Blue Flame Pedestals are Objects in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses[]

Blue Flame Pedestals are a special type of Torchlight that can only be lit with a Blue Flame, which can be retrieved from the Ancient Furnaces. However, in Ancient Shrines and Divine Beast Vah Rudania, these Pedestals serve as the sources of Blue Flames. Their lights can be extinguished by Ice Arrows or with a gust of wind from a Korok Leaf.

The paths between both the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab and Hateno Ancient Tech Lab and the nearest Ancient Furnaces are lined with Blue Flame Pedestals. These Pedestals have a protective roof, which keeps the Blue Flame safe from Rain or other environmental hazards. Purah suggests that Link make use of the Blue Flame Pedestals to aid in his retrieval of the Blue Flame for the Lab's Furnace.[2]

The only Ancient Shrine that utilizes Blue Flame Pedestals as part of its trial is Shora Hah Shrine, located on the Isle of Rabac. Within, Link must light several Blue Flame Pedestals in order to progress. In addition, the interior of Divine Beast Vah Rudania is dark when Link first enters, save for two lit Blue Flame Pedestals. He must use these Blue Flames to navigate the darkness and activate Ancient Technology.
