Pillar Puzzle Solution

After entering the Mysterious Ruins, on your left, you will find three pillars. You need to rotate them till the pillars turn a bright blue, just like in the image below. 

If you want to solve it quickly, just turn the leftmost pillar around twice, the rightmost pillar once, and the middle pillar once. If done correctly, this will summon the elevator to take you to the next stage.

Maze Puzzle Solution

Once you reach the lower level, head down the stairs, and you will find some enemies. You need to defeat all the enemies and keep going down till you come across an exquisite chest.

Now head down the final flight of stairs and go left, then right into the passage.

When you enter the maze, the walls will only open up if you get close to them. The solution is Left > Straight > Right > Left > Right > Right. If done correctly, you will get into a room with another elevator.

Elevator Puzzle Solution

You will reach an area with enemies and an exquisite chest. Once you defeat the enemies and unlock the chest to collect the items, look around for an arrow pointer that you can investigate. When you get close to it, there will be a hint on what you should do next.

Now head back to the elevator and activate it to make it start going down, it will get stuck midway. Jump down and stand on the elevator platform below and activate it to go up.

Get out of the elevator back on the floor with the exquisite chest and press the Activate Elevator button on the wall.

Wait till the elevator goes down, then starts coming back up again. This time, jump on the elevator to make your way up.

Pillar Puzzle Solution (2)

In front of you, you will notice two automatic rotating pillars up the stairs and two buttons on the floor on either side. The pillars need to light up bright blue, after which you need to press both the buttons to the off position. If done correctly, the elevator will rise.

Now all that is left is to get into the elevator and activate it, then let it take you to the exit of the Mysterious Ruins.
