Floor tile puzzles where you light them up in specific fashions have existed in Genshin Impact for a while now. You may have come across several of these when you were exploring Inazuma. They are usually found within ruins of some old structures.
In Seirai Island, there are three of these light-up floor tile puzzles, and they have special mechanics where two sets exist per puzzle. One set of tiles is lit with golden lights that cannot be modified, and another set will light up in blue when you step on them.
We will call them the Golden Tiles Set and the Blue Tiles Set for convenience.
The pattern of which tiles are lit on the golden set serves as a clue, while the second set is the one you need to light up.
You will also find a stone tablet near these special floor tiles, which will tell you how to light up the tiles based on the Golden Tile Set’s pattern.
Another thing to take note of is the torches around each tileset. These will indicate the position of the pattern that the tiles need to be lit.
Also, these ruins are most likely lurking with monsters and Treasure Hoarders, so be prepared to fight.
How to Solve the Tile Puzzle in Fort Hiraumi
There are only four tiles involved in this puzzle, and both sets are closer to each other. Therefore it is very easy to remember the pattern.
When you interact with the stone tablet, you will read a text that says, “Same form, same light.“
This means you must light the Blue Tiles in the same pattern as the Golden Tiles.
Take note of the position of the torch and see that the tile closest to it was not lit up.
Follow this pattern when you light the Blue Tiles up, and you will get a chest.
How to Solve the Tile Puzzle in Koseki Village
The second puzzle is located south of the Statue of the Seven in Koseki Village—just below the cliff by the shore.
The clue of the Golden Tile Set is located south of Fort Hiraumi.
To easily travel back and forth between these tilesets, you can use the nearby Phase Gates for you to be transported through its energy route.
Looking at the Golden Tiles Set, only three are lit up, and the stone tablet says, “And that which is different shall be illuminated all the same.“
This means that the tiles you need to light upon the Blue Set should be the ones that are not lit up on the Golden Set.
How to Solve the Tile Puzzle in Amakumo Peak
The third puzzle is a 3 by 3 set of tiles, and the clues are separated into three smaller sets scattered around the lake in Amakumo Peak.
A sealed switch mechanism also exists right next to the puzzle, and this will be unsealed when you solve the puzzle.
The torches play a big role in solving this puzzle. There are torches at each corner of the Blue Tiles Set if you look carefully. This will help you figure out the position of the clues on the entire puzzle set.
Since the Golden Tiles Sets are away from each other, it could be difficult to remember the pattern. Phase Gates are also present nearby to help you easily go to each of the Golden Tiles Sets.
The message you get from the stone tablet says, “And that which is different shall be illuminated all the same.” Again, this means that the tiles you need to light upon the Blue Set should be the ones that are not lit up on the Golden Set.
This first Golden Tiles Set has two tiles, with only the tile on the right being lit. There is also a torch on its upper-left side, indicating that this clue should be for this same position in the puzzle.
The second Golden Tiles Set has four tiles with three lighting up and a torch at the lower-left of the tiles. This clue is of the lower-left part of the puzzle.
The last Golden Tiles Set has three tiles, only the middle one lighting up. The torch indicates that this set is the clue for the right side of the puzzle.
Remember that the tiles you need to light upon the puzzle are the ones that are turned off on the golden sets. You can light the tiles in any order as long as the pattern is correct.
After solving the puzzle, you will acquire the Sea of Puzzles achievement. The mechanism switch will also be unsealed, and you can then interact with it.
Doing so will drain the lake’s water and reveal an underground ruin under the Amakumo Peak.
