you find the Simosiwak Shrine location and walk you through the “Proving Grounds: Lights Out” challenge to collect the chest and Light of Blessing. Our shrine locations page or interactive Hyrule map can direct you toward some other fun adventures once you’ve completed this challenge.

Finding the Simosiwak Shrine Location
To access the Simosiwak Shrine, head to Bravery Island, one of the sky islands in the Great Hyrule Forest Sky region. The exact coordinates of the shrine are (0163, 1973, 0759). The easiest way to reach Bravery Island is to head to the Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower, launch into the air, and glide southward to the circle-shaped island at the southern end of the group of four islands. Alternatively, if you’ve unlocked the nearby Mayim Shrine, you can just paraglide from the North Hyrule Sky Archipelago.

Simosiwak Shrine Walkthrough
Once you enter the Simosiwak Shrine, you’ll be stripped of your gear and placed in near-darkness. To make your way through the shrine, you’ll need to pick up two light shields and a wooden stick on your left as you head down the small staircase at the beginning of the challenge. From here, follow these steps:

1. Press ZL to hold up your shield and shine its light ahead of you.

2. Defeat the Constructs to solve this shrine. One is located on the left and has a light shield of its own that will shine into your eyes if you’re not careful.

3. Use the long stick and old wooden shield leaning against the wall by the first Construct to take it down. Fuse the Construct’s horn to the wooden stick to create a stronger weapon.

4. Look for more Constructs as you make your way further into the darkness. Be cautious, as you’re under-armed.

5. Creep up on the next Construct for a Sneakstrike to deal a large amount of damage. This one is stronger than the first and has a Flame-Emitter Club. There are two Flame Emitter devices nearby that you can fuse to wooden sticks.

6. Head up the stairs in the dark to face the final Construct. This one uses a Fire Rod and is surrounded by three rubies. Sneakstrike if possible and avoid its fireballs to emerge victorious.

7. Proceed through the gate that opens after defeating the final Construct and open the chest to collect a bright elixir and receive a Light of Blessing.

With our guide, you should be able to navigate the Simosiwak Shrine on Bravery Island with ease. Good luck!
