Open world with multiple secrets and puzzles to solve, some side quests and treasures can be difficult to find. But Chi's secret offers a particularly tough challenge in Genshin Impact. In addition to numerous fights, the clues offered by the game are thin and very vague. What are the keys to solve these puzzles and get your hands on the treasure?
First of all you have to start by going to the Jade Springs, to Liyue, to the ruins located west of the Stone Gate. There is a strange character, Yan'er, waiting for you on a mission. She asks you to decipher the enigma kept by the guardian of the ruins, a mechanical entity as ancient as it is overpowered.
Once defeated you will only have to interact with the stele on the ground containing the enigma. The latter asks you to activate 3 statues present in the area, each of them near crystal deposits oranges. When activated, a chest appears in the center of the ruins, containing an Ancient Fragment. The puzzle has begun.
Second fragment, second riddle
Also in the Jade Springs, this time west of Qingce Village, is a teleportation point. Just climb the mountain just behind to find the location of the puzzle to solve. For this second fragment the stele asks you tointeract with Archon Geo statues in a specific order. The latter is North, South-East, North-West, North-East and finally South-West.
Again, a chest appears, filled with rewards and the second shard.
Third and last fragment
The final shard can be found on top of the highest mountain in Qingce Village. Go to the teleportation point of this place to climb it. At the very top, in addition to the magnificent view, is a stele, statues and a Geoculus. This new puzzle again asks you to interact with the statues, but this time respecting specific conditions. Each of them points to a direction, and it is necessary to activate those aiming at the lair of Stormterror, the highest point of the region, a snow-capped mountain and the city of Liyue.
The final chest then appears, giving you the third shard and access to the final part of this puzzle.
Solve Chi's Secret
You need to go see Ruoxin in Qingce Village so that she can tell you the presumed entrance to the place you are looking for. Going to the waterfall indicated, an entrance is drawn on the right. Then open the gate using the three fragments to discover a room empty of any treasure, but where an altar and looters await you. Kill those vile scoundrels beforeactivate the coin mechanism. Now it's your power that will speak, since you have to overcome 3 waves of monsters.
- First wave – Kill a Ruin Golem
- Second wave – Protect the crystal by killing the 3 ruin golems
- Third wave – Kill a Ruin Guardian
The monsters killed, you just have to go to the second room, a little further. There lies the coveted treasure and all the secrets surrounding it.
You have now solved all the puzzles concerning the secret of Chi in Genshin Impact. You can now discover the other treasures hidden in Teyvat.
