In The Chasm of Genshin Impact, many cranes have been left behind by the miner. In addition, there are Spoutrocks stones that can enhance players' jumping ability. Using these two mechanisms, they can quickly reach higher places.

2) Bedrock Key

The Liyue Qixing sets up a few magical arrays around the new area. Travelers need to find a way to dispel these setups if they want to explore The Chasm. The hint here is to destroy the Bedrock Keys that surround the area.

3) Cage-Shaped Geo Formations

Natural precipitates occur around the Bedrock Keys used to seal The Chasm by hitting them with Geogranum littered around the area. This will cause the Bedrock Key to fire crystal projectiles.

The direction in which they were hit is related to the firing direction. The Bedrock Key will be affected by the crystal projectiles.

4) Unique Rock Pillars

Unique Rock Pillars will cause a 'resonant quake' with other similar rock pillars and certain Geo Constructs when hit by explosions or blunt force trauma. Similar large rock pillars can also be found around The Chasm. Players need to pay attention, observe the surrounding environments, and use resonances from the Unique Rock Pillars to solve puzzles.

5) Unique Rocks

In addition to the Unique Rock Pillars, there is a strange, uniquely-shaped rock nearby linked to the special rock pillars. It appears to be able to pick up on some of the pillars' resonance. Maybe the quantity of symbols on the rock has something to do with how many resonances it gets in a short time.

6) Plate pressure

In The Chasm, players can see faint glowing pyramids in the air when a certain mechanism is pressed and triggered. They can follow the direction of the pyramid's extension and find the traces of Treasure Chests.

The pressure plate seems to be almost similar to Liyue's old area, so players won't have any problems understanding how it works.
