- How to transfer a crystal
Crystal shrines are a bit more hidden than the average shrine in the The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Realm. The Northwest Mountain Hebra Crystal activates the Ratafu-um Shrine and rewards you with Rauru’s Blessing. The crystal is at the bottom of an extremely icy cold pond in the northwest cave of the Hebra Mountains.
Inside the cave is a pond filled with water that will slowly damage you the longer you are in it. No amount of warm clothing will save you from this water, so don’t try caving. The crystal can be fished out with icicles from the top of the cave, but you have to clear the room of enemies first.
