Players partaking in the Lost Runes quest have hit a roadblock with Diablo Immortal's lamp puzzle.
The Lost Runes quest picks up when players enter the Library of Zoltun Kulle and encounter the statue of the Curator. It should automatically begin once they're within range and it requires players to light all nine lamps currently placed within a 2x2 square grid. There are three lines of lamps with three lamps in each one.
As with most similar mini-games from other titles, touching a single lamp will affect those around it. In Diablo Immortal, touching a single lamp will cause four balls of fire to be thrown in the four cardinal directions around it — either lighting or extinguishing the lamps it encounters.
Fortunately, the game does allow players to restart the puzzle by interacting with a rune in the same room, so they can try as many times as they'd like. However, for those who don't have the time to engage with this puzzle for gods know how long, we've written the solution below.
How to Solve the Lamp Puzzle in Diablo Immortal
To solve the lamp puzzle:
- Start from the westernmost corner of the grid and light the corner lamp. This will light the top middle lamp.
- Move east (right) toward the northern corner and activate that corner lamp. This will extinguish the top-middle lamp but keep the corner lit.
- Repeat this process moving clockwise around the corners of the grid, starting with the easternmost corner lamp and moving to the southern corner lamp.
- Light the lamp in the very center.
If done correctly, all lamps should be lit, and players can continue with the quest.
