Hey guys, looking for some help. I'm going insane and about ready to quit playing (noooooooooo!). I'm stuck on the Elder Knowledge quest. I'm at the end of Alftand dungeon area where you activate push the button and the spiral staircase drops open in the floor. The problem is that it won't activate and therefore the staircase won't open. This is a main quest and therefore not skippable... Every walkthrough and youtube video I've watched shows the person just walking up and activating it...ain't no thang. For me I'm just staring in disbelief (open damn you!!). I've already completed "Transcribing the Lexicon". I've done all necessary quests up to that point. Is there an item that has to go in there that I don't know about???
Honestly I'm pulling my hair out and it's putting a bad taste in my month for this incredible game.
