It’s been a while since I have played Legend of Zelda as I didn’t have time to play a lot of video games over the last year. But now that my massive work project is done, I decided to pick back up Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Last time I played, I left off on the approach to Divine Beast Vah Medoh which is the bird Divine Beast over the Rito Village. Medoh has been calm for 100 years until Link woke back up, similar to the other Divine Beasts.
Revali was the Rito champion who was in charge of Vah Medoh, but fell to Windblight Ganon. Since then Vah Medoh has been shooting anyone that flies too high with cannons. In order to face Medoh, you will need snow protection gear (Snowquill Armor) to prevent Link from freezing to death. This armor can be purchased in Rito Village:
- Snowquill tunic for 600 rupees
- Snowquill trousers for 550 rupees
- Snowquill headdress for 1,000 rupees
Upgrading the gear will make it more powerful and wearing all of them together will grant you a set bonus to increase your cold resistance. This can be done at the Great Fairy near Kakariko Village with red ChuChu jelly.
To get the actual quest to deal with Vah Medoh, you need to talk to the Rito chief, Kaneli, then talking to Saki (next door) to find where Teba is located. You’ll need to use your paraglider to head over to the Flight Range. After completing his quest of hitting five targets in the range within three minutes, you’ll receive 20 bomb arrows and the falcon bow. From here you’ll head up together to Vah Medoh. As mentioned, Medoh’s defenses are cannons that you’ll have to knock out using the bomb arrows. Each cannon takes two direct hits with the Falcon Bow. If you have a more powerful bow, you might be able to take it out in one. Teda was hit during the approach so the Divine Beast dungeon is up to you alone to defeat.
Inside of Medoh there are 5 terminals and 5 chests. In order to reach these you’ll need to make use of the controls that have three points of movement: level (center), curled up (high) and curled down (low). There aren’t a lot of monsters to fight but there a few eyeballs to shoot out as you navigate around Medoh. Other than the controls, you’ll need to make use of the Round Bomb and Magnesis runes to solve the puzzles.
Once you’ve found all of the terminals head to the back of Medoh and activate the main terminal, which will start the fight against Windblight Ganon. I would stack up with bomb arrows and food beforehand. In the two different stages, make sure of bomb arrows and updrafts to hit Windblight Ganon in the eye. If you can’t see Windblight Ganon, drop to the ground and run to the nearest updraft. Circle it until you find him, and then take the updraft to try again. Once you defeat Windblight Ganon, and you’ll get a heart container. You’ll also get Revali’s Gale, which creates an upward draft on demand. Hold down X to charge your jump.
Interact with the terminal to leave then talk to Kaneli, where you’ll receive the Great Eagle Bow. If this ever breaks, Harth will repair if with a swallow bow, five bundles of wood and a diamond. You can get a swallow bow at Harth’s house.
What did you think of Windblight Ganon compared to the other Divine Beasts?
