I thought I was the only one facing this issue have tried everything and got the statues with the three swords up but the door to the spiral staircase remains locked any clue why this is so?
I have found the save file you and I were looking for and can give it to you. how do I do it? Here i uploaded it to a file share you can download it from there.
The second one will have the save where you are at the top of the spiral staircase before the Tiamat Fight. I was also facing the same issue and found this so thought I'll give it to you as well.
