We've got your back, Ethan.
Resident Evil Village has a ton of puzzles and this guide — or cheat sheet, as we like to call it — will help you out with passcodes, images to solve visual puzzles and more.
Due to the nature of this guide, be aware that story spoilers follow below, so read at your own risk!
Hall of Ablution puzzle
“Women are blind to male advances, but the poor shall take their chances to give their lord their bounty sown, so that soon the wine may flow.”
To solve this, point the female statues toward one another, and the poor beggars toward the Lord. Don’t move the Lord at all, as he’s supposed to be looking to the female he’s positioned towards by default.
