The Hall of Epochs

In order to fire the arrow, you need to be standing in a specific spot to open the keyhole
on the pillar. The update hints that the location needs to be somewhere with a clear view
of the pillar. If you start exploring the room, another quest update will let you know
when you're approaching the right area.
The correct location for firing the arrow is blocked by walls and locked gates. The
intended way for you to reach the location is to lower the walls by activating a hidden
Push Block. If you head south from the main room , you'll find a Push Block on the balcony
— this doesn't affect the walls in the main room, but it does open a hidden door.
Continuing past the hidden door leads to a new zone (also named the Hall of Epochs). The
Push Block you're looking for is at the end of this zone (it's the cyan dot behind the
Boss chest). Returning to the main room will reveal that the walls have dropped away
(freeing some undead) and the gates have opened. If you didn't bring along a bow, make
sure to get a bow at this point: one of the four undead who was just freed is guaranteed
to be an archer who carries a bow.
It is also possible to reach without lowering the walls, if you have sufficiently high
acrobatics skill, for example by jumping across from one of the nearby ledges. If you
byp*** the walls, you will still receive the proper quest update when you step on the
pressure plate, and will therefore be able to advance the quest.
When you stand on the pressure plate, the keyhole in the Keyhole Pillar is opened up; if
you step off the plate, the keyhole closes again. Only the player's presence on the plate
triggers the keyhole. Other creatures or corpses will not be recognized. Therefore, you
need to be standing on the plate when you fire the Arrow of Extrication. Careful aiming is
necessary because you only have one Arrow of Extrication, and it is a long distance shot.
You can practice with regular arrows; watch for the puff of dust that indicates where the
arrow hits if it contacts the statue. If you miss with the Arrow of Extrication, you can
also go retrieve it and try again (if you can find the arrow). In any case, you probably
want to save before making an attempt. Aim at the cross formed at the hilt of the statue's
sword, or possibly slightly lower, where the top of the statue's hands come together
(note: This depends on your Marksman skill. Those with high skill will want to aim lower.
At 100 Marksman, you can virtually aim straight at the keyhole). If you listen carefully,
an accurate shot produces a sound of metal on metal, even if a regular arrow is used.
