There is plenty of exploration to take part in the Great Red Sand desert of Sumeru in Genshin Impact. For a place that’s supposed to be devoid of life, there is quite a lot to discover for players who are ready to look. If you’ve stumbled upon some odd Chess Pieces for instance and begun to place them on the board, you might be wondering what to do next.

After discovering the five missing pieces from the Chess board in Safhe Shatranj and returning them to complete the set of seven pieces by placing them on their spots, you will have to activate them. Each of the seven Chess Pieces has a corresponding Activation Device located somewhere in the desert. In this guide, we will help you find and activate them all.
