Gauntlet bridge puzzle

#1locklearPosted 11/7/2009 6:53:58 PM
Ok, I hate this kind of crap in RPGs. Tooling along, enjoying the plot, then a blatant puzzle, of the sort you might find made of plastic at a dollar store. It's a glorified slide puzzle. I have no fun with them, and I'm lousy at them. Anyone mind providing the solution before I relegate Dragon's Age to the trash for immersion annihilation? I'd been enjoying it up to now.

It took me 1 min to figure out. It's not hard...

Just keep moving your party members to tiles that make the bridge appear & light up.

.....

Move 2 or 3 characters around the stones until they make a solid brick to step on. Repeat this process until you formed a whole solid bridge for your party to walk on.

The puzzles in this game are really easy. The riddles are even easier.

Unhelpful. I know what the goal is, and I realize that putting characters on different blocks results in different parts being solid. After two hours, I'm not interested in further trial and error, thanks. I'm glad it wasn't hard for you two. Puzzles are not my forte, and they aren't fun. I'm not interested in "try more."

Shame that you can't figure out something an 8 year old would be able to.

there's screenshots of the solution towards the bottom of the Sacred Urn page...


and, if you couldn't figure that puzzle out... wow.... just.... wow.

No offense, but all you have to do is:

-leave at least one character free to walk across the bridge
-have the others walk around until the bridge lights up. There are two "stages" that it has to light up. The first stage is kind of opaque while the second stage is solid. Keep walking around until the whole bridge is solid.
-have one person walk across.

It is, isn't it? Lucky for me reality doesn't actually contain such rubbish puzzles, and I'm able to get on quite well. Nonetheless, I'm not asking for commentary on the puzzle's difficulty.

Perhaps you should play something simpler, like tetris.
