When you wake up, you will be within a dungeon cell, along with the knights. Find Merlin and speak to him. Choose all the options.
Note that you can get runes for one Telegrab spell, a cooked shark, and a few other items by talking to the guards in the cell.
Now use telegrab on the guard who is combing his hair. You will get a hair clip.
Before lockpicking the door, reach for the vent (Picture). You and the knights will make a human tower and Merlin will escape. Now use the hair clip on the door. You will need to solve the puzzle.
Here you must find the correct height of each tumbler. It's much easier than it looks. For now, ignore the green dot telling you to find the correct tumbler and type. Go to each tumbler by clicking on the number 1-4 and change them all to different heights. Eventually one or two will turn blue. Continue changing the heights around to get them all blue.
Now that you've got the correct heights, you'll need the correct tumblers. Since you have the right heights, just switch them around. If the first tumbler is blue on height 2 and the second tumbler is blue on height 3, switch them. Keep doing that until you get all greens and your out!
Note: after 10 tries, the lock resets itself. Also, once you unlock the door you won't have to do it again, as it will remain unlocked throughout the quest.
