@Knight Captain: I do think Batlin failed opening the Wall, since the Guardian didn't get through it.
If Batlin hadn't failed then the Guardian would be standing next to us and then kill Batlin, probably say something like: "See how I reward those who sought to betray me."
@Paulon: True that. It's actually what annoyed me the most of the game: "Hey, Great Earth Serpent, remember how I helped all you guys out? Nice of me, huh? Maybe help ME out as well, by getting the Guardian's grubby hand off of me!"
It really felt like a dick move, leaving the Avatar floating around in the void like that.
@Incriptus: You could be right, perhaps the Wall did briefly open. The Banes might have blocked passage somehow, since Batlin wanted to go into the void to become immortal (dunno how he thought to manage that, that fool).
Perhaps the Banes could have left their gems at any moment, since I find it doubtful Batlin used any water on them, making them unfit to hold the banes, so they could have waited for the right moment to burst out from their flawed prisons, right when there were some perfect human bodies around to take over.
This'd also explain why Batlin manages to open it right as you enter the room: Before that the Banes simply refuse it.
