Ok, so I just beat The Bascilia which took a few hours since I was solo'ing it with Henchmen. I got the mission to 'explore Necropolis' but the gates not opened, Cyrus Drake doesn't have anything to say except: "Did you get to the next ring? I can't help you if you haven't."
Hi, i have the exact same problem, i have been doing side quests to try to see if i missed some thing so far, nothing a few people that are my friennds have passed me in lvl and it is annoying! i really want to get to the necropolis!
I have the answer to both of your question. In the plaza of conquests, there is an additional entrance to the Necropolis. It is at the very end of the plaza of conquests. For some reason your supposed to go to the other entrance first and THEN talk to proffessor cyrus drake right after that. Thats what my arrow told me to do and apparently it was right! I hope you get this post soon so you guys have no more confusion! Good luck with the rest of Dragonspyre!
