Wondering how to activate the mechanism in Genshin Impact? The Genshin Impact 2.6 update has arrived, bringing with it plenty of new content, including Ayato, Ayaka’s brother, a new Genshin Impact character on the current Genshin Impact banner – and a brand new area called the Chasm.
Down in these mysterious underground mines, there are a series of tasks you are asked to undertake as part of a world quest chain called ‘The Chasm Delvers’. One of these quests, titled ‘The Heavenly Stone’s Debris’, requires you to talk to Zhiqiong and then activate the mechanism in the Chasm. There are three mechanisms you must activate to progress further.
However, some players are having trouble activating these mechanisms due to the mysterious purple slime in the way. You can remove this slime using the Lumenstone Adjuvant gadget, but you must first upgrade the gadget to level two. Here’s everything you need to know in order to activate the mechanism in the Chasm in Genshin Impact.
How to activate the mechanism
This part of The Heavenly Stone’s Debris quest takes place in the Stony Halls, south of the main mining area in the Chasm. There are three mechanisms on the cavern floor beneath you, marked on your map – but they’re not working due to globs of purple ooze nearby, known as Oozing Concretions. To activate the mechanism, use your Lumenstone Adjuvant gadget to remove the Oozing Concretions near the mechanism.
- The first mechanism is straightforward; remove the slime and then activate the mechanism
- The second mechanism is very similar, but after you remove the ooze, you must defeat the enemy that appears before activating the mechanism
- The third mechanism requires you to scale a cliff; the offending slime is a short distance around the corner from the mechanism itself. Upon removing the ooze, you can activate the final mechanism and complete the quest
If you’re having trouble removing the purple slime, note that your Lumenstone Adjuvant must be level two or above to remove Oozing Concretions. It also needs to be refilled with energy from the nearby blue orbs.
To enhance your Lumenstone Adjuvant, speak to Jinwu. You need 16 Lumenspar to upgrade it to level one, and eight Lumenspar and one Lumenstone Ore to upgrade it to level two.
