Trails in Tianqiu

There is a strange tablet in Tianque Valley that seems to relate some of the valley's history.


Note To complete the quest, you'll need to have the traveler to be attuned to the geo element.
1 Enter the ruined building to the right.

Light the torch connecting the 3 torches in the center then light the torch connecting the outer triangle
3 The best pattern to solve this puzzle is to try and leave a single torch lit. After leaving one torch lit, hit a torch that is not adjacent to that torch then light the torch in-between the two lit torch to complete the puzzle.puzzle last step
4 The 3rd puzzle has 2 torches on each sides of the wall. Hitting a torch will switch both torches from the opposite wall. This puzzle is pretty easy, hit both torches from one side then hit both torches from the opposite sides to complete the puzzle.
5 Take the switch and use it on the machine near the ancient tablet then head inside the ruined building to the south.
6 This building is a 3 floor challenge area. With a decently leveled team, this should not prove difficult.
7 Complete the challenges then bring the 2nd switch to the machine.
8 The 3rd ruins is the one on the west (the same area that the ancient tablet is placed). Climb the ruins to find the entrance.
9 Remember about the traveler's geo element? You're going to need extra platforms to complete the challenge. Make platforms on the exisiting platforms to allow you to reach new heights. We highly recommend practicing the route first.
10 After completing the challenge, activate the mechanism outside then defeat the Treasure Hoarders to complete the quest.


You get to open 3 Precious Chests at the end of the quest.
