My Third Vessel is practically stuck on the roof where you learn the shout. What can I do? I've watched videos and for people it is usually on the ground... --- its only a matter of time before a cop runs over a bunch of pedestrians and unloads a hundred rounds into a suspect then blames his actions on playing GTA.
The bars in front of the Word Wall are removed as a result of the player "reaching over" the pedestal of the third Vessel to pick it up, not the acquisition of the Vessel itself. As a result, if the Vessel is sent flying during combat the Wall will seem to be unreachable and bugged. To fix it and lower the spikes just jump over the pedestal --- TEATIME! B:^o
