Necluda and Thunderhead Isles Shrine locations
West Necluda is relatively bare in terms of landmarks, but the center of Necluda and the Thunderhead Isles nearby has three handy Shrines in total. Just make sure you collect the two available on Thunderhead Isles
North Necluda and South Lanayru Shrine locations
The Great Sky Island has tons of Shrines to find, and a more detailed map is below. Other than that, head over to the North Necluda and South Lanayru for a Shrine each. Then we recommend heading west straight to Great Sky Island for Shrines galore.
Great Sky Island and South Hyrule Shrine locations
South Hyrule has one shrine on its island but Great Sky Island has four, with one on the north, east, south, and west side of the island. Getting hold of these makes this island so much easier to traverse in the long run.
