The increased difficulty is mainly because you have to complete the Pillar Push Kyber Brick Puzzle under time pressure.
So you have to be quite fast and also have a good strategy for the Pillar Push Puzzle in the video game developed by TT Games, that’s if you want to add to your inventory one of the Kyber Bricks in Theed.
Therefore, I’ll provide instructions and screenshots throughout the following guide so you can solve the Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga Pillar Push Puzzle without any problems.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Pillar Push Puzzle Location
The puzzle’s location is on the northeast part of Theed, in the palace.
I have marked the entrance to the palace on the map below.
Once you are in the palace, go up the stairs and enter through the door here to reach a large hallway with many pillars.
Now, if you buy the rumor for the puzzle, you’ll get the following tip:
The palace has such a rich history… and mysterious one! Previous Queens have installed all sorts of elaborate puzzles to hide their jewels. Just take the pillars in the hallway for example…Pillar Push Kyber Brick Puzzle Rumor
So it seems that the puzzle has something to do with the pillars.
Pillar Push Puzzle Solution – How To Get The Kyber Brick
If you look up, you can see four balconies above the pillars, two to the left and two to the right.
Each balcony has a lever on it, and to complete the Pillar Push Puzzle, you have to interact with all four of the levers in under 30 seconds.
The timer starts after you interact with the first lever, and also it is good to know that you can attempt to complete the puzzle as many times as you need.
Now, as you can see, four of the pillars are movable. Each pillar has bars on it that you can use to climb on it.
So you have to position the pillars to reach each balcony.
I suggest moving two pillars near the northern balconies.
And the other two, near the southern balconies.
As you can see in the images above, you should put one pillar between the balconies on each side so you can jump on it to reach the other balcony.
Put the pillars precisely like in the screenshot above if you can’t reach the balconies with your strategy.
Another big tip I can give you is to position one character on one of the northern balconies without interacting with the levers and the other character on one of the southern balconies.
Now interact with one lever and jump to the other balcony on this side to interact with the second lever, then swap to the other character and do the same on that side.
Another helpful tip is to use characters that can grapple. The best character you can use for this puzzle is Boba Fett because he can grapple and also fly for a little while, which is really helpful for switching between balconies.
Practice for a while, and I’m sure you’ll pull it through.
After you interact with the four levers in under 30 seconds, the door to your Kyber Brick will open.
