    I'm doing the Final Descent Quest and can't get the magical sealed door to open.

    I have the blade, it's equipped and got the ribbon on both sides to move twice, but I can't get either of them to move the final third time to open the door.

    Anyone done this and can help me out? I'm seriously frustrated at the moment and just want to get the bleep out here!

    are you making sure you're doing the right swing at the right areas? the first two are horizontal, after you hit them the next one will be vertical.

    if you're hitting them correctly, as in hold R while doing a strife left or right to do a horizontal blast, and standing still for a vertical one and they still wont move, try reloading the game, or even turning of the system and turning it back on

    Yes, I got the first two times OK--horizontal, then vertical (right? Seems like a hour ago)--but this is where I am:

    <image removed due to discourteous linkage--enjoy your broken img icon, whoever>

    I can't seem to get the right movement to move the ribbons from these positions.

    I have been pretty save-happy on this quest so I can try reloading, but if I do that I'll have to stop here and try tomorrow. I'm just too tired and frustrated right now.

    Are you aiming so that the energy wave hits the ribbons? I got stuck on this and then watched a YouTube video of someone opening the door. It was very helpful.

    Ugh, I can't get a power blast from the sword doing horizontal power attacks like I did the first round, only with the vertical power attacks, which clearly aren't the right move. Looks like a glitch, alright. :mad:

    Yeah, I'm aiming at them. But as I said above, no power blast is coming from the sword like they were with the first time they moved.

    Where's this You Tube vid? Maybe seeing it done will help me be least pissed off than I am right now.

    Oh, had to add this funny bit: I initially figured out how get them to move by accidentally hitting my follower Marcurio with a horizontal power attack--did him some awful damage, which is why I have him waiting far back in the pic I took. :D

    OH PRAISE THE NINES!

    I was too obsessed to let this be, so I reloaded from the last save right before I jumped into the pit and got the damn door to open like slicing butter with a hot knife (hey I have spent about 40 minutes practicing those freaking 2H power attacks!)

    And I am walking out that freaking door now, thank you very much....and yes, remembered to fetch Marcurio--that would be awful if I left him there waiting for me! XD

    Thanks for the help, guys.

    ...It is now 2017. I still can't get this damn door open. I've tried everything that everyone else has tried. Deleting mods, un-favoriting them, reloading from a save before, standing in every which way possible. The ribbon from the sword STILL does not work. Is there any other way to bypass this door?

    Is it just not power attacking for you, or is it giving you the wrong ones? If you're walking side to side while you hold your attack, you should be able to change the direction of the beam, to cross over the lit area of each segment of the arch.
