How To Complete Investigate the Ancient Ruins Electro Puzzle

Solving this puzzle can be a bit tricky, but once you know what to do, it will take you hardly a minute to get it done.

To investigate the ancient ruins in Genshin Impact, you will have to visit a small island just southeast of Fort Mumei. You can check the location on the map below:

Location: Southeast of Fort Mumei

Upon reaching this place, you will be prompted to investigate the ancient ruins which are basically the three Electro Pillars there.

To solve the electro puzzle here, you can use any of the Electro characters. But the most suitable character for this task is Fishcl with her bow weapon.

Now all you need to do here is activate the three Electro Pillar in a particular order and maintain your pace. Make sure that you are not too slow or else you will have to redo the whole thing again.

So stand in a location where you can see all the three pillars (facing south). Begin with the pillar on the extreme left (and furthest) and then keep on activating the pillars to the right one by one.

Once you solve the electro puzzle in the right sequence a Lawachurl will appear. You will have to defeat the Lawachurl in order to complete the objective of investigating the ancient ruins in Genshin Impact 2.1.

I hope this solved your query. In case you have more questions, feel free to drop a comment!
