Zelda: Breath of the Wild is filled with tons of easter eggs lurking in the large world of Hyrule. In line with this, there is actually a secret in the first four shrines that Link visits after he wakes up.
Another Easter Egg In Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
For those who have already explored a fair share of Hyrule should have already come across a few easter eggs alluding to major points in the franchise. However, there is actually one that most players might have missed despite being in plain sight. Redditor pkbronsonb has recently made a surprising discovery regarding the first four Sheikah monks that Link encounters in the game.
If fans pay close attention, they will see the monks are holding their hands in a way that alludes to the Triforce. They are making a triangle shape and each monk has positioned their hands on the top, lower left and lower right. Finally, one monk has his hand in the shape of an inverted triangle to symbolize the empty middle of the Triforce.
For those unfamiliar, "The Golden Power" plays a major role in every game of the franchise as both Zelda and Link each have a part of it. Players who have advanced far into the game or have been unlocking memories will discover the princess actually using her powers.
The Many Shrines And Their Rewards
Shrines, on the other hand, are optional puzzle-like rooms scattered across the world for players to discover, as per Eurogamer. Link earns his Runes early on by undertaking the first four Shrines and eventually earns Spirit Orbs, which he could trade in for an extra heart or stamina wheel. Since this installment lacks heart pieces, four spirit orbs are required for an upgrade.
Once the player manages to gather enough, they can head to the nearest Goddess Statue found in towns or the Temple of Time. Incidentally, they can also transfer hearts to stamina or vice versa by paying a 20 Rupee fee to a special statue at Hateno Village. Those who want to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild can get a copy for the Wii U or Nintendo Switch.
