Totempuzzle

The puzzle, solved and with the miracle dispenser reward in front of it.

The Japanese Totem Puzzle is a non-scroll challenge from Black & White, located on Land 4, above the shore where The Fish Puzzle is.


GuidelinesEdit

This puzzle is a mathematical challenge. Clicking on the signpost provides the player with some information. The objective is to have every totem fully up, moving a totem may affect other totems, however.

The totems can be fully down (how they are at the start), 1/4 up, halfway up, 3/4 up and fully up (as they are at the end), making it 5 possible positions total. The player can move totems up and down.

A fully raised totem, when affected by another totem that makes him raise one more space, will revert to the lowest position. (That is, a fully raised totem affected by a totem that makes him raise twice will be lowered to 1/4 height, and so on).

Assuming the player is facing the totems, the following is true:

  • Totem #1 affects totems #2 (+4) and #6 (+2), and is affected by totem #3 (+1)
  • Totem #2 affects no totems, and is affected by totems #1 (+4), #3 (+1) and 6# (+3)
  • Totem #3 affects totems #1 (+1), #2 (+1) and #4 (+2), and is affected by totem #4 (+1)
  • Totem #4 affects totem #3 (+1) and is affected by totems #3 (+2) and #6 (+1)
  • Totem #5 affects totem #6 (+1) and is affected by no totems.
  • Totem #6 affects totems #2 (+3) and #4 (+1) and is affected by totems #1(+2) and #5 (+1)

(The "+numbers" refers to the aforementioned five possible positions). With that in mind it is possible to see that if totem #5 is affected by no other totems, it must be fully risen first. and since totem #2 affects no totems, it should be risen last.

The SolutionEdit

  1. Raise totem #1 3 notches.
  2. Lower totem #2 1 notch.
  3. Raise totem #3 1 notch.
  4. Lower totem #4 2 notches.
  5. Fully raise totem #5
  6. Fully raise totem #6


Reward: A spiritual shield miracle dispenser, just like the one next to the temple.
