Solving The Shimmersand Puzzle

The Shimmersand puzzle is located at 6412, 7720. I tried finding a step by step solution like this while working on it today but couldn’t, so I figured I’d share how I solved it in case anyone else is having trouble with it.

This way will work to solve the puzzle if all the lights are in the default position (everything lit except for the center). If they aren’t  in that position, wait a few minutes until the puzzle resets or you can just keep clicking lights until you run out of moves. You complete the puzzle by having no lights on except for the one in the center.

Number the lights from 1 to 33 starting in the top left corner as shown in my picture. Then click the lights in the following order.

15 – 17
28 – 16
21 – 23
07 – 21
16 – 28
31 – 23
24 – 22
21 – 23
26 – 24
23 – 25
32 – 24
24 – 26
33 – 25
26 – 24
12 – 26
27 – 25
13 – 27
24 – 26
27 – 25
10 – 12
25 – 11
12 – 10
03 – 11
10 -12
08 -10
01 – 09
09 – 11
02 – 10
17 – 05
12 -10
05 – 17

Here’s a video of me using this method if you find it easier to just follow along that way.

    Dominga : Yaay, Welcome to Rift! 🙂 I don’t visit too many Rift websites but I believe Rift Junkies have some good info! http://www.riftjunkies.com/

    Also you could check out a couple Rift podcasts, The Rift Podcast http://www.riftpodcast.com/ is good and even though they aren’t making any more new episodes, the early ones still have some good info!
    Rift Watchers is also very good! http://www.riftwatchers.com/

    Hopefully that helps!
