Sifumim Shrine is the odd one out of all other shrines in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The reason behind this is that when you enter that shrine against a full “Construct” Robotic Army, you have no equipment at all. It is a real challenge defeating opponents with standard wooden shields and swords but that is what the “Proving Ground: Flow” trial is all about.
Sifumim Shrine Location
Sifumim Shrine is located in the southeast region of the map, near East Necluda and beside Necluda Sea to be precise. The exact coordinates for the shrine’s location are 2823, -3266, 0078. For further clearance, an image of the location on the map will be shown below.
Sifumim Shrine – Proving Grounds: Flow Walkthrough
Once you enter the shrine, all your equipment, armor, and items including food, and healing stuff will vanish (they will be given back to you when you finish the trial). You will be left with Long Stick, Old Wooden Sheild, and Wooden Stick which honestly are pretty much useless. The battle will take place above the water, and most of the construct army will be standing up on the rafts. Being weak to water the construct bots will instantly destroy as soon as they touch the water surface. You can hit them with your weapon to knock them off the walls, or rafts or simply use Ultrahand to move the surface below them. Most of the enemies will be crushed using the strategy. Tip: After eliminating constructs above the rafts wait for their electric bombs to explode in the water otherwise, you will lose too many hearts.
For the next phase to begin, which is fighting the final Construct machine, ascend up the platforms and fuse your equipped weapon with Spiked Iron Ball. After the fusion, the boss will be waiting for you just near it, the damage output with the new weapon will be enough to beat it. Even this final Construct is weak to water, so you can also just knock him off the wall after getting him to the edge to complete the trial saving a lot of time.
After clearing the trial, the equipment will be returned to Link and a chest will be ready to open that includes Captain II Reaper, a rare weapon. Lastly after officially completing the shrine, you will attain the Light of Blessing with it.
