GOD of War Ragnarök has a vast world to explore, and one of the more difficult areas to traverse is the Temple of Light.

The Twilight stone needs to be hit to finish this puzzle.

Make sure you aim your axe well.

The Temple of Light is also home to the Hilt of Gram, a powerful stunning relic.

If you’re struggling with the statue puzzle in God of War Ragnarök’s Temple of Light, we’ve got you covered.

How to solve the Temple of light statue puzzle in God of War Ragnarök

While searching for Groa’s Shrine, you’ll find a room at the top of a spiral staircase with two statues.

The one on the left is leaning, while the right one stands straight.

This is how you solve the puzzle so you can open the door and proceed.

Firstly, you need to tell Atreus to fire a sonic arrow at the base of the straight statue, causing it to lean to the right.

Use your blades to pull it to the left, which will open up a route so you can climb behind it.

Once up here, you can grapple across so you are standing behind the other statue.

This will cause this statue to lean over even more. From behind, you can then use your blades to pull on the statue.

A connector will then appear that you can break by throwing your axe.

This will cause one of the wings to fall off, exposing another part. However, you still need to break off the other wing.

Throw your axe at the back of the shield that has a twilight stone on it.

This will cause the second wing to fall off, and the statue will lean forward.

Grapple back across to the first statue, and look back at the shield.

From this angle, you should be able to hit the stone near the exit with your axe, opening the path forward.

Shortly after this, you will encounter the Alva boss battle, so make sure you have mastered your shield strikes.
