Divine Beast Vah Medoh Quest Guide

How to Beat Windblight Ganon

The Windblight Ganon fight has two phases, with its attack patterns changing after it reaches 50% HP.

Use the wind turbines on Vah Medoh's back to fly high and get slow-motion shots at the boss. Hide behind pillars to avoid the lasers and ignore the turrets Windblight Ganon summon in the second phase, focusing your attacks on the boss itself. It teleports around a lot, so we recommend using your bow and aiming for its eye, unleashing a flurry of blows once it's stunned!

Divine Beast Vah Medoh Tips and Tricks

Save Your Bomb Arrows

Collect and save the Bomb Arrows you get from Treasure Chests and from Teba, because these deal heavy damage to Windblight Ganon.

Equip the Falcon Bow!

Bows are crucial to winning the fight against Windblight Ganon. Make sure you equip the Falcon Bow that you can get from Teba after passing his test. It has a longe range, so you can target Ganon's eye even from afar.

Stock Up on Food and Elixirs

Make sure to cook food and elixirs to gain an advantage in battle. If you have a small number of hearts, consider packing defense-boosting food, or getting sleeping on a Rito-down bed at Swallow's Roost to get extra temporary hearts and stamina.

You are Free to Leave the Area Anytime

During your stay in Vah Medoh, you can leave and come back anytime, as you can fast-travel to it. Take note that every time you leave, you will always arrive at the Travel Gate. Press the minus button (-) to open up the map, and press X to leave the area.

If you find yourself in a tough situation against Windblight Ganon, you can retreat and prepare for your return.

Get Everything Before You Leave for Good

After defeating Windblight Ganon, and using the main terminal to leave, you cannot come back inside the Divine Beast anymore, so if you want to get all the chests, do so before leaving for good. Check the next section for locations of all the Treasure Chests in Divine Beast Vah Medoh.
