Head to the right side of the room. You’ll find the Idol locked behind another puzzle. Then, you must figure out the three-digit code to unlock it so you can replace its missing eye.

The hint on the lock tells you — “The son studied every letter of his family’s Latin inscriptions:”

  • Father: Two precious children in his heart.
  • Sister: Four corners of the world to explore with her family.
  • Mother: Six days a week caring for the rest, and one day to honor God. Truly, the family is divine.”

I’ve broken it down into a bulleted list to make dissecting the essential bits of the hint easier.

  • Father's Inscription in Withering Rooms
  • Sister's Inscription in Withering Rooms
  • Mother's Inscription in Withering Rooms

With the hint in mind, examine the Latin phrases engraved on the sarcophagus of each family member in the room. Then, check the phrase given next to each family member’s name in the hint. For instance, the hint for Sister reads: “Four corners of the world to explore with her family.”

To solve the Mostyn Mausoleum puzzle in Withering Rooms, you need to take the second letter from the father’s inscription, the fourth letter from the sister’s inscription, and the sixth letter from the mother’s inscription. Once you have all three letters, arrange them in the order you collected them to spell out the word “DIV.” This word is the pin for the lock.

Your reward for knowing how to solve the Mostyn Mausoleum puzzle in Withering Rooms is a cutscene that explains the history of Mostyn and the dream world. After that, you’ll move on to Chapter 2! Check out our Withering Rooms hub to find other guides, like how to recover items lost after dying.
