Skyrim - Arkngthamz

10 replies 2728 views Edited Mar 19, 2013

Hey everyone, this is my first post, so I apologize if I'm going about this the wrong way.  I know I'm late to the party on this, as with all ps3 users lol, but I can't seem to solve the tonal lock within Arkngthamz.  I looked up the correct pattern, but the traps always go off after i hit the 3rd switch.  That wouldn't be a huge problem if i could just open the door after killing everything, but I can't open any doors.  Does anyone have any info on this?  Is it a possible ps3 glitch?  Thanks!!

Yeah, I read that earlier and hit the resonators in that order.  It still sets off the traps lol.  Thank you for the response, though!!  I hope this doesn't happen to you when you get there! lol

I was able to get through the doors. The two side ones are the ones that open up. Did you try trial and error? If the third one sets off the traps maybe try hitting the other ones. maybe the sequence you read had a misprint.

Yeah I went through trial and error many times to no avail.  After killing all the enemies that popped out and hitting all the tonal resonators, the doors still will not open.  Looked up the correct pattern on youtube even lol.  Ohhhh well, I'll just have to skip it.  Thank you for the reply!!

Just to let you all know, I survived Arkngthamz and emerged largely unscathed.

I won't insult any intelligences by putting the tonal solution here. As you've already stated, YouTube has done that already, but it can work.

I was doing the "Lost of Ages" quest and I was going through Arkngthamz and when I got to the tonal lock I started noticing issues. The first time I tried the puzzle I put together the two clues and decided to guess the order for the last two parts of the puzzle. The first time I got it wrong and fought off the spiders, then I noticed that the resonators didn't reset from the mistake so i shot the last remaining resonator and fought off the spheres. Unable to figure out the issue I reverted to a previous save and tried again. This time I got it right, the quest objective says; 'claim the treasure of Arkngthamz', but the doors won't open. I then realized that none of the doors inside this place would open for me. So as of right now I've just decided to give up on this quest until the next update and hope it gets fixed.
