The Shrine of Resurrection is a location in Breath of the Wild[1] and Tears of the Kingdom. The Champions' Ballad serves as the starting point for the Divine Beast Tamer's Trial as well as the entrance to the Final Trial.

Features and Overview[]

Breath of the Wild[]

Link awakens from his Slumber of Restoration within the Shrine after hearing the call of Princess Zelda,[2] whose voice he has forgotten. He is guided to a pedestal, where he receives the Sheikah Slate.[3] Afterwards, the door to the chamber opens, leading to another room containing two Treasure Chests with the Old Shirt and the Well-Worn Trousers. Behind the Chests rests a pedestal from which Link can place the Sheikah Slate and open the entrance to the Shrine of Resurrection, leading to the Great Plateau.[4]

One hundred years prior to his awakening, Link was nearly defeated after Calamity Ganon's return.[5] After being saved by Princess Zelda near Fort Hateno,[6] she ordered him to be placed in the Shrine of Resurrection to recover.[7] Robbie and Purah were the ones to bring him there.[8]

After Link has left the Great Plateau, he can return to the Shrine of Resurrection to find a cloud of dust and leaves hovering in the capsule he was resting in. Interacting with the cloud will make a Korok appear, who will give the young hero a Korok Seed.

In The Champions' Ballad, Link must return here to begin the Divine Beast Tamer's Trial. After completing all of the Trials, the Final Trial can be accessed by placing the Sheikah Slate in the pedestal. In doing this, the chamber is revealed to actually be an elevator which descends into the dungeon.

Tears of the Kingdom[]

Due to the passage of time, most Sheikah technology have been removed from Hyrule. This leaves the same layout as before, but now looks like a common cave. The location of the Slumber of Restoration is removed with nothing but a Hot Spring now.

What is new is behind the Hot Spring is a hole that leads deeper into the cave into a Yiga Clan Hideout. If Link tries to pick up a Mighty Bananas, two Yiga Footsoldier will attack. After the fight, a Ranger Construct will give a Schema Stone to Link. A secret Eightfold Longblade can picked up after burning away a giant Yiga wall tapestry.
