Zelda - Mah Eliya, Secret Stairway in Breath of the Wild DLC 2

How to complete DLC 2 trial Mah Eliya.

Mah Eliya and Secret Stairway is a challenge as part of The Champions' Ballad, which is the main quest in Zelda: Breath of the Wild's second DLC.

It is part of EX Champion Mipha's Song, which you'll tackle halfway through the DLC.

If you're after help for the main game itself, then consult our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough and guide.

Where to find Mah Eliya

The path to the next shrine is far more straightforward than the previous one, and simply requires a few upward swims and some gliding. To start the course off, warp to the Ne'ez Yohma Shrine in the Zora Kingdom, then head across the bridge to the east of the palace.

When you reach Mikau Lake you'll see a flowing portal.

Run through it, equip your Zora Armor and swim upwards through the rings. At the top, glide through the portal then swim up through the next series of portals.

At the top, repeat the process then glide through the final portal. A new shrine will then appear in front of you.

Mah Eliya, Secret Stairway solution

This shrine - Secret Stairway - involves using Cryonis, Stasis and Magnesis to get ready to switch between all three for this challenge. To begin, raise the left-hand rectangular box up with a pillar of ice.

Climb the pillar and the box, then right around to the left and use Magnesis to pull the square box out. Place it at the edge of the left-hand rectangular box. Stand on top of it, then use Magnesis to raise the other rectangular box to the top of the spine running up the wall.

This is when it gets tricky. As soon as you deactivate Magnesis, the box will begin to fall. Quickly switch to Stasis and freeze the box before it reaches the wall of water.

Drop down, switch to Cryonis and place an ice pillar at the top of the wall of water beneath the suspended box. When it falls, it will now be higher than the square box you were standing on.

Thanks to a new update, it's now possible to play Zelda Breath of the Wild in VR. Want help with the main game? Our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough can help complete Divine Beasts Vah Ruta, Vah Rudiana, Vah Medoh and Vah Naboris and more. There's also how to get the Master Sword, Hylian Shield and all Zelda Captured Memories and Great Fairy Fountain locations, while our Shrines locations and Shrine maps hub explains where to find and solve every puzzle room, including dragon locations and Labyrinth solutions. We also have a DLC 1 guide and DLC 2 guide, including all Tingle, Majora's Mask, Phantom, Midna outfit locations.

Climb to the top, then use Magnesis to pull the box on top of the one you're now standing on. Use it to reach the top platform and the Monk waiting for you. Now collect your third and final Mipha Emblem.

Other shrines to complete for EX Champion Mipha's Song are:

If you have completed the above as well as all other EX Champion Song shrines and their bosses, then you can progress to The Divine Trial, the final dungeon in DLC 2.
