Musanokir Shrine Puzzle Solution – Swing to Hit

To solve the Musanokir Shrine, you will have to work with balls and chains to swing heavy cubes and hit targets that will open gates.

For the first obstacle, you need to create a bridge to cross the gap. Simply grab the heavy cube from the other side and attach it to the ball that is on the end of the board. Then grab the cube again and place it as far as you can on the other side so that the bridge stays level. Try to keep the cube on the floor so that it will not make the bridge slack as it falls down.

For the second obstacle, grab and detach the cube from earlier and attach it to the hanging ball and chain. Grab the cube again, pull it back, and let it swing so that it hits the target on the wall. You can then go to the next chamber once the gate has been opened.

Before doing the third obstacle, consider getting the chest on the platform on the wall by creating a bridge out of the log and the cube, then attaching them to the slab on the rail. Once you’re on the slab, you can just jump and glide to the chest, which contains a Large Zonai Charge.

For the final obstacle, attach the cube to the hanging ball, then attach the log in front of the slab so that it points towards the target. Grab the cube backwards, then let it go. Its swing will make the slab move forward and eventually hit the target with the log. You can then go to the statues in the next room to claim your Light of Blessing and complete the shrine.
