Tabantha frontier

The Tabantha Frontier is a location from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a region of the northwestern Hebra province of Hyrule. Tabantha is home to the Rito, as well as a large variety of animals and monsters adapted to the climate.

Environment

Due to being located in the far north, Tabantha has temperatures ranging from mildly cool to frigid. The most common path to take has to do with crossing the Tabantha Great Bridge from Hyrule Ridge. The path is long and treacherous, with Guardian Skywatchers patrolling the first part, a Rare Stone Talus blocking the trail, and multiple camps of mixed monsters, some carrying Rito Weapons. The area is grassy, and one of the few places where you can harvest Tabantha Wheat (Hot-Footed Frogs are also common in the grass). Being the home of the Rito, there are large gusts of wind all around, and the windy climate hinders Paraglider tansportation.

Overview

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Warning

Link has to travel here to appease the Divine Beast Vah Medoh in his quest to take back the Divine Beast from Ganon. After a long journey, he makes it to Rito Village, stationed on an archipelago in the center of a large lake. Vah Medoh screeches, and a small cutscene of the avian machine plays. When gathering details, the Rito tell Link that the Divine Beast is preventing the Rito from flying too far high, shooting down any that come close with dangerous cannons. This, the Rito complain, is very damaging to their self-esteem, as the Rito take pride in flight. The Rito elder, believing that Link is only a deceendant of the Champions, informs Link of his duty and gives him a task.

Teba, a Rito warrior, is attempting to fight the large Divine Beast by himself, after his other warriors were deciamted and maimed by Vah Medoh's cannons. Kaneli asks Link to stop him, revealing that he is located at the Flight Range, bordering the Hebra Mountains. Link also learns more about Revali after a Rito tells him the history of a platform that could easily glide him there. Once arriving, Teba, persistent on his mission, makes it certain to Link that he will not give up his goal to defend his people. Link then attempts to help Teba, and only after a test on the Flight Range does Teba accept. Teba tells him that the four cannons are protecting a shield blocking access to the massive metal bird. Destroying the cannons, Teba claims, will cut the shields.

Link gets on Teba's back, and Teba flies up to the Divine Beast, who engages in combat. Link, equipped with Bomb Arrows, fires at the cannons while Teba distracts their gaze. Each cannon takes at least two bomb arrows to deactivate, and once they are defeated, the shield disintegrates. Unfortunately, Teba was harmed by the cannon's beams, so he retreats, meaning that now, Link must defeat Vah Medoh himself. He activated a device with his Sheikah Slate, and he hears a familiar and cynical voice address him. . .

The spirit of Revali guides Link throught the inner machinations of Vah Medoh, activating the five Terminals, unlocking the Main Control, and fighting the foul Windblight Ganon. Revali, now freed from one hundred years, gives Link Revali's Gale, and stations the Divine Beast on top of Rito Village, positioned at Hyrule Castle, ready to strike...

The Rito celebrate and reward Link with Revali's Great Eagle Bow, proclaiming their support.
