Before Entering Vah Medoh Walkthrough

Buy Cold-Resistant Clothings At Rito Village

Shop for Cold Resistance clothing at Rito Village
Click to Enlarge

In Rito Village, you can buy a set of cold-resistant armor. Cold resistance is essential before and inside Vah Medoh, so prepare as much as possible here. Cold resistance can also be done with cooking, but it'd be better to aginst the cold using the armor rather than the food with a limited duration.

Requires 2150 Rupees To Complete An Armor Set

To buy all the armor, you will need 2150 Rupees, which is a lot of Rupees. If you don't have enough, sell ores or play mini games to earn Rupees. Equipping any two of the three armor is enough to reach the minimum cold resistance, so you don't have to buy three.

Prepare Bow and Arrows For the Flight Range

Flight Range requires Bow arrows

In Flight Range, after speaking with Teba, you will be challenged to shoot the targets of the Rito's training. Bow and arrows are required for this training. You can find 10 arrows where Teba is, but if you're not confident in your skills, prepare more.

Time Slows Down When You Hold the Bow In the Air

The basic combo revolves around the repetition of getting close to the target with an updraft → then shooting an arrow with a bow → adjusting your position with the Paraglider. Holding the Bow in the air reduces the Stamina Wheel, but slows down the time. You have plenty of time to spare, so don't rush and aim for the target.

Use the Paraglider To Refill Stamina

Stamina will be restored when Paraglider is opened while riding an updraft. Keep this mechanism in mind and focus on the shooting without worring.

How To Destroy the 4 cannons In Vah Medoh

How to destroy the 4 cannons in Vah Medoh

If you head up to the sky with Teba, you will need to destroy four of Vah Medoh's cannons, so equip yourself with a Bomb Arrow. We recommend the Falcon Bow, which is good at long-range shooting.

Approach the Cannons On All Sides With the Paraglider

The cannons are located at the four ends of Vah Medoh. It is possible to snipe from a distance, but it is more reliable to get close with the Paraglider before shooting.

The Cannon Can Be Destroyed With Two Bomb Arrows

The cannon can be destroyed with two Bomb Arrow shots. Just use the 20 Bomb Arrows Teba gave you right before the event. Although damage can be done with regular arrows and swords, it is recommended to use a Bomb Arrow.

Click to Enlarge

To activate the Terminal, the first thing you need to do is get the map so that you can control the tilt of Vah Medoh. Once inside Vah Medoh, go straight and get the map.

Defeat Malice With Arrows or Bombs

Touching the Malice (purple objects) at various locations will cause damage. The malice with eyeballs on the tip can be destroyed by arrows or Remote Bombs. Destroy nearby malice with Remote Bombs and distant ones with arrows.

Build A Foothold With Magnesis To Cross The Other Side

Make a scaffold in Magnesis and cross to the other side.
Click to Enlarge

The easiest way to cross to the other side is to move footholds with the Magnesis. Move the boards with the Magnesis so that Link can proceed and cross to the other side.

Note That There Is One Guardian

Note that there is a Guardian with Spear at the end of the path you cross. The HP is not that high, if you have Stasis +, you can use it to take him down safely.

Steps To Activate Vah Medoh Terminal 1

1Go to the lower floor of the right wing and take the gondola.
*If no gondola is available, tilt Vah Medoh to pull the gondola in.
2Shoot Malice in the eye with an arrow and defeat him.
3Tilt Vah Medoh down with the gondola.
4Activate the Terminal at the end of it.

Go To the Lower Floor of the Right Wing and Get On the Gondola

2Activate the switch to let the wind out.
3Tilt Vah Medoh down and move the hammer to the edge.
4Tilt Vah Medoh upward while holding the propeller in place with the Magnesis.
5If successful, activate the terminal at the end of the opened door.

Step 3 to 5 above can be skipped by using Stasis. With the wing of Vah Medoh being horizontal, open the door by pulling the propeller with Magnesis. Then hit the switch with Stasis repeatedly till you can press it.

Note that this method reduces the durability of the weapon.

Activate the Switch To Let Wind Out

Click to Enlarge

Here, you need to use something like a hammer as a weight to press the orange glowing switch. If the hammer is not placed exactly on the right position, the weight will not be enough to activate the switch, so first tilt Vah Medoh down and bring the hammer to the edge.

Tilt Vah Medoh Up While Holding the Propeller In Place With the Magnesis

Activate the Switch To Generate Wind

Activate The Switch To Generate Wind
Click to Enlarge

Activate the switch to generate wind. At the same time, please also defeat Malice blocking the terminal. Since enemies will spring up from this Malice's eyeballs, it'd be better to destroy it with arrows as soon as possible.

Fly With the Paraglider Above the Switch

Fly on a Paraglider from the high ground above the switch!

Use the Paraglider from the foothold above the switch and ride the wind to the terminal. At this point, it is easier if Vah Medoh is horizontal, not tilted.
