Zelda - Myahm Agana and Myahm Agana Apparatus trial solution in Breath of the Wild

How to beat the Hateno trial.

Myahm Agana is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The challenge inside, named the Myahm Agana Apparatus trial, is a puzzle that has you rotate a platform with walls on it in order to direct a ball onto a ramp. Get it right, and you can walk out a success.

If you need help finding and solving other Shrines, our Shrine location maps page can help, while our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough and guide covers other aspects of the game.

Where to find Myahm Agana

The Myahm Agana shrine is located within the Hateno region, specifically inside Hateno Village, just east of the Hateno Village map marker. To get there, head due east from the Hateno Tower.

There's no puzzle to solve here in order to access the shrine, so simply dive in when you're ready.

Myahm Agana and Myahm Agana Apparatus trial solution

As with most trials, this one requires you to perform one action for the solution, and another to access a chest. First, the chest: start by heading to the console and using the gyroscopic functions of your controller, be it Wii U gamepad or Switch controller, to rotate the platform.

To get the chest, turn the platform until the part which is jutting out is pointing towards the ramp on the far side, and, importantly, is lower than that ramp so that you can glide down onto it.

Head to the ramp, jump and glide onto the platform, and navigate through the maze to the chest. To return to your starting position, get to the highest side of the platform and glide down and around off there, to the low point of the ramp by the ball's socket.

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.

Once there, head back round to the control panel and now start lining up the platform to get the ball over to the ramp.

This is actually easier than it looks, thanks to a possible short cut: turn the platform so that the jutting out part is pointing towards the platform, as before. From there, the ball will automatically drop into the section that it rolls off from directly - saving you a load of time navigating it through the maze with motion controls.

You'll need to tild the ramp down towards the ramp first to get the ball rolling, then, as it nears the edge of the jutting platform, quickly flip it upwards to give it a little kick up in the air, so it goes onto the platform.

From there, the ball should roll down nice and easy into the socket, and job done! The trial is complete.
