Mortal Kombat 11: How To Unlock Shang Tsung’s Throne Room | Warrior Shrine Heads Puzzle Guide

Just one of the 10 heads you’ll need to place.

If you’re a hardcore Mortal Kombat 11 player, you’re probably wondering what the deal is with those strange head placards in the Warrior Shrine. The Krypt, the area where you’ll spend your various in-game currencies, is full of mysteries, and the final room of the Krypt that’s only available to long-time players is Shang Tsung’s Throne Room. Hidden behind the entrance doors, you’ll need to earn a whole lot of fatalities to unlock this area.

The second most difficult area is located in the Mountain Pass, in the cavern beneath the Dragon Amulet door. There are three difficult amulets you’ll need to collect to solve that puzzle. For a full guide explaining every step, check out the Dragon’s Amulet Grotto Puzzle Solution here.

The Dragon Amulet Grotto puzzle requires a staggering 10,000+ Soul Fragments to complete. That might sound like an insane amount of grinding, but solving the Warrior Shrine puzzle is actually going to take you a whole lot longer. Seriously.
