Special musical instruments have been added to reed pipes Genshin Impact with the latest update. They are used in various puzzles, for solving you can get rich or precious chests. Today we will tell you how to find and solve all the riddles involving reed flutes.
Where can you find all the reed pipe puzzles?
There are currently 11 puzzles available in Genshin Impact that use these tools, but they will surely be added to more regions in the future. The puzzles are not related to each other in any way, so players are free to solve them in any order.
How to solve riddles with reed pipes
To activate the tongue pipes, you must first find them dew bubbles. Some puzzles have them available near the tools, while others require you to search dewy branchescapable of producing such bulbs.
You can move the floating balls power of a xenochrome spherical octopus. Often you will find devices on the surface that allow you to acquire this skill. Underwater you will have to find the creature and borrow its skills.
Next to each puzzle is a different device. When you interact with it, you will see the correct sequence for activating the pipes. Small spheres, from one to five, appear above the tools. It is in the same order that the bubbles must explode to create waves. A character with a bow is best suited for this.

From the Epicles Opera House, follow the path south. On the map you will see a pier icon – go here. Nearby, right on the coast, there is a device for obtaining the ability of a xenochrome octopus. Use the skill on the floating balls to move them: one ball to the two pipes on the left and one bell to the instrument on the right. Shoot the left ball first, then the right one.

From the teleporter in this area, go to the shore and examine the device, which will show the correct sequence. In fact, you don’t even need to move any of the bubbles: just shoot them in the same order as in the screenshot below. As a reward you will receive a precious chest.

The next puzzle is underwater. Go to the cave entrance at the ruins of Fort Charybdis and dive. You’ll immediately see some bubbles and octopuses floating around. Borrow the creature’s ability and move the ball from below closer to the first pipe. When it is on the lower level, push it to the second level so that the wave covers two devices at once. Rise a little higher, hit the right sphere first and then the left.
A rich chest will appear and nearby you will find a time trial. If you manage to complete it within 60 seconds, you will receive a precious chest as a reward.

You can reach the next puzzle using the teleporter, which is located next to the fast travel point. The pipes await you at the top level of the tower. As you rise, you will see four devices that need to be activated using two bubbles.
The second is on the large cog at the top (use another teleporter). Bring the sphere down and connect it to the ball in the middle. The result will be a huge sphere, which, when destroyed, will snag all the tools. As a reward, players can explore a rich chest.
Reed pipes no. 5
Jump down from the previous place and dive underwater. On the destroyed bridge you will see a bell and an octopus floating nearby. Borrow the creature’s ability – with its help you need to extend the lifting column and lower the pipe.
Then you simply burst open the orb and take the contents of the rich chest.
Reed pipes no. 6
Return to the continent and explore the base of the mountain east of Lucin Fountain. First you need to take any character from the Anemo element and activate the hydrototem. A bubble will appear in the flower to its right. Wait a moment until the wind has picked up the ball and it starts to rise.
The ball will remain hanging opposite the pipes for some time. If you miss the moment, the sphere will rise on the rock – in this case you will not be able to activate the tools. You will have to use the xenochrome octopus’ skills to lower the ball lower or simply burst it.
For this challenge you will receive a precious chest.
Reed pipes no. 7
You don’t even have to do anything to solve the following riddle. Go to the Hydro Archon statue in this area and head to the water. You’ll see a bubble that you just have to shoot to reveal a rich chest.
Reed pipes no. 8
From the previous location, follow the riverbed to find a new puzzle. Take the xenochrome octopus’ abilities and move the left ball so that the area of effect reaches the second bubble. Shoot the first orb.

The next spot with the pipes is at the top of the hill between Marco Station and the Weeping Willow near the lake. There is no need to invent anything here – just wait until the plant throws out another bell. You must shoot at the moment when the ball flies at device level.
Reed pipes no. 10
From the previous puzzle, run to the Weeping Willow near the lake and dive under water. Directly under the tree you will see a mysterious altar, if you communicate with it, you will understand only one word: “bubble”. If you look around, you will find contaminated bacterial slime (purple crystals) – these can be cleaned using the xenochrome octopus skill. But first he must be released.
Explore the area and find the Xenochrome Ostrobe swimming in the company of its relatives. Use his ability on the algae holding the octopus. Return to the contaminated slime and cleanse it – first the smaller crystal, then the large one. After you do this, the plant will release a bell. Move him to the altar and position him so that he is between the two pipes that need to be activated first. When it bursts, they will be activated first and a little later the wave will reach the third device.
Opening a rich chest will reveal a xenochrome jellyfish. With his help you can destroy the rocks and open a passage to the cave.
Reed pipes no. 11
The last reed pipe puzzle in the new region is located in the eastern part of the area between the small island. Use the device to acquire xenochrome octopus skills and place the orbs as shown in the screenshot below. Shoot the bell on the left and wait for the waves to activate all the tools.
A precious chest becomes available as a reward for solving the puzzle.
