This puzzle is on Ember Isle, at Nykantor Ruins. Find the Mysterious Plaque on a ground-level outer wall at (12823, 3857) to be teleported to the first tower platform.
Go to the Torch (the one that starts Exposing the Sneaks), down the stairs and left to the Idol of Maelforge against the wall.
There are four large blue orbs at the cardinal points, with eight smaller blue orbs (two between each of the large ones). Once you start, an arc of green orbs appears on the southeast quarter of the edge of the platform and every few clicks will make one green orb vanish — This is your timer. Only the large orbs are clickable, and each does something different. Starting at the north orb we will label the smaller orbs clockwise: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1 and D2.
- North - Rotates lighted orbs 1 position clockwise
- East - Resets all to blue
- South - Rotates lighted orbs 1 position counter-clockwise
- West - Toggles A2, B2 and C2
This puzzle can be solved pushing nothing but West and South. Just keep varying it back and forth until you see the right pattern. Stand in the middle and turn off your UI so you can see all four large orbs.
When completed a Mysterious Plaque will appear in the center which will take you to the next puzzle.
Exact same appearance as the first platform, except the timer is the southwest arc. This platform is actually located in Forlorn Fen!
- North - Toggles A1, A2 and C1
- East - Rotates lighted orbs 1 position clockwise
- South - Resets all to blue
- West - Rotates lighted orbs 1 position counter-clockwise
This puzzle can be solved pushing nothing but North and East. Just keep varying it back and forth until you see the right pattern. Stand in the middle and turn off your UI so you can see all four large orbs.
When completed a Treasure Chest will appear in the center. Click it once to open and once to loot A Mossy Sack, which will contain your rewards, and earn the achievement Emerald Enigma.
A Mysterious Plaque on a pylon in the northeast will take you back to the ground safely.
