Genshin Impact puzzles and quests in the Golden Apple Archipelago are not to be missed by players
1) The Whiteness Puzzle
The Broken Isle puzzle in Genshin Impact is long enough that players have to glide over five different rock mountains around Broken Isle. However, this puzzle is worth the reward as it will give you one Luxury Chest and two Precious Chests.
To activate the puzzle, the player has to take a picture of the mural inside the cave. The mural contains pictures of water surfaces corresponding to five different pools. After that, the player has to go to the pool and change the water level according to the mural.
For the last step, players need to head to the north shore from the Broken Isle teleport point. They will find a location with five poles and five miles. Players must step on stones following signs on five different poles to solve the puzzle.

3) The Minacious Isle Vortex Puzzle
The Minacious Isle vortex puzzle is easy to miss as it is located away from the main island of Minacious Isle at Genshin Impact. Also, the Luxury Chest is hidden under a whirlpool.
First of all, players have to use Waverider to sail to a small island southeast of Minacious Isle. Once players arrive on the island, they need to navigate their Waverider to the whirlpool next to the island.
Once in the underground cave, players can interact with several stone tablets. For the final puzzle, players have to smash the fragile rock next to the stone tablet to find the pressure plate. Set the time in the game according to the stone tablet and stand on the pressure plate.
