The Dendro Monument puzzles in Genshin Impact are one of many ways to get primogems and Dendro printing in Sumeru. Also, totems can be useful in quests and open additional passages and locations. In the guide, we will consider all such puzzles, their location and solution.
How to solve puzzles with Dendro totems
To activate Dendro totems, you will need a character of the corresponding element. The easiest ways to get it are to resonate with the Archon Statue in Sumeru using the main character, or go through the 4th floor of the Twisted Abyss and get Dendro Archer Kollea.
Sometimes, if at the right time your squad did not have a Dendro character, you can find dendrogranums near the puzzle. Take them with a character of any element and hit the totem with a charged attack to activate it.
