The excerpt journal from the heist in the center of the room gives you a hint on how to solve the puzzle, mentioning that Tunaska stood on the north, with Akishu (blade) and Buhliz (serpent) surrounding. It also mentions that Narimaya stood on the south, with Nishka (symbol of pride) and Puntru (scholar) surrounding. Go to the pillars at the door. You will find that you can turn all six of the pillars, which have a possibility of three symbols each on them. Start with the left side.

Quest Stages[edit]

A Flawless Plan
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I should head to the Thieves Den and speak with Zeira about her plan.
Objective: Talk to Zeira
Zeira plans to return to the al-Danobia family tomb where Nicolas and the rest of the guild perished. She believes Percius Loche can help, and asked Quen and I to meet him at his shop in Abah's Landing.
Objective: Meet Percius Loche at the Diamond Thimble
Percius Loche isn't here, and his shop is in shambles! I should speak with his clerk, Mamaea of his whereabouts.
Objective: Talk to Mamaea
The Iron Wheel is after Percius Loche! In his rush to escape from his shop, he stumbled through a vat of bright green dye. I should find where his trail begins!
Objective: Find Percius Loche's Trail
There's very little time to find Percius Loche before the Iron Wheel catches him. I should follow his trail of bright green footprints as fast as I can!
Objective: Find Percius Loche Before the Iron Wheel Does
Objective Hint: Follow the Bright Green Bootprints
I found Percius Loche before the Iron Wheel did. I should speak with him, quickly.
Objective: Talk to Percius Loche
The matter with Percius Loche is resolved. I should talk to Zeira at Prince's Gate when I'm ready to depart Abah's Landing.
Objective: Talk to Zeira
When I'm ready, I should speak with Zeira and let her know I'm ready to travel to al-Danobia Tomb.
Objective: Travel to al-Danobia Tomb
The Iron Wheel has set up camp outside al-Danobia Tomb. I should sneak past the camp in order to reach the entrance.
Objective: Sneak Past the Iron Wheel
Objective Hint: I could speak with Zeira before I leave and see if she has any advice.
I should explore al-Danobia Tomb.
Objective: Explore al-Danobia Tomb
A great door blocks our way. If we are to advance further into al-Danobia Tomb, I must solve the mystery of Tu'whacca's Pillars. I should refer to Nicolas' journal for hints.
Objective: Bypass Tu'whacca's Pillars
Now that we've bypassed Tu'whacca's Pillars, we should venture deeper into al-Danobia Tomb.
Objective: Explore HoonDing's Passage
After exploring further into al-Danobia Tomb, we reached an impassable chasm known as Shinji's Truth. I should see what Zeira has to say and follow her lead.
Objective: Follow Zeira's Lead
Zeira needs me to watch her back as we walk Malooc's Path. I should stay close to Zeira until we make it through.
Objective: Walk Malooc's Path
Zeira and I made it through Malooc's Path. We should recover Tall Papa's Ashes, which will reveal Shinji's Truth.
Objective: Recover Tall Papa's Ashes
Objective: Talk to Zeira
I should return to Shinji's Truth with Tall Papa's Ashes.
Objective: Return to Shinji's Truth

Now that I've crossed Shinji's Truth, I should enter the al-Danobia treasure vaults.

We should search the al-Danobia treasure vaults for Magnifica Falorah's dowry, or clues to its absence.
Objective: Search the al-Danobia Treasure Vaults
Magnifica Falorah's dowry is gone, and Nicolas—the former guildmaster—may have had something to do with it. I should return to Hew's Bane as soon as I can. From there, I will meet Zeira at Nicolas's desert retreat.
Objective: Leave al-Danobia Tomb
Objective Hint: Talk to Zeira
Zeira asked me to meet her at Nicolas's desert retreat, in the badlands of Hew's Bane.
