"The Eye of the Sandstorm" is a Shrine Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


To begin the Quest, Link must speak to Nobiro in the Kara Kara Bazaar. Nobiro is a Hylian who stands on a small outpost, watching the nearby sandstorm. He claims that the sandstorm stops for a few hours a day, but he has never seen it stop since he has been watching.[2] He then tells Link that there is a rumor of an ancient treasure inside the sandstorm.[3] When Link explores the Great Cliffs to the north where the sandstorm is, he will find the treasure and the quest is completed. The treasure turns out to be the Dako Tah Shrine. If Link talks to the Goron Strade at the Bazaar before freeing the Divine Beast Vah Naboris, Link will find out that the sandstorm clears up during the night.[4][5][6] Link can search for the Dako Tah Shrine while the sandstorm is gone by searching for it during the night between 9:00 PM and 4:00 AM. The sandstorm begins to return at 3:00 AM, but is not fully blown until 4:00 AM.


Stage Description
1 At the Kara Kara Bazaar, they say that the sandstorm visible from camp hides a treasure left by the ancients.

Keep close watch for when the sandstorm disappears, and then quickly hunt for the treasure.
Complete The treasure sleeping in the sandstorm visible from the Kara Kara Bazaar turned out to be an ancient shrine.

All that is left now is to overcome the hero's trial within.
