I have been stuck at trying to get to the tower.
Cant get close enough without passing right on by. Many tries at jumping out as far as possible from the rock. Any little hints to help please. Thanks <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" />

Whistler, i made it first try. I jumped straight out from the rock (i.e., not towards the tower), then swam with a full speed while gradually turning toward the tower so I could see it on the right of my field of view.

If you are overshooting, try angling more towards the tower in your swim.

Good luck.

Whistler, are you searching for the crabs out there? The reason I asked is that I've been through this sequence four different times ( blush ) and have never found a crab on the tower. Get rid of all the ones you can see and then check the radar in the middle of the lake--there is one blue dot at about the seven o'clock position which is the linking book; if you don't see any others, then you don't need to worry about swimming to the tower...

I, for one, did have one crab on the tower that I needed to chase off....

Whistler, make sure that you have your Caps Lock on when swimming so you're not just doing the dog paddle. wink

Jenny, I've replayed Ahnonay and this time there wasn't a quab at the tower so I didn't have to swim out there. thumbsup

But you did have to swim out there once, Arwen? The reason I ask is that it seems to me the crabs are in basically the same places every time--but I've reached the point where the whole Age is just one big blur!!!

I finally got past this part and on to the next section, when I suddenly had a screen blip and it threw me back to Relto! I'm afraid to log back in for fear I'll be back to the beginning again... <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" />

Jenny, because I already knew what was out there the first time I played through Ahnonay it wasn't necessary for me to swim out there fighting the current when a quab wasn't registering on the scanner. Missing a clue will not stop your progress. I did have to go back later on but I didn't have to swim there.

I'm sorry you're having problems with the game. I wonder what the problem could be. For me, it's played flawlessly except for a few minor bugs that didn't affect progressing in the game. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I did find a crab out on the tower. Maybe it's different for each of us? duh

I have a hunch that may be the case, Annie.

Arwen, I just went back and got past the place where I crashed before with no problem, so I don't know what happened...

Thanks all. If it isnt necessary to go to the tower, then I will just follow the wt from that point on. Maybe come back later and it will work.

Yay! Jenny. Hope you don't run into any more problems.

I'm thinking that it is different at times just like seeing Shroomie in Teledahn. You never know when or if she'll appear.

whistler, if the scanner shows two lit up blue indicators on the main island after you got rid of all the "quabs", you will have to swim out to the tower to get rid of the one there before you can continue on.

I had one crab on the tower island and couldn't make the swim to get him. Got all the others and gave up for awhile. When I went back to try again, that crab had moved to the 'mainland' and I never did have to do the swim through the currents. smile
There is a thread on it at URU Obsession.

Thanks for the link C'ris. Seems like linking out to Relto and back again or just waiting around can do the trick too. laugh

Don't you need to get to the tower to see the number reference?

I'm still so early in the game that I don't know if the number references are key to progress or just "nice".

If anyone really wants to get to the tower, I found that keeping your body parallel to the bubbles makes you swim out farthest. Or maybe I should say keeping your body so that the bubbles are the most parallel to themselves makes you swim out farthest. If the bubbles are slipping past your body in a stream, you're going with the current rather than striking out against it.

I think I'm just confusing matters more here.

Anybody else walked across the top of the waterfall?

My crab, it has three corners. Three corners has my crab. And had it not three corners. It would not be my crab.

Jenny -- I think the Ki face radar thing only registers living creatures on the land. If you see a blue dot by the linking book station, it's because YOU are standing by the linking book station. If you throw yourself in the water, the Ki face radar thing registers no blue dots.

Don't know what it registers when you're on the tower. Don't think you can see the Ki face radar thing when you're on the tower. Though if a crab registers on it when it's on the tower, I suppose YOU must register on it when you're on the tower.

Hmmm. If I somehow managed to get a crab to land on one of those rocks -- would it register?
