Genshin Impact Safhe Shatranj Luxurious Chest puzzle guide

The Safhe Shatranj Luxurious Chest puzzle is in the western part of this area. Basically, you’ll want to use the teleporter and enter the nearby temple. Take the elevator to the chamber below, and you’ll spot locked goodies in the room.

So, how exactly do you solve the whole thing?

  • The goal is to match the left-hand side diagram with the one on the right-hand side, essentially mirroring what you see.
  • Right side = Specific containers will have a golden glow, denoting that only these containers are filled with sand. Those without a glow, meanwhile, are drained of sand.
  • Left side = Use an archer character to snipe specific parts:
    • There are two upper valves that cause sand to flow to the two topmost containers.
    • Containers also have their own valves that cause sand to funnel further down.
    • If you think you correctly did everything but a chest isn’t getting unlocked, recheck to see if a container is completely full (i.e., a long golden line), not just partially.
