Rescue all six of the Su-Zahleel Elders from the Ritual Chamber in Veteran Ruins of Mazzatun.
The solution to the puzzle, in order from right to left (starting from the top)

Savior of the Su-Zahleel is a dungeon achievement which can only be completed in the Veteran version of Ruins of Mazzatun. It involves correctly completing the puzzle in the Ritual Chamber of the dungeon and thereby rescuing all six of the Su-Zahleel tribal elders.

To free an elder, press the button on the dais in front of their cage. There are symbols on the calendar on the ground. One of the calendar's symbols will glow, and you need to press the button that has the corresponding symbol. If a group member messes up the puzzle at any stage, an elder will be drenched in amber plasm. If this happens, the elder you doomed will go mad and attack the group with the rest of the adds. Pressing the correct button (the one that has the same symbol as the one currently glowing on the floor) allows the elder to walk away free from harm.

The order of the symbols that must be followed is always the same. The order is Shaja-Nushmeeko (Dancing Lizard), Hist-Deek (Little Tree), Hist-Tsoko (Biggest Tree), Thtithil (Egg, looks like a Ladybug to some), Xulomaht (Grave Stake, described as a Pencil by some), Xeech (Seed; can be described as a Leaf Boat to those who don't see a seed). The buttons these symbols are on are randomized. For example, Lizard could be set on Naheesh Veesum at the entrance one run, and Naheesh Naxaltan on exit side the next.

There is no consequence to allowing all six of the elders to die in normal mode as this achievement is only available in veteran mode.
