I think this should be helpful to those who need visual aids :) Added it to the top of this page for faster reference.

On a side note. if you get to it in the middle of someone else's failure, there is a pattern to how the buttons work. When you click on a button, all the shields are pulled towards that button on that row and pushed away on the other 2 rows. This goes for all the buttons. So, for example, if you click on the bottom middle button, the middle row will rotate down and the left and right row will rotate up.

Hope this helps

If you catch the puzzle when it is completely reset, it can be done in 3 clicks...

The setup should look like: (Large = large/long shield, M = medium shield, S = small shield)

Click the leftmost button of the bottom row, followed by the bottom button of the right column, followed by the middle button of the left column

It says "Shadewall Keep" in the description currently, where it SHOULD read "Shadefallen Keep"
Plaque is located at 4539, 2380

Does it ever reset? I must have gotten here when someone was in the middle of it, and I can't solve it. Does it ever reset to the beginning again?

If the puzzle is messed up you can reset it this way:

Get the Large Shield and two small shields into the left most colum. The position doesn't matter at this point.

Once you have the Large Shield and the 2 small shields in there, use the button above that column to change the position of the Large Shield until it is topmost in the left column. Check on the position of the small shield in column 2 and 3. If it is the 'beginning' position you're lucky and can follow the solution as described. If the are not in the beginning position use only the buttons above or below colmun 2 and 3 to adjust. Just move one shield once. Then go back to column 1 and adjust the postion of the Large Shield until it is in the top most position. Check if you now have the beginning position, if not, rinse and repeat until you have the beginning position.

Good Luck!

Thank you. I have corrected the spelling, which you could have done, too. :) This is a Wikibase. The "Edit this page" button would have put you in the editor. :)
