Magnesis is a Rune Ability in the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

This rune lets you have a magnet-like ability. You can pick up and interact with metal objects.

You get this Rune at the Oman Au Shrine, and use it to beat the Magnesis Trial.


Manipulate metallic objects using magnetism.

Grab on to metallic objects using the magnetic energy that pours forth from the Magnesis Rune. Objects held in the magnetic snare can be lifted up and moved freely.

Where to get[edit]


Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Objects you can interact with using Magnesis will turn yellow when you have them targeted
    • Non-metallic objects will remain red.
  • You can move a metallic object between you and an enemy, thus using it as a barrier.
  • Magnesis lets you pull over out-of-reach Metallic Treasure Chests which you might otherwise not have been able to get to and loot.
    • Try "Treasure Fishing" by using Magnesis to pull out Treasure Chests from the river right outside the shrine where you got the ability.
