This is the 3rd "test" of 5 on the infamous Pilgrim's Path, and in order to pass, I must open the rock-door. Unlike other gates of its kind, there is seemingly no lever or pull-chain that raises it. So, I must believe that the statue of Nocturnal is in some way important. Also, it would seam that the journal of a failed explorer holds a riddle relating to this very test.

Help a poor Nightingale out?

I have figured it out! You need to douse the torches in the room, as Nocturnal is the lady of shadows.

  • I think the problem for most people is not seeing the chains in the first place rather than not realizing both fires should be out

According to my gameplay and this wiki:

There is two sconces near the statue in the third trial of this quest, on the right side of the right sonce you can see a chain, pull it. And to the sonce, in the left side of it, another chain, pull it too. This way the room will get dark and the path will open.

  • Just noticed you figured it out, sorry, I'll keep the answer if anyone seeks more details.

Next to nocturnal are two lights. Next to those are chains hanging down below them. Pull the chain and the light will go out. Do the same with the other one. When both lights are off, the door will open. Nocturnal is a lady of Night! And it's in the name "Nocturnal" and "Night"engales. XD have fun playing!
