This last game I killed the Griffin from Griffin's Bane in our first encounter, so he never flew off to the tower. Then I finished the Wyrmking's Ring. Exploring the empty tower I find that a door to the outside of the tower won't open. It's shut tight. Going around from the summit I get to a gate that's locked that also won't open. This means an entire section of the tower is blocked off from me, the area where the griffin trashes the floor. There's not a lot of good items there as I recall except some bladeleaf, but is there a way to get in there or do I need to wait for the next cycle?
I used to have an account in 2002, but Gamefaqs ate it.
