Nestled in the idyllic northeast area of the lake is the Small Cave Shrine, an oasis of peace with a quaint shack and a perplexing eight-dial puzzle. Mercifully, no adversaries await to mar your puzzle-solving prowess. Instead, keep a lookout for yellow markings on the cave walls, indicating the three symbols you need to manipulate to solve the puzzle.

Following a clockwise rotation from the 12 o’clock dial, you must press symbols number four, six, and seven. Once you’ve deftly pressed the correct dials, the cage door will unlock, and you can lay claim to the first of the two stone heads.

Start from the 12 o’clock dial, and work your way around. Press the dials on both sides of the top middle dial, then hit the dial at 6 o’clock. Once you’ve hit all three buttons correctly, the door will open, and you can lay your mitts on the other stone head.
