Black Book has a lot of battle puzzles where your carefully crafted deck won’t be of much help, as you will need to use specific cards in order to figure out how to win.
They can be a little frustrating for some, but they offer an interesting alternative to the standard combat of the game. If you aren’t sure how to beat the Crispy Grove battle puzzle, here’s how:
How to Solve the Crispy Grove Puzzle in Black Book
You’ll be able to find the Cripsy Grove battle puzzle during your quest to help Nikolai. It should be in the Swamp area of the map.
First, move there and examine the house. You’ll start a pursuit that will end up leading you to the Crispy Grove, where the battle puzzle will start.
The fight against the evil spirits will take 3 turns, and here’s how you need to use your cards to win:
For the 1st turn, you’ll want to use Imperishable Robe and Headless to survive the damage of the spirits. Follow that with Enakha-Bes.
For the 2nd turn, you’ll want to start applying some damage. Choose Karkusha, followed by Urazy to apply some Waste. They use Herod’s Bones to double the Waste. The spirits will attack you but your previous white spells should keep you safe.
Finally, for the 3rd turn, you want to use Karkusha again, followed by Tryasovitsa and Ore. Use Nikolai to lay down some hurt too. That should be enough to end the battle and net you the win.

Genshin Impact: Totem Puzzle in ‘Garden of Endless Pillars’ Guide
Lighting the Pyro Totems in the correct order will help you complete this puzzle, and unlock a fast travel waypoint.
The Garden of Endless Pillars is located within the northwestern part of the Sumeru Desert. Once you’ve reached there, you’ll notice a giant slab cemented in the dunes, along with various Pyro totems surrounding it nearby.
There will be various mirage walls across the region, but they should be fairly easy to traverse, while hitting the totems with Pyro attacks.
We’ll explain how to successfully complete the Totem Puzzle in the “Garden of Endless Pillars” Guide – read on for our walkthrough.
The very first thing you’ll need to do is go to the Garden of Endless Pillars location on the map, which we’ve indicated in the screenshots below.
Once you’ve reached The Garden of Endless Pillars, you’ll need to switch over to Amber, as you’ll have to utilize Pyro attacks on the corresponding totems.
The first totem is extremely easy, as there are no walls blocking you – simply take a right upon entering the area, and shoot the totem.
To reach the second totem (pictured above) you will have to walk forward a fair bit until you spot the totem located in the right-hand corner. As you are blocked by the wall, you will need to traverse onto the concrete pillars to get a vantage point from which you can target the second totem.
Head right for the next totem, located in front of crumbled concrete walls. To find the last two totems, proceed forward and take a slight left. The very last one is located to the right, opposite of the prior totem.
Hitting all the totems will cause the slab to activate, and after this sequence, you will unlock a fast travel point for this region, which you can then use moving forward throughout the new update.
