The only time we every had a pylon lock was when a N solved first, not sure what tier it was on .. 3rd I believe .. but after that one mess up (couple weeks back) we've stuck to the *south first rule*

I can attest to this since as a healer I am the solver on my side every run. (Ya I know debuff on HM - I just yell at a DPS when I have it)

I was more poking at the people who give advice along the lines of

tier 1 = left
tier 2 = left
tier 3 = right
tier 4 = left

Which is TOTALLY wrong. You just have to look at the pylons the see which way your supposed to turn each tier.
You play on HM or Nightmare?

Done NM 8 .. loot was buggy (Exotech drops lawl)

We run HM 16's every week, sometimes do reg 8's on off-nights to gear up alts / newbies.

Basically I've gone from Normal - Hard - Nightmare - Hard.

Funny how that works, we'd rather do hard and get loot than Nightmare and get boned !

<Edit>

I'm sure its been posted elsewhere but ... colour order is

Blue - Green - Red -Purple - White - Yellow.

Just look at the Pylon, work out lowest moves per tier .. click buttons.

NSSN just worked for us. Not sure if it was luck or not, but we bugged out three times before I read this.

NSSN or all south both will work. The consoles only ever seem to lock up after solving the 2nd or 3rd wheel and magically if you notice, either way you are solving south first for those wheels...which is the key.

The other issue people can have is if the 4th wheel only requires 1 spin, the console will be clickable but the wheel won't turn. You need to exit area and reset the zone in this case to get a new wheel combo. Skipping most of the trash will help make it a shorter re-clear.

I don't know how after about 50 threads complaining about HM/NM and people pointing out the workarounds/how to do it we still have threads popping up about it.

Solve in that order, ur welcome.
This doesn't always work. This is the pattern we use, and while it does work most of the time, it still goes un-clickable some of the time. A simple reset of the instance usually fixes the problem though.

Yes we know about the Debuff.....but the Consoles can bug out and wont get usable after beeing clicked(no more blueish glow) or the Wheels wont turn.

We tried it with N S S N but the when the Northern Pilon solved the 4th Wheel the Southern Wheel bugged out and wouldnt turn anymore.

So its another Bug infested encounter.....hooray

Read my post above...if the 4th Wheel only requires one turn the console will be clickable but the wheel won't turn. Exit area and reset the zone to get a new wheel combo. If the 4th wheel isn't only 1 spin, SSSS or NSSN doing optimal spins will work just fine.

You have to make sure that you clear all 4 levels of the south pylon before starting the north pylon.
