Drakensang: The River of Time
It's a puzzle. You have to study how each stone turns and causes the disc to turn with it, and figure out which turns of each stone will cause all the symbols to align.
Wait until you get to the Mosaic Puzzle....I was reading on another forum where a guy spent SIX HOURS on it and still hadn't completed it.
It took me less than an hour, but only because that type of puzzle is common in a lot of games these days....but it was still incredibly annoying. I hate these types of puzzles in RPG's.

East Elemental Bowl = Whirlweed
South Elemental Bowl = Firemoss
West Elemental Bowl = Oneberry
I did it after i matched the symbols from the stones and circle but still doesn't work.
So I dug deeper and it seems it didnt matter what direction the herb should be in, just gotta make sure each herb type matches with the symbol on the stones... like the toadtool mushroom should match with the stone with the triangle shape. They oneberry should match with the circle icon. Firemoss matches with the "eye" icon on the stone and the whirlweed should matches with the "curly equal" sign on the stone.
Now the hard part I struggled with was to match the stone with the circle in the order: North icon for stone and circle: circle. East stone/circle icon: "equal sign". West stone/circle icon: Triangle. Finally, south stone/circle icon: "eye icon".
The reason why I thought it was hard to move the stones because each stone randomly moves the circle clock wise and counter clockwise. First I thought that each stone moves the same direction but it seems each of them moves both directions randomly.
Overall, this game would be great without the stupid puzzles... I think an RPG game should stick with RPG elements... and leave the difficult puzzles to games like Tomb Raider.
