Solving the puzzle with sparks and torches in Safha Shatranj
Where to find the puzzle
You can find it during or after completing the world quest “The Temple Where the Sands Flow Like Tears”, in which you will remove the sand in the Abandoned Temples location, turning it into Safha Shatrand, and open the platform for chess pieces.
Near the entrance to the ruins in the north of the location you will find two primordial torches, to which you need to bring the same number of primordial sparks to get a valuable reward. Next, we will indicate the location of the blue cubes.
Primal Spark 1 (torch puzzle)
So, head to the southeastern part of the location to the dilapidated wall. Before that, add any Pyro character to your squad, however, we advise you to take an archer (for example, free Ember) to make it easier for you. After climbing the wall, you will see a blocked pedestal below and four torches – you will need to light them (it seems that you can do this in any order).
The first torch is to the left of the candlestick, on a small stone ledge, the second one is to the right of it, next to the wall, the third is on the left and behind, not far from the withered tree, and the fourth is on the right and behind, near the bushes. The picture below shows the location of all the torches.
Once you light all the torches, a primal spark will appear on the candlestick and you can unlock it. Then start leading her. Get the glowing cube to the second pedestal on the chessboard, and then deal with the two flying kites. Release the spark again and now escort it straight to the torch.
Primal Spark 2
Now go to the southwestern part of the area with chess pieces. There you will find a pedestal with a primordial spark. When you approach it, you will be attacked by a primordial construct. We advise you to attack her with Electro strikes for faster destruction.
After dealing with the enemy, free the glowing cube and start following it to the second candlestick – unlock it again. Now move straight to the torch and activate it. On the way, you may be attacked by another pristine structure.
Once both The columns will be activated, a precious chest will appear near the entrance to the ruins – open it to get 10 primogems, pestilence, adventure points and other valuable items.
