How to Rotate Jammed Stuck Statue in BG3

The first part of the Blood of Lathander statue puzzle in BG3 that you will need to figure out is how to rotate the jammed stuck statue on the southern side of the room. If you interact with it, you will first face a DC 25 Athletics check.

You can try the check with all the characters in your party. If you fail it with all of them, you have two choices:

  • Hit the statue
  • Use Grease on the statue

If you just hit the statue it will start moving. However, there is a risk that you will break it if you do this. Use a low damage attack, maybe the Fire Bolt cantrip for Astarion or Shadowheart, and the statue will start moving.

The easiest way to make the jammed stuck statue rotate in BG3 is to throw a bottle of Grease at it or use a Scroll of Grease on the statue. Interact with it afterward and it will rotate without any problems.

What to Do If You Broke the Stuck Statue

There is also a way to get past the puzzle without actually interacting with the statues. This is probably amazing news for the players that destroyed the statues and can’t interact with the remains anymore.

To get past the Blood of Lathander statue puzzle, just approach the wall to the west and use an AOE attack or spell on it. Using Burning Hands on the wall should instantly destroy it, allowing you to get past it without any special puzzle-solving skills.
