The Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates is one of the many new domains that were introduced with Genshin Impact’s Inazuma update. It is one of the hardest domains to unlock. Players have to solve environmental puzzles and get hold of the memento lens to unlock the domain.
In this guide, we will talk about where you can find the Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates domain and how you can solve the Araumi puzzle to unlock the domain.
Where to Find Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates Domain in Genshin Impact
Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates domain is located inside the Araumi dungeon found north of Grand Narukami Shrine.
How to Unlock Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates in Genshin Impact
To unlock the Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates domain in Genshin Impact, players have to solve the Araumi block puzzle. Then use the Memento Lens to open a path to Araumi dungeons, again there are two block puzzles that players have to solve to un-flood the Araumi dungeon area. When that is done, players have to solve two tiles puzzle and then they can finally access the Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates domain.
Now let us go through all the steps one by one.
The first thing you have to do is light the electro pillars and activate a mechanism found near the big tree to open the Araumi dungeon entrance. There are a total of four electro pillars that you have to light.
Electro Pillar Location 1
Electro Pillar Location 2
Electro Pillar Location 3
To light up the third electro pillar, players have to solve the block puzzle. Get all the flowers to the front to solve the puzzle.
Electro Pillar Location 4
Activate the Mechanism
Enter The Araumi Dungeon from the Tower
Use Memento Lens on the Earth Kitsune Statues to Open the Path to Araumi Dungeon
Solve the first block puzzle to un-flood the dungeon halfway through.
To solve the Araumi dungeon block puzzle, you have to face the flowers towards the wall. Once they all light up, the lower part of the dungeon is un-flooded halfway through.
Navigate through the flooded area to reach the second block puzzle room. Once again you have to solve a block puzzle. This time around you have to face the flowers outwards. Once you do that, the Araumi dungeon is un-flooded and you can access the Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates domain, only after solving a few tiles-related puzzles.
Drop to the perpetual mechanical array boss arena and climb up the path that leads to the Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates domain. There are two ground tiles puzzles that you have to solve to unlock the domain.
Tile Puzzle 1
To solve the tile puzzle, walk on the tiles in such a way that you cover all the tiles without walking on the same one twice. The best way to solve this puzzle is to cover the corner tiles first and use a 2D Helical path.
Tile Puzzle 2
Solve the second tile puzzle in the same way.
Scan the nearby Earth Kitsune statue and then activate the central mechanism.
And, you have the Empty Boat of a Thousand Gates domain unlocked.
Now, you can just interact with the domain to access and clear it.
