The addition of shrines to Breath of the Wild was one of the biggest departures from the standard Zelda formula in the game. BotW made the shrines a very prominent feature in the game, with 120 to locate throughout Hyrule. Some of the shrines are out in the open in plain sight, while others require quite a bit of exploration and puzzle solving to find. YouTuber ZeldaMaster has compiled a list of his top five Sheikah shrines to find in BotW. ZeldaMaster’s list includes a labyrinth, a shrine quest that explores the saga between the Sheikah and the Yuga, one of Kass’s ancient songs, a Spring, and my own personal favorite shrine to locate, the one on Eventide Island. ZeldaMaster also includes his honorable mentions before revealing his top shrine to find.
Although I don’t agree with all the shrines on his list, ZeldaMaster’s ranking of his top five shrines to find showcases the great variety of the shrines in Breath of the Wild. You can check out his video below, or click here to view it on Youtube.
