There will be two pieces of stone blocks, one on top of the other. To solve the Merlin Trial puzzle with the symbol cubes, you need to cast Flipendo on the stone that sits on the top. Doing so will cause the stone to flip over, revealing another symbol. What you need to do is align the symbol cube on top perfectly with the one that it rests on. Also, keep in mind that the cube on top can be rotated in any direction, depending on the side of the stone you cast Flipendo from.

There will be a total of three symbol cube pillars around the Merlin Trial that you will need to solve. The fastest way to solve the puzzle is to first rotate the cube with Flipendo such that it matches the symbol on the bottom, regardless of orientation. Then, move over to the side of the cube and cast Flipendo to rotate it and match the orientation of the symbol at the bottom. Once each pillar is complete, vines will grow around it, indicating its completion.
