Resident Evil Village has a few puzzles that players will encounter, including one involving stone monuments This one is difficult at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a cinch. It all makes sense. Without further ado, here’s what you need to hear about the Resident Evil Village abandoned stone statue puzzle.
How to solve Resident Evil Village abandoned stone statue puzzle
Leaving Lady Dimitrescu’s castle is a pain in the buttocks. You’ve got killer vampires, corridors that all look the same, and dilapidated floors that just try to kill you because life stinks.
It’s quite a bit. Fortunately, the puzzles don’t have to be a source of additional annoyance for those who want to continue reading the (amazing) plot.
You’ll find this puzzle on the second floor of the castle, which you’ll become overly acquainted with during your time in Village. The room you need to be in is known as the Hall of Ablution, and it can be found after crossing the courtyard after leaving the main hall.
There is a door to the right of the courtyard; work your way up towards it to find a series of stairs. Ascend the stairs, proceed down the corridor, and reach the third door on the left.
This puzzle initially perplexed me, but if you’re stuck, don’t panic, you’re not alone. The good news is that it’s not as difficult as it seems. The good thing is that we’re here to help you get through it.
When you reach the Ablution section, you will see four statues and an eerie puddle of blood in the centre (remember, vampires?). The sculptures can be rotated from left to right in order to pivot them to the correct orientation for solving this puzzle. Let’s get this party started:
Before approaching any of the statues, walk straight through the space from where you entered until you come to a bronze plaque. “Women are blind to male advances,” the message says, “but the poor shall take their chances, to give their lords their bounty sown, so that soon the wine will pour.”
Don’t you despise riddles? Fortunately, as you look at each individual statue, you can see that this is pretty clear:
Statue #1 Man Riding A Horse
Statue #2 Beggars
Statue #3 Wine Glass Woman (Yeah, girl, get it)
Statue #4 Wine Bottle Woman (She knows what’s up)
According to the riddle, the ladies with the wine would be facing each other, with the man riding a horse facing the statue with the woman directly in front of him.
Finally, you’ll place the statue with the beggars so that it faces squarely at the statue with the man on a horse, and voilà! You’ve finished the puzzle.
You’ll know you’ve done it correctly as the pool starts to empty and a new passageway appears. Take the stairs and prepare to fight for your life.
