The Runakit Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is all about rails in various ways to transport a large ball around the shrine. Here’s how to roll through this Shrine.
Where to find the Runakit Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom
The Runakit Shrine is located in the region of Hyrule Ridge. More specifically it can be found in the highlands between Mount Rhoam and Lindor’s Brow north-west of Ludfo’s Bog. There is a giant hole in the ground just to the southwest. Its coordinates are -2530, 1170, 0178.
How to complete the puzzles for the Runakit Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom
Entering the shrine you will see a ball switch and a locked door to your left. Above you can see a ball in an upper area, the goal of this shrine is to maneuver the ball over to the switch. You can get up to where the ball is by para-gliding over to a pair of ladders and climbing up. The first puzzle is straightforward, all you have to do is use the Ultrahand to put the ball onto the rails, and the ball will glide down to the next area.
The next puzzle is similar to the first however the two rails are spaced too widely apart making it impossible to fit the ball between them. Around this area, you will find 4 small stone cylinders. To solve this puzzle you must create a structure that can be balanced between the two rails and attach the ball to it. In my case, I created a square framework that I placed the ball on top of, but any structure which achieves the same end will do. From there the ball and structure will slide down to the next section.
How to get the optional treasure chest of Runakit Shrine
To the side of this area, you will find a treasure chest on top of a platform, leading up to it are two rails leading up to a ladder. Around you are multiple slabs of stone some of which are flat boards and others are 90-degree angles. The solution to this challenge is to use these parts to get across the rails. There are a wide variety of different structures that can be made but for me, I first used an angled slab to get across the first rail by balancing it atop said rail (the slab does not fall over when you stand on top of it). Next where the two rails are next to each other in front of the ladder lay down a flat slab across the rails. From there simply jump from the starting area to each slab and then to the ladder (the rail itself has collision and can be walked across if necessary).
The next section requires using only a single rail to deliver the ball to the next area. Around you are various stone slabs that come in two shapes, flat boards, and 90-degree angles. To solve this puzzle it will be necessary to construct something which can carry the ball along the rail. While there are potentially several correct answers to this puzzle, I simply created a makeshift hook by connecting an angled slab to a flat slab. I then connected the ball to this, set the hook onto the rail, and sent it sliding down. From there all you have to do is detach the ball place it onto the switch and you are good to go.
