The Golden Apple Archipelago is back for Genshin Impact’s Summertime Odyssey event, which runs from July 15, 2022, to August 24, 2022. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to complete all the puzzles in the first room of Mona’s optional Mirage to get three Chests and the final Phantasmal Conch.
Keep in mind that you need to complete the required quest segment before you can unlock the optional Mirage. Once that’s done, head to the Temple of the Star Latitudes Waypoint in the Minacious Isle and select The Ancient Azure Stars under Phantasmal Tales to begin.
The Ancient Azure Stars first room walkthrough – How to solve all puzzles
Upon entering the Domain, turn left and enter the first room, which is the one with the same pattern as the image above. If the door is already open, go ahead and enter. Otherwise, you can put in the Asterism Shards indicated above to open up an entryway.
Once you get inside, turn right to find a staircase. Climb it and keep following the path it leads to. You’ll eventually find yourself in a chamber that spawns invisible bridges. Keep going forward until you’re in the room with the Astral puzzle. Upon entering the room, you’ll find the reference image for the Astral puzzle on the left wall. In this guide, assume that the reference image is north.
First Astral puzzle
Assuming that the reference image is north, follow the guidelines in the image above to determine what direction the Star Guides should face. You only need to use five Star Guides in this puzzle, even though there are seven in the room. If you accidentally activate an unneeded Star Guide, simply attack it again to deactivate it. After arranging the Star Guides as prescribed above, the pattern on the wall will change.
Second Astral puzzle
Assuming that the reference image is north, follow the guidelines in the image above to determine what direction the Star Guides should face. You only need to use five Star Guides in this puzzle, even though there are seven in the room. Like the first time, the pattern on the wall will change after arranging the Star Guides as prescribed above.
Third Astral puzzle
Assuming that the reference image is north, follow the guidelines in the image above to determine what direction the Star Guides should face. After successfully arranging the Star Guides, an Exquisite Chest will spawn for you to loot.
Pressure Plate Astral puzzle & Phantasmal Conch location
There is a hidden door to the right of the reference image. Interact with the wall to enter the next chamber, where you’ll find the final Phantasmal Conch on the left side. You must jump onto the block to interact with the Conch and have it count toward the Resonating Visions event.
To solve the Pressure Plate Astral puzzle, your goal is to form a constellation based on the reference image on the ground. The stars in the sky will move upon stepping on the Pressure Plates, which are numbered above for your reference.
Step on them in this exact order:
- Step on Pressure Plate #1 twice.
- Step on Pressure Plate #2 three times.
- Step on Pressure Plate #3 once.
- Step on Pressure Plate #4 twice.
A Precious Chest will appear for you to loot. Pay attention to the constellation in the sky, as a floating star will come out of it. Follow the little star out the door, and jump down to initiate the Challenge of the Starry Sky. You need to avoid the shooting stars, which you can cheat by stepping on a Geo Construct. Completing this last segment will reward you with a Luxurious Chest.
