Remember, there are 3 white tiles in the first room and 4 white tiles in the second room. --- What do you want of me? I gave you love and you gave me nothing. I gave you time and still no love. Well, enough is enough, I hate you.
Just thought I'd mention that you had to use 2 spheres to activate the lift - the first four statues are activated by doing the floor puzzles and the last two need spheres placed in them. (I think) there's a Besaid sphere attached to the screen in the second room and a Kilika sphere that seems to amount to a light switch.
But as everyone said, you have to return to the trials to get the destruction sphere - you don't have to trudge through the dome again though - there are now active teleporters all the way from the foot of Gagazet to the back of the Zanarkand Dome. --- ericreiman: Let's Engrish all at same together time!
