Tears of the Kingdom – How To Get The Shrine Sensor In TotK

Shrine bright like a diamond.

If you’re searching far and wide for new Shrines to conquer in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you may be hoping that a particular piece of tech makes a return from Breath of the Wild. The Shrine Sensor is one of the most valuable pieces of inventory that you can claim, and the faster you can grab it, the faster you can make your way throughout the lands of Hyrule on your journey to become stronger than ever imagined. However, with TotK straying a bit from the previous game in the series, you may be wondering where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do to get this essential add-on.

What Does The Shrine Sensor Do In Tears Of The Kingdom

If you’ve been traveling the world of Hyrule either by foot or on the back of your favorite steed, you’ve likely encountered plenty of Shrines. Completing these puzzles will give you Blessings, which you can use to upgrade your health and stamina by visiting the Statues of the Goddesses.

The Shrine Sensor will start to make noise as you approach an undiscovered shrine, giving you the chance to get as powerful as possible before facing off against the big bads that are awaiting you on your journey.

Where To Get Shrine Sensor In Tears of the Kingdom

Before you’re able to claim the Shrine Sensor for your own, you’ll need to complete a few quests for Robbie and Josha at Lookout Landing, coordinates (-0254, 0142, 0020) including:

  • Camera Works in the Depths
  • A Mystery in the Depths

After completing the A Mystery In The Depths side-quest, you’ll unlock your final Ultrahand Power, which is needed to help Robbie get his hot air balloon back in business. Speak to Robbie outside, and he’ll mention that he can finally return to the Hateno Village Tech Lab and unlock the pure potential of your Purah Pad. You’ll just need to find out where that is.

Once you have found Hateno Village, you’ll just need to find out where the Hateno Village Tech Lab is hiding. If you’re in the center of town, head up toward the Stable and keep running up that hill. While you may not be making a deal with God, you’ll be getting something rather important for the journey ahead.

You’ll find the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab located at coordinates (3780, -2111, 0250), the spot where you first met Purah in Breath of the Wild. Head inside, and Robbie will ask to take a look at your Purah Pad and install the Shine Sensor onto it. You’ll also get the chance to run through a few other quests to unlock more equipment for your pad, including:

  • Hero’s Path
  • Travel Medallion
  • Sensor +

All of these are invaluable pieces of equipment to have in your inventory, so make sure that you’re ready to jump into the world of Hyrule once again. If you’re a completionist, you’ll also be happy to know that you can purchase portions of the Compendium directly at this location for 100 Rupees each. Learn how to do the item duplication glitch if you need to get more pages than you bargained for.
