I'm still lost on this section, and I'm obviously not the only one who's really stuck here. There are a lot of vague and elliptical answers, but I was hoping someone could give a clear answer about what we're looking for and where.

I have completed all islands up through Dreamshore with the exception of a few gems here and there and Firefly. I have used the scouts to swim the perimeters of all the islands to find all the little sandbars, etc. The Pyramid and Comet are open to me. I have not entered Comet.

I have found all the feathers and all the sharks teeth, taken them to the sages on Firefly and dressed the statues with the headdress and necklace that the sages gave me.

I have entered the pyramid and fully explored the lower/SE half. Other than opening passages, is there some other type of puzzle in the pyramid that I'm missing? If so, what is it and where do I find it? Should I leave the first half of the pyramid with some object? If so, what is it and where do I find it?

It seems I need to find the parts to an amulet, assemble the amulet and take it to the third sage on Firefly, but I have no idea where to find the amulet parts.

Apparently, this sage will then give me an ankh in return. In which case, what goes on the third statue?

Or am I just supposed to take the assembled amulet to the statues and dress the statue?

In which case, where does the ankh come from?

I understand I also need some rosaries and I'm not clear whether I need to find these to access a puzzle or complete a puzzle to obtain them. Either way, I have no idea where to find either the puzzle or the rosaries.

My treasure chest shows I have two bottles of oil and half (the round half gotten from the early gems puzzle) of a magnifying glass. I need the ankh, the rosaries, the two amulet pieces, the handle of the magnifying glass and something else round and ring-like.

Thanks!

Here is what to do if you really want precise directions:
(written with white, so select it to read, you can also read it line-by-line if you do not want to reveal all answers completely)
1. Go to Pyramid, explore all the S-SE-E part of it until you come to the chamber with lots of moveable floor plates.
2. After you solve that puzzle, you complete the level ( game will say Victory! and allow you to leave it ) and receive the handle of Magn. Glass.
3. After that you travel to the Firefly island again and receive the Ankh.
4. Go again to the Pyramid and explore the rest of it. At the end you'll got 3 Rosaries.
5. Once you have Rosaries and White&Black Oil, visit again Great Desert, Oasis and Abandoned City. After solving the puzzles, you'll receive three parts of Amulet.
6. Go to the Oasis and bind them together.
7. Go to the Firefly island and give Amulet to the Idols.

I can't find the chamber with the moveable floor parts you mention in your post, Guru. Can you indicate which part of the pyramid it's in please? I seem to have throroughly explored the S, SE and E sections (but obviously not, being as I haven;t found the chamber you refer to).

Many thanks

Nevermind - found it now ! Ah the power of posting :)

Great game, thanks so much !
