When it comes to the Lingju Pass puzzle players will find themselves having to solve a number of puzzles in order to complete acquire all the Geo pillars.
The Lingju Pass Puzzle is located in the west of Liyue in… of course, Lingju Pass.
Here players will locate several Geo Pillars that players must activate by using the Geo Traveler, Noelle or Ningguang, though to complete this puzzle players will also need an Anemo character such as the Anemo Traveler, Jean, Sucrose or Venti.
I strongly recommend using Ningguang and the Anemo Traveler as these will provide you with some of the fastest clear times, though players though due to the fact that there is no time limit on activating any of these pillars, players can choose any of their characters that match these elements.
The following is the solution to the the Lingju Pass Puzzle.
It should be noted that players will not be able to switch between characters using party set up when completing any of these puzzles as it will relock the Geo Pillars, though if players want to switch their characters after activating a Geo Pillar that is possible.
THE PILLAR AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS
To begin players will be able to activate the Pillar at the top of the stairs without any problem.
This is the only Geo Pillar that doesn’t have a lock on it and should be activated first out of ease, though any of these Pillars can be activated in any order as there is no pattern a player must follow.
PRESSURE PLATE PUZZLE
When it comes to the Geo Pillar located in the East, players will see two pressure plates that can be a bit frustrating to complete.
Players will need to use a pet in order to unlock this Geo Pillar and can use characters like Amber in order to unlock it.
As Amber is a free character to play, she is going to be the most accessible choice for players to use, requiring players to use her ability Bunny Baron to place the bunny on one of the pressure plates and requiring the player to run to the other in order to properly unlock this Geo Pillar.
If players have the Geo Traveler accessible, ie. they are using the Geo Traveler to complete all of the Geo Pillars, they can also use the Geo Traveler’s meteorite to weigh down one of the pressure plates.
PILLAR IN THE WATER
In order to unlock the Pillar in the water players must head to the Clover Windmill that is located on the small island close by.
Players may recognize this Windmill if they have already completed the Jade Palace storyline in Genshin Impact, however, for players who have not completed a mechanic that requires a Clover Windmill, they are quite easy to use.
Use the Anemo Traveler to blow the Clover Windmill or Venti, though simply using any Anemo skill will be acceptable.
PILLAR BY THE TREE
In order to unlock the Geo Pillar by the tree players will have to run over all of the pyro flowers on the ground.
If players allow all the flowers to explode it will break the barrier by the Geo Pillar in the centre of this area.
Players should be wary while trying to complete this Geo Pillar as there are usually a number of mobs nearby, specifically the Members of the Fatui in the back which will wreck a player who is not ready.
Make sure you have a Cryo, Electro and Hydro character to be able to quickly deal with these members as otherwise players may spend a lot of time dealing with the frustration of shields.
THE GEO PILLAR AT THE TOP OF THE WIND CURRENT
The Geo Pillar at the top of the Wind Current is only accessible after all four of the other Geo Pillars are activated as the Wind Current will only appear after they are all activated.
In order to use the Wind Current, players will have to step on a raised rock, which can be located in the centre of the Wind Current.
Players must make sure they are well positioned or else they will end up swimming for the most part.
Players should note that if they fly up too high on the Wind Current and drop down they have the chance of dying, so try to get to the platform from as low as possible as it will be the safest for players.
REWARDS FOR COMPLETING THE LINGJU PUZZLE
Upon completing the Lingju Puzzle players will gain access to one Precious Chest and two Exquisite Chests, so enjoy your loot and Adventure Experience!
These chests will appear at the top of the stairs by the the Geo Pillar.
