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.

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.

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.

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.
