Being the land of wisdom, Sumeru was expected to have particularly difficult puzzles that would leave one scratching one’s head. If you have walked this earth, you have probably noticed a Submerged Waypoint Teleport with no way to submerge and unlock it. Instead, you’re supposed to go through a massive puzzle. This is what you should do.


How to unlock the teleport waypoint

The Waypoint in question can be found in the Vissudha field region of Sumeruabout him left side of the Statue of the Seven. When you look at it on the map, you will notice that it is in the middle of a lake; upon reaching the area, you will find the Waypoint in the depths of the water.

You will be surprised by the amount of work you have to do to unlock this Waypoint. First, go to the east bank of the waterfall where the Teleport Waypoint is located. Here, you will have to go up to find a mechanism in the form of a locked dice.

Next to the mechanism will be a couple of Ruin Machines that will activate when you get close. Simply defeat the machines and the mechanism will unlock.. Interact with it to drain the water for the first of two necessary times.

Just above the mechanism you will find a Seelie who will guide you to your next checkpoint. This is one of the more difficult Seelie to follow as it takes you through the water and you can easily run out of power. Follow the Seelie into a cave, where you’ll find the biggest puzzle.

The path that Seelie will have you follow is long and full of water. Fortunately, there are several ways to regain stamina. You may find small corners or branches on the path where you can stand, or you can use the new yellow spheres to regenerate some of your stamina. You can also use foods that instantly provide resistance.

Once you are inside the cave, you will find quite an overwhelming sight – there is so much to do. The first order of business is collect the chest generated by returning the Seelie to its pedestal. Next, you will see some treasure hoarders standing near a door blocked by a Dendro aura.

Defeat these enemies so they don’t bother you while you solve the puzzle. After that, you will notice two Dendro elemental pillars in view. One of these will be hidden behind Dendro’s aura, and the other will be in the open next to him.

Activate Dendro’s pillar first which is not blocked by the aura. You can do this by using any Dendro ability on the pillar. Once done, head to the pillar inside Dendro’s aura. The solution to this is easier than it seems.

All travelers have to do is find a secret passage near the gate walls with the aura. There are several ways to get in, but the easiest is on the right edge, just above the end of the aura at the top. You can enter the room from these passages and activate the pillar, which will remove the barrier as well.

Below you will see some rock structures in the initial region of the cave, near the Seelie deposit. These structures are unique to Sumeru. The ones with a green symbol in front of them can only be activated using a dendrogranabut there is none to be found.

To summon a Dendrograna, you need to interact with another rock structure in the middle that doesn’t have the green symbol. These can be identified by the tree branches engulfing them.. Another way to identify this structure is by using its Elemental View.

Once you’ve found it, go to the rock and use a Dendro ability near it. This isn’t the most intuitive mechanism, but it makes the rock rise into the air, revealing the necessary Dendrograna.

Interact with the Dendrograna and you will see three petal-shaped things surrounding your character. You must then use a charged attack from any weapon on rocks with a green symbol on them. After you do that, one of the petals will follow your attack and hit the rocks, unlocking them.

The bow is the best weapon to use with Dendrograna, as it you don’t need to fully charge the attacks. You can simply hold the shot for less than a second and fire it at the required location, and this counts as a charged attack.

Once these rocks are unlocked, some mushroom enemies may appear that you need to defeat. Two of them will also spawn Elemental Dendro Pillars that you can interact with to unlock the main mechanism in the area. Finally, you can interact with the bucket mechanism to lower the water further.

Before continuing, head back to the cave; this will be easier now that the water is gone. When you come back out, you’ll find that the Teleport Waypoint is yours for the taking.

Once you shoot it with Dendrograna, it will move to a new location and you will have to repeat the process. This is where the importance of an arc character shines again. Once you have hit the ring enough times, the puzzle will be solved and the The domain will rise from the ground. Now you can interact with it to unlock it.
