The Legend of Zelda: TOTK Mayaumekis Shrine Guide & Solution

Mayaumekis Shrine is a skyward shrine The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and you can solve it easily with our guide! Found on the Rising Island Chain, you will most likely find this shrine when completing the main quest “Tulin of Rito Village.” While you can activate this shrine and come back after you finish the quest, Mayaumekis Shrine can be a quick detour with our guide. Here’s what you need to know to solve “Downward Force,” the puzzle of Mayaumekis Shrine.

How to Complete Mayaumekis Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Where to find Mayaumekis Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: TOTK.

If you aren’t there yet, you can find Mayaumekis Shrine at the coordinates (-2947, 3051, 0897) in the sky. You’ll come across it pretty naturally as you progress through the main storyline of “Tulin of Rito Village.”

How to get in the entrance of Mayaumekis Shrine in Zelda TOTK.

When you walk into the shrine, you’ll be greeted with a closed gate. To the right of this gate, you can see a crystal through the bars. Shoot an arrow through a gap in the bars to activate it, and open the gate.

In the next room, you’ll see many ships, all resembling the one that Tulin mentions is from the Song of the Stormwind Ark. Climb the stairs straight in front of you, and dispose of the Construct in front of you with your weapon of choice. Then, jump on the ship directly in front of you to shoot up to the next level of the shrine.

Jump on the other ship that’s now in front of you, and glide over to the ship sailing in a circle, taking care to make a soft landing. This ship will give you the extra boost you need to make it to the next platform.

From this platform, jump on the ship directly in front of you. As you shoot up, look to your right to find another crystal behind a grate, just like the one from the very beginning of the shrine. Shoot this crystal to open a grate that formerly blocked off your ascent to the shrine’s reward. Use the ship to the right of the one you just jumped off of to rise up and claim your reward!

How to Get the Chest in the Shrine

To get this chest, you’ll want to use the same ship you jumped off of to activate the crystal, but glide to the left instead of the right. It’s a tough glide, but if you get it right, Link will land on the edge of the chest’s platform and climb up to claim your treasure: a bundle of 10 arrows.

That’s it for our Mayaumekis Shrine guide! Check out our guide on TOTK‘s Gatakis Shrine to complete a shrine near Rito Village once you return to the surface.
