The Postulant’s Parlor Chess puzzle solution in Remnant 2

As you make your way to the Postulant’s Parlor section of Fae Palace on Losomn, you must head past a few doorways and enemies to reach a silent statue sitting on the stage at the central part of the area. Do keep in mind that you will need the magical quill to open the doorway that leads to Postulant’s Parlor.

Players will be controlling the white pieces on the chess board during the Parlor Puzzle, whereas the Postulant itself will be controlling the black pieces.

The aim of the chess puzzle is to put your three pieces in a straight line, making it more of a tic-tac-toe. If players manage to do so, they will complete the puzzle. If the enemy manages to put all his pieces in a straight line, players will be inflicted with the Curse status effect.


The cursed effect removes a portion of the player’s health which can only be regained by resting at a checkpoint. The status effect also stacks so the more you lose the game, the more your health will go down.
