Underwater Caves, Broken Switch

Postby june012006 » Wed Jul 05, 2017 2:06 am

Every time I attempt to activate the Southern lever in the underwater caves I get a message saying "The water has caused the switch to deteriorate. You might need to repair it." I've got a repair level of 50, and I have tried both the vanilla Master repair hammer, and the Superior repair hammer from I&F (only one in the inventory with each attempt). I was able to successfully repair the bridge to the holy island, but this switch won't activate. Am I missing something?

You may already have activated it. Can you get to,the Abbey from there?
Do you have the quest to find Aegon in another part of that area? There are a few switches there. They are all related to one or another of those objectives.

Though I originally entered directly, I have since entered from the Abbey. Is Aegon the last monk? That's currently my only active quest. I've already defeated Ragnar, and I've completed at least two dozen side quests.

No, Aegon is a water god. It sounds to me like you might have done all you can in the Underwater caves. Check your quest register to see if you finished the Bring good news quest-bring Aegon the good news that he's going to be an uncle. If you freed the two monks in the pit, you need the brother in the Abbey basement. You need high stealth to reach him.

Where is the basement? Is that where Ragnar and the rest of the Vikings are?

Related to this area - I'm still trying to figure out the combination to get through this quest and find a way to talk to Aegon. Can you help please?

You just need repair skill greater than 17.

As it is a broken switch, it will probably keep asking you to repair it even after you did. What are you trying to do there that you can't. There are other switches there. Are you trying to find Aegon or trying to get into St. Aidan's?
