The Mozo Shenno Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Major Test of Strength,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

The Shrine is located in the Hebra Mountains. If Link initiates the Shrine Quest "The Bird in the Mountains" by talking to Molli in Rito Village, she will tell Link a story about her grandfather flying northwest from the lone cedar tree atop Talonto Peak after seeing a huge snow white bird and finding something super important inside the belly of the bird.[2] If Link glides northwest with the Paraglider from the same cedar tree, he can see the Ancient Shrine hidden in a small cave under the Biron Snowshelf, which resembles a white bird with its wings spread. Activating the Shrine will complete the Quest. As Link enters the Shrine, he is greeted by the Shrine's Monk, Mozo Shenno.[3]

Themes and Navigation

Mozo Shenno Shrine features a large central chamber which acts as an arena. As Link approaches the center of the arena, a Guardian Scout IV wielding an Ancient Battle Axe++, a Guardian Sword++ and a Guardian Spear++ will rise from a pit to challenge Link. There are metal blocks embedded into the floor of the chamber, which can be lifted with Magnesis to protect Link from the Guardian Scout IV. Link must defeat the Guardian Scout IV to cause a portcullis separating him from the Monk to rise. Once Link has done so, Mozo Shenno will give Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial,[4] and will wish Link well before fading away.[5]

A Treasure Chest behind the portcullis contains a Diamond.
