Genshin Impact Date’s Challenge World Quest: Detailed walkthrough
The beginning of the quest
Players need to solve the first puzzle, before talking to Date. To resolve the puzzle, the player needs to switch between Whitenight and Evernight by hitting the nearby mechanism. A Labyrinth will be visible, if it is Evernight. The players will find four hydro pillars, inside the labyrinth. However, the pillars won’t be visible, since the pathway will be blocked. Players must solve the puzzle in the Labyrinth/Maze to reach them.
Evernight temple maze
Upon entering the Labyrinth at night, players will have to switch to Whitenight, by activating the switch present on the west side. Players must activate the Triangular Mechanisms by hitting them near the switch. In this way, the wall of the labyrinth will move so the player can reach inside.
Meeting with Date
Players must interact with the switch to switch to Evernight. When the player does this, the Labyrinth will reappear, but with all 4 pillars accessible this time. Then, they must jump down and use their hydro attacks to activate the 4 pillars present inside the labyrinth.
