How to complete Irate Iron Chunk in the Varuna Gatha Sumeru World Questline in Genshin Impact
Defeat the Ruin Guard
Before starting, prepare a battle-ready team—preferably one strong enough to defeat Ruin Graders, as you need to defeat them later. Once you're ready, follow the quest marker to the entrance of the Ruins of Dahri, where you'll find Arabalika facing off against a Ruin Guard. Once that's done, he'll test your abilities by asking you to battle against three Ruin Guards across three checkpoints. Use the quest marker to find and defeat all of them.
Find the mechanism and, activate it & find the "branch" with Arabilaka
After defeating the third Ruin Guard, you'll be asked to find a mechanism and activate it. It's located on the same platform, so just turn to the corner and interact with the mechanism to drain the water in the pool. This will open up an entrance leading underground.
Glide down to the bottom of the opening to find a clearing with inactive Ruin Guards and the branch statue at the center. Approach it to proceed with the quest.
Make the three "leaves" turn towards the "branch"
The green traces will lead you to the location of the three leaf statues in the area. Simply interact with rotating each of the leaf statues until the sharp point is facing the branch statue in the center. Once all three have been correctly rotated, two Ruin Graders will appear. Defeat them to prompt dialogue and complete the World Quest.
Once all three World Quests under Varuna Gatha are done, you must speak with the four Aranara in the rest spot in Apam Woods to initiate the next part of the questline: A Prayer for Rain on the Fecund Land.
