How to “Investigate the courtyard far down the corridor” in Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact has multiple missions/quests that you can do for rewards.

It also has side quests, cutscenes, stories, and more.

Some quests may seem easy, but they are deceptively difficult.

For example, you might be stuck trying to solve a puzzle.

However, the solution to the puzzle is obvious.

In other cases, some puzzles or tasks are difficult to solve because there are little to no hints at all.

A task in the game requires you to investigate the courtyard far down the corridor.

However, many players don’t know what to investigate or interact with.

This is because you won’t be given any directions.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to “Investigate the courtyard far down the corridor” in Genshin Impact.

Investigate the courtyard far down the corridor

How to “Investigate the courtyard far down the corridor” in Genshin Impact

  1. Go to the courtyard.
  2. Walk on top of the pink flowers.
  3. Stand on top of the glowing spot.
  4. Align yourself until the rocks behind you create a flower shape.

The goal of the puzzle is to align the rocks in the distance to form a flower/butterfly shape.

To do so, you need to stand in a specific spot on top of the pink flowers in the courtyard.

To accomplish this, you need to keep moving around the spot.

A lot of players are unable to solve the puzzle because they thought that it’s bugged.

“I was afraid mine was having loading issues, I didn’t even realize what I was supposed to do!”.

“I thought this is a bug that I repeated the whole quest”.

“The presumed light that you are supposed to stand on isn’t where you stand, but in front of it”.

Other players gave tips on how to easily solve the puzzle.

“For those who can’t find the right angle, try zooming in or out, this is what helped me out”.

“For those who are still confused, pay attention to the rocks with markings in the distance”.

After you’ve aligned the rocks in the distance, the task will change to “Investigate the courtyard on the other side”.
