Ardent Domain Puzzle - Short Circuit
As with all Storm Legion puzzles you need to complete an artifact set before you can start.
For the Ardent Domain puzzle you need to complete the artifact set called Circuit Diagrams.
This is a level 60 artifact set, you can find all these artifacts while hunting in Ardent Domain. They are normal white artifacts.
If you have completed the cheevo ‘it goes to eleven’ then you can access a vendor by clicking any of the Henges who will sell you the artifacts.. However the artifacts are very expensive from this vendor, you are much better off doing a couple of artifact hunting runs in Ardent Domain and then finishing off the set using the auction house.
When you hand in the artifact set you will be given a collection of pages from Circuit Diagrams.

She will tell you that to buy the full book you will need 9 bars of hair covered soap.
You need to farm these bars of soap in Steppes of Infinity.
Take the Zerzala portal into Steppes and head over to the entrance of the Arcanum Conservatory at /setwaypoint 15434 7187
Go down into the tunnel, find the junction and turn left. This will take you into a tunnel that is filled with water. You need to follow this tunnel all the way down.. its very long! (as long as you keep swimming you shouldn’t need any underwater breathing pot for this, the tunnel isn’t long enough for you to die).
When you reach the end you will earn the cheevo ‘deep learning’.
You will notice there is a lever in front of you with an odd quest marker, click it and it will activate a teleport which you can then use to get up and down to this room in the future. Click the teleport pad next to the lever to go up, then the teleport pad at /setwaypoint 15363 7285 to go back down.
Also in the room is a questgiver, you will need to take the quest and complete it and then take the next quest and complete that. Once you have finished these quests the room will be filled with trolls called devolved squatters..
Note: You may have already been down here and done the quests during the Steppes questline!
Watch your general chat and you will see that they drop bars of soap..
Look around on the floor for them.. the soap doesn’t sparkle and is the same colour as most of the floor, so they can be hard to spot, but you will soon get the hang of it..
Once you have 9 bars you can go back to Omi in Tempest Bay canals /setwaypoint 12756 11719 and buy the full book.
Right click the book to collect it.
The storm legion puzzle books are all listed at the top of your book collection on your character screen. You can easily check which books you have.
The book you need for the Ardent Domain puzzle is ‘Circuit Diagrams‘.
