I screwed up and didn't turn the wheel in the Brewery after I found the 2nd missing red spoke and now the bug has gotten me. Anyone know if I can actually finish the game without completing the Brewery mission?
Description of the bug:
The Dwarven Brewery has two levels. You must turn a wheel to raise an elevator that gets you from the top level to the bottom level. The wheel is missing two of it's spokes, and you must retrieve those to be able to descend to the lower level. If you attach the second spoke you come across, but leave the map without turning the wheel, the wheel will be missing a spoke when you return, and the spoke will no longer be in the level to collect. This means the wheel cannot be repaired and neither the elevator to the deeper brewery nor the gate to the other side of the mountain can be activated. This prevents further progress in the game.
Not without a patch, you have to start the game over as far as I remember from hearing other players who ran into the bug. Luckily, I never got it.
The bottom level of the brewery is where the Arcane Smelter is, without the Arcane Smelter you cannot create the Helmet you need to have 50 minions at once, which you might need for the last bosses.
You need to complete the brewery to kill the boss, I believe the levels are sequential to some extent.This post has been edited by FCTE: Aug 8 2007, 12:47 AM
