The Mezza Lo Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name Ancient Trifecta,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Mezza Lo Shrine is initially buried beneath the ground of Rabia Plain. When Link first arrives in the area, he will find Kass, who will share that he knows an ancient song pertaining to their location.[2] The song describes mounting a beast with a bone crown atop its throne in order to reveal an Ancient Shrine.[3] Kass believes that "the lush green" refers to the plain, but he's unsure what animal wears a "crown of bone".[4] Listening to him initiates the Shrine Quest "The Crowned Beast".

To complete the Quest, Link must ride a Mountain Buck, which can be found at the pond nearby, onto the pedestal. Mounting these deer requires a high level of Stealth, as they'll run away if they spot Link nearby. Once this is done, the Shrine will emerge from the ground.

As Link enters the Mezza Lo Shrine, he's greeted by its Monk, Mezza Lo, who introduces the Trial.[5]

Themes and Navigation

This Shrine contains a crystal switch located up a ramp to the right from where you enter. When struck, this crystal rotates a platform in the center of the room clockwise through four positions. The area on the left has a treasure chest, the area on the opposite side has a floor switch which activates the door to Mezza Lo, and the area on the right is where the Monk is located.

In order to reach the Monk, the switch at the north end of the room must be pressed down. This can be done by using Magnesis and grabbing the treasure chest that is on the left side, and placing it onto the switch.

As with many Shrine in Breath of the Wild, there are numerous solutions to this puzzle, although it can be a bit tricky. Note that the laser in the room is being blocked by a large metallic block. If this block is moved, the laser will hit the crystal switch, rotating the platform. Link can use Stasis on the laser statue to temporary freeze it, which will cause the laser to strike the crystal when it unfreezes.

Link can also use Magnesis to control the large block and move it between the laser and the crystal, and then drop it, causing the laser to strike the switch again. Link can place a Remote Bomb next to the crystal switch, so that when he is on the third platform opposite, Link can detonate this to activate the crystal switch.

When Link reaches Mezza Lo, he will be granted a Spirit Orb for overcoming the Trial.[6] He then wishes Linka well before fading away.[7]
