Genshin Impact Wondrous Shadows: Lantern Riddles

In the Wondrous Shadows mini-game, players are presented with lanterns of various shapes that must be rotated, so that their shadow casts a silhouette of a certain object. The lantern can be rotated in any direction, but while the concept may sound simple, it can be difficult to figure out how to solve it. In total, there are 3 parts with 3 riddles each. We will help you go through each and every riddle with a detailed explanation.

Lantern Riddle: Basic Rules

The Wondrous Shadows Challenge asks players to adjust the Shadow Lantern parts, so their combination of light and shadows completes the image and thus solves the corresponding riddle. A player’s riddle-solving progress will rise, as the shadow’s form reaches the final answer. Once a riddle reaches 100% completion, it is solved.

To drag a lantern segment, the player needs to hold and drag it. A player can only rotate the lantern clockwise or anticlockwise when its shadows are locked.
