Traken-4 legacy how to do it

this is a puzzle but a simmple puzzle

WHAT is the puzzle

its a light on light off which means if you hit the tower is will ether turn on or off

the other part is in it the wire at the top of the tower will tell you which other towers it will affect 2 ether but turning it on or off

diogram from bird eye view

numbers= towers
zzz= spaces(just there to make it nicer
lines=wires

xxxxxxgun
xxxxx/
xxxx/
1---2---3
|zzz|zzz|
4---5---6
|zzz|zzz|
7---8---9

line are the wires

lets say all are off or all are on
1. if you hit 1 then it will turn 124 on
2. if you hit 2 then it will turn 123 and 5 on
3. if you hit 3 then it will turn 236 on
4. if you hit 4 then it will turn 145 and 7 on
5. if you hit 5 then it will turn 2456 and 8 on
6. if you hit 6 then it will turn 356 and 9 on
7. if you hit 7 then it will turn 478 on
8. if you hit 8 then it will turn 578 and 9 on
9. if you hit 9 then it will turn 689 on

towers 1/3/7/9 will turn on/off 3 towers each
towers 2/4/6/8 will turn on /off 4 towers each
towers 5 will turn on/ off 5 towers each

if one or more off or on

lets say 1 and 2 are on

if hit 1 then 12 will turn off and 4 ill turn on
if hit 2 then 12 will turn off and 3 4 will turn on
if 3 is hit then 2 turn off and 34 turn on

rules to live by while doing this puzzle

1st the most important rule only one will hit the panels cause if you get 2 or more people hiting it it will make it nere impossable to complete
2nd rule 3 people are better then 2 can 2 will clear trash while the other person will work on the towers
3rd rule dont read the light saying which is on or off read the panels lit=on not lit =off
4th rule plan plan plan not 1 steps head like 2 or 3 because it will get you to understand the wire with out looking up to see where the wire conect to the towers

IT WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR EACH PERSON FOR WHAT TOWER IS ON/OFF WHEN YOU ARE IN THE AREA thx for that info FateckMeranis i fergot about it


important notes

try makeing towers that will only affect 3 towers off (iff choose tower 1)
then dont touch towers 1/2/4 and try to avoid touching towers 2/4/5/3/7

which means try and work with 6/9/8


IF tower all all off
then hit the towers in this order
1/3/7/9/5

if all towers are on turn 1 off then back on or turnthen all off useing 1/3/7/9/5 them doing it that way agian

if you want me to try the other tower just send it to the fourm here and i will try and help you out


good way to turn them on is work on turn 1/3/7/9 on and haveing 2/4/5/6/8 off then hit the center to turn them all on

another way is to work for getting 1/2/3/4/6/7/8/9 to be on and 5 off then hit in this order
5 then 2/4/6/8 then 5 agian

Quoted this from another website. "Keep in mind that there is NO way for you to find the "Answer/order to trip them" on the net, becuase its allways going to be different"

But If I am correct the Gun is at #9

Oh and btw, It took me 5.93 hours to do this because of people messing with me. (New Record?)

Here is a way to solve it if you have problems - I got this off a post on another site.

Enjoy if you get frustrated.

Ok so this is the easy way

Put your back to the gun #1 is the tower right in front of you #2 is the next outside tower connected to #1 - #3 is the last outside tower connected to #2

Keep in mind this is layed out like your numerical keypad on your keyboard

So that means #4 is to the left of you and the gun just north of the elite and add-on #5 and #6 to follow

#7 is ------- yes the tower between the 2 elites just left of the gun which means #8 and #9 are the two other outside towers #9 being the group of 4 npcs

go to this link - http://www.ueda.info.waseda.ac.jp/~n...out/index.html

Select 3x3 - select edit - Red is off and blue is On

Look at whats on and whats off - looking at the 3x3 grid

123
456
789

Once you select all of that click play then solve go and click on the towers that show 1's from the site and your done.

this took me around 10 minutes to solve while my group mates kept the baddies off my back

I came across this stupid heroic doing another one. Normally i have to solo the 2+ heroics due to the time i play. This is the case this time since im the only player on Balmorra at the time. This one is not worth the headache and frustration for a lousy 6k exp. There are no real indicators that tell you the tower is powered up or not, at least that i could see. This quest should be scrapped or put up some real indicators that show your towers are powered up.

There are indicators and the posts get illuminated. However, this puzzle seems overly complicated by not having an obvious pattern. Maybe the quest should be called after a math formula as a hint to figuring it out by hand or something because using a program or doing it by luck is not how its meant to be done.

I dont mind learning some math even if it is a bit complicated to solve some puzzles, but dont expect me to create the mathematical formula or figure out which one to use by looking at the environment alone.

In class we mostly look at numbers and not the environment to apply math. Which is unfortunate but at best its a word problem and not something as abstract.

Anyways, I might try to do it later when someone offers a mathematical formula to apply to this.
