On Eventide, if you leave the island, you abandon the shrine challenge.

But if you throw one of the balls so far away that you have to leave to get the ball, what can you do? Did you just make yourself have to die and restart the challenge?

  • I figure that the initial load that either takes your equipment or returns it would also reset the challenge (like the sphere position). – BlueBarren May 12 '17 at 15:57

    I had one despawn after losing it in the water and unrecoverable. I circled the island, went as far as I could from it, and ran across it back where I originally found it. I'm not positive if moving far enough away from the ball itself, the ball spawn point, or both, allowed it to despawn, however. Something that could be tested and better formed into an answer... – king14nyr May 12 '17 at 19:54

You can attempt to place Cryonis in such a way that the ball rolls off the ice pillar towards the island. And do so over and over again until it gets to shore. But it's probably less tedious and mind-numbing to just restart the whole challenge.

    Alternatively if there is anything you can magnesis you might be able to guide it back in with that too if it's not too far away. – adaliabooks May 13 '17 at 13:40
  • Unloading the orb is much easier IMO. – Egor Hans Mar 4 at 15:58

Move as far away from the ball as you can, to the opposite point of the island, and don't look towards it. This should cause the ball to unload, which will make it reappear where you first found it.
