The first thing you will notice when approaching the gate are the four murals on either side of the door of a knight in different situations. Three of them have swords, while one is missing. The puzzle isn’t as simple as just finding the missing sword -(believe us, we wish it was!) but putting them in the right spots. The swords are not in the correct order, so you will need to rearrange them. Here’s which type of sword corresponds with each mural going from left to right.

  1. Iron Sword
  2. Golden Sword
  3. Bloodied Sword
  4. Rusted Sword

Somehow putting these swords in this order will cause the gate to open. While we can help you solve this puzzle, don’t ask us to explain the mechanics of it. Regardless, you’re now free to venture forth to further challenges.
