Genshin Impact Domain of The Wayward Path Puzzle Solution

To solve the Domain of the Wayward Path puzzle in Genshin Impact, you have to know how the puzzle works. Basically, each pillar that you activate affects the two pillars next to it. If they’re on, they’ll turn off, and vice versa. It’s a little difficult to explain in words, so let’s just go straight for the solution. You can probably stumble into the solution randomly, but why waste time like that?

When the puzzle begins, three of the pillars will be on – top, bottom left, and bottom right. The first pillar you should activate is upper left. Now, upper left and bottom right will be on. Next, activate bottom left, and it’ll be the only one that’s on. Activate bottom right, and upper right will turn on with it. Lastly, activate top left, and all three pillars will light up. Here’s the sequence again, and some pictures below, just in case.

  1. Upper Left
  2. Bottom Left
  3. Bottom Right
  4. Upper Left

Once you solve the puzzle, activate the cube and follow the path of light to your next objective. You can handle it from here. So, yeah, that’s how you solve the Domain of The Wayward Path Puzzle in Genshin Impact. If you need more help with the game, check out some of our other guides.
