Most of the challenges in the Silberspiegel Refuge center around Junta’s Coffer. Finding it – and more importantly, opening it – can be difficult if you are playing the game for the first time, especially since it’s here you’ll be introduced to the character swapping mechanic.
Where to Find Junta’s Coffer in Syberia: The World Before
Junta’s Coffer is located at the very end of the refuge’s attic, among the old furniture. Interacting with it will give you access to two puzzles. Solving them will open it’s upper portion, but getting to the bottom will require more effort.
Junta’s Coffer Puzzles
Both puzzles are rather easy to do. The one on the coffer’s right requires you to finish the image using only the fitting rectangle. Use the middle one on the left and both the one on the top and bottom right.
The second one is a bit harder, both to do and to give any hints on. Essentially, you need to use the dials on the right to complete the picture. You can use the screenshot above to see what shapes are needed, but there’s little else we can help with on this one.
Opening the Coffer
Now, you’ll need to rotate two discs to match the picture on the top of the coffer – again, nothing we can help with. This will unlock two more dials, these ones used to input the codes that will open the coffer. These codes can be found in the pictures from your inventory that match the images on the top of the coffer. The codes are 072 and 108.
The Key to The Coffer
You’re not done yet. Take the items found inside the upper portion of the coffer – these will unlock the ability freely change your playable character between Kate and Dana. When you switch to Dana, you’ll need to take the key to the bottom of Junta’s Coffer and find it under the floorboard on your left.
Once you’ll do it, switch to Kate and search that exact spot. Use the key on the Coffer to unlock the last puzzle. To solve it, you have to switch to Dana again and enter the dark room used to develop pictures. There, you should find a series of pictures that portray very specific things, in this order: Mountain, Goat, Flower, and Tree. This is the code you’ll need to input as Kate to solve the last puzzle and finally take care of Junta’s Coffer.
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.
