Skyrim talk:Great Lift at Alftand
 Return Trip
I'm slightly confused as to how I actually get the lift to work. It works fine from within Blackreach, but I assumed you'd be able to take it back down again and save the ruin-trek. Is this not the case, or do I need to do something while down in Blackreach to start it working?
- The lift must be activated from within Blackreach first. Is the gate closing, or are you fast-travelling from within the lift, without opening the gate first of all? The gate shouldn't close once you have opened it from the inside. And, to be clear, you can't reach the lever from the outside. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 14:13, 14 October 2012 (GMT)
While accessing lift from blackreach, it takes to the surface, but again show the loading page, take to surface and this repeats endlessly. But it was rectified after using dawnguard with skyrim official patch 1.8 — Unsigned comment by 184.108.40.206 (talk) at 02:10 on 14 December 2012
- This problem may not have been patched actually, since I just had it happen to me even though my game is fully updated. — Unsigned comment by BlackhawkXIII (talk • contribs) at 22:12 on 19 December 2012
