In this Genshin Impact guide, we will talk walk you through the “Examine the Mechanism and Open the Gate to the Secret Room” section of The Subterranean Trials of Drake and Serpent – The Trail of Drake and Serpent world quest.
Examine the Mechanism and Open the Gate to the Secret Room
In this section of The Trail of Drake and Serpent world quest, you will find two mechanisms on the wall, a Triangular mechanism and a Day-Night mechanism to switch between Whitenight and Evernight.
There are steel cages that stop the path to the secret room. What you have to do is activate the mechanism on the left pillar. Doing so will open the leftmost cage.
Once that is done, you have to switch to Whitenight and then activate the Triangular mechanism three times to rotate the wall and block the leftmost cage.
After that is done, you can use the other mechanism to open the cage near the stairs.
Now the path to the secret room is right in front of you. Navigate through, engage in a short skirmish and open the Exquisite Chest to get the fragment.
That’s it for now. Make sure to check out our coverage on the Genshin Impact version 2.4 update.
