Solving The Shimmersand Puzzle

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

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.

Well That Was Disappointing, lol.

So, I spent some time exploring the Beta yesterday and I was interested to see what “Potion of Illusion” turned you into. All it says in the description is that it “transforms the imbiber look like someone else”, so I spent a good 2 hours leveling my Alchemy to be able to learn to make it at skill level 460, and then flying/swimming around in the new zones looking for herbs. I was all excited when I finally gathered the mats to make just one of these potions, and this is what happened…

So disappointing! I guess the potion isn’t working in the Beta yet, and I wasted so much time just to see what it would do, lol. I can’t even purchase the mats to make another potion and try again, as all the Cataclysm herbs go for about 3300g a piece, lol. I will perhaps try to capture the magic of the Potion of Illusion again in a few weeks!
