Name the pillars A, B, C and D. Each of the pillars will spin either ABCD, ABC, AB, or just A. Start with the one that spins all four, then the one that does three, then two, then the last one. The correct icon positions are on the walls of the hallway leading up to the pillars.
Just because you say it's your "opinion", doesn't make it not *wrong*.

look up above the pillars or stones you have to rotate

the correct picture is shown, so rotate the pillar/stone to match

one of the parts have a time limit so you have to be fast

Lo and behold, the second I post that the original posted solution doesn't work, it works. I'm not sure what the key is here...I tried it a couple of times to no avail, and then after a while, that combination worked and lined up all of the right symbols.

If you are just walking into the room:


Hit em in "A, B, C, D" order, and my guess is that eventually they will line up with the symbols above them...might take a couple tries. Aside from finding the right sequence, I'm not sure what the trick is here, but I don't think it's timed.

i think there were two puzzles in the dungeon and the second one was timed

pretty sure i saw the pillar moving on it's own!
