In Midsummer Islands Adventure Part II, across the Golden Apple Archipelago, players will encounter a new puzzle that involves ring-like structures. These puzzles reward players with a variety of different rarity chests, and thus they must be solved.

With this article, we will show you how to effectively solve the ring puzzles in Genshin Impact.

How to solve ring puzzles in Golden Apple Archipelago

There are three major things to look after while solving a ring puzzle in Genshin Impact’s Golden Apple Archipelago area.

  • Round Weight Mechanism that you may have already encountered many times in the Liyue region.
  • Rings placement and rotatable rings.
  • The wooden structure that you have to hit to solve the ring puzzle.

Look for the weight mechanism on the ground

To solve the ring puzzle, first look for the weight mechanism that activates the rings in the Vicinity.

Your end goal is to hit the wooden structure

As mentioned above, your end goal is to use a Harpastum that travels through the ring, eventually hitting the wooden structure.

Rotate the ring mechanism

Rotate the rings in the direction that forms a perfect path for the harpastum to travel.

Check for the arrow direction

Check the arrows on the rings to get an idea on the direction the harpastum will go after passing through that particular ring.

In my case the wooden target was in left, so I rotated the ring in the left direction. [The arrow is indicative to that.]

Once you have rotated all the rings and formed a path for the harpastum to travel and hit the wooden target. It’s time to active the weight mechanism.

Stand on the weight mechanism

As said earlier, stand on the weight mechanism or keep an object on it to activate it. You can use Amber’s Baron Bunny, Xiangling’s Guoba, Albedo’s Flower Isotope, Zhongli’s pillar, etc to activate the weight mechanism.

All Set, Equip and Throw Harpastum

Now equip the harpastum from player inventory –> gadgets.

Once equipped, aim and throw the Harpastum at an angle that it passes through the rings successfully.

Claim Ring Puzzle Reward

Once the harpastum hits and destroys the wooden target. You will unlock the puzzle reward.
