How do I solve the emerald dragon claw puzzle?

  1. At reach water rock where you have to forge the gauldur amulet, I see the puzzle on the claw and it reads bear, fish, snake yet it won't open for me. Am i missing something or is it glitched? I've noticed the snake on the bottom rung is upside down. Does that mean anything?

  2. Additional Details:
    I tried it backwards but I couldn't get a snake at the top nor a bear at the bottom. its def the emerald claw at the first one cuz i picked it up all a dead "adventurer." Any other ideas?

  1. Sounds like you have the claw backwards. Try snake fish bear.

  2. The first door in that quest uses the emerald claw, if that doesn't work then it may be glitches for you, if you are trying to open the second door with the emerald claw if wont work because you actually need a different claw, I thinks it's the ebony claw, it sucks because it's in a entirely different cave.

  4. Easy way to figure out the claw puzzles is look at the claw in your inventory and you can make out the alignment of the gliphs on the underside of the claw itself, Sometimes the bottom gliph is hard to makeout cause the claw is tilted but it helps alot knowing the top 2

  5. At Reachwater rock the first door uses the Emerald Dragon Claw and the order of the glyphs from top to bottom is bear, whale, snake. The second door uses the Ivory Claw and the order from top to bottom is hawk, hawk, dragon. Anyone who tells you that a different claw is required is plain wrong. If you don't have the ivory claw I believe it is found in Dead Men's Respite west of Morthal.

  6. Correction, you find the ivory claw in the first dungeon of the quest; Folgunthur.
