Ghost Of Tsushima Shrine In Shadow, or the Wind Shrine In Shadow, is one of the three Forgotten Shrines introduced by the Iki Island DLC. The Shrine In Shadow allows you to unlock a unique armor skin for Jin Sakai, provided you know how to solve another small puzzle or riddle similar to the one from the Shrine Of Ash.

As such, below, we’ll go over the Wind Shrine In Shadow puzzle, and I’ll tell you how to solve the associated riddle and how to unlock the Shadow Of The Colossus Armor Skin for Jin.

The Shrine In Shadow is found on the southern side of Iki Island. As you can see on my map below, it is located south of Buddha’s Footprints.

Shrine In Shadow Puzzle Solution

Once you approach the location marked above, you’ll find the shrine at the edge of a cliff. Approach it and read the scroll on the small wooden bench in front of it. The scroll comes with the following riddle:

“Stone knows no season,
nor the colossus that was
felled to save one soul.
Wanderer, come like through mist,
a ghost casting no shadow.”

From this poem, you can get two important clues:

  • A ghost casting no shadow – This line refers to the Ghost Armor
  • Wanderer, come like through mist – This line refers to smoke. Specifically the one from Smoke Bombs

Now, in order to solve the riddle, you’ll first have to equip the Ghost Armor. This set is unlocked when you finish the main quest, named From the Darkness, in the second act of the video game. Once you change your outfit from the menu, place Jin in front of the shrine and throw a Smoke Bomb.

To do so, hold R2 and Down to select the Smoke Bomb, then press R1. This results in another beautiful cutscene you should watch. When the cutscene ends, the puzzle is solved, and you’ll unlock the Shadow of the Colossus Armor Set (pictured above), which includes:

  • Mask Of The Colossus
  • Armor Of The Colossus

After you unlock this set, move to the next Forgotten Shrine. If you need help with them, just follow the Blood-Stained Shrine guide or the guide for the Shrine Of Ash.
