Quest Start Kaneli, elder of Rito Village, wants you to help a local soldier named Teba. You offered your assistance, but first you must find the soldier.

Teba's wife Saki may know where he is. Ask around Rito Village to gather more information.
1st Update You found Saki and asked where Teba went. It sounds like he headed for the Flight Range.

Search the Flight Range for Teba.
2nd Update You found Teba at the Flight Range, but he has no intention of returning to the village before Divine Beast Medoh has been appeased.

He intends to appease the Divine Beast himself. You had better help him out.
3rd Update Teba won't let you anywhere near Divine Beast Vah Medoh unless you can at least hit the targets at the Flight Range.

If you catch an updraft with your paraglider, it'll carry you high into the sky. Use this technique to destroy five targets with arrows within the time limit to prove yourself to Teba.
4th Update You proved your mettle by hitting the targets at the Flight Range.

When it comes time to battle DIvine Beast Vah Medoh, Teba will draw the focus of its attacks so you can focus on destroying its cannons.

Teba will carry you into the sky where Divine Beast Medoh awaits.
5th Update The battle with Divine Beast Vah Medoh has begun!

Use the paraglider to launch into the air for a good vantage point, and then take out all the cannons with your bomb arrows.

But be careful—if you get too close, you'll run into the Divine Beast's barrier!
6th Update You destroyed all of the Divine Beast Vah Medoh's cannons and landed on its back, but Teba suffered injuries and had to retreat.

You must finish what you both started. Enter Divine Beast Vah Medoh on your own to stop it once and for all!
7th Update You defeated Windblight Ganon, which had infested the insides of Divine Beast Vah Medoh.

The Divine Beast has been enshrined at the highest point of Rito Village, and moreover, it looks like Teba was able to safely return to Rito Village.

Your efforts have earned you the power of the Champion Revali, Revali's Gale.
