Nubarron: The Adventure of an Unlucky Gnome – The Five Pillar Puzzle Solution

I figured it out so you don’t have to!

How to Solve The Five Pillar Puzzle

The Solution

Without any plot spoilers, at some point you will reach this puzzle – it contains five pillars and jumping Slimies. You have to pull the levers in a correct combination in order to complete this segment.

According to the book of Nubarron that’s available via the pause menu, the symbols on the pillars are numbers! Those are from left to right: 1, 15, 2, 8 and 35. However, the way Slimies jump seems to be random and doesn’t have anything to do with the pattern.

I tried selecting the levels from lowest number to largest – nope. Reverse – nope. Tried to figure out the pattern of the Slimies and select them that way – nothing.

I couldn’t mange to find a logical solution and had to brute force my way to the answer via trial and error. So I recorded myself just spamming the levers for five minutes until I got the answer.

It’s first two levers from the left and the last one on the right.

Yeah, no clue either why that’s the case.

  1. So I had the right solution, but miscounted, I was sure the last one is 34 that’s why I came here. So basically all odd numbers are lit up. All even are not. If you pull the levers the number of times the column says it will be the same 🙂

  2. so by the time i reached this level i had 18 pages and i was SO SURE that i had to activate the first three levers because that equals 18. But no…
