Genshin Impact is filled with many interesting mysteries and puzzles. This is quite atypical for an MMORPG, but that is why the game has become so popular among gamers. So, in this article we will analyze one of the most difficult puzzles of Genshin Impact – a puzzle with mechanical cubes that can be found on Watatsumi Island! Prepare your hero for a journey through several difficult locations!
How to solve the puzzle on Watatsumi Island?
We will immediately give advice – do not waste time and use the Portal that leads to the marked zone “Watatsumi teleport”. As soon as the hero is in place, turn him to the north and move forward until you see mechanical cubes with a closed chest.
And here’s another life-hack for you: the puzzle with mechanical cubes rewards the gamer more than once! You can enter the game again and solve the puzzle again to get another rich chest. And if you solve it for the third time, the gamer will receive a precious chest! Further attempts will no longer be counted.
So, at the location you will see 9 mechanical cubes. You can interact with them by turning them in the right direction. But not all cubes move, and in one of the places it will be completely absent. But you need to take into account all the pedestals, even with the missing cube!
The first task is to make a correct count. Please note that each cube has glowing dots. All of them are located only on one side. The side on which these points are located will tell you what number to assign to this cube. And if there is a stone on the cube, then you need to add 4 to the value! Here are all the values:
- If the points on the cube are located on the north side – 1.
- If the points on the cube are located on the east side – 2.
- If the points on the cube are located on the south side – 3.
- If the points on the cube are located on the western side – 4.
- If the cube is not on the platform – 9
- If there is a stone on the cube, add 4 to the base value.
To determine the meaning of the mechanical cube, use the map. The cardinal directions are marked on it. To solve the puzzle, the player needs to equalize the sums of the three cubes horizontally, vertically and diagonally!
The first solution
In the first version of the passage, we recommend that you face all nine cubes immediately after climbing the stairs. Now interact with the specified cubes exactly as long as indicated in the image! Take the chest and restart the game.
The second solution
For the second passage, you need to become in a similar way. Again, use the number of strokes shown in the image for each cube. Take the second rich chest and restart the game.
The principle has not changed for the last playthrough: perform as many hits on mechanical cubes as indicated in the picture. Immediately after that, a precious chest will appear that you can pick up!
