  • There's got to be a way to get that chest

The puzzle is located at (8337, 6200) in the Droughtlands.

Each cage has a represented color which is at the back of the cage. Work your way clockwise around the circle from the cage with the chest. When the color in the front matches the color on the back, quickly right-click to lock it in (see video below). The last cage should be the one with the chest, and if done correctly, it will open giving you a key to receive your loot.

Make sure you click as soon as it switches to the right colour. I had to be pretty quick on the clicking. If I was clicking half a second too late, even if the right colour was still showing, it would fail.

As far as I can see, there is no set color pattern. As long as you just click the same color from the inside of the cage as the outside of the cage, it is cake. But like Daevon said, try to click right as it is changing to the color you need.

the color pattern I think changes. I just did it and pattern was totaly dif, but you do need to click it as soon as it changes or it wont unlock.

The gem on the back of the cages' colors do eventually change but that takes a long time. The rules are still the same: Click the gem on the front of the cage when it matches the color on the back of the cage.

As stated by charlsu, the location for this puzzle is at 8339 6203.

There is a ring of cages, each cage has TWO lights at the top of each. If standing in the center the ring of cages, you could say that there are lights "inside" and "outside"..
The lights on the inside change colors at a moderate rate, the outside did not change at all while I was doing this, but that doesn't mean that they wont change for you.

The objective here is to click on each cage's <inside> light just as soon as it matches the light that's on the outside of that cage...STARTING with the cage that has the chest inside of it.
Each time you get it right, the chest will then vanish and reappear inside the next cage (again, going clockwise). At the last cage (you'll know when it's done), the cage will open and the chest
is all yours.

If you make a mistake, there will be a tiny explosion and the chest will move back to it's first cage, and you will have to do this all over again. Don't worry though, this is one of the easier puzzles.

So, start by standing in the center of all the cages,
face the cage with the chest in it, walk up to it close enough to click on the light on the inside...and stand with your camera so you can see both lights on that cage..
As soon as the light on the inside matched the light on the outside, clicky on the light.
Move to the next cage (on the right) going clockwise....repeat...

Have fun, hope this made it clear enough.
