Shrine Solution
1 You will need to utilize Cryonis in this shrine. Create two pillars to help you get near the waterfall then create another pillar on the waterfall so you can climb up.

2 Shoot down the guardian scout ahead with an arrow or simply deflect a shot back to it to take it down.
3 Use ice pillars to cross to the other side of the room.
Raise the chest nearby with an ice pillar then create more ice pillars so you can get near it. Open it to obtain an Ancient Core.
4 Use ice pillars to get closer to the right guardian scout before sniping it with your bow or with a deflected shot. Repeat this process on the remaining guardian scout.
On your left is a gate with a chest behind it. Raise the gate by creating an ice pillar beneath it. Jump to this pillar and get around it so you can reach the chest containing a Knight's Broadsword.
5 Create an ice pillar at the edge of the waterfall and from there, glide to the altar and examine it to receive a Spirit Orb.

Kaya Wan Shrine Tips and Tricks

Practice Perfect Parrying

Deflecting shots.jpg

Perfect Parrying is effective against the charged shots or beams from guardians as they will be deflected back to them and deal a huge amount of damage or destroy them instantly.

To do this, have your shield (any shield works) ready by holding the ZL button then right before an attack hits, press A to deflect it back to the guardian.

The guardians in this shrine do not deal much damage, meaning you don't have to worry much about failing as you practice the timing of your parries.
