Shoot the blue flower next to the God Tree to begin the climb.

In order to begin the climb up to The God Tree, follow these steps:

  • Make your way around the base of the tree until you see a Blue Flower.
  • Fire your arrow at it, and it will bring you up to the first platform.
  • From there, climb up to the ledge above, and turn 180 degrees to the ledge that’s behind you.
  • Jump across, and from there, it’s a case of using your parkour skills and jumping onto the ledges marked with white paint.

After shuffling your way across a set of overhanging ledges you’ll see another blue flower located on a tree opposite. Shoot your arrow over to the other side, and then use the wooden cable car contraption to move across to a higher ledge on the God Tree.

  • For the insects, it’s best to use range to one-shot them out of the skies, and for the melee monsters, it’s just a case DPSing them down as quickly as possible.

The real threats of the God Shrine are the purple-eyed monkeys that shoot explosive range attacks.

  • To take them down, use your arrow to jump to each platform using the blue flowers, allowing you to escape their projectiles and attack them from a distance.

Remember to constantly switch between the platforms, as this will ensure you never become overwhelmed by corrupted creatures. After all of the enemies are defeated, simply restore the Shrine by sending your Rot to the flower, and using your Pulse skill when close to it, or you arrow from a distance to restore the corruption.

So, there you have it, that’s exactly how to restore the God Tree Shrine and complete Rosu’s task in Kena Bridge of Spirits. Don’t forget to check out our Kena homepage for a selection of guides to help you on your playthrough!
