    Default Mysterious lever in The Scoundrel's Run

    For years I have been ignoring that lever, but now I'm actually curious about it's purpose

    It's located near quest entrance and is locked (can't unlock it, can't use it).

    That key is for the gates to the final piece of the Turtle.

    Saves you having to have a hireling {or second player} to turn the valves.


    My guess is that the Locked Lever at the start is there strictly for Flavour purposes and is probably meant to be the lever that works the lift you enter and exit by.

    If some poor soul dies in the earth elemental ambush, and rest of group is locked out, it would seem you could never go through the elementals to get one part, but that lever drops the barriers. I know, just another useless, old quest mechanic.

    If the above is true then the Devs simply placed that lever in the wrong place!

    Because unless you knew that's what it was for there's no way you'd think to use it at that point!

    The Earth Elemental fight is a long long way from that lever - Yes you could drop down to it but again there's simply no way players who didn't know that that's what that lever is for would think of it under that circumstance.

    Thanks man! +1

    Just tested it:
    - the lever can be used only when elementals are active
    - the lever can't be used after elementals are dead (and the barriers drops after they are dead)
    - you can use that lever many times to deactivate/activate the barriers as long as at least one elemental is alive
    - it doesn't mater if a player is between the two barriers, also doesn't matter if he is alive
