How to solve the Electro Seelie Lightning Strike Probe puzzle under Shirikoro Peak in Genshin Impact

Carefully guide the Seelies to solve this puzzle.

Inazuma's Lightning Strike Probes are some of the most confusing puzzles to solve in the game, especially when they're coupled with unpredictable sources of Electro, such as Seelies. You'll find one such puzzle in Shirikoro Peak's underground ruin.

To locate the puzzle, go to Shirikoro Peak and jump down until you reach the underground ruin. Once inside, turn left until you see the stairway leading down to the watery area. The path beyond the water will be blocked until you destroy the wall with a Thunderbird carving using the Peculiar Pinion Gadget. When the wall is broken, follow the path inside to find four Lightning Strike Probes and three Electro Seelies.

At this point, three out of four Lightning Strike Probes should be activated. You can tell they're activated by the purple glow surrounding them. The last inactive Probe is circled in the image above. You need to use a little bit of Electro to force it to face left and complete the puzzle.

To activate the final Probe, approach the nearby Seelie but do not touch it. When you get near the Seelie, it will release a dose of Electro, which you need to control the Probe. Once you're hit by the Seelie's Electro, step in front of the last Lightning Strike Probe until it locks, completing the puzzle. You'll be rewarded with a Precious Chest for your effort.
