How does the Sheikah slate work?
Then, how do you use the Sheikah slate?
Place your Sheikah Slate onto the pedestal, and the entire place will rumble and shake as a large imposing tower bursts from the ground taking you high up into the air. This is one of many Resurrection Towers spread across Hyrule, and you'll note similar towers rising up all over the land.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you use Sheikah slate to find shrines?
Beyond just wandering around and stumbling upon them, the easiest way to find shrines is to climb to high ground and survey the surrounding area. Climb high, press the right analog stick to pull out your Sheikah slate and look all around you. New shrines will glow a shade of yellow (or amber, if you prefer).
For those unfamiliar with the latest Breathe of the Wild title, the Sheikah Slate is one of the first items you get after Link wakes up from a mysterious slumber. The slate, which looks like a Wii U controller, or a Nintendo Switch, functions as a magical navigation, communication, and compendium accessory.
