Stuck in Remote Cave puzzle

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I'm stuck at the "6 lights" part. I've been lightning 6 of them (looking at my notes 7 don't seem possible, and the map does specify 6), but it doesn't seem to accomplish anything. There is a hidden switch, which opens a door behind stalagmites, but I can't reach it. Help?

You need the hidden switch to open the door. You need exactly 6 of the 7 lights to remove the stalagmite to reach the door.

The stalagmite doesn't seem to be removed? I've tried every light except 1, and every light except 7, none of these worked.

 

edit: goddamnit thought blue meant "light on". Nevermind...

Worry not, I had the exact same problem. They have that smoke-like effect when blue, so its an easy mistake to make.

I am stuck at previous puzzle. I tried to look at the map and move in all possible paths - nothing works. I had no problems in the first trilogy with that. What am I doing wrong? How to pass the room after room with the crates and before the room with lights - please help!

I'm stuck at the 'pathfinding' puzzle too... what do you mean 'orientation'? There's only one place where you can START your path, so it's pretty obvious what direction the map's supposed to be read in. Plus, there's a huge triangle inscribed on the floor, there, to match the large triangle on the map. It all seems pretty clear, really, except for the bit where the shown path doesn't work. When I follow it, I trigger an 'acid goo' trap halfway through, and if I finish it... well, nothing happens, at all.

The map is rotated 90 degrees from the cave floor. So if you move in the direction on the map instead of going south on the floor you hit traps.

...ah! I finally figured it out. It wasn't the rotation of the map - that much is painfully obvious since you really aren't given a choice when it comes to where to start. Rather, the layout of the room had tricked me into assuming that every arrow on the map represented TWO steps, since otherwise, the bit where there's just ONE arrow would see you walking into a pillar. Except, as it turns out, the actual path takes you through both of the points where a pillar is mysteriously missing from the regular pattern...

 

Assumptions are dangerous things.

Figured it out myself? but thanks a lot anyways! I also assumed each arrow on the halberd map to be TWO steps! But it is justONE step, aaarg! - so simple! And so utterly unobvious - that's spiderweb for you!

Hey guys please help!

 

In the first puzzle in the Remote Cavern have moved the crate onto the rune but how do I look inside it? If I click on it it just moves off the rune again. Same if I press 'u' then 'a'. If I open inventory it just shows me items on the floor.

 

Am sure there's a ridiculously obvious answer but can't for the life of me figure it out.

I think you have to Examine it while standing next to it.

Thanks! don't remember seeing a dialogue or anything but kept wandering between crate and portcullis and at some point it just opened 

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

There appears an opening stone in the inventory that you got from the crate when it's on the rune that you needed to open the portcullis.
