How to solve the Runic Ward Chest puzzle in Dragonflight

One of the doors opened up in the Zskera Vaults will have a chest that's locked by four floating runes over it. Players have to figure out what order to hit the runes in before the chest opens, but there seems to be an issue with the chest.

At the time of release, many players are reporting the chest is bugged and can't be opened at all. Others are reporting hitting the runes in the order of 2-4-3-1 opens up the chest. It appears that mileage may vary when trying to open this one up, and it's a shame because Zskera Vault Keys aren't the easiest thing in the world to obtain.

What rewards are in the Zskera Vaults in Dragonflight?

Having a chest that can't be opened up is rough as it has a Primordial Gem stone inside that will be used with the Onyx Annulet. These gems all have different uses that depend on the spec being used, so opening up as many doors as possible is essential to finding what works best for the desired spec.

Since the Onyx Annulet can be upgraded to 424 item level, players will want to prioritize finding the right stats for it, and that means opening up doors in the vault. They'll just have to hope the door they open doesn't have a Runic Ward Chest on the other side at the moment.
