How to Unlock Palace in a Pool Domain

Just as the name suggests, the Palace in a Pool domain’s entrance is flooded. To access the domain, players have to solve a two-phase puzzle to un-flood the area.

In the first puzzle, players have to pay respect to a nearby statue. Doing that will activate the Electrogranum targets which players use to blink towards a particular direction.

Once that is done, summon an Electrogranum and use it to point the compass-like electro-based arrows towards the electro pillars.

Make sure the arrow faces towards the electro pillars. You can navigate to the other compass and pillars using the Electrogranum targets that you unlocked in the first step.

After you have managed to face the four arrows towards the electro pillars. The seal on them is undone. Now use an electro user to light up the electro pillars.
