I sneaked through the coastal cenote into the southeast part of the world much earlier than I was supposed to (even before the 2nd trial; I love to explore, for example, I unlocked all fast travel points in the north before I even had the broom :)). So I stumbled on this particular treasure vault much before I learned the Transformation spell. I quickly figured that I have to checkmate the black king, but couldn't do it whatever I tried… :))))
Boi i have neeeever played chess before so i dont know the rules or how to solve it 🗿
I got a chair and it turn into a knight
Was spent an way to long on this puzzle to only get some base stupid glasses.
I entered and there's not that piece to transform
Thank you! Made it very easy for me
Guys, your piece will be random when u enter, i had it transform into a Rook
I just did a different chess puzzle and the king placement that worked was bishop checking king from adjacent square, while unpinned… So not really a true checkmate.
Thanks great video, didn't know I had to use transformation I thought it was a just a fat pawn.
OMG! Thanks… I broke my head here and had to research how to solve this, thanks!
I’m playing on ps5. Instead of a pot, I have a chair and it turned into a knight.
OMG thanks alot sir <3
As an American I would have never been able to solve this one
I've found the cave, came across this video but I also have the problem that there is no object to transform on the chess board.
Edit: Restarting the game helped. The object spawned next to the coffin.
Edit²: I didnt get a bishop, I got a Rook. So this cave seems to be very random.
Wasn't the king already in a checkmate position?? Assuming the piece in front of him was a queen.
All that just to give you a fkn green??
Thank you very much!
That's a bishop? I thought the knights were KNIGHTS but no… the knights are kings. Weird
Knowing to use Transform helped, but my puzzle was a bit different. Got it with some experimentation, although logic would have probably worked if I tried to work out all the chess moves.
False, it's the white spot close to the King one tile towards the chest from the grey tile. Maybe they patched it, IDK.
Idk how to play chess so this is a nightmare lol
This is closest we’ll come to having an actual Wizard chess feature.
i dont get a pot, i get a chair send help
Edit: i know NOTHING about chess
Edit 2: figured it out by sheer luck
Since when does Wingardium Leviosa transform?
It's randomized, I had a Knight piece for mine.
So the first time I came to this location it was a vase, so not knowing what to do I thought of just breaking it with depulso but the vase was launched into oblivion and was lost, I restarted from an earlier save and when I came back it was a chair so it’s just random has nothing to do with console because I play on Xbox
I don’t have a white pot in the room?
Im in the same cave and have a pot turning into a knight. I believe it’s different for some people.
Mine was a little different… my cauldron turned intro a rook, so I had put place it in the last row.
Mine is different. I have a Bishop piece that moves diagonally. I can't control the other pieces except for my Bishop.
Figured it out. I had to use transformation on it to transform it to a different piece then put it on the board accordingly to kill the king. Who would have thought the original piece would not work. These Devs and their weird mind games.
Did all this for common grey quidditch gloves
It´s not puzzle, it´s stupid. In chess game is not possible kick one figure with another.
Can you solve this puzzle without transformation spell?
I love how they have really cool puzzles followed by really lame loot 😂
My chess pieces are different. 20 minutes in and I still can't figure out where to place the damn piece at
