Location of the In-Isa Shrine in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

In-Isa Shrine is located on the western side of the Great Sky Island, southwest of the Temple of Time, in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The precise coordinates of the shrine are (0027, -1503, 1408).

However, the route you take to reach In-Isa Shrine may differ depending on whether it is the first or second shrine you visit after completing Ukouh Shrine.

If you completed the Gutanbac Shrine first, you will need to return to the snowy mountain. This can be easily accomplished by using Ascend on the hollow tree not far from the Gutanbac Shrine and using the gliders on the other side of the tree to fly back to the area outside the Temple of Time. You will also find the Archaic Warm Greaves inside this tree.

Our journey to In-Isa Shrine began at the top of the hill south of Ukouh Shrine where, after climbing some stairs, we found a railing leading to the next section of the Great Sky Island.

Similar to the Ukouh Shrine challenge, you must use the nearby boards and hooks to create a platform that will transport you safely to the next section of the island.

Once there, you will see that the bridge you need to cross has been broken, so if you want to get to the other side, you will have to build your own using Ultrahand. We did this by joining four logs, two by two horizontally, and then placing them over the gap.

There are several logs around this area that you can experiment with, and if you need more, you can cut down some of the trees as well. Next to the Zonai Construct, one of the many you’ll find on this path that will teach you some of the game’s mechanics, you’ll find a Stone Ax that will help you in this task.

After building your own bridge and reaching the other side, you will need to head east and cross another bridge that is not broken. As you go down this path, you will pass a Zonai Contrust who has a set of 10 arrows and an old wooden bow next to him so you can grab it.

From this Zonai construct, you must follow the river to the south; on your journey you may find a construct ready to give you a quick cooking lesson and three soldier constructs whose defeat will unlock a chest containing an opal.

Finally, you will find yourself on the edge of a cliff overlooking a lake where the sanctuary is located on the other side. From this point, you will need to head west until you reach another railing.

Here you will need to use the logs, hooks, and Ultrahand to create another platform to get through the railing. We recommend cutting down a tree to make a log, so you’ll have enough space to transport the nearby Korok to his friend on the next island. If you carry the Korok with you, it’s a good idea to attach two hooks.

When you’re ready, hook your rig to the railing, jump off, and enjoy the view as you soar through the sky.

Once you’re on the next small island, take the Korok to his friend if you brought them with you. You will get two Korok Seeds for doing so.

Whether you’ve transported the Korok or not, you’ll need to grab the sail off the ground with Ultrahand and secure it to the side of your platform. Once she’s securely attached, move the platform to the next railing before jumping over it.

You will now find yourself on the shore of the lake, but before you can start sailing, you will need to remove the hooks from your platform and place the sail upright on it. When it’s ready, place the raft in the water and hop on it. If the wind changes direction while you’re sailing, simply use the Ultrahand to move the sail.

When you reach the other side of the lake, follow the path to find some stairs that will take you to the In-Isa Shrine. Along the way, you will face a couple of Chuchus and a Soldier Construct.

Solution of the In-Isa Shrine in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

The Fuse ability will be unlocked when you enter the In-Isa Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Fuse allows you to fuse various materials and objects with weapons, shields, and arrows. Doing so will make the weapon more powerful, increase its durability, and sometimes grant it useful power. The Shrine Puzzle Skill Matching will help you familiarize yourself with its power.

The first thing you will find in the In-Isa Shrine will be a Rusty Claymore. We highly recommend acquiring this weapon as, for the Great Sky Island starting area, it is quite a powerful weapon.

Next, you need to fuse one of the nearby rocks with Rusty Claymore or another weapon with a rock. Use your new weapon to break through the stone wall.

In the next room, you will find a chest containing five arrows on top of the pillar in the upper left corner. After opening it, you’ll want to head to the right, where you can collect fire fruit, five arrows, and an old wooden bow.

Next, fuse a Fire Fruit with an arrow and shoot the leaves surrounding the chest on the far right wall near the Fire Fruit bushes. This chest contains a small key and you must now return to the area after the breakable wall where you will find a door to unlock.

Follow the path in this new room and climb the ladder to encounter a soldier construct that also has the power to fuse weapons. There are several ways to defeat this construct, including fusing new weapons using the spikes on the platform to the left of the room and setting fire to the leaves on the floor with more arrows fused with fire fruits. Just keep in mind that this construct can shoot arrows!

After defeating the construct, destroy the stone wall with your rock-fused weapon, or if it has been destroyed, fuse one of the nearby stones with a new weapon. This will take you to the end of the shrine, so interact with the green circle to collect your Blessing Light.

Don’t forget to get the Archaic Robe as you are not far from its location.

You must now visit the Gutanbac Shrine to Ascend or, if you have already obtained this ability, return to the Temple of Time to complete The Shut Door quest. You’ll also find times when you need to undo something you’ve merged. To help you with that, check out our guide on how to undo the merge in TOTK.
