How to “Activate the device and open the gate” in Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact released a new update, version 3.4, called “The Exquisite Night Chimes”.

The update includes a new area called “Desert of Hadramaveth” that has ravines and a lost city, new quests, outfits, and more.

In the area, you’ll have new daily commissions, fishing points, and radiant spin crystals.

New characters will be added to the game including “Admonishing Instruction” Alhaitham (Dendro) and “Burgeoning Grace” Yaoyao (Dendro).

Alhaitham has a sword and an elemental skill called “Universality: An Elaboration on Form” that deals Dendro damage and a Chisel-Light Mirror to form.

Yaoyao has a polearm weapon and an elemental skill called “Raphanus Sky Cluster” that throws White Jade Radishes that explode.

There are two new domains including “Fane of Panjvahe” and “City of the Deceased”.

To unlock them, you need to reach Adventure Rank 32 and above and fulfill specific requirements.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to activate the device and open the gate in Genshin Impact in The Temples Forsaken, Sumeru.

How to “Activate the device and open the gate” in Genshin Impact

To activate the device and open the gate in Genshin Impact, you need to attack the Rune Mechanism thrice.

After you’ve attacked the Rune Mechanism thrice, the energy beam will hit the sand pile and destroy it.

You’ll then be able to interact with the cube that was previously inside the sand pile.

Here’s how to do this (expand the screenshots above):

  1. Attack the Rune Mechanism (thrice) until the energy beam hits the sand pile.
  2. Go towards the cube that was previously inside the sand pile and select “Start”.

After you’ve selected “Start”, the gate will open and the next objective is to go deeper into the temple.

Note: Attacking a Rune Mechanism will change the direction of its energy beam.

When the energy beam hits a sand pile, it will destroy it and reveal what’s inside it.
