The mission was so awesome at this point, I stopped writing!  You guys just need to experience this!



Well, I had intended to let you guys figure out this part on your own, but too many requests for the ‘puzzle’ solution.

    Are the “Tyler freeborn” missions repeatable, or just one time events like the main story?

  • Jamie

    Repeatable, as long as u buy the game before the end of december or buy the dlc content after that for $5

  • grrr

    I hate trial and error puzzles. Why did you leave the solution out?

  • grrr

    There are 5 tires, I eventually blindy accidentaly stumbled upon the fkn solution, see previous post, the 2 closest to the edge should be dark, the other 3 lit up.

  • SinisterSaint

    OMG this mission was A M A Z I N G! The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn was outstanding!!!!

  • Painzer

    How the heck do you do Tier 3? Just keep running around?

    • Painzer

      Ah well… I can’t get past Ed… Really wish this game relied more on skills than stats. I made it all the way to the end on my own skills as a lowbie, but this is very much demanding I have more stats. *sigh*

  • Domonicus

    Ok, I just finished this chain. So you know, my talismans are ql lvl 5-6 and weapons are 7 and 8. What an awesome mission!

    • Domonicus

      and I did not kill a single thing

  • Smokito

    please the solution of the tier 3 im stuck on car pound, i’ve try everything but always miss 1 rock

    • I’ve updated the guide to include a picture of the tires puzzle.

  • Hoggimus Doggimus

    The tires “puzzle” is easily solved by simple observation and a bit of logic. If you mentally number the swinging slabs from nearest to farthest, you will have slabs 1, 3, 5 & 7 on your left, and 2, 4 & 6 on your right. Then mentally letter each tire, starting with the closest one to you as you enter the area and proceeding clockwise from there. This gives you tires A, B, C, D & E. Activate each tire in turn and simply watch which slabs move- you will see that tire A moves slabs 1, 2 & 3; B moves 1, 4 & 5; C moves 2, 3 & 4; D moves 4, 5 & 6 and E moves 1, 6 & 7. Since all the slabs EXCEPT 7 are moved by more than one tire, start by activating E to move 1, 6 & 7 into place, knowing that no other tires will displace 7 now since E is the only tire that moves it. Now activate B and watch as 1 returns back to its original position while 4 & 5 move into place. You now have 4, 5, 6 & 7 in place, leaving only 1, 2 & 3 needing to be moved. Since A moves (D’OH!) 1, 2 & 3, hit it and run across the slabs.

    in this quest the game dont give me the mask to enter the fog and i die when i go inside..what i need to do?

  • ugh

    my respirator went missing and I die in the mist… WTF?

    • Volaric

      Check your dressing room. It should be under “face” articles

    • Maiko

      it’s confusing I agree…. it went into the dressing room as option to dress up your face. 🙂

  • Corinne

    What’s that side mission that appeared when you killed the mob by Tyler’s corpse?

  • Oscar Mattsson

    I skipped the lights when I went into the fog last time I did this mission, and just walked straight ahead instead. Stumbled upon a couple of draug running around, and just before I fainted I saw something that looked like giant beating heart on the ground. Just a cool sidenote I haven’t seen before when I’ve followed the lights.

  • Fabricius

    awesome issue

  • Spider969

    Yeah the respirator becomes a permanent clothing item, I also received a Tyler Freeborn necklace clothing item. And I agree that this was the best mission yet! Really CREEPY! 😀
