Players can destroy the stone seals with a pyrobased attack and free the creature and fight it to gain rewards. Pyro works best for this because of the elemental reaction of Dendro and Pyro creates a “Burning Reaction”.

How to solve the Strange Energy Extraction Device Puzzle

During the course of exploring the vastness of Genshin Impact’s Sumeru Region, players will come across Strange Energy Extraction Device in Eremite camps. These are the second kind of puzzles added In the Sumeru update.

Each time a player touches it, new flowers will sprout. When they reach the one that is glowing, the squares that did not grow grass will now have grass on them.


  1. If a single square is missed, the player will fail the puzzle.
  2. Stepping on the same square twice will also fail the puzzle.
