Orochium Shrine Puzzle Solution and Walkthrough

To solve the Orochium Shrine, you will need to recover the small ball that unlocks the gate to the statues.

First, take the path on the left and take out the enemy patrol. Then, use Ascend to climb up the pillars on the side of the wall. Up top, crouch down to crawl underneath the gap on the wall then clear out the enemies. There is a chest on the side that contains arrows.

Use Ultrahand to open the doors to see the laser trap and crouch down. Be prepared to clear out the enemies up ahead; it’s best to lure them close first to avoid taking all of them at once.

Once the enemies have been cleared, intentionally trip the laser to open the trap door below you.

Walk through the corridor and avoid any of the lasers until you reach the end. Use Ascend to go up and open the chest to get a Small Key.

Make your way back to the small room near the lasers you tripped to retrieve the small ball. Carry the ball and ride the lift on the side of the room.

Once you get to the top, place the ball on the hole to open the nearby gate where you can get a glider. Make sure to attach the ball on the glider first before setting the glider on the rails.

Take the glider down to the starting area and put the ball on the hole to open the gate. Head towards the statues to get your Light of Blessing and complete the shrine.
