Water temple help plz?

  1. I can't get past the 2nd room here. I'm having trouble with the lock with 4 directional gem stones on it that you have to hit in a certain order. It says that the secret lies with the big statue in the 1st room. Says to check the back, the rear, back of the right hand, back of the left hand. Well I checked them, memorized which direction the blue is pointing and I still can't get that door to open. What am I doing wrong here?

  1. Maybe you've just got the hands the wrong way round... try switching them.
    Also make sure the sword is hitting it in the right direction (the button should light up), as if your swing is slightly off it may count it as the wrong button, and if you do make a mistake, you'll have to reset the lock and start over.

  1. You have all the clues. I'll state them here again in case others need them. The symbols are on the statue. You have to hit the switches in the order stated on the slate. I can't remember the directions they're pointing on the top of my head, but the symbols are located:
    1) On the statue's back, above the water.
    2) On the statue's butt, dive under water at the back of the statue in a small alcove where a big blue slime dwells.
    3) On the back of the right hand. You need to spin-dash to get the silver rupee so the hand stays closed. The symbol is on the knuckles.
    4) On the back of the left hand. You need to spin-dash to get the silver rupee so the hand stays closed. symbol is on the knuckles.
    Each symbol has a blue mark, memorize the blue symbol's position for each or note it down and strike the parts of the switch in that order.

    If you mess up, you need to keep striking until the mechanism resets (4 hits total), then try again. It's possible that you have the correct sequence, but that you're not starting the input from the switch's neutral position.

    If all else fails, revisit the statue and re-check your symbols and start over, you may have made a mistake along the way.
