To solve and activate Riddle Statues in Diablo 4, you’ll need to interact with the faded plaques that are on the front of each statue. This will reveal a partial message, with a few keywords still legible and a certain phrase in capital letters. From there, you’ll need to use a specific emote while standing in front of the statue to solve it, with the message hinting at what emote you will need to use.

For example, one type of message will read “GREET Death open arms,” which will require the Hello emote to complete. Doing so will grant players temporary buffs or items like loot, gold, or potions.

To use a Diablo 4 emote on PC, click E on your keyboard, and you’ll be presented with a emote wheel with several segments, each with various emotes. Use your mouse to select the emote you want, click it, and your character will perform the emote.

If any emote isn’t present, you’ll need to select Customize under the emote wheel, choose the emote tab in the menu, and add it to your emote wheel to use it.
