How to Solve Statue’s Shield Twilight Stone Puzzle in Temple of Light God of War Ragnarok
Once you get to this location, you will find out that your way is barred by a light door that you need to open somehow. Atreus will draw attention toward a large statue directly above the light door, and point out that there is Twilight Stone (the purple crystal) on it. Also, that you won’t be able to solve the puzzle until you get this stone to a right angle. The first thing you need to do here is to have Atreus shoot the green gem at the base of the statue on the other side. This will cause it to topple over. After that, use your Blades of Chaos to move it to the left. Doing this will expose a path up that you can take. Go up and then to the other side from there, where the statue with the Twilight Stone is.
Approach the statue and have Atreus shoot it, the same way he did the other one. Have Kratos move it to the left. When you have done that, you will see a white and blue glowing spot. Throw your axe at it. You can now move the statue more to the right, so do that. Stand to the right of the statue and aim your axe at the Twilight Stone from the inside. Throw the axe and you will have destroyed another part of the statue that was blocking it. Move it to the left once more. Now, go up to the balcony opposite of the statue with the Twilight Stone. Aim your Axe at the Twilight Stone from there. You will see that the aiming arrow has turned blue, indicating that this is the right angle. Throw it to break the crystal and open the light door.
