Mezza Lo Shrine / Ancient Trifecta / The Crowned Beast – BotW

The Mezza Lo Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the lesser known shrines. It is completely unrelated to the main quests and more commonly completed either after the completion of the game or when searching for shrines for spirit orbs. Here’s how to complete it!

The Crowned Beast Shrine Quest

The Crowned Beast Shrine Quest is located north-east of Kakariko Village and North of the Lanayru Promenade and therefore north of the Dow Na’eh Shrine inside. By going to the location of the shrine shown on the map, you will find Kass – a Rito musician – who tells you through song of the Ancient Shrine.

Kass, The Crowned Beast Shrine Quest.

The, “Beast that wears a crown of bone,” is a Stag and there are plenty of them nearby. To ride one, I recommend gliding down to them from a high rock onto its back. Once you’ve landed on one, you need to spam – hit repeatedly – the L button in order to calm and temporarily tame the Stag.

Once you have the Stag tamed, ride it back over to Kass and, “Mount the beast upon its throne.” Simply ride the Stag onto the Sheikah Pedestal which Kass is standing next to – this will unlock the shrine.


Upon entering the Shrine, you will see almost all of it. The Shrine consists of four platforms with a central column. To begin, walk up the ramp to the right and use magnesis on the metallic cube sitting on the platform in the corner and move it to the ground. This will allow the laser in the corner to hit the crystal you should be standing next to. When the crystal is hit by anything, it moves a moving platform which traverses the shrine between the four outer areas.

Hit the Crystal enough times so the moving platform comes to you – stand on it. From anywhere in the shrine you can use Stasis on the laser in the corner, when you release the stasis lock or the time runs out, the laser will resume and hit the crystal, moving the platform.

Use Stasis on the laser to move the platform over to the area with the chest. Inside the chest is a Thunderblade which I recommend acquiring – it is a useful weapon. Stand on the moving platform again and magnesis the metal chest over to the next area (the one with the Sheikah Button).

Stasis the Laser again whilst standing on the moving platform so you reach the area with the Button. Magnesis and move the chest onto the Button, this will open the door to the Monk. Use Stasis on the Laser one last time to reach the Monk and obtain this shrine’s spirit orb!
