Genshin Impact Salacia Plain Red Barrier Hydroculus Puzzle Solution
You will find the Red Barrier at the location marked on the map above on the northeast side of Salacia Plain, and the puzzle will be right next to it. In order to solve it, take the energy of the Fontemer Aberrants Crabs or Fish near it and go towards the left side of the barrier near the blue-colored orb and attack it using your elemental power to move it.
Now, you will see a golden ring behind you, and you need to go near it and attack it to make the orb go inside it. After that, go towards the opposite side of the barrier, and you will see water flowing through a golden ring under a broken bridge. You will have to attack the ring and block the water flow using the character's shield, and the orb will attach to the ring.
Then, go near the Red Barrier, and you will see two short pillar-type mechanics. Interact with them to open the barrier and unlock the chest in it and collect your rewards along with Hydroculus.
