Switch the tablets off to disable the status easily. However, while turning off the first and second statues this way, players will find Findal in that passage. Use your most powerful weapons and save Findal by fighting with the Goblins and then go on to the Wolf Statue’s tablet and finally disable it.

Use Mage Hand

If you find it hard to turn off any tablet to disable a statue, you can always use the Mage Hand technique on your screen to turn off the tablet.

Use Mage Hand only when needed desperately. After turning all the switches off and disabling the statues, please get to the treasure chest in the Underground Passage area with the team and open it up for valuable rewards and weapons.
