In Storm Legion the concept of puzzles has changed. The main priority is no longer finding the puzzle, but collecting the artifact set related to the puzzle. Without completing the artifact set you won’t be able to interact with the puzzle.
For the City Core puzzle you will have to collect the artifact set called “A Knight’s Tour”.
The artifacts for this set can be found only in the area of City Core.
This set is not very hard to complete. There are a total of six artifacts in the set:
1. A Knight’s Tour Page 1 – white quality artifact.
2. A Knight’s Tour Page 2 – blue quality artifact. Probably hidden on some mountain.
3. A Knight’s Tour Page 3 – green quality artifact, the easiest one to find out of the entire set.
4. A Knight’s Tour Page 4 – white quality artifact.
5. A Knight’s Tour Page 5 – green quality artifact.
6. A Knight’s Tour Page 6 – white quality artifact.
When you complete the set you will get a Glowing Chest and a book called “A Knight’s Tour”. The book is bind on pick up so it can’t be sold on the auction house or traded.
Once you complete the set, collect the book and then you are good to go.
City Core Puzzle Location
To get to the puzzle you need to walk up a vine and jump on a roof. The vine in question is located at exit of Miran Gate, coords: 6984, 10036. Go up the vine, jump on the roof and go all the way to the end of the roof. In the middle tower you will see a statue (knight) that you can click. Use it and it will take you to the puzzle.
City Core Puzzle Solution
If you are familiar with the game of chess you probably heard about the Knight’s Tour. The objective of the game is to touch every square on a 6 by 6 board using the L shaped moves of a Knight from a chess game.
You control the Knight using the 8 idols under the board. Each idol triggers a certain L move as seen in the image above.
To complete the puzzle you have to move the night around and touch each glyph 3 times in order to make them glow white. When you touch them once they turn Green, Blue on the second touch and White on the 3rd touch. If you touch them a 4th time they turn Red again.
I would suggest getting used to the controls first. Don’t be shy to click around until you understand how the controls work and then you can focus on turning all the glyphs white. The puzzle is easy to solve so feel free to experiment, you can’t break it
After all the runes turn white you will receive the key that opens the chest.
