Heavenly Sword Walkthrough Ch 2 - Fire Fight
There are a bunch of archers past the door. Hold down L1 to use your light attack. Keep light attacking all the way to the archers.
Your light attack will deflect the arrows that are coming at you.
Once you are done with the archers continue on down the path. Now you've got a really tricky door to open. You need to ring a gong that's behind the pink flowered tree.
Climb up the nearby ladder and stand in front of the shield box.
The key to opening the door is to bounce the shield you have thrown off of the statue's shield and then into the gong that is across from it.
This is impossible to do if you do not hold the R1 button and afterTouch your shield to the gong.
