Where to find Saas Ko'sah

This is the only Shrine located within Hyrule Castle, which is located within the game's Central region.

It's specifically found in the Castle's Docks. The easiest way to get in is by going to the north, on the cliff overlooking the moat, and gliding south to the castle, with an opening in the rock.

Inside the docks, take out or sprint past any enemies that spot you, then head up the steps to the left, and continue going to the upper level.

There, you'll spot a giant lamp on the right. Light it - the easiest way is to aim an arrow, tip the end into one of the lit torches around you - to make a Shrine emerge in front of you.

Head down, and you'll face one of the many Test of Strength shrines. Completing it will reward you with a Flameblade.
