Step-By-Step Guide To Solve Secret Of The Snowy Peaks

Of course, you know how important the time is in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so make sure it’s 16:00 in-game when you do this. You can also try various things to complete Secret of the Snowy Peaks, but you can also do it in a straightforward fashion to help you progress in the game quicker. Here is a step-by-step guide you would need to defeat this level:

  1. Open your map and spot the ridge between the two mountain peaks. This area is where you can find the cabin.
  1. Once you get there, you have to defeat the enemies in the area, including an Ice Lizalfos, so they wouldn’t get a chance to damage you or the snowballs around you, which could save so much time.
  1. The size of your snowball matters, so you need to choose a medium-sized one. Of course, you can get it from the piles on the ground near the cabin.

  1. After that, you need to head south a few steps from the cabin. The next thing you need to do is look for the altar that’s projecting from the cliff’s edge.
  1. Once you’ve spotted the altar, you have to hold the snowball over your head while standing on the edge of the cliff where the cabin is. You have to make sure that the snowball’s shadow fully overlaps the central portion of the altar as the sun rises in the sky. You will get a hint that you’re doing this part correctly as the shrine will start to change its colors.
  1. When the Secret of the Snowy Peaks’ shrine entirely comes into view, please enter it. Inside, you will need to look for the treasure chest that will give you a Moonlight Scimitar Long Throw. Once you’ve obtained it, speak with Suma Shama, and retrieve your spirit orb, and that’s it!

Top Four Things You Need To Do In Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of Fire

Get one thing clear first: Manga well-wishers can figure out the game’s title looks the same as a manga (Legend Of Zelda) and try seeking the relation. Still, it’s likely nothing but a coincidence!

Open world games are fun, but they can also be tricky as it’s easy to spend a long time exploring the beauty and the vastness of the world map. It’s not a big deal because that’s what open-world games are for, but when you do too much exploring and side missions, you might have a hard time completing important main missions like Breath of the Wild’s Secret of the Snowy Peaks. So, here is an extra guide of essential things you need to do to make you a pro at the game:

Collect Ingredients Every Chance You Get

Any open-world adventure games have a nearly unlimited number of crucial ingredient, and every one of them has important functions. These items are easy to spot as any gamer knows they would be shining near points of interest like a tree, rock, or in the grass. So, you should stop and take them. You have a bottomless inventory for your ingredients, so you can go crazy and experiment with cooking to create the ultimate items you need to help Link.

Obtain Strong Weapons

When you’re at the part of the game allowing you to wander the Great Plateau, you’ll only have wooden poles and clubs to battle off hordes of Bokoblins, which sucks. So, you have to keep an eye out for chests or stronger adversaries to loot from and build your weapons inventory. A decent bow can help you fight off enemies without getting close to them, and you can find one in a treasure chest in the Temple of Time. Of course, the ax and sledgehammer deal more damage, so get them from one of the Shrines on the cliff above the Old Man’s home.

Ride A Horse

Hyrule is a large country to explore, which you should expect from an open-world game. This may excite or bore you as exploring on foot can take a long time. So, the best thing you can do is find a Wild Horse, catch it, and tame it. Wild Horses can be found in enormous fields all across Hyrule, including the areas northwest of the Great Plateau and beyond and the fields near Dueling Peaks stable.

Explore Every Tower 

You can see Resurrection Towers in the distance all around Hyrule. Every region has one, and exploring them will help you reveal unexplored nearby territories on your map data for that specific region. However, it will not automatically add points of interest to your map, so you need to climb to the highest point of each tower you explore to have a good look around and highlight nearby Shrines, stables, and other interesting points on your map.

Be The Best Link You Can Be

Leveling up Link is something that would help you complete more challenging levels in Legend of Zelda: Breath of Fire, especially Secret of the Snowy Peaks. But don’t take too much time in doing it that you forget how beautiful the world-building, characters’ backstory, and the game’s narrative are. You can be a powerful Link, but you still need to know why you’re in this world and what the game is trying to teach you.
