Korriban Tower of Hanoi Energy Pillar Puzzle - Kotor 1

Tomb of Naga Sadow Towers of Hanoi Puzzle

Inside the Tomb of Naga Sadow you'll come across 3 pillars with light rings around one of them (pictured above). This is Kotor's version of the Towers of Hanoi puzzle which requires you to move all of the lights from the pillar on the left to the pillar on the right. If you'd like a break down of the rules or how the puzzle works check out the computer terminal next to it.

For those of you confused by the computer terminal's explanation, I believe the wikipedia page linked above does a better job explaining how this puzzle works:

1. Only one disk may be moved at a time
2. Each move consists of taking the upper disk from one of the stacks and placing it on top of another stack or an empty rod
3. No disk may be placed on top of a disk that is smaller than it

On the wikipedia page you'll also find an awesome gif which actually shows you exactly how to solve this puzzle. We're going to be using the same exact steps shown in this gif to solve the puzzle, each step is written out below.
