    help plz!

    The first statue you get to, turn it Clockwise twice, it will look down a long hall that seems to have a window-esque thing at the end.

    Second statue turn clockwise once, third gets turned clockwise once.

    And in the event they're randomly faced, they appear as yellow arrows on your map, check it and see which way they're facing (hint: all 3 have to face the center).

    I'm sure posting in the stickied thread will yield results instead of making a new one every time you're stuck. =\

    just face them all towards the center

    Try looking in the big convoluted maze on the map, that's the one I had missed.

    There's one on the left of the map, down the stairs from there should bring you to the maze thing with a second, and the third is on the right of the map that you need to fight a boss for.

    Sorry it's not very clear >.>; I don't know a better way to put it.

    well...

    i found the 1 on the left hand side of the map

    i found the other 1 i guess on the bottom side

    i assume the third is on the right hand side of the map... but after looking at the map it seems that i have to get behind the door that says (this door only opens from the inside) the one of the 2 at the begining of the dungeon

    does that make anysense?

    Should be through the left side of the map then, I think. Go to the left, down the stairs through the maze with the second statues, look for an exit in the top right, should lead you to the other side of that door.

    But yeah your map was right, you just need to get to the other side of that door and beat the boss. I don't remember doing anything special to get there, so..

    Turn it so they are all facing inwards.
    Code:
    -->                    <--
    
                 ^
                  |
    Like so.

    Yay. You can see which way they are facing by looking at your map.

    WTF boss at the end of this fight is stupid

    like 5 elementals??? PLUS a crazy bitch ass boss what the shit

    im just spamming HIpots to get thru it going on round 3 tommorow morning with 99 pots and 99 alarm clocks

    gambits are alarm clock > hipot > cure > attack so dmg is kinda slow since i have like 6 mobs fucking me up at a time

    might change vaan to only alarm clock > attack and let the other 2 spam cure and mebbe do some manual cures with him along the way

    Spamming thundaga also works. I had more trouble trying to control hate on my casters than taking out the eles. After they are down it's easy to swap in new characters for quickening combos.

    Souleater with a hammer is also a plus.

    Mateus seemed easy to me. One Ark Blast combo and the elementals fell, few shots from Balthier took him out after that.

    Also managed to get land a Black Hole quickening combo on the Judge back at Mt. Bur-Omisace. Instant win.

    Man every storyline related boss fight lately has been the biggest pushover in the world, i know its my own fault since I leveled myself so much higher then i should be for this stage but man...its seriously such a joke lol

    Tiamat, Elder Wyrm even was rediculously easy....granted i was completely prepared with all the meds and what not....

    Magnetic field boss in Miriam, like 15k HP, took me like 15 attacks lol....and he did like no dmg to me

    Mateus? i dunno if it was the ice shields or what but even the elementals went down super easy, it seems like all these bosses hit you so weak, then you do some random Hunt or optional Esper and they pwn you even if your prepared sometimes lol...
    Guess id like to see the storyline bosses harder then anything optional, just after playing FFXI, then going to FFXII and killing Tiamat in 2 minutes flat is odd to me...
