    I've gotten this one four times in two days. I've watched it vanish with not being close and working very hard on it...

    Any ideas?

    This is the closest I get to RESEMBLING the right side, in three moves:

    1st row - up
    4th row - up
    3rd row - up

    Then, I get stuck....

    If you had looked on uoguide before tellimg him to go there, you´d have seen that it is the only one without an answer.

    I´ve had it two times too. Have found no solution yet to it.

    Its not on UOGuide because JC and I couldn't figure it out after several days of trying. Same for the other one on there without a solution.

    If anyone has an answer to either, it would be appreciated. Those two might not be possible though...?

    Just so you're aware, this puzzle... and I would have to sit with it long enough to work with it... but this particular puzzle BREAKS the rules that apply to every other puzzle. I remember it clearly from the days of the Controller Towers... That puzzle was one I personally worked on in Felucca, and I finally said to myself, "Well, let's try this," and lo and behold it was solved, but it breaks one conventional rule that the other puzzles all follow flawlessly.

    As I recall, it's something to do with the creation of the green bar... like normally two blue and two red make a green, but in this case it's like two green and two red or maybe even four red... I don't remember exactly what it is, but as soon as I get the puzzle long enough, I'll work through it and let you know.

    I've had it twice now, but BOTH times I've had it, I still had the magic key on me from the triple puzzle room, and for some reason (reported as a bug) when that key poofs, it takes the puzzle board with it, and so I've not had the chance to work with it long enough.

    They're definitely all possible... I filled in the solution on the second to the bottom on UO Guide which had sat empty -- myself and Martyna worked on it together (she had the puzzle, I was actually working with a scrap of paper... hehe).

    Like I say, this one defies one of the basic rules in one of its final steps... I'm uncertain about the other solutionless one, but I have not yet encountered it either.

    Thanks for posting this. I got that one last night and tried the full 30 minutes!! At about 12 minutes I decided to look at uoguide, and of course, one of the last 2 left w/o a solution was that one.. So .. Back to the drawing board.. Hope someone gets it because I have to know what I was doing wrong..

    Haven't started on puzzles yet. But I was just checking as they are controller tower puzzles. Previously we got hints for skill in thievery and/or tinkering.

    Are we getting hints with these puzzles?

    Fifth time to get this puzzle. Fifth time I fail. I hope I'm not displaying my ignorance by working two and one half hours and still not getting it, but at this point, I'll concede that the puzzle has beaten me. I'll trade every reward I'd ever get from this infamous puzzle just to figure it out. I have five accounts by the way, three upgraded. Two more will be, so I could very well see this opponent MANY times in the future.

    Slickjack don't feel bad. I get to the point where I can match it but instead of green, my bar is red... =(

    I have gotten that bloody puzzle now 6 times. I´m so sick of it. I wonder if there even is a solution.

    Wow, this thread lasted a long time with out a troll. Thanks for showing us what UHALL is all about papa smurf. Trust me, I'm not lazy. And no where have I said anything about using a guide or website or cheat to find the answer. I've played this game for nine years, run a vendor house and I'm an emmissary in the largest guild on my shard. I work and play this game and I enjoy every minute of it. So before you go and assume you know me or anybody else, save yourself some time and jump off a bridge somewhere.

    Anyways, back to the POINT of this thread: I've had and WORKED on this particular puzzle for three solid hours. I consider myself fairly intelligent and have studied the habits of this puzzle and it certainly doesnt follow the same rules as the others.

    I'll disagree. They are tedious to some people (me lol). Also, societies laziness has more to do with physical activity than the in-game puzzle. I'd replace laziness with.... wanting everything but doing nothing, both problems in America.... even that is obviously a jump though.
