Paper Mario The Origami King Water Vellumental Shrine Puzzle Guide
The first puzzle is pretty early in the shrine. The first thing you will need to do it get the missing slate. You will see a blue crab who keeps peeking out of the wall. Go to the spot and bust the wall down and enter. There are a few crabs in the area but only the blue one is important. Go to the end of the hall and hit the wall to reveal a POW block. Clear out the other crabs until you see only the blue crab running around. You need to be near the POW block and bait him out of the wall. When the blue crab is out, hit the POW block and take the slate from him. Return to the next room and make the puzzle look like this.
The next one is much harder to complete. Again you will need to find the missing slate piece. There is a cracked wall in the room with the puzzle, smack it and go through. Get the boxes up top then jump down below for another wall to break. Go inside and grab the slate to start a fight. Kill the crabs and use confetti on the door to get a small cafe. You can get a full heal inside for 100 coins and the place is maximum levels of comfy. Now head back to the big slate and start the puzzle. I did a video on how to complete it but the easiest way is to just spend 3k coins and have the game complete it for you. Here is what it is supposed to look like.
