Lexiconary?

Post by gawainzl » Thu Oct 16, 2014 6:34 pm

Can someone give me a hint for the puzzle to open the Lexiconary door in the archives?
What I'm thinking:

I'm the strongest: Rage Potion?
I'm alive: Resurrection Potion?
I can walk: Speed Potion?
I can't fly: ??

Haven't solved it yet, but I guess it's related to the figurines you find around hte Lexiconary area? (I have found 2 figurines so far... skeleton (i'm alive?) and crowern (i can't fly?)

You are correct. If you complete, explore, and do everything on that floor. You'll find yourself with 4 Figurines. Wonder what those are for...

Thanks. I was underequipped for the rest of the archives area so I didn't clear it out.

The one I haven't been able to work out is the Rock, Scroll, and Sword puzzle. I put a rock, a sword, and a scroll on the shelves. Not sure what else it's asking for...

For sword scroll rock think rock paper scissors.

I managed to get all the figurines now but I can't figure out how to open the gate. EDIT: Turns out it's like to like.

Eagle is alive, Ogre is strong, Snail can't fly, and Skeleton can walk.

If you really can't get it:

Think of what beats what in rock paper scissors. Rock=beaten by scroll, Scroll=beaten by sword, Sword=beaten by rock.

Hint:

It's matching to "like". Use process of elimination
Solution

I am strongest=Ogre, I can walk=Skeleton, I am alive=Crowern, I can't fly=Snail

Any hints for getting the eagle statute? I got the other three, but I can't figure this puzzle out. I've got the middle switch pressed, but I can't figure out how to move the teleporter to the others.

On getting eagle statue:
SpoilerShow
Think about the eagle statue one like Portal, momentum (and direction) is conserved when teleporting.

Wow, my brain completely passed that one by. I probably would have had an easier time if they said "rock paper scissors" instead of listing the items...
