With 152 shrines, it'll be a task to rank all of them in a single article. Of course, that is a task I am willing to take on, but not without ranking each region individually first. With Faron being the smallest region, it was obvious that this would come first. With a total of six shrines, this region doesn't even have as many shrines as the Great Plateau in Breath of The Wild! But I digress. Without further ado, RPG Ranked presents... Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: All Faron Shrines RANKED!
6. Bamitok Shrine - Rauru's Blessing
This shrine is literally so mid. There is no quest, there is no puzzles, yet somehow, it is a blessing shrine. Wow, how inventive. There's a kind of cool cave enterence, but otherwise, the only substance to finding this shrine is getting past a Horriblin, two Rock Likes, and two Shock Likes. Eh, this shrine is mid as all sin, even with a B Tier cave entrance. D Tier.
5. Ishokin Shrine - Rauru's Blessing
It's almost like we found the Giant Horse already in Breath of the Wild. Wow, how original this is! Granted, finding the Giant Horse is fun anyway, but the fact this is basically a rehash of a previous game, as well as having one of those annoying green crystals for the twenty-seventh time in the game. With two of my biggest gripes with Tears of the Kingdom rearing their ugly head here, I don't like this shrine much. But since I like horses, this doesn't stink too badly. C Tier.
4. Jojo-u-u Shrine - Building Bridges
With such an original (and stupid) name for this shrine, you'd think something more interesting than building bridges would be the point of this shrine. The first puzzle? Build a bridge. Wow, how insane. Second puzzle? Build a bridge, but use Recall. Not much better. Third? Use a metal block to anchor a bridge. And somehow, the treasure chest puzzle is literally just elevating a bridge. This shrine is so unoriginal, but at least I had some more fun with it than the last two shrines on this list. C Tier.
3. Utsushok Shrine - Long or Wide
This has a very interesting final puzzle involving paddles and minecarts. However, the introductory puzzles and the treasure chest puzzle are incredibly barebones, and do not hold up to many other shrines in Tears of the Kingdom or its predecessor. It is a fun shrine, but not a stand-out shrine. I don't have many problems with it, I just feel like it could have built on its interesting ideas much more than it did in the end. A B Tier for this shrine.
2. Utajis Shrine - Rauru's Blessing
Unlike Breath of the Wild, this game is lacking in the original Shrine Quests department. The majority of Shrine Quests in this game are those annoying green crystals over and over and over again! But this shrine? This is a callback to the incredibly interesting Breath of the Wild Shrine Quests. Throwing a spear with a wing attached and throwing it through a wing? I don't know why this was so cool, but it was. Overall, this shrine easily outclasses the extremely bland other shrines on this list. The Faron region is kind of lacking, but this feels like a shrine from a much grander region in my eyes. A Tier.
1. Sifumim Shrine - Proving Grounds: Flow
Perhaps the best of the already amazing proving grounds shrines, the Sifumim Shrine stands out above the mostly mediocre Faron shrines. This is a very interesting shrine, as these sort of wood buoys bob up and down around a large centerpiece. The constructs all have varied weapons, and the Time Bombs and different elements add an extra layer to this already very unique shrine. I love the Proving Grounds shrines, and since this is one of the best of them, this shrine easily edges out on top of the other shrines on this list. S+ Tier.
