Genshin Impact Solve the Puzzle of the Watatsumi Statue is one of the quest steps you’ll encounter during the Solitary Sea Beast quest. It requires you to activate several pillars in order to unlock access to the pillar in the first place. After that, you need to activate the pressure plates in a set order and light them all up. It can get kind of tricky. That’s why we’ve put together our Solve the Puzzle of the Watatsumi Statue Genshin Impact guide to help you out.
How to Solve Genshin Impact Watatsumi Statue Puzzle
To solve the Puzzle of the Watatsumi Statue in Genshin Impact, the first step is to activate it. To do that, head a bit to the southeast (location provided below) and get an electrogranum. Then, rush towards the large house near the statue. Your Sacred Sakura must be level 17 if you want to activate the electro pillar under the stairs. If you can’t pass use Beidou character. The next one is the one on the stairs, then rush to the water pillar near the sea and activate that one too. This will activate the statue and let you proceed to the next step. That said, if you’re electrogranum level is too low, you don’t have to bother with all of this. All you need to do is play as Beidou, Fischl, Sara, or Baal, and you should be good to go. Use their ranged electric attacks on the electro pillars; you don’t even need to get inside the bubble.
The next step is to stand on the pressure plate with the yellow light pillar on it. When you do, several blocks will rise from the sand, and you need to activate them all to solve the Genshin Impact Puzzle of the Watatsumi Statue. Walk across them to the pillar, but don’t touch it until all the blocks have lit up. Also, don’t fall of the path, or you’ll have to start over. Once all the blocks are lit up, interact with the pillar to activate the next part. Step on the block immediately to your left and walk straight across all four blocks, then take a step to the right and towards the pillar. Again, interact with it only after all blocks have lit up.
Last, but not least, the third section. Turn left and head straight for two blocks then left for one block, then right for three blocks and down to the pillar. This should complete the puzzle and reveal a nearby treasure chest. If the textual explanations aren’t enough, check out our screenshots below.
