    Over the years I've gotten hundreds of questions that ask about hints, help or solutions to certain puzzles.

    I am now going to create this thread where anyone can participate to either ask or answer to people's questions for puzzles in Sunken City. That way we can have a dedicated thread where all anyone is going to talk about is puzzles and how to solve them. As usual, giving hints is preferred over giving straight-up solutions.

    Hi,

    im stuck in front of the first gate (south entrance)
    After finding the peon in the jungle on the east side of camp, and not being able to enter the dungeon on the west side (lvl 14 required), i think im supposed to enter the south gate.

    Hint: an eerie feeling fills you as you approach the entrance which appears to be centuries old.

    Me: wuttt?!?

    In the nearby forest there is an already pressed switch. Your inspect ability can be used on certain objects in the environment, including that switch.

    Hello guy. I have dropped this map for a while. Today, while killing a random creep, I got a red key, what is that key for?

    Did you kill the council to the right of the runes? They should drop explosives you need to get past the door after Gentulon.
    If you used the explosives from the council in the Vault you need to find a key on a table close to Harris and use that to unlock a different rolling stone door, inside is another set of explosives.

    Close to the 4 runes on the ground you found, there are 3 bosses that you have to fight altogether (Deathlord, Maiden of Pain and Warlord Bul'thos). Warlord Bul'thos drops an Explosive which can be used at the Massive Ruined Gate east of Gentulon. Iff you already used the Explosive, follow @Senneria's insturctions.
    All of those you will find later in the game.

    we did kill the councill, we got the explosives and used them inside the vault.
    The key we found on the table next to haris we used to open "the Garden"? cant seem to find another key to open a rolling door.

    A Bookshelf next to the Arcane Wares shop (close to the Garden) speaks of a key dropped inside of a Well within the Grove. That's what you need. Go to the Arcane Wares shop and inspect the Bookshelf next to him.

    Hello there,
    I have a problem, I already used up explosives, which were hidden behind the rolling door. But I can't find another explosives to open the gate under council. I did kill whole coucil, but didn't get any explosives.. :/ Is there a way to obtain them somewhere else?

    There is no other place. The 'Council' drops one and there is another one behind the rolling gate.

    Well, I guess I can't progress further since Council didn't drop me explosive
    There is not another way to open the "firmly stuck Massive door", is there?

    This boss fight has been in the game for over 3 years. Not once has it ever been seen or heard that the Explosive didn't drop.
    I can only assume that Warlord Bul'thos (who drops the explosive) was killed behind a column or an arch that blocks the view to the Explosive, but you are simply not seeing it.
    It's impossible for the Explosives not to drop from the boss fight.
