Jailbreaker[edit | edit source]

Items needed: 1 air rune and 1 law rune for Telekinetic Grab
  • Go to the northeast of Camelot Castle, outside of the castle bush borders
  • Search the statue.
  • Talk to Merlin. (Chat 3123)
  • Reach the vent on the northern wall, it should trigger a cutscene in which the imprisoned knights lift Merlin out. Do not reach for the vent again afterwards.
    • If you don't see a cutscene, then talk to Merlin again and exhaust all options.
  • Cast Telekinetic Grab on the guard fixing his hair outside your cell door.
    • Drop trick will work here if you would like an extra hairclip.
  • Use the hairclip on the metal door.
  • Complete the puzzle.
    • To complete this puzzle, you must set each of four tumblers to the correct height. The most foolproof way to do this (although not necessarily the quickest) is to set all tumblers to the lowest height and try the lock.
    • If a tumbler shows a green circle, do not change that tumbler anymore.
    • Ignore blue and red circles. For all the other tumblers, increase the height by one and try again.
    • Continue until the lock unlocks. This method will take at most six attempts.
  • DO NOT LEAVE YET
