Dako Tah - Electric Path

Shrine Dako Tah Breath of the WildLocation: Gerudo Desert, at the Great Cliffs
Required: -. Linked to the "The Eye of the Sandstorm" quest
Go ahead, go right and shoot an arrow at the Guardian. Go ahead, notice the light bulb on your left, then climb on the moving platform. While standing on the platform, use Magnesis on the electrical source, then make it slide along the cable to be able to go back to the other side. Now lift the electrical cube, climb the slope and stand near the bulb to activate another platform. Halfway up, jump to the chest which contains a Moonlight Scimitar, then go back onto the platform, and go ahead into another room. Get rid of the two Guardians, pick up their materials, then open the chest for an Ancient Core. Use Magnesis on the magnetic block and push it as much as you can, then go get the electrical cube, go ahead, climb the slope on the left, go on the lift, then get off and place the cube on the pedestal, which will send electricity through the chains and activate another platform. Wait for this platform to be right on your left, then climb on it, and when it stops for a bit, use Magnesis to push the magnetic block as far as you can, then you end up in front of the monk's altar. To open the chest nearby, stay on the platform, use Magnesis again and quickly move the cube to the left, then when you're close to the chest, jump and open it for a Radiant Shield. Then, wait for the platform to come back, go down in front of the altar, then receive another Spirit Orb.

Then, get close to the boulder linked to a chain and place it (without getting zapped) near the bulb, which activates a lift. Get on it then get rid of the three Guardians. Use Magnesis on the electric ball, go between the three bulbs, then place the ball on an elevated pedestal on the right, which opens a path.

Rotate the mechanism so it blows towards the southwest, then climb the slope on the left and use the wind to reach the chest containing a Golden Claymore. Go back near the terminal, use Magnesis to grab the cube and place it on the switch on the right, which raises one of the windmills. Go back to the terminal again and if the three windmills are not on the move, rotate the mechanism so they do. Climb the slope on the left, glide to the other switch and stay on it so all the windmills are activated at the same time. The bars are lifted but then fall back down. So use Stasis to freeze the switch and run to the bars.
In the next room, climb the slope, shoot a Fire Arrow at the planks higher which are holding a chest, then pick up a Gerudo Spear inside. Place the chest on the switch, which will lower one of the pillars, then go back to the slope and look at the terminal.

Start by climbing the steps to the right, go through the vertical flames, then avoid the rotating flames. Place the cube near the horizontal flames, freeze it, then hit it twice to make it slide under these flames. Go ahead, get it back, then place it in front of the flames behind the bars. Again, freeze it and hit it twice to make it go over the lava. Then, jump on the magnetic block, and on the other side, then grab it and place it in front of the horizontal flames to stop them. Grab the ice cube back, go past the magnetic block and place the cube in the corner. There is a chest behind the vertical flames behind you. Grab the magnetic block, place it on the flames the most to your right, glide to the block and jump right behind it to find a Frostblade inside the chest, then jump below and go back to the ice cube thanks to the ladder. Get it back, place it in front of the vertical flames, freeze it, then hit it twice so it harmlessly goes through them! Then, grab the block and place it above you to go through these flames.
