The Shoqa Tatone Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Modest Test of Strength,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Shoqa Tatone Shrine is located on Puffer Beach in the Faron Grasslands. It is initially buried beneath the ground, though there is a Stone Sphere Socket and an Ancient Orb nearby.

However, the Ancient Orb is being cuddled by Loone, who has named it Roscoe and is very affectionate towards it.[2] When Loone realizes that Link is watching and wants the Ancient Orb, Loone insists that she would never give it up.[3]

Loone almost immediately confesses to lying, saying what she really wants to see is Guardians.[4] She wants to see many Guardians, not just the rusted ones found on the Beach.[5] If she ever does get to see these Guardians, Loone hints that she might leave Roscoe, but due to the danger, she doubts this will ever happen.[6] This begins the Shrine Quest "Guardian Slideshow"

For the Quest, Link must use the Camera Rune to take photos of a Guardian Skywatcher,[7] a Guardian Scout,[8] and a Guardian Stalker.[9] After showing Loone the photos, Link can ask her for Roscoe, which she will allow him to take.[10]

Link can take the Ancient Orb, which can be placed into the Stone Sphere Socket. This causes Shoqa Tatone Shrine to emerge from the Beach, completing the Quest. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he's greeted by its Monk, Shoqa Tatone.[11]

Themes and Navigation

When Link enters the shrine, a Guardian Scout III, wielding a Guardian Shield+ and a Guardian Spear+, will emerge from below. To complete the trial, Link must defeat the Guardian Scout III.

Upon defeat, the Guardian Scout III will drop the weapon and shield and the portcullis to continue towards Shoqa Tatone will open. The Monk awards a Spirit Orb for mastering the trial.[12] Afterwards, Shoqa Tatone wishes Link well before fading away.[13]

Beyond the portcullis is a Treasure Chest which contains a Royal Broadsword.
