How to Solve the Mystery of the Stones Puzzle in Genshin Impact
To solve the mystery of the stones in Tsurumi Island, Genshin Impact players must use the Peculiar Pinion feather they obtained beside Thunderbird Statue that sits nearby the puzzle. An Electro Seelie will appear and lead players to glowing symbols on a mountain. Also known as Ishine Script, these symbols are the solution to the puzzle.
Once it spawns, the Electro Seelie will quickly dart away, leaving behind a purple trail. If players fail to watch where the Seelie flies off on its second trajectory, search the surrounding area for a group of Hydro Slimes and Hydro Samachurls. These enemies will be guarding a chest right beside the Seelie is hovering. The slimes and Samachurls are high-level, so be sure to equip characters leveled enough for the fight.
The final destination of the Electro Seelie is beside another Thunderbird Statue. Once the Seelie settles, glowing symbols will appear on the mountain. These symbols are the same marking found on the stones in the puzzle. Players must activate the stones in the same order of the Ishine Script to complete the puzzle and summon an illusion.
Genshin Impact is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, iOS, and Android.
