Before infiltrating Vah Naboris, he will strike lightning onto Link. When a purple ring appears around Link, it is a signal that lightning is about to strike, so ride your Sand Seal to get inside Riju's barrier to prevent damage.

Better to Slow Down When Entering the Barrier

Riju is slower than Link, so she will almost certainly be behind him after dashing to get close enough to hit Vah Naboris with the Bomb Arrow. Therefore, after firing the arrow, slow down and wait for Riju to arrive. Then move the stick forward to slightly adjust your position to stay within the barrier.

Get Off the Sand Seal If You Are Not Good At Adjusting the Position

Treasure Chest Hanging On A String
Click to Enlarge

It'd be easier to get the hanging treasure chest using the Stasis. First, stop the treasure chest with the Stasis, and then cut the string with a bow. The chest will remain suspended in the air until the effect duration of Stasis ends, so use the Magnesis to get the chest when the effect ends.

Another Way Is To Swing the Treasure Chest Like A Pendulum To Cut the String

Grab it with the Magnesis at first, then raise it as high as you can and release it to make it swing like a pendulum. If you cut the string when the treasure chest comes to the foothold, the treasure chest will fly to the foothold. However, this way is very difficult because the angle, strength, and timing of the swing are very critical.
