Curse of Petrification in Genshin Impact: How to Solve All the Puzzles
The Curse of Petrification quest
How to start the quest
To do this, you will need to take on the above line of missions, that is, interact with the information loudspeaker in the Theater of Dreamers. After that, the required mission will automatically appear in your journal.
Next, jump off the edge of the cliff and glide in a northeasterly direction to the ledge below, on which the second loudspeaker is located, and listen to the prologue of the play. Its location is shown in the screenshots below.
Go to the old castle (crate puzzles)
Follow the Hydro Eidolon into the cave. He will suddenly turn to stone due to the red light emitted by the mechanical owl. You need to block this spotlight by moving crates and various junk. So, here you just need to push the box behind the bird once.
The water ball will start moving forward again, removing the wall. You will then receive a regular chest. Then the second owl will block the droplet's path. Push the crate a little ahead to block her red beams. Then push it again to save the droplet from the third bird.
Next, destroy the pile of rocks near the fourth ghost, and behind it you will find a new box – push it, thereby blocking the view of the owl, which will allow the eidolon to fly further without any problems.< /p>
Keep running after the eidolon, which will clear another wall out of the way. Next to the fifth owl on the mushroom cap you will find a bowl. Select the “feed” option and then give two berries. Nearby, by the way, there is a bush with berries.
Ahead you will find a complicated puzzle where you need to move several boxes at once. Her solution has two parts. Your first step would look like this:
- Push the inner drawer first.
- Next push the outer drawer.
- At the end, push the inner drawer again.
The whole process of solving this puzzle is shown in the gif above. The Hydro Eidolon will fly forward a little and then turn back to stone. In the second step of the puzzle, you need to complete the following steps:
- Push the outer box first.
- Then push the inner box.
- Push the outer box again.< /li>
- Finally push the inner drawer.
The whole process of solving this puzzle is shown in the gif above. Keep following the droplet, which will remove the wall and give you a rich chest. Then sit in a taratayka and drive to the entrance to the ancient castle. Follow the water balloon again until you reach the projector screen.
How to get the key with the Stream Projector
Before interacting with the stream projector, walk up to the crate in front and push it three times so it stands on the left and covers the ghost beam.
Now enter 2D space through the device and open all the chests. This level is fairly linear. First you will need to go all the way to the right, and then climb the platforms up to the chest. Avoid touching the red circles – just wait a bit until they disappear.
When you open the chest, you will not find anything in it, however, another chest will appear on the right side. Go down again, wait until the red circle goes the other way, and open the chest. There will be nothing inside again.
After that, the arena will be rebuilt. Run to the left, jump down and go to the third chest right in the red circle. Suddenly, a second red beam will appear behind you, following you and kicking the hero out of the preprint. Don't worry, it's all part of the plot. Watch a short cutscene, then re-enter 2D and retrieve the Key to the Secret Room in the lock from the chest.
Back in the real world, approach the quest marker and use the key to remove the screen, behind which you will find a rich chest. After collecting the Ancient Curse Potion, approach the petrified water ball and watch the final cutscene.
Don't forget to open the Rich Chest, which will contain the “Poster: Grim Castle” decorative item. Plus, you will receive a reward for completing the quest: 30 Primogems, 250 Adventure Points, 3 Hero Books, and 25,000 Mora. Don't forget to also complete two more quests in the chain if you haven't completed them: Saving the City of Heaven and Morion and the Sea Monster.
