Wondrous Shadows Event Guide (Riddle 1 – 3)

Wondrous Shadows is an event that is part of the second part of the version 2.4 update, Fleeting Colors in Flight. During this event, travellers will have to solve a series of puzzles to earn rewards that include not Affluence Talisman as well as Primogems.

How the event works

First and foremost, you have to activate the event. This can be done by teleporting to Liyue harbour and finding the NPC named Yuan Rong. She can be found near the docks. After you talk to her, she’ll explain the game to you.

Basically, you’ll be given the model of an object. What you have to do is to turn and align it until the shadow of the said model makes it clear what the object is supposed to be. This can be tricky which is why there will be a progress bar on the side that will let you know if you’re headed in the right direction or not.

Once the model has been aligned, the object will reveal itself and you’ll earn your rewards!

Riddle 1

The object from the first riddle is a Censer. This is an object used in religious ceremonies to light incense. Now, when you first receive the model, it’ll have many cuts that will allow light through pass through. You have to turn the model until light can’t pass through the gaps anymore and the model looks something like the image above.

Riddle 2

In the second riddle, while it may not look like it, the model is a ship. Remember to turn and align the pieces until it looks something like the image above.

Riddle 3

While it may not look like it in the beginning, the model in the third riddle is a kite. For this, remember to lock the shadow in place so that you turn the model clockwise or anti-clockwise. Instructions on how to lock the shadow will be given right next to the model. For PC, it is done by clicking the right mouse button.


For every riddle you solve, you’ll receive the following rewards:

  • 30 Primogems
  • 200 Affluence Talismans
  • 30,000 Mora
