    Hi,
    Went to check out the New Shaminian Hills scene.
    I have some questions about the puzzles...

    I have worked out that I need to find some "Tomes", but have searched the bookcases & killed a lot of NPC's but none found as yet. I am hoping someone can offer some clues as to where they are?

    Also, Have got some Shamanian Crystals & assume they are used after we get through the barriers, which are probably opened once I find the "tomes"?

    Am I on the right track?

    I will be posting a solution to the puzzle in that thread soon. But here are some hints in the meantime:

    1. there are 3 Tomes
    2. each tome is in a coffin
    3. you must place the Shaminian crystals in the Power coupling wheels and rotate the wheels
    4. when the Power couplings are in the correct orientation you can gain access to each coffin
    5. place all 3 tomes at the shrine to get your reward.
    6. there are two shrine-like areas in the scene, each shrine rewards you with something different . So choose your shrine wisely!

    hmm... i noticed the spelling tomb, which i though was a bit strange, but then again it is in a coffin ;)

    Looks like the puzzle may be bugged.
    I solved it on QA, and solved it again this morning on public release, but I could only solve it once in public release; thereafter the central coffin part of the puzzle would not reset.
    So, I could not reproduce the solution. I am not sure if the central coffin is now locked for everybody or just for me.
    I will come back tonight and see if resets....but it may be a bug.

    Still could not get the last coffin open again. I even had another player try.
    I think it may be bugged...so i reported it here.
    Or perhaps...i do not have a reliable solution to the puzzle :eek:

    Okay, i figured out the issue. I am not sure if the puzzle is bugged, incomplete, or if the behavior is intended...but I have a solution. I will post it later today.

    A bit of lore in Shaminian Hills would be great. The place has no clues, no hints, that stand out. We need lore. It makes the area seem very empty which does not need to happen. It has potential but needs to be fixed.
