  1. After climbing some hills, you will reach Uasnoj Lightroot.
  2. Activate the lightroot which will provide light around the area to increase your visibility.
  3. Move North from this lightroot, following the trials of statues on your sides.
  4. Eventually, you must reach the depths under the Zora’s Domain mountains, where you will come across another Lightroot known as Unioj.
  5. I also recommend another alternative and quicker route via the South Akkala Plains Chasm located in the South Akkala Plains.
  6. You can navigate to the Unioj Lightroom by jumping through the Chasm.

Fighting Master Kohga

To progress further in the game, you must defeat Master Kohga in this battle. There will be phases of the fight that you will counter while battling him.

  1. In the first phase, you will find him on his boat in the water.
  2. He will be accompanied by two long-range arrow fighters who are members of the Yiga Clan.
  3. They are not difficult to counter. You must dodge their arrows and strike back to knock them out.

  1. Next, you must take a boat which can be found near the docks, and make your way to the boss.
  2. You have to strike him with an arrow and jump on his boat, consistently attacking him.
  3. After some hits, he will vanish and relocate to a new boat nearby with two members accompanying him.
  4. You must repeat the same process until he disappears.
  5. Now you will find him shielded inside a cube to defend himself, which is the second phase.
  6. He will disappear and reappear on boats, throwing large boulders at you.
  7. You can either dodge them and then hit an arrow and consistently hit him.
  8. Alternatively, you can use your recall ability to throw these boulders back at him.
  9. Keep repeating the process until you finally defeat him. He will eventually escape and, you will receive a Treasure chest that contains a Huge Crystallized Charge. 

My Experience With Lanayru Mine

Lanayru Mine brings a lot of aspects to the table. From providing guidance on illuminating objects to the Kohga boss fight, it has been a unique experience for me. I will advice players to first learn the attack pattern of the boss and then take on with the battle. 

It may seem a little overwhelming with a lot of things happening simultaneously, but in the end the end the boss battle is definitely worth the effort. If you have more questions, you can ask them in the comments section below.
