Getting to high up and far away places

I've seen this asked a bunch on here, and other places so I know this sounds like a repeat, but I promise none of the provided solutions work.

There is a chest in the library with a pillar on the far side of a hole in the floor, and a quest for Master Darkin to get up real high and I cannot solve either of these puzzles.

To me the "obvious" solution in both cases was Misty Step, and that worked for a different chest in the Library near the one I mentioned above that is below the characters. I could Misty Step down to a chest, but not across the hole. I tried everything I could think of, I tried Levitate, but obviously that just moves a character higher or lower, they can't move side to side. I tried casting Jump on my High Strength character, but they couldn't jump across, even when I brought them up to the "ceiling" level. Does the Mage need to be up on that level for Misty Step to get across? That is the only thing I didn't try, but seemed like that shouldn't matter if they can't see on the same level?


Similarly I couldn't Misty Step up to the Tower entrance for Master Darkin's quest. I could Levitate a character up to the correct height, but obviously they can't do anything once they are up there. I got as close as I could for Misty Step but no dice. Is there somewhere else I should stand? I tried interacting with the "Minor Gate" that Master Darkin mentioned, but I'd already grabbed the plaque off it and I think given it to the Antiquarians, so hopefully that's not necessary. If it helps I can only just barely see the ledge with the glowing blue fire, even when I spam the scroll wheel.

You need the Fly spell or spell scroll or a Potion of Flying for both of these. Thankfully for Master Darkin's quest the Scavenger shopkeep at Caer Lem actually sells a Potion of Flying so even if you're level 4 and don't have Fly yet and haven't been lucky enough to get hold of a scroll you can still get up there; and once you get up there with Fly a rope gets dropped down for your other characters.

Gotcha. I will try that tomorrow. I thought I was going insane, reading all these posts online saying Misty Step is the solution.

I just got to 4, so Fly is a bit off, I'll get the potion. Thanks!

For the Lem tower you can either go with the Fly or you need to combo levitate (to get the height) and misty step (to move horizontally).  Neither misty step nor levitate can do it alone.

For the library you can misty step into the air (using the planer targeting) and drop down onto a ledge (taking some damage).  Just be careful as you can end up being over the void with misty step resulting in the character dying.

I have also been able to Spider Climb out onto the wall and then Misty Step across. Being stuck to the wall actually moves you one square further into the area.
