[edit] Notes

  • The order of stone placements:
    • First stone is on the easternmost side of the ruins, the first one you reach coming from the Durmand Priory camp.
    • Second stone is beside the Statue of Melandru, northwest of the first.
    • Third stone is beside the Stone Wall, south of the second.
    • Fourth stone is beside the Statue of Dwayna, west of the third.
    • Fifth stone is near the Stone Stairs, northwest of the fourth.
    • Sixth stone is near three stacked columns, northeast of the fifth - there's no other interactive objects near it.
    • Final stone is near the Broken Pillar, northeast of the sixth.
  • There is no special reward for solving this puzzle.
  • Your progress may reset if you take too long to interact with the next stone in the sequence.
Sometimes your progress is restarted regardless of your quickness.
