Welcome to our comprehensive guide for the Lightning Temple in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
In this guide, we’ll provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to conquer the Lightning Temple, obtain Riju as your companion, and defeat the formidable Queen Gibdo. Prepare yourself for an electrifying adventure!
Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom – Lightning Temple:
What You Need to Know Before Starting the Lightning Temple:
Before venturing into the Lightning Temple, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Similar to other temples, the Lightning Temple features a central teleport point, allowing you to freely enter and exit the temple at your convenience. However, it is advisable to stock up on healing food before entering.
Additionally, we recommend bringing an ample supply of arrows and elemental fruit or weapons. As you may have encountered in previous parts of the quest, Gibdos are weak against elemental attacks. So, be sure to bring your preferred elemental fruit to effectively combat them.
Now that you’re prepared, let’s delve into the Lightning Temple and uncover its secrets!
How to Get to the Lightning Temple:
To reach the Lightning Temple, you must first make your way to Gerudo Town and complete the “Riju of Gerudo Town” quest. This quest involves a large-scale fight and unraveling mysteries within a sandstorm. Once you’ve completed this quest, you’ll be ready to proceed to the Lightning Temple.
Lightning Temple Chests:
Throughout your journey in the Lightning Temple, you’ll come across several chests containing valuable items. Here’s a list of the chests you’ll encounter:
- Flame emitter capsule
- Large Zonai charge
- Mighty construct bow
Fighting Queen Gibdo:
Prepare yourself for a boss fight against Queen Gibdo. Don’t worry; she won’t go down easily. Utilize Riju’s charged-up electricity to supplement your arrows and weaken her. Keep in mind that if Riju gets hit by one of Queen Gibdo’s tornados, her charge will be interrupted. Take advantage of Riju’s attacks when she’s ready to fight, and be quick to shoot your arrows. It took us two hits with Riju’s electricity to make Queen Gibdo retreat temporarily.
Entering the Lightning Temple:
To enter the Lightning Temple, use Riju’s electricity to remove the new pink blob blocking the entrance. Don’t fret; there’s no boss lurking behind this obstacle. Before proceeding, use Riju’s electricity on the Gibdo nests outside, but make sure they are dark pink and pulsing before striking them. Otherwise, your attacks won’t have any effect. Once you’ve cleared the nests, pluck the treasure chest out of the sand pile on the right to acquire a flame-emitter capsule.
In the room, you’ll spot a Korok-frond guster on the wall, placed in a torch holder. Use it to blow away the sand piles scattered throughout the room. Keep the guster with you as it will prove helpful in various sections of the temple.
After clearing the sand pile in the middle of the room, you’ll discover a switch that opens the door leading deeper into the temple. Grab a torch from the wall and light it using the nearby torch posts. Although using a torch is not necessary, it adds to the ambiance of the temple.
Exploring the Lightning Temple:
As you progress through the Lightning Temple, follow these steps to navigate its chambers:
- In the room with two bridges over pits, jump into the second pit. Engage in a battle with a Gibdo, and your efforts will be rewarded with a large Zonai charge found inside a chest. Ascend back up the bridge and continue onward.
- Use Ultrahand on the bricks directly in front of you to create a bridge leading to the next area. Cross the newly formed bridge and proceed with caution.
In the next chamber, you’ll encounter a series of electrified platforms. To safely navigate this area, equip your rubber boots to avoid taking damage from the electrical currents. Use the Korok-frond guster to clear away the sand piles obstructing your path and reveal hidden switches. Step on the switches to deactivate the electric currents temporarily, allowing you to progress to the next platform.
Continue onward, and you’ll find yourself in a room with rotating electric orbs. These orbs emit lightning bolts when they make contact with each other or any conductive surface. To advance through this room, use the guster to blow the orbs away from your path temporarily. Quickly move past them while they are repositioning, making sure to time your movements carefully.
In the subsequent chamber, you’ll come across a puzzle involving movable metal blocks and electric barriers. Utilize the guster to blow away the sand piles and reveal the blocks. Push the blocks strategically to create a path that avoids the electric barriers and leads you to the other side of the room. Be patient and observant, as the solution may require some trial and error.
As you progress deeper into the Lightning Temple, you’ll encounter more challenging puzzles, intense battles, and hidden treasures. Remember to use Riju’s electricity to your advantage, both in combat and for solving environmental puzzles. Explore every nook and cranny of the temple to discover additional chests containing valuable items and upgrades.
Once you’ve successfully overcome the obstacles and trials within the Lightning Temple, you’ll reach the heart of the temple, where Queen Gibdo awaits. Prepare yourself for a thrilling showdown and put all your skills to the test to emerge victorious.
With this guide, you’re now equipped with the knowledge to conquer the Lightning Temple in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Good luck on your adventure, and may the power of lightning be with you!
