 Alien31655 years ago#1 I'm fairley early on in chapter 3 and I'm up to the "For a higher cause" quest. I came across this golem thing guarding a chest with 4 runes of fire in each corner of the room. Could anyone help me?

There aren't that many combinations so you can just brute force it.http://img704.imageshack.us/img704/297/keyboardwut.jpg SaffronGhost5 years ago#4There's a piece of paper in a house in "town" that has the order.So many failures. blue_devil_995 years ago#5The four runes always mean:Sky (diamond with slash through it)Art/beauty (looks like a harp)Animal (S-shaped snake symbol)Time (hourglass)In the same room there is always a bookstand. Interacting with it reveals a three line verse. Interact with the runes in the order they appear in the verse. For example:Three field mice // dance in a circle at dusk // stars are like grainmeans the correct order is:animal (mice), art (dance), time (dusk), and finally sky (stars)This is also explained in the quest section of a certain FAQ on this site :) #6(message deleted) Wongass5 years ago#7I hope these pics could help, the Orange numbers would denote the sequence:Rune area 1 (this is the first one seen if you take Iorveth's path)http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/5786/runeroom1iorvethpath.jpgRune area 2 (Golem Room)http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/3945/golemruneroom.jpgRune Area 3 (Amphitheater)http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/3383/amphitheater.jpg
