Skara Brae Sewers - Blocked Gates (doors)

Post by benmillion »

This is my second time beating the game. I'm playing on Legendary.
The first time I was here, in the Catch Yadis phase pre Barrow of the Maiden, I didn't notice or pay attention to the two blocked gates with obvs treasure behind them.
I've solved the two-story block puzzle symmetry puzzles on both floors.
and like.
these gates are still blocked.
I don't see any actual way to unblock them.
and I've googled it.
and.
it's cruel.
I need that treasure.
which is probably like 20 gold. or some rotten food.
anyone else either stuck, (emotionally) on this, or notice. win the game of life

Prepare for your third playthrough, then, when the next patch--which changes some fundamental aspects of the game, is released...;) Be nice if it would come this month...;) Also looking forward to BT3.

After you have completed floor puzzle, move blocks to wall near stairs to form a bridge to flip stone button high on wall :D

Thanks for the info I did that and it open the blocked gate with the chest. However the crate gate is still blocked. How is that one opened?

I searched high and low trying to figure out how to get behind that same gate. My only thought is maybe the gemstones in the shape of an F (sorta) is a clue but you can't interact with it.

I tried every song of exploration in front of the gemstones. I opened the gate for the dwarven chest.
I tried breaking down just about every section of wall using Gaufain's Hammer.

My common sense tells me those crates have rotted food or coin in them.... but I must loot the shiny objects!!!
