It is highly recommended to bring a Pyro character while adventuring and exploring Dragonspine. Most of the enemies you will encounter in this area has the Cryo element.

Using the Pyro element can help stave off the Sheer Cold debuff too.

Seelie by the cliff Seelie on ruin pillar

To the south of the mechanism are two Seelie Nests. You can use Elemental Sight to find which direction the Seelie are.

One of the Seelie's is on a nearby cliff, while the other in on a ruin pillar in the water.

Activate the Mechanisms with the Seelie

Genshin - The Final Experiment - Puzzle.jpg

To the north of the mechanism are two Seelies and 5 monuments you need to activate. The monuments are activated if a Seelie passes nearby.

You will need timing when following the Seelie, so that before the monument deactivates again, the second Seelie will activate it again.
