I've gotten pretty far, but now I've come to a ramp that goes upwards and has two spinning blades of death on it: if I even so much as graze them, I die instantly.
Now, I know the rest of the dungeon is for a later main quest, "Discerning the Transmundane". But I was interested to see if I can just press on anyway, like I can do with other quest dungeons. I looked around online and in the official strategy guide, and the very "helpful" advice I've found is "avoid the blades because they'll kill you."
Is that it? Are the blades supposed to be a source of tedium, or is there a trick to getting around them (like, perhaps, a hidden lever to turn them off)? Or are they there to prevent me from continuing further until I have the appropriate quest?
